Revolving Restaurants > Introduction

 

A revolving restaurant is a usually tower restaurant eating space designed to rest atop a broad circular revolving platform that operates as a large turntable. The building remains stationary and the diners are carried on the revolving floor. The revolving rate varies between one and three times per hour and enables patrons to enjoy a panoramic view without leaving their seats. Such restaurants are often located on upper stories of hotels, television towers, and skyscrapers.

Weizhong specializes in designing, manufacturing and installing revolving restaurants more than 25 years. We apply our own Pin-Gear drive system for revolving restaurants, which is an innovation comparing to the friction drive system.

The pin-gear drive mechanism revolving restaurants have smooth turning, reliable operation, long life and minimal wear and tear. They easily fit in construction structure. They are cost saving and space saving.

Weizhong has provided almost 200 hundreds revolving restaurants for TV towers and high-rise buildings up until 2016. Weizhong's most notable installation was in what is probably the best known revolving restaurant in Asia, the one atop the Shanghai Oriental Pearl TV Tower.

 


Revolving Restaurant of Oriental Pearl Tower


Shanghai Oriental Pearl Tower



Completed in 1994, the Oriental Pearl Towers stands over 1,500 feet tall. It is the largest tower in Asia and the third tallest tower in the world. Three cylindrical shafts form a central column that stretches between large lower and upper spheres, and the column is supported by three legs that spread outward from the lower sphere to the ground. The legs sweeping upward, combined with the graduated nature of the construction, narrowing from bottom to peak, suggest and over-inflated Eiffel Tower in rounded concrete, while the spheres seem to reference Berlin's Fernsehturm.
