Showcase glass selection revealed: Choose the right glass type for your showcase


As experts in showcase making, we know that choosing the right type of glass is crucial when designing and manufacturing showcases. Glass not only protects exhibits, but also directly affects the appearance and performance of showcases. In this article, we will explain how to choose the right type of glass for your showcase to ensure the best display of your precious exhibits.


1. Safety and durability. First of all, the glass of the showcase must have sufficient safety and durability to protect the exhibits from damage and theft. In this regard, tempered glass and laminated glass are preferred. Tempered glass breaks into small pieces when impacted, rather than into sharp shards, reducing the risk of injury. Laminated glass is made of PVB film bonded between two layers of glass, which not only has excellent impact resistance, but also prevents theft.


2. UV protection. Ultraviolet (UV) rays are the natural enemy of exhibits and can cause color fading and material degradation. Therefore, it is important to choose glass with UV filtering capabilities. Low-reflective glass and UV filter glass can effectively reduce the transmission of UV rays, protect your exhibits from UV damage, while reducing reflections and improving the viewing experience.


3. Anti-reflective properties. Reflection is a common problem in showcases, which affects the audience's experience of appreciating the exhibits. To solve this problem, choose glass with an anti-reflective coating. This coating reduces reflections, allowing visitors to see exhibits more clearly without interference from reflections from the glass surface.


4. Clarity and transparency. The clarity and transparency of glass are crucial to displaying precious exhibits. Low-iron glass is preferred because it has higher transparency and does not distort color. Also, make sure the glass surface is kept clean to ensure viewers can fully appreciate the details of the exhibit.


5. Anti-reflective treatment. Anti-reflective treatment is to reduce the reflection on the glass surface and make the exhibits in the showcase easier for the audience to view. This treatment can be achieved through special coating or spraying methods to effectively improve the display effect.


6. Obscuration. If you want to control the light inside your showcase to avoid the effects of direct sunlight or strong lighting, you can choose glass with a degree of shading. This kind of glass can effectively reduce the penetration of light, ensuring that exhibits are properly illuminated.


When choosing a glass type, be sure to carefully weigh the above factors against your exhibit's characteristics and display needs. The final choice will directly affect the quality of your showcase and your audience’s experience. If you need more advice on glass types, our professional team are here to help.
