Description

SHEET ARTICLE DISPENSER The present invention relates to a dispenser of sheet articles and especially articles of sheet plastic material such as aprons, bags, gloves etc.

At present such articles are conventionally disposed from flat packs and such an arrangement can be inconvenient and unsightly.

The present invention seeks to overcome or reduce this problem.

According to a first aspect of the invention there is provided a cabinet for housing sheet articles in a continuous roll form and for dispensing them separately from an outlet thereof wherein the back of the cabinet is arranged to be secured to a vertical wall and the bottom of the cabinet is arranged to be inclined upwardly from said wall.

Preferably the bottom of the cabinet extends at 72" to 87" relative to the wall, more preferably at 83" to 85" thereto, and most preferably at substantially 84 .

According to a second aspect of the present invention there is provided a method of dispensing gloves of thin material, e.g. rubber or plastics material, comprising inserting into a dispensing cabinet a continuous roll formed of a plurality of said gloves secured to each other by means of lines of separation and dispensing said gloves from an outlet of the cabinet individually or in pairs.

Preferred embodiments of the present invention will now be described, by way of example only, with reference to the accompanying drawings, of which: Fig. 1 is a side view of a cabinet in accordance with a first embodiment of the present invention; Figs.2 and 3 are front and rear views respectively of the cabinet of Fig.1; and Fig.3 is a side view of a modified cabinet.

Referring now to the drawings, a cabinet 10 comprises front 11, side 12,13, rear 14 and bottom 16 walls of sheet metal material. Pivotally secured to the top of rear wall 14 is a lid 18, also conveniently of sheet metal material. Lid 18 is bent about a line 19 about two thirds of the way along its width. This serves to enable the cabinet 10 to house a roll 20 without waste of space.

The rear wall 14 incorporates dimple formations 24 for attaching to a vertical building wall therebehind, and further dimple formations 25 for cushioning the cabinet and for ensuring that the cabinet is mounted substantially vertical in use.

Roll 20 is preferably of plastics sheet material formed into a plurality of articles secured to each other by lines of perforation or other weakening. The articles may be plastic bags, aprons, gloves etc.

The side walls 12,13 incorporate elongate openings 42 to enable the size of the roll to be viewed without opening the cabinet. If necessary the cabinet can be refilled by opening lid 18.

In use a roll 20 is inserted in dispenser cabinet 10 with a short free end projecting from a slot formed between the front edge of lid 18 and a top lip 28 of front wall 11. The material of the roll passes over the lip 28 before separation of the next item. The lip 28 smoothes the flow of material and prevents snagging of apertured parts etc of the articles as they are dispensed. The lip also provides a stiffening edge to provide sufficient resistence to allow snatch ripping to separate an item from the roll. In the absence of the roll material, the front edge of the lid 18 makes contact with lip 28, so that, when the roll material is present, the edges of the slot formed provide a local smoothing and braking action to facilitate satisfactory dispensing.

It has been found that to ensure proper and even dispensing of the roll, the angle of bottom wall 16 should be at an angle of 30 to 18 to the horizontal preferably 5 to 7" and most preferably substantially 6". In this way the roll is maintained at the ideal position as it becomes smaller with use and jamming is prevented.

The dispenser 10 may be used in various applications, e.g. medical, food handling, and in filling stations.

Various modifications can be made to the above described embodiment. For example the cabinet 10 may be wholly or partly of plastic material if desired, lid 18 may have a central pivot along line 19. Alternatively a fixed top wall may be provided and the whole or part of the front wall 11 may pivot open to permit a fresh roll 20 to be installed.

In a modified cabinet 10', Fig.4, the rear wall 14 has hooks 34 at its ends to enable the cabinet to be hung on a suitable support. Such a cabinet is especially suitable for use in dispensing gloves on filling station forecourts to prevent customer's hands coming into contact with fuel.
