Title (EN) COLLAPSIBLE CONTAINER
(FR) CONTENEUR REPLIABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A collapsible container having a base and four side walls upstanding from the base, the side walls being hinged to the base so that they may occupy positions in which the side walls upstand from the base or in which they overlie the base by folding the side walls inwardly relative to the base. The side walls are moulded separately from the base, and there are provided engaging means on sides of the base and lower parts of the side walls to enable the side walls to be secured to the base. Engagement of the side walls with the base is such that whilst the side walls may be relatively easily attached to the base, removal of the side walls from the base is hindered, for example by virtue of a snap fitting engagement.
(FR) Conteneur repliable possédant une base et quatre parois latérales s'élevant verticalement depuis la base, les parois latérales étant reliées à la base par une articulation, de manière à pouvoir prendre des positions dans lesquelles lesdites parois latérales s'élèvent verticalement depuis la base ou dans lesquelles elles sont placées au-dessus de la base étant donné qu'elles sont repliées vers l'intérieur par rapport à ladite base. Ces parois latérales sont moulées séparément de la base et sont pourvues de moyens d'accouplement sur des côtés de la base et des parties inférieures desdites parois latérales, afin de permettre la fixation de ces dernières à la base. L'accouplement des parois latérales à la base est conçu de telle sorte que, tandis que les parois latérales peuvent être fixées relativement facilement à la base, il est impossible de séparer les parois latérales de la base grâce, par exemple, à un accouplement encliquetable.
