Bespoke Plinths and Display Cases

Once we know the dimensions of the base of your model, we can design and make a plinth to suit its destination and the installation. The plinth offers a great space for your branding, or key messages which we can print here in-house. To protect your model, we make display cases of any size or shape – usually from clear acrylic. We can make a variety of shapes, working in line with the size of the model. A circular plinth offers an alternative to traditional rectangle – and means people can gather in a natural circle to view your display. Your project manager will discuss your requirements, to understand the factors which will influence how we design and build it.

A bespoke plinth can be built in any material, we often choose those which are easy to machine, and can be finished in a variety of surface textures or wooden veneer. For an exhibition, trade show or museum, we can build in lighting, and design and apply graphics, so the plinth forms an eye-catching and useful extension of the model. To create a point of sale display, the plinth becomes part of the wow factor, where we design it to meet your brief. Plinths can be engineered to be extremely flexible – easy to collapse, fold, pop up, or de-construct.

For display purposes, we assemble cases with a unique glue, which absorbs into joins, creating a flawless, continuous surface. Acrylic is far lighter than glass, yet we can create the illusion of a crystal clear finish. We can etch the surface of the display case to extend the boundary of a model, tracing the outline of surrounding features in the buildings or landscape, when they are important to the visual aspect of the development.

Storage Space

Where required, a plinth can house the electronics, enabling us to design and include a dynamic lighting system in your model. Or we can design useful storage space in your bespoke plinth, for example, to display brochures or literature with the model.


We select lightweight materials, which are easy to transport by road, air or rail. It is possible to design a bespoke plinth, which doubles up as a flight case, if being transported overseas. We can make a flexible wrap and fix it with hidden fittings, so installers can easily re-locate the model whenever needed.

The model looks great and was indispensable for our meeting today. Thanks for all your efforts at such short notice.
