Title
(EN) MODULAR ENCLOSURE WITH LIVING HINGES
(FR) ENCEINTE MODULAIRE AVEC CHARNIERES MOBILES
Abstract
(EN)
A modular enclosure, such as a shed, may include a plurality of corner panels that are constructed from blow-molded plastic. Each of the corner panels may include a living hinge that generally divides the corner panel in half and allows the corner panel to be moved between a generally planar position to facilitate packaging of the shed and an angled position. The shed may also include a plurality of wall panels constructed from blow-molded plastic and disposed between the corner panels. The living hinge is preferably generally vertically positioned when the corner panels are used to construct the shed and the living hinge preferably extends generally from a top portion of the corner panel to a lower portion of the corner panel. Advantageously, the living hinge may be used to construct other portions of the shed such as shelves, skylights and roof caps.

Cette invention concerne une enceinte modulaire, telle qu'une remise, pouvant comporter des panneaux d'angle en plastique moulé par soufflage. Chacun des panneaux d'angle comprend une charnière mobile qui le divise généralement en deux et qui lui permet de passer d'une position généralement plane (pour le rangement), à une position en angle. La remise peut inclure une pluralité de panneaux muraux en plastique moulé par soufflage, disposés entre les panneaux d'angle. La charnière mobile est disposée de préférence verticalement lorsque les panneaux d'angle sont utilisés pour la construction de la remise et s'étend généralement de la partie supérieure à la partie inférieure du panneau d'angle. La charnière mobile offre l'avantage de pouvoir être utilisée pour la réalisation d'autres parties de l'enceinte telles qu'étagères, tabatières ou éléments de toiture.
