Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9955601A2] A storage and transportation system for a container (10) comprising a framework of interfittable parts whereby the erected framework is of the same general shape as the interior of the container (10) but only slightly smaller so that the container walls provide the means for retaining the erected framework in position without any part of the framework being anchored thereto, said framework being constructed to support articles such as garments. The system comprises a plurality of pairs of stanchions (18) which are disposed vertically against a longer side walls of the container (10) and at a number of positions along the length of the container (10), cross rails (16) which are connected between each pair stanchions (18) across the width of the container (10) and cant rails (20) which are connected between separate stanchions (18) along the length of the container (10) to complete the framework. The cant rails (20) and cross rails (16) may be spring loaded at their ends.

[origin: WO9955601A2] A storage and transportation system for a container comprising a framework of interfittable parts which are sized to the container interior so that the erected framework is of the same general shape as the interior of the container, but only slightly smaller so that the container walls provide the means for retaining the erected framework in position without any part of the framework being anchored thereto, said framework being constructed to support articles such as garments. The system comprises a plurality of pairs of stanchions which are disposed vertically against the longer side walls of the container and at a number of positions along the length of the container, cross rails which are connected between each pair stanchions across the width of the container, and cant rails which are connected between separate stanchions along the length of the container to complete the framework. The cant rails and cross rails may be spring loaded at their ends to urge the stanchions against the side walls, and also to urge the stanchions positioned proximate the ends of the container against same. The framework is thus rigidly secured in the container only by means of the container walls against which the stanchions react by means of the spring loading.
