Fastest Elevatorsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread
Does anyone know of elevators with a speed faster than 7.6 metres per second ascent? These double-deck elevators are in the AMP Tower in Sydney and get to the 96th floor from the 4th floor (lobby) in about 40 seconds.
The only ones faster I've been able to find are in the Sears-Roebuck Tower in Chicago which travel at 8.1 metres per second.
