Description

The present invention relates to a new device, allowing it to
  only the combination of the functions of maximum development, transport, and storage, the most diverse products, which are called upon;
  The range of application fields of this invention is extremely broad; that is to say, as non-exhaustive examples, the replacement of shelves and shelves used in supermarkets and shops, the replacement of the various supports, used in hostels, restaurants, libraries, as well as in the various sites storage or archiving.
  This device makes it possible to avoid the multiplication of the number of supports: at least three are conventionally necessary, to ensure the presentation, transport and storage functionalities of the products. As part of this device, a single support simultaneously performs these three functions. This results in a clear improvement in the management of space and time.
  In addition, this device makes it possible to reduce the number and the dimensions of the axes and / or surfaces constituting a conventional support, thanks to an original design of its geometry, thus improving the accessibility of the products to the eye and the hand. The constraining continuity of the walls constituted by the traditional linear is thus broken. The available space for the consumers is perforated rush, thus fluidified, clarified, and thus, the range of the number of products presented, is considerably enlarged. .
  Finally, if necessary, the deformability, and / or contractility, elements, gw constitute the support, allows the latter to occupy in space, a volume reduced to a bare minimum, adapted to its different degrees of filling.
  The main characteristics of this support, in a non-exhaustive way, are on the one hand the original conception of its geometry, namely: the conjugation adaitée with the request, obliquités, lengths and respective values of surfaces, axes and angles, which constitute it, allowing a minimum coverage of the surfaces of exposed products, compatible with their perfect setting on the support.
  2881631 2 In total, the medium will occupy in space, a reduced volume at a minimum neat spn compatible with its functionalities, adaptable to the constraints of the space it will be brought to occupy and its various degrees of filling.
  The support, according to the invention, consists of a single surface.This single surface may have, if necessary, one or more plies, thus dividing this single surface into two intersecting surfaces, or, more. The axis of the plication may be rectilinear and vertical. In addition, the anterior edges of its or its lateral surfaces may be vertical, rectilinear, helicoidal, parallel, or other. This single surface, if necessary, may also be embodied by a single and only axis 10, broken, curved, or other, with all the advantages, which result from it, and which we will see, later, in the description. The support can also be constituted by a mixed combination; axes / surfaces. In addition, the support may be partially or completely retractable and / or deformable. The support may consist of uninterrupted serialization of one or more variants of unitary supports.
  We will now expose different models, illustrated by figures, highlighting the possibility of conjugating to infinity, the different elements constituting the support, according to the constraints imposed by the request, and by the perfect calibration of the presented products.
  First chapter: description of the first model:
  This first model is illustrated in Figures 1 to 7. It is intended in this example to present, transport, store parallelepiped shaped products. The purpose of the specific geometry of this first model of media will be best illustrated, (Figure 4), by the description of the dynamics of the establishment of a most extreme simplicity, products, which are presented. Let's go back to the geometry of the support: figure 1,1e triangle, 1/2/3, constitutes the floor of the support.It is characterized by a double obliqueness, of its orientation; First obliquity: it is oblique of before and back: the front edge (1/2) of the floor, is in a plane higher than that of the point, (3), the most steep point of the floor point of convergence of the two other sides, (1/3) and (2/3) of this triangle constituting the floor of the support. Thus, the product to be presented on the support, once placed on its floor by its lower surface, must slide, from top to bottom, from front to rear, for initially, come 2881631 3 to finish his race, abutting against, the posterior plane, right, (3/4/5/1). In this example: this right posterior plane has a tetrahedron shape, vertical, plane, its edges, lower and upper, being parallel, and of length equal to the lower right-side edge (1/3), of the floor.I1 is in continuity with the floor, at the level of the fold (1/3) .The first step of the wedging of the products presented, has just been crossed. Second obliquity of this floor of the support, the front edge of the floor of the support, (1/2) is, moreover, in this example, oblique from right to left, and from top to bottom: Thus, the product to be presented,, will necessarily slip for the second time, but in this second stage, from the right towards the left, from top to bottom, to come again butter, against a second plane, namely the plane, lateral, posterior left (3/4/6/2); At the end of this double rocker forced from its center of gravity, the product presented will finally be perfectly wedged in its support, characterized, in this example, by the double obliqui The following products will also be stacked on the first, according to the same technique, within the limit of the height of the two lateral planes. The interests of this double obliquity of the floor of the support are multiple: it involves a double rocker forced center of gravity of the products presented on the support which authorizes the latter to be constituted by only two or three surfaces, while ensuring the perfect rigging of the products presented there. As a result, in addition to reducing their number, the extent of these surfaces constituting the support is also considerably reduced. In total we obtain maximum open support on the outside, ensuring a maximum development of the products presented there, ergonomics also maximum, an occupation of the available volumes, minimal, and finally interfaces of contact, products / support , reduced to their strict minimum, in number (three at the most), and in surfaces. Moreover, the extraction of a product, assures to the underlings, a perfect immovability, because of their perfect rigging, individual. Thus, the extraction. a product will never be followed by the flip-flop that is harmful to the other underpinnings.This double rocker of the floor ensures moreover a surface of the projections on the ground of the support empty or in charge, whatever its degree of filling, reduced to a strict minimum .Enfuz, systems known in themselves, give the support additional potentialities.They are represented on the single figure Na 2, page 1/6, by the points, f, l, and, r.The point, f, materializes the allocation to the support of the function of fixing, articulating the support on one or more third elements. The point, r, materializes the allocation to the support of the functions of retraction, and, of contractility, of a or several elements, which constitute it.The point, the materializes strips, elastic or not, nets or other systems, articulated with the support, which allow to animate the products presented on the support, and, thus, to constitute a unique couple, (products presented / support) to be transported, and, stored, in any position in space.Therefore, the couple support / products, is only one entity.This entity can be designed in the site of manufacture of products .This same entity will go through without any modification of the configuration of the support / products pair, the following stages, of transport, of storage, and of presentation of the products, except, during this last stage, for the exhibition pioduits, the release of the support, securing systems, products, the support, (point, 1, in Figure 2, page, 1/6), known in themselves, opening the maximum accessibility of products in the user's hand. The once empty support, in its non-disposable variant, can thus be reused again, on the same site of manufacture of the products, to form a new pair, support / products, and so on. Savings, in terms of cost manufacturing, handling, and management of space and time, consistent with improved ergonomics, and a maximum development of the products presented for sale are demonstrated.
  First chapter: continued. Description of variants of this first model: First variant: the deformable variant.
  Each of the support planes can be made from a deformable material, such as a fishing net, for example. Inking points, respectively subject to specific force and orientation pulls, give this deformable support, its specific geometry, adapted to the request. Illustration, in Figure nl, page 1/6, by arrows.Inversely, the removal of these points of traction, allows to fold this support and, in its non-disposable variant, to store it empty, or retransport to the manufacturing site of the products, in a space reduced to a bare minimum.
  Second variant: the helical variant, which is illustrated on pages 4/6 and 5/6, FIGS. 6 and 7. The anterior stop of the two lateral planes, described in this case, an ascending helical path 2881631 from the floor , with axis of rotation the central axis, vertical and rectilinear (3/4) .De front, the external envelope of the support, takes the aspect of a tendril, which can be a requirement of the demand. , b, presented on this model of support, are thus deployed from the bottom to the top, from b 1 to b3, from the left to the right, seen from the front. Viewed from the top, the outer envelope of these boxes exposed on the support, represents schematically, the circular outline of a fan deployed.In this case, the surface of the projection on the ground of the support, will be roughly circular, and no longer , rectangular or square.
  In other embodiments, the axis of the support, 1/4, like the edges of the side edges, may have a point of origin, and trajectories, all other, depending on the requirements of the application, compatible with the perfect wedging products.
  Finally, the support can consist of a single broken line, its real or virtual trajectories, drawing the different planes of the support, with a final functional result identical to that of the previously described models, but also having additional advantages, to, additional savings: for example: reducing costs in manufacturing, maintenance (no cleaning of solid surfaces), handling (reducing weight of supports), improvements in visual ergonomics, and, locomotor (gripping), for the consumer.
  In total, the schematic external envelope of the supports, and the geometry of its projection on the ground, as well as their respective dimensions, whatever their degree of filling, may be the most diverse.
  We now turn to a second chapter: namely the description of a second model and its variants, which is not exhaustive; illustrations, page 6/6, figures 8 to 12.
  This second model, like the first support, consists of a single surface, including a floor, also characterized by a double obliqueness of its orientation in space.
  However, it comprises only one secant fold, the geometry of its path, in this non-exhaustive example, determines only two bearing surfaces, (instead of three), constituting the support.
  Because of this, the number of contact interfaces, support / products pre-inserted, transported, stored, is only two, instead of three. In this case, the support will be even more open on the outside, with all the additional benefits, which flow from it, and, which have been previously described.
  The floor, (127), of this second model, is illustrated by the freezing res, n 8 to 10, page 6 / 6. Its leading edge in this non-exhaustive example, to simplify the understanding of the presentation, is, always seen from the front, straight, oblique from right to left, and from top to bottom. (segment, 1/2, in the figures, page 6/6) On the other hand, the postero-inferior edge of the floor, passes through the most sloping point of the latter, (point 7), and is characterized by an original trajectory which allows the support to consist of only two bearing surfaces, instead of three, with all the advantages, previously exposed, which result from a reduction (number and extent of the bearing surfaces, which constitute it. This posterior edge of the floor (127), always presents in front view, a rectilinear right segment, ei, a left segment, curvilinear.In total, the floor of this example, 1E1 2, passes through the three geometric points required, 1 , 7, and, 2, which provide an orientation in space, doubly oblique.
  In this model n 2, still, non-exhaustive, the single surface which constitutes the support, comprises only one bearing surface, (both posterior and lateral), instead of two, as, in the first model .
  This single, posterior and lateral plane is characterized, in this non-exhaustive example, by a stop, anterior straight, rectilinear, vertical (1/5). Then by a second previous stop, left that one, (2/6), parallel to the first, therefore vertical, rectilinear, and of height equal to the first. The upper edge (5/6) of this posterolateral bearing surface is symmetrical to the single secant fold (1/7/2) of the single surface constituting the support.It is parallel to the latter, equal length, and, located in the same vertical planes.
  After having defined the characteristics of this second model, we will now describe those of the products, which will be presented, transported and stored there.
  2881631 7 The interest of this second example is to show the limitless adaptability, of the geometries of the support, to the requirements of the request, compatible with its maximum utilitarian functionalities.
  In this model, the products to be presented have an original geometry; their outline, when placed on a horizontal plane, (8) is, illustrated, page 6/6, FIGS. 9 and 10, (8) .The right front and back edges of the products to be presented, are in this case rectilinear , on the other hand, the left lateral edge of these products, is arciform, connecting the left distal ends, of the two edges, anterior and posterior rights, of the products presented. placed on the floor (127) of its support, the surface of the projection (9) (of the product presented), on the ground, therefore on a horizontal plane, presents a clear reduction of the measurements of the latter, compared with those of those previously described.Furthermore, still in this same logic, the largest diameter (19) of this surface, having benefited from the double obliquity of the floor of the support on which the product has been presented, projected on a horizontal plane, is of this made of very much lower length, to that (18), of the projection of the product presented, flat on a horizontal plane.Finally, to finish this illustration of this new improvement of management, among others, of the space, in the figures (8), ( 9), and (10), we find that the surface, seen from the front, of the floor (127) is, in addition, still inferior to that occupied by the underside (9), of the product presented therein. The same is true for a similarly large reduction in the ground projection, the largest diameter (12), of its own surface. These drawings illustrate the additional possibilities provided by this second model, consisting of a unique surface, and, of a single secant fold (with specific geometry), in the management of the space, the development of the products presented, the ergonomics, the reduction of the costs.
  Another variant of this model number two: the helical variant: FIG. 1 is a view from above of the helical variant of this second model loaded with 4 products (91 to 93).
  Other helicoidal variants: helicoidal variants, of which, the point of origin of the anterior edges of the posterior plane, may not necessarily be the 30 points (1 and 2), and the trajectory of the latter, not necessarily rectilinear and / or 2881631 8 vertical, adapted to the request, in compatibility of course, with the unavoidable constraints previously exposed.
  Another variant of this model number two: the one consisting of a single broken line.
  Another variant of this model number two is that consisting of a serial connection, without interruption, of one or more variants, of unitary supports.
  Another variant of this model number two: the retractable, unfeasible variant.
  In total, the schematic external envelope of the supports, and the geometry of its projection on the ground, as well as their respective dimensions, whatever their degree of filling, can be the most diverse.
