Custom Display Cases

Oxford University


If you are looking for custom display cases, manufactured with care and precision for your event then we can cater for your needs.

Display cases can be small ones like the one in the image (right) which was 30cm x 30cm x 10cm high, just large enough to fit the product in. We also manufacture large display cases of all different shapes for a variety of purposes including permanent sculpture display.

What Materials Can I Have?

Display Cases are made from either glass or acrylic (perspex). Depending on the contents that will be inside the display case, depends really on your material of choice.

Are There Size Limitations?

To ensure that you have the display cases functioning at an optimal level, (i.e. staying together and not breaking in time) then we advise that all dimensions are under 1100mm for plinths and acrylic cases. For glass we do not manufacture anything over 600mm in one dimension for a 6 sided cabinet, or up to 1200mm for a five sided cabinet.

If you want something bigger than 1100mm then please do not write off the concept of having a display case made, we may just have to provide it in 2 parts.

The bespoke team are well equipped to deal with such requests and we are more than happy to discuss this with you over the telephone or email.

Are There Weight Limitations?

If you know the weight of the product you intend to display in a custom display case, then it is very helpful if we know this. If we are making the plinth to go beneath the case, it is helpful to know what reinforcement the case may need.

How Long Does It Take? 

Museum Display CaseCustom display cases made from glass have a minimum lead time of 3 weeks. This is due to the time it takes to get the bespoke glass from the manufacturer to ourselves and then make the case. With glass being glass, this factors in the time for if a piece breaks or is faulty (scratched) when it arrives from the manufacturer we can correct it in the time given. Often we can deliver within 2 weeks but we do not promise this service in case of breakages which with glass can be easily done!
Acrylic display cases can be made within 7 working days. As these are made in house, we can turn them around a lot quicker than the glass can be processed by our suppliers.

To the left here is an image of a custom display case made for Nantwich Museum to protect artefacts they displayed for an event for children.
