Benefits of vacuum elevator
Vacuum Elevators have a singular, circular design that permits panoramic visibility and a 360 degree experience while traveling between floors.
- SPACE-SAVING SOLUTION
These home elevators occupy less space as compared to traditional elevators. It offers more flexibility for retro-fit and new construction projects.
- SELF-SUPPORTING LIFT
They are fully enclosed elevator which simply rests on the prevailing ground floor. Hence there is no need of a shaft, pit or machine room.
- ECO-FRIENDLY SYSTEM
Cleanest technology on the market. Unlike other drive systems, harmful oils, gases or lubricants are not required.
- MINIMAL MAINTENANCE
Per PVE® certification, the primary care for a PVE® Elevator is after 15,000 lifts or roughly 5 years.
- PLUG & PLAY OPERATION
220 Volt, single phase power supply. They are energy efficient residential elevators that plug into your wall.
- TRANSPORTABLE ELEVATOR
If ever you progress, you'll call the authorized dealer who installed the unit, disassemble the elevator and reinstall it in another home.
How do vacuum elevators work?
The Vacuum Elevator blends a smooth vertical cylinder with a coaxial car that moves up and down through air suction. The principle operation of the elevator relies on the ascending push generated by the difference between the air pressure on the top of the car and therefore the air pressure under the car. Depression (vacuum) required to lift the car is achieved by turbines operating as exhaust fans which are located at the highest of the elevator.
- The piston gear surrounded by a sliding air tight seal allows an almost frictionless movement and hoists the car because of the pneumatic depression generated on the upper part.
- A valve regulating inflow of air controls the pneumatic depression, enables descent and controls the speed of the car.
- The lower part of the shaft is open to ensure free entrance of air at air pressure.
- At each floor or level, perimeter seals on the door are self-sealing because of the action of the air pressure.
- The car has locking devices to prevent at the upper and lower limits of travel.
- A safe braking device (chute) activates just in case of free fall.
Components used for vacuum elevators:
The cylinder may be a transparent tube built around an aluminum steel structure. The wall of the tubes is formed of polycarbonate sheets. The tube comprises a modular section, which easily can fit into each other. The steel is employed to form the roof of the tube, which ensures airtight closings with suction valves and inlets.
The car moves through the rail. The rail is supported by the cylinder. The walls round the car are made from polycarbonate panels. An anchoring system is installed within the cars that activate on reaching the required floors and may provide precise and smooth stops. It consists of a system to lock the car.
The suction assembly or head unit is found at the top of the tube where turbines, valves, and other controls are located. The control cabinet may be a metal box housing with a pneumatic controller board and other electrical devices. The top unit is placed on an equivalent tube that holds the car or installed separately as a split unit at a distance of up to 10 meters from the lift. The frame of the suction assembly is usually made from fiberglass. The fabrication of elevator parts, construction, and testing and commissioning of the elevators should be done by well-trained elevator technicians.
Features and specification
Unlike traditional home elevators, Vacuum Elevators are often placed anywhere in one’s home, requiring no shaft, pit or machine room to work. This unique design feature, found only in Vacuum Elevators, provides infinite design possibilities for any residential, marine or stage application. Vacuum Elevators can accommodate any home and need significantly less space than a standard home elevator.
Typically, traditional home elevators are placed in closed spaces and the elevator isn’t visible. Additionally, they require much more construction and excavation to the house, with the homeowner having to create the shaft to accommodate the cabin, dig a pit to satisfy code requirements, and supply ample space for a machine room. This construction can take months to finish. They also utilize harmful oils and lubricants which may be detrimental to the environment and need yearly maintenance which may grow in cost over time.
While Vacuum Elevators are often installed in closed quarters, we've found that always customers keep the Vacuum Elevator out in the open, using it as an indoor design feature for his or her home. Compared to traditional elevators, the Vacuum Elevator has only a few pre-construction requirements, with no drilling or excavation needed. The elevator rests on the exist ground floor. This makes for a significantly faster installation time. The Vacuum Elevator are often installed in one’s range in as little together to 3 days. Rings are provided above and below the elevator to supply a clean, crisp appearance. The Vacuum Elevator also can be balcony mounted and utilizes a balcony band to stabilize the lift. The Vacuum Elevator is all self-contained with the top unit located on-top on the elevator. The top unit houses all the mechanics to work the lift and may be remotely located up to 30 linear feet away.

The top unit houses all the mechanics to work the lift and may be remotely located up to 30 linear feet away. While traditional elevators use harmful oils and lubricants, Vacuum Elevators are the sole lifts powered by the most-abundant resource within the world. Air is just flushed back to the elevator and gravity is employed to bring you down. The power supply wanted to generate the vacuum suction is merely a 220 VAC, 25-35 amp single-phase power supply, which is analogous to the energy consumption of a washer and dryer. These are plug and play home elevators, and only consume electricity when generating lift.
