Having Trouble with Stairs? Why not a Home Elevator?
Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators LLC is the designer and manufacturer of the vacuum elevator. PVE currently manufactures three versions of its air driven residential elevators, ranging from single to a three-passenger, wheelchair-accessible home elevator. All of PVE’s vacuum home lift systems are capable of up to a 50 foot (15m) vertical rise over as many as five stops. The unique design of the vacuum residential elevator is a perfect choice for any retrofit or new construction project and will enhance the value of one's home without the consuming footprint of a traditional home elevator. The innovative home elevator does not require any pre‐construction shaft, pit or machine room and can be installed in as little as three days. By using a vacuum pump to generate areas of higher and lower atmospheric pressure within the cylinder hoist way, the unit smoothly moves between floors while using much less energy than other home elevators. PVE elevators are now available in Maine. Mike Jones and Ginny Savage of Breakwater Design & Build, Inc have completed the training and provide sales and installation services.
