Demountable Floor Case
Demountable Floor Case
Disassembling our demountable cases allows them to be moved and stored with ease. Each case consists of a base and top frame. Vertical corners are fixed with special aluminum channels that allow cases to be put together and taken down easily by one or two people with no special skills. The front panel may be easily removed for access without disassembling the entire case. As with all of our cases, our demountable cases are made with conservation grade materials. Each one is built to order so an almost unlimited range of sizes is available. An optional crate is available to store your case when not in use.
Demountable Floor Case Options
Ultraviolet (UV) Filtering
Ultraviolet light can be extremely detrimental to sensitive artifacts. Special ultraviolet filtering acrylic is available. Laminated glass, consisting of two sheets of glass bonded to a center clear plastic sheet, has the option of incorporating a UV filtering center layer.
A custom height pedestal base may be added to this case if desired.
All decks are fabricated from a variety of non off-gassing materials. Conservation materials such as aluminum plate, acrylic, Dibond aluminum/polyethylene composite and Ethafoam are options. Acrylics and aluminum can be painted using zero VOC water based paints, laminated, or wrapped with fabric. Ethafoam, which is a high-density foam, can be bonded to an aluminum plate or Dibond sheet and fabric wrapped to provide flexibility in mounting artifacts. A variety of deck options are available including flat, raised, and sloped.
Any of the panels may be replaced by opaque panels. We can add graphics to these panels if desired.
Risers give the curator or designer a way to highlight specific objects by elevating them above the deck. Risers may be constructed of a variety of archival materials to ensure they meet conservation requirements. They are available with a zero VOC paint finish or wrapped with museum grade linen fabric.
Adjustable shelves supported on a rod or cable system may be added in conjunction with a light attic or canopy.
A light attic may be added to the top of a case to provide housing for lighting, as a way to suspend an object or to anchor suspended shelves.
