Title (EN) HAND RAIL ASSEMBLY
(FR) MAIN COURANTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A hand rail assembly (10, 110) including a graspable portion (14, 114) connected at spaced portions, such as ends (15, 18), to a support wall (11) with at least one of the connections (16, 116) being breakable by inadvertent application of high force to the hand rail assembly to avoid substantial damage to the hand rail assembly by such forces. The breakable connection may include a shear pin (30) or releasable ring (143) permitting the breakable connection to be broken by such high forces but assuring the connection to be maintained by forces normally applied to the hand rail assembly in normal use. The breakable connection may be provided at one or both ends of the graspable portion. In the illustrated embodiment, the breakable connection is provided at one end with the other end being provided with a swingable connection. The connections may include brackets (28, 35) or may be defined by distal end portions (140, 148) of the studs (121, 131) connected directly to the wall portion (11).
(FR)Une main courante (10, 110) comprend une partie que l"on peut saisir (14, 114) reliee en des parties espacees telles que des extremites (15, 8), a une paroi de support (11), une des liaisons (16, 116) etant susceptible de se casser sous l"action d"une force importante accidentelle sur la main courante de maniere a eviter un endommagement. La liaison cassable peut comprendre une goupille de dechirement (30) ou anneau liberable (143) permettant a la liaison de se casser sous l"action de forces importantes mais en assurant le maintien de cette liaison lorsque des forces d"une intensite normale son appliquees a la main courante. La liaison cassable peut etre prevue a une ou aux deux extremites de la partie saisissable. Dans le mode de realisation illustre, la liaison cassable est prevue a une extremite, l"autre extremite etant pourvue d"une liaison pivotante. Les liaisons peuvent comprendre des consoles (28, 35) ou peuvent etre definies par des portions extremes distales (140, 148) des barres (121, 131) liees directement a la portion de paroi (11).
