We build our glass display cabinets to order at our Cheltenham workshop. Each type has been carefully designed to be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. They are also inherently strong as they are supplied fully assembles (not flat pack) to give years of solid service.

Each cabinet is designed around elegant structural aluminium corner posts for maximum strength. This construction method is unique to Designex. The shelves are securely fixed into the corner posts to give added rigidity and outstanding load capability. We don’t use flimsy brackets!


We are a small independent cabinet maker employing skilled craftsman who use the very best materials available to hand make each item to order. Our lead times are typically 6 to 8 weeks as we do not generally hold stock. We have examples available to view by appointment at our premises in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.


Choose from a range of lighting options to help achieve your desired effect, whether it’s a well-lit retail display geared for maximum sales with a real punch of powerful LED lighting or a soft light to display your cherished collection at home.


Our cabinets are delivered using our dedicated courier. Day of delivery can be specified at no additional cost. Our delivery prices exclude the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and all other offshore locations. A special rate will need to be quoted for these locations. If unsure please enquire. Discounted delivery rates are available for multiple cabinet orders.
