Goppion designs, develops and builds display cases and museum installations. The company works with curators and exhibit designers to develop solutions to individual projects with a collaborative approach.
M-Class (Mv1 type) display cases are demountable, modular cases with a rotating door and a medium air exchange rate. They come with either a glass top or a metal light attic. They are versatile and have the ability to adapt to a variety of display requirements. The steel frame consists of mechanically connected aluminum profiles and joints.
M-Class display cases can be supplied with four transparent glass sides, suitable for placing in the center of the room, or with one or more opaque vertical sides (backboards) made of honeycomb aluminum.
M-class display cases use special half-round gaskets made of platinum silicone. Setting the gaskets into milled grooves in the edges of the glass panes makes them virtually invisible and inaccessible, thereby increasing the case’s security. The gaskets help the seal to guarantee an air exchange rate of 3 days. Using a second ring gasket in both the metal light attic or top and the display deck makes the sections typical of this display unit interchangeable without altering the structure itself, which can, therefore, be used over and over with different configurations and performances.
Modular assembly and adaptability
Both the metal light attic and the display deck of each unit are separate from the display case’s structural elements to enable several modular cases to be combined. When arrangements involve four or more modules, a pre-stressed tensioner is included in the metal light attic or glass top.
Modular display cases are arranged with a pre-stressed tensioner so as to support the glass tops (or metal light attics) of the individual modules without having to use supporting uprights in the center of the display case, thus providing a completely unimpeded display space.

Goppion uses ecologically-correct methods and makes efforts to use sustainable materials as well as research new materials and manufacturing processes with low environmental impacts. Goppion designs cases to last over time to reduce the need for replacement and recycling of industrial products.
