Title: CONNECTING ELEMENT FOR LINING TILES
Abstract:
The invention relates to a connecting element for the lining tiles (12, 14) of a house chimney or ventilation conduit. The front faces (16, 18) of the lining tiles (12, 14) are configured on parallel planes and respective orifices (24, 26) are provided in at least two diagonally opposite corner areas of the lining tiles (12, 14), into which connecting elements (10, 110) can be inserted. According to the invention, in order to reduce the time required to position the tiles, an elongated connecting element (10, 110) can be inserted into the orifices (16, 18) aligned opposite each other of two overlapping lining tiles (12 and 14) in a parallel direction in relation to the longitudinal axis of said tiles. The first end section (32, 132) of said connecting element can be connected to the first orifice (24) in a tensile-resistant manner and at least the second end section (34) of the connecting element (10) and the second orifice (26) can be connected together in a tensile-resistant manner, using interlocking detent elements which are configured to complement one another.
