    Urrghhh this post gives me shivers.
    I put shatter-proof sheeting on my shelves and I'm considering putting some acrylic sheeting under them for extra security.
    This is my worst nightmare, sorry it happened to you, man =/

    Maronn (Il y a 5 ans) #1880903(...) Though I thought about maybe replace the glass with plastic...(...)That's a good idea, replacing the glass shelves with 5mm (or more) acrylic sheets should work, a friend of mineVoir le spoilerCacher le spoiler added acrylic sheets cut to size to increase the number of shelves in his Detolf and managed to fit about 24 1/18 die-cast cars inside the modded (4 more acrylic shelves) Detolf, without the extra shelves would only fit about 12 cars.

    just remember to stick with tempered glass, your original detolf is also tempered glass, but it has to be specially cut otherwise it shatters like you found out. Tempered will be stronger than plate glass. A sheet just breaking apart like that is quite rare unless there was a defect to start with... again, that's pretty rare, You have to imagine the number of detolfs out there, on top of the fact that tempered glass is used EVERYWHERE these days. A little scratch or chip though can disrupt the surface enough to shatter, because of the tension the way the glass is made.

    Maronn (Il y a 5 ans) #1880903Don't worry, groaning and making noises is pretty normal for Detolfs! They all do it. :) Mine made a very loud, kind of...like something heavy fell on the floor-sound at first and some hours later finally broke through with an even louder sound.^^" Sorry it's very hard to describe since I never heard something like that before.
    Thanks a lot! Yeah, actually all the fragments were pretty close together, but since all the figures had to be fished out and some of them lied around, torso and lower body part separated, it was quite a mess at the end.^^"
    Ha, true! Thank you for mentioning this! Though I thought about maybe replace the glass with plastic...but coated glass sounds good as well! As soon as there is more time I will ask a glass shop for their prices...

    iced_wine (Il y a 5 ans) #1880030oh god...worst nightmare come true....i have only had mine for half a year, and it's the first detolf i own...it's been groaning and making noises for a couple of months now, i hope it holds up....

    lurkingknight (Il y a 5 ans) #1880275Really tragic that the glass let go. It shouldn't splinter all the fragments should just be granules that you can vacuum up. For those curious out your own detolf glass: en.wikipedia.or...
    The good news is that you can just go to any glass shop to have it replaced, and you might even be able to get the coated stuff so it doesn't fall apart, it will just hold together in a spiderweb and hopefully not collapse... but that stuff could be quite expensive. Never know till you call a glass shop.

    Since answering all of you took so much space I put the wall of text in the spoiler tag again.^^" Sorry about that.Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerangelbott (Il y a 5 ans) #1879158.....Hahaha yeah my jaw also dropped when I saw the mess! ^^" Hmm well it should be strong enough to take up to 6 kg and i loaded it with about 1400g...so it should have been strong enough for it but seems like something went horribly wrong^^". Hahaha I will search for a figure doctor right now! XD I will probably be sent to the mental home for that... XD

    shinhawk (Il y a 5 ans) #1879159...Sounds also very scary how you installed your klingsbo! ^^" Oh, that's good to know! Did not know that this rarely happens with Detolfs! But yeah, Klingsbos also seem a bit sturdier with their metal frame (I also own one. :3) and they look quite elegant so I will probably get rid of my Detolf and get a Klingsbo instead! Thanks for sharing this! :3

    Seravy (Il y a 5 ans) #1879185True, glass is quite fragile. But since I am a sucker for glass-objects and don't like wooden furniture too much, it seemed like the only logical solution for displaying my figures. Though I would certainly not buy a Detolf again. Indeed, IKEA is not the best quality, especially if it comes to wooden furniture since they use chipboards instead of sturdy wood like you would buy from a carpenter. A big plus for IKEA is the price though, since most furniture is way more expensive. (And most of the times the quality is not really that better.^^") It certainly would be better to invest your money in something that's got a very good quality and I can't speak for everyone but the reason why I mostly buy IKEA furniture is because it is quite cheap and since my home right now is only temporary as long as I am studying in Germany it is not really worth the effort and money to get high quality furniture.^^" But yeah, glass is not as safe as wood, but since things like randomly shattering glass only happen very rarely it is thankfully not that risky to display your figures on glass. I guess the people who display figures on glass just love to live dangerously. XD (Btw. since I am a very clumsy person, I and my bf already put the cabinets in positions where I won't knock them over or accidently hit them etc. XD) Hmmmm well there are those acrylic cabinets: www.google.de/i... but they probably aren't that easy to get for some countries.

    Ruttsu (Il y a 5 ans) #1879211... Ohh I see! Thank you again!! It's always nice to learn some new things about this hobby, I really thought it would be quite hard to work on translucent material. Maybe some scratches can be removed from the Drrr bases if I only work on the translucent parts and just leave the parts with the graphics like they are now.

    Strife212 (Il y a 5 ans) #1879260Suddenly scared for my DDs ;w;
    DD bases weigh a ton.

    Ohhh they really look heavy (but very awesome!!) Though as long as they are not surpassing the 6kg it should probably be fine! >_<

    Riesz (Il y a 5 ans) #1879640Wow I'm so sorry such a catastrophe happened to you and your collection!
    Hopefully it was just a defective Detolf and others don't have the same issue. :(
    My grandma has been using a glass shelf curio cabinet for 60 yrs and never had a problem, so I dunno if glass is made differently now or what happened. I felt safe about using glass shelves because of my grandma's display curios but now I'm worried.
    Thank you. >///< That's what I hope too! Some users already mentioned that this happened before but as Shinhawk said it seems pretty uncommon. It is probably just a production fault or something like that in my case, since my other cabinets never had any problems (and they are way older than my Detolf). Glass can be quite strong but it's pretty fragile too, but I would say most of the time nothing happens. So please don't be too scared just because something bad happened to me. >_< You know, my TV table and even my working table at my parents are mostly made of glass and nothing ever happened to them in all those years. But if you want to be completely safe, wood is probably the better choice.

    NiponSan (Il y a 5 ans) #1879668Seeing this article makes me feel that i should seriously consider when displaying my figures in the detolf :/ Hmm yeah it seems like something like this rarely happens (as others already said) But if you think about all the users who use Detolfs and never had any problems I guess buying a Detolf is quite safe (Though I will stay away from that wicked thing in the future! >_<). But maye a different cabinet is a bit safer since Detolfs really are pretty flimsy in comparison to other glass cabinets.

    Plume (Il y a 5 ans) #1879687.... Thank you very much! >_< I only cut myself once (which is a excellent result for someone as clumsy as me! XD) But yeah that would be awful, thankfully it did not happen.

    Wow. That's just... wow. Nightmare indeed.

    Take care when you handle the figures now, and when you clean the broken glass. You don't want any of those tiny pieces getting under your skin...
