When imagining a home elevator, conventional elevators, cables, pistons, grease, maintenance, etc., typically come to mind. If safety is your top priority when installing home elevators, vacuum elevators are a fantastic option.

Since vacuum elevators don’t require electricity to descend, your elevator will safely land on any floor even if the power goes out. This is an advantage vacuum elevator have over other types of elevators, in which a power outage can result in significant problems.
Our air-driven residential elevators are equipped with mechanical safety brakes that are activated only in extreme circumstances, such as the detection of a vacuum leak over the top seal.
Our lifts are certified for CE for Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which is one of the strictest standards for assessing structural integrity and safety.
Safety Precautions in a Vacuum Home Elevator
The only elevator technology that won’t need a battery backup or emergency power supply in the case of a power outage is vacuum elevators. Vacuum elevators come equipped with every safety feature, including a telephone, light, fan, child switch, emergency descend, and alarm as a standard protocol. Due to the elevator’s Self-sustaining architecture and its metal shaft, it can be placed on an existing floor. Therefore, it does not involve tearing down existing structures or erecting RCC walls.
Vacuum elevators while climbing up, require only 240 KVA of power and when descending, the lifts rely on gravity, hence, no power is needed while the lift descends, ensuring that passengers land safely.
