Adhesives in elevators on the way up
Climbing out onto the viewing platform of London’s new “secret” landmark, the Shard, yields an unforgettable panorama. In fact, the trip to the 244 meter high 68th storey of the skyscraper is an experience in itself. The elevator zips skyward at a dizzy six meters per second. Meanwhile, the London Symphony Orchestra plays sounds specifically composed to soothe the car occupants from the off. For tourists from around the world, this has become an engrossing experience, the full enjoyment of which owes not a little to modern adhesives, sealants and surface treatment technologies supplied by the world market leader in the adhesives field: Henkel.
