The unique design of the vacuum residential elevator is a perfect choice for any retro-fit or new construction project and will enhance the value of one’s home without the consuming footprint of a traditional home elevator.
How does it work?
Vacuum elevators are nice because these involve minimal installation and can easily fit into most homes. Vacuum Elevators utilize air pressure in order to move the elevator car up and down as opposed to the traditional cables and gear systems. The vacuum creates a low & high pressure environment inside of the tube. This is done with powerful pumps to reduce air pressure above the car, which in turn will increase the pressure below the car and ultimately push the car up. For movement of the elevator car back down, the air pressure below the car is simply reduced and then the car gently descends.
