Armour Systems designs, manufactures and installs conservation grade products:
• Showcases + Vitrines – Nova, Vision & Pro-Frame Systems
• Archival drawer storage
Our teams at Armour Systems + Museum Workshop bring together a unique combination of skills and experience. From offering the best preservation and safe display advice, to developing a back-of-envelope sketch into a fully engineered, original case design, we put our clients’ objects at the heart of what we do.
Our commitment to design and innovation drives our manufacturing and we work with partners from museums, galleries, libraries, and archives around the world in the task of protecting and displaying valuable materials and fine art collections.
In the manufacture of advanced exhibition showcases, that same commitment to innovation is driven through our Armour Systems facility in Bletchley. Here, our capability in precision engineering and complex electronic systems is founded on the technical expertise and world-class reputations of the hi-tech industries located in this part of the UK.
