Hyundai Elevators Develops Double-Decker Elevators.

India, May 17 -- Keeping the fast growing infrastructure industry in mind Hyundai Elevators and Movement Technologies have developed a double deck elevator capable of reaching speed of 600 meters per minute, and plan to complete developing an operating system capable of managing eight double deck elevators by September this year.

In India Hyundai Elevators (HELCO) is represented by a JV company Kinetic Hyundai Elevators and Movement Technologies.

Double-decker elevators are generally used in tall towers to improve efficiency and bring down energy consumption. Double-decker elevators are typically used for buildings with 40 stories or more. Maximum speed of it is up to move 600 meters (1,968.5 feet) per minute - is relatively faster compared to ordinary elevators in high-rise apartments, which travel 90 to 120 meters per minute and are expected to be twice as efficient from the ordinary ones. To increase efficiency further, often double-decker elevators are programmed to stop at only even- or odd-numbered floors.

Speaking on the occasion, Managing Director, Manish Motwani said "With a vision of developing best and safest people flow experience our JV Partner Hyundai Elevator, Korea's biggest elevator maker in terms of sales, has finished the development of its own technology and one of the fastest and safest elevator of its kind. A double-decker elevator appears like two elevator cars attached to each other. As a result, the elevator visits two floors at the same time, raising the passenger capacity of the shaft."
