Abstract: A readily removable and replaceable acoustical pad for an interior space dividing system of the type having horizontal and vertical frames forming generally rectangular pad receiving windows with the upper horizontal frame member of each window having a depending flange or flanges forming a tongue, each pad having an upwardly opening central groove along the top edge adapted to mate with the tongue whereby the pad may be inserted in the window by first mating the groove with the tongue and then pivoting the pad to a vertical position into a snug fit in the window. The pad is preferably foam and fabric covered to deform along the bottom, vertical and groove spaced top edges to obtain the snug fit, and includes a frame, the upper element of which forms a V-shape groove. A metal septum is centrally positioned in the frame with fiberglass pads on each side, within the frame. Options include one half size foam covers with tack boards either directly fabric covered or with a one quarter size foam cover option.
Abstract: Hanging components of the enclosed or open shelf type for an interior space dividing system utilize a disappearing pivoting hook at the upper rear corners and a pivoting mounting bracket or foot at the lower rear corners, the latter being pivoted to two alternative positions depending on the supporting horizontal frame element of the system or elevation at which the component is supported. Such hooks and mounting brackets are for the most part enclosed within the back-to-back face plates of the vertical panels of the components, such panel forming face plates having rounded edges forming a peripheral slot, such slot being enlarged to accommodate the pivoting movement of the disappearing hook and mounting foot. The face plates are readily assembled and disassembled by an internal tongue and slot connection at the front and by fasteners at the rear which extend through collars forming the pivots for the hook and bracket.

Abstract: A combination space dividing wall panel and elongated, fluorescent lighting fixture wherein the fluorescent lighting fixture is mounted a predetermined distance above the upper edge of the wall panel by a pair of lighting fixture support rods, each having a threaded stud at the bottom of such rod, which is threadingly inserted into the upper part of a metal post attached to and supporting an end of a space dividing wall panel. The support rods rotatably engage spaced, slotted apertures in the underside of the lighting fixture to provide for either linear alignment of the elongated lighting fixture with respect to a space dividing wall panel, or, an angular relationship with respect to interconnected, angularly related wall panels.
Abstract: A desk or like unit with full duct internal wire management includes rectangular horizontal top and vertical wood support panels therefor, and longitudinally aligned elongate enclosure brackets cooperating with the wood panels to form an elongate horizontal wiring duct or ducts extending the length or width of the desk, or both, for hidden storage of wires or the like. The top panel has an elongate access opening therein extending co-extensively with the wiring duct to facilitate handling and feeding of wires therein, and a removable snap-in closure receivable in such access opening normally closes the same. The closure, which is so profiled to form a continuation of the top surface of the desk, includes a number of notches at selected positions therealong for egress of wires from the wiring duct to the top surface of the top panel for connection to an appliance supported thereon.
