SmallCorp D-400 case


Minimalist archival table case 

Part of our line of table cases, the D-400 is a sealed, microclimate case with a minimalist aesthetic, perfect for works on paper and other small artifacts. This case includes powdercoated aluminum legs, powdercoated aluminum collar, an archival display deck, and an acrylic vitrine. Our cases are based on standard designs manufactured to customers’ size requirements. 

    • Made with inert materials that will not off-gas or damage objects.
    • Microclimate capability to maintain the targeted relative humidity inside the case.
    • Air exchange rate between .75 and .1 per day.

The D-400’s 5-sided, acrylic vitrine can be lifted off for access to objects and is secured to the aluminum frame with screws. An archival silicone gasket creates a seal between the vitrine and the case frame. We manufacture museum-quality acrylic vitrines from clear or UV-filtering acrylic and are one of the few companies to manufacture museum-quality Optium Museum Acrylic® vitrines.

Glass options are also available. 

Did you know we make replacement vitrines to fit existing cases?

This case includes a removable deck for easy access to silica gel. We offer several archival deck options and stock 4 archival fabrics (Oddy tested). We can also source custom archival fabrics.   

  • SmallCorp’s standard ODP deck consists of an aluminum composite panel adhered to an aluminum support frame, wrapped in fabric.   
  • Our Ethadeck includes an ODP deck base with a top layer of pinnable Ethafoam™ wrapped in fabric.    
  • Other available options include decks made with HDPE, expanded PVC, and more.  
  • Talk to us about slanted deck options  

The D-400’s base consists of a powdercoated aluminum collar, square legs, and H stretcher crossbar. This case comes standard with leveling feet.
