Title (EN) FOLDABLE STEP
(FR) ESCABEAU PLIANT
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to at least a foldable step mounted within a cabinet or cupboard of varying heights and having a minimal folded profile. The foldable step has a pair of cross members secured in a horizontal orientation to the cupboard. The cross members are coupled to a pair of cupboard support members. The cupboard support members are rotatably coupled to two offset members that rotate vertical support members to reach the floor. The vertical support members hold a plurality of steps using other support members. The entire linkage structure pivotally or slidably folds into a minimal profile.
(FR) La présente invention concerne au moins un escabeau pliant monté à l'intérieur d'un meuble ou d'un placard de différentes hauteurs et présentant un profil plié minimal. L'escabeau pliant présente une paire d'éléments transversaux fixés selon une orientation horizontale par rapport au placard. Les éléments transversaux sont accouplés à une paire d'éléments de support de placard. Les éléments de support de placard sont accouplés en rotation à deux éléments décalés qui font tourner des éléments de support verticaux pour atteindre le sol. Les éléments de support verticaux soutiennent une pluralité de marches au moyen d'autres éléments de support. Toute la structure de liaison se replie de façon pivotante ou coulissante selon un profil minimal.
