  • Publication number: 20200015586
    Abstract: A cabinet assembly includes a cabinet body, a tiltable wire shelf, and a shelf mounting system. The cabinet body has a base, a top, and a pair of sides that extend between the base and the top to define an inner volume. The tiltable wire shelf is mounted in the inner volume of the cabinet body and includes a front bar, a rear bar, a pair of side bars, and a plurality of crossbars. The shelf mounting system supports the tiltable wire shelf on the cabinet body and comprises a pivot coupling between the cabinet body and the front or rear bar of the tiltable wire shelf, and a sliding coupling between the cabinet body and one of the side bars of the tiltable wire shelf. The couplings cooperate to provide tiltable adjustment of the tiltable wire shelf relative to the cabinet body over a range of angles.

  • Patent number: 10349740
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an insulated transport cabinet for food or the like having a housing, a door, a hinge cover, and a hinge pin. The housing includes a barrel portion adjacent to a front surface and extending between top and bottom ends. The barrel portion includes a longitudinal axis, a gap separating the barrel portion into top and bottom barrel sections having first and second passageways aligned with the longitudinal axis, respectively. The door includes a hinge adjacent to a side surface and including a third passageway aligned with the longitudinal axis. An inner surface of the hinge pin complements an outer surface of the hinge. The hinge pin passes through the first, third, and second passageways. The door pivots about the longitudinal axis between an open position and a closed position. The longitudinal axis is offset from a center plane of the door.
