Description

  • L'invention concerne la présentation de biens de consommation courante dans des meubles dit linéaires que l'on trouve dans les magasins de distribution. The invention relates to the presentation of consumer goods in linear said furniture found in retail stores.
  • Un mode de présentation très répandu pour les produits les plus divers de faibles dimensions (cosmétiques, colles, articles de papeterie, piles électriques, petite quincaillerie, etc...) est constitué par une carte support sur laquelle le produit est maintenu par une feuille de matière plastique transparent, communément appelée blister. A widespread presentation mode for a wide variety of small-sized products (cosmetics, adhesives, stationery, batteries, small hardware, etc ...) is constituted by a supporting board on which the product is held by a sheet of transparent plastic material, commonly called blister.
  • La carte comporte une perforation supérieure pour être enfilée sur les tringles de support accrochées sur panneau de fond du meuble présentoir. The card comprises an upper punch to be fitted on the support rods hooked onto the bottom panel of the display cabinet.
  • Ce mode de présentation a pour avantages de montrer le produit au consommateur et de constituer un support informatif important. This presentation has the advantage of showing the product to the consumer and to provide an important information support. Cependant, la mise en place sur les tringles de support est relativement incommode et laisse les produits flotter de sorte qu'ils sont rarement présentés correctement en rangées bien alignées. However, the implementation of the support rods is relatively inconvenient and leaves float products so they are rarely properly presented in neat rows. De plus lorsque les différentes rangées de produits sont serrées, la manoeuvre de mise en place ou de dégagement entraîne fréquemment des désordres dans les rangées adjacentes et des chutes indésirées de produits. And when the different rows of products are clamped, the operation of setting up or clearing frequently results in disturbances in the adjacent rows and undesired falls products. Enfin, lorsqu'une rangée de produits se vident, les rangées adjacentes rendent difficiles la visualisation des produits restant au fond de la rangée sans que l'acheteur potentiel ne saisisse le produit pour l'amener vers la face avant du meuble. Finally, when a row of products are emptied, adjacent rows make it difficult the visualization of products remaining in the bottom of the row without the potential purchaser grasps the product to bring it to the front of the unit.
  • L'invention vise à procurer un dispositif de distribution pour produits destinés à être disposé en rangées individuelles accrochées sur le e panneau de fond d'un meuble de magasin qui procure les avantages précités de la présentation sous blister sans en avoir les inconvénients. The invention aims to provide a dispensing device for products to be arranged in individual rows hooked onto the e base panel of a furniture store that provides the aforementioned advantages of the blister pack without the inconveniences.
  • Selon l'invention le dispositif de distribution est caractérisé en ce qu'il est constitué d'un boîtier rigide muni de moyens d'accrochage coopérant avec les moyens d'accrochage prévus sur le panneau de fond du meuble, d'un tiroir susceptible de coulisser par rapport au boîtier à travers la face avant de ce boîtier, le fond du boîtier et du tiroir étant munis d'une fente longitudinale de guidage par un poussoir à lame à ressort porté par le tiroir, des moyens étant prévus pour immobiliser en service le tiroir par rapport au boîtier, le tiroir faisant saillie dans cette position de service par rapport au boîtier, sur une distance correspondant à la profondeur d'un produit de la rangée contenue dans le tiroir. According to the invention the dispensing device is characterized in that it consists of a rigid housing provided with hooking means cooperating with the hooking means on the furniture bottom panel of a drawer capable of slide relative to the housing through the front face of the housing, the housing bottom and the drawer being provided with a longitudinal guide slot by a leaf spring plunger carried by the drawer, means being provided for immobilizing service the drawer relative to the housing, the slide projecting in this service position relative to the housing, a distance corresponding to the depth of a product of the row contained in the drawer.
  • Grâce à cet agencement, on obtient un dispositif modulaire simple, rigidement verrouillé sur le meuble présentoir qui assure une présentation faciale des produits qu'il contient et une homogénéité du plan antérieur de toutes les rangées de produits portée par un même meuble et qui soit très simple et facile à monter, démonter, remplir et vider. With this arrangement, there is obtained a simple modular device rigidly locked to the display cabinet which ensures a facial presentation of the products it contains and homogeneity of the front plane of all the rows of products carried by a same piece of furniture and which is very simple and easy to assemble, disassemble, filling and emptying.
  • D'autres caractéristiques et avantages de l'invention ressortiront de la description ci-après d'un exemple non limitatif de réalisation de l'invention en référence aux dessins annexés sur lesquels : Other features and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following description of a non-limiting embodiment of the invention with reference to the accompanying drawings wherein:

  • La face arrière 3 comporte deux lignes de perforations 9 pour l'engagement des crochets de fixation 10 des réglettes 11 de montage destinées à coopérer avec les nervures d'accrochage du panneau de fond du meuble présentoir (figures 4, 5 et 6). The rear panel 3 comprises two perforation lines 9 for the fastening hooks of engagement 10 of the rods 11 of assembly intended to cooperate with the hooking ribs of the bottom panel of the display cabinet (Figures 4, 5 and 6).
  • Cette disposition permet de régler l'écartement des réglettes 11 en fonction du pas des rainures. This provision sets the spacing of the strips 11 according to the pitch of the grooves.
  • Entre le bas de la face arrière 3 et le bord arrière du fond 2 est ménagée une fente 12 destinée à permettre le passage du fond du tiroir (figures 3 et 6c). Between the bottom of the rear face 3 and the rear edge of the bottom 2 there is a slot 12 for allowing passage of the drawer bottom (Figures 3 and 6C).
  • Les faces latérales 5 et 6 du boîtier 1 comportent près de la face avant des butées 13 coopérant avec les butées arrière du tiroir pour limiter la sortie de celui-ci hors du boîtier. The lateral faces 5 and 6 of the casing 1 comprise near the front stops 13 cooperating with the rear stops of the slide for limiting the output thereof from the housing.
  • En avant de ces butées 13, les faces latérales 4, 6 comportent des gorges verticales 14 pour le montage de la face avant 4. In front of these abutments 13, the side walls 4, 6 comprise vertical grooves 14 for mounting the front face 4.
  • La face avant est une simple plaque dont la hauteur est supérieure à celle des faces latérales 5 et 6 et qui comporte en partie basse une ouverture 15 au gabarit du tiroir et des produits à délivrer. The front face is a single plate of which the height is greater than that of the lateral faces 5 and 6 and which comprises in the lower part an opening 15 to slide the template and the products to be delivered. La partie pleine 16 au-dessus de l'ouverture 15 constitue un support d'information important sur le produit contenu dans le boîtier. Full part 16 over the opening 15 is an important information medium on the product contained in the housing.
  • En partie avant, le fond 2 comporte deux lignes de perforation 17 pour les crochets de fixation 18 d'une plaque prolongatrice rapportée 19 munie d'une fente médiane 7' concordant avec la fente 7 et un trou 20 pour l'encliquetage du tiroir. In front, the base 2 comprises two perforation lines 17 for the fastening hooks 18 of an extender attached plate 19 provided with a median slot 7 'concordant with the slot 7 and a hole 20 for locking the drawer.
  • Avantageusement, comme représenté sur les variantes de réalisation de la figure 1 la plaque 19 peut comporter un support 21 pour une étiquette informative ou un produit test 22, ou un distributeur de prospectus 23. Advantageously, as shown in Figure 1 of alternative embodiments the plate 19 may comprise a support 21 for an informative label, or a test product 22, or 23 prospectus dispenser.
  • Sur la figure 2 on a représenté le tiroir 24 en cours d'assemblage avec le boîtier 1. In Figure 2 the slide 24 during assembly is shown with the housing 1.
  • Le tiroir 24 est un conteneur en forme de parallélépipède rectangle de largeur inférieure à celle du boîtier 1 ouvert à son extrémité arrière et dont le fond est muni d'une fente 25 symétrique de la fente 7, 7' du boîtier 1. The tray 24 is a container shaped width rectangular parallelepiped smaller than the housing 1 open at its rear end and whose bottom is provided with a symmetrical slot 25 of the slot 7, 7 'of the housing 1.
  • L'extrémité arrière des faces latérales du tiroir comportent des ailes 26 qui ont pour double fonction de guider latéralement le tiroir dans son mouvement de coulissement dans le boîtier 1 et de coopérer avec les butées 13 dudit boîtier pour empêcher de le tirer hors du boîtier. The rear end of the side faces of the slide comprise wings 26 which have the dual function to laterally guide the tray in its sliding movement in the housing 1 and cooperate with the stops 13 of said housing to prevent pull out of the housing.
  • Le fond du tiroir 25 se prolonge vers l'arrière au-delà des ailes 26 sous forme de deux pattes 27 destinées à traverser la fente 12 du boîtier 1 (figure 3) pour verrouiller l'ensemble sur le panneau de fond du meuble présentoir (figure 6c). The bottom of the drawer 25 is extended rearwardly beyond the wings 26 in the form of two tabs 27 intended to pass through the slot 12 of the housing 1 (Figure 3) to lock the assembly onto the bottom panel of the display cabinet ( Figure 6c).
