Title
(EN) MULTIPLE COMPACT DISC SUPPORTING TRAY
(FR) PLATEAU DE SUPPORT POUR DISQUES COMPACTS MULTIPLES
Abstract
(EN)
A clear plastic box cover hinged to a bottom member includes a relatively brittle clear (translucent or transparent) thermoplastic molded compact disc (CD) receiving tray, all of polystyrene. The tray has a central rosette of inwardly extending resilient fingers each with an upstanding shoulder for resiliently receiving a pair of overlying CDs on one tray side. The shoulders each have two spaced inclined disc receiving sections, one over the other, each section for receiving a disc. The uppermost disc receiving section overhangs and grips the uppermost disc. The lowermost disc is captured by an intervening overhanging section, the uppermost disc and the tray. A plurality of molded radially extending ribs stiffen multiple sets of pairs of opposing fingers to support the discs in case of breakage of the resilient fingers and which alternate with the resilient fingers.
(FR)
Un couvercle de boîtier plastique clair, articulé à un fond, comprend un plateau moulé thermoplastique clair (translucide ou transparent) relativement fragile, destiné à recevoir des disques compacts, le tout en polystyrène. Le plateau présente une rosette centrale faite de languettes élastiques s'étendant vers l'intérieur, ayant chacune un épaulement vertical destiné à recevoir en toute élasticité une paire de disques compacts se chevauchant sur l'un des côtés du plateau. Ces épaulements comportent chacun deux sections inclinées espacées, l'une sur l'autre, chaque section étant destinée à recevoir un disque. La section supérieure recouvre et agrippe le disque supérieur. Le disque inférieur est pris entre une section venant se placer sur lui, le disque supérieur et le plateau. Plusieurs nervures moulées s'étendant radialement servent à rigidifier les groupes multiples de paires de languettes opposées, afin de retenir les disques en cas de rupture des languettes élastiques, ces nervures alternant avec les languettes élastiques.
