You ABSOLUTELY will need the case to lock.


Depth will be a function of where you are going to put it and how
wide the corridor is.


I can see students, unaware that a new case is in
place and pehaps deeply involved in texting (if such is
allowed between classed), walking face first into the end of
the case! I have to dodge students in the hall here
with their heads down looking at those *&#$ cells.

Thanks for the suggestion. The cabinet
needs to be wood and look nice in

our hallway as people walk by. With some horizontal shelves to
display

some physics gadgets.

I teach in the high school and plan to get a hallway display
case to

highlight physics. I am wondering if any of you have such a
thing and can

recommend a case. I want it to be low enough so that our
youngest students

an have a look. I would also like it to have an outlet/light
for any

optics displays. How deep should it be? It will have a
security lock.


Cost is really not an issue. Just want something I can easily
change every

month to show different physics topics, awards, projects, etc.
