They take me to the top of Shanghai
in the fastest elevator in the world!*
*As of Nov. 1, 2016, in an operating elevator; Mitsubishi Electric data
In business, every second counts. I’m always in a hurry, but when I take the world’s fastest elevator, in no time I’m at the observation deck of China’s tallest building with a few moments to spare. Looking down from here, the view is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Time seems to stand still… but business waits for no one. So I’m off to my next appointment.

Elevator and Escalator Technology
by Mitsubishi Electric
At 632 meters, the Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China.
Mitsubishi Electric’s ultra-high-speed elevators reach the observation deck 552 meters above ground in only about 53 seconds. Even at a top speed of 1,230 m/min, the elevators do not roll or sway, ensuring safety and comfort to all passengers.

Elevator performance is not only about speed, but indispensably about the comfort of the people riding it.
Active Roller Guide System for Ultra-High-Speed Use
The new Active Roller Guide System detects car vibration with sensors and significantly cancels sways with a total of four active roller guides on top and underneath the car, so passengers hardly feel any shaking of the elevator. The state-of-the-art elevator provides the world’s fastest speed and passenger comfort.
Reduction of Noise Around the Car
A streamlined aerodynamic car cover is employed for ultra-high-speed elevators, to dramatically minimize noise by controlling the flow of air in the shaft when the car travels at high speed.
