Title
(EN) COLLAPSIBLE CONTAINER WITH DURABLE BOTTOM SHELL
(FR) CONTENANT PLIABLE A COQUE INFERIEURE DURABLE
Abstract
(EN) A collapsible container includes a cylindrical sidewall (12) extending between a top (14) and a bottom (16) of the container. The sidewall is formed of a flexible material which enables the container to be opened to an expanded configuration or closed to a collapsed configuration. A coil spring (36) biases the container to the open configuration. The coil spring has a top coil adjacent the top of the container and a bottom coil adjacent the bottom of the container. A durable bottom layer (44) is affixed to the bottom of the container by at least one clamp.
(FR) L'invention concerne un contenant pliable comprenant une paroi latérale cylindrique (12) s'étendant de la partie supérieure (14) à la partie inférieure (16) du contenant. La paroi latérale est constituée d'un matériau flexible qui permet au contenant d'adopter une configuration dépliée ouverte ou une configuration repliée fermée. Un ressort hélicoïdal (36) pousse le conteneur à prendre la configuration dépliée. Le ressort hélicoïdal (36) présente une spire supérieure adjacente à la partie supérieure du contenant et une spire inférieure adjacente à la partie inférieure du contenant. Une couche inférieure durable (44) est fixée à la partie inférieure du contenant à l'aide d'au moins une attache.
