Indiana Patent of the Month – March 2023
Noble Industries, Inc. is one of the largest and most diverse metal fabricators in the Midwest. In 2019, Noble Industries created a product line for the home, garage and tool organization market. OmniWall is the most versatile wall organization system on the market. 18 gauge galvanneal steel wall panels and over 43 metal one piece accessories. Powder coated in 6 colors that match major hand tool brands, OmniWall meets all your garage organization needs.
Unlike traditional peg boards with limited orientation and bracket options, Noble Industries’ newly patented system features a planar mounting surface with an array of spaced-apart mounting slots that include both longitudinal and latitudinal options. This design allows for greater flexibility in bracket placement and orientation, so you can customize your display to fit your needs and available space.
Noble Industries also offers a panel assembly option that includes two panels with matching mounting slot configurations. When attached, the distance between the second and third column of mounting slots is equal to the distance between the first and second column of mounting slots. This allows for even greater customization and flexibility in organizing and displaying your items.
The brackets used with Noble Industries’ system are also designed with ease and versatility in mind. Each bracket includes a hook or peg for holding your items, as well as an upper and lower tab for attaching to adjacent mounting slots on the panel. The brackets can also be more securely attached using an optional attachment mechanism inserted through the mounting opening on the panel surface.
In addition to its practicality, the system is also aesthetically pleasing. It offers a variety of colors and sizes to choose from, allowing you to match your display to your personal style and decor.
