Residential elevators are gaining popularity, and pneumatic elevators are the next evolution in home accessibility. Read on for a preview of the latest in residential elevator technology from All-Ways Accessible:
- Basic Design
Unlike regular home elevators, pneumatic elevators have a unique design. Rather than a square elevator, the pneumatic elevator is built in the shape of a clear, glass tube. The futuristic design of the pneumatic elevator allows it to transport you and your loved ones to different areas of your home without cables or pulleys. The basic structure is built with aluminum and polycarbonate materials that create a light, stylish structure for your home.
Despite its one-of-a-kind design, a pneumatic elevator offers the same benefits of a regular residential elevator. The disabled members of your family can easily and safely enter the upstairs area of your home without the inconvenience of stairs. Since the pneumatic elevator uses only vacuum pumps and turbines, you don’t have to worry about calling a maintenance company to look at cables, pistons, or other pieces of elevator equipment. The lack of hydraulic machinery also means quicker installation and fewer expenses for your home’s new addition.
Pneumatic elevators provide a level of safety and comfort that is essential when housing handicapped members of your family. If you are unable to be home with your spouse or guest, residential pneumatic elevators provide your loved one with a safe, easy way to access the various levels of your home. While it may not be an immediate concern for you now, a home elevator may be your only means of residential mobility in a few decades. Installing a pneumatic elevator ensures your future accessibility and allows you to become familiar with this cutting-edge technology now.
