Title (EN) SUPPORT STRUCTURE AND METHOD OF ASSEMBLY THEREOF
(FR) STRUCTURE DE SUPPORT ET SON PROCEDE D'ASSEMBLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A support structure has a number of posts with flanges and slots formed in the flanges. The support structure also has a number of aprons with end tabs that are inserted into respective post flange slots. A gap defined by the apron end tabs and an edge of the apron creates an interference flit with a slot lip of the flange slot. The disclosed interlock of the aprons to the posts creates a stable support structure that has aesthetic value. The disclosed interlock further provides the capability of creating various support structures ($i(e.g.), shelving assemblies, workbenches, cabinets, storage assemblies).
(FR) L'invention porte sur une structure de support présentant un certain nombre de pieds à rebords et fentes pratiquées dans les rebords. La structure de support présente également un certain nombre de barres d'assemblage présentant des languettes d'extrémité insérées dans des fentes respectives. Un écartement délimité par les languettes d'extrémité de la barre et un bord de la barre d'assemblage crée une interférence épousant une lèvre de l'ouverture du rebord. L'encliquètement des barres d'assemblage aux pieds crée une structure de support stable esthétique. Cet assemblage permet de créer différentes structures de support (p.ex. des rayonnages, des établis, des placards et des ensembles de stockage).
