Click here for a printable version of this file

SECTION I - CLASS DEFINITION

This class includes built-up open framework structures designed to support articles. Racks in the nature of upright stands or standards carrying article supports are also included, and also self-supporting articles supports, frequently built up of sheet material.

The term "racks" includes frame structures and supports having flexible supporting elements, such as strands or straps, as the article-supporting elements.

SECTION II - LINES WITH OTHER CLASSES AND WITHIN THIS CLASS

For racks involving devices for holding rolls where the material on the roll can be wound or unwound therefrom by operation of the roll see Class 242, Winding, Tensioning, or Guiding. See also Class 226, Advancing Material of Indeterminate Length, for roll holders in which there are also involved devices for feeding or removing the material from the roll other than by operation of the roll, and Class 83, Cutting, in such cases where there is also involved means for cutting the material unrolled.
