Title
(EN) CONNECTOR SYSTEM AND BUILDING COMPONENTS FOR USE IN BUILDING CONSTRUCTION
(FR) SYSTÈME DE RACCORDS ET COMPOSANTS DE BÂTIMENTS POUR L'UTILISATION DANS LA CONSTRUCTION DE BÂTIMENTS
Abstract
(EN)
An example connector system embodiment may be used to quickly align and interconnect two framing members, planar panels or other building components, e.g. during erection of prefabricated or component housing. The connector system includes a male connector and a female connector. The connectors can be attached to, or may be integrally formed with, respective building components to be interconnected. The male connector comprises a tapered protrusion having a cross-sectional extent that decreases monotonically, in at least one dimension, in the direction of protrusion, so as to impart a taper to the tapered protrusion in the at least one dimension. A corresponding female connector comprises a receptacle for receiving the tapered protrusion. The taper may facilitate centering of the male connector with respect to the female connector during mating of the connectors. Depending on the orientation of the connectors, the facilitation of centering may be enhanced by gravity.

Un exemple de mode de réalisation de l'invention porte sur un système de raccords, lequel système peut être utilisé pour aligner et interconnecter rapidement deux éléments de cadre, des panneaux plats ou d'autres composants de bâtiments, par exemple pendant l'érection d'une maison préfabriquée ou à composants. Le système de raccords comprend un raccord mâle et un raccord femelle. Les raccords peuvent être attachés à des composants de bâtiment respectifs à interconnecter, ou être formés d'un seul tenant avec ceux-ci. Le raccord mâle comprend une saillie effilée ayant une étendue de section transversale qui diminue de façon monotone, au moins dans une dimension, dans la direction de saillie, de façon à communiquer un effilement à la saillie effilée dans la ou les dimensions. Un raccord femelle correspondant comprend un réceptacle pour recevoir la saillie effilée. L'effilement peut faciliter le centrage du raccord mâle par rapport au raccord femelle pendant l'accouplement des raccords. En fonction de l'orientation des raccords, la facilitation du centrage peut être améliorée par la gravité.
