Before contacting DG display showcase, the National Museum of Oman searched and collected a lot of information on the internet about museum exhibit suppliers and finally chose to cooperate with us among dozens of suppliers. The National Museum of Oman has 14 permanent exhibition halls, and DG display showcase is mainly responsible for the exhibition halls that are display ceramics, metals, textiles and other artifacts. Because cultural relics are objects left over from years of history and have a certain value in the history of cultural development, scarcity and preciousness are the general characteristics of cultural relics. Therefore, our ability to provide an excellent storage environment for the collection was the most important point of concern for the National Museum of Oman and DG display showcase throughout the cooperation process.
DG display showcase's design team and R&D team designed and built various types of display cases for the National Museum of Oman through in-depth communication with its director and designers, including built-in museum display cases, museum stand cases, museum countertop cases, and we also produced large low-reflective glass enclosures for displaying exquisite porcelain, as well as innovative hanging display cases with a retractable sliding opening system.
As we all know, the humidity and temperature of the storage environment of cultural relics can produce irreversible damage to the relics if the fluctuation amplitude is drastic. Therefore, whether it is the state-owned nature of the museum, exhibition hall, or personal art hobby collection, family inheritance of art collection, all have strict requirements for the storage environment of the collection. Therefore, we also give each display cabinet are installed constant temperature and humidity system, to ensure that the temperature and humidity in the display cabinet can be controlled within a reasonable range, to reduce unnecessary damage to the exhibits. Different materials of cultural relics whose storage environment temperature and humidity requirements are also different, the following to give you a number of cultural relics of the temperature and humidity standards for your reference:.
