Display Case Styles

Our Display Case Range

Overview of the different display case styles we make.

Traditional Display Case

Our display cases with a wooden base have a wooden trim around the outside of the base. This is available in a choice of three colours, Light Oak, Mahogany and Black Ash. This wooden trim provides a 5mm high lip around the outside which is what stops the display cover from being pushed, or sliding off. The flat display area is covered in a soft baize, which is supplied in either black, green, moss green, cream, blue or red. This gives a choice of eighteen different colour combinations, which should be enough to suit your displayed item and the room surroundings.
This style of base has the widest range of display case sizes when ordered as a custom size, and the widest choice of stock sizes. It is available with a 3mm thick acrylic cover or a 5mm thick acrylic cover, depending on the size of the display case. All of the stock size display cases in this style are available as a cover only, without a base.

Modern Display Case

This range of display cases is available with either black gloss acrylic bases which reflect the displayed item in them, or with clear bases, for a very minimalistic effect for your display.
The bases have two pieces of 5mm thick Perspex, held together by machined stainless steel posts. The lower base has plastic feet on the bottom to raise it slightly off your surface to prevent damage to your surface or the bottom of the display base. This is larger than the size of the display cover, so the cover will sit on top of this piece. The upper part of the base is slightly smaller, so it fit inside the display cover, thereby stopping the cover from sliding off the base. This makes the base about 20mm thick, but all size on this website allow for that, so if you order a display case 200mm high, you will receive a display case with a inside display height of 200mm.
As with all of our display cases, we have a wide range of standard sizes, as well as it being available made to order. Please nte that this style cannot be made as large as the traditional wooden base display cases above.

Acrylic Base Display Case

This style has a simple flat base made from 5mm thick acrylic. The stock sizes for this style are exactly the same as for the traditional wooden base style, with the exception that the height on these is 3mm shorter, this is because they use the same covers but the flat acrylic base has a rebate around the outside edge which is 2mm deep, this enables it to fit the cover and provide a lip to stop the cover from sliding off. These display boxes are less aesthetically pleasing than the wooden base or the modern design but can be used upside down with the base used as a lid. This is why the four rubber feet are supplied loose, so you can decide which way to use it, then put the feet on the bottom yourself. This style is also available made to any size, but please note that when you order one of these made to custom sizes that the interior height will be 2mm less, due to the design of the base.

Display Cover Only

We can also supply our display cases as a cover only, so you can fit them to your own base or use them without a display base/plinth. Display covers are available from stock sizes or as a custom size. To order a custom sized display cover just go to the custom display case section, or browse our display covers only section.

Wall Display Cases

We have four distinct styles of wall display cases, all fixed to the wall using our machined stainless steel pins, which are a two part wall fixing that leave no visible screw head once fitted.

  • The stock size wall display cases without shelves, these are for footballs, rugby balls, boxing gloves and the Olympic torches, all have a back panel that is fixed to the wall using our machined stainless steel fixings, these have the necessary stands/brackets to hold the displayed item fixed to them, as well as small slots down each side, which allows the front cover, which has small hooks down each side, to slot into it. This gives the complete protection to your display, but easy access if you need to get to it. To remove the cover you simply push the front cover up and then pull it away. This style is not available custom made, but if you have a product that needs a display case of this style just convince us there is enough demand and we will make one for you and only charge the eventual stock price of the display case.
  • We have a few stock sized wall display cases with shelves, these have the same back panel and front cover design as those above, but include a number of shelves fixed to the back panel as well. The front cover is easily removable for you to access your collection as and when you want. The current range includes display cabinets for 1:76 scale model buses, 1:43 scale model cars, 1:18 scale model cars, 1:50 scale model trucks also 1:12th scale model motorbikes, and also a generic one with a choice of different amounts of shelves. These can all be used for small collections of items such as Lilliput Lane, Cherished Teddies, Myth & Magic or similar collections.
  • The wall display box option is a 'wall fitting kit' which is fitted to any of our flat base display cases. You would order the flat base display box, and select the wall fitting kit option, which will mean we will supply with it the stainless steel wall fittings, and drill the holes in the back of the box to allow fitting. A point to note on using this option is you need to make sure the box is deep enough to allow you to get your hand in to tighten up the wall fittings.
    The display box is fitted with the open side facing up, then the lid is placed on top to make it dust-proof, we recommend ordering the clear lid option, to allow light to enter through the top as well as the sides and front.
  • The aluminium framed wall display case is ideal if you want a more secure option, this is supplied with a lockable door, which you can choose to have in either the front or any of the sides. The back panel and base are made of a opaque plastic which will be covered in a baize in the colour of your choice. It will be supplied with 2 keys and a wall fitting kit. These are only available in a custom made option.


Aluminium Framed Display Case

The aluminium framed display cases are made with a tough aluminium extruded frame which then has 4mm thick acrylic slotted into it. The lockable aluminium framed display cases are available with sliding lockable doors or hinged lockable doors. This is our strongest design and is recommended for commercial uses like exhibitions and shows, very large display cases, or display cases that need to be more secure. We also offer a cover style, which is a strong five sided cover with an open bottom, we can supply an insert of baize covered plastic to use inside if you wish.
