Metro® Hang Rod Revisted

Cookware Hang Rod J-Hook Display

Metro® Open Wire Shelving Hang Rod Display for Cookware

Cookware Hang Rod J-Hook Display Detail MainThis display provided a better than usual opportunity to capture Hang Rod use in a Metro® Open Wire Shelving cookware display. With Metro being the pre-eminent restaurant storage system, it often finds its way into food related venues from cookware, to gourmet grocery, to movie restaurant sets. Outfitting like this allows hanging display within what would normally be a shelf unit. CLICK the thumbnail for a closer look.

Ball-End J-Hook for Hang Rod

Hanger Rod J-Hook Detail Main

I went back to this display as an afterthought to capture details of the Hanger Rod Safety-Ball-End J-Hook. The hook alone was worth the return trip. Quality wire forming, quality chrome plating, with a Ball-End flourish for a finial. I’d be proud to produce this item, and were Hanger Rod Hooks or J-Hooks given awards I am sure it would take best of show.

Nike® Non-Slip Shoe Pedestals

Nike Non-Slip Grips for Shoe Pedestals Main

I do so hate when a new pair of shoes fails to grip the floor surface (Ferragamo please, please take note). I would not expect slippage a problem in shoe display directly, but these Nike® non-slip grips for Shoe Pedestal insure there is no possibility of movement. They are a nice, quality touch to the pedestal design. But would these Nike sneaks not be fully non-slip from the get go? CLICK the gallery for display overviews.

End-of-Season S-Hooks in Plastic

End-of-Season Summer Lounger S-Hooks Detail

End-of-Season Summer Lounge S-Hook Detail

If you are selling-out Summer Lounger pads without frames, it unclutters the store to tuck them into a recessed gondola like this. See that a Plastic S-Hook in scale with the merchandise allows display from a simple All Wire Pegboard Scan Hook. The S-Hook was formidable in that it was a full solid Profile throughout, no indents or undercuts to save material. And what a boon to the buyer to have his own S-Hook for home storage. CLICK through the Gallery for close and distant views, RECOMMENDATION: Try Straight-Entry Hooksin spaces this tight under Gondola Shelves. Then you’ll be able to insert the Hooks without removing the overhanging Shelf beforehand.

Which Way Witch Halloween Directional for Fall

Which Way Witch Halloween DirectionalDirectional or not, from the look on her face, I would not trust this zany Halloween Witch for advice on any topic, except maybe Halloween fun.

Chrome Side Rail Design Repeats

Gleaming Wire Siderail Repeats Main

IRSG Shelving Systems EndcapHere the well known “Snake Design” of Metro-style Open Wire Shelving Systems repeals as a side rail. Look close to see that the orientation is inverted, and creates a better look, though unseen by all but the most fanatic fixture fan. This rail caught my eye because I didn’t think Metro Super Erecta Shelving included this style rail. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup and the signature of IRSG Shelving Systems. I am a Metro fan, but damn if this IRSG accessory isn’t a nice addition toi the line.

Declined Metro® Cookware Display

Declined Metro Open Wire Shelf REar View

Declined Metro Open Wire Shelf Main SqDeclined Open Wire Shelves have been a standard offering by Metro® for ages. I just do not see often in the retail circles in which I travel. This was a good example of the fixture, use, and merchandising thereof. Metro’s fame in restaurant fixtures adds an air of professionalism to cookware merchandising … hence its popularity in this channel. As with all open wire fixtures, it offer the advantages of shedding dust and dirt, and allowing light to penetrate to lower levels. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view.

Mr. Roboto at the Mall

Mr Roboto at the Mall Main

This in-Mall amusement triggered the track “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto” as played by Styx in my head. As an “attention compeller” or visual “hero”  it was a nice contrast to the normal car rides and other entertainments. When not engaged Mr. Roboto merrily twinkles his lights to attract playmates. Care to see what he can do? Plunk down a few quarters. CLICK the gallery to see sample light sequences.

BFF Doctor Makes Mall Housecalls

My Doctor Housecall at the Mall Overall

My Doctor Housecall at the Mall CloseUpAn extremely competitive healcare environment drives doctors and hospitals to compete for attention. How does a Hospital complete with a “Doc in the Box” clinic? Outreach as BFF in the Mall. More and more of late the Mall becomes a focus for Out of Home advertising. Maybe your outreach should be there and not at the Airport concourse or on a highway billboard? CLICK the thumbnail for a better look.

Defibrillator as Mall Amenity

I should be more observant for I am sure in this day and age, Defibrillators may decorate the walls of more retail establishments than I can count. Maybe they are tucked away from easy view and tampering, for this is one of few I have seen personally. I can only guess that the red light would warn of malfunction or lack of power, while the wire tailing below keeps the unit charged and ready for use. Many schools and such are required to maintain such emergency equipment. Does anyone know the regs as applied to retail and Malls? CLICK the thumbnail for another look. One thing I can admire from a retail fixture perspective is the self-frontstopped open wire ledge holding the equipment.
