Continue reading to discover how you can integrate an elegantly engineered elevator into your residence.
What is a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator?
Known alternatively as a tube or vacuum elevator, a pneumatic elevator showcases that an aesthetically pleasing and efficient residential elevator need not occupy extensive space. Unlike conventional elevators, these do not necessitate the construction of a pit, allowing for installation in smaller areas with reduced building requirements.
The unique feature of a pneumatic elevator is its self-contained, panoramic shaft. Made of transparent, air-tight plexiglass, this tube includes a high-tech vacuum system at the top. The elevator car, a plexiglass cylinder within the tube, ascends gently as the vacuum extracts air from the shaft’s top, offering riders a stunning 360-degree view during floor-to-floor transit.

While pneumatic elevators are compact enough to be placed in more hidden areas of the home, many clients opt to place them in an open and highly visible area and can be customized with finishes to match your decor.
The sleek and aesthetically pleasing look fits seamlessly into any home interior. Riders enjoy a panoramic view from inside the car, and the view from the outside is just as impressive.
Not only are Pneumatic elevators beautiful, they are powered by air inside the shaft which requires minimal energy consumption.
Pneumatic elevators only require a single phase power supply to operate. This level of energy consumption is akin to that of a washer and dryer, making a minor impact on the overall energy use levels in the home. Plus, the elevators come with the option to run on solar energy, making them a sustainable choice.
Safety is paramount when it comes to selecting a home elevator. These air-driven home elevators meet the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Safety Codes for Elevators. Pneumatic elevators have been on the market for over a decade and have a track record of safety and reliability.
Additionally, pneumatic elevators have a range of safety features that are activated in the event of an emergency. For example: in the event of a power failure, a pneumatic elevator is programmed to descend at a designated speed until it reaches the ground level.
