Conservation By Design Limited have just developed a new heavy duty
aluminium frame as part of our Planorama aluminium drawer  system.
The frame is also designed to act as a secure glass top which turns
the drawers into a showcase. It will take laminated security glass
up to 11.5mm thickness. The profile also allows wide selection of
special decorative inserts to be added that can change the
aesthetics of the individual frame.

It is also possible to have a vertical Planorama drawer combined to
the frame to allow a rapid change over of exhibits. The National
Museum of Scotland already stores its Military Colour collections in
2.3m square Planorama drawers supplied 12 years ago so you will have
some experience of the system.

2m tall x 1.75m wide would be no problem as we anticipate making
much larger sizes. Our standard extrusion length being 6m long.
