  • Publication number: 20190053622
    Abstract: The specification discloses a method for containing spills on shelving and the like, and the resulting support members made in accordance with the method, by providing the generally flat top surface of a support with a hydrophobic surface which is arranged in a spill containment pattern and which is generally in the plane of the top surface of the support. The majority of the top surface of the support consists of one or more spill containment areas which are of a non-hydrophobic nature and which are bounded by the hydrophobic surfaces, such that spills on the shelving collect in the non-hydrophobic spill containment area or areas and are prevented from spreading by the hydrophobic surfaces.

  • Publication number: 20150260412
    Abstract: A pattern of high temperature hydrophobic surfaces for use with cooking and baking appliances, such as kitchen cooktops, stoves and oven interior walls. The pattern of hydrophobic surfaces confines overflowed liquids to the enclosed non-hydrophobic surface areas and away from protected areas, such as around burner control knobs, burner surfaces, cal rods, fan and vent openings, countertops, and the like. The hydrophobic materials used are able to withstand and effectively repel liquids at high operating temperatures.

  • Patent number: 8944621
    Abstract: A shelving assembly (500) includes a pair of sheet metal sidearms (506) having ladder connectors (508) releasably coupled to cantilever ladders (504). An LED strip (520) having spaced apart LEDs is positioned immediately behind a refrigerator shelf (516). A rear form (522) is used for securing the LED strip (520) to a refrigerator shelf (516). The LED strip (520) is powered through electrical contact modules (524) which conductively connect to low voltage power strips (534).
