Furnish your exhibition with the technology, functionality and elegance that is the Meyvaert Standard Freestanding Case, belonging to our Meyvaert Products range. The case comes with options and features allowing you to select a case to comply with your requirements whilst meeting the highest levels of conservation standards. The case is available with a lighting top or a glass top.


The Meyvaert Standard Freestanding Case is part of the Meyvaert Products range. The Meyvaert Products and Smart Solutions share a recurring feature: our 40 mm high profile. The widespread application of this profile will ensure a consistent design throughout your exhibition when you use various Meyvaert Products and Solutions.

As part of the Meyvaert Products range, the Standard Freestanding Case is equipped with this unique, innovative, and highly acclaimed 40 mm high profile, expertly designed to incorporate the following value-adding elements:

- A minimal perimeter frame, allowing a larger internal base panel.
- An ideally positioned hinge, allowing a > 90° door opening.
- An accurate positioning of the seal, ensuring airtightness with an AER below 0,1 or 10% per day.
- A discreet lock position to increase security.


The freestanding case can be used as a standalone case or set against a wall. The hinged door provides a full-width opening, allowing easy access to the inside of the case. The opening direction of the door can be reversed without any additional parts.

The case can be easily moved with two additional furniture moving devices. 

Minimum maintenance is required: the seals and the locks should be inspected after only 5 years. A complete user and maintenance manual is provided.


Useful info


Each exhibition can be presented to its fullest potential thanks to 8 LED spots. This flexible lighting system complies with the highest museum quality requirements.

The color and finish of the case is RAL 9005 Black Zero Matte powder coating. This finish has been specifically engineered for all Meyvaert products. The Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is extremely low whilst keeping a high resistance to scratches. Special colors and finishes can be selected upon request.

Artifacts vary in size, weight and mounting requirements. Therefore, we have developed several internal elements, from which you can select the best fit for your unique object presentation.

- Half-size and full-size shelves for smaller objects. The shelves are supported by a stainless-steel frame which is connected to the case top. The display height of the shelves can be adjusted.
- Powder-coated steel plinth for heavier small objects. 
- PVC foamboard base panel for objects requiring bottom mounting.

‘Low-iron’, often referred to as extra-white, laminated glass, is used to avoid the slightly green tinge of regular glass. This will allow the visitors to better appreciate the true colors of objects. An optional anti-reflective (low-reflective) coating on the glass is available. This coating strongly reduces distracting light reflections and improves the appearance and color rendering of the objects. In order to create a seamless effect, the fixed glasses are mitred and joined with black or translucent seals.


To meet the highest levels of conservation requirements and to create a stable relative humidity environment inside the case for the objects, the Standard Freestanding showcase is equipped with an externally accessible silica gel compartment. The compartment is concealed behind the kick plinth and can contain up to 2 full-size silica gel cassettes. The external access prevents disturbance of the relative humidity inside the display area when replacing the cassettes. The 10 mm ventilation gap around the perimeter of the case allows for effective passive ventilation.

For specific locations or objects requiring a specific relative humidity level, we offer an optional invisible fan module for enhanced air exchange between the silica gel compartment and the display volume.
Other features ensuring optimal conservation of your valuables include:

- All materials and finishes used inside the case are neutral and have been ODDY tested by an external accredited laboratory.
- The case has an air exchange rate of less than 0,1 or 10% per day. 
- The laminated glass filters up to 99,9% of UV lighting.


We use anti-bandit laminated 11,5 mm glass, composed of 2 x 5 mm float glass with a 1,34 mm PVB interlayer. 

The showcase has two Abloy security locks, which are optimally suited for use in showcases. Every lock can have a unique key combination. The closing mechanism actively compresses the seal as the door is secured into the closed position. The locks and closing mechanism are positioned at the top and the bottom of the case. A security grill situated between the silica gel compartment and base panel allows air to circulate freely inside the display area but prevents access to the display volume.
