Display cabinet recommendations please

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon All,

 

Can anyone please recommend a UK based retailer of suitable glass display cabinets - that can handle the weight of 1 gauge and O gauge models? I suppose I am looking for an all glass multi-shelf cabinet at least 1 Meter in width to allow up to 1 gauge 1 coach. 

 

My stock level is getting to the point where I can’t keep it all on my very small layouts, and I’d love to be able to at least display it all nicely off layout.

 

What do you all use?

 

kind regards, Thomas.

I have two Ikea “Billy” cabinets with glass doors, which have lasted well over 15 years.  

 

They are not a metre wide however, only 80 cms.

Having built several custom display cabinets for collectors, modelers and retailers I would offer my services. Alas  now I live over here and think the shipping would cost trice the outlay for the materials and work. However before you go out and buy cheep off the peg cabinets, try getting a quote from a local cabinet maker and source the glass yourself. You might be pleasantly surprised!

 

Regards Shaun

Thank you guys for the recommendations. I was hoping to not have to commission cabinets myself. I think I’ll look into ‚Picture Pride Displays‘.

Having see Picture Pride's products at Stafford Show, I must admit I would go for them if I was in the market for a display cabinet.

Lidl well display cases in December, there is a thread on here about them. The good thing is they are only £60 but massive and solid.

I got one from LIDL the Christmas before last, so hopefully it will be an annual thing. Very good quality, locking with a key and very nice price. Also very heavy to carry home.
