Glass & Case Design • Locks & Alarms • Earthquake Testing


glass museum case design


In order to protect the object inside the display case from theft, the case is designed to withstand external forced entry. Cases are built from structural aluminum, processed steel and laminated glass.

Laminated glass is made from float glass with security foils between them. The thickness of the glass depends on the case dimensions and the applicable building code or security regulations.

museum case locking system


The access to the case is differentiated in object area access, light attic access and climate control area access. The case doors are secured by mechanical- and security locks. The mechanical lock prevents the door to be physically opened while the security lock prevents the mechanical lock to be operated. The access to the light attic, the climate area or other technical hatches are protected by security locks.


On request, we can earthquake-proof your display case. In order to secure the object against an earthquake, the object is passively protected by specific mount making and a display case that will withstand the effect of an earthquake. When passive protection methods aren’t suitable, the plinth supporting the object or the entire case will receive active seismic isolators.
