Museum display case with transparent wall fitted with opaque screen

The problem

A display case’s glass panes need to have mechanical parts attached that enable them to be opened or held in place. These are concealed by adding a strip of paint, but the paints used may introduce off-gassing issues, releasing substances into the case that may damage the objects it contains.

The standard solution

These areas are generally concealed by gluing metal strips, or strips of other material, on the outside of the panes.

Goppion’s innovation

Goppion has developed technology whereby the glass panes are painted before they are brought together, incorporating the paint within a layer of plastic. In this way the mechanical parts are completely hidden from view without needing to add paint inside the display space.
