Inside back panels are removable to allow access for case installation, silica gel tiles, and the installation of artifact mounts. All wall cases are provided with custom wall cleat frames for gallery installation.
Five Sided Wall Case Options
Ultraviolet (UV) Filtering
Ultraviolet light can be extremely detrimental to sensitive artifacts. Special ultraviolet filtering acrylic is available.
Hinged opening allows for easy access to add or change objects in the case. It also provides access to desiccant material if the case has humidity control.
Back panels 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.
Shelves, in a variety of materials, may be fixed or adjustable, depending on the type of case and your needs. Adjustable shelves may me supported by shelf brackets where the shelf standards are hidden in the back panel of the case providing a clean look. Floating (fixed) shelves are also available.
In situations requiring a stable internal environment to preserve sensitive items such as paper, cloth and many other materials accommodations may be made for a passive system using desiccant material. Our cases are tightly sealed with silicone gaskets to minimize air exchange with the external environment.
We use LED lighting that is dimmable, emits no UV rays, generates minimal heat, is energy efficient and long lasting. Light tubes are typical, but we can also provide other light sources suited to your needs. All of our lighting comes with dimmers that allow for precise control. Timers, proximity sensors and power cutoffs are also available.
Depending on the style of case and your requirements we offer a range of security systems from simple screws requiring a special driver to high security key locks or other types of systems. Sensors and alarms may be added to cases and can interface with building security systems.
A wide variety of finishes may be applied to cases including paint, laminates or fine wood veneers. All of our paints are zero or low VOC and mixed to any custom color desired. High-pressure laminates are available from a number of different manufacturers. Cherry, oak, maple or other wood veneers add an elegant touch to a case.
