Tree thumbnailBuilding exhibits with security of objects in mind can help prevent theft and vandalism.

C. Dean Blair provides tips for ways to improve security in museum exhibits.

Locking and opening cases are a major focus in this Technical Leaflet, complete with diagrams to show the best type of screws and bolts for exhibit cases.

Alarm systems are also an effective method for security and Blair provides a discussion of the best alarms for cases.

Sometimes using cases for all objects is not possible and Blair explains how to keep uncased items secure.
