Title: Shelf construction

Abstract: A shelf construction for use in gondola systems having spaced vertical uprights comprises a shelf floor which is removably mounted to front and rear rails. The rails are in turn supported by shelf brackets projecting from the uprights. The front and rear rails are provided with horizontal slots to accept the shelf floor and vertical slots along their lengths to accommodate shelf dividers which can be used to segregate product placed on the shelf. The shelf brackets are preferably tilted forwardly downwardly, the shelf floor having a low-friction surface to allow arrayed and displayed products to migrate towards the front edge of the shelf, making them more accessible for observation and removal.
