SHELF EDGING
Edward Kari'iol, Great Neck, N. Y.
Application September 15, 1937, Serial No. 163,899
(Cl. lidw-10)
15 Claims.
This invention relates to shelf edging and,
while adapted for general application, is particu
larly useful in connection with shelf edgings
made in whole or in part of paper.
1
The object of the invention is to provide a
shelf `edging of `novel and pleasing appearance
which may be economically manufactured and
will hold its shape 'well when placed on a shelf.
The edging of this invention has a bound or ñn
1
ished upper edge, formed by folding a projecting
marginal extension of one facial ply over the
upper edges of a plurality of other plies and
securing it in face-abutting <relation with the
other facial ply, preferably by an adhesive. The
15 folded over marginal extension of the one facial
ply may be substantially flush with the exposed
face of the latter ply or otherwise, and the plies
may be embossed or provided with perforated and
printed ornamentation, or both, to produce high
20 ly ornamental and pleasing designs.
It is of importance in the present invention
that, when the plies are assembled, one of the
facial plies is offset to provide a recess into
_ which -the marginal extension of the other facial
ply is received. This offset has a pronounced
strengthening effect upon the upper margin of
the edging and tends to hold the upper edge
straight against the front edge of a shelf and
preclude buckling. I am thus able, by the pres
ai ent invention, to produce a highly efficient shelf
edging with marked economies, while the result
ing structure possesses the mechanical require
ments for a nice tailored nt when placed on the
shelf.
The structure is such, moreover, as to permit
of an almost unlimited choice of designs with
out appreciably increasing the cost of manufac
ture.
Features of the invention, other than those
im: adverted to, will be apparent from the herein
after detailed description and claims, when read
in conjunction with the accompanying drawing.
The accompanying drawing illustrates differ
ent practical embodiments of the invention, but
the constructions therein shown are to be un
derstood as illustrative, only, and not as defining
the limits of the invention.
Figure l is a front elevation of a three ply
edging embodying the present invention.
Figure 2 is a section perspective taken on the
line Z-‘-2 of Figure l. `
Figure 3 shows short lengths of the several
plies and illustrating the manner in which they
i are formed prior to assembling.
Figure e is a View similar to Figure 2, but
showing a modified form of the invention.
Figure 5 shows a further modified form of the
invention.
While the edging of this invention may embody Ul
three or more plies of material, I have chosen
three plies as thoroughly satisfactory in the pro
duction of an economical and thoroughly ef
ñcient structure. In the showing of Figures 1_3,
l designates the back ply, 2 the intermediate 10
ply and 3 the front ply. The back ply is adapted
to be folded over the 'upper edges of the other
two plies along a fold line indicated at 4. As
shown in Figure 3, the body oi the back ply l
projects downwardly from the fold line ¿l for the
desired overall width or” the edging and it is
provided at its top with a marginal extension
5 which projects a sufficient distance above the
fold line to provide an adequate flap for folding
over the upper edges of the other plies. The
free edge of this extension may be made straight
or may be of any suitable configuration. For the
purpose of illustration, it is shown as serrated
at E.
'
The intermediate piy is adapted to be secured
in face abutting relation to the back ply. It is
shown as extending downwardly to the lower edge
of the back ply, although it may extend for a
greater or lesser distance in this direction. It,
however, terminates at its upper edge short of the 30
fold line t’. `a distance about the same as the
distance which the extension 5 projects beyond
the fold line d, so that,- when the plies i and 2
are adhesively secured together in face abutting
relation, as indicated by the adhesive 'I in Fig
ure 2, the extension 5 will project beyond the
ply 2 a distance about twice the distance of the
upper edge 3 of the intermediate ply 2 from such
fold line. The front ply 3 is of a width to extend
from the fold line downwardly to an elevation 40
preferably short of the lower edges of the other
plies l and 2, as clearly shown in Figure 3.
In the structure thus far described, the several
plies are assembled at the elevation shown in
Figure 3. The ply 2 is iirst laid on the ply l at 45
the relative elevation shown, and the ply 3 is
then laid on the ply 2. The plies l and 2 are
racially secured together by gluing them through
out or `at spaced apart points, and the ply 3 may
be similarly secured in place. However, I pref
erably leave the ply Ii` loose below the upper
edge 8 of the intermediate ply, while the upper
margin of the ply 3 is glued to the body of the
back ply l below thefold line thereof. In some
cases the front ply 3 is secured along its upper

portion to the front face of the intermediate
ply 2. After the parts have been secured to
gether, as stated, the extension 5 of the back
ply is folded over the upper edge of the front ply
and secured in face abutting relation to the front
structure of Figures 1-3 may have the same kind
of a round fold at the fold line.
It will be noted that when the intermediate
ply is cut low and in spaced relation to the fold
ply. As this operation is carried out pressure line, this results in economies in stock from

If desired, I may apply relatively great pres

the back ply 26, while an intermediate ply 21

compressed to an extent as to cause said inter

indicated at I3 by virtue of the presence of the
opening of the perforations I I. This is accom
plished by pressing the front ply into the inter
mediate ply so as to form, in effect, a depression
therein bordered at its lower edge by a shoulder
I 4 at the lower edge of the front ply. At the
same time an embossed lower edge I5 may be
formed in both the intermediate and back plies
2 and I. When the parts are secured together
40 in this Way a relatively thin edging is produced
but one of marked strength and appreciable 1on
gitudinal stiffness, due to the reinforcing of the
upper edge by the folded over extension 5 and by
the presence of the offset I2. Also, when the
45 three ply structure at the upper margin of the
edging is glued together as stated, an unusually
stiff edge is provided which will hug the shelf
closely and allow the edging to hang with a
smooth tailored appearance. I wish it under
50 stood, however, that this pressure embossing is
optional and that I may make the edging Without
it if desired.
,
The structure shown in Figure 4 embodies a
modification of the invention as hereinbefore de
55 scribed. Here the offset portion I6 of the front
facial ply I 'I is made to terminate in distance
short of the fold line 4, so that, when the rnar
ginal extension I8 of the back ply I9 is folded
over, a part of this extension will come into face
60 abutting relation with the back ply, While the
rest of the extension will come into face abutting
relation with the upper margin of the front ply
I1. This arrangement produces two offsets or
beads 20 and 2I which impart a double reinforce
65 to the upper portion of the edging. The inter
mediate ply 22 terminates at the offset 2|, as in
the preceding ñgures.
Figure 4 shows the structure as made with
out the application of appreciable pressures and
70 with the parts glued together to hold them in
assembled relation with the upper edge of the
edging in the form of a relatively loose rolled or
round edge and with the parts glued together as
indicated by the solid black lines 23 in this flg
ure. It will of course be understood that the
description, the present invention is not restrict
