Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS RELATING TO STEERING ASSEMBLIES
(FR) PERFECTIONNEMENTS SE RAPPORTANT À DES ENSEMBLES DE DIRECTION
Abstract:
(EN) A collapsible steering column assembly includes a shroud comprising an outer tube (2) that supports a steering wheel through a bearing and an inner tube (1) that is fixed to a part of the vehicle, the column assembly being able to collapse telescopically by the outer tube (2) moving over the inner tube (1), the assembly further including an energy absorbing strap (11) that is fixed to the inner tube (1) and a plough (10) which is fixed to the outer tube (2),whereby in use the assembly is so arranged that upon a telescopic collapse the relative movement between the inner tube (1) and the outer tube (2) forces a part of the plough (10) through the strap (11) to progressively peel away a part of the strap (11) from the remainder of the strap (11).
(FR) Ensemble colonne de direction repliable comprenant un épaulement comprenant un tube extérieur (2) qui supporte un volant par l'intermédiaire d'un palier et un tube intérieur (1) qui est fixé à une partie du véhicule, l'ensemble colonne pouvant être replié de manière télescopique par le tube extérieur (2) bougeant sur le tube intérieur (1), l'ensemble comprenant en outre une bande d'absorption d'énergie (11) qui est fixée au tube intérieur (1) et un racleur (10) qui est fixé au tube extérieur (2). Lors de l'utilisation, l'ensemble est agencé de sorte que, lors d'un repli télescopique, le déplacement relatif entre le tube intérieur (1) et le tube extérieur (2) pousse une partie du racleur (10) par l'intermédiaire de la bande (11) à détacher progressive ment une partie de la bande (11) du reste de la bande (11).
