Casing up Castleford

Progress at Castleford Forum Museum is rapidly moving forward.
We have just taken delivery of the specialist museum cases, which look amazing in the new space. 

This is the case for the Iron Age chariot

The cases are designed to keep museum objects safe, secure and in the perfect environment (with the right temperature and humidity).  Trays for materials to control the humidity are built into the cases.

In built LED lighting is not only energy efficient but also is cool to protect the objects.

This case is built into a museum structure - the hole next to it will be filled with a screen to show films of Castleford.

You can see here that there is stonework waiting to be installed.

During manufacture and installation of the cases, strong smelling adhesives and cleaning products are used.  There has to be a 'gassing-off' period where the cases are left open for some time, before the objects are installed.

All that is left to do now is fit the graphics, mount the objects, install the objects, prepare the object captions, finish off the structures, fit the AV, sort out the interactive elements.....
