System Q: a model to meet every need

System Q display cases are classified based on structural and functional characteristics. The first letter – Q for “quadrilateral” – is used for the entire system, and is followed by a second letter that has to do with the shape of the display case and the five product types.

  • QD display cases have a door that can be opened and represent the evolution of the standard glass cabinet (D for Door).
  • QB cases allow objects to be displayed in a mobile glass structure (B for Box).
  • QT cases are table models that extend horizontally and allow objects to be seen mainly from above.
  • QC models are display drawer cases, horizontal or vertical. 
  • Finally, QF models serve as “frame cases” for paintings (F for Frame).


Further, more detailed classification criteria depends on how the display case is placed in the museum (for example, as an island, wall or hanging unit); the opening mechanism (rotation, pull & slide or tilt & slide); the type of ceiling (in glass, in glass with metal frame or in metal) and any other potential special characteristics.

Display cases with door opening
QD Class

The QD class represents the latest technological evolution of display cases as “glass cabinets,” or in other words, cases that have one or more doors. They can be stand-alone island (QD-I) models, placed against a wall (QD-W) or hanging (QD-...

Glass-box display cases
QB Class

The QB class represents the evolution of the display case in that the exhibit-space enclosure has been transformed from a fixed unit with a door into a mobile unit hinged to its supporting frame. QB display cases can be island models (QB-I), wall units ...

Table display cases
QT Class

QT class models are table-shaped. As with the models of the QB class, these cases display objects in an all-glass box. QT display cases can be island models (QT-I), placed against a wall (QT-W) or wall-hung (QT-H). They have a lift opening or open vi...

Drawer units
QC Class

This class includes units that have horizontal drawers or vertically arrayed pull-out display enclosures. They are often used in open-storage configurations but can be used in more typical exhibit areas as well. Their casing is made of sheet steel, optiona...
