Title
(EN) POST CONNECTOR AND PEG
(FR) RACCORD DE MONTANT ET CHEVILLE
Abstract
(EN)
A connector for connecting two components of a modular building. The connector is connectable to a first component of a modular building and comprises a gripper which can grip a second component of a modular building. The gripper comprises at least one movable bar that is biased into its gripping position by a spring. The connector also comprises at least one block which in use can hold the gripper in its locking position by engaging the bar of the gripper. The movement of the block, which is spring biased into its locking position, can be controlled by a link which is attached to the block and runs through the connector. The link comprises a release tab which in use restrains the block in unlocked positions. The connector can be used in the construction of a modular building, for example for connecting the components of the frame of a module. The connector can be used remotely such that the user does not need to access the connector to connect the components. A peg for connecting two components of a modular building. The peg comprises a first portion for insertion into a first component of a modular building and a second portion for being received in a second component of a modular building. The first portion includes a screw‐thread for engaging the first component. The second portion of the peg has a recessed neck for being gripper by a gripper in the second component. The peg comprises a multifaceted body portion to allow the user to rotate and align the peg. The multifaceted body portion comprises at least two surfaces for abutting blocks of the second component. The multifaceted body portion comprises at least two indentations. The peg is affixed into a connection plate. A compressible layer is positioned between the multifaceted body portion of the peg and the connection plate. An eccentric ring may be positioned between the peg and the connection plate.

La présente invention concerne un raccord permettant de relier deux éléments d'un bâtiment modulaire. Le raccord peut être relié à un premier élément d'un bâtiment modulaire et comprend un dispositif de préhension qui peut saisir un second élément d'un bâtiment modulaire. Le dispositif de préhension comprend au moins une barre mobile qui est sollicitée dans sa position de préhension par un ressort. Le raccord comprend également au moins un bloc qui, lorsqu'il est utilisé, maintient le dispositif de préhension dans sa position de verrouillage en mettant en prise la barre du dispositif de préhension. Le mouvement du bloc, qui est sollicité par ressort dans sa position de verrouillage, peut être commandé par une liaison qui est fixée au bloc et s'étend à travers le raccord. La liaison comprend une languette de libération qui, lorsqu'elle est utilisée, retient le bloc dans des positions déverrouillées. Le raccord peut être utilisé dans la construction d'un bâtiment modulaire pour relier les éléments du cadre d'un module, par exemple. Le raccord peut être utilisé à distance de telle sorte que l'utilisateur n'ait pas besoin d'accéder au raccord pour relier les éléments. L'invention concerne également une cheville pour relier deux éléments d'un bâtiment modulaire. La cheville comprend une première partie destinée à être insérée dans un premier élément d'un bâtiment modulaire et une seconde partie destinée à être reçue dans un second élément d'un bâtiment modulaire. La première partie comprend un filetage destiné à entrer en prise avec le premier élément. La seconde partie de la cheville a un col en retrait de manière à être saisie par un dispositif de préhension dans le second élément. La cheville comprend une partie de corps à facettes multiples pour permettre à l'utilisateur de tourner et d'aligner la cheville. La partie de corps à facettes multiples comprend au moins deux surfaces pour mettre en butée des blocs du second élément. La partie de corps à facettes multiples comprend au moins deux renfoncements. La cheville est fixée dans une plaque de raccordement. Une couche compressible est positionnée entre la partie de corps à facettes multiples de la cheville et la plaque de raccordement. Un anneau excentrique peut être positionné entre la cheville et la plaque de raccordement.
