With the growing awareness of environmental protection, the demand for various products and materials is getting higher and higher. The cultural heritage of museums and exhibits are particularly stringent for environmental protection due to their uniqueness and irreversibility.
The museum exhibitors also put forward new requirements, in addition to ensuring its basic anti-theft anti-explosion automatic opening and other intelligent human design, the material has no environmental pollution and new requirements, in order to be effective The durability of the exhibits is prevented.
Traditional museum display cases, in the process of replacement, are generally not easy to recycle and have been thrown away. This is a great waste of resources, so we need to do more at design time. Therefore, we need to consider more reusable aspects of the design, Therefore, we need to consider more reusable aspects of the design, reasonable consideration of the product structure and materials, even if the display cabinet product life is over, most of the components can still be recycled.
Based on this concept, We also integrates environmental protection and recyclability into the design process, uses more environmentally friendly materials, such as acid, in order to achieve zero in the exhibits. What we need to do is to put the appearance of the showcase on the premise of perfection, and focus on the invisible security and protection inside the showcase. This model has also been a concept. It will be a new trend in the development of showcases. All walks of life in the society are promoting environmental protection. We would like to be the most active part and contribute to the future development of the museum showcases.

Removable Glass Top Showcase Details
The removable glass top is a feature that allows different kinds of lighting solutions to be added on. Glass top can be changed to a diffuser glass that allows even distribution of light from an external light source. In addition, cases with this removable glass top can be fitted with a light hood that houses additional lighting elements such as LED, fluorescent, low-voltage halogen or even fibre optics lighting systems. Other task lighting can also be introduced at the sides or bottom of the case through this removable glass top.
For The Art of the Enlightenment exhibition, Relicase combined category, size and quantity of the museum display cases to the design, meanwhile illumination and material were selected according to traits of each exhibit. Our showcases reached requirement of the museum.

Relicase provided exhibition design services and museum display cases for the Ancient Costume Exhibition of the Museum of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. All-glass, frameless exhibit cases were used to meet the high standard of the displays for this exhibition. With detailed information graphics as well as fiber optic lighting at multiple angles, the desired visual effect of colour, light and shadow complementing one another was fully achieved.
In this costume exhibition, damages to the fabric exhibits were minimized through planar display. The targeted display cases were designed to ensure stunning display effects while protecting the items. Our showcases in this project reached unprecedented technical highpoint, strict humidity control, illumination for textiles that could completely unfold its aged heritage to visitors.
For highlighting the exhibition, showcases were supposed to be produced invisibly, leading more visitors' attention to exhibit.
The museum display cases need to meet the production process requirements of four items: protection of cultural relics technical requirements, safety and technical requirements of cultural relics, aesthetic visual requirements, the actual operation of the use of technical requirements.
Museum display cases are the space facilities in which museums display cultural artifacts with the most realistic attitude and artistic appeal. The museum is a place for arts and cultural activities that integrate advanced technology and dense information. The art collection of cultural relics is a representative of the museum. With the rapid development of science and technology in modern society, the requirements for the production of the museum showcases are getting higher and higher. Showcases in today's museums are also highly valued artworks. It is also the last line of defense for the protection of cultural relics collections.
The types of showcases used in the display and storage of different cultural relics are also very different. At the same time, we also need to comprehensively consider the requirements of display design, the type of cultural relics, the characteristics of the architectural structure, the location of the relics, the long-term planning of the exhibition hall, and many other factors. Heritage showcase type. This is the basis of our initial work.
Showcases are the guardians of cultural relics in the museum and bridges between the cultural relics and the audience. It is a vital link in the museum's display of artistic appeal and personality. Therefore, there are several aspects that should be dealt with in the design of a showcase: the relationship between humans and cultural relics, the relationship between showcases and the environment, and the relationship between cultural relics and the environment.
We know that museum showcases are used in places where it is necessary to showcase treasures. It is very important to us. Museum showcase are an indispensable part of the museum. Its design should be combined with the museum’s experience and design.
Museum display cases include main structure materials. According to the characteristics of dimensions, formulate a design scheme that meets the user experience, so that more humanized museum showcase products can be produced.
Museum showcase design not only needs to protect the cultural relics, also incorporates the characteristics of the museum and integrates into the main body of the museum showcase. Museum showcases play an important role. We are guardians of cultural relics and creators of museums.
Two paintings of the court dresses of Kangxi Emperor and Qianlong Emperor were painted by Giuseppe Castiglione (1688—1766) and were exhibited for the first time relying on two very special museum display cases provided by us. Both were exhibited in the exhibition hall of Ancient China in two showcases with an overall dimension of 3m (Length) X 5m (Height) X 0.7 (Thickness) for a period of three months. In order to exhibit the paintings that will allow viewers to examine these paintings in the closest proximity, we used a single piece of glass weighing a very heavy 612.7 kilogrammes, thus setting a great challenge for the design and opening access mechanism of the showcases.
The main showcase framework was produced with 27mm thick steel plates to accommodate the weight load of 612.7kg. This ensures that the case opening is distortion-free even after a very long period of usage. The TCFA electronic opening device ensures safety in opening the showcase; the electric lifting system for hanging picture makes it convenient and easy to re-position the painting from the ground level; adjustments of the painting positions can be manipulated in four different directions. The magnetic display system of the rear dress panel within the showcase allows for the convenient display of exhibits. This system reduces possible strain and damage caused by gravity
to fibrous materials hung and displayed vertically.
In respect of lighting design, the lighting approach utilizing dual rows of LED spotlights on the top was finally approved after over twenty lighting test rigs. The lighting solution uses a combination of four different lighting angles which had to specifically provide due consideration to the uniform illumination of the upper, middle and lower parts of the large-scale painting and incorporate the requirement for background light and accent lighting. There is also a set of concealed LED auxiliary light sources at the bottom of showcase for special circumstances. This set of lighting is controlled by a remotely wireless control system.
