RACK.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May 30, 1911.
Application filed'May 27, 1910. .Serial No. 563,837.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CHRIST AN D. VVrsn- LOGEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Albion, Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Racks, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in racks.
My improved rack is especially designed by me for the use of bakers, although it is adapted for use in various other relations.
The main objects of this invention are: First, toprovide an improved rack whichis simple in construction and easily cleaned and one in which all the shelves are readily accessible and removable. Second, to provide animproved rack W ich is very rigid of carrying heavy loads, although made of comparatively :light ma-' terial. in which the uprights and horizontal frame members are connected in a manner that avoids the necessity of bracing.
Further objects, and objects relating to structural details, will definitely. appear from the detailed description to follow.-
I accomplish the objects of my invention by the devices and means described in the following specification. The structure described constitutes one effective embodiment of my invention. Other embodiments would be readily devised by those skilled in the art.
The invention is clearly defined and pointed out in the claims.
A structure constituting an eflective and preferred embodiment of the features of my invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification, in which:
Figure 1 is a detail side elevation of a structure embodying the features of my invention. Fig 2 is a vertical transverse section taken on a line corresponding to line 22 of Fig. 1, a single rack only being shown in position. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective showing one of the bottom corner members with the vertical and horizontal frame pleces secured thereto. Fig. 4 is a detail plan view of one of the top members,
showing the upright and horizontal menu hers secured thereto. Fig. 5 is a detail horizontal section taken on a line correspondin to line 55 of Fig. 1. Fig. 6 is a horizonta section taken one. line corresponding to line Third, to provide an improved rack 66 of Fig. 1'. Fig. 7 is a detail perspective of one of the shelves.
In the drawings, similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views, and the sectional views are taken'looking in the direction of the littlearrows at the ends of the section lines.
Referring to the drawing, my improved rack consists of the upright'corner pieces-1, the horizontally disposed top and bottom side pieces 2 and 3, respectively, and: the horizontally disposed top and bottom end pieces 4 and 5, respectively. The frame pieces are formed of angle iron, as illustrated. These frame pieces are connected by top and bottom corner members.-
The bottom corner members consist of base or horizontal plates 6, having vertically disposed flanges 7 and 8=thereon, the flanges being disposed at right angles to each other. The horizontalbottom side and endnpieces 3 and 5 are arranged in the angles formed by these flanges, the side pieces being arranged with the angles facing upwardly, while the end pieces are arranged with their angles facing downwardly so that their. hori zontal legs are in substantially the plane of the upper edges of the side pieces and are adapted to serve as shelfledges, as clearly appears from Figs. 2 and 3.
The side flange 7 of the bottom corner member projects beyond the flange 8 to form an outwardly-facing angle 9 for the corneruprights, see Figs. 3 and 6. The flanges are preferably extended upwardly at the corner to afford suitable means for attaching the corner uprights to the corner members. The top corner members are pro vided with horizontal portions or base plates 10 having flanges 11 and 12' thereon to, which the top side and end pieces 2 and 4, respectively, are'secured. The flange 11 is extended; beyond the flange 12 to provide an angle 13 for the upper endsof the uprights, see Figs. 4 and '5. By thus formin the corner members and securing the rams pieces thereto, the rack is made rigid without the aid of braces, which is of advantage not only in the economy of construction, but
also in convenience in use and in keeping the'rack in a sanitary condition.
The caster wheels 14 are secured to the and rigid.
the vertical legs thus serving as a means for preventing longitudinal movement of the shelves in the rack, and the horizontal legs serving as supports. The ends of the horizontal legs of the ledge pieces are preferably turned up to form stops 18 forthe shelves. These shelves are formed of metal and consist of suitable longitudinal pieces'or bars having cross bars secured thereto, see Fig. 7
By arranging the parts as I have illustrated and described, I provide a'rack which is easily kept in a sanitary condition, and is very convenient to use, and while the same is economical'to produce, it is very strong Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters'Patent is:
1. In a rack, the combination of the angle iron upright corner and horizontally-dis posed top and bottom side and end pieces;
and top and bottom corner members, each comprising a base plate or portion having flanges disposed vertically at right angles to each other, the flange at the side of the plate being extended beyond the flange at the end of the plate to provide an outwardly-facing angle, said corner pieces being arranged in the outwardly-facing angles of said corner members, the said side and end pieces being arranged in the horizontal angles thereof, the bottom end pieces being arranged with their angles facing downwardly so that their horizontal legs are in the plane of the upper edges of the bottom side pieces and adapted to serve as shelf ledges. v
2. In a rack, the combination of the angleiron upright corner and horizontally-disposed side and end pieces and corner mem bers comprising base plates or portions having flanges disposed vertically at right angles to each other to which said top and bottom side and end pieces are secured, said side and end pieces being arranged in the horizontal angles of said corner members, and said uprights being arranged in the outwardly-facing angles of said corner members; and angle-iron rack ledges secured to the inwardly-projecting legs of said uprights with their angles facing upwardly.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal in the presence of two witnesses.
