When buying a display cabinet for your business or home, there are a few key things you should consider;
How can I find the right floor standing cabinet for me?
The right cabinet will largely depend on the amount of space you have available to you. Floor standing cabinets come in a range of widths and heights so make sure to carefully measure the area where you wish to place your cabinet. It is also wise to make sure the floor is flat as this will help keep your display cabinet and valuables secure although some cabinets do come with levelling feet to accommodate floors that are uneven, so make sure to check the features and description.
Can I adjust the height of the shelves in my display cabinet to accommodate my items?
Many display cabinets come with multiple shelf points so you can adjust the height of the shelves but please check the features and descriptions for individual products.
Can I add extra shelves to my freestanding display cabinet?
You can add additional shelves to most display cabinets but always carefully check that the shelves are the right fit or speak with the supplier who will be best placed to advise.
Will my item arrive assembled or will I need to build it?
Most display cases will arrive flat packed as they are large items and difficult to ship fully assembled but we do offer a range of cabinets that arrive assembled. All items that require assembly will come with easy to follow instructions and fixings to put the item together.
How do I care for my display cabinet?
To maintain your display cabinet, we recommend regular dusting with a dry cloth and a mild glass cleaner to keep any glass crystal clear.
