Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9918767A2] Disclosed is a modular expandable supporting frame (1) for exhibiting goods, which can be mounted as a shelf, a table or a platform with display elements (3, 4). It comprises at least one framework (10), on both external sides of which side supports (2) stand, between which at least one display element (3) is built-in which resembles a wire grid. The framework (10) can be extended with further framework elements (10) supplemented with additional side supports (2) and contiguous display elements. Said side supports (2) are designed either in the form of ladders and comprised of spaced parallel vertical feet, between which spaced bars (21) are fixedly mounted. Or special feet are used. Between two ladder-type contiguous side supports (2) or between the pairs of feet (20) at least one wire assembly element (3) extends which has in its external corners fixedly mounted attachments (60) enabling said assembly element to be releasably fastened to the feet (20). The bars (21) of the display elements (4) to be inserted with their junction members are suspended on the ladder-type side supports (2). Said junction members (40, 40') of contiguous elements (4) are adjoining and present segments designed so as to fit into each other, thereby providing the opportunity to obtain certain decorative effects with protection profiles, cover plates and good containers laid on the supporting frame (1), which are realized in a semi-transparent material. The main features of the inventive supporting frame (1) are stability, assembly readiness in a plurality of embodiments and a fancy design.
