Title
(EN) METHOD FOR FIXING ELONGATE BODY, STRUCTURE FOR FIXING ELONGATE BODY, AND ELONGATE BODY HOLDER
(FR) PROCEDE ET STRUCTURE DE FIXATION D'UN CORPS ALLONGE ET SUPPORT DE CORPS ALLONGE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a method and a device for fixing a linear member, without deteriorating the its appearance or cousing damage or breakage thereof . A panel (13) shaped in correspondence to a fiber holder (3) and having an engaging groove (14) defining a predetermined arrangement passage. A light fiber (1) is fixed to the engaging groove via the fiber holder while exposing the outer surface of the non-exposed portion of the light fiber outside. The light fiber is a linear member for uniformly- reflecting a light beam fed from one end into the interior thereof .
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif permettant de fixer un élément linéaire sans toutefois nuire à son apparence, le détériorer ou le casser. Un panneau (13) façonné selon la forme d'un support de fibre (3) et doté d'une rainure de retenue (14) formant un passage de disposition prédéterminé. Une fibre optique (1) est fixée dans la rainure de retenue à l'aide du support de fibre, la surface extérieure de la partie non exposée de la fibre optique étant exposée vers l'extérieur. La fibre optique est un élément linéaire qui réfléchit de manière uniforme les faisceaux lumineux entrant par une extrémité à l'intérieur de sa structure.
