A lift with a view and a half – Lift Companies


Published on: 21-07-2015

If you’re going to hold the record for being the world’s tallest outdoor lift then you really should have the word “long” in your name, just like the amazing Bailong Elevator in Hunan, China. The Guinness World Record holding lift stands at 326m and is in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.

Over half of the lift (171.4m) is above ground and is built onto the side of a quartzite cliff. Passengers who dare to ride the spine tingling lift are treated to breath-taking views of the area and its huge karst monolith formations. The lift has been open since 2002 and the lift journey takes just 1 minute and 32 seconds in a double deck carriage.

Bespoke Lifts



As a lift company that deals with bespoke lifts, we’ve never seen anything like this before! It’s a very impressive feat of engineering and we wouldn’t mind going for a ride on the lift ourselves! As a lift company we’re used to installing bespoke lifts that are a little more modest than the Bailong Elevator – but they’re still impressive in their own right!

We can install bespoke lifts for both domestic and commercial buildings, all the while working with your own design team to ensure every aspect of the project is completed as smoothly and effectively as possible.

Now, we may not be able to provide you with the world’s tallest outdoor lift as that title has been taken, but what we can do is provide you with a completely bespoke lift that meets your individual requirements. Contact us for more information on our bespoke lifts.
