Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS RELATING TO GOLF MATS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS CONCERNANT DES TAPIS DE GOLF
Abstract:
(EN) A brush strip is formed from a metal channel member (1) which receives the roots of plastics filaments (2) and is pinched to clamp them. The strip is then formed into a Flemish coil with the filaments (2) upstanding to provide an artificial turf surface. Underneath, metal bars (5) may be welded to the channel member (1) to rigidify the structure and complete the mat. They can also assist location at different angular positions in a surround (7). A hole (4) at the centre of the coil can be plugged with an insert which can carry a flexible tee peg or receive ordinary pegs. Alternatively, the hole can serve as access for practice balls to be lifted or projected up on to the mat. A circular mat with upstanding filaments can be provided by other brush constructions, and the filaments may differ in length and/or stiffness in different areas.
(FR) On forme une bande du type permettant de constituer une brosse à partir d'un élément métallique (1) formant une gorge, lequel reçoit des parties inférieures de filaments plastiques (2) qu'il pince par serrage. On enroule ensuite cette bande de façon hélicoïdale, les filaments (2) se dressant pour constituer une surface de gazon artificiel. On peut souder des barres de métal sous-jacentes (5) à cet élément (1) pour rigidifier la structure et parachever ce tapis et aussi pour éventuellement faciliter son positionnement angulaire dans un ensemble (7). Un orifice (4), ménagé au centre du bobinage hélicoïdal, peut être obturé par une pièce rapportée pouvant recevoir un tee souple ou des tees ordinaires. Cet orifice peut aussi constituer un accès pour des balles d'entraînement qu'on peut ainsi faire remonter ou projeter sur ce tapis. On peut obtenir un tapis circulaire à filaments dressés grâce à d'autres configurations en brosses, les filaments pouvant, selon les zones, différer par leur longueur et/ou leur rigidité.
