ملاحظة:نص مبني على العمليات الآلية للتعرف الضوئي على الحروف. الرجاء استخدام إصدار PDF لقيمته القانونية

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1 . A sheet material connector comprising:

an elongated body having first and second walls disposed parallel to one another and interconnected at the midpoint thereof by a connecting wall disposed perpendicular thereto;

wherein the second wall is a substantially curved elongated planar surface defining an arc concave to the connecting wall, and has a width greater than the first wall;

wherein the distance between the first and second walls defines a pair of channels separated by the connecting wall, each configured to accept a portion of a sheet material body therein; and

wherein the curved surface of the second wall is configured to apply a resilient force to the portion of the sheet material body disposed within the pair of channels.

2. The sheet material connector of claim 1 , wherein the longitudinal edges of the second wall are angled outward from the pair of channels.

3. The sheet material connector of claim 1 , wherein the sheet material connector is formed of a material selected from the group consisting of metal, polymeric materials and cellulosic materials.

4. The sheet material connector of claim 1 , wherein the sheet material connector is translucent.

5. The sheet material connector of claim 1 , wherein the width of the pair of channels is selected from the group consisting of ¼ inch, ½ inch, % inch, and ¾ inch.

6. The sheet material connector of claim 1 , wherein the first wall is a substantially flat elongated planar surface.

7. The sheet material connector of claim 1 , wherein the connecting wall is a substantially flat elongated planar surface.

8. A method for adjoining sections of sheet material comprising:

providing a sheet material connector comprising:

an elongated body having first and second walls disposed parallel to one another and interconnected at the midpoint thereof by a connecting wall disposed perpendicular thereto,

wherein the second wall is a substantially curved elongated planar surface defining an arc concave to the connecting wall, and has a width greater than the first wall,

wherein the distance between the first and second walls defines a pair of channels separated by the connecting wall, each configured to accept a portion of a sheet material body therein;

inserting a portion of different sheet material bodies into each of the channels, such that the first wall overlaps an outer front surface of each of the different sheet material bodies and such that the second wall overlaps an outer back surface of each of the different sheet material bodies, and wherein the ends of the sheet material bodies abut adjacent the connecting wall; and

inserting at least one fastener through the outer front surface of each of the different sheet material bodies and into the second wall, and tightening each of the at least one fasteners such that the curved elongated planar surface of the second wall applies a resilient force to the ends of each of the different sheet material bodies to draw said ends back toward the second wall.

9. The method of claim 8, wherein the longitudinal edges of the second wall are angled outward from the pair of channels.

10. The method of claim 8, wherein the sheet material connector is formed of a material selected from the group consisting of metal, polymeric materials and cellulosic materials.

1 1 . The method of claim 8, wherein the sheet material connector is translucent.

12. The method of claim 8, wherein the width of the pair of channels is selected from the group consisting of ¼ inch, ½ inch, % inch, and ¾ inch.

13. The method of claim 8, wherein the first wall is a substantially flat elongated planar surface.

14. The method of claim 8, wherein the connecting wall is a substantially flat elongated planar surface.

15. The method of claim 8, wherein the sheet material is drywall.

16. The method of claim 8, wherein a plurality of fasteners are inserted through the outer front surface of each of the different sheet material bodies.

17. The method of claim 8, wherein the fasteners are threaded fasteners.

18. The method of claim 8, wherein the sheet material connector is installed on a vertical surface.

19. The method of claim 8, wherein the sheet material connector is install on a horizontal surface.
