Such band elements serve on the one hand for
Delimiting the playing surface,
on the other hand as an advertising medium.
Band elements are generally not permanently installed, but rather
open and open regularly
be dismantled. A portable gang element is for example
known from GB 2 244 914. This band element is trapezoidal in cross section

on, which carries a band viewing element designed as a hood. at
the band visual element is usually the advertising element
or the advertising medium.
The carrier element
has two trapezoidal
Side panels on. Is on the two opposite side parts
one handle each is arranged so that that described in GB 2 244 914
Band element can be worn by two people. Because of
the size of the band element
this has the disadvantage that it is difficult. Furthermore, the band element
can only be carried by two people. Building and dismantling
such band elements is therefore complex.
The object of the invention is a
easy to assemble and disassemble, and one of several
To create gang elements existing gang arrangement.
According to the invention, the object is achieved by
the features of claims 1 and 15 respectively.
The band element according to the invention has a
and at least one of the support member
worn band visual element, which is in particular
an advertising element or an advertising medium. According to the invention
the support element
a rolling element and a stand element connected. Because of the provision
a rolling element it is possible
to move the gang element in a transport state. Further
it is guaranteed due to the provision of the stand element,
that the gang element stands securely. By transferring the band element into the

become. The assembly and disassembly of several board elements on one edge of the field is
thus considerably simplified. In particular, the required
The effort required to transport the gang elements is considerably reduced.
The rolling element can
for example, retractable roles. In sunk condition
the gang element then stands securely on the stand elements. To the

exhibit. If four roles are provided, for example
Band element can then be moved in a simple manner.
Preferably, the rolling element
only in the area of an outside,
in particular a narrow side of the carrier element. By
Lifting the band element on the opposite of the rolling element
The band element can then easily be integrated into one side
Transport status are transferred.
This has the advantage that no expensive lever mechanism or
Like. For sinking and extending the rollers is required. Preferably
is the rolling element, which for example consists of two or more roles
exists, arranged such that the axis of rotation of the rolling element is perpendicular
to the longitudinal direction
of the band element,
being the longitudinal direction
runs parallel to the band visual element. This has the advantage
that the band element by lifting an outside in the longitudinal direction
is movable. Across the board viewing element, i.e. across the roll direction
the rolling element, a simple moving is not possible. For example
Forces resulting from a ball hitting the gang visual element thus lead
not to move the band element.
As a stand element are preferred
two feet or
intended. The stand element is in particular arranged opposite the rolling element.
Here, the rolling element is preferably on the area of a narrow side
and the stand element is arranged in the region of the opposite narrow side.
The narrow side of the support element
is the side pointing towards an adjacent band element,
which is essentially perpendicular to the band viewing element.
Two band viewing elements are preferred
provided, in particular opposite each other on the long sides
of the band element are arranged. It is possible to do both

provided receptacles, in particular receiving slots, inserted
This makes it easy to replace the band viewing elements.
In a particularly preferred embodiment of the invention, illuminants are arranged within the band element. The illuminants are used to backlight the gang visual elements. As a result, the advertising effect can be increased and, for example, lettering can be made more legible when using the band visual elements as advertising elements. A cable opening is preferably provided in at least one side part to supply power to the lamps. In particular, cable openings are provided in the two opposite side parts of the carrier element, so that side by side orderly band elements can be arranged directly adjacent to each other and the power cables can be led through the cable openings. Corresponding plugs are preferably provided on the cables, so that in the case of band elements arranged next to one another, the cables can be connected to one another by electrical plug connections. This has the advantage that only the outside of a row of band elements arranged next to one another has to be connected to the power supply.
The control of the lamps
is preferably designed in such a way that the lamps of the
individual band elements can be controlled separately
This can increase the advertising effect by, for example, only
individual band elements are backlit, the backlighting
is switched on and off, etc. Furthermore, it is possible, for example with the help
a suitable control, the lamps are placed side by side
Switch the gang elements on and off in order, so that the
Light passes through the band elements. It is also possible at sporting events
To run sweepstakes that
work with lighting effects.
It is particularly preferred to use several
Band elements next to each other, in particular completely surrounding a playing field
to be arranged as a band arrangement.
The invention is explained below

The band element according to the invention has a carrier element 10 on. The carrier element 10 has a floor element 12 on that lengthways 14 of the band element extends. On the two narrow sides of the floor element 12 are two essentially trapezoidal side parts in the illustrated embodiment 16 . 18 arranged, which are connected to the bottom element, for example by welding. The two side parts 16 . 18 are over a ceiling part 20 connected together, the ceiling part 20 the floor element 12 opposite, is arranged substantially parallel to this.
The floor element 12 of the carrier element 10 is connected to a rolling element, the two wheels in the illustrated embodiment 22 ( 2 ) includes. The two wheels 22 are in the area of the side part 18 arranged. For storing the wheels 22 are two horizontally aligned axes 24 intended. The axes 24 are over a footbridge 26 with a lower bottom part 28 of the floor element 12 and with a vertical bottom part 30 connected. The vertical bottom part 30 is with the upper bottom part 32 connected. The floor element 12 has a tunnel-like or U-shaped configuration due to the configuration shown. This increases the rigidity of the floor element. The side wall 18 has U-shaped slots 34 on so the wheels 22 in the longitudinal direction laterally over the side part 18 protrude. If the band elements are arranged side by side, there is a side part 18 directly on a side part 16 of the adjacent band element. To project the wheels from the side 22 to allow, therefore, the side panel 16 also U-shaped slots 36 ( 3 ) on.
On the rolling element 22 opposite side of the floor element 12 , ie in the area of the side part 16 , are stand elements 38 , for example cylindrical plastic feet or the like, with the bottom element 12 , especially the bottom part 28 connected. A board element standing on the edge of the field therefore stands on the two reels 22 as well as the two stand elements 38 , Because the roles 22 are arranged such that only when the band element is moved in the longitudinal direction 14 is possible is a movement perpendicular to this direction in the direction of an arrow 40 ( 2 ) not or not easily possible. A displacement of the board by balls flying against the board, for example, is thus avoided.
The carrier element 10 is used in the illustrated embodiment to accommodate two flat band viewing elements 42 . 44 ( 2 and 3 ). With the gang visual elements 42 . 44 are flat plastic plates that serve as advertising media. For holding the gang visual elements 42 . 44 are on the outer edges 46 of the side part 16 as well as on outer edges 48 of the outer part 18 Recordings in the form of recording slots 50 intended ( 1 and 4 ). The along the outside edges 46 . 48 running receiving slots are open at the top, so that the plate-shaped band viewing elements 42 . 44 can be inserted from above. To further fix the position of the gang elements 42 . 44 is along the outside edge 52 ( 1 ) of the floor element 12 another slot 54 arranged in a lower edge 56 ( 3 ) of the gang visual elements 42 . 44 slides in. To slip into the slot 54 is between the top of the bottom 32 and the receiving slot 54 a bridge or bridge element 58 intended. On the jetty 58 the lower edge slips 56 the gang visual elements 42 . 44 outwards and is in the receiving slot 54 directed.
To further fix the position of the board visible elements 42 . 44 as well as protection against injury cover part 20 with a padded or soft rubber cover with a U-shaped cross-section 55 ( 2 and 3 ) Mistake. The lid 55 extends over the entire width of the carrier element 10 or over the entire length of the ceiling part 20 , The approaches of the U-shaped lid 55 cover the upper edges of the band visual elements 42 . 44 ,
On the ceiling part 20 that between the two side panels 16 . 18 is arranged on the underside facing the inside of the band element 60 longitudinal 14 two tubular lamps 62 arranged. Along the side part 18 are power cables 64 down towards the floor element 12 guided. On the floor element 12 is a cable strip 66 provided in the longitudinal direction 14 runs. Inside the cable tray 66 the power cables are routed. Through the cable strip 66 are also the power cables 68 led for adjacent gang elements. The cable 68 points towards the side part 18 pointing end of a plug head 70 on. On the opposite side in the area of the side part 16 is a plug 72 intended. For passing the plug head through 70 through the side panel 18 as well as the adjacent side part 16 an adjacent band element have the side parts 16 . 18 one cable opening each 74 on. It is therefore possible to use the plug head 70 into the connector 72 of the adjacent band element, so that in the case of a plurality of band elements arranged next to one another, only the first or last band element of the row has to be connected to a power supply. The individual band elements are preferably supplied with power in such a way that the lamps 62 of the individual band elements can be controlled separately. The two gang visual elements 42 . 44 can be designed in such a way that the band viewing element pointing in the direction of the playing field has a higher light permeability than the viewing element pointing in the direction of the auditorium. Likewise, the inner surfaces of the side panels 16 . 18 of the floor element 12 and / or the inside of the band view element, which may or may not be lightly transparent, may be provided with a reflective coating in order to improve the illumination of the band element.
Since several band elements are preferably arranged next to one another and electrically connected to one another in a band element arrangement, connecting elements are preferably provided for connecting two adjacent band elements. The connecting elements can be hooks, locking elements or the like. According to the invention, however, it is sufficient to provide centering elements as the connecting element, etc. This is for example one in the side part 16 provided hole 76 , in the one on the side part 18 provided mandrel engages.
To transport the band element, the band element is on the side part 16 raised so that the stand elements 38 be at a distance from the ground. It is then possible to use the rolling element with the help of the rolling elements 22 in the direction of the arrow 14 ( 1 ) to move. Only the rollers come in this transport state 22 in contact with the ground so that the gang elements can be easily moved and maneuvered. This ensures easier assembly and disassembly of the board elements. A transportation aid can be used to simplify transportation 80 ( 5 ) are used. The transportation aid 80 has a support element 82 on that with roles 84 and an arm 86 connected is. The edition is used for transport 82 and a bottom edge 88 ( 1 ) of the side part 16 pushed. For this, the holding arm 86 in the direction of an arrow 90 be raised so that the edition 82 under the edge 88 can be pushed. By lowering the holding arm 86 in the opposite direction of the arrow 90 becomes the side part 16 raised. The hinge part can be moved very easily in this way.
