Working with TEG

Plinth mounted or free-standing, Vista's easily demountable, frameless design and well-sealed structure makes it suitable for applications where clear all-round visibility and specific case sizes are required.

Vista can be specified in single, stand-alone form, or in multi-bay configurations of different shapes and sizes to suit your needs. Suspended shelving can be easily added to maximise the display potential.

We can supply separate, removable lighting headers for those occasions when overhead gallery lighting is not enough. Vista can also be supplied with Optiwhite™ or Schott Amiran® low reflective glass.

Technical information

System sizes

Vista is available in a variety of standard sizes and specific made-to-order sizes, although careful consideration should be given to the ease of handling of larger panels of glass and also the supporting plinths (if present).

Structural glass

11.5mm thick laminated anti-bandit glass conforming to BS EN:356P4A is fitted as standard. The laminated glass we use also has the added benefit of filtering over 97% of UV radiation between the harmful wavelengths of 320 & 380 nanometres.

Your glazing options include:

  • High quality low-iron content Optiwhite™ glass, which makes the objects on display look much better, as it doesn't have the green tint that is seen in standard glass.
  • SCHOTT Amiran® low-reflective glass treatment is also available to further enhance the viewing experience. This treated glass is only 1% reflective compared to the normal 8% reflectivity of normal glass and offers an exceptionally clear view of the display objects.

System extrusions

The showcase structure is made of custom-designed aluminium extrusions, which are powder coated as standard.


The Vista-3 door is equipped with a fully-concealed roller bearing pull/slide mechanism. The Vista-4 door is equipped with a fully-concealed dual-action hinge system. Both door types are secured with a concealed hardened steel espagnolette closure mechanism.


Each door is equipped with extractable Abloy high security CL291 cartridge locks, which can be suited to suit individual requirements.

Lighting options

Both Vista System case types may be fitted with a simple, removable (drop-on) lighting hood which houses a set of dimming Low Voltage lights.

Power supply

Each case (if fitted with lighting) requires an external power supply, so please let us know your voltage requirements when you order. Power is usually supplied from an overhead track. All connections utilise standard IEC plugs and sockets so no user wiring is required.


Inert extruded silicone seals are fitted within a discreet protective aluminium edging. The seals are easily replaced if they become damaged, as they are not glued in place. Cases typically have an air exchange rate of 0.25 (or better) per 24 hours.

Environmental control

Each case can be equipped with the following options:

  • A low capacity passive system using a conditioning material reservoir beneath the internal base display board.
  • A high capacity remote passive system using a conditioning material reservoir in the supporting plinth (this can be serviced without opening the showcase).
  • A fully active climate control system can be located in a supporting plinth or an adjacent structure. A constant power supply is required for this option.


Each case can be fitted with fully height adjustable, stainless steel pendant rod shelving with 8mm thick toughened glass shelves as standard.

Base display board

The standard base display board is manufactured from ZF-MDF, which is sealed with a water-based acrylic lacquer and wrapped in fabric from the Baumann Ultra range. Alternative panels and finishes are available.

Case plinth

Where applicable, the standard supporting plinth is manufactured from ZF-MDF with integral levelling adjusters. The plinth is normally painted and may easily be removed, repaired and/or repainted if required. Alternative construction methods and finishes are available.
