Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

 

We've compiled answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. Maybe you'll find what you need right here. If not, please feel free to contact us.

 

Display Case Sizes, Construction and Features:

 

What is the display case made of?

The Showcase Display System is constructed of custom 4 foot extruded and anodized aluminum.
 
How our pricing packages works:  Depending on the Scale, we offer 1 shelf rail for sale.  However we have found that most collectors desire more shelves to hold their collections.  Therefore we have adopted the term "pricing package". This is to make the cost of our display cases more affordable to you, the collector. When you purchase a set of 2 or a set of 4, or in the case of the N scale displays, a  set of 5 or 10, what you are actually receiving is, that number of individual shelves!
 
Each shelf interlocks together as the picture above shows or can be connected end to end for a display wider than 4 feet.
 
For example: N Scale; 1 shelf sells for $35. If you wanted 5 shelves, instead of paying $175 for 5 indivdual shelfs, we offer a "set of 5" which sells for $115, saving you $60! 
The same with the set of ten, if purchased individually you could pay as much as $350, however we offer the "Set of 10" for only $215, saving you $135!

 

What if I want my case shorter or longer than 4 feet?

Sections can be custom cut to your desired length and cuts are most commonly used when working with smaller spaces or for longer than 4 foot shelves are desired.

 

Additional friction fit end caps are sold at a nominal charge and are usually needed when there are custom cuts.

 

If connecting units by end to end, don’t forget to order the optional connectors.  More information can be found at: http://www.showcase-express.com/features.aspx

What are the windows made of?

Our super clear PETG windows are provided as a part of the system. They easily slip from the side for maximum dust protection. The windows are very flexible and are more scratch resistant than Plexiglas or other Lucite materials.

 

When mounting a full wall display you will only need a 5” clearance for the windows to slide in and out from the sides. Additionally, they are flexible enough to set in one of the front grooves and ‘popped’ into the other.

 

What are the dimensions of each case?

            A complete guide can be found here:

 http://www.showcase-express.com/dimensions.aspx

What comes with a standard display case purchase?

Individual anodized aluminum shelves with dust proof window and end caps are included with each display case order.

 
Each Shelf can be joined Top to Bottom or end to end to.
Connectors are sold separately for end to end connection.

 

Can various sizes fit together?

Yes!  Our series 2000, 3000 and 4000 can be attached from top to bottom as shown.

 

 

 

How Do the Mirror and Senenic Backgrounds install?

Picture shown below is our 3.2" case with a mirror background inserted.



Display Case Installation:

 

How do they mount?

We recommend mounting the display cases with 1 ¾” flat head screws. There is a drill guide line along the front back wall of the display case. Locate the studs in your wall, measure and drill and ready to go!

 

How long does the installation take?

Once you have determined where you will be mounting your cases, this installation time can also vary based on the quantity of displays being mounted. A standard display case can be installed in less than 15 minutes. More information can be found here: http://www.showcase-express.com/Installationinstructions.aspx
