Abstract

Ofice equipment such as copiers and the like must occasionally be moved from one location to another. For those units which are mounted on split roller casters, movement across high pile rugs and rough uneven surfaces present special difficulties. One solution is to move the equipment on a rail system which incorporates an inverted 'T shaped rail to support and steer the roller casters in the direction in which the rails are laid. A path of infinite length may be created by coupling of rails or by moving rails to a forward position after they have been traversed.
