Philadelphia, Pa.,

acorporation of Pennsylvania Application-Decenibcr 27, 1935, Serial No. 56,332 1 Claimr (Cl. 211-85)'-' This-invention relates to Tacks useful more particularly in retail stores for the stacking and display of boxed merchandise-andthe like;

My invention is directedtowardthe provisionofa compact-and attractive -rack suitable for the purpose-mentioned which is light in weight; yet

sturdy; which is capable of economic manufacture from wire or bar metal ofirelatively small gauge; which affords a multiplicity of--sectionsor compartments fr-thestackihg of boxed mer chandise of different kinds or b'randswithtradel marks or other identifyingsymbolson them'- plainly visible, as well as holders for markers-indicating the prices of the merchandise in the different sections; an'd which can be collapsed flat for convenience of storage and shipment.

Other objects and attendant advantages will appear from the detailed description which follows of the attached drawings, wherein Fig. I is a perspective view showing the manner in which my improved rack is intended to be used.

Fig. II is a perspective view of the rack by itself.

Fig. III is a plan sectional view taken as indicated by the arrows III-III in Fig. II.

Fig. IV shows the rack collapsed; and

Fig. V is a sectional view taken as indicated by the arrows V-V in Fig. IV.

From these illustrations, it will be noted that my improved rack is constructed wholly of wire or metallic rod stock of relatively small gauge and that it comprises a back component I; a front component 2; end components 3, 4; and a pair of intermediate upright partition components 5, 6. As shown, these partition components 5, 6 set apart three columnar storage spaces 1, 8, 9 for stacked boxes B, B and B (Fig. I) containing merchandise of different makes or brands with trade-marks or other identifying symbols on them plainly visible from the front of the rack. The back component I of the rack is of stepped configuration, and embodies a central invert U-shaped member ID; two opposltely disposed counterpart flanking invert L- shaped members II, I2 which are of a lesser height and have their top horizontals welded fast to the uprights of the central member at I3, I3; and a connecting horizontal member I5 near the bottom of the rack which is in turn welded fast at I6, I6 and I7, I8 to the uprights of both said central and flanking members. The lower ends of the verticals of the flanking members II, I2 of the back component I are turned up to form rear supporting feet I9 and 20 for the rack and have their ends welded fast to the horizontal member I5 at 2I and 22.1 At,an intermediate level, the Verticals .of' the, central, member ID .of I the back component I arejoined. by arela il/ely short horizontal '2 3 iwhi c h is welded fast at 24,, 24; Permanently secured'bywelding.centrally of the tops ofthethreelmembers"I0;;I Iand I2 of.

the back component 2 are; upright holder clips 2 5, 26 and 21 :forcards giving; the price and/or other information:regarding the merchandise in,

the three columns '1', :8, andj9."

The front component '2 'ofthe rackincludes end uprights 28, 29 and intermediate uprights"30; 3.I

which severally are connectedin thehorizontal h P1311610? h "b i m me b rilfioi t1,ie'i wl v component I by a -horizontal"32 which is'welded fast to said uprights'at 33, 34 and 35, 36, the

latter having their lower portions turned up toform front feet 31, 38 for the rack withthe ends welded fast to said horizontal 32 at 39, 40. In the plane of the intermediate horizontal 23 of the back component I, the verticals 28-3I of the front component 2 are joined by a horizontal 4| which is welded fast to said verticals at 42, 43 and 44, 45.

The end components 3 and 4 are identical and of a height corresponding substantially to that of the flanking portions II, I2 of the back component I. As shown, the end components 3, 4

comprise topand bottom horizontals 46, 41 and 48, 49 respectively at the levels of the top horizontals of the flanking portions II and-I2 of the back component I and the lower horizontals I5 and 32 respectively of the back and front components I and 2. As shown, the horizontals 46, 41, and 48, 49 of the end components 3 and 4 are connected by pairs of centrally-disposed spaced verticals 50, 50 and 5|, 5I and have their ends curled about the verticalsof the flanking members II, I2 of the back component I and the end verticals 28, 29 of the front component 2 as indicated respectively at 52, 53 and 54, 55. At the level of the intermediate horizontal M of the front component 2, the end components 3 and 4 are provided with horizontals 56, 51 which have their endsfreely curledabout the verticals of the flanking members II, I2 of the back component I and the end verticals 28, 29 of the front component 2 as indicated at 58 and 59. The verticals 50 and 5I of the end members 3, 4 are welded fast to the horizontals 46, 41, 56 and 48, 49, 51 at 60 and. 6| respectively.

The intermediate vertical partitions 5 and 6 are similar to the end components 3 and 4 but of a height corresponding substantially to that of the central member II) of the back component shown in Fig. I.for boxes of different sizes con-'' I. As shown, the vertical partitions 5 and 6 have upper and lower and'intermediate horizontals 62, 63, 64 and 65, 66, 61 respectively with their ends freely curled about the, verticals of the central member ID of the back component I and the intermediate verticals 30 and 3| of the front component 2 at 68, 69, I0 and ll, 12, 13 and which are joined by pairs of centrally disposed spaced verticals l5, l6 welded fast at H, 18, I9 and 80, 6| and 82 respectively. 1

In order to support the stacks of boxes B, B and B the rack is provided with three bottom shelves 84, 85 and 86 also formed of wire with curls 81, 88 and 89 freely embracing the lower horizontal l5 of the back component I, and ar-' serves asan intermediate horizontal partition for the. central section with formation of upper and, lower divisions which may be utilized as taining the samerbrand of. merchandise. 'In addition to supporting the price cards C, C1 and C the holder clips function as back restsfor boxes B, B and B placed upright for better display at the tops of the piles.

From the foregoing it will be seen that my -inventionafiordsca compact and attractivedisplay rackof inexpensive construction, whichis light,

and, by virtue of having the parts of its several components welded together, is sturdy and strong. Due to theopen design of the rack, it is readily accessible both from the front and the back for insertion of the boxes B, B and B? initially, as well as withdrawal as the merchandise is sold. For convenience of storage and/or shipment, the rack may be collapsed fiat, by swinging the hinged shelves up into the plane of the back component and then swinging the end and partition components in one direction or the other as permitted by the several pivotal connections until they lie flat, with the front component 2 against said back component as shown in Figs. IV and V. 7

Having thus described my invention, I claim:

A collapsible multi-column display rack comprising a back component with vertical end bars, vertical intermediate bars and. connecting cross bars at different levels; a front component with vertical end and. intermediate cross bars corresponding to those of the back component; end

components and intervening partitioning -com-,

ponents having spacedvertical bars, and connecting cross bars at different levels having pivot ears at opposite ends engaging the corresponding end and intermediate vertical bars of theback and the front components, and shelves in the several columnsof the rack, each shelf beingpivotally connected to a cross bar of theback component and adapted to restlwith its swinging edgeresting on a corresponding bar of the front component;
