How It Works

How Does a Pneumatic Elevator Work?

Pneumatic vacuum elevators have an airtight seal built into the top of the cab. The shaft of a pneumatic elevator features hidden turbines situated at the top of the hoistway, and the powerful turbines have the important job of removing air from the hoistway to move the cab upward. Removing the air creates a vacuum, which is strong enough to lift the cab up. When it’s time to move the cab back down again, special electronic valves slowly return air to the hoistway in a controlled process, allowing the cab to move downward. These valves have the precision necessary to stop the cab at the exact location desired.

The controls will allow the cab to stop at a middle landing or continue to the top. When the cab arrives at a landing, it travels a few inches above the landing and sets mechanical brakes. The cab then lowers onto the brakes. When the cab is stationary at a landing, it is mechanically set and not relying on air pressure.

While the pneumatic elevator cab is moving up or down, the occupant of the cab enjoys a full 360-degree view of the surroundings outside of the elevator.

How Much Does a Vacuum Pneumatic Elevator Cost?

Typically, your pneumatic vacuum elevator cost will be somewhere between $30,000 and $50,000; this cost can vary greatly based on both the specific model of lift you choose and the physical constraints of your space, which can have a significant impact on the cost of vacuum elevator installation. But when buying a pneumatic vacuum elevator, price shouldn’t dissuade you, as this can often be the most economical lift option.

Why Choose a Pneumatic Elevator?

Pneumatic elevators can be a functional and affordable accessibility solution for residences. Anyone with mobility issues that make climbing stairs difficult might consider installing an elevator, and while wheelchair lifts are one common solution, many people find that the best choice is one of our pneumatic elevators. But cost is only one of the reasons why people might decide to install a pneumatic vacuum elevator in their space.

If the idea of installing a large, bulky elevator in a home or office sounds like a bad plan, our pneumatic elevators might be the right choice for you. Pneumatic elevators provide state-of-the-art technology with a sleek design, enabling you to fit them into virtually any type of space. Imagine a pneumatic elevator made of glass that is small enough to fit anywhere. The smallest glass elevator has an interior cab diameter of about 20 inches. If your space allows, you can also get this elevator in sizes up to 43 inches in diameter. Larger elevators can accommodate two people or even a wheelchair.
