Abstract: front page image
(EN)An inflatable cooler is provided having a rigid base, an upper frame, and an inflatable body having at least one fluid chamber connected to the base and to the upper frame. The inflatable body and the at least fluid chamber is comprised of a flexible material. The cooler has an inflated state in which the at least one fluid chamber is filled with a fluid such as air, thereby increasing the height of the cooler and forming a semi-rigid body structure useful for transporting food and beverages. The cooler has a deflated state in which the at least one fluid chamber is not filled, thereby providing a compact structure conducive for efficient storage and relatively inexpensive shipping.
(FR)L'invention concerne une glacière gonflable présentant une base rigide, une structure supérieure et un corps gonflable présentant au moins un compartiment fluidique relié à cette base et à la structure supérieure. Le corps gonflable et le compartiment fluidique susmentionnés sont constitués d'une matière souple. La glacière présente un état gonflé dans lequel le compartiment fluidique est rempli d'un fluide, notamment de l'air, ce qui augmente la hauteur de la glacière et ce qui forme une structure de corps semi-rigide utile pour transporter des aliments et des boissons. Cette glacière présente un état dégonflé dans lequel le compartiment fluidique est vide, ce qui permet d'obtenir une structure compacte appropriée à un stockage efficace et à un transport relativement peut coûteux.
