" sum 3 OF 3 BERN M'ARGOLIS IRVING B. SAUNDERS INVENTORS ATTORNEYS SLIDING PANEL DISPLAY BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates generally to a paneling mits panels to be slidingly. displaced relative to one another for observation and inspection.

As is well known, there are many conventional structures which permit panels to be displayed for consumer observation and inspection and these structures usually incorporate means upon which the panels may be pivotally or hingedly displaced relative to one another analogous to the manner by which pagesare displaceable relative to one another in a book. The consumer is generally confronted with the problem of 'having to push a great number of these panels whichadjoin one another in one direction away from a particular panel that the consumer wishes to inspect, and this of course, because of the rather great weight of the panels, is somewhat undesirable.

Moreover, the panels are not readily identifiable from distances remote from the display and this tends to diminish the extent .of information the display is to relay to consumers passing by the display as they brouse through other articles beingsold in the outlet in which the paneling is being exhibited.

Thus, from the standpoint of ease by which the indi vidual panels may be inspectedor observed by consumers and the manner by which the consumers-attention is called to the particular paneling exhibit, the paneling exhibits of conventional variety are less than most effective.

Another disadvantage associated with the prior art, or conventional type of hinged supported panelingexhibition or display apparatus, is the fact that the .arrangement is not necessarily .esthetically pleasing from the standpoint of the consumer and the retailer since, in fact, those panels which are together hingedly displaced away from the selected panel under observation, thereafter, extend such that the back or rear surface portions of the panels so displaced are then visible to consumers and purchasers whothen observe different groups of panels extending in different directions and not in a uniform and neat arrangement. Obviously, whenever a particular display is not neat or esthetically pleasing to the consumer, there is certainly a diminished effectiveness in the display to sell-itself."

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide an improved paneling exhibition apparatus.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a paneling display wherein each of the panels are slidingly displaceable relative to one another in generally parallel relation and independently for permitting ready inspection and observation thereof.

It is another object of the present invention to sup-' It is another object of the present invention to provide a paneling display such that all the panels can be exposed at one time, wherein each of the panels successively overlap one another and portions are exposed for permitting ready identification of each of the panels relative to one another.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a paneling display wherein each of the panels may be removed, rearranged and exchanged as the need arises, by the retailer.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a paneling display wherein each of the panels may be selected independently without the requirement for displacing a plurality of panels relative to the particular panel which is to be inspected.

It is still a further object of the present invention to provide a paneling display wherein each of the panels is provided with respective rollers to enhance the ease by which each of the panels may be displaced or withdrawn relative to one another for observation.

To this end, the present invention relates to paneling exhibition apparatus comprising means for confining a plurality of panels in a stepped array successively overlapping one another in generally parallel relation such that respective portions of the panels remain exposed,

means for permitting at least partial withdrawal of each of said panels independently relative to one another in parallel relation, brace means displaceable with each of said panels independently for reenforcing each of the latter against edge distortion, and guide means along which eachsaid' brace means is displaceable for guiding independent withdrawal of said panels relative to one another.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS With the above and additional objects and advantages in view as will hereinafter appear, this invention comprises the devices, combinations and arrangements of parts hereinafter described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings of a preferred embodiment in which:

FIG. 1 illustrates a perspective view of a portion of the paneling display as arranged for observation;

FIG; 2 illustrates an exploded perspective view of a typical panel and the frame members as associated with one another;

FIG. 3 illustrates a generally side elevational view, partly in cross-section, of two adjoining frame panels relative to one another;

FIG. 4 illustrates a generally front elevational view, partly in cross-section, of a typical panel as arranged in the display apparatus of the present invention; and

FIG. 5 illustrates a generally plan view in schematic arrangement of the panels as supported in the display apparatus of the present invention.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION Referring now to the drawings and more particularly to FIG. 1 thereof, there is illustrated a paneling exhibition apparatus generally denoted by the reference charters 16. Extending above the upper tracks 14 is a display sign 18 carrying informative matter publicizing the nature of the display. Each of the framed panels 12 is provided with respective exposed face portions 20 which remain exposed relative to one another and normally concealed face portions, the latter encompassing substantially two-thirds of each panel, lying in interposition between adjacent panels and generally to the right of the scored lines 22 as illustrated for one of the panels 12, that panel which is entirely observable in FIG. 1 as it is shown in its forwardmost withdrawal position. Moreover, each of the exposed portions 20 is provided with a label 24 or the like to permit further identification of the specific panels relative to one anotherv As illustrated in FIG. 2, each of the panels 12, which generally differ from one another in illustrative character, includes edge portions 26 upon which a bracing frame may be connected as protective means for reenforcing each of the panels 12 against edge distortion or warping. The bracing frame, of preferably metallic nature, generally includes a pair of side reenforcing edge members 28, an upper reenforcing edge member 30 and a lower reenforcing edge member 32. Each of the side reenforcing edge members 28 is provided with a longitudinally extending groove 34 for receiving the respective vertically extending edges 26 of the panels 12. The upper reenforcing edge member 30 is similarly provided with a longitudinal groove 36 for accommodating the upper edge portion 26 of the panels 12 respectively. Moreover, the lower reenforcing edge member 32 is provided with a longitudinally extending groove 38 for accommodating the lower edge portion 26 of the panels 12 respectively.

Each of the reenforcing edge members 28, 30 and 32 may, therefore, be respectively straddled about the respective edge portions 26 of the panels 12 and interconnected to one another as will be described immediately below.

A pair of upper corner connecting members 40, provided with respective follower rollers 42, are utilized for interconnecting the upper portions of the side reenforcing edge members 28 to the respective opposite ends of the upper reenforcing edge member 30, whereas a pair of lower corner connecting members 44, provided with respective follower projections 46, are utilized for interconnecting the lower end portions of the side reenforcing edge members 28 to the opposite end portions of the lower reenforcing edge member 32.

Each of the upper corner connecting members 40 may be partially inserted into the upper end portions of the side reenforcing edge members 28, the latter being provided with respective channels (not shown) having a configuration adapted to snugly receive the respective upper corner connecting members 40. Moreover, each of the upper corner connecting members 40 is provided with a generally horizontally extending depressible tongue 48 which may be depressed inwardly or laterally of the members 40 as the latter are inserted into the respective channels in the side reenforcing edge members 28.

As the upper corner connecting members 40 are inserted downwardly into the respective channels in the side reenforcing edge members 28, the respective tongues 48 thereof will slide along the inner wall of the aforementioned channels until the upper corner connecting members 40 are sufficiently inserted such that the respective tongues 48 thereof will snap through and outwardly of respective grooves or slots 50 provided along the channels in each of the side reenforcing edge members 28 at the upper portions thereof. Once each of the upper corner connecting members 40 is properly connected to the respective side reenforcing edge members 28, the members 40 may be utilized for interconnecting the opposite end portions of the upper reenforcing edge member 30 to the side reenforcing edge members 28.

In this respect, each of the upper corner connecting members 40 is provided with a generally vertically extending tongue 52 which may be inserted through appropriate grooves or slots provided at the opposite end portions of the upper reenforcing edge member 30.

The lower corner connecting members 44 are generally very similar to that of the upper corner connecting members 40, except for the fact that the lower corner connecting members 44 are provided with axially extending follower projections 46 respectively, whereas the upper corner connecting members 40 are provided with respective follower rollers 42. Thus, the lower corner connecting members 44 are provided with generally horizontally extending depressible tongues 56 respectively and may be properly inserted into respective channels (not shown) at the lower end portion of each of the side reenforcing edge members 28, the depressible tongues 56 being projectable through respective grooves or slots 58 in each of the lower portions of the side reenforcing edge members 28.

In this manner, the lower corner connecting members 44 will also be resiliently held detachably in the respective side reenforcing edge members 28. Moreover, the lower corner connecting members 44 are each provided with generally vertically extending tongues 60 for insertion into respective grooves or slots 62 provided at the opposite end portions of the lower reenforcing edge member 32.

It should be clear, that the utilization of depressible or resiliently supported tongues which cooperate with associated grooves or slots in the respective edge members permits each of the panels 12 to be readily framed along the edge portions 26 thereof to diminish to a great extent, if not altogether, edge distortion, warping and other damage to the panels along the edges thereof as would otherwise occur in the absence of the protective support or bracing frame. Moreover, the frames may be readily removed for permitting one panel to be exchanged with another. It should be understood, that although the upper and lower corner connecting members 40 and 44 respectively have been described as the means for interconnecting the reenforcing edge members 28, 30 and 32 to one another, other suitable means, as those skilled in the art readily appreciate, may be readily incorporated for interconnecting these members to one another as aforementioned.

As illustrated in FIG. 2, each of the upper tracks 14 is provided with a longitudinally extending groove 64 along which the follower rollers 42 of the upper corner connecting members 40 may be displaced freely. Moreover, each of the lower tracks 16 is provided with a longitudinally extending groove 66 in and along which the respective follower projections 46 of the lower corner connecting members 44 may be displaced freely. Thus, the grooves 64 and 66 provided in the tracks 14 and 16 respectively, act as guides for maintaining each of the framed panels 12 generally vertical and permit parallel displacement of these panels 12 relative to one another for observation and inspection.

This relationship, wherein the rollers 42 and projections 46 are associated with the grooves 64 and 66 in the upper and lower tracks and 16 respectively is most clearly evident in FIG. 3. The paneling exhibition apparatus is provided with an upper track supporting member 68 and a lower track supporting member 70, between which the respective bracing frames 72 which reenforce the panels 12 along the edge portions thereof are displaceable. The upper tracks 14 are generally bracketed as illustrated in FIG. 3 and connected to the upper track supporting member 68 through the intermediary of screws 74 or the like.

The paneling exhibition apparatus 10, is provided with what may be generally characterized as a housing 76, having a flooring 78 and cross-beams 80 at both the upper and lower portions of the housing 76 for appropriately supporting the upper and lower track supporting members 68 and 70 respectively.

The arrangement of the paneling exhibition apparatus l0 and the relative operative association of each of the panels 112 relative to one another is best illustrated in FIG. 5. In this respect, FIG. 5 illustrates a generally plan view of the arrangement of the present invention, wherein each of the bracing frames 72, in which are respectively mounted the panels 12, extends in generally spaced parallel relation with one another and successively overlap one another in what may be characterized as a stepped array. Moreover, each of the bracing frames 72 may be displaced from respective display positions, generally illustrated in solid line, between rear and front abutments 82 and 84 respectively which act to limit the extent of displacement of each of the bracing frames 72 relative to one another. Preferably, the front abutment 84 is detachable to permit replacement or removal of the framed panels 12. Reference character 86 generally denotes positions illustrated in phantom which define the forward-most position that each of the panels 12 or the bracing frames 72 may be displaced into for permitting complete observation and inspection of the panels 12 relative to one another.

It is important to note, that the rear and front abutments 82 and 84 respectively may be of minimal extent and provided on either or on both of the upper and lower track supporting members 68 and 70 respectively. Moreover, in order to stabilize the upper and lower track supporting members 68 and 70 respectively relative to one another, there are provided a plurality of vertical posts 88 between respective groups of the bracing frames 72 and these vertical posts 88 are generally concealed by the panels 12, at the rearmost positions of the latter, so as not to detract from the esthethic appearance of the display pursuant to the present invention.

An important feature of the present invention is the fact that each .of the panels 12, or the bracing frames 72, extend in generally vertical parallel planes with one another and extend in respective parallel directions mutually inclined relative to a vertical plane, generally denoted by the horizontally disposed line 90 in FIG. 5, passing through a common point, the rear edge, of each of the bracing frames 72, or panels 12. This feature of the present invention permits each of the panels 12 to be provided with the respective exposed portions 20, generally defined by the spacing E between two adjacent panels 12 as illustrated in FIG. 5. Therefore, the

coloring and other surface configurations provided on the panels 12 which differ from one another, may be readily observed whether one or a plurality of adjoining panels 12 are slidingly displaced forwardly into the positions denoted by the reference character 86 in FIG. 5 for direct comparison. Moreover, each of the labels 24 provided on the panels 12 respectively is also directly observable for comparison purposes.

Accordingly, the present invention obviates a number of disadvantages associated with conventional paneling displays, in that the present invention permits the consumer to readily observe an esthetically pleasing display, and one which does not become unsightly due to the lack of care and harsh treatment that the panels are usually subjected to as displayed. The present invention permits the panels to be displaced relative to one another simply without any necessity for displacing other panels away from a selected panel. Moreover, the panels as framed, and slidingly mounted, provided a display which is economical in space, one that permits panels to be removed, exchanged and rearranged relative to one another, and prevents the panels from being damaged or distorted along the edge portions thereof.

Numerous alterations of the structure herein disclosed will suggest themselves to those skilled in the art. However, it is to be understood that the present disclosure relates to a preferred embodiment of the invention which is for purposes of illustration only and is not to be construed as a limitation of the invention.
