Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN A BRACING ARRANGEMENT FOR FURNITURE
(FR) PERFECTIONNEMENTS RELATIFS A DU MOBILIER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A bracing arrangement for a piece of furniture comprises a wire (25) extending diagonally between and around a series of pulleys (26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31) placed at strategic points on opposing side panels (20, 21). The ends of the wire are connected to an adjusting mechanism (32) which is fixed to a part (24) of the furniture. Adjustment of the mechanism allows the ends of the wire to be pulled together to tension the wire and brace the structure.
(FR)Un ensemble de renforts conçus pour un meuble comprend un câble métallique (25) s'étendant diagonalement entre et autour d'une série de poulies (26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31) disposées en des points stratégiques sur des panneaux latéraux en opposition (20, 21). Les extrémités du câble métallique sont raccordées à un mécanisme de réglage (32) qui est fixé à une partie (24) du meuble. Le réglage effectué au moyen dudit mécanisme permet de tirer sur l'ensemble des extrémités du câble métallique de manière à mettre ledit câble sous tension et à renforcer la structure.
