Another lift that cannot be left off of our list is, in fact, the fastest lift in the world. It is located in the Burj Khalifa Tower, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This building, inaugurated in 2010, is the tallest building in the world. It consists of 160 floors and reaches a dizzying height of 828 meters.
The building has 57 lifts, and the fastest one travels at a speed of 18 meters per second. Without a doubt, travelling up to the 160th floor in this lift can be quite an experience.
And from the fastest lift in the world, let’s move on to the largest exterior lift on the planet. It is located in Hunan province, in China. This is the Bailong lift, also known as Hundred Dragons Elevator.
The Bailong lift, with a capacity of 50 persons, takes visitors up to a height of 330 meters. Along the way, we can admire the stunning views of the mountainous area of Wullingyuan.
So, as you can see, the lift has evolved a lot throughout history. Without a doubt, this device has become such an important part of our daily lives, even inside our homes.
If you are considering installing one in your house or community of neighbours, we at Vilber are prepared and ready to install lifts in Madrid and Granada. We also install lifts in Malaga and in Seville.
