Title (EN) SHOWER HEAD WITH SWITCHING OF SPRAY MODE
(FR) POMME DE DOUCHE A VARIATION D'ASPERSION
Abstract:
(EN) A shower head supplied through a flexible hose that can provide two different modes of spray that can be switched by operating two push buttons, having a supply space (12), two supply members of different type, two communication passages between the supply space (12) and the two supply members, two separate intercept valves (13, 14) arranged to control each one of the two communication passages, each valve being connected to an operating push button, and a valve lever (15) that is connected to the two valves (13, 14) in order to link them for the performance of displacements in the opposite direction. Preferably, each of the intercept valves (13, 14) is a piston valve whose upper end constitutes the operating push button. Preferably, one of the supply members consists of a hollow member whose inferior surface displays a plurality of sprinkle supply holes (19) and a seat for a means of attachment to the other parts of the device and which centrally has a seat to receive a jet aerator (23). This shower head can be made with a reduced height, and its assembly and disassembly are easy.
(FR) L'invention concerne une pomme de douche alimentée par un flexible, qui fonctionne selon deux modes d'aspersion actionnés par deux boutons-poussoirs, et comporte un espace d'alimentation (12), deux pièces de distribution différentes, deux canaux communiquant entre l'espace d'alimentation (12) et les deux pièces de distribution, deux clapets d'interception distincts (13, 14) conçus pour commander chacun un canal de communication, chaque clapet étant relié à un bouton-poussoir, et un levier de clapet (15) relié aux deux clapets (13, 14) de manière à établir entre eux une liaison qui permet les déplacements en sens opposé. De préférence, chacun des clapets d'interception (13, 14) est un clapet à piston dont l'extrémité supérieure constitue le bouton-poussoir. De préférence, l'une des deux pièces de distribution a une structure creuse dont la surface inférieure présente une série de trous d'aspersion (19) et un siège pour un moyen de fixation aux autres parties du dispositif, avec en position centrale un logement pour brise-jet aérateur (23). Ladite pomme de douche peut avoir une hauteur réduite, et se montent/démontent aisément.
