Vacuum Elevator - PVE 37"

The PVE 37′′ is the first of the Vacuum Elevator Models that was introduced to the elevator industry in 2002. The Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator, PVE 37, measures 37′′ in outside diameter making it a great value in utilizing a much smaller footprint than a traditional elevator requiring an elevator shaft.
