The harmonious combination of preserving, protecting and presenting.

Tasks of display cases.

Museum display cases have many different tasks, which can be divided into three main topics:

Instruments for securing exhibits

against theft, vandalism and accidental force. The quality of the security is determined by the structural and material properties of the construction as well as the mechanical protection of the access area.

(Stability of the supporting structure, fixing of the structure to the building, material thicknesses and glass quality, accessibility to material joints, mechanical locking and security locking system, alarm protection, object tracking system)

Instruments for the preventive conservation of exhibits

slowing down the ageing process caused by physical agents of natural origin such as vibrations, earthquakes, climate, light and chemically induced reactions due to the composition of the air and biologically caused threads by pest infestation and humans.

(Providing suitable air quality and a suitable microclimate, securing all access points against pest infestation, operationally safe and optimised access for risk-free insertion/removal of objects, failsafe systems, vibration and earthquake mitigation systems, choice of conservation grade materials).

Instruments for the presentation and narration of exhibits,

which enable spatial organisation, create good visibility and legibility of the exhibits and are intended to promote interest in and concentration on the exhibits as well as to take on communicative tasks (Hierarchisation and positioning, proportioning in space, creating axial relationships between the structure and its surroundings, choosing the shape, designing joints, selecting materials and surface finishes, use of colour, atmosphere through lighting, use of media).
