Title
(EN) AUTO ACCESSORY FLOOR MAT
(FR) TAPIS DE SOL AUXILIAIRE POUR VEHICULE AUTOMOBILE
Abstract
(EN)
An accessory floor mat designed to overlie and protect a portion of the original carpeted floor of an automobile is preformed into a tray-like configuration which also conforms to the contours of the floor portion. The mat (10) snugly fits into the carpeted floor well on a side of the vehicle and thereby resists mat sliding. The rigidity of the mat is such that it maintains its original position in the vehicle and also retains its shape when removed for cleaning. Raised borders (14) of the mat terminate in rolled edges (16) which eliminate the need for surging or otherwise finishing these edges. Optionally the mat can be provided with a recessed heel pad (20). The composite carpet structure from which the mat is molded preferably includes a layer of carpet fibers (26) tufted into a primary backing material (28) which is bonded to a sheet of open-celled foam (22) by an extruded thermoformable copolymer (32) of polyethylene and ethylene vinyl acetate.
(FR)
Un tapis de sol auxiliaire conçu pour recouvrir et protéger une partie du plancher moquetté d'origine d'un véhicule automobile est configuré en forme de plateau qui épouse également les contours de la partie du plancher. Le tapis (10) entre exactement dans l'espace du plancher moquetté d'un côté du véhicule, ce qui l'empêche ainsi de glisser. Le tapis présente une rigidité telle qu'il conserve sa position initiale dans le véhicule et ne perd pas sa forme lorsqu'il est retiré pour être nettoyé. Les bords relevés (14) du tapis se terminent en des rebords enroulés (16), ce qui élimine le besoin de solidifier ou d'apporter une quelconque autre finission à ses rebords. Le tapis peut éventuellement être porvu d'un rembourrage en forme de talon évidé. La structure composite dans laquelle le tapis est moulé comprend de préférence une couche de fibres (26) de tapis tuftés dans un matériau primaire de renforcement (28) qui est lié à une feuille de mousse à alvéoles ouverts (22) par un copolymère thermoformable extrudé (32) d'acétate de vinyle éthylène et polyéthylène.
