Choosing a Base for Custom Sized Display Case

Do you need a base on your custom sized acrylic display case?

The first thing we need to know to give you a price on your display case is if you need a base, and if so which base you would like.
We basically have three styles of base, all of which are available in various colours, or we can supply a cover only, with no base.

Please select one from the options below.

No Base- Cover Only

Ideal if you have already got a base, or you just don't need a base, this will be the acrylic cover only, and can be made in 3mm or 5mm thick acrylic.

Traditional Wooden Base (15 Colour Combinations)

Display Case with a Wooden BasePlease note that the wood style changed from 2nd November 2018. 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 or blue. This gives a choice of fifteen different colour combinations, which should be enough to suit your displayed item and the room surroundings. These covers can be made in 3mm or 5mm thick acrylic, depending on the size of cover you are ordering.

Modern Acrylic Base (Available in Black, Clear or White)

Display Case with a Modern BaseThese 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 sizes 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, the external height will be nearer 230mm. This type of base is available in black, white or clear acrylic.

Flat Acrylic Base (Available in Black, Clear or White)

Display Case with a Flat BaseThis style has a simple flat base made from 5mm thick acrylic, which has a rebate machined all around, this provides 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.
