This invention relates to store ?xtures with
particular reference to the wall paneling and its
associated ?xtures developed for standardized use
and applicable to any type building construction
such as used in stores, soda fountains, meat mar
kets and the like, and the object of the invention
is to provide an improved wall paneling so de
signed and constructed that it may be readily
for erection and the attachment of various ac
cessories. The panels or sections 20 are applied
to a framework 2| consisting of horizontal and
vertical members 22 and 23 with the vertical
grounds toe nailed to the horizontal grounds as 5
shown in Figure 10 and with extra horizontal
grounds 24 such as required depending on the ac
cessories employed in a particular construction or
attached to a wall surface or may be readily re
10 moved therefrom upon termination of a lease or
at any time a change in the interior of the store
is desired.
A further object is to provide an improved construction which not only adds to the general ap15 pearance of the store ?nish which makes it more
attractive to persons entering the store but will
be'economical in construction cost and the salva
installation, The framework or grounds are se
cured ?rmly to the wall surface by any suitable 10
means depending on the type of Wall to Which it
is applied. However, in some instances, the use
of the frame-work or grounds is not necessary as
the panels may be secured directly to the wall sur
faces, especially in the case of wood walls or the 15
bility is incomparable to other types of construc
tion as heretofore used. Other advantages and
objects will become apparent as the description
Referring to the accompanying drawings which

erence characters indicate similar parts.

The molding is formed of ?exible material pref
erably stainless steel and ‘is provided with an out

A decorative cornice molding 26 of such de
sign as shown in Figure 5 is mounted on top of the
panels 20 and secured by means of the pilaster
cap 29 formed of any suitable material and held
in place by the screws 30 driven into the top
ground 22. The caps are usually positioned at 4,
the upper ends of alternate vertical pilasters 28,
however, in some cases they may be disposed at
the upper end of each pilaster, if desired. The
cornice molding 26 isprovided with a groove 3|
Figure 12, a view showing a, modi?ed form of
securing device.
In the drawings reference character 20 indicates the sections of paneling which are formed
in sheets of any suitable material but preferably
5;, formed of composition board or sheet steel of
any desired color, either painted, baked enamel
or porcelain enameled ?nish, the latter however,
is preferred since it is more durable and presents
a better appearance. The panels are completely
' 60 fabricated to exact size with all holes drilled ready
which serves as a price or sign holder. The sec- 50
tions of the cornice are usually of such lengths as
to form a joint at the joint between the panels
The Panels 20 are drilled to accommodate var
10115 accessories Such as mirI‘OrS 32 and the
shelves 33 of the usual conventional type such as 55
disclosed in Figures 1 and 3 and which are secured
by means of appropriate fasteninss to harmonize
with the general scheme of design.
, In the structure shown in Figure 2, the panels
34 are of short heights and are mounted just 60
The strips 21 are provided with out
above the display bins 35 and the fresh vege
table racks 36. The grounds or framework 31
at the top of the panels are sloped upwardly at
an angle to the front and are provided with a
series of mirrors 38 secured in the same manner
as the panels 20 in Figure 1 with the same type
of cornice and pilaster molding. The ends 39 of
the wall shelving extend forward as in the usual
type of shelving employed in stores and is
10 trimmed along its front edge with a pilaster
molding and cap as shown.
The display bins and racks are of the usual
type shown and are trimmed to correspond to the
color scheme and design employed throughout
15 the installation.
The shelf 56 and the shelves 4| are secured
in the following manner: Before the retaining
strip 21 is secured in place, the brackets 42
formed of two strips of strap metal, one strip of
20 which is positioned along the framework at the
juncture of adjacent panels with its upper end
projecting forward and sloping downwardly and
the other strip set at an angle to join the ends of
the ?rst are securely ?xed by any suitable fas
tening means to the framework. If desired, the
brackets may be formed of a single piece of strap
The shelves 4| are formed of sheets of
metal or any other suitable material which are
bent upwardly along their rear edges and down
30 wardly along front edges as shown in Figures 1
and 3. The shelf 56 is formed of sheet metal
which is bent upwardly along its front and rear
edges with the front edge further bent down
wardly and then upon itself to form a slot 51
35 which serves as price tag or sign holder, as clear
ly shown in Figure 7. The shelf 55‘ is securely
and below the shelves 4| or where no shelves the
strips are mounted along the entire joint there
between. The pilaster molding 28 of proper
lengths are then snapped into place to complete
the joints. The cornice molding 26 is then ap
plied and retained in place by means of the caps
29 which are secured by the screws 30 driven in
the ground 22. The accessories, are then at
tached in place, the kind and number depending
entirely on the individual installation. Mirrors 10
32 may be used in the more expensive installa
tions either secured on the paneling or inserted
therein, but the construction and general princi
ple of operation and installing is the same, re
gardless of the material used, or the color scheme
and ?nish employed. In the event it becomes de
sirable to remove the paneling the operation is
simple and the material is not damaged in the
least and may be readily used again thus saving
both in material and the cost of construction.
In cheaper constructions the panels may be se
cured by means of a molding 59 formed of suit
able material bent in the manner clearly shown
in Figure 12 and secured direct to the surface on
which the panels are mounted. The molding 59 25
is secured by means of nails 60 or any other
suitable fastening means and the edges of the
panels are inserted in the slots formed on each
side of the molding. The molding in this con
struction serves to hold the panels in place and 30
to cover the joint between the panels.
The paneling is easily maintained due to the
simplicity of construction and the design of the
associated ?xtures and it may be added to or
changed to suit various arrangements.
It may
be further seen that the construction results
