How It Works

Home Elevators

Vacuum Elevator Cylinder, Car, Control Unit

Elevator Cylinder: This “tube” has sections, customized for your floor heights. Walls are aluminum columns with curved polycarbonate panels, stronger than steel. The assembled elevator cylinder is self-supporting, and stands on the ground floor. Architectural design is at home in every decor.

Elevator Car: The elevator car goes up and down on 4 column rails. The car has an anchoring system for each floor. This provides precise but smooth stops, and locks the car at each floor.

Control Unit: 11″ high section on top of the cylinder houses 5 turbine fans, electronics, and computer. The section can be extended into the attic, or be up to 30 feet from the cylinder.

The control unit creates a vacuum above the car – this lifts the car up. Going down, slow release of the vacuum lowers the car to a smooth stop. Absolute safety.
