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.
U-Class (Uv1 type) display cases have aluminum micro-profiles with a mechanical coupling, rotating doors and are highly airtight.
A metal light attic attached to the upper micro-profiles houses LED lighting equipment. Setting the diodes into the interior of the top separates them from the display area to keep the internal temperature stable. Power can be supplied from either above or below the case, threading the wires along the vertical micro-profile.
The door rotates on the vertical axis by means of articulated quadrilateral hinges. A larger, load-bearing bottom hinge housed in the baseplate makes it possible to insert a miniature top hinge in the aluminum micro- profile to guide the door into its sealed position.
The display case has an airtight compartment in the base that houses the passive relative humidity control equipment; if a display requires active relative humidity control systems, the high base option is preferable.
U-Class cases are available in a special light version using aluminum and glass fused to polycarbonate sheets, which, thanks to its notable strength, enables far thinner glass panes to be employed. Despite its lightness – 40% lighter than a conventional case of the same size – this case provides a high standard of conservation and security and is especially appropriate for use in historic buildings with strict load limits applying to their floors.
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.
