Shanghai Tower, the tallest building in China
On 30 November, our AEDs successfully “went live” in the Shanghai Tower, to provide life safety emergency support.
The Shanghai Tower is 632m (2,073ft) high building, which is the tallest building in China and the second tallest in the world with 121 floors above ground level. Located at the core area of Lujiazui Finance and Trade Centre in Pudong, it is a vertical city and a mixed-use structure, with office spaces, a hotel, exhibition halls and both business and tourism functionalities. The Shanghai Tower has a unique structure that spirals up with a 120-degree inclination, with a curved façade and spiraling form symbolizing modern China.
The AED deployment at the Shanghai Tower has boosted confidence of many of our distribution partners in China; many now see a broader market prospect for our Primedic AEDs!
