Bespoke Lightboxes at Canterbury Cathedral

During work to restore Canterbury Cathedral's Great West Window, several lofty stained glass panels needed to be temporarily removed.

This presented an incredible opportunity to display the panels at ground level, allowing visitors to observe them at close range for the very first time.

The stained glass at Canterbury is considered to be among the oldest in the world, dating back nearly 900 years. Spanlite was entrusted with developing a contained display system that offered both a safe environment and perfect illumination for these historic pieces.

Our bespoke lightboxes, backlit with integral LED Light Sheet, perfectly highlight the fine details of these exquisite pieces of art, whilst crucially protecting the glass throughout the exhibition.
