  • Patent number: 9750155
    Abstract: A rail adjustable mount adjusts a rail to support information handling system chassis with different depths in racks of different depths. The adjustable mount couples to a rack front with a sliding portion extending into the rack interior. The adjustable mount sliding portion slidingly engages a guide of the rail to allow adjustment of the rail relative to the rack so that a rail fits into a rack having a depth that is greater than the length of the rail's housing. A floating portion of the rail supports the rail at the rear of the rack and allows the rail position to float relative to the rear of the rack. A biasing device of the adjustable mount biases the rail towards the front of the rack to aid full extension and retraction of the rail at the rack.

  • Patent number: 8998009
    Abstract: Provided is a wall assembly for goods display constituted by horizontal tracks fixed to a wall body and disposed in a lateral direction at equal intervals, vertical posts disposed on the horizontal tracks and disposed in a vertical direction at equal intervals, an interval adjustment unit configured to couple the vertical post with respect to the horizontal track to adjust an interval, an insert member inserted into the vertical post in the vertical direction, and an outer panel coupled to the vertical post. Accordingly, even when flatness of the wall body is bad, the wall assembly can be instructed and the flatness of the panel after construction can be appropriately maintained so that an appearance of a wall surface can be excellently finished. In addition, since removal and exchange of only a damaged panel are easy when the outer panel is damaged, construction and exchange can be easily performed.

  • Patent number: 8985350
    Abstract: A storage system comprises a rack of multiple platforms connectable to one another in a first direction, where each of the platforms has segments that connect to one another along a direction other than the first direction, via a user-operable coupling. The platforms are preferably rectangular, and are connected at their long ends. The segments of each platform are also preferably rectangular, but they are connected along their long sides. In such embodiments, the connection between platforms is perpendicular to the length of the rack, while the connection between segments is parallel to the length of the rack. The segments of individual platforms are preferably coupled together with snap fit connections, and supported from their undersides by transverse supports, and the transverse supports are supported from their undersides by longitudinal supports via recesses on the segments. The transverse supports are preferably perpendicular to the longitudinal supports.
