Display Developments Makes A French Connection

In recent years Paris has seen a huge growth in restaurants offering foreign cuisine. The days when moules frites and steak tartare were the standard options are now gone forever. Parisians and tourists can now choose from an extensive array of ethnic restaurants. Whether you fancy sushi or tacos, empanadas or Vietnamese pho you will find it on the streets of Paris and it could be argued that Parisian cuisine has ceased to be very French.

To add to this wide choice there is now a British option too. The appropriately named L’Entente, Le British Brasserie recently opened its doors on Rue Monsigny, close to the Bourse and the Palais Royale. L’Entente offers an eclectic mix of high quality typically British plates such as shepherd’s pie or sausage and mash followed by apple crumble, all washed down with a glass or two of finest English wine.What better way can there be to promote a British menu than by choosing a superb quality British made polished brass menu display case with LED illumination. Silvercases the high quality hospitality display brand from Display Developments based in Belvedere, Kent have been manufacturing polished brass menu cases since 1970 and they have long been the menu case of choice for an ever growing number of hotels and restaurants across Europe.

Hellas Helvetia Recommend Display Developments For Outdoor Display Cases.

Steven Kalogroulis, of Hellas-Helvetia Ltd, a leading London property management company, was looking to update the display units outside his company premises. They originally had four units designed and fabricated by Silvercases over 40 years ago but he wanted bespoke replacements manufactured to slightly larger specifications and also to incorporate LED lighting.

Following a consultation with our expert design team, Mr Kalogroulis gave the go-ahead for the fabrication of the new stainless steel display units. On completion of the project, Steven was happy to give the following glowing recommendation.

“I recently purchased 4 new display units from Display Developments for my property company that I am extremely happy about. The 4 new units were to replace 4 identical units that my father had bought from Silvercases (now Display Developments) over 40 years ago which were still working and in excellent condition.

The only reason we changed to new ones was that I wanted the new display cases to be slightly bigger (wider and taller) and so that we could have more modern lighting with LEDs. I cannot express how good these units are compared to other cheap Aluminium display units I looked at that look tatty after a few years use. I see so many aluminium noticeboards around my area and they all look cheaply made and do not have the quality look of Silvercases.

Hellas Helvetia Display Cases

The units that Display Developments manufacture are made of high quality stainless steel and look great, have amazing build quality and last over 40 years with me being the proof! The units look professional and sharp, have fantastic hinges to open and close the doors meaning they do not bend over time, have fantastic locks, and maintain the quality feel and look over time.

I don’t often write a review, unless I am extremely happy with the service and product. I am very happy to write this review as these units are a class above anything else on the market.

The service I got from Display Developments, and in particular Malcolm, was top class. We gave the exact measurements that we wanted and their team ensured we got exactly what we required.

If you want your business to look sharp and you intend to trade for many years as I do, I can’t recommend enough that you should use Display Developments to build your custom made units”.

Blaze Laserlights Project

Display Developments were approached by Blaze, the urban cycling brand leaders, to manufacture unique display cases to showcase their new laserlights in retail stores. The display case needed an integral mirror to reflect light from the laserlights onto the ceiling.

Display Developments are skilled in making acrylic display cases but the projection of the laserlight beam presented a challenge. A key requirement was the ability to reflect the laser light at a specific angle ensuring the light would be visible from anywhere in the store. Due to the limitation of the overall dimensions of the case, it had to be designed to ensure the laserlight was positioned perfectly straight in the middle of the display case.

Several prototypes were completed to test the different mirror angles but the final design totally fulfilled the brief and Blaze were delighted with the finished product.

Why Menu Display Cases Still Have Their Place

If you frequently visit restaurants you will no doubt have noticed that many of the fast food chains are now displaying menu options on digital tablets such as ipads. As the majority of their customers are younger and therefore more comfortable browsing and even placing orders via a tablet display this does seems like a sensible menu display choice and could even help attract more customers to that cheaper end of the market.

However, rest assured that most restaurant customers still prefer to view a printed menu and therefore they will have the full menu on view. They can scan the whole menu display without having to scroll or touch a screen that others have touched with greasy or dirty fingers and also of course left their germs on the screen to be transferred onto the next viewer’s fingers.

Mirror Polished Menu Case

As the title of this article says, Display Developments believe menu display cases and stands still have their place and that place is most definitely front of house and in the right position to ensure your menu has maximum exposure. Whether you are looking for an indoor or even an outdoor menu display stand, Display Developments have the ideal solution with a diverse range of menu cases and stands to choose from. From the traditional London Menu Stand to the much more functional & minimalist Vector Menu Stand, they can offer you the perfect menu stand to match your décor or location.
