PVE 52″ white pneumatic vacuum elevator installed in a living area.

Signature Elevators & Accessible Design installed its first pneumatic vacuum home elevator in 2008 for a retired couple relocating from New York, NY, to Annapolis, MD. That home elevator has had three service calls in 12 years!

Signature Elevators has installed more pneumatic vacuum elevators in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia than any other elevator company. This home elevator is very popular with homeowners in the DMV area due to its dependability.

If home elevator design and installation sounds like the right decision for your family, call 301-251-1658 to schedule a residential elevator consultation today.

Find an Elevator Size That’s Right for Your Home

There are three sizes to choose from, named for their outside diameter: 52″, 37″, and 30″. Each of these can serve two, three, four, and five floors (stops), with a 50-foot maximum rise.

There are six possible colors: standard dark gray, light gray, white, black, taupe, and anodized silver. All come with an interior telephone and can be supplied with a key lock so children do not play on the elevator.

Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators Are a Great, Low-Maintenance Option

The only scheduled maintenance under the ASME A17.7 certification standard is that every five years or approximately 15,000 lifts, the main seal needs to be replaced. However, it’s rare that we need to replace the main seal for any of our customers due to the quality and durability of this type of elevator.

That’s a significant cost savings versus a standard elevator, where you must have regular maintenance.

Let us craft the home elevator solution that’s right for you. Call 301-251-1658 to schedule home elevator design and installation today.
