Vacuum Elevator: Eco-Friendly Elevator Powered by AIR
The revolutionary technology of the vacuum elevator has changed the way people and goods are being transported vertically within their homes, and furthermore, has done so in an environmentally friendly manner.
Rather than using cables or pistons, the unique residential elevator is powered by one of the most abundant resources in the world… AIR!
When installing an elevator in a detached house, many are concerned with the impact this may have on the increase in electricity bill. PVE in its quest to manufacture elevators committed to the environment, has developed advanced technology to ensure minimum energy consumption in our pneumatic vacuum elevators.
Saying that vacuum elevators consume less electricity than any other appliance in a common house is easy to explain, due to the fact that its operation utilizes one of the most abundant natural resources in the world: air.
The pneumatic vacuum elevator only requires energy during the ascent and simply uses gravity to descend.
Thanks to its innovative vacuum drive system where everything is controlled by air pressure, these home residential elevators require little energy to descend as the air is used instead of motors and mechanical force.
This system is highly secure because in the event of a power failure, the elevator car does not get stuck between two levels as happens commonly with traditional lifts, but rather gently and slowly descends down to the next floor.
PVE’s philosophy is always to reflect greater care for the enviroment and any reduction in energy consumption implies greater efficiency to the environment. In addition to being environmentally friendly, our product is designed to be safe, reliable, and requires very little maintenance over time.
The installation of our elevators is completed in less than 48 hours and very little waste is generated due to the careful design and simplicity of the elevator. Unlike traditional elevators such as hydraulic style systems, vacuum elevators do not use materials harmful to the environment such as lubricants or oils because no cables or pistons are required.
Investing in a vacuum elevator for your single family home will provide you with an elevator that requires less maintenance than conventional elevators. Additionally, there is very minimal construction and construction materials required for the installation, making it more environmentally friendly and cost-effective. All of these are important reasons to choose a vacuum elevator if you are looking to solve a problem of vertical access in the home and still be committed to the environment.View all
