Jan. 30, 1951 D. J. BUCKLEY v MATERIAL STORAGE RACK Filed Aug. 2 3, 1946 Patented Jan. 30,1951

' UNITED s'rn'ras.v PATENT OFFICE MATERIAL STORAGE RACK Daniel J. Buckley, Canton, Mass. Application August 23, 1942;, Serial No. 692,573

- 'l he above and other obiects may be attained by employing this invention which embodies among its features a pair of beams adapted to rest in spaced parallel relation on the floor, of a storage building, each beam comprising spa ed parallel channel members with their flanges disposed outwardly and spacers secured to t e webs of the channel members to form longitud nally spaced sockets, and stakes detachably fitted into the sockets to separate one stock pile from another and to support the sides of the stock piles.

In the drawings,

Figure l is a perspective view of a material rack embodying the features of this invention showing a stock pile supported therein,

Figure 2 is a fragmentary perspective view of one of the beams, and illustrating a modified form of stake holding socket,

Figure 3 is a fragmentary perspective view similar to Figure 2 of a further modification, and

Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view through one of the beams illustrated in Figure 1.

Referring to the drawings in detail. my improved material rack comprises a pair of spaced parallel beams each designat d generally in and comprising spaced parallel channel members H the flanges I 2 of which are disposed outwardly as will be readily understood upon reference to the drawings. In the preferred. form of the invention the webs of the chann l members are provided with rows of longitudinally spaced apertures IS the pur ose of which will be more fully hereinafter explained.

A transversely extending spacer l4 extends between the spaced channel members in alignment withjeach pair of openings l3 formed therein, and these spacers H! are secured in proper position between the channels I l by forming through the openings l3 welding plugs l5. As illustrated in Figure 1, the spacers I 4 are spaced from one another a distance substantially equal to the distance between the webs of the channel m mbers ll of each beam in so as to form a longitudinal row of spaced sockets in which the lower ends of stakes l6 are adapted to be jreceived. In the embodiment illustrated in Figure 1, the stakes 15 comprises I-beam sections which may be fitted into the sockets, and form spacers which separate one stock pile from another and also support the sides of the stock piles against collapse.

In the modification illustrated in Figure 2, each beam designated generally I! comprises a pair of spaced channel members 18 the flanges l9 of which are turned outwardly as previously described; Instead of the flat plate spacers previously used I employ t bular soacers 2'1 which are arran' ed in a single longitudinal row between the webs of the channel members IR and these spacers are welded at diametrically opposite points to one another and to the webs of the channel members I 3. It will thus be seen that a plurality of longitudinally spaced tubular sockets 2| are formed in which tubular st kes 22 which may take the form of a standard pipe are received. Obviously. the stakes may be moved to different positions longitudinally of the beam l1 so as to accommodate stock piles of different sizes.

In the modification illustrated in Figure 3, a beam desi nated generally 23 like those previously described comprises a pair of channel members 24 arranged in s aced parallel relation with the flanges 25 thereof dis osed outwardly, but instead of the spacers previously described, I employ spacers 26 each of which comprises a short section of an I-beam the flanges 2! of which are welded at their ends to opposite webs of the channels 24 in order to form spaced sockets 28 for the reception ofstakes, similar to the stakes I 6. above described.

In operation, it will be understood that the stakes are set in their respective sockets of the beams Ill, a distance from one another sufficient to accommodate the stock pile of material to be su ported. Obviously, as the pile decreases in size the stakes may be moved closer together in order properly to support the stock piles, and keep a plurality of il s occupying the rack separat d fnom one another.

While in the foregoing there has been shown and described the preferred embodiment of this invention it is to be understood that minor changes in the details of construction, combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

I claim:

1. A storage rack adapted to support stock piles of elongated material in spaced relation to a floor which includes a pair of beams adapted to rest in spaced parallel'relation on the floor, each beam comprising spaced parallel channel members with their flanges disposed outwardly and spacers secured to the webs of the channel members to form longitudinally spaced sockets, and stakes detachably fitted into the sockets to separate one stock pile from another and to support 5 the sides of the stock piles.

2. A storage rack adapted to support stock piles of elongated material in spaced relation to a floor which includes a pair of beams adapted. to rest in spaced parallel relation on the floor, each beam comprising spaced parallel channel members with their flanges disposed outwardly, and a longitudinal row of tubular spacers welded to one another and to the webs to form longitudinally spaced sockets, and stakes detachably fitted in said sockl5 ets to separate one stock pile from another and to support the sides of the stock piles.

3. A storage rack adapted to support stock piles of elongated material in spaced relation to a floor which includes a pair of beams adapted to rest in spaced parallel relation on the floor, each beam comprising spaced parallel channel members with their flanges disposed outwardly, and. short lengths of longitudinally spaced I-beam stock, the flanges of which are welded to the webs of the channel member to form longitudinally spaced sockets and stakes detachably fitted into the sockets to separate one stock pile from another and to support the sides of the stock piles.

4. A storage rack adapted to support stock piles of elongated material in spaced. relation to a floor which includes a pair of beams adapted to rest in spaced parallel relation on the floor, each beam comprising spaced parallel channel members with their flanges disposed outwardly and spacers secured to the webs of the channel members to form longitudinally spaced sockets.

5. A storage rack adapted to support stock piles of elongated material in spaced relation to a floor which includes a pair of beams adapted to rest in spaced parallel relation on the floor, each beam comprising spaced parallel channel members with their flanges disposed outwardly, and a longitudinal row of tubular spacers welded to one another and to the webs to form longitudinally spaced sockets.

6. A storage rack adapted to support stock piles of elongated material in spaced relation to a floor which includes a pair of beams adapted. to rest in spaced parallel channel members with their flanges disposed outwardly, and short lengths of longitudinally spaced I-beam stock, the flanges of which are welded to the webs of the channel member to'form longitudinally spaced sockets.
