  • Patent number: 11980307
    Abstract: A serving tray comprised of at least one synthetic material and an insert which provides a non-slip top surface of the serving tray. The textured relief is preferably made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) which allows a glass or other item to be placed on the serving tray without the item sliding or slipping while the tray is in motion. As the tray is being fabricated, the TPU is mechanically bonded with the top surface of the tray while a textured relief is simultaneously defined into the top surface. The textured relief provides adequate frictional force to an item being placed on the tray so as to substantially prevent its lateral movement. The tray also includes an inner support structure disposed on its inner surface. The inner support structure provides an upward facing edge which allows a plurality of trays to be easily and efficiently stacked or nested on one another.

  • Patent number: 11812847
    Abstract: A shelving system formed by a plurality of vertical posts and horizontal traverses held together through frictional engagement. Disposed between each lateral pair of posts is at least one traverse which includes a male frictional engagement member configured to engage with a removable female frictional engagement member disposed on each post. The post and traverse engage with each other so as to create a proportional or supportive reaction force in response to any shear force applied to the shelving system. Each of the female frictional engagement members has a tapered edge which forms a closely fitted coupling between the post and each traverse. Each of the female frictional engagement members may be selectively disposed in one of a plurality of positions along the height of each vertical post. The shelving system further includes top and bottom connectors, both of which also frictionally engage with the vertical posts.

    Abstract: A shelving system formed by a plurality of vertical posts and horizontal traverses held together through frictional engagement. Disposed between each lateral pair of posts are a pair of post connectors which include a female frictional engagement member configured to engage with a male frictional engagement member disposed on each post. The post and post connector engage with each other so as to create a proportional reaction force in response to any shear force applied to the shelving system. Disposed between each longitudinal pair of posts is at least one traverse which includes a collar configured to engage with one of a plurality of male components disposed along the height of the post. Each of the male components have a tapered shape which matches a tapered shape of a female aperture defined within the collar so as to form a closely fitted coupling between the post and each traverse.
