Wheelchair Accessible Elevator: the Vacuum Elevator model PVE52

The lack of mobility seriously affects the lives of people with disabilities and limits the activities of their daily living. Many families are living in homes that are not accessible and are forced to adapt their home for various reasons.

Vacuum elevators are a simple and effective solution to gaining accessibility in the home and can be installed in as little as one to two days. Some of the main conveniences of vacuum elevators is the fact that there is no shaft, pit, or machine room required, meaning much less construction required to accommodate the elevator.

One in five households have a person with a disability or reduced mobility. Adapting a home for a person with a physical disability means making all areas of the home accesible to ensure a positive quality of life. That means both upstairs and downstairs!

There are many things to consider to ensure complete independence and comfort in a home: doors, corridors and turning points, non-slip floors without irregularities, inside cabinets, bathrooms and most importantly, the stairs! Stairs and different floor levels are without question the element that most hinders mobility of the affected person.

A possible solution to the stairs is the stair lift installation with a seat or platform. These solutions have two main drawbacks. For the stairlift with a seat, persons are still reliant upon another person to help them get in and out of the seat, not to mention the fact that it is not as aesthetically pleasing as most would hope for. If we choose a stair platform the main problem we are going to find is the fact that it takes up a significant amount of space, and it is also intended more specifically for commercial style installations.

Stairs and different floor levels are without question the element that most hinders mobility of the affected person.

Making a multi level home accesible is not an impossible task and vacuum elevators are the most convenient and easisest solution to gaining access to the upper floors. For persons in a wheelchair, the PVE52 vacuum elevator can be installed in any home and act perfectly as lifts for the disabled. The fact that they do not a need pit or machine room and can be installed in about 48 – 72 hours, makes it very appealing.
