SHELF EDGING
Edward Karfiol, New York, N. Y.
Application March 17, 1936, Serial No. 69,294
6 Claims. (CI. 41—10)
This invention relates to shelf edgings with
or Without an associated shelf covering portion
adapted to overlie the upper surface of a shelf.
Such edgings are sold by the running yard and
are adapted to be secured, by the ultimate pur
chaser, to the front edge of shelving to produce
desired decorative effects.
Shelf edgings are made of various materials and
large quantities thereof are fabricated from strips,
laminated with respect to one another, so as to
embody a plurality of plies which are secured to
gether for a greater or lesser portion of the length
or width of the several plies to impart to the edg
ings sufficient body to permit them to be readily
15
handled and to enable them to properly maintain
their shape when secured to a shelf.
When a shelf edging is made of a plurality of
plies, the best results are obtained in use when
the edging is longitudinally reinforced or stiffened
in a manner to lend a fair degree of rigidity
thereto in order that it may better conform to the
edge of a shelf and present a tailored appearance.
I have found that an edging embodying a pin
rality of plies may be economically and satisfac
, 'torily reinforced and stiffened by folding upper
marginal portions of one or more plies over the
upper edges of one or more other plies and by fold
ing lower marginal portions of one or more plies
over the lower edges of one or more plies.
This procedure, while not con?ned to shelf
edgings having plies of any particular character,
has been found to give wholly unexpected results
in cases where the forward ply of the edging is
of openwork material which, in many instances,
35 may be of a frail and delicate nature having in
sufficient inherent strength unless properly rein
forced by an associated ply.
With such an edg
ing, the folding of the upper and lower marginal
portions of another ply or plies over the upper
and lower edges of the frail openwork ply, will
not only serve to properly support the edges of
the latter and mount the same in proper coop
erative relation with the other ply or plies, but
45
these folded over marginal portions will so re
inforce the whole structure as to give the stiff
ness desired and at the same time lend to the
whole a neat and distinctive appearance.
Features of the invention, other than those ad
50 verted to, will be apparent from the hereinafter
detailed description and claims, when read in
conjunction with the accompanying drawing.
The accompanying drawing illustrates different
practical embodiments of the invention, but the
constructions therein shown are to be understood
as illustrative, only, and not as de?ning the limits
of the invention.
Figures 1-7 of the drawing are fragmental per
spective views showing different illustrative forms
of the invention.
5'
It is felt that the invention will be more clearly
apparent by showing thickness of the material
entering into each ‘of the plies in the form of a
heavy dark line and by slightly spacing the parts
of the respective plies apart. By this treatment 10
the relation of the parts will be clearly apparent,
but it is to be understood that parts which are in
face opposing relation are, in fact, in face abut~
ting relation.

In Figures 1-7, the arrangement is such that l5‘
one marginal portion of one ply is folded forward
ly over an edge of another ply, while one mar~
ginal edge of another ply is folded back over the
marginal edge of a rear ply. The simplest form
of this arrangement is shown in Figure 1, where~
in the upper marginal portion 49 of the ply 56
is folded over the upper edge of the ply 5| which
has a lower marginal portion 52 folded under the
lower edge of the ply 50.
Figure 2 is the same as Figure 1, except that
there are four plies 53, 54, 55 and 56, the two rear "
plies having extensions which are folded over
the upper edges of the forward plies and the two
latter plies'having extensions which are folded
over the lower edges of the rear plies.
30
Figure 3 is the same as Figure 1, except that
the upper marginal portion of the front ply 51 is
folded over the upper edge of the back ply, while
the lower marginal portion of the back ply 58 is
folded over the lower edge of the front ply 51.
Figure 4 shows a front ply 59, a back ply 611
and an intermediate ply 6|. The upper marginal
portion 62 of the front ply 59 is folded over the
upper edges of the other two plies 60 and 6 I, while
the lower marginal portion 63 of the back ply 60 40
is folded over the lower edge of only the inter
mediate ply 6|.
The structure of Figure 5 is the same as in
Figure 1, except that there is one or more added
plies 64 secured to the front face of the ply 5!.
45
The structure of Figure 6 has substantially the
same arrangement as shown in Figure 5, except
that the forward ply 65, which corresponds to the
ply 64, is extended upwardly, so as to underlie the
folded over portion 49.
50
All of the structures which I have thus far
shown and described have been directed primarily
to edgings alone, but such edgings may, if desired,
be provided with extending ?aps adapted to over
lie the whole or a portion of the upper surface of 55

a shelf and form a shelf covering portion, with

claims.
Having thus fully described the invention, what
