In August, a Hitachi escalator with rise height of 28.5 meters was installed at Longgang Wanda Plaza in Shenzhen and will soon be put into use. This rise height of 28.5 meters sets a new record for the rise height of domestic, commercial escalators.
The escalator is Hitachi Elevator’s customized product for the Longgang Wanda Plaza Project. From the 1,500-square-meter atrium on the first floor to the sixth floor, transparent exterior panels are used on both sides of the escalator to create a giant science fiction scene. Besides, in combination with the mall’s 2,500-square-meter cyclorama and 77.77-meter-long indoor glass walkway, passengers can immerse themselves in the mall’s space decoration and science fiction atmosphere while riding the escalator.
