Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators

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