Title
(EN) OVERHEAD STORAGE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE RANGEMENT SUPERIEUR
Abstract
(EN)
An overhead storage device (30) includes a storage container (36) that is pivotably or rotatably mounted to an overhead surface (38) such as a ceiling or a plurality of rafters. The storage container (36) is generally moved by a motorized actuating assembly (34) which includes a worm drive (104) and follower nut arrangement (102). The storage container (36) is supported by a frame (42) and is secured to the frame (42) at an end of the storage container (36). The frame (42) also includes a plurality of arms (70) that secure the storage container (36) to the frame (42). The overhead storage device (30) is sized to allow a motor vehicle to fit below a raised storage container (36) in an average height garage. The overhead storage container (36) is assembled from two generally identical halves (150) that are nestable for shipping and storage.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif de rangement supérieur (30) qui comprend un contenant de stockage (36) monté pivotant ou rotatif sur une surface supérieure (38), du type plafond ou pluralité de chevrons. En règle générale, le contenant (36) est déplacé par un ensemble actionneur à moteur (34). Cet ensemble comprend un pignon à vis sans fin (104) et un arrangement d'écrou suiveur (114). Le contenant (36) est soutenu par un ensemble cadre (42), auquel il est fixé généralement par une extrémité. En outre, l'ensemble cadre (36) comprend une pluralité de bras (70) qui fixent le contenant (36) à cet ensemble (42). Le dispositif de rangement supérieur (30) a une dimension qui permet de stationner, en dessous, un véhicule à moteur dans un garage de hauteur moyenne, lorsque le contenant de stockage (36) est dans sa position surélevée. Le contenant (36) est constitué de moitiés généralement identiques (150) qui sont emboîtables aux fins d'expédition et de stockage.
