Access mechanisms

Hinged door

Especially suitable for narrow doors or where there is no space for a sliding door. The glass panel is normally supplied with concealed pivot hinges behind the top and bottom frames. These hinges enable the door to fi rst open by moving forward and then turn to the side.

Monorail sliding door

The 3-way glass door covers the full width of the display case. When open the door extends about 60% of its length to the right or left. For interior access sufficient clear space is needed at least to one side of the case. Upon removing a safety stop, the door can be opened further, or it can be completely removed for the installation of larger exhibits.

Duorail sliding door

Each sliding door comes forward at the top and bottom and can slide in front of adjacent glassdoors or panels up to aproximately 70% of its length. In the closed position all glass panels are in one plane. Glass edges between panels are protected with an unobtrusive seal.

Whenever the upper doorlocks are not accessible or diffi cult to reach because of special construction or design, we recommend the use of our MAGNAFIX magnetic sliding system. It features an electric and natural magnet for the remote opening and closing of the door panels.

Duotrack sliding door

Especially suitable for long, high or angled display case fonts requiring full access to the interior but with limited space at both sides. Here the glass doors slide one behind the other without side extension. In the closed position all the glass doors are under contact pressure in one plane. Glass edges between panels are protected with an unobtrusive seal.

Removable glass panel

The glass panel is held in place by means of grooves at the top and bottom. The weight and size of the glass panel is limited.

Slide'n Turn System

For large free-standing display cases to be opended in one move with less stress on the statics of the case construction. The opening mechanism is based on the 3-way sliding door system, moving half way either to the right or the left. It then can pivot 90° around its own vertical axis, resulting in the glass panel being positioned parallel to the side of the case.


The glass hood is lifted as a whole, as an option with a synchronized-motor or hydraulically driven pistons, one at each corner. This is the convenient solution for all glass hoods, allowing free access at all four sides.


Designed for delicate and large exhibits which need maximum access. The display case is split vertically and diagonally in two parts. The glass sections move apart, driven by electric motors in the base and light box, dividing the glass panels while the base and light hood remain in place. The open case offers easy access to the interior from all sides.
