Title (EN) SHEET MATERIAL CONNECTOR
(FR) RACCORD POUR MATÉRIAU EN FORME DE FEUILLE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and methods for joining sections of sheet material (e.g., drywall) are provided. The sheet material joining apparatus or connector comprises an elongated body having two channels disposed such that the ends of two sections of sheet material may be secured therein. The channels are defined by front and back walls interconnected via an internal rib. The front wall is configured to be disposed on the exposed side of the sheet material and the back wall is configured to be disposed on the back or hidden side of the sheet material, while the back wall takes the form of a convex arced surface. The convex arced surface is configured to be engaged by one or more securing elements (e.g., screw), and during such engagement to exert a resilient force onto the adjoining sections of sheet material to draw them inward toward the back wall of the connector.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un appareil et des procédés pour assembler des sections de matériau en dorme de feuille (par exemple, une cloison sèche). L'appareil d'assemblage de matériau en forme feuille ou le raccord comprend un corps allongé ayant deux canaux disposés de telle sorte que les extrémités de deux sections de matériau en forme de feuille peuvent être fixées à l'intérieur de celui-ci. Les canaux sont définis par des parois avant et arrière interconnectées par l'intermédiaire d'une nervure interne. La paroi avant est configurée pour être disposée sur le côté exposé du matériau en forme de feuille et la paroi arrière est configurée pour être disposée sur le côté arrière ou caché du matériau en forme de feuille, tandis que la paroi arrière se présente sous la forme d'une surface arquée convexe. La surface arquée convexe est configurée pour être mise en prise par un ou plusieurs éléments de fixation (par exemple, des vis) et, pendant une telle mise en prise, exercer une force élastique sur les sections adjacentes de matériau en forme de feuille de sorte à les attirer vers l'intérieur en direction de la paroi arrière du raccord.
