Grand Junction firm earns patent for storage system

A Grand Junction company has received a patent for its unique storage system.

Glideware receive patent 9,022,237 for a system that features an extendable rail with hooks from which to store not only cookware, but also a variety of other items. Additional patents are pending.

Dave and Jenny Hall invented Glideware as a solution to solve a problem: better organizing pots and pans piled up inside kitchen cabinets. By hanging pots and pans from an extendable rail inside a cabinet, the cookware is easily accessible. The system can hold up to 100 pounds and store 27 pieces of cookware in a 27-inch cabinet.

Since the development of their initial product, the Halls have expanded the use of Glideware outside the kitchen to accommodate storage elsewhere in the house, the garage and even outdoors.

The Halls also revamped the product to include stainless steel hardware, high-end finishes and a soft-closing feature. Glideware also is available with Blum brand hardware.

Since its introduction, Glideware has won top honors at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, the largest trade show of its kind in the nation. Glideware also has been featured on the HGTV and DIY cable television networks and in Kitchen and Bath Design News. Glideware also was included in a list of 100 top products featured in the This Old House home improvement magazine, television show and Web site.

Meanwhile, the Grand Junction company has expanded distribution of Glideware through dealers and distributors across North America.
