Museum display cabinets are the most important part of museum display. They can not only protect cultural relics, but also improve the display effect of cultural relics. Therefore, the design and production of museum display cabinets need to take into account many factors, including material selection, structural design, display effect, etc. DG will introduce the materials commonly used in museum display cabinet design and their characteristics.
1. Museum showcase design material - glass
Glass is a transparent material that provides good sight lines, allowing viewers to see the details of artifacts. At the same time, glass can also effectively protect cultural relics from damage or theft. In museum display cabinets, glass is generally used to make the panels and partitions of the display cabinet, as well as the background board behind some cultural relics that need to be displayed transparently.
2. Museum showcase design materials - metal
Metal is a strong, durable material that provides stable support and protection for display cabinets. Metal is generally used in the production of frames in museum display cabinets, as well as some display panels and shelves that need to be fixed on the wall or floor. Another advantage of metal is that it can be shaped into various shapes, thus providing more possibilities for the design of display cabinets.
3. Museum showcase design material – wood
Wood is a warm, natural material that can bring a welcoming atmosphere to museum display cases. In museum display cabinets, wood is generally used to make display cabinet panels, partitions and display boards, as well as some display facilities that require special emphasis to match the cultural relics. Another advantage of wood is that it can be carved into various shapes, thus providing more decorative features to the design of the showcase.
4. Museum showcase design material - acrylic
Acrylic is a clear plastic material that provides good visibility, allowing viewers to see the details of artifacts. At the same time, acrylic also has good toughness and impact resistance, and can effectively protect cultural relics. In museum display cabinets, acrylic is generally used to make the panels and partitions of the display cabinets, as well as the background boards behind some cultural relics that need to be displayed transparently. Compared with glass, acrylic has better processing performance and impact resistance, so it is more suitable for some exhibits that need to be moved or transported frequently.
In short, the commonly used materials in museum display cabinet design include glass, metal, wood, acrylic, etc. Each material has its own unique characteristics and scope of application. DG, as a leader in display case manufacturers, usually combines factors such as the characteristics of cultural relics, display effects and the environment used, emphasizing the advantages of the materials they use in the protection of cultural relics, display effects and environmental adaptability to meet the needs of museums and exhibition venues, and provide customers with the best display case solutions.
