H Case – Archival Back Wall Case

Lexington H Case

Lexington Historical Society – A Community Answers the Call

The H Case is a 100% archival back wall case with a silica gel chamber below the removable deck.  We offer standard designs, but we do not have standard sizes. We manufacture each case  to your size requirements.

Archival materials

We use only inert materials for the H Case; it will not off-gas or otherwise damage your objects. Each H Case is outfitted with microclimate capability. This means you can maintain a Relative Humidity inside the case that is different  than that of the surrounding area.  H cases typically have an air exchange rate between .75 and 1/day. We offer an optional external port that allows access to the silica gel chamber without the need to move your objects. 

Museum Quality Vitrine

SmallCorp is well-known for the quality of our acrylic vitrines.  On the H Case, you lift off the four-sided vitrine to access your object.  The vitrine sits on an archival gasket to create a seal. We manufacture museum quality acrylic vitrines from clear and UV filtering acrylic, and from Optium Museum Acrylic®.

Object Deck

These archival back wall cases feature removable horizontal and vertical object decks.  We offer several archival deck options. Our standard ODP deck consists of dibond and aluminum, wrapped in fabric. Our ethadeck uses the ODP deck as a base and includes a layer of pinnable ethafoam beneath the fabric.  We also make object decks out of HDPE, expanded PVC and other materials.  We offer standard fabrics or we can work with those that you specify.


We finish H case pedestals with latex paint, plastic laminate or wood veneer. We also offer them primed or ready to paint. Leveling feet and silica gel chamber are standard.  The powdercoated aluminum collar captures the vitrine and accommodates security screws for locking. 

Archival Back Wall Case Options

H Cases may include interior or external label rails, and will accommodate LED spotlights, but not LED lightbars.
