Abstract: front page image
(EN)A shelving apparatus (105) is provided having a first set of cross members (110) and a second set of cross members (160) which are adapted to slidably couple with one another to form an adjustable shelf. One set of cross members may have one or more male surfaces while the second set of cross members may have a corresponding number of female surfaces such that the male surfaces of the first set of cross members are slidably received by the female surfaces of the second set of cross members. The cross members, which are formed from light-weight material, may have a cavity therein to assist in making the shelving apparatus strong and light weight. A support bracket (300) is also provided for additional strength for the shelving apparatus.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un dispositif de rayonnage comprenant un premier ensemble d'éléments transversaux et un deuxième ensemble d'éléments transversaux aptes à s'accoupler coulissants de façon à former une étagère réglable. Un ensemble d'éléments transversaux peut présenter une ou plusieurs surfaces mâles tandis que le deuxième ensemble d'éléments transversaux peut présenter un nombre correspondant de surfaces femelles, de façon que les surfaces mâles du premier ensemble d'éléments transversaux sont reçues coulissantes par les surfaces femelles du deuxième ensemble d'éléments transversaux. Les éléments transversaux, qui sont réalisés dans un matériau de faible poids, peuvent comprendre une cavité qui contribue à rendre le dispositif de rayonnage léger et solide. Une pièce de support permet de renforcer davantage le dispositif de rayonnage.
