Title (EN) CORDLESS APPARATUS FOR OPERATING BLINDS AND SHADES
(FR) DISPOSITIF SANS CORDON DE TIRAGE POUR STORES ET PERSIENNES
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus for cordless operation of blinds and shades (10). A pair of actuators (14, 15) are in spiral engagement with a spiral wand (13) coupled to a rail mechanism (11) from which the blinds or shades (10) depend. Each actuator (14, 15) is biased into driving engagement with the wand (13), one of the actuators (14, 15) rotating the wand (13) in one direction when raised or lowered and the other actuator (14, 15) rotating the wand (13) in the opposite direction when raised or lowered.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un dispositif permettant de manipuler les stores et les persiennes sans cordon de tirage. Une paire d'activateurs s'accouplent de manière hélicoïdale avec une manivelle hélicoïdale d'orientation couplée avec un mécanisme sur rails d'où partent les stores et les persiennes. Chaque activateur est sollicité pour venir en contact d'entraînement avec ladite manivelle: levés ou abaissés, le premier activateur fait tourner la manivelle dans une première direction, tandis que le second la fait tourner dans la direction opposée.
