We have moved!!
Our Southern Office has moved location. Leaving Thame behind we have moved to new premises in Luton. The new premises has a showroom and a meeting space to meet with our all important clients.
The new address is:
The Luton office is conveniently placed only a ten minute walk from Luton Airport.
We are delighted to announce the arrival of the TESS Evolution 2 case. Demountable and modular as before, but featuring sleek, surface-bonded glass panel technology and improved conservation properties; as well as options for LED lighting, concealed locks, a slimmer top profile, concealed power conduit, improved shelving system, and much, much more.
As with our existing Evolution, the case allows the end-user to assemble, dismantle and move the cases themselves without expert assistance.
In addition to this, we have also introduced Evolution 2’s chic big sister, the Inca 6 Demountable. These cases are made to measure (rather than modular) to suit your specific requirements, and therefore can be produced to any size and even in multi-bay format. And crucially for wider cases, the Inca 6 Demountable has options for pull and slide doors, as opposed to a hinged-only opening. The case features a larger light hood for more lighting and light source options; and there is no limit on colour, finish, glass type etc.
Please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on either of these cases.
It’s been a while since we posted a news update – we’ve been so busy over the last 12 months we’ve barely had the time, but by the end of June 2013 we reached the incredible milestone in our unique carbon offset programme of 1000 tons since we introduced the scheme in 2010! This has been achieved by working in conjunction with our carbon offset partners, Carbon Footprint, and by working harder than ever in developing our sustainable solutions to a world-leading standard – not to mention our unique tree-planting programme which is constantly adding to the lungs of the world.
Needless to say we are very proud at having reached this tremendous milestone and we hope it demonstrates our absolute commitment to sustainability and the preservation of the planet for future generations.
Abbey House Museum in Kirkstall is housed in the gatehouse of the ruined Kirkstall Abbey, a grade II listed building.
The ground floor of the museum is set out as an area of Victorian streets, illustrating a range of shops and services and including original shop fittings etc. Upstairs galleries feature the history of Kirkstall Abbey, Childhood, and Leeds Social History, as well as temporary exhibitions. TESS have supplied Evolution Modular cases and PrismHD desk style cases to the museum in the past, but for the latest gallery upgrade we have been asked to supply our Mono-3d high security system – not just for the security aspects but also because the cases can be taken in dis-assembled through a tricky route, then re-assembled in place of some older timber framed cases without looking out of place in the traditional room setting.
The Whipple Museum of the History of Science holds an extensive collection of scientific instruments, apparatus, models, pictures, prints, photographs, books and other material related to the history of science. It was founded in 1944, when Robert Whipple presented his collection of scientific instruments to the University of Cambridge. The Museum’s collection is designated by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) as being of “national and international importance”. TESS are very pleased to have been selected to supply a number of cases to the Whipple in recent years, including most recently a series of our Evolution Modular cases for displaying some of their most treasured possessions in their Upper Gallery.
The British Music Experience (BME) museum housed within the O2 Bubble (formerly the Millennium Dome) houses an amazing collection of exhibits covering all aspects of British music dating from 1944. Many items are on display and the more precious examples are regularly displayed in TESS Demountable Mono-3d high security cases. The BME recently placed another order for this high security showcase system.
With 2012 being the year of the London Olympics, don’t miss out on the chance to see the Olympic Medals exhibition at the British Museum. The exhibition tells the story of the Olympic and Paralympic medals from the mine to the podium. The very first pressings of the medals are on display in TESS Evolution cases on the first floor.
TESS have been supplying Mono-3d cases to T&WM Services for many years now. The cases are exceptionally robust and are able to shrug off the constant assembly/dismantling and moving around the North of England to the many venues served by the T&WMS. Shipley Art Gallery have just added another suite of Mono-3d cases to the collection which will serve them for many more years to come.
Grace Darling was the heroine of Victorian Britain. She was awarded the RNLI Silver Medal for Gallantry after risking her life in an open boat to help rescue the survivors of the wrecked SS Forfarshire in 1838. The Grace Darling Museum was established in 1938 to commemorate her life. TESS is extremely proud to be the supplier of Evolution showcases to the museum and to be associated with one of life’s great stories.
