If you want to install an elevator to improve mobility in your home, you have many options. Several elevator systems are available, including hydraulic, cable-driven, and pneumatic models.
A pneumatic, or vacuum, elevator offers several advantages compared to other types. A vacuum elevator does not require excavation or construction for a pit or machine room that is needed for other types of elevators. A pneumatic elevator can be attached to a balcony or travel through a hole in the floor. This reduces the amount of installation work required, as well as the amount of time needed. This quicker installation process means there will be less inconvenience for you.
Pneumatic elevators are smaller than other elevator models. They measure as little as 30 inches in diameter, allowing them to fit even in small homes. Space is not a limitation with a vacuum elevator. A larger vacuum elevator can fit a wheelchair.
Unlike other elevators with a traditional box shape surrounded by walls, a pneumatic elevator is round and surrounded by clear panels. This provides passengers with a panoramic view of the interior of the home as they travel from floor to floor.
A vacuum elevator uses changes in air pressure to move the cab up and down. It uses less electricity than other models and does not require the use of hydraulic oil, making it more affordable and environmentally-friendly than other types of elevators.
Pneumatic elevators are lighter than other types of elevators and have smaller weight capacities. They can transport up to 525 pounds from one level to another in a home.
If you need to improve mobility in your home but have limited space, a pneumatic elevator could be the answer. It takes up less space than a traditional elevator and requires less installation work, which reduces the amount of time and inconvenience. Vacuum elevators also have lower operating costs than hydraulic or cable-driven elevators.
