Description

  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to special purpose work desks and, more particularly, to desks adapted to computers and ancillary equipment.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0002]
    Computers have become associated with an increasing number of interconnected ancillary devices, much of which is most conveniently used if within easy reach of a user sitting at a work desk. This has resulted in an ever increasing array of cables in addition to the traditional screen, mouse and keyboard. Although mouse and keyboard increasingly are connected by wireless, the connection of various ancillary devices to the computer, such as telephone, internet cable connections, cameras, printers etc. continues to ensure an unsightly, dust collecting mess of cables over parts of the desk top.
  • [0003]
    Some computer desks are provided with a cable hole, usually in the corner of the desk, but this still requires a mess of cabling across the desk from dispersed devices to the cable hole. Another approach has been to provide a trap-door in the desk surface giving access to a cable connection well, but this arrangement has the disadvantage that at least the trap-door portion of the desk and an area around it must be cleared whenever some rearrangement of the cables or installation of another device is required.
  • [0004]
    It is an object of the present invention to address or at least ameliorate some of the above disadvantages.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INVENTION

  • [0028]
    FIG. 5 shows a plan view and sectioned side view of a cable retaining strip at a rear edge of a moveable portion of the desktop of FIGS. 1 to 4.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • [0029]
    The desk assembly of the present invention is adapted for the orderly arrangement and stowage of cables of computer and other electronic equipment in use on the desk, and for ease of access to connections of these cables without a need to disturb the equipment or other materials on the desk top.
  • [0030]
    With reference to FIGS. 1 to 4, a desk assembly 10 comprises a desktop working surface 12 divided into a fixed rear ledge portion 14 and a moveable front portion 16. A subsurface 18 (shown by cross-hatching in FIG. 3) is supported on legs 20.
  • [0031]
    Fixed rear ledge portion 14 is fixed to a rear edge 22 of sub-surf ace 18 while moveable portion 16 is slideably attached to the sides 24 of sub-surface 18. When in the first closed position shown in FIG. 2A, a gap 19 is maintained between the rear edge of moveable portion 16 and the front edge of fixed rear ledge portion 14.
  • [0032]
    The travel of moveable portion 16 between its closed position shown in FIG. 2A and its open position shown in FIG. 2B, is controlled by stops 23. Gap 19 may also be controlled by stops 40 which, in at least one form of the invention, are adjustable. Moveable portion 16 is retained in its closed position by catches 25 accessible underneath and adjacent the front edge of portion 16.
  • [0033]
    A connection well 26 is provided below sub-surface 18 and is accessible through opening 21 when moveable portion 16 is in the position of FIG. 2B. Located in connection well 26 are a number of outlets and sockets adapted to provide power and service a range of connections for computer and associated devices, as well as communication devices. Thus for example, well 26 may contain a power board 28 with multiple mains power sockets, a land line telephone socket 30, one or more USB ports 32, and internet and local area network (LAN) cable connection.
  • [0034]
    With reference to FIG. 5, the trailing or rear edge 52 of moveable portion 16 is provided with an array of cable retaining clips 54. Clips 54 may comprise a flexible strip 46 of material inserted into a groove 58 along a portion of rear edge 52 coextensive with cable connection well 26. Strip 56 is provided with a plurality of apertures 48 into which cables 60 may be inserted. By this means the length of cable between a desk top device and the trailing edge 52 remains undisturbed during opening and closing of moveable portion 16.
  • [0035]
    Cables from outlets or sockets provided in well 26 which require connection to wall outlets or to a computer cabinet located under desk 10 may be fed through holes 31. Alternatively cabling could be passed into and through suitable apertures (not shown) provided in the rear legs of desk 10.
  • [0036]
    Mounted to the underside of sub-surface 18 are one or more equipment drawers 34. Equipment drawers 34 are provided with drop-down front panels 36 which are released from a normally closed position by catches 38. Equipment such as a keyboard 40 can be located in a drawer 34 and stowed out of the way when not in user as shown in FIG. 2B. The drop-down front panel is arranged so that when in the open position as shown in FIG. 2A, the inner surface of the front panel forms an extension of the drawer bottom thereby allowing equipment, such as keyboard 40 to be slid forward for use.
  • [0037]
    Cabling for keyboard 40 or other electrically connected equipment located in a drawer, may be passed through suitable apertures 42 in the front wall 44 of well 26 and connected to the appropriate outlet or socket, or alternatively, may be passed out of the well 26 through one of holes 31.
  • [0038]
    My cables of computer or other cable connected equipment supported on the moveable portion 16 of desktop 12 passes through gap 19 into well 26. Thus no cabling of any of the equipment on the desktop or in the drawers of desk 10 needs to pass over any edge of the desk. Moreover, only a short length of cable of each item of equipment on the desk top, sufficient to reach gap 19 is visible on the desktop and the normal plethora of power supply cables hanging off a computer desk is reduced to a single cable depending from one of holes 31 in the bottom of well 26.
  • [0039]
    When access to cable connections is required, none of the equipment or other material on the desktop needs to be moved. The retaining catches 25 are released and the moveable portion 16 pulled forward to reveal the well 26 and provide access to the connections in the well.
  • [0040]
    The above describes only some embodiments of the present invention and modifications, obvious to those skilled in the art, can be made thereto without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention.
