Wall-Mount Showcase Elgin Casefront

The Elgin Casefront can serve as a front to an aperture or as a completely sealed enclosure. Once the display area is secured, lighting, shelving, labelling or any of our other additional case options can be added.
Perfect for larger and custom detailed designs, the Elgin Casefront’s varied display alternatives let you push the limits of your exhibition. Each case can allow a glass top lighting header offering the flexibility of external lighting or the use of a detachable light-hood.
The elegant design maintains a single plane between the secure glass door and walls to bring your visitors closer to the heart of the display.
The Elgin Casefront can be constructed as a demountable showcase system and flat- packed for compact, cost-effective shipping to another location. It is ideal not only for use in temporary and touring exhibitions
but is also equally suitable as a permanent installation.
All key mechanical elements such as door frames, locks, hinges and seals are supplied as part of factory-built modules, which remain permanently assembled.

Type of exhibits
With a front viewing direction, the Elgin Casefront design range is very flexible and displays can be easily changed or reconfigured. Elgin cases have been used for a wide variety of small to medium size exhibit types including paintings, coins, tapestries, ceramics, silverware, medals, insects, stamps and documents.
Elgin Casefront cases are best lit internally from the top and a full range of lighting, soffit and diffuser options are available. Additionally, LED or fibre optic side lighting can be provided. Note that access must be provided in the wall or exhibition structure to service lighting.
Elgin Casefront cases are usually provided with side hinged doors that provide 100% full access to the case interior. They can also be provided with top hinged doors which are supported by gas springs or stays incorporated within their framework.
When supplied as a fully sealed enclosure, shelving can be provided using hanging rods from the top of the case or cantilever brackets mounted to the back.
