Buying Only a Display Case Top Section

The top glass display area of jewelry showcases and pedestals may be
manufactured separately from their solid base.Keeping a small two
inches high plate to hold the glass panels firm is sufficient. Trade
show exhibitors will find that ordering only the display case top
section has a few advantages. The display is easier to carry and to
set up during the exhibit and it is less expensive to ship from one
trade show to the next one.Some conventional customers will choose to
have their jewelry showcase base cabinet built locally.Retailers may
also choose to set up their new glass display top section on an
existing base cabinet. The challenge is for the two components to fit
well together. When ordering the top glass area dimensions accuracy is
essential. As with a complete glass showcase the glass display area
area may be manufactured in different heights, depths and widths. They
can be made with a glass to glass construction or with metal framing
joining the glass panels. Lighting such as LED or halogen can be added
to the display case top section as an option. All the electrical
components and wiring are directly accessible from under the base
plate. Once the display case top section has been received the
consumer will be free to connect the electrical through the base
cabinet for their own purpose. Getting everything to fit and work well
is challenging. Two different parties are working independently on the
two main components of the showcase. Recently we are seeing more
buyers choosing to purchase jewelry showcase and pedestal top sections

brand new glass trophy showcase. Manufacturers build custom made,
tempered glass cases for large and heavy trophies. They use much

Wall Showcases for a Narrow Space

The amount and configuration of the space available to install your
wall showcase can vary a lot. In some instances you have to work with
a corridor, hallway or a deep and narrow environment. It is no easy
task to figure out how to take full advantage of what you have
available. There are two ways to go about it. You can select a floor
wall showcase which does not exceed ten inches in depth or you can opt
for a wall mounted shadow box. A slim pre assembled wall showcase is
an attractive option. With a tall cabinet at the bottom and a glass
area on top the wall showcase combines storage space and highly
visible displaying. For stability any narrow wall showcase needs to be
attached to the wall behind. This is done by drilling holes through
the back of the top and bottom cabinets and fitting some screws into
the wall. Multiple glass shelves placed at eye level will make for a
good linear display. The bottom cabinet of a narrow wall showcase
should be at least thirty inches tall while the glass area ought to be
all at eye level. The second choice is more flexible and economical. A
custom wall shadow box usually does not exceed six to nine inches.

wide with one or two shelves. A wall showcase such as a shadow box can
be made to fit exactly in that narrow space. You can use it singly or
a few together. To be visually effective the wall showcase should be
also set up at eye level. Always remember that in a narrow space there
is no room to bend down and look at merchandise! Designers will
compensate for the lack of depth by making these wall showcases taller
than a conventional wall unit. Since all are attached to the walls
behind there is way more flexibility in the sizing of wall showcases
for a narrow space.

The typical choices are anodized gold, black and silver finishes. The finish of the extrusion should match the color of the cabinetry to make for an attractive glass showcase.

Home owners and art galleries look for pedestals to highlight the
artwork they want to show best. The pedestals are manufactured in
square, rectangular, even triangular shapes. They may be made in
different widths, heights, depths to accommodate each customer's
needs. The base materials to produce the pedestals may be a standard
laminate or solid wood veneer with a wide choice of stains. Your

tempered glass wall display showcases singly or a few units tightly
next to each other. Since department stores have high ceilings there
is ample space left to accommodate some additional top storage.There
are two options to do it: the upper storage may be incorporated in the
glass display showcase. A wall display showcase with wood sides makes
it easy to have the whole unit built in one piece. For handling and
transportation reasons manufacturers may choose to build the upper
storage cabinet separately, This is particularly appropriate when the
whole glass display exceeds eighty inches in height.During the final
installation the upper storage cabinet will be bolted to the wall
right on top of the showcase canopy.Department stores carry a large
inventory of products and do have to maximize the use of all their
space. Large wall glass display cases with double storage is the
