CARD

Application filed May 18,

pockets of a rack.

The main. and primary object ofthe in vention resides in the provision, insuch a card rack, of an improved pocket and frame construction which is of a built-up character for ready assemblage in any size and which isfeatured by the combined advantages of decided reductions in weight, in amount of materials used, and in costs of production and assemblage over theordinary form of rack wherein doublewalled pockets and supporting backs for the poeket-forming members are employed.

Another. important object of the invention resides in the provision of a rack of this character which dispenses with the ordinary backing member and provides pockets on both sides of the rack by using only the number of pocket-formingmembers usually required for ,one side. V

While the foregoing statements. are indicative of the nature of the invention, other objects and advantages not herein specifically referred to will be obvious upon a full understandingof the rack structure as set forth in the following detailed description and accompanying drawings wherein is delineated two embodiments of the invention. These particular embodiments are chosen principally for the purpose of exemplification, and are accordingly not intended to restrict the spirit of the invention or to limit unnecessarily the scope of the appendedclaims. 1 i

In the drawings, i

Fig. 1 is a front view of .the rack;

Fig.2 is a vertical section on the line 22 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a horizontal section on the line 33of Fig; 1; i

Fig. 5 is a vertical section through a modified form 01". the rack wherein a backing member and a series of thesingle pocket forming members are employed.

Referring now to the drawings, the rack 10 of this invention is shown as consisting of a plurality of superposed pocket-forming members 11 retained within a skeleton frame 12.v This frame is constructed of two channeled uprights 13 which are connected at their tops by a channeled cap plate 14;, and at their bottoms by achanneled base plate 15. The frame parts above described may be secured together by means of two tiebolts 16. Apertured ears17 may be provided, as shown, on the cap and baseplates topermit a pivotal connectionof the rack with a, supporting standard of that type usually employed.

The pocket-forming members 11 referred to are cut preferably from sheet metal, and bent into the shape illustrated in Figs. 2 and 4. hen thus formed, these members are of approximately V-shaped cross-section and are each characterized by two symmetrically arranged side portions 18 which constitute the division walls between the pockets of the rack. These side portions 18 are integrally connectedat their bottoms 1'9, and are bent outwardly a short distance at their top edges 20 to provide, when the members are assembled in the frame, aslightly diverging opening to each of the pockets formed by the members. It is desirable to havethe edges 20 flushwith the two faces of the frame as defined by the faces of the channeled uprights 13, and to accomplish this the ends of the edges 20 are cut away at 21 I to clear the uprights 13. bers 11 is provided, at its ends'and a short distance above its bottom, with inwardly bent lips 22 which form curved seats 23 and lateral spacing abutments 24 for supporting and positlomng 1n proper relation thereto the bottom and side portions of the member located next thereabove.

In assembling the rack the members 11 are arranged in interfitting relation with the bottoms 19 of each seated on the lips 22 of the member located next therebelow. The

Each of the memends if the stacked members are then inserted within the retaining channels of the uprights 13, and the cap and base plates at tached. A corrugated strip may be placed within the channel of the base plate 15, as shown in Fig. 2, for the purpose of properly positioning the lowermost pocketforming member. VVhenthus assembled within the frame the members 11 are prevented from disassociation, and serve to pro vide pockets on both faces of the rack having slightly resilient single division walls adapted to exert a holding friction on the contents of the pockets while 'accommo dat ing, in each pocket, one or a plurality of data cards with equal facility.

In those racks intended for pivotal mounting on a standard, the cap and base plates may be provided, on the ends thereof opposite to the aperturedears 17, with guard members 26 adapted to serve as spacing projections or buffers between the racks when the same are swung into contact with each other.

In Fig. 5 is shown a modified form of the rack of this invention wherein a single-face rack is presented by the employment of a frame equipped with a backing member 27 and retaining strips 28 spaced forwardly from the said backing member. The pocketforming members 29 are positioned in the frame between the strips and backing memher, and are each formed to correspond in shape to one of the halves of the previously described pocket-forming members 11 were the same separated by cutting along the curved bottoms 19 thereof. The members 29 are arranged in the frame in the same in terfitting relation as the members 11, the lips 30 with their seats 31 and lateral spacing abutments 32 on each member serving to support and to properly position the member located next thereabove.

I claim: v

1. In a card-holding rack, a frame, a plurality of superposed pocket-forming members arranged therein, and means carried by each of the members for engaging with the lower portion of the member located next thereabove and forming the support of the same.

2. In a card-holding rack, a frame, a plurality of superposed pocket-forming members removably arranged therein, and means carried by each of the members for engaging with the lower portion of the member lo cated next thereabove and forming the support of the same.

I11 a eard-holding rack, a frame, a plurality of superposed pocket-forming members arranged therein, and means carried by each of the members below I the exposed pocket edgeof the same for engaging with the lower portion of the member located next thereabove and forming the support of the same.

4. In a card-holding rack, a frame, a plurality of superposed members arranged therein to form pockets separated by single division walls, and means carried by each of the members for forming the support of the member located next thereabove.

5. In a card-holding rack, a frame, a plurality of superposed members arranged therein to form pockets having closed bottoms and separated by single division Walls, and means carried by each of the members for forming the support of the member located next thereabove.

6. In a card-holding rack, a frame, and a plurality of superposed pocket-forming members arranged therein, each of said members being formed from a sheet of stiff material and characterized by an inwardly bent portion to form the pocket bottom and spaced inwardly bent lips terminating above said bottom to form the supporting means of the member located next thereabove.

7. In a card-holding rack, a frame, a plurality of superposed members arranged therein to form pockets on both sides of the frame, and means carried by each of the members for engaging with the lower portion of the member located next thereabove, and forming the support of the same. 8. In a card-holding rack, a frame, a plurality of superposed members of substan tially V-shape d cross-section removably arranged therein in interfitting relation to form pockets on both sides of the frame, and means carried by each of the members for forming the support of the member located next thereabove.
