If you are looking to add a touch of class to your retail display, then glass display cubes could be the solution for you. These multi purpose display containers are easy to use, great for drawing the attention of shoppers and can be used for a diverse assortment of merchandise as a great alternative to using standard shelving displays. This glass display shelving is available in various different configurations of cube cabinets, from single cubes to 12-cube stacks. They can also be customised with a number of easy to use accessories that can make them suitable for any retail environment.
What are glass display cubes?
Glass display cubes are cube-shaped glass box display cases made out of toughened safety glass. They differ from many other types of glass-based retail display in that they are frameless – made entirely out of glass apart from the steel connectors which join the sheets of safety glass. The glass cube display cabinets are designed out of individual cubes. They are available in various different sizes, with larger models consisting of multiple cubes stacked on top of each other or side by side. Cube display units are great for showcasing products such as jewellery, trophies, antiques or rare collectible goods.
The glass cubes are perfect for brightening up any retail outlet and giving store owners a stylish option for creating eye-catching and innovative displays. Features of these units include:
- interlocking 5mm polished edge safety glass panels
- premium quality steel chrome plated connectors that securely join the panels together
- a range of optional additional features including safety locks, mirrored back and base panels, fitted LED lighting, hinged doors and additional glass shelves
These glass display units can be placed anywhere in the store, whether that be up against walls, free standing in store aisles or in front window displays. Smaller models are suitable for counter top display.

Where can glass display cubes be used?
These units look great in all kinds of retail outlets but are particularly well suited to stores selling valuables or rarities. Different models appeal to different types of stores. Examples of where these cases can be used effectively are:
- Jewellery stores – great for keeping valuable jewellery pieces well organised and attractively displayed. Jewellers can choose from the range of towers and mega-cube configurations to suit their requirements.
- Antiques stores – collectible and valuable items such as ornaments, knick-knacks and rare books can be kept in pristine condition.
- Electronics stores – valuable and easily shop-soiled goods such as laptops, new model mobile phones and expensive tech gadgets look good in these cases and are protected from customer handling.
- Bakery stores – artisan cakes and other baked and crafted delicacies look great as part of either a counter top or a tower cube window display.
- Arts and crafts stores – the multi and mega cube tower displays look great in an artistic environment and give creative store owners the chance to show off their individualism with unique merchandise displays.
- Gift stores – expensive and attractive gifts such as figurines or designer stationery sets can be brought to life in a display with LED lighting.
- Designer boutiques – can use glass display cases for exclusive accessories such as designer scarves and gloves laid out as part of a cube tower display in the window or on the shop floor.
- Trophy stores – the larger glass cases offer the perfect display solution for these stores to safely and effectively showcase anything from silver cups to medals to commemorative plaques.
Where glass display cubes can be placed in your store
These large and small glass display cases are a great feature to add anywhere in your store. For example, you can place them:
- Against the shop walls – units don’t take up too much room so can line the walls of stores such as collectors stores or jewelry stores without disrupting customer space. The larger display cases such as the 9-cube or 12-cube display towers can provide a beautiful eye-catching perimeter to any shop environment.
- On the shop floor – cube towers can provide an innovative alternative display style to bog standard shelving for modern stores, for example cutting edge electronics or gadget stores. The units are free standing and will again give you space-saving opportunities while still offering scope to place plenty of merchandise on display.
- On the shop counter – the smaller lockable glass display cases such as the 1-cube, 2-cube and 3-cube models are a fantastic counter feature if your counter unit has space to accommodate. This looks great in toy stores and artisan bakeries and are an ideal way of encouraging extra browsing and thus extra sales while shoppers queue to make their purchase.
- Window displays – what better arena for a well-designed and creative glass case display than in the window where it can be appreciated by passers-by even after store closing time? The larger glass units can stand freely in the window while our smaller glass display cases for sale can be placed on stands or tables for added effect.
Benefits of glass display cubes
There are a number of important benefits of glass cubes to retail store owners. These include:
- They are stylish – glass display cases add a touch of class to the store and are an effective showpiece that can be used to draw shoppers into the store and towards certain products. Goods can be attractively displayed on stands inside the cubes, and accessories such as LED lighting and mirrored glass can be used to good effect to create stylish arrangements.
- They are very easy to use – from being easy to assemble to causing a minimal fuss in maintenance on a day-to-day basis, these cubes are designed to make life easier as well as help shift units. Shelves fit easily in and out with adjustable clips and everything is easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.
- They are flexible – from small counter top models to the 12 cube mega towers, there is something to suit every retailer from elite boutiques to dusty old antique stores, from multi-floor department chain stores to tiny family-run independent businesses.
- They are durable – all products are made using toughened safety glass and high-quality chrome steel connectors. The glass is scratch and stain proof and, unlike materials such as metal or wood, won’t start to deteriorate in quality as time goes on. All cases should last very many years if looked after properly.
- They offer protective display – all products displayed in the glass cases can be viewed but not touched. This helps to protect stock against damage, shop soiling or theft, which is a good money-saving benefit to businesses.
- They save on space – glass display cubes are very efficiently designed so as to include no waste. There is no cumbersome or chunky wooden frame or elaborate design feature that serves no purpose. Every millimeter inside the case can be used as display space, so these units are a very effective use of space on the shop floor. Ultimately, more products can be displayed and there is more room for browsers in the store.
How to enhance your glass cube displays with accessories
You can bring your displays to life by adding an extra dimension to them with the available accessories which enable you to be creative with the layout of your merchandise and draw the attention of store browsers. Both our large and small glass display cases for Australia stores can be fitted with add-ons including:
- Light fittings – whether this is LED strip lighting or timber pelmets, lighting can be used not just to brighten up products but to add a shine to them, whether this be a 12-cube trophy wall cube display or a small glass jewelry display case sitting next to the cash register.
- Mirror panels – perfect for combining with display lighting to increase the illumination and also add a spatial dimension to the displays, making them look bigger and more filled with merchandise than they actually are.
- Glass shelving – extra shelving can be supplied to help you maximise your display space within the glass cabinets. This is great if you have smaller items to showcase, such as figurines, ornamental goods or decorative jewelry. A small glass display case with shelves placed at the point of sale can be a good way of generating extra sales.
