  • Patent number: 10104985
    Abstract: A variable shelf organizer system for displaying merchandise thereon including a standard track glide floor member, a plurality of removably adjustable divider members and a front wall member. The divider members and front wall member are engageable with the floor member and when multiple divider members are engaged therewith, product channels are formed therebetween for holding and securing products of varying size and shape on the floor member. The width of the shelf system may be increased or decreased by joining or detaching similarly constructed floor members in a side-by-side relationship and the length of the shelf system may be increased by attaching one or more floor extension members to the floor members.

  • Patent number: 10098478
    Abstract: A variable shelf organizer system for displaying merchandise thereon including a roller glide floor member, a standard track glide floor member, a plurality of removably adjustable divider members and a front wall member. The divider members and front wall member are engageable with both floor members and when multiple divider members are engaged with either floor member, product channels are formed therebetween for holding and securing products of varying size and shape on either floor member. The roller glide floor member is best suited for heavier packaged products such as six-pack or twelve pack products and the track glide floor member is best suited for standard products. The width of the shelf system may be increased or decreased by joining or detaching similarly constructed floor members in a side-by-side relationship and the length of the shelf system may be increased by attaching one or more floor extension members to the floor members.

  • Patent number: 6715621
    Abstract: A product module for supporting and merchandising product containers therefrom including at least one elongated product channel defined by a pair of laterally spaced upstanding side walls and a substantially planar product supporting floor portion extending therebetween, each product channel having at least one front member spaced above the floor portion and partially bridging the product channel side walls, the at least one front member including a first wall portion extending from one of the product channel side walls and a second wall portion extending from the other of the product channel side walls. The first and second front wall portions define a space therebetween and are sufficiently resilient so as to allow a lead product container positioned within a product channel to be pulled therethrough to facilitate removal of the lead product container from the product channel.
