CXD SHOWCASES

Since first offering conservation grade showcases in the UK and Irish markets in 1995 CXD have completed a large number of prestigious projects. True craftsmanship ensures that single showcases are given the same care and attention as large installations, which include National Museums Liverpool and Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery in Glasgow. Conservation By Design Limited ensure that from initial enquiry through to completion a project is delivered that meets or exceeds client expectations through understanding of conservation requirements and creative engineering.

CXD Museum Showcases are renowned worldwide for their elegance and durability. Showcases are typically supplied frameless so as not to distract from the objects on display.

To overcome the problems of restricted access given by pull and slide type showcases, doors are mounted on strong but discreet hinges providing 100% access to the showcase interior. The integral silicone gasket on the doors and desk tops provide a perfect seal which will not deteriorate like standard adhesive seals.

Glass joints are mitred for a stronger bond and better aesthetics. The mitred glass on table showcases and small glass hoods are bonded with an invisible UV cured adhesive and on larger showcases with a conservation grade silicone which is both durable and flexible.

Depending on the specification the cases are manufactured dust proof or vapour tight. Well-sealed cases allow a stable climate within the case to be controlled using Prosorb™ silica gel. Alternatively they can be supplied with a mechanical climate control system.

Conservation By Design have been at the forefront of supplying materials to protect against corrosive gasses which may come from the outer environment or from the objects within the showcase. Pollution scavengers such as Charcoal Cloth® and Corrosion Intercept® can be provided for the cases.
