PNEUMATIC VACUUM ELEVATOR
The Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator is an elevator designed for use by individuals who use wheelchairs and individuals with mobility or walking disabilities. The elevator consists of an external cylinder, an elevator car, and a suction assembly. The external cylinder is a clear, self-supporting tube with walls made of curved polycarbonate sheets supported by an aluminum structure. The doors are made of the same material; they are air tight and provided with elevator code-certified locks. The roof of the tube, made of steel, ensures air tight closures with suction valves and inlets. The elevator car that travels inside the tube is made of transparent polycarbonate and is mounted on a steel structure. The roof includes an air tight joint that ensures normal pressure and air conditions for the passenger. An anchoring system that activates on reaching the indicated floor provides precise stops and locks the car mechanically. The suction assembly can be built and placed either on the same tube that holds the car or separately (split) at distances of 10 to 20 feet from the lift. It holds up to 6 suction turbines that ensure a smooth ride.
