Wheelchair accessible home lift

Vacuum Elevator PVE52

The pneumatic vacuum elevator PVE52 model is specially designed for people with reduced mobility. This model pneumatic vacuum elevator allows the possibility of transporting a passenger in a wheelchair.

The vacuum elevator PVE52 has an exterior diameter of 1.36 cm and accommodates up to three people (238 kg). Available in two, three and four stops (max. height 10.5m ) it is ideal for those who want a spacious and panoramic residential elevator in their home.

Like other models of vacuum elevators the PVE52 is installed on the existing floor and is an elevator that does not require a machine room or pit, allowing for a clean, quick and easy installation.

There are many wheelchair home lifts, but only our pneumatic vacuum elevator PVE52 gives you the space and security you need with a spectacular design. The exterior cylinder of the biggest of our vacuum elevators is made of aluminum and transparent polycarbonate. It is also the only model with stainless steel interior cabin. A perfect finish!

The vacuum elevator greatly reduces energy costs and maintenance, as our pneumatic vacuum elevator works without pulleys or pistons. This allows for low energy consumption during ascent and zero during descent. The pneumatic vacuum elevators are econfriendly elevators.

Standard Model

  • Minimum height required at the ground floor is 92” (2,34 m).
  • Minimum required height at the upper floor is 107” (2,70 m).
  • Diameter of finished through floor hole must be 5411/16” (1,46m).
  • When installing a three or four floor elevator, all openings circular perforations should be perfectly aligned.
  • The electric feed shall be 220VAC single phase through an independent line of conductors of AWG N° 10 (6mm ); there shall be ground connection and a thermo-magnetic switch of 35A to be used exclusively for the elevator. The electrical supply is to be near the head (elevator’s top portion) and it is required to leave the female electrical receptacle at the top center of the elevator.
  • 220VAC (no exceptions 220VAC must be provided, 210VAC or 230VAC is not acceptable, if installation does not have 220VAC on a regular basis, a voltage regulator or transformer must be installed by home owner). Voltage fluctuations are not covere by the warranty.
  • If installing a phone line a phone jack is to be provided near the power supply, but isolated.
  • It is strongly recommended that a Buck Boost or voltage stabilizer be installed along with the electrical work to prevent any damage to electrical components due to voltage fluctuation.
  • When installing the elevator, consider the total dimensions, as a small room will generate a higher noise level. Therefore, it is not advisable to install the split motor in a very small facility.
  • There must be an opening to make way for the cylinders of 54 11/16” (1,39 m) in diameter and of 92” (2,34 m) in length down to the ground floor. This access may be through door or window openings.

  • Remote location of head unit can be accommodated up to 30 linear feet (10 m) away from the elevator.
  • Split unit connections require two 4” (10cm) PVC pipes to run the distance from the top of the upper floor cylinder split plate to the remote location of the head unit.
  • Air supply to split unit has to be drawn from interior of residence (proper housing of head unit and air duct to interior of home required)
