Indoor & Outdoor use of metal Display Cases

Metal display cases designed by Obsidian Manufacturing are versatile enough to be used in both indoor and outdoor settings. This adaptability is one of the key benefits of choosing metal for your display cases, as it combines durability with aesthetic flexibility, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of display requirements. Here’s how metal display cases can serve both environments effectively:

Indoor Use

For indoor environments, metal display cases offer a sleek, modern look that can complement any interior design. Whether it’s for retail, museum, gallery, or corporate settings, the aesthetic appeal of metal cases adds to the ambiance of the space. The controlled environment of indoor settings allows these cases to protect displayed items from dust, damage, and potential theft. With options for integrated lighting, adjustable shelving, and customized finishes, metal display cases can enhance the presentation of any item, making them more appealing to viewers.

  • Durability and Security: Metal’s robustness provides a secure enclosure for valuable items, protecting them from tampering and unauthorized access.

  • Customization and Aesthetics: With various finishes and designs, metal cases can be tailored to match the branding or thematic requirements of the indoor space, enhancing the overall visual experience.

Outdoor Use

Using metal display cases outdoors introduces unique advantages, especially when considering durability and resistance to environmental factors. Metal, particularly when treated for outdoor use, can withstand various weather conditions, from extreme sunlight to rain and snow, without deteriorating.

  • Weather Resistance: Special coatings and treatments can be applied to metal display cases to prevent rust and corrosion, ensuring they maintain their appearance and integrity over time.

  • Security Features: Outdoor cases can be reinforced with weatherproof locks and shatterproof glass to protect against both environmental conditions and potential vandalism.

  • Visibility and Protection: Outdoor metal display cases can be designed with UV-protected glass to prevent fading of displayed items due to sunlight exposure, ensuring that items remain visible and unharmed by the elements.

Considerations for Outdoor and Indoor Metal Display Cases

When opting for metal display cases, especially for outdoor use, certain considerations must be taken into account to ensure longevity and functionality:

  • Material Selection: Choosing the right metal and finish is crucial for outdoor cases. Stainless steel, aluminum, and other alloys that are resistant to corrosion and weathering are preferred choices.

  • Environmental Protection: Treatments such as powder coating can enhance durability and resistance to environmental stressors, making them suitable for outdoor applications.

  • Maintenance: While metal display cases are generally low maintenance, outdoor cases may require periodic cleaning and inspection to ensure they remain in optimal condition.

The Port Colborne Museum just ordered our very first custom designed display case for our museum in an 1860s house. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Justin worked with me to design a perfect mix of modern and traditional to fit our Museum's aesthetic. He was very knowledgeable and professional and easy to work with. We look forward to working with Obsidian again for our next display cases.

Justin was excellent to work with. He was able to get our project done within our limited timeline. We considered doing an IKEA kitchen, but working with Justin was so much simpler. He took care of the details, and his price was very comparable to IKEA.
The owner Justin was awesome to deal with. He really took his time to work with me on the design that would work best for what I was trying to accomplish. As a sports memorabilia collector, I knew I wanted the best showcase to display my items. I absolutely love what we came up with and would highly recommend Obsidian Manufacturing to any other collectors or even retail outlets out there. Top notch for sure!
