Title (EN) SCREEN OF THE TYPE HAVING TWO OR MORE OVERLAPPING SLIDING LEAVES
(FR) ECRAN COMPORTANT DEUX OU PLUS DE DEUX PANNEAUX COULISSANTS A RECOUVREMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A screen (10) comprises overlapping leaves (12.1, 12.2), an upper rail (14.1) on which the leaves are hung, and a lower rail (14.2) for guiding the lower ends of the leaves during their sliding movement. A runner element (30) whereby the lower end of an outer one of the leaves is guided with respect to the lower rail, is pivotally displaceable between a first condition in which it engages with the lower rail and a second condition in which it is disengaged from the lower rail, permitting the leaf to swing away from the other leaf. This facilitates cleaning of the leaves in the region where they overlap.
(FR)Ecran (10) comprenant des panneaux à recouvrement (12.1, 12.2), un rail supérieur (14.1) auquel les panneaux sont suspendus et un rail inférieur (14.2) guidant l'extrémité inférieure des panneaux dans leur mouvement de coulissement. Un patin (30) permettant de guider l'extrémité inférieure de l'un des panneaux d'extrémité est guidé par rapport au rail inférieur. Il se déplace en pivotant d'une première position, selon laquelle il est engagé dans le rail inférieur, vers une deuxième position selon laquelle il est dégagé de ce rail, permettant au panneau de basculer en s'éloignant de l'autre panneau. Ceci facilite le nettoyage des panneaux dans la zone où ils se recouvrent.
