Title (EN) KNOCK-DOWN FURNITURE
(FR) MOBILIER DEMONTABLE
Abstract:
(EN) Conventionally, substantially rigid parts such as panels and the like, are joined by mechanical fitments or couplers which not only require tools to assemble and disassemble but also create concentrated stress points at the junctions where the fitments or couplers are located. The present device utilizes hook and loop coupling material (19, 22) to detachably secure the parts together and incorporates mechanical location and aligning means (25, 26) between the two parts just prior to the engagement of the hook and loop fastener portions with one another thus facilitating the accurate assembly of the parts. Although designed primarily for use in various types of knock-down furniture and the like, it can of course be adapted for use with other substantially rigid parts.
(FR) Habituellement les pièces très rigides, par exemple des panneaux ou éléments similaires, sont assemblées par des fixations ou des accouplements mécaniques nécessitant non seulement des outils pour leur montage ou démontage mais aussi créant des points de tensions concentrés aux jonctions où se situent les fixations ou accouplements. Le présent dispositif utilise un matériau d'accouplement adhésif (19, 22) pour assembler les pièces de façon non permanente et intègre des moyens mécaniques (25, 26) de positionnement et d'alignement entre les deux pièces préalablement à la mise en contact des segments de fixation par boucles et crochets facilitant ainsi l'assemblage précis des pièces. Bien que conçu à l'origine pour une utilisation avec différents types de mobilier démontable et éléments similaires, il peut évidement s'adapter pour une utilisation avec d'autres pièces très rigides.
