(FR) SACS ET RECIPIENTS DE CONSERVATION AUTOPORTEURS, COMPRESSIBLES ET SOUPLES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a flexible storage bag (10) comprising at least one sheet of flexible sheet material assembled to form a semi-enclosed container having an opening defined by a hinged peripheral flange (31). The hinged flange includes a closure means for sealing the opening to convert the semi-enclosed container to a closed container. When the bottom is placed on a horizontal surface the container is self-supporting and maintains the opening in an open condition. The present invention also provides a collapsible, stackable, self-restorable container (10A) comprising a unitary continuous tubular side wall having a first open end and a second open end defining an axial direction extending through the first and second open ends. The tubular sidewall is collapsible in response to an externally-applied force exerted in its axial direction and is self-restorable when the force is removed. A lid (40A) attached to the tubular side wall for selectively converting the semi-enclosed container to a closed container completes the storage container, and a closure means is provided for sealing the lid to the tubular sidewall.
(FR) Sac (10) de conservation souple comportant au moins une feuille de matière souple assemblée pour former un récipient semi-fermé doté d'une ouverture définie par une bride (31) périphérique à charnière. La bride à charnière comporte un moyen de fermeture permettant de fermer l'ouverture de manière étanche afin de convertir le récipient semi-fermé en un récipient fermé. Lorsque le fond est placé sur une surface horizontale, le récipient est autoporteur et maintient l'ouverture en position ouverte. La présente invention concerne également un récipient (101) compressible, empilable et reprenant sa forme, qui comprend une paroi latérale tubulaire continue unique dotée de première et seconde extrémités définissant un sens axial qui s'étend entre lesdites extrémités. La paroi latérale est compressible en réponse à une force externe appliquée dans le sens axial et reprend sa forme lorsque cette force cesse d'être appliquée. Un couvercle (401) attaché à la paroi latérale tubulaire permettant de convertir sélectivement le récipient semi-fermé en un récipient fermé complète ledit récipient de conservation, et un dispositif de fermeture est destiné à fixer de manière étanche le couvercle à la paroi latérale tubulaire.
