Tabletop cases may be minimal, but you can rest assured that your valuable artifacts are housed in the same secure and conservation safe environment as in all of our cases. It’s perfect for documents, jewelry or similar small objects.
Tabletop Case Options
All decks are fabricated from a variety of non off-gassing materials. Conservation materials such as aluminum plate, aluminum honeycomb, 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.
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.
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.
Glass vitrines offer an alternative to the more common acrylic vitrines. Acrylic is lighter that glass and easier to handle, but subject to micro scratching if improperly cleaned. Glass may be tempered or laminated. Low iron glass is optically clear without the green cast of standard glass.
