For the historic reinstallation of the “Upper Morton Galleries of Medieval and Renaissance Art and Armor”, REIER manufactured and supplied 37 display cases in various styles as well as 17 oversized Specta KLR display case fronts and other components incorporated within architectural elements supplied by the museum’s contractor. The completed casework is equipped with lighting solutions sourced by the museum as well as REIER’s own LED fixtures.

The project also features a distinctive gallery lined with classically detailed wall cases in a natural wood finish (walnut), many of which are equipped with glass topped display drawers for the display of firearms and other artifacts.
