Nov. 21, 1961 A. INGVARTSEN STACKING FRAMEWORK STRUCTURE FOR A PALLET 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Filed Aug. 16, 1960 INVENTOR. fl/Q/VE I/VGV/h? TSEN M ATfO/Q/VE/ United States Patent 3,009,674 I v STACKIN G FRAMEWORK STRUCTURE FOR A PALLET Arne Ingvartsen, Agervang 64, Lyngby,

Copenhagen, Denmark Filed Aug. 16, 1960, Ser. No. 49,864 7 Claims priority, application Denmark Aug. 18, 1959 4 Claims. (Cl. 248-120) The present invention relates to a stacking framework structure for a pallet and has for its object to provide such a framework structure which affords a much greater rigidity than has been obtained by prior art framework structures.

It is also an object of the invention to provide such a stacking framework structure with corner mountings which are quickly and easily detachable so that assembly and disassembly of the framework on the pallet may be effected more quickly and more conveniently than it has been possible with the hitherto known framework structures.

These special advantages are in accordance with the invention obtained by a stacking framework structure comprising four detachable side walls, each side wall consisting of two vertical tubes interconnected by means of a horizontal bar secured to the upper end of the vertical tubes, the side walls being attached to the pallet by inserting the vertical tubes into holes at the corners of the pallet, said holes being so arranged that in each corner of the pallet a vertical tube of one side wall is placed in alignment with the plane of the adjacent side wall, the side wall-s being interconnected by means of detachable corner mountings, each comprising a horizontal plate with two pins, each of which is extending downwardly into one of the pipes of the two adjacent side walls, said plate having a downwardly bent flange bearing upon the outer side of the horizontal bar of the side walls having a tube in alignment with the plane of the adjacent side wall, said plate having further a downwardly bent flange bearing upon the inner side of said adjacent side wall.

This corner mounting may be directly disposed in each corner of a framework structure by inserting the two pins into the two adjacent pipes, and in this manner the effective rigid connection between the two adjacent side walls is immediately obtained and, furthermore, a pallet may be placed on the top of the framework structure so as to rest on the four corner mountings, i.e. on the horizontal plates thereof.

The invention shall be further described in the following with reference to the accompanying drawings and in the claims at the end of the specification.

In the drawings:

FIG. 1 shows a perspective view of a pallet with a stacking framework structure in accordance with the invention; FIG. 2 shows in a bigger scale one corner mounting for said stacking framework structure, and FIG. 3 shows a plan view of the structure shown in FIG. 2.

FIG. 1 shows a pallet A being at each corner provided with holes 13 and 14 for inserting vertical tubes and 4 respectively of said walls in a stacking framework structure. Four side walls are provided, each consisting of the two vertical tubes 4 and 5 being interconnected by means of a horizontal bar 6 at the top of the tubes 4 and 5. The holes 13 and 14 are so arranged that one vertical tube 4 or 5 of one side Wall is placed in alignment with the adjacent side wall and that the two tubes 4 and 5 in each corner are interconnected by means of a corner mounting B which is clearly shown in FIG. 2.

In FIG. 2 a corner mounting is illustrated comprising a horizontal plate 1 provided with two downwardly extending pins 2 and 3. The corner mounting is disposed 3,009,674 Patented Nov. 21, 1961 in the corner of a stacking framework stnlcture, a corner of each of the two side walls forming the corner of the framework structure being shown in FIG. 1. Each of the two side walls has a vertical pipe 4 and 5 respectively welded to a tubular horizontal bar 6. I v p The plate 1 has a downwardly bent flange 8 bearing upon the outer side of the bar. On its inner side the plate 1 is provided with a downwardly bent flange 9 bearing upon the bar 6 of the other side wall. The flange 9 is so arranged and has such a length that one end thereof bears upon the inner side of the bar 6 directly opposite the downwardly bent flange 8, and it will be directly understood that these various flanges together with the pins will form a very effective interconnection between the two side walls.

Moreover, along its outer edges the plate 1 is provided with upwardly bent flanges 11 and 12 forming guides for a pallet to be placed on top of the plate 1.

I claim:

1. A stacking framework structure in combination with a pallet, comprising four detachable side walls, each side wall consisting of two vertical tubes interconnected by means of a horizontal bar secured to the upper end of the vertical tubes, the side walls being attached to the pallet by inserting the vertical tubes into holes at the corners of the pallet, said holes being so arranged that in each corner of the pallet a vertical tube of one side wall is placed in alignment with the plane of the adjacent side wall, the side walls being interconnected by means of detachable corner mountings, each comprising a horizontal plate with two pins each of which is extending downwardly into one of the pipes of the two adjacent side walls, said plate having a downwardly bent flange bearing upon the outer side of the horizontal bar of one of the adjacent side walls, said plate having further a downwardly bent flange bearing upon the inner side of said side wall.

2. A stacking framework structure in combination with a pallet, comprising four detachable side walls, each side wall consisting of two vertical tubes interconnected by means of a horizontal bar secured to the upper end of the vertical tubes, the side walls being attached to the pallet by inserting the vertical tubes in holes at the corners of the pallet, said holes being so arranged that in each corner of the pallet a vertical tube of one side wall is placed in alignment with the plane of the adjacent side wall, the side walls being interconnected by means of detachable corner mountings, each comprising a horizontal plate with two pins each of which is extending downwardly into one of the pipes of the two adjacent side walls, said plate having a downwardly bent flange bearing upon the outer side of the horizontal bar of the side wall having one tube in alignment with the plane of the adjacent side wall, said plate having further a downwardly bent flange, the two ends of which are each bearing upon the inner side of the two adjacent side walls.

3. In a stacking framework structure in accordance with claim 1, each of said plates being further provided with upwardly bent flanges along the edges of the plate positioned along the outer side of the adjacent side walls.

4. In a stacking framework structure in accordance with claim 2, each of said plates being further provided with upwardly bent flanges along the edges of the plate positioned along the outer side of the adjacent side walls.
