Indiana Patent of the Month – July 2021

SpaceGuard Products is a leading manufacturer of woven and welded wire partitions or area guarding products – with the development of safety panels, mezzanine rails, storage lockers and more. They have developed unique features like their exclusive UNI-MESH woven diamond mesh partitions and their BeastWire Mesh Guarding. The entire industry sees limitations in storage racks as they often require time consuming installation, complex designs, and inconvenient installation environments. SpaceGuard Products has developed another improved  bracket to enhance installation and simplicity.

They designed a drop-in bracket which is readily installed without tools, making the installation process significantly easier. The design makes it applicable for a variety of devices including rack guards, screen guards, and more. The design has an upper and lower rack engagement tab which provides great structural strength to support whichever rack is attached. The attachment members on the engagement tabs use a lock pin hole to provide a secure positioning when the rack is attached. The lock pin also has a stabilizing leg coupled to a lock pin head, so that the leg fits through the hole and the lock pin head does not. This increases stability and enhances reliability of the bracket system.. With a simple, non-tool installation and greater structural support, SpaceGuard Products can increase efficiency, saving both time and money.
