This technology allows using two high-speed elevator cars in one shaft, which 1,7 times increases the total traffic. The cars move independently of each other and have different speeds: the bottom – 4 m/s, the upper – 6 m/s. The permissible approach distance between the cars is 1 floor.
The elevators installed in the podium of the Federation Tower are among the most unusual in the world. These unique glass elevators move at an angle of 10 degrees. Indoor inclined elevators are rare. In Europe, they are generally used as an alternative to high mountain stairs.

There are 16 elevators in the shopping arcade located on floors -1th to -4th of the Federation Tower has.
