Title (EN) TABLE AND SEATING ARRANGEMENT
(FR) AGENCEMENT TABLE ET SIÈGES
Abstract:
(EN) A folding table and seating arrangement includes a pair of table tops, each of the table tops having a table top frame. A folding framework supports the table tops and facilitates folding the table tops between a first position and a second position, the folding framework defining a rotational axis with each of the table tops. A folding assist system offset forces during folding and includes a mechanical strut assembly attached to the folding framework and providing a biasing force. Cap elements have a receiving portion inserting into an orifice in the table top frame and aligned with the rotational axis to receive a tubular cross. The cap elements provide low friction and have tabs that clip into corresponding slots in the table top frame.
(FR) L'invention concerne un agencement pliant table et sièges comprenant une paire de plateaux de table, chaque plateau de table comportant un cadre de plateau de table. Un châssis pliant supporte les plateaux de table et facilite le repliement des plateaux de table entre une première position et une seconde position, le châssis pliant définissant un axe de rotation avec chaque plateau de table. Un système d'assistance au repliement décale des forces pendant le repliement et comprend un ensemble entretoises mécaniques fixé sur le châssis pliant et fournissant une force de sollicitation. Des éléments de coiffe présentent une partie réceptrice s'insérant dans un orifice ménagé dans le cadre de plateau de table et alignée sur l'axe de rotation pour recevoir une traverse tubulaire. Les éléments de coiffe assurent un frottement réduit et comportent des ergots qui se clipsent dans des fentes correspondantes ménagées dans le cadre de plateau de table.
