The case system allows large exhibits to be featured without interruption along an entire gallery space. Case can be mounted against the wall or bolted to the floor to suit any gallery dimensions. Comes with options for easy access with a fully-automatic swing door, or an electronically-synchronized pull and slide door front. Front glass panels can be in one single piece or divided to multiple panels of two, three or more. A customized silicone inert seal between glass joints provides air-tightness within the display area. Different options for lighting is concealed within the separate light hood compartment above the showcase. Back dressing panels form the vertical areas for mounting small or larger exhibits with accessories for cantilevered shelving, suspended glass panels or graphic rails which can be added later.

Built-in display cases are engineered using an ultra-slim aluminium extrusion design profile with only a visible front glass panel. The case front can be fitted to any depth of a showcase carcass. This approach provides a high-security display area with 100% full opening access integrated with a concealed side hinge door. The back-wall is a solid backing panel that can come with optional fabric wrapping, folded steel in powder-coated finish or inlaid with vertically adjustable shelving systems for heavy exhibit displays. An optional artsorb compartment for silica gel media is concealed below the bottom dress panel.
For new Tianjin Museum, Relicase provided museum display cases for Exhibition of Selected Cultural Relics, Exhibition of Ancient Chinese Jades, Exhibition of Ming&Qing Dynasties’ Blue&White Porcelains from Museum’s Collection, Exhibition of Calligraphy Painting. Hereby we particularly present two 15m long documentstyle table cases to you.
The two exhibits, Birds’ View and Roll of Flowers on River, which could not be exhibited in the original museum due to the limitations of the exhibition facilities, were 17m and 13m long, respectively. The two table cases we designed allowed visitors to have a panoramic view of the two items in the Cultural Relics Display Hall of the new museum. The access opening of the case allows for the entire 15m long glass top to be lifted for the easy mounting or removing of the exhibit.
In addition, all the large wall display cases of the Tianjin Museum use the WHMI electronic opening system. The synchronization of the actuators and controls of the opening system was particularly critical. Any linear travel error exceeding 0.5mm in any of the lifting actuator devices would incur the risk of cracking. Our team used closed-loop detecting synchronous drive technology, which completely addressed this problem and ensured the safety of the cases.
