China is set to install world’s fastest elevator which will operate at a record-breaking speed of 1,260 metres per minute. The elevator will be installed in a skyscraper complex building in China. The speed was recorded during a test of the elevator in Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre in China. The elevator which is in the final adjustment phase right now clocked a speed of 1,200 metres per minute last year in May, as per a PTI report.

The achievement was recorded by China’s National Elevator Quality Supervision and Inspection Centre, a public accreditation body of elevators. The elevator was developed by Japanese company Hitachi which plans to use their elevator technology’s new achievement for future product development for elevators with higher running quality, according to a report by Daily Mail.The elevator has various safety features including brake equipment using materials with outstanding heat resistance. Apart from this, an air pressure adjustment technology has been installed which eases ear blockage by reducing the changes in air pressure inside elevator car. Active guide rollers installed in the elevator absorbs vibration during high-speed operation, making the ride comfortable.
