Title
(EN) FRICTION MODULE, FRICTION HINGE, AND ADJUSTABLE HEADREST INCLUDING THE FRICTION MODULE AND/OR FRICTION HINGE
(FR) MODULE DE FRICTION, CHARNIÈRE À FRICTION, ET APPUI-TÊTE RÉGLABLE COMPRENANT LE MODULE DE FRICTION ET/OU LA CHARNIÈRE À FRICTION
Abstract
(EN)
An adjustable headrest 300 includes a guide 360 configured to be coupled to a seat, a head support 302 coupled to the guide and configured to be movable along an adjustment path relative to the seat, and a slider 370 having a surface defining a recess 373 receiving the guide such that the surface of the slider contacts a surface of the guide. The adjustment headrest further includes a retainer 390 positioned to urge the surface of the slider against the surface of the guide, thereby maintaining friction between the surface of the slider and the surface of the guide and resisting unintended movement of the slider with respect to the guide along the adjustment path. Also, a friction module and a friction hinge are provided, which can be incorporated into an adjustable headrest or other assemblies in which sliding and/or hinged components are desired.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appui-tête réglable 300 qui comprend un guide 360 configuré pour être couplé à un siège, un support de tête 302 couplé au guide et configuré de manière à être mobile le long d'un chemin de réglage par rapport au siège, et un coulisseau 370 ayant une surface définissant un évidement 373 recevant le guide de telle sorte que la surface du coulisseau est en contact avec une surface du guide. L'appui-tête réglable comprend en outre un dispositif de retenue 390 positionné de manière à presser la surface du coulisseau contre la surface du guide, maintenant ainsi la friction entre la surface du coulisseau et la surface du guide et résistant à un mouvement non intentionnel du coulisseau par rapport au guide le long du chemin de réglage. L'invention concerne en outre un module de friction et une charnière à friction qui peuvent être intégrés dans un appui-tête réglable ou d'autres ensembles dans lesquels des composants coulissants et/ou articulés sont souhaités.
