DESCRIPTION

PRODUCT DISPLAY STAND

Technical Field

The invention refers to product display stands that enable multiple ceramic and similar materials to be easily displayed on the same platform.

It relates to a product display stand in which the product is prevented from moving out of its way in the direction of movement of the panel on which the product is positioned and which prevents the panel from moving out of the platform by keeping the panel at a certain distance and which performs all of these processes with a little force.

Background of the Art

Nowadays, it is known that there are stands where more than one product is displayed on the same platform by placing them one behind the other, and moving the panels to the right and left. This kind of display stands are used for many different materials. However, especially if the product connected to the panel is a heavy product (e.g. ceramic), the movements and stopping functions of panels are of great importance. The weight that occurs on the panel with the connection of the heavy products such as ceramic materials on the panel increases the possibility of panel's going out of its way during its movement. In addition, the fact that the product to be displayed is heavy leads to increase of the force to be applied by the user moving the panel. Generally, display stands that are used to exhibit the layered products manufactured from ceramic material at trade fairs and stores are composed of panels, the main body (platform) to which the panels are connected and structures allowing the panel to be moved. The product to be displayed is glued onto and/or fixed to the panel. In patent applications made to eliminate the problems occurring at the movement axis and stop points of the panel on which ceramic materials are placed, the aim was to develop various solutions for the movement axis and stopping mechanism of the panel. Among these applications; in a patent application no. EP1623656 by a Spanish company called MOIDECAR, S.L; There is a sub platform and there are gaps formed on this platform in the same line direction. It is composed of a carrier frame connected to the platform and panels that are moved laterally to the right and to the left by means of this frame and the lower platform. The panel includes a wheel on which there are protrusions (notches) corresponding to the gaps on the platform so as to move smoothly in the same line direction. This wheel carries panels and ensures lateral movement of the panels following the line on the platform. The solution described in this application makes it obvious that if the holes opened to ensure panel's movement on the same line are filled due to various negative causes, panel's movement axis will shift and its movement will be restricted.

The other application is the patent application no. ES1058255 filed on 06.08.2004. In this application, the panels placed to display ceramic material is positioned horizontally at an angle other than the vertical position. Also, there is also a conveyor platform positioned vertically to the floor and functioning as a rail for the lateral movement of the panels. Channels were created on this platform, and then the wheels attached to the panel were placed on these channels to ensure lateral movement to right and left. When the patent applications of ISCA S.L are examined, it is seen that lateral movement of the panel is ensured by the movement of the wheel on the guide created on the platform or by the holes.

When examining the present technique, all known patent documents and applications, the protrusions on the panel movement move through the holes formed at certain intervals on the platform or a guide formed on the platform (ledge) in the panel sliding on the axis formed by the movement of the concave shape is intended to prevent the wheel. However, the developments made regarding the movement and stopping the movement of the panel are not sufficient. For example, in many applications, the hook formed at the bottom of the panel stops after passing to protruding bean on the lower platform plate, but if the panel goes out of its way it does not stop and continues to go forward. This is significant as the weight of ceramic connected panel may lead to possible injuries.

Unlike all existing applications, L-shaped parts mounted on both lower sides of the panel collide with the protruding tongue of the lower plate in the invented system, thereby ensuring that the panel is stopped. Also, in the invented stand, it is impossible to divert the panel from its axis of movement and to take it out of the stand without releasing one side of the L-beams from its bolts. In the invented system, it is ensured that the panel can move by squeezing it by four wheels put on the bottom block, without a channel, protruding road or bean hole and without axis shift on the flat surface.

Description of the Invention

The invention is for the lateral movement of the carrier panel where the ceramic material is located; the desired lateral movement is ensured without the need to create a tracking line on the sub-platform. So, in the invented system, it is ensured that the panel can move by squeezing it by four wheels put on the bottom block, without a channel, protruding road or bean hole and without axis shift on the flat surface.

One of the objectives of the invention is that it has a structure that allows the panels to operate quietly by applying little force for the lateral movement.

The other objective of the invention is to have a structure which is easy to manufacture and assemble and to be a unit composed of few parts.

Another objective of the invention is to perform safe termination by means of the L-beams used for stopping the movement of the panel.

In order to accomplish the above-mentioned objectives, the invention provides a display stand to exhibit ceramic and similar materials which comprise a platform positioned horizontally to the floor and a carrier panel linearly moved on said horizontal platform, and it includes low- bedding blocks fixed to the horizontal platform with roller wheels in a way to squeeze the said panel from both lower sides, and upper wheel group bedding equipment which consists of upper wheel group to restrict panel's movement on the axis above the career panel in order to ensure the movement of said panel to the right and left without deviating from the axis line. In order to fulfill the above-mentioned objectives, the invention includes a locking tab on the lower bedding block to allow the linearly moved panel to be stopped at the desired distance in the horizontal direction.

In order to fulfill the above-mentioned objectives, the invention comprises at least one stop element on the panel, which allows the panel to be stopped through said the said locking tab. In order to accomplish the above-mentioned objectives, the invention includes roller wheels with plastic sheathing in said lower bedding block to provide movement on its axis by pressing from different points on the panel.

In order to realize all the advantages mentioned above and which will be understood from the following detailed description, this invention brings along lots of conveniences.

Detailed Description of the Invention

In this detailed description, preferred structuring of the invented product display stand is shown to provide a better understanding of the subject, and it does not aim to impose any restriction.

Considering the elements of the present technique, the invention includes a vertical platform (10) vertically positioned to the floor, a horizontal platform (20) connected to this platform (10) and horizontally positioned to the floor, and a carrier panel (40) linearly moved on this horizontal platform (20). The front surface of the carrier panel (40) is the product positioning surface (44) and the products to be displayed are connected to this product positioning surface (44).

From an innovative perspective, this invention ensures the movement of the panel squeezed between 2 lower bedding blocks (35) mounted on the horizontal platform of the stand (20) to the right and left on the axis line without any channel, protruding channel or guide via numerous (preferable 4) plastic-covered roller wheels (35.1) (see Figure 4).

Figure 1 is a front perspective view of the invented product display stand. The view in Figure 1 shows the vertical platform (10) vertically positioned to the floor, a horizontal platform (20) connected to this platform (10) and horizontally positioned to the floor, a carrier panel (40) linearly moved on this horizontal platform (20), and the upper wheel group bedding assembly (30) which is above the said carrier panel (40) and aims to restrict panel's movement on its axis. Figure 2 is a perspective view of the front disassembly (upper wheel group bedding assembly (30)) of the invented product display stand. This view shows the guiding gaps (31.1) used to position the upper wheel group (33) on the guiding plate (31), and at least one mounting profile (32) used to mount the guiding plate (31) on the vertical platform (10). The upper wheel group (33) includes an intermediate connection profile (34) which ensures contact between roller wheels (33.3) and mounting collars (33.2) to provide the connection of said roller wheels (33.3). Figure 3 is a close-up perspective view of the upper wheel group (33) of the invented product display stand. If you want to move the panel (40) linearly in the direction of a-b, you can ensure the lateral movement of the panel on the horizontal platform (20) by applying force by using the hand-arm (43). To make this movement, a rail profile (41) was formed on the upper surface of the panel (40). The upper wheel group (33) is positioned in the rail clearance (42) on this profile (41). Since the upper wheel group (33) has a rotary motion by applying force onto the panel (40), it functions both as a wheel and a guide for the linear movement of the panel (40). Said upper wheel group (33) is mounted on the vertical platform (10) by using the guiding plate (31) and mounting profile (32). The mounting profile (32) is mounted on the mounting edge (11) of the vertical platform (10). The rail clearance (42) is preferably located on the lower and upper surfaces of the panel (40) as well to provide the desired bedding in both areas. In the invented system developed to allow the panel (40) to move on the axis, the lower bedding blocks (35) placed on the lower part of the panel (40) and the upper wheel group (33) located above the block ensure that the panel (40) remains on its axis from the top and bottom. A detailed description of this process will be given in the information about Figure 6.

Figure 3a shows a close-up perspective view of the locking tab (35.2) and the stop element (45) (L-beam) which allows the panels to be stopped at a certain distance. Even if the movement of the panel (40) on horizontal axis is important, panel's ability to stop at a determined place is important as well. Considering the weight of the products connected to the product positioning surface (44), panel's (40) not being able to stop and going out of its way bring along some risks. For this reason, there is a locking tab (35.2) located on the lower bedding block (35) to stop the panel (40) linearly moved in the horizontal position at a certain distance and at least one stop element (45) which is located on the panel (40) and allows the panel to stop via the said locking tab (35.2). Said stop element (45) is mounted on the lower back side of the panel (40) and preferably has an L-shaped structure.

Lower bedding blocks (35) are mounted on the horizontal platform (20) for smooth movement and guidance of the panels (40) on the horizontal platform (20). You can find the pictures of the details of the lower bedding blocks (35) in Figure 5 from different angles. The roller wheels (35.1) with plastic sheaths in lower bedding block (35) provide movement on the axis by pressing onto the panel (40) from different points. The stop element (35.2) in the lower bedding block (35) terminates the movement by striking the stop element (45) located at both ends of the panel (40) with this movement. The stop elements (45) are fixed to the said panel on one side by means of a welding method and the other side is fixed by means of bolts so that it is not possible to displace the stop element (45) without removing it. Bolting holes (35.4) were created to ensure that lower bedding blocks (35) are connected to horizontal platform (20) plate and bolt indents were placed to ensure that the bolts can be interlocked with the outer bolting holes (35.4). Rounded square fixing guides (35.3) were also created to prevent slipping to the left and right while securing the said lower bedding blocks (35) to the above-mentioned horizontal platform (20) plate.

Figure 6 is a view showing the effect of the upper wheel group and the lower bedding block (35) on the panel (40) axis. The roller wheels (35.1) with the plastic sheath on the lower bedding block (35) force the bottom profile of the panel (40) to move on the axial plane by pressing from both sides. The same principle allows the upper wheel group (33), which enters the top profile, to move right and left in the axial direction of the panel by forcing it to move on its own axis (40) from the inside of the panel top U-profile (40) through its points by means of the plastic sheathed bearing rolling wheels (33.3) from points A (40).
