Title (EN) MOPS AND MOP COMPONENTS
(FR) BALAIS A LAVER ET LEURS COMPOSANTS
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed is a butterfly mop having an elongate shaft (21) with a channel body (50) disposed at one end of the shaft, the channel body having first and second leg portions (51, 52) defining a channel therebetween, the mop further having a mop element (26) including a foldable, compressible, liquid-absorbent member. The mop element and channel body are hingedly movable along a hinge line (62) relative to one another, whereby the mop element may be drawn into the channel causing the mop element to fold along a transverse axis and to become compressed between the channel body leg portions. A manual actuation mechanism includes a handle (66) and a tension rod (68) connecting the handle to one of the mop element and channel body for effecting relative hinged movement thereof. The mop element preferably includes plural pairs of apertures (135-138) for allowing mounting of the mop element to variously sized mop element supports.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un balai laveur type papillon qui comporte un manche allongé (21) doté d'un corps (50) pourvu d'un canal et placé à une extrémité du manche. Le corps comporte des premier et second bras (51, 52) formant entre eux un canal. Le balai comporte également un élément de lavage (26) constitué d'une partie absorbant le liquide, compressible, pliable. L'élément de lavage (26) du balai et le corps pourvu d'un canal s'articulent l'un par rapport à l'autre le long d'une ligne d'articulation (62). L'élément de lavage est entraîné dans le canal, ce qui provoque son repliement le long d'un axe transversal et sa compression entre les bras du canal. Un mécanisme d'actionnement manuel comprend une poignée (66) et une tige de tensionnement (68) raccordant la poignée à un élément de l'ensemble de lavage et au corps constitué d'un canal de sorte de sorte que ceux-ci s'articulent de manière relative. L'élément de lavage comporte de préférence plusieurs paires d'orifices (135-138) qui permettent de fixer l'élément de lavage sur des supports de différentes tailles.
