P 1929. s. GUIGNON, JR 1,727,032

SHELF Filed Dec. 5, 1927 INVENTOR ATTORN EY Patented Sept. 3, 1929.

warren STATES EMILE S. GUIGNON, JR., OF KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI.

SHELF.

Application filed December My invention relates to shelves and more particularly to a shelf for supporting electric appliances such as fans, heaters, toasters and like devices upon a wall or other vertical mem her and has for its principal object to provide a shelf of unitary construction having contained plug receiving receptacles for plugging in electric appliances and means for pro.- tecting the wall from contact with the appliances placed upon the shelf.

In accomplishing these and other objects of the invention I have provided improved details of structure, the preferred forms of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a shelf constructed according to my invention.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the rear or wall side of the shelf.

Fig. 3 is a vertical cross sectional view through the shelf illustrating its attachment to a wall.

Referring more in detail to the drawings:

1 designates the ledge member of the shelf,

' which is preferably constructed of a single sheet of metal, and comprises a horizontal article supporting portion 2, a guard rail portion 3 extending vertically along the rear edge of the portion 2 and a horizontal flange 4: extending rearwardly from the top edge of the guard rail for spacing the rail from the wall, providing a space 5 for receiving plug receptacle connectors 6. hereinafter described.

The sides and front edges 7 of the ledge member are preferably provided with depending flanges 8 to provide for stiffening and strengthening the shelf as well as to enhance its appearance and provide a smooth rounded edge therefor.

In order to support and brace the ledge,

from a wall in horizontal alignmenttherewith the shelf is provided adjacent its ends with downwardly projecting brackets 9 and 10, each comprising a vertical strap member 11 for engagement with the wall and a brace member 12 extending outwardly and angularly from the lower end of the vertical member to the forward edge of the ledge 1; the brace member having an angularly bent end 13 by which it is secured to the vertical member by welding or the like. The bracket members thus constructed are provided with forwardly bent ends 14 and 15 respectively, which are welded to the ledge portion to secure the brackets thereto and provide a single unitary supporting member.

5, 1927. Serial no. 237,777.

The vertical members are provided with keyhole slots 16 about midway of their length so that the shelf may be hooked over the heads of screws or the like 17 fastened in the wall so that the shelf may be removably supported in functional position. Should it be desirable to permanently attach the shelf, the members 11 and 12 are provided at their juncture with screw receiving apertures 18 so that when screws are inserted therein and driven into the wall, the shelf cannot be slid upwardly to remove the heads of the screws 17 from the restricted portions of the slots.

Receivable in the space formed between the guard rail and the wall and preferably welded to the rail portion is a plug receptacle box 19 having a plurality of plug receptacle members 6 which project forward through openings 20 in the guard rail, the receptacles being connected with an extension cord 21 having a plugconnector 22 receivable in a wall plug or the like (not shown) to furnish an electric current supply for the receptacles. The flange 4 preferably extends beyond the receptacle box as at 23 so that the rear wall of the box 19 is slightly spaced from the wall as a precautionary measure to prevent short circuits which may occur in the box from injuring the wall.

It is apparent that the guard rail and flange not only serve as an enclosure for the box 19 but also constitute a truss member for preventing sagging of the shelf between the brackets when supporting its load.

The shelf may be provided with two or more brackets depending within its length and the brackets are preferably positioned substantially sixteen inches on centersto conform to the standard spacing of wall studding so that the brackets may be located directly over the studding to provide solid support for the screws by which the shelf is fixed to the wall; however, this spacing is not essential.

In. using the device constructed as described. the screws 17 are secured in the wall about the height at which it is desired to mount the shelf and at the proper distance apart to conform with the spacing of the brackets. The shelf is then hooked over the heads of the screws and slid downwardly so that the screws are received in the narrow portion of the slots; the plug 22 is then insorted in a convenient light socket or wall receptacle to furnish current supply to the receptacle 20. The electrical appliances may shelf including an article supporting ledge having a guard rail at its rear edge and a flange on the guard rail extending oppositely of the ledge to form a space between the rail and a supporting Wall, and a housing mem- 1 her mounted in said space.

2. A shelf including a horizontal article supporting ledge, a vertical guard rail on the rear of the ledge, a horizontal flange on and extending rearwardly from the upper edge of the rail, and a connector housing mounted on the shelf within the space back of the rail and beneath the-flange.

3. A shelf including a horizontal article supporting ledge,a Vertical guard rail on the rear of the ledge having plug connector openings therethrough, a horizontal flange on and extending rearWardly from the upper edge of the flange, and a connector housing mounted on the shelf Within the space back of the rail and beneath the flange.

4. In combination with brackets, each comprising a flat vertical 'Wall member and a for- Wardly and upwardly inclined brace terminating at different elevations, a shelf including a loWer horizontal article supporting ledge engaging the brace members, a vertical .rail memberat the rear of the ledge and a rearwardly directed horizontal flange at the top of the rail member engaging the bracket Wall members andspacing the rail from said members to form a housing space back of said rail, and a plug connector housing mounted on said rail and contained Within said space, said rail having plug connector openings above the ledge.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
