In Japan, Toshiba Elevator and Building Systems Corporation (TELC) installed 43 units of elevators in October 2016 at the Sumitomo Fudosan Roppongi Grand Tower, a new 45-storey landmark residential and commercial complex. The installation included four units of Japan's largest capacity passenger elevators which can each accommodate 90 people. The elevators, which stop at the first, fourth and 29th floor, travel at 5m/s and can carry up to 1,000 passengers in ten minutes. As part of business continuity, eight elevators also boast an automatic recovery function in the event of earthquakes.
With the rise of skyscrapers in recent years, the need for more high-speed, high-capacity elevators has become increasingly important to enable users to move more efficiently within a building. Leveraging its experience in elevator solutions, Toshiba will continue to develop new technologies to address this need.
