Vision 450

Vision 450 home elevator is a pneumatic lift operating with a vacuum concept.

Unlike most residential elevators, Vision 450 require no pit, machine room, or hoist way and has a cylindrical elevator cabs with panoramic visibility. Instead of a guide rail or cable, the elevator has a driving machine consisting of turbines that remove the air from the top of the car and, as a result, the car moves in an upward direction.

  • No excavation, no hoist way, no costly infrastructures.
  • Utilizes a pneumatic drive.
  • Contemporary design.


The Vision 450 is the most popular of the pneumatic elevators. The size is comfortable for a single person, yet 2 people can squeeze in together. This unit takes up a very small footprint while providing a sufficiently sized cab.

100% Pneumatic

No ropes, pulleys, chains, or counterweights are used, and a safety valve is located at the top of the car to act as a top switch so the cab knows where to stop on certain floors. Instead of using a pit, the elevator cab sits at floor level at the bottom and, for each floor stop above, is held in place by mechanical locks.
