Official and public tests were
performed in France, Belgium, England and the USA
During 1974, over 40,270 (1973 not included) International tests of the Evacuation
Verticale Zephinie (EVZ) were performed up to the 330 ft height of in an
International Press Relation demonstration on March 20th, 1974.
In the USA, the president of the Milliken Corporation personally tested the EVZ.
The French inventor, Gerard Zephinie opted to develop the engineering standards
of the new technology prior to export of the product.
As chief engineer of the project, he knew that the apparent simplicity could
possibly mislead the business oriented community in performing an unsafe
installation of the EVZ.
The EVZ company was acclaimed by millions, however the company has not
financial recourses to invest in the EVZ application engineering standards
Zephinie exchanged license right with an Engineering company in Barcelona, Spain
for the labor of 3,000 hours of engineers and metal shop.
Zephinie determined 11 installation type supports and the control procedure of
EVZ technology in nine months.
All applications were backed by mathematical calculus and tests were performed
by the Laboratorio de Elasticidad y Resistencia de Material, Escuela Tecnica de
Ingeneros de Barcelona, Spain.
Later, in 1977, Millikan, as other companies grew weary of the fight against the
New York City special interest group blockade and dropped out.
The Rhor Corporation asked for exclusive US rights to use the EVZ for the
Monorail train and tests were performed in Rhor facilities in San Diego,
The Six-flags Corporation also asked for exclusivity for the US amusement
Below is the archived document of the international test of the ZEC-EVZ
technology performed during the year 1974.
