Installed fastest large-capacity elevators in Japan
We have installed four high-speed, large capacity elevators in TOKYO SKYTREE® (operated by TOBU TOWER SKYTREE Co., Ltd. Sumida, Tokyo) which opened on May 22nd 2012.
Four shuttle elevators for TEMBO DECK (350m in height) has capacity of 40 persons with maximum speed of 600m per minute, the fastest large capacity elevators in Japan.
Also two service elevators have the longest travel distance in Japan (464.4m). These shuttle elevators are able to carry passengers up to TEMBO DECK (350m) in approximately 50 seconds.
The tallest free-standing broadcasting tower in the world
The height of the TOKYO SKYTREE was originally specified at approximately 610m in the original project. However, it was planned from the beginning to be the world’s tallest free-standing broadcasting tower. After careful discussion and research on high-rise buildings that are being built around the world, it was finally decided on 634m, to become the tallest free-standing broadcasting tower in the world.
Thus, the 634m-high TOKYO SKYTREE was recognized by the Guinness World Records Company on November 17, 2011 as the tallest tower in the world.
