Abstract

Containers are mounted in rows on a display rack having shelves inclined upwardly so that articles on the shelf tend to slide forwardly. The containers arranged in rows located side by side across the width of the shelf are formed of board or as transparent plastic jars. Each container has a base on the shelf, upstanding front and rear walls and upstanding side walls with the front and rear walls inclined at a wall angle to a plane at right angles to the base the base so that with the base sitting on the inclined shelf the front and rear walls stand substantially upright. A lid can be provided for the jars with a part hinged opening portion carrying a sample of the product n the underside. A transport tray can be provided to carry the containers and to act as a low friction support for one row on the shelf.

Description

  • This invention relates to inclined display shelves and accessories therefor which allow the better display of products for sale on display shelves of the inclined self feeding type.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Racks to hold and display packaged products in the fastener industry are known, both with horizontal and sloped or angled shelves. Shelves that are angled downwards or toward the viewer or customer are also known, and are designed in this manner to allow the remaining boxes or packages to slide forward as the first container in the row is removed by a worker or customer.
  • Carton flow racks of this type provide excellent storage density combined with picking efficiency. No power source is required, and because frontage per item is greatly reduced, restocking and picking can be done much faster. In fact, one person can do the work of three or four. Typically static shelving: pickers spend only 15% of their time doing productive work. It has been found that with gravity carton flow, pickers spend 85% of their time doing productive work. A gravity carton flow system may cost a little more than conventional shelving but it cuts labor costs drastically. This type of racking is commonly used by retailers such as Home Depot and Lowes. Examples of a system which allows the gravity flow system to be allied to conventional shelving frame work is shown in Canadian Patent 2453273 entitled SHELVING DISPLAY RACK which corresponds to U.S. Pat. No. 6,799,689.
  • Products for shelving of this type are commonly packaged in square or rectangular shaped boxes or containers to be place on the shelf. In some cases, heavily loaded boxes may bind or stick to the shelf material thus preventing the self feeding system form operating.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The protrusions may also hold a tool known as a “driver bit” when the product held by the container is a type of screw which uses a tool to apply it. The lid, when in a closed position, is retained by one or more protrusions forming a latch which are in frictional contact with the main body of the lid.
  • When applied to the arrangements shown in Canadian patent 2453273 and U.S. Pat. No. 6,799,689 related to larger pallet carrying racks, the self feeding characteristics greatly reduce labour for warehouse staff who would normally be required to pull remaining boxes and packages forward.
  • Advantages of the modified container system combined with sloped rack shelves are as follows:
  • The use of packages or containers shaped to suit the angled or sloped racks improves the ability of remaining packages to slide forward and downward as one is removed from the rack, presenting an orderly and attractive presentation of product to the customer.
  • The use of boxes or containers modified in this manner is more attractive to the customer.
  • The tendency for boxes and containers to align themselves at the front of the display reduces time spent by staff in keeping displays orderly.
  • Product counts are simplified because all boxes or packaged items are at the front of the rack.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • FIGS. 1, 2 and 8 show a conventional display rack which can be of the type shown in the above patent. In FIG. 2 the containers 15 for the articles to be sold are of the conventional type typically used with such racks. The containers 15 are arranged in a series of rows side by side across the shelf. The display rack 10 has a plurality of shelves 11 where at least some of the shelves 11 are inclined at a shelf angle B from a front edge 11A upwardly and rearwardly to a rear edge 11B so that articles on the shelf tend to slide forwardly to the front edge. The shelves are mounted on a frame system 13 of a conventional construction.
  • In FIGS. 3, 4 and 5 is shown a set of containers 20 comprising a plurality of containers 21 each having a base 22 for resting on the shelf 11, upstanding front 23 and rear 24 walls and upstanding side walls 25. The front, rear and side walls of the containers define a common width and depth of the containers so that they can be arranged in rows located side by side across the width of the shelf with a plurality of containers in each row from the front edge 11A to the rear edge 11B.
  • The containers 21 have the front and rear walls 23, 24 inclined at a wall angle A to a plane P at right angles to the base 22, which wall angle A is substantially equal to the shelf angle B so that with the base sitting on the inclined shelf the front and rear walls 23, 24 stand substantially upright.
  • As shown in FIG. 3, each container has a top 26 which is substantially parallel to the base 22.
  • As shown in FIGS. 3 and 4, the front and rear walls 23, 24 are planar and parallel and the side walls 25 are planar and parallel so that the containers are substantially rectangular. These containers are typically formed of a board material. The front wall includes a square opening 27 covered by a transparent material 28 to allow viewing of the contents.
  • In an alternative arrangement shown in FIG. 6, the walls are molded from a transparent material 30 to form a jar where the molded top 31 forms an opening 32 with a covering lid 33 with a peripheral rim 34 which is a snap fit or a screw fit onto a rib at the opening 32.
  • As shown in FIGS. 7A to 7D, wherein the lid 33 has an opening 35 therein smaller than the opening 32 in the top with a hinged opening portion 36 which snaps by a snap edge 37 shut on the lid to close the opening in the lid. As shown as an example, the lid 33 is circular and the opening is 35 semi-circular so as to form less than half of the open top 32.
  • The opening portion 36 carries protruding clips 38 to hold a sample 39 of the contents of the container against the underside of the opening portion 36. The clips are arranged in two spaced pairs 40, 41 to hold the elongate sample 39 clipped between each pair and extending longitudinally between the pairs.
  • As shown in FIGS. 5 and 7, there is provided a tray 40 with a flat base 41 arranged to sit on the shelf 11 with front and rear walls 42, 43 upstanding from the base with side walls 44, 45. The tray has a width substantially equal to the width of the containers 21 for receiving one row of the containers.
  • The tray includes a removable cover portion (note shown) attached to a top edge 47 or wrapped over the tray for retaining the containers 21 on the tray and protecting the containers for shipping. The cover portion is removable by tearing or unwrapping to allow the tray containing the containers to be placed on the shelf for display of the containers. This allows the containers to be easily loaded and also improves the sliding action in the inclined shelf. For further improvement, the side walls 44, 45 and the base 41 can include notches 46 forming narrow rails on which the containers slide. The tray can be used with conventional articles or containers to hold the row of articles or containers to be displayed for sale. For improved sliding action, the tray has at least the base thereof formed from a plastics material having a coefficient of friction less than that of the shelf.
  • The arrangement described in more detail hereinafter also provides lids for the jars which are provided with openings to allow easy removal of contained product without removing the lid from the container. The opening provided may encompass one half or more of the top surface area of the lid. The opening portion of the lid is provided with four or more protrusions to form “clips” in order to hold a tool to set or imbed the product when the product is one such as finishing nails. The protrusions may also hold a tool known as a “driver bit” when the product held by the container is a type of screw which uses a tool to apply it. The lid, when in a closed position, is retained by one or more protrusions forming a latch which are in frictional contact with the main body of the lid.
  • Since various modifications can be made in my invention as herein above described, and many apparently widely different embodiments of same made within the spirit and scope of the claims without department from such spirit and scope, it is intended that all matter contained in the accompanying specification shall be interpreted as illustrative only and not in a limiting sense.
