Your typical wall display showcase consists of a lower cabinet base, a top canopy, glass panels all around and a set of lockable sliding doors in the front. Schools, universities, museums and institutions in general have often other requirements when it comes to glass wall display cases. Since often a whole group is installed with each one placed side by side the glass cases will be manufactured with solid wood sides. The result is to give a more compact look to each wall showcase. The solid wood sides may be stained and finished identically on the outside and inside. Solid wood wall display showcases do require additional lighting to be installed in the top canopy since they do not benefit from the natural light coming through the sides. Solid wood sides will provide the added structural strength whenever one wants to recess their wall showcase into a wall. Here obviously the lateral visibility within the wall showcase is of no concern. Solid sides wall units also allow for an easy compartmentalization within the glass area. This is what many institutions are looking for when purchasing wall display showcases.
