Title (EN) FIXING DEVICE FOR A CAVITY WALL
(FR) SYSTEME DE FIXATION POUR MUR CREUX
Abstract:
(EN) A fixing device comprises a sleeve portion (10) and an engagement portion (13) which are spaced apart but which are interconnected by two flexible strut members (15), each of which includes short and long arms (16, 17). A screw (12) can be inserted through a central hole (11) in the sleeve portion (10) so that its end engages in a hole (14) in the engagement portion (13): this serves initially to hold the portion (13) in a fixed position relative to the portion (10) and thereby resist flexing movement of the strut members (15). Upon subsequent tightening of the screw, the portions (10) and (13) are caused to move together, thereby flexing the members (15) outwardly.
(FR) Un système de fixation se compose d'une partie manchon (10) et d'un élément d'engagement (13) qui sont séparés l'un de l'autre mais interconnectés par deux tiges souples (15), comprenant chacune une partie courte et une partie longue (16, 17). On peut introduire une vis (12) dans la partie manchon (10), par un trou central (11), de sorte que son extrémité s'engage dans un trou (14) situé dans l'élément d'engagement (13): ceci permet au départ de maintenir l'élément (13) dans une position fixe par rapport au manchon (10) et ceci permet ensuite à l'élément (13) de résister au mouvement de fléchissement des tiges (15). Lorsqu'on tourne la vis pour la visser, cela provoque le rapprochement des éléments (10) et (13) et le fléchissement des tiges (15) vers l'extérieur.
