Title
(EN) EXTENDABLE/RETRACTABLE SUPPORT COLUMN
(FR) COLONNE DE SUPPORT POUVANT ÊTRE DÉPLOYÉE/RÉTRACTÉE
Abstract
(EN)
An extendable and retractable column which is formed from at least three linked sections or chains. The linked sections include a plurality of individual segments linked end to end. As the linked segments are extended, each of the individual segments of the linked chains engage individual segments of adjacent linked sections to form a column. As the linked sections are retracted, each of the individual segments of the linked sections disengage from the individual segment of the adjacent linked sections and the individual linked sections may be rolled up into a multi-sided form for compact storage.
(FR)
La présente invention se rapporte à une colonne qui peut être déployée et rétractée et qui est constituée d'au moins trois sections ou chaînes d'éléments reliés. Les sections d'éléments reliés comprennent une pluralité de segments individuels reliés bout à bout. A mesure que les segments reliés sont déployés, chaque segment individuel des chaînes d'éléments reliés vient en prise avec des segments individuels de sections d'éléments reliés adjacentes pour former une colonne. A mesure que les sections d'éléments reliés sont rétractées, chaque segment individuel des sections d'éléments reliés se désolidarise du segment individuel des sections d'éléments reliés adjacentes et les sections d'éléments reliés individuelles peuvent être enroulées pour prendre une forme polygonale et permettre un stockage compact.
