Inca Showcases

The Inca design solution allows cases to be customised in terms of size, shape, finish and opening system so that they become a major feature of the exhibition design.

Our latest Inca 6 features state-of-the-art surface-bonded technology. Adding an element of minimalist elegance to any gallery with its stunning all-glass fa├žade, the Inca 6 is a breathtakingly beautiful feat of design.

This all-glass case with a light hood can be utilised in most display situations, free-standing or mounted on plinths, shelves or walls. The structural integrity means uninterrupted expanses of showcase are possible and the flexibility of the system allows L-shaped, triangular, hexagonal and other shaped cases to be built to very large sizes with adjacent doors only requiring minimal clearances.

Type of exhibits

Inca cases are suitable for the widest range of medium to large exhibits, they have been used for almost every type of exhibit including costume, natural history, vehicles, weapons, ceramics, silver, tapestries, banners, sporting memorabilia, archaeology, sculpture, ethnography and industrial machinery.


The top light-hood allows a comprehensive variety of lighting solutions to be provided with lighting also possible from the bottom and sides of cases.


Inca cases incorporate a discrete channel within the soffit allowing a highly flexible hanging rod shelving solution to be integrated. We can also incorporate cantilever shelving systems within Inca cases with structural panels.


Inca cases are designed to be opened by one person, they are structurally stable when open and in most circumstances there is no need for additional external support. They can be provided with hinges or with pull and slide door opening systems, larger cases can be provided with electrically operated doors with fail-safe mechanisms in the event of power failure. It is also possible to remove doors when exceptional access may be required.

Protecting your exhibits

Conservation - The Inca design solution is inherently well sealed and with careful selection of baseboard and structural materials it is suitable for the most sensitive of exhibits to be displayed.

Security - A wide range of glass specifications are available. With hinged doors, hinges are fully concealed and cases can be provided with a two stage locking system using a mechanical lock and a high security Abloy™ CL291 lock providing a high level of security and a wide range of keying options.
