Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators

Through the application of fundamental physics and the utilization of attractive materials, PVE has virtually created a transportation vehicle within a bubble. Rather than using cables or pistons, PVE manufactures the only elevator that is powered by one of the most abundant resources in the world… AIR!

Due to its minimal footprint, rapid installation and a unique panoramic design, the vacuum elevator goes where other elevators simply cannot. Colorado Custom Elevator & Lift Inc is an authorized dealer of PVE Elevators.
