Description

  • The The invention relates to a floor panel according to the preamble of the claim 1 and a floor panel according to the preamble of claim 23.
  • Out WO 01/75247 A1 discloses a floor panel which is attached to a first side edge connecting means for locking in transverse and Vertical direction. These locking devices are on the long side arranged the panel and cause the lock by a Inserting and pivoting the connecting means in a corresponding Recess of a second panel. The transverse side of the panel has two snap hooks, which are in corresponding undercuts an adjacent panel during installation and the vertical movement between the laid panels. The two snap hooks lie in the vertical direction with each other.
  • adversely on such a profile is the fact that such a tread design ensures no secure locking of the panels with each other, because the snap hooks arranged one below the other during the laying movement pressed and with a resilient substrate, such as carpet, at a vigorous Step on the transverse side of the lock pops out. This is also due to that the panel provided with the snap hooks relative to the Corresponding panel slightly angled on appearance, so that the panel is virtually unscrewed.
  • task The present invention is to provide a panel, with a simple installation possible is and that is a secure locking both in the transverse direction as also ensured in the vertical direction.
  • According to the invention Task by a floor panel with the features of the claim 1 and by a panel having the features of claim 23.
  • advantageous Embodiments and developments of the invention are listed in the dependent claims.
  • By the spacing of interlocking elements in the transverse and vertical directions become two spatially separate locking points on the second side edge, especially the transverse side, created, creating a safer lock is ensured to each other laid and laid panels. The order the positive locking elements on two different walls increases the stability of the entire Connection and prevented by sliding over each other a plurality of mutually arranged positive locking elements a deformation the interlocking elements and ensures the Effectiveness of the lock.
  • In A development of the invention is provided that at the first Side edge one in the longitudinal direction the side edge extending spring and on the opposite Side edge formed a recess corresponding to the spring is, wherein the spring is designed such that a lock by insertion into the recess of the second panels and swinging around an axis parallel to the first side edge takes place. Training the connecting elements on the first side edge as a so-called pivot profile allows easy and safe installation and effective locking in vertical and transverse direction. By doing without an elastic Deformation during installation by pivoting the material structure of the panels is maintained and a good strength of the connection is guaranteed. Overall, one can Locking over Such Einschwenkprofil with the same effort during installation be made more stable.
  • The Forming the recess as a groove with an upper lip and a Ensures lower lip, that a secure assignment of the panels to be laid each other done so that a minimal height offset the panels can be achieved, which is a quality feature in floor panels. The spring is latched in the transverse direction in the groove, the lower The front of the spring is rounded to make it light To enable pivoting into the corresponding, trained groove.
  • At the rounded front area joins a flattened, essential horizontally extending support area to the spring, wherein by the support area a precise and large contact surface reached becomes, resulting in a stable edition due to the enlarged effective bearing surface and a reduced bending tendency of adjacent panels leads. The support area ensures a large-scale edition and therefore a precise one Assignment of the two adjacent panels.
  • In order to achieve a cross-effective locking of two panels, in the rear region of the spring is a substantially flat surface at an angle to the horizontal, preferably 45 °, educated. This surface interacts with a corresponding projection in the groove of the adjacent panels and causes a locking in the transverse direction, so that slipping perpendicular to the first side edge is effectively prevented.
  • Around the bearing surface continues to enlarge, closes to the spring a support area for supporting on a groove of the final second panels Heel, which increases the effective contact surface and allows a uniform distribution of force.
  • Around any existing abrasion when laying the first side edges may arise, without this having a gap between The panels produced between the spring and the top of the Panels provided an undercut, which in the laid state a Cavity forms, in which abrasion can accumulate.
  • The second side edge has in one embodiment of the invention from the bottom outgoing, step-shaped cutout with an inner wall and an outer wall on. On these walls are each extending in a transverse direction Formed positive-locking element, preferably milled, the in corresponding undercuts one from the top outgoing, stepped countersink engage the second panels to be connected. The outgoing from the top, stepped countersink also has an inner and an outer wall on which the corresponding undercuts are formed so that it to a positive locking can come in the vertical direction on the second side edge.
  • The from the bottom outgoing, step-shaped cutout points in the direction the bottom protruding paragraph, which is a substantially horizontally aligned head surface forms, this paragraph a in the transverse direction, perpendicular to the second side edge provides effective locking. The essentially horizontally oriented head surface serves to set the minimum vertical offset and represents a relatively large one bearing surface for the introduction of vertically acting forces.
  • The Walls of the heel are at an acute angle to the head face aligned, which is either the easy insertion into a corresponding one Recess of the corresponding cutout of the second panel or but when forming an undercut to the head area one additional locking effect entails.
  • It has been found that a transverse extension of the head surface in one Range of 2mm to 6mm very good durability and a very good Locking effect provides, preferably wherein the head face the 0.25 to 0.4 times the total transverse extent of the stepped cut-out.
  • A special effective and easy locking on the second side edge is given when a positive locking element on the trailing edge of Top protrudes horizontally. It may be appropriate that between the top and the excellent interlocking element a recess is arranged, which is the end edge of the panels undercuts, possibly existing abrasion or deforming material absorb the panels, so that as accurately as possible laying with minimal gap width possible is because no abraded or deformed material has a barrier effect exercises.
  • The the second side edge opposite Side of the panels has an outgoing from the top, step-shaped cutout with a projecting towards the top paragraph. This Paragraph also has a substantially horizontally oriented head face on, wherein in the lower part of the Absatzaußenwandung an undercut is formed, with the corresponding positive-locking element the inner wall of the male side edge corresponds. The arrangement of the recess in the lower region of the Absatzaußenwandung elevated the effectiveness of the lock.
  • A Continuing training provides that between the Absatzinnenwandung and the inner wall of the cutout a horizontal base surface is formed, which is designed such that when laid Panels the head area resting on the base surface and the tops of the panels are in one plane, which means that a minimum or no height offset between the panels. Through the interaction of horizontal base areas and head areas is a particularly accurate order and adjustment of the height offset possible, Likewise, the Abwinkelneigung adjacent panels is reduced, which increases the strength of the lock.
  • The Paragraph inner wall of the outgoing from the top cutout runs parallel or at a shallower angle than the corresponding heel inside of the intervening paragraph, either one precise To cause plant or a movement component for the two Provide panels in the transverse direction to each other.
  • Due to the formation of an undercut through the Absatzinnenwandung to Kopfflä surface of the corresponding paragraph, an additional locking effect is achieved.
  • Around to bring about a particularly simple installation is the one above above paragraph of the outgoing from the top of cutout not over the whole length the second side edge is formed, but is in particular at an end portion of the second side edge facing toward directed with a spring provided first side edge, until on the base surface milled or not trained. By removal or non-education of the protruding paragraph becomes the pivoting about the axis facilitated parallel to the first side edge, so that a blocking effect by the interlocking elements takes place only when the second Side edges of adjacent panels at an acute angle lie to each other. This means that only a short distance returned in vertical direction to completely close the panels at the second side edges lock.
  • advantageously, is the first side edge on the long side and the second side edge formed on the transverse side of the panel, so that the Einschwenkbewegung over the long side he follows. In this way it is ensured that a large locking length by means of the safe and stable swing-in locking is achieved. alternative is provided that the spring and corresponding thereto on the opposite side surface the groove is formed on the transverse side and a positive locking over the Insert into one on the long side introduced cutout he follows.
  • A Particularly stable locking of two floor panels is characterized achieved that a side edge is formed with a spring, wherein the spring is formed so that a lock by Insert into a recess of the second panel and swing in about an axis parallel to the first side edge. By this insertion and pivoting will lock in both Transverse direction as well as in the vertical direction causes, wherein the recess formed as a groove with an upper lip and a lower lip is, in which the spring is latched in the transverse direction. The lower front area is rounded and this front area closes a flattened, substantially horizontally extending support area, through the effective bearing surface is increased. Also through this support area will one possible accurate assignment of the two panels causes each other, so that a maximum accuracy in terms of height offset and a minimum Abwinkelneigung is achieved.
  • A advantageous embodiment of the invention provides that the floor panel at least partially made of a HDF or MDF material becomes. Alternatively, the entire floor panel from a OSB material to be produced, especially for training a profile with the features of claim 23 is suitable. By the Use of an OSB material becomes a natural wood look, as well like a textured surface reached.
  • One Method for laying a floor panel provides that initially a Plural of panels on their second side edges for laying out connected and locked in a first row on the floor of a room become. Subsequently will be another panel with its first side edge at least a panel laid out in the row as the beginning of a second row by inserting and pouring the spring into the corresponding one Groove connected and locked. A new panel will be with its second Side edge immediately abutting at the second side edge of the previously designed further panel in the second row gegenüberlie ing Side edge arranged, wherein the spring is inserted in the groove and the new panel angled to the first row of laid out panels stands. Subsequently The new panel will be around an axis parallel to the first side edge pivoted in the direction of the floor until the interlocking elements of second side edge of the new panel at the corresponding countersink rest of the other panel. Finally, the new panel is depressed until a form-fitting Locking over the entire length the second side edge has taken place. A further education sees before that pressing down preferably pulse-like, in particular by means of one or more hammer blows or a palm-mounted.
  • following is an embodiment of Invention with reference to the attached Figures are described. Same reference numerals in different Figures denote the same objects. Show it:
  • 1 a cross-sectional view of a floor panel having a first side edge;
  • 2 two interconnected panels at the junction in the partial cross section;
  • 3 a floor panel in cross-sectional view with a second side edge; such as
  • 4 two interconnected panels at a second connection point in the partial cross section.
  • 1 shows a floor panel 1 , which consists of a medium density or high density fiberboard (MDF or HDF). At the top 15 is the floor panel with a decorative layer 16 provided, for example, may be formed by a wood grain having paper layer, which is coated with a serving as a wear protection resin layer. On the bottom 7 can be a sound insulation layer 8th glued on to improve the footfall properties of the laid floor panels. As an alternative to using a HDF or MDF board, the panels can 1 be made of an OSB material (oriented strands board). At a first side edge, preferably at the longitudinal side of the panel 1 , is the panel 1 with a spring 10 and on the opposite side with a groove 3 Mistake. The groove 3 and the spring 10 extend over the full length of the side edge. At the spring 10 is an outwardly projecting, rounded nose provided in a rounded front area 11 passes. At this front area 11 closes at the bottom of the spring 10 a flattened, in the installed state in the substantially horizontal extending support area 12 on, over which the panels over 1 on a corresponding surface of the groove 3 a second panel 2 , as in 2 shown, supported.
  • To the support area 12 closes an oblique surface 13 with a corresponding lead 5 the corresponding groove 3 the second panel 2 a lock in the transverse direction Q causes. When assembled, the spring engages 10 in one through an upper lip 4 the groove 3 formed undercut, so that along the first side edge also takes place a lock in the vertical direction V. The lead 5 is through a the groove 3 final paragraph 9 formed, on its upper side a horizontally extending surface is formed. This surface serves as a support for a support area 14 , which adjoins the sloping surface 13 at the groove 10 followed. Through the support area 12 and the support area 14 a relatively large contact surface is provided on which the two panels 1 . 2 in the connected state to each other. The bevelled surface 13 causes, in conjunction with the projection 5 in the case of a force component acting from the top, a component of movement in the transverse direction toward one another, so that in the locked state in the case of a force component acting from above, the gap between the two panels 1 . 2 is reduced.
  • Paragraph 9 is formed so that in the transverse direction Q no contact between a vertically extending surface of the shoulder and an opposite, also vertically extending surface of the first side edge exists. So there is a free space 30 before, so that here no unwanted blocking effect and thus no gap between the two panels 1 . 2 at the top 15 may be present.
  • Between the spring 10 and the top 15 the panels 1 is an undercut 17 formed, which in the assembled state, a free space 18 is formed, can be absorbed in the abrasion or not removed chips from the manufacturing process. Likewise, a corresponding design of the rounded front area 11 provided so that at the top of the spring 10 in the assembled state also a free space 19 is formed, which can act as a dust bag.
  • Laying and locking two panels 1 . 2 done with such a profile picture in which the first panel 1 with the spring 10 angled to the second panel 2 is set and the spring 10 in the groove 3 of the second panel 2 is inserted. Subsequently, the angled first panel 1 pivoted about an axis parallel to the longitudinal direction of the first side edge, in this case in the clockwise direction, so that the rounded front area 11 in the groove 3 slides along until the support area 12 on the corresponding surface of the groove 3 lying flat. In this state, as in the 2 is shown by the undercut of the upper lip 4 and the lead 5 of the paragraph 9 achieved an effective locking in the vertical direction V and transverse direction Q.
  • In order not only to enable locking with another panel on two opposite side edges of one panel, a profile is formed on a second side edge, which extends at an angle, preferably a right angle to the first side edge, in the 3 is shown. Here, too, corresponding profiles are formed on opposite side edges, their interaction in the 4 is shown.
  • 3 shows such a profile at a second side edge in cross-section, which is preferably formed on the transverse side of the panel. From the bottom 7 starting, is a step-shaped cutout 20 in the panel 2 incorporated an inner wall 21 and an outer wall 22 formed. Both on the inner wall 21 as well as on the outer wall 22 are positive locking elements 23 . 24 formed, milled out here, in the form of projections in corresponding undercuts 230 . 240 a corresponding recess 200 a second panel 1 intervention. In the cutout 20 is a paragraph 25 trained towards the bottom 7 protruding, wherein the Absatzaußenwandung of the outer wall 22 is formed and the paragraph inner wall 27 formed in the illustrated embodiment, an upwardly flared cross-section. The bottom of the heel 25 forms a head surface 26 that are parallel to the top 15 the panels 2 runs and on which the panel 2 in the mounted state via a corresponding base surface 280 a corresponding recess 200 a second panel 1 supported.
  • As an alternative to the illustrated embodiment, it is provided that the inner surface 27 substantially parallel to the outer wall 22 runs, leaving the heel wall 27 to the head area 26 forms an undercut. It is also envisaged that in addition to a substantial straight formation of the outer wall 22 at an acute angle α to the vertical, the outer wall 22 has a rounded shape or a vertical course. It is necessary that the positive locking element 24 over the trailing edge 28 the top 15 protrudes to a positive locking with the second panel 1 perform.
  • Above the positive locking element 24 is a recess 29 trained, which acts as a dust bag.
  • Unless the paragraph inside 27 as an undercut to the head area 26 is formed, an additional locking in the vertical direction is provided, in particular if the corresponding paragraph inner wall 270 of the paragraph above 250 is also designed as an undercut. A positive locking then takes place by a slight bending or elastic deformation of the profiles, so that the interlocking elements 23 . 24 and the undercut through the heel inside 27 with the corresponding undercuts 230 . 240 and the undercut through the Absatzinnenwandung 270 can effectively engage.
  • The one from the top 15 outgoing cutout 200 is formed such that it can receive the opposite profile, so that the head surface 26 on the one hand completely flat on the base surface 280 rests, on the other hand, the surfaces 15 the two panels 1 . 2 in the assembled state, as in the 4 is shown, complete in a plane and lie as flush as possible. Through the recess 29 above the positive-locking element 24 becomes a free space 290 created, which serves as a dust bag, the same applies to the free space 300 by a corresponding positioning of the inner wall 210 the cutout 200 is formed.
  • Like in the 4 can be clearly seen, an effective locking is given both in the transverse direction Q and in the vertical direction V, wherein the locking in the transverse direction positively by the paragraphs 25 . 250 is realized. A locking in the vertical direction V is effected by the locking elements 23 . 24 , the form-fitting in the undercuts 230 . 240 engage, wherein the positive locking elements 23 . 24 at spaced apart walls 21 . 22 are arranged. In addition, the positive-locking elements 23 . 24 arranged at different vertical levels, so that an upper locking point and a lower locking point is formed. The upper locking point is determined by the positive locking element 24 and the undercut 240 , the lower locking point through the positive locking element 23 and the undercut 230 educated.
  • The upwardly directed paragraph 250 is not formed over the entire length of the second side edge, but is over an area except for the base surface 280 milled off, with this cutout towards the first side edge with a spring 10 lies. Through this cut-out or non-training of the paragraph 250 can at a laying the first angularly inserted panels are lowered further down before, by a pulse-like assembly movement down a final locking on the second side edge, preferably the transverse side takes place.
  • Between the head area 260 of the paragraph 250 and the corresponding area of the cutout 20 is in the assembled state, a free space available, which is necessary so that the positive locking element 23 the undercut 230 can engage. Also, this space serves as a dust bag.
  • In addition to the formation of a panel with a groove 3 on one side edge, which is an upper lip 4 and a lower lip 6 can, by a corresponding profile design also on a lower lip 6 be waived, if in another way a lock in the transverse direction Q and vertical direction V is ensured. This locking is done so that no movement in the direction of the double arrows in the locked state is possible.
  • Due to the presented profile and the laying method described, it is possible to lay panels easily and quickly. The profile has the further advantage that on the special design of the spring 10 and the groove 3 on the one hand a slight swinging and locking, on the other hand, a stable support and thus the possibility of the most accurate adjustment of the height offset is given. Also, a secure locking of the first side edges in the vertical direction V and transverse direction Q is given and this profile can be particularly well milled in OSB panels.
  • The profile design on the second side edge allows a particularly durable positive lock on the second Seitenkan th, preferably the transverse sides of the panels, without complex additional equipment or special skills would be necessary during installation. In addition to the staggered positive locking elements, the large support surface prevents angling and thereby easy opening of the lock on the second side edge. In addition, the keyed interlock, which produces a characteristic noise, indicates to the user of the panels that an effective interlock has occurred.
