What Are the Benefits of Using a Perspex Display Case?

While glass display cabinets are not without their appeal, contemporary acrylic display cases are difficult to surpass.

True, there is something immensely attractive about the charm of conventional glass. For years, it has been the choice of companies and residences, adding a touch of elegance and refinement to many sorts of décor.

However, developments in Perspex manufacturing technology have enabled acrylic to gain a significant competitive advantage. Acrylic has a wide range of applications, from common retail locations to upscale diamond stores to trophy display cases and more.

With that in mind, here are just a few reasons to choose high-quality Perspex as an alternative to standard glass for your next display case:

Increased clarity

Acrylic, contrary to popular assumption, is more transparent than glass. This is because the surface of Perspex does not cause reflection issues to the same extent as glass does. You will understand this difficulty if you have ever had to position your face uncomfortably near a sheet of glass to look through it due to poor reflections.

You don’t have to worry about reflected glare with high-quality Perspex, which might ordinarily impair your vision of what’s inside. This is, of course, a significant advantage in all retail and corporate environments.

Increased security

Neither glass nor Perspex are indestructible. If you treat either too hard, it will ultimately shatter. But the difference here is that, in the odd event that an acrylic display case does break, it will not damage anyone nearby.

Glass, especially safety glass, has the ability to shatter into bits that can pose a serious health risk. The worst-case situation with acrylic is that the casing splits or falls apart into harmless fragments.

Greater strength

Similarly, heavy-duty acrylic has the potential to be much stronger than glass. That is why many of the world’s most famous retail establishments have long used acrylic to improve in-store security.

High-quality Perspex is nearly impossible to puncture without the use of specialised tools, making it an excellent choice for exhibiting jewels, watches, and other valuables. Along with being safer in the event of a disaster, a Perspex display case is significantly less likely to shatter in the first place.

Lighter and easier to transport

As the size of glass display cases increases, they become more difficult to carry and transport. Not only because of their potential fragility but also because of their mass. High-end acrylic, on the other hand, is one of the lightest materials now available to the worldwide industrial sector.

This implies that, regardless of the size and design of the device in issue, a Perspex display enclosure will always be significantly lighter. Not to mention that they are significantly easier (and safer) to transfer and carry from one site to another.

Cost savings

Despite the numerous advantages of using Perspex, glass display cabinets are still much more expensive. This is mostly because glass display cases are more expensive to build while also being more difficult to carry and construct owing to their weight. Furthermore, the theoretically infinite lifespan of a Perspex display enclosure adds up to unrivalled long-term value for money. They are less expensive to acquire in the first place and are almost certain to be more cost-effective in the long term.
