Display cases featuring the latest in protective and low-iron glass technology.

ARTEFACTS spanning more than 300 years of military history and warfare are on show to visitors at Northumberland’s Alnwick Castle in display cases featuring the latest in protective and low-iron glass technology, supplied by specialist manufacturer Romag.

The glass was specified for the new display cases housing the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers’ permanent museum in the Abbot’s Tower at the castle, protecting and showcasing hundreds of artefacts covering the history of the regiment from 1674 to the present day.

The exhibit includes weapons, uniforms, musical instruments, armour, diaries, letters and other countless items of personal, regimental equipment and militaria. The centenary of the First World War is also marked by the museum with a special Great War exhibition.

The display cases, built by museum fit out and display specialists The Workhaus, offer a ‘close encounter’ visitor experience and feature integrated top and bottom banding to hide the door hinges.

The glass panels function as an integral part of the display cabinets to provide an airtight seal for improved humidity control, helping to protect the artefacts from potential moisture damage in the historic setting of the Tower, which itself is hundreds of years old.

Graham Paylor, case designer at Workhaus, said: “This is an interesting heritage application, reflecting our ability to work with Romag to deliver effective technical solutions that provide long-term high performance and visitor safety benefits.

“The specification called for a high quality, high performance glass viewing solution with added security, which Romag has provided.”

Romag safety glass is stringently tested to ensure manufacturing processes comply with industry regulations and performance standards. More details about our showcase glass page.
