Description

The invention relates to a shower partition with at least two profile rails, which are in particular arranged at right angles to one another and are preferably connected to one another by means of a corner connector.
DE-OS 29 00 001 describes a shower partition and a corner connector for connecting the profile rails of a shower partition. The known shower partition, which is designed as a so-called corner entry, is constructed from frame profile rails, two door elements each being arranged at right angles to one another and being guided in upper and lower profile rails. For mounting on the walls of the building further profile rails are provided on the side, which are connected in a known manner to the other profile rails mentioned. The profile rails can be connected to one another by means of corner connectors or they can be mitered and joined flush with the cut surfaces. Such a shower partition wall ensures that, when the door elements are closed, no water can escape from the interior of the shower cubicle during showering. The outer surfaces of the profiled rails, which are made in particular of extruded aluminum, are relatively sensitive to damage or soiling, the overall impression of such a shower partition wall being considerably impaired by scratches or other damage to the outer surfaces. The same difficulties also occur with shower partitions, in which, for example, three door elements are arranged to be displaceable parallel to one another, while a side wall arranged at right angles to the door elements forms the end of the building wall. Shower partitions are also well known, in which the door elements mentioned are arranged, so to speak, in a single plane between two building walls by means of appropriately designed profile rails. In all of these embodiments of the shower partition walls, there is a risk that the surfaces of the profile rails will be damaged and the overall visual impression on an observer will be adversely affected.
The invention is therefore based on the object, in a shower partition of the type mentioned, to design the profile rails and, if applicable, corner connectors in such a way that their outer surfaces facing the viewer are protected from damage, soiling in a simple and reliable manner and are optimal for the entire service life of the shower partition Overall impression is achieved. In addition, profile rails and corner connectors should be adaptable to the respective installation conditions without difficulty, with the aim of avoiding the costly manufacture and storage of profile rails and corner connectors with differently designed outer surfaces. The shower partition should also be reliable and able to cope with the operational circumstances.
This object is achieved according to the invention in that facing elements are arranged on the outer surfaces of the profile rails and / or the corner connector.
The shower partition according to the invention is characterized by a simple and inexpensive construction, the outer surfaces being protected by means of the facing elements, so that a particularly good overall visual impression is achieved for the entire service life of the shower partition. It is not particularly difficult to manufacture the veneer elements mentioned from a suitable material in order to avoid damage to them during cleaning.
Furthermore, the shower partition can be adapted to the respective installation location without difficulty by suitable design of the facing elements. As a result, an inexpensive

Position enables, as required by the customer, the required facing elements are arranged on the profile rails or corner connectors, so that it is not necessary to keep the profile rails with different external surfaces in stock.
In order to ensure safe and reliable fastening of the facing elements, in a preferred embodiment they can be inserted into a groove or recess in the profile rails or corner connectors. The groove or the recess ensures a firm anchoring of the facing element, and this will therefore remain firmly seated in the profile rails or in the corner connectors even under heavy loads.
The groove advantageously runs in the longitudinal direction of the profile rails, so that practically no additional work is required during manufacture. The facing element designed as a long bar is inserted into this groove in a simple manner. The facing element is expediently fastened in the groove by means of adhesives. A simple and quick production of the profile rail including the facing element is thus achieved.
In a preferred embodiment, in the region of the outer surface, the profile rail has projections which protrude into the groove, behind which projections of the facing element engage. This creates a safe and reliable fastening of the facing element in the profile rail. During manufacture, the facing element is pushed into the groove in the longitudinal direction.
In a preferred embodiment, the profile rail has, in the region of the outer surfaces, comparatively short projections which protrude into the groove and which engage in the facing element. In this embodiment, the facing element is simply pressed into the groove in the direction of the outer surface, or the facing element is clipped in.
In a preferred embodiment, the corner connector has an essentially sector-shaped central part, a sector-shaped facing element being inserted into the recess of the corner connector. Such a configuration of the corner connector enables a particularly simple production of the connection of two profile rails. In this case, the pins arranged on the central part of the corner connector are pushed into the profile rails in a known manner. Then a fixed connection between corner connector and profile rails can be made using screws. It is of crucial importance here that the screws mentioned are screwed into the recess in the central part, so that they are subsequently covered by the facing element used. A particularly elegant corner connection is thus created, the overall effect of which is not impaired by screws or the like for the viewer.
In a preferred embodiment, the outer surfaces of the profiled rails and / or the corner connector have beveled side areas which are each arranged at an angle to the visible surface of the facing elements. Because of the side areas of the outer surface that are bevelled in the specified manner, the profiled rails have a particularly elegant appearance on their visible side facing the viewer. In addition, due to the bevelled side areas, the risk of injury, for example when cleaning the shower partition, is not insignificantly reduced. Profile rails with such bevelled outer surfaces can also be handled particularly easily during manufacture and assembly, since a profile rail or corner connector designed in this way does not have too many sharp edges.
In a particularly expedient embodiment, the widths of the two bevelled sides of a profile rail or a corner connector are essentially the same size. A symmetrical design and an aesthetically particularly appealing shape of the outer surface or the profile rail are thus achieved. At this point it should be expressly emphasized that the outer surface with the beveled side areas is on the visible side of the shower partition facing a viewer. The width of the facing element is expediently at least approximately twice as large as the width of a side region. In this way, a special optical effect is achieved for the viewer and a profiled rail or outer surface designed in this way is distinguished by a good balance in the proportions.
The essentially sector-shaped facing element in the central part of the corner connector is advantageously connected to the corner connector by means of a substantially vertically oriented screw. Such a connection is very simple to produce without the rounded outer surface of the sector-shaped facing element being impaired in any way.
Further advantages and features essential to the invention result from the drawing explained in more detail below. Show it:
1 is an exploded view of a corner connection of two rails arranged at right angles to each other,
2 shows a section through a profile rail transverse to the longitudinal direction,
Fig. 3 shows a section through a further embodiment of a profile rail and
Fig. 4 shows a section through another embodiment of the rail transverse to the longitudinal direction.
In Fig. 1, a corner connection of two profile rails 2 and 4 of a shower partition is shown explosively. This embodiment is a shower partition with a corner entry, the upper corner connection arranged on the ceiling of a building being shown here. The two profile rails 2 and 4 are thus the two upper frame profiles, in which the doors of the shower partition are slidably suspended in a known manner. In the interior of the profile rails, the guide rails 6, 8, 10 can be seen, in which the door elements, not shown here, are suspended. It does not need special mention that the length of the profile rails 2 or 4 in the direction of their longitudinal axes 12 is adapted to the respective conditions. In a corresponding manner, the lower rails are also connected to one another, but also the upper rails shown are connected to the lateral frame rails. The outer surfaces 14, 16 and 18 of the profile rails 2, 4 and a corner connector 20 are arranged essentially vertically. Facing elements 22, 24, 26 are arranged on the outer surfaces mentioned. The facing elements 22, 24 are designed as strips made of wood that extend in the longitudinal direction of the profile rails. The facing element 26 has a substantially sector shape, the front surface 28 being cylindrically rounded. The facing element 26 is also made of wood. It should be emphasized that the facing elements 22, 24, 26 preferably consist of wood, but may also be made of another material. It should be particularly emphasized that at least the surfaces 32, 34, 36 of the facing elements can have any desired structure in order to carry out the necessary adaptation to the surroundings.
From Fig. 1 it can be seen that the corner connector 20 has a central part 38 which has a sector-shaped Ausneh5

mung owns. The sector-shaped facing element 26 is inserted into this recess 40, a screw 42 being provided for fastening. This screw is screwed into the facing element 26 essentially in the vertical direction from above through a corresponding bore in the middle part 38. A cover cap 44 is then placed on the middle part 38 from above, so that the screw 42 also no longer appears to be a nuisance. The corner connector 20 engages with its pins 46, 48 arranged at right angles to one another into the interior of the profile rail, which are fastened vertically from above by means of screws 50, 52. Furthermore, screws 58, 60 are provided through side walls 54, 56 of the corner connector 20 which are arranged at right angles to one another and are screwed into corresponding bores in the profile rails 2, 4. A secure and reliable connection of the profile rails 2, 4 is thus preferably achieved by means of the screws 58, 60. However, these screws 58, 60 are covered by means of the facing element subsequently inserted into the recess 40.
2 shows a section through the profile rail 4 transversely to the longitudinal axis 12. The inside of the profile rail 4 has the above-mentioned guide rails 6, 8, 10, on which the door elements are arranged to be displaceable. The facing element 24 is arranged in a groove 62 on the outer surface 16 shown on the right in the drawing. The profile rail 4 has two projections 64, 66 in the region of its outer edge. The veneer element 24 engages with its approaches in the space behind the projections 64, 66. During assembly, the facing element 24 must be longitudinal, i.e. be inserted into the profile rail 4 perpendicular to the plane of the drawing. The facing element 24 thus inserted into the profile rail is thus securely connected to the profile rail.
3 shows a further embodiment of the profile rail 4, which likewise has a longitudinal groove 62. The facing element 24 is glued into the groove 62 by means of adhesive 72. This type of fastening also ensures a secure connection of profile rail 4 and facing element 24. The outer surface 16 of the profile rail 4 has side areas 17, 19 which adjoin the facing element 24 and are arranged at an angle to the visible surface 25 of the facing element 24 . It is not particularly necessary to mention that the said beveled side regions 17, 19 are each inclined in the opposite direction to the plane specified by the surface 25. The bevelled side areas make cleaning the profile rail easier and give the profile rail a special optical effect, with the pleasing appearance of a profile rail designed in this way being emphasized in particular. The two side areas 17,
19 are of substantially equal size, i.e. they are essentially the same width. A largely symmetrical design of the outer surface 16 is thus achieved. The width of the facing element 24 is advantageously at least approximately twice as large as the width of the said side regions 17, 19, as a result of which a particularly appealing and balanced appearance of the outer surface 16 of the profile rail 4 is achieved.
4, comparatively short projections 74, 76 are provided. The projections 74, 76 mentioned protrude into the groove 62 in the area of the outer surface 16 of the facing element 24 in such a way that the facing element 24 has to be pressed into the groove 62 and thus must be clipped in. This embodiment ensures a particularly fast and reliable production of the connection between the facing element 24 and the profile rail 4.
2 and 3, the configuration of the profile rail 4 was explained. It is not necessary to explicitly mention that the other profile rail 2 is designed in a corresponding manner. As explained with reference to FIG. 3, the profile rail 4 has beveled side areas 17, 19. The corner connector explained in detail with reference to FIG. 1 also has, as is readily apparent from FIG. 1, appropriately designed and beveled side areas. According to the invention, the side areas of the profile rails 2 and 4 merge continuously into the corresponding side areas of the corner connector.
In the shower partition wall explained with the aid of the drawing, the facing elements 22, 24, 26 can be made from different materials, the shower partition wall being adapted to the installation location on the basis of the suitable material selection. In a special embodiment of the shower partition according to the invention, the facing elements are made of wood or at least have a wood structure in their surface. As is known, the use of wood in damp rooms, that is to say in bathrooms, showers, etc., is associated with particular difficulties, but these are surprisingly avoided by the inventive design of the shower partition without any particular effort. The veneer elements, which are made of wood or at least have a wood structure in their surface, give the observer on the visible side the impression of a shower partition wall made essentially of wood, but the profile rails, especially those made of extruded aluminum, are practically not exposed to moisture and especially water vapor to be attacked. Furthermore, the profile rails can be made narrow and shapely in the usual way, while the veneer elements made of wood or with a wooden structure give the impression of a wooden shower partition.
