A long association with the National Museum and the Office of Public Works in Dublin has included the refurbishment of archaeological galleries at Kildare Street, the development of innovative showcase designs for the new galleries at Collins Barracks and the supply of TESS Evolution cases for other NMI branch museums across the country.

Out of Storage is a gallery aiming to get many more items from the collection onto public display. For this we developed sealed showcases using an industrial warehouse shelving system.

The national silver collection is displayed over several galleries with the custom designed cases having many original and innovative features, a result of close collaboration with the interior architects to deliver a series of unique galleries. The Eileen Gray Galleries display a unique collection of items associated with this outstanding Irish designer and architect.

ClickNetherfield were the only supplier to have so many different solutions to the different areas of the museum. They developed a unique design to solve the storage problems.
