Abstract

The present invention relates to a rack construction assembly for the storage of articles. The rack construction comprises several base plates which are held one above the other by means of supporting elements to be assembled with the base plates. In the region of the junction points of base plates and supporting elements there are provided locking elements which lock in when the base plates are connected with the supporting elements, thus securing the single parts of the rack construction against unintentional disengagement. This rack construction can be assembled and disassembled quickly and without any tools and offers all-over access to pick up articles.

This rack construction includes several equally shaped base plates stacked one above the other and several equally shaped supporting elements to be joined with said base plates, said supporting elements holding said base plates one above the other in the rack arrangement.

Thanks to their construction, such racks being in particular used in self-service shops and in whole-sale spots, offer a good view onto the goods stored on the base plates and the possibility to pick up goods from all sides. In known rack constructions of such type the base plates and the supporting elements keep together only due to gravity and due to the weight of the stored goods. When the rack construction is to be relocated or if anyone runs heavily into the rack construction there is the danger that one supporting element loosens from the base plate and the rack construction falls down into itself. Other known rack constructions are, when they are assembled, held together by mechanic means (e.g. by screws and nuts). It is a disadvantage that it is very tedious to assemble and disassemble these rack constructions. It is the object of this invention to form the supporting elements and the base plates in such manner to prevent unintentional disassemblage of supporting elements and base plates and to make possible quick assemblage or disassemblage of the rack construction without any auxiliary means.

In a rack construction according to this invention the afore-mentioned problems are solved by the features that each of said supporting elements includes on both ends projections projecting normally to the longitudinal direction, that each base'plate is provided on its upper side and on its lower side with receiving shafts, whereby the cross-sections of said receiving shafts correspond to the respective end section of said supporting elements, and that locking elements are provided on said projections and on one outer end wall of said receiving shaft respectively to lock into one another when a supporting element is joined with a base plate.

The advantages of the rack construction according to this invention are: When it is disassembled, the rack construction requires only a minimum of space and it can be assembled and disassembled very quickly and without any tools. Due to the locking elements there is obtained a stable construction which can easily be relocated as a whole and which offers a high loading capacity. Since all the base plates and supporting elements are equally shaped, the production cost are low. Another advantage of the rack construction according to this invention over bolted racks or wire-racks is the more pleasant appearance. The form and the material of the supporting elements may easily be chosen in such way that the view onto the base plates is hardly obstructed.

Other features, additional objects, and many of the attending advantages of this invention will readily be appreciated as the same becomes better understood by reference to the following detailed description of preferred embodiments when considered in connection with the appended drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a rack construction having square-shaped base plates;

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of a corner section of a base plate and of an end portion of a supporting element arranged above the base plate;

FIG. 3 is a sectional view along line III-III in FIG. 2; and

FIG. 4 is a sectional view of another embodiment of this invention corresponding to the section of FIG. 3.

The rack construction as illustrated in FIG. 1 has three levels formed by three identical base plates 1. Another base plate forms the upper end of the rack construction. The base plates have a square shape. Four equally shaped supporting elements 2 whose ends are inserted into receiving shafts or receptacles on the four corners of the top surface on the next lower base plate and on the bottom surface on the next higher base plate are arranged between two adjacent base plates 1. The supporting elements are L-shaped in horizontal section, made of plastic plate material of uniform thickness, and

so narrow that the view onto the articles stored on the base plates is only slightly obstructed and that the goods can easily be picked up. An improvement of good view can be achieved by making the supporting elements of translucent material.

The formation of a comer by a base plate 1 and the end portion of a supporting element 2 is illustrated in FIGS. 2 and 3. The base plate 1 comprises a square plate 3 and an outer end wall 4 connected with or forming an integral part with plate 3; the outer end wall 4 is arranged perpendicularly with respect to plate 3 and has a vertical dimension of approximately 1 to 2 centimeters extending above and below plate 3. In the corners of the base plate 1 the thickness of outer end wall 4 is thinner by approximately half its size over a predetermined length. At each end of this thinned portion that is farthest away from the corner there are provided two recesses 7 of square-shaped cross-section in the outer wall 4, i.e., one recess above and the other recess below plate 3. In each corner of base plate 1 there is an inner end wall 5 which forms the second wall of the receiving shaft 6 which is open on both ends and in a direction away from the surface of the base plate 1. The inner end wall 5 consists of two shanks forming a right angle; these shanks are arranged in a distance from the outer end wall 4, which distance corresponds to the wall thickness of the supporting element. The length of both shanks corresponds approximately to half the length of the thinned portion of the outer end wall. The shaft or receptacle 6 is L-shaped in a plane parallel to the base plate 1, and the opposite faces of the walls 4, 5 which bound the receptacle therebetween are correspondingly shaped.

The supporting element 2 consists of plate material and has two longitudinal, rectangularly shaped wall or leg portions 8 which meet each other in a longitudinal edge of the element 2 at a right angle; the thickness of these wall portions 8 corresponds to the width of the receiving shaft 6. On each end of the supporting element, the width of the two wall portions is approximately doubled, thus forming two projections 9 in common planes with the leg portions 8respectively. The height of these projections 9 corresponds approximately to the height of the outer end wall 4, and the thickness corresponds approximately to half the thickness of the outer end wall. Wedge-shaped cams 10 are provided on the outer end of the projections 9 which extend beyond the inner wall 5; with their steep rear side these cams lock, when completely inserted into the receiving shaft, into the recesses 7 provided in said receiving shaft, thus preventing an unintentional disengagement of supporting element 2 and base plate 1.

The base plate and the supporting elements are made of resilient plastic material. They can easily be produced according to the die-casting method. It is suitable to make the supporting element of transparent material so that there is little obstruction of the view onto the displayed goods.

in another embodiment of this invention see sectional view of FIG. 4 the positions of the recesses and of the wedge-shaped cams are exchanged. The recesses 12 are provided in the projections 9 of the supporting elements 2, the cams 11 are provided on outer end wall 4. This second embodiment is easier to realize in production than the first mentioned.

In other embodiments the surface of the base plate may be round, rectangular or polygonal. if the surface forms e.g. a circle sector, then at the ends of a supporting element 2 the cross-section is formed with a corresponding curvature. The inner end wall 5 is then also correspondingly curved. In this case it is suitable to provide the supporting element 2 with two longitudinal ribs so as to prevent a movement of the supporting element in a direction parallel to the curvature, and to further improve the bending strength of the supporting element.

It is also possible to assemble base plates only with one supporting element; then the supporting element is arranged centrally or asymmetrically with respect to the base plate.
