Our R&D Department at its best!

A New Frameless Case Design

It is in May 2017, at the St.Louis, Missouri AAM annual conference that Zone Display Cases presented its new frameless display case for the first time.
This frameless design, long-awaited from designers and curators, is now available from Zone Display Cases. A unique concept with a completely hidden hinge that allows for a full size door access, but with no trop structure! These gorgeous and sleek all-glass units are available to order and have even already been sold to some prestigious institutions such as the Shindagha Museum in Dubai and the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington.


Intelligent Cases with Wireless Monitoring

As if a frameless design wasn’t enough, we’ve also launched our new Zi intelligence system for display cases that can transform any of our cases into an “intelligent” case. This complete system allows the user to monitor and even control some parameters such as humidity level, movement sensor’s sensibilty, controlling the lighting in the cases, alarms and locking mechanisms along with accesses recording and more. Welcome to 21rst century museum casework!

We are still working on the system at this very moment. The prototype shown during the AAM conference served to test the market and obtain feedbacks from museum institutions. We surveyed many directors, curators and designers to get an even better understanding of their needs and come up with the most adapted intelligence system for museum display cases. This system should become available to buyers over the coming year.

Getting close to the year's end, the entire team at Zone Display Cases is left with a sense of gratitude and appreciation for all of you out there that have reached out to us to collaborate in making 2017 a year full of wonderful projects and friendships.
May you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
