According to Hitachi representatives, they used the most modern elevator construction technology such as the active guide roller at 4 upper, lower, left and right positions of the elevator chamber. This equipment is intended to ensure customers move safely, reduce vibration and pressure when moving at high speeds from a low position to a high position of the building and vice versa.

Brake equipment of lift is made of heat-resistant material. In addition, the world's fastest elevator is also equipped with technology to regulate the ear pressure to limit tinnitus by reducing the change in air pressure inside the elevator chamber.

When in operation, this world's fastest elevator will only run at a permitted speed of 72km / h.


Hitachi introduced elevators above 1,200m / minute in 2015.
