LG Electronics has broken new grounds with the successful deployment of its CordZero canister vacuum cleaners by professional rock climber Sierra Blair-Coyle to achieve the feat of successfully scaling the side of a 140-meter high-rise building. The electronic giant had earlier teamed up with Blair-Coyle to develop a unique climbing technology that guarantees powerful performance using suction pads and the lightweight and long-lasting lithium-ion battery-equipped appliance.
Lugging two canister vacuums up a 33-story office tower, the premium cordless vacuum cleaners created enough suction to support Blair-Coyle’s weight while she carefully climbed toward the roof. With Smart Inverter Motor and Advanced Battery Technology
Blair-Coyle completed the climb in less than 30 minutes, stopping only once for a fresh pair of vacuums, successfully pulling off the record breaking feat.
“We hoped to draw attention to the innovative technologies that power the appliances we so often take for granted and this project succeeded in doing just that,” said Simon Jeon, Senior Vice President of washing machine business unit at the LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We wanted to demonstrate that today’s vacuum cleaners include sophisticated technologies that can undertake extraordinary challenges and thanks to Sierra, I think the message came through loud and clear,” He added.
LG’s Smart Inverter Motor offers the most powerful performance in the cordless vacuum category, combining high efficiency with durability in a compact size. The Smart Inverter Motor is on average 28 per cent smaller, 24 per cent lighter and 13 per cent more efficient than conventional vacuum motors. Powering the motor is the highly efficient Power Pack 80V lithium-ion battery, which provides up to 40 minutes of power in regular mode after only a four-hour charge.
