Title (EN) MODULAR RECLINING CHAIR HAVING IMPROVED CHAIR FRAME AND PANTOGRAPH LINKAGE
(FR) FAUTEUIL INCLINABLE MODULAIRE A ARMATURE AMELIOREE ET MECANISME D'ARTICULATION DE TYPE PANTOGRAPHE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A modular reclining chair (10) having an improved chair frame assembly (14) and improved pantograph linkage (30) is disclosed. The chair frame assembly (14) includes a hybrid front frame member (22) assembly having a plywood front frame board (44) and a pair of metal front frame brackets (46) for interconnecting a pair of side frame assemblies (18) to define a rigid box-like chair frame (14). The front frame member assembly (22) is further interconnected with the actuation mechanism (16) to provide an integrated chair frame assembly (14). The improved pantograph linkage (30) is adapted to be readily removable from a fully assembled chair (10) for facilitating field serviceability and repair without requiring partial or complete disassembly of the reclining chair (10).
(FR)L'invention porte sur un fauteuil inclinable modulaire (10) ayant un ensemble armature amélioré (14), et sur un mécanisme d'articulation (30) de type pantographe. L'ensemble armature (14) du fauteuil comprend un ensemble d'éléments frontaux hybrides (22) constitué d'un contre-plaqué avant (44) et d'une paire de supports avant métalliques (46) permettant d'interconnecter une paire d'ensembles latéraux (18) de l'armature de façon à former une armature (14) de fauteuil de type boîte rigide. L'ensemble (22) d'éléments frontaux de l'armature est également interconnecté avec le mécanisme d'actionnement (16) de façon à former un ensemble armature (14) intégré. Le mécanisme d'articulation amélioré de type pantographe (30) est conçu pour être facilement démonté du fauteuil (10) entièrement assemblé en vue de faciliter l'entretien et la réparation sans avoir à démonter partiellement ou complètement le fauteuil (10).
