Sports clubs, schools, universities, associations are constantly in need to display their existing and newer trophies and awards. They find that glass top pedestals are one of the better ways to show off these symbols of accomplishment. For one the trophy or award will be fully enclosed in a completely sealed glass top area. Most manufacturers can install some optional LED lighting inside to highlight the look of the trophy. This will work well with acrylic or leaded glass awards. Glass top trophy cases may be made with different base cabinet heights. This will differentiate any given trophy from the next one and bring it added value. The finish of the bottom cabinet may be laminated or solid wood veneer completed with a wide selection of stain finishes. Most glass top pedestals have a solid wood base but they are also available on wood tapered legs, elegantly formed metal legs or on Queen Ann wood legs. For security purposes the glass top areas of pedestals are either tempered or laminated glass, The glass area of any pedestal may be equipped with a hinged door, a slide out deck or simply lifted of the base cabinet. In all cases manufacturers are nowadays using state of the art locking mechanisms to prevent any occurrence of theft. Manufacturing quality is of the essence since all trophy glass pedestals are kept for many years.
