Title
(EN) CLIP FASTENING SYSTEM FOR WALLS
(FR) SYSTEME DE FIXATION PAR PINCES POUR PAROIS
Abstract
(EN)
A clip (10) is used to fasten a wall panel (20) to a frame rail (30). The clip (10) is fitted to the rail (30) and has pawl-like tabs (13) which locate in apertures (35) in a side wall of the rail (30). Corresponding apertures (21) are provided on the edge of the wall (20). When the edge of the wall is inserted into the clip (10), the pawl-like tabs (13) snap-fit through the apertures (21) and into the apertures (35), thereby captively retaining the wall (20) to the rail (30). Alternatively, the clip may be formed integrally with a rail (51) by pressing out a flap (50) from a side wall of the rail (51). Each flap (50) has a pawl-like indent (56). Corresponding apertures (59) are provided on the edge of a wall sheet (60). When the edge of the wall sheet (60) is inserted between the flaps (54) and the rail (51), the pawl-like indents (56) locate in the apertures (59), thereby captively retaining the wall sheets (60) to the rail (51).
(FR)
L'invention porte sur une pince (10) utilisée pour fixer un panneau (20) mural sur un longeron (30) de châssis. La pince (10) s'adapte sur le longeron (30) et comporte des languettes (13) de type cliquets qui se trouvent dans les orifices (35) d'une paroi latérale du longeron (30). Des orifices (21) correspondants sont formés sur le bord de la paroi (20). Lorsque le bord de la paroi est inséré dans la pince (10), les languettes (13) de type cliquets s'adaptent par encliquetage dans les orifices (21 et 35), ce qui retient la paroi (20) dans le longeron (30). Selon une autre variante, la pince peut être intégrée à un longeron (51) en dégageant par pression un volet (50) d'une paroi latérale du longeron (51). Chaque volet (50) comporte une déformation saillante (56) de type cliquet. Des orifices (59) correspondants sont formés sur le bord d'une plaque (60) murale. Lorsque le bord de la plaque (60) murale est inséré entre les volets (54) et le longeron, les plaques (60) murales restent coincées dans le longeron (51).
