Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention is related to the art of packaging and bailing, more particularly to a package that holds and exhibits products in a point of sale, aimed to end users. More specifically, this invention refers to a self-standing exhibiting and dispensing package that allows for transportation of the product therein to its point of sale; said self-standing package is characterized by its ability to hold and exhibit its product at points of sale, and end consumers may take said product at the time of purchase.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Currently most products are individually packaged so they can reach end users. However, distribution and marketing of these products require bigger packages such as boxes or containers carrying a number of such individually packaged products in order to be transported and taken to points of sale for end users, where they are then unpackaged and placed on shelves or exhibitors designed for such purpose. Furthermore, they make such products appealing for end users.
  • Otherwise, such as in shopping malls and self service stores, individually packaged products are usually set in islands, placed at various levels and piled on the floor, pallet, stand, box or similar devices.
  • Accordingly, the constant need to have safer, trust worthier packages that allow for protection of such products being transported towards end users, as well as the growing need to have bigger packages or bales that allow on one hand to hold the product, and exhibit said product at points of sale on the other hand, where they may be displayed to end users, has generated the development of new packages that strive to fulfill these needs and avoid usage of or additional investment on acquisition of shelves and exhibitors.
  • Prior art includes some patents that protect and disclose packaging structures that satisfy the afore mentioned needs, such as U.S. Pat. No. 5,251,753 granted to Pigott et al. on Oct. 12, 1993, which refers to a combined product transporting and exhibiting unit, including a plurality of product containing trays vertically set with divisions vertically supported that keep a space between product containers. Under these shipping conditions, the bottom tray is housed and received within a flange that rests on a conventional shipping pallet. Each tray is provided with an individual angulated support member between an adjacent vertically spaced pair of trays. A beam on each corner extends the entire height of the unit providing additional structural support during shipping only. However, as may be disclosed and seen in the Figures hereof, each tray or plate contains products that in turn support the next upper tray or plate and so on, hence making it necessary for the products on said next upper tray or plate to be organized, then withdrawn in order to have access to products in the next lower tray, and so on, until products such packaged and exhibited in said unit is finished.
  • The beams on each corner are only used during shipping, and upon arrival to their final destination at points of sale they are removed, providing structural support for product protection during shipping only.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,161,692 granted to Stanley E. Knierin on Nov. 10, 1992 refers to a container device with open faces, which includes a cover member with an inner division wall that forms cavities that receive corner beams having a lower outer wall in order to tighten and hold the corners of a household appliance. Such cover and corner beams may be used separately at will. This type of structure is designed to ship products only, more specifically devices of larger dimensions such as household appliances, in order to protect and stabilize such devices during their transportation, not for their exhibition at points of sale.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 4,638,941 granted to Robert L. Watson on Jan. 27, 1987 refers to a cardboard container for shipping and exhibiting products, comprising of a plurality of product support trays vertically set one on top of the other, where the product on the lower tray supports. the next upper product containing tray.
  • Other such patents refer to structures usually comprising trays or containers vertically set and with corner beams as structural elements that protect the products, during their shipping only. In all of them, products on such trays or containers support the next upper product loaded trays.
  • Said corner beams or corner pieces as reinforcing structural elements protecting the products on the above described structures, are made of compressed cardboard. However, such compressed cardboard beams have always been used as packaging material and not as exhibitors.
  • Accordingly, and including the above referenced and cited patents of the prior art, to this date there is not one structure that allows packaging and exhibiting of products in a plurality of trays, where said products do not have to support the next upper tray, therefore allowing placement of such products on different levels without affecting the structure's stability.
  • OBJECTIVES OF THE INVENTION
  • Making a self-standing exhibiting package that allows vertical placement of trays at multiple levels where various products may be placed and contained for their transportation and exhibition, and which allows for disposition of such products on said various levels and on any of their sides is the main objective of this foregoing invention.
  • Another objective of this invention is to make a self-standing exhibiting package that will furthermore be structurally functional, resilient, and long lasting available.
  • A further objective of the present invention is to provide a self-standing exhibiting package, which will additionally allow complete exhibition of the product from any angle and on all levels.
  • Still another objective of this invention is to provide such self-standing exhibiting package that will further make such contained and exhibited products highly attractive for end users at points of sale in self service stores.
  • Another objective of this invention is to make a self-standing exhibiting package that will furthermore comprise a unique and solid structure.
  • A still further objective of this invention is to make such self-standing exhibiting package available while also avoiding and eliminating the need to be put together at stores, and will furthermore avoid such product's organization for its exhibition.
  • Another objective of this invention is to make a self-standing exhibiting package that will furthermore comprise wide and visible areas for diverse advertising.
  • And all such qualities and objectives that will become apparent based on the general and detailed description of the present invention, supported by the embodiments described herein.
