Title (EN) A BRAKE AND A HANGING DEVICE FOR LAUNDRY USING SAID BRAKE
(FR) FREIN ET DISPOSITIF DE SUPPORT POUR LE SECHAGE DU LINGE, DOTE DUDIT FREIN
Abstract:
(EN) A uni-directional friction brake unit (2) comprising a unit support (4), a friction wheel (10) rotatably mounted with respect to the unit support, a flexible, substantially inextendible band (26) embracing the friction wheel over a major portion of its peripheral surface, one end of the band being fixedly coupled to the unit support, means (46) for frictionally coupling the band to the friction wheel over the major portion, elastic biasing means (30) coupling an opposite end of the band to the unit support for biasing the band into frictional engagement with the wheel and means for rotating the friction wheel with respect to the unit support. The arrangement being such that rotation of the wheel in a first sense (50) results in tightening the band around the friction wheel so as to resist the rotation, while rotation of the friction wheel in a second and opposite sense (52) results in loosening the band with respect to the friction wheel.
(FR) L'invention concerne un organe de frein à friction (2) unidirectionnel comprenant un support (4), une roue à friction (10) montée rotative par rapport au support, une bande souple (26) sensiblement non extensible entourant la roue à friction sur une majeure partie de sa périphérie, une extrémité de la bande étant accouplée à demeure au support, un moyen (46) pour accoupler par friction la bande et la majeure partie de la roue à friction, un moyen de sollicitation (30) élastique accouplant une extrémité opposée de la bande et le support de sorte que la bande soit mise, par effet ressort, en contact de friction avec la roue, et un moyen de mise en rotation de la roue à friction par rapport au support. Le dispositif est conçu pour que la rotation de la roue dans un premier sens (50) serre la bande autour de la roue à friction à l'encontre de la rotation, et que la rotation de la roue dans un second sens opposé (52) provoque le relâchement de la bande par rapport à la roue à friction.
