Air Powered Lift?
A solid construction of aluminium and polycarbonate panels, providing a strong and resilient enclosure for the cabin to safely travel within. Polycarbonate panels are slightly tinted to provide a subtle privacy without compromising the 360 degree panoramic view.

The cabin is a solid welded steel structure, providing a sure footed experience. Within the cabin you will find the simple lift controls, a telephone, lighting and ventilation.
Securely attached to the top of the cabin is the seal, this is where the magic happens. The motors create negative air pressure. Any failure of the system results in automatic locking of the lift in position, making uncontrolled descent impossible.
When you reach an upper level, the cabin is locked into place. This system is not susceptible to creep or floor levelling issues. No energy is used to hold the lift in place at an upper level.
How It Works
Simple… At the top of the cylinder there are a series of motors, as they “suck” the air out of the cylinder, the cabin is drawn up the shaft.
• Very few moving parts, so more reliable.
• Less resistance or mechanical inefficiencies, so very low energy consumption.
• Low maintenance, so low onward costs.
