Description

  • Technical field of the invention
  • The The invention relates to a protective helmet with a deformable inner helmet, several rigid outer panels, so over the helmets are distributed, that they have at least one skull top plate, at least one occipital plate and several lateral transverse plates form, and connecting means made of elastic material, the Ensure connection between the plates.
  • State of the art
  • at Many sports and leisure activities include wearing a safety helmet indispensable. In general, the helmet is relatively heavy and bulky, with a one-piece outer helmet as protection and security, but at the expense of the user desired aesthetics and wearing comfort.
  • The document describes this WO-A1-9806285 A protective helmet that adapts to the user's headgear, giving him protection, safety and comfort. In the 1 and 2 includes the helmet 1 an inner layer 3 made of a shock absorbing element 2 and several structures 3a to 3g exists that on the shock-absorbing element 2 attached and separated into several uniform sections. The helmet 1 also includes an outer layer 4 consisting of a plurality of longitudinal plates 4a to 4g is formed with substantially identical shape, which are longitudinally spaced to intervene between the structures 3a to 3g insert. The plates 4a to 4g are all connected at their upper edge with an upper rim. The structures 3a to 3g are with the plates 4a to 4g by stretchable connecting means 6 made of flexible elastic material ( 2 ) connected. Thanks to these elastic connections 6 can the structures 3a to 3g remove each other, increasing the size of the helmet 1 when it is placed on the head of the user, can regulate. So this construction of the helmet allows 1 the user, the size of the helmet 1 to adapt to his head measurements.
  • Protection and security are provided by the structures 3a to 3g and the plates 4a to 4g ensured, which consist of relatively rigid materials. The adaptation to the head measurements of the user is made by the elastic connections 6 made of pieces of pliable, elastic textile fabric that make up the structures 3a to 3g with the plates 4a to 4g connect.
  • The deformation of the helmet 1 is not optimal. The plates 4a to 4g they are all aligned longitudinally ( 1 ). Their deformation is thus on the whole circumference of the helmet 1 evenly. This deformation is caused by the elastic connections 6 causes the springback phenomenon of the plates 4a to 4g on the structures 3a to 3g cause. The elastic connections 6 pull the plates 4a to 4g in their rest position and cause a compression effect in the area of the head. The user must therefore expect that his head after prolonged use of the helmet 1 hurts. The adaptation to the head dimensions is therefore not optimal. Just as problematic it is with the comfort, since the shock-absorbing element 2 about the structures 3a to 3g with the plates 4a to 4g connected is. The relative deformations of the plates 4a to 4g and the structures 3a to 3g So hang together.
  • The construction of such a helmet 1 It also causes problems in terms of its dimensions, especially if it is to be stowed because the plates 4a to 4g that with the wreath 5 are connected, rigid and difficult to bend.
  • In addition, the documents describe DE 199 36 368 and US 3208080 each a protective helmet with a large number of small platelets, which are distributed over the entire outer layer of the helmet. Further, the helmet includes in the document DE 199 36 368 a network of strings incorporated into its inner layer to regulate the helmet size according to the user's head size.
  • The construction of these helmets, however, proves to be relatively uncomfortable, and that in the document DE 199 36 368 described regulatory system is not effective and too complicated to use.
  • The document US 4404690 describes a protective helmet with a deformable inner helmet and several rigid outer panels, which are distributed over the inner helmet.
  • Subject of the invention
  • The Invention wants to remedy these disadvantages and has the production a protective helmet adaptable to the different head dimensions is and for Simultaneously optimizes protection and comfort for the user. According to the invention, this goal is by a helmet to the adjacent claims and more precisely achieved in that the plates and the connecting means stretchable material are so connected to the inner helmet that they a slight glide between the helmet and at least one Allow part of the plates.

  • Description of particular embodiments
  • In the 3 and 4 includes a helmet 1 an inner layer that consists of a deformable inner helmet 7 consists, elastic connecting means, for example, of a cap 8th are formed, and an outer layer consisting of a plurality of rigid plates 9 consists. The plates 9 are stuck with the cap 8th connected and by means of the cap 8th hinged together. The cap 8th , which preferably consists of stretchable textile or elastomeric material, covers the inner helmet 7 and ensures the articulated connection between the plates 9 , The plates 9 are so on the cap 8th attached and distributed over this they have a skull top plate 9a , an occipital plate 9b , four lateral cross plates 9c and a face plate 9d form. In the particular embodiment of the in 3 shown helmets 1 the individual plates touch 9 not and are through gaps 10 separated from each other. These separation spaces 10 allow a very elastic hinged movement of the plates 9 when putting on the helmet 1 on the head of the user.
  • The cap 8th is with the inner helmet 7 so connected that when adjusting the helmet 1 Slight sliding between the inner helmet on the head of a user 7 and a part of the plates 9 allows. The connection between the inner helmet 7 and the cap 8th for example, by an envelope of the cap 8th who has the inner helmet 7 over the whole edge of the helmet 1 surrounds. Thus, this structure allows easy sliding between the inner helmet 7 and the cap 8th that the plates 9 wears and moveably connects. The flexibility of the helmet 1 the whole is preserved, and this easy gliding allows easy deformation of the helmet 1 when putting on the helmet 1 on the head of the user.
  • A variant is the connection between the inner helmet 7 and the cap 8th manufacture by the inner helmet 7 and the cap under the skull top plate 9a to be glued. The skull top plate 9a then sits firmly on the helmet 7 while the front plate 9d , the occipital plate 9b and the lateral cross plates 9c the "head circumference" of the helmet 1 form and are intended when putting on the helmet 1 on a head of the user easy gliding concerning an internal helm 7 to ensure.
  • The plates 9 are rigid and preferably made of shockproof material. The selected material should preferably be rigid enough to withstand the impact of shocks on the entire inner helmet 7 to distribute well. The material is selected, for example, from a polycarbonate (PC), a copolymer formed from acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene (ABS), a thermoplastic or thermosetting matrix long fiber composite, or even aluminum. The thickness of the plates 9 is preferably 1 to 3 mm.
  • The plates 9 become by means in the industry produced by known methods, in particular by thermoforming, pressing or drawing. For example, the skull top plate 9a directly on the cap 8th sprayed and can the remaining plates 9 glued or welded to the cap. Likewise, all plates 9 or part of the plates 9 welded, sewn or even glued in the same way.
  • In the in the 5 and 6 illustrated embodiment, the helmet differs 1 from the above embodiment by the shape of the plates 9 , These can be margins 19 with a thickness smaller than or equal to that of the plates 9 is, and intended to, the separation spaces 10 between the plates 9 to prevent any intrusion of sharp objects and to increase the safety of the user. As an example, the edges 19 above or below the adjacent panels 9 stacked together, with which they interact to optimize the safety of the user. In the 5 and 6 include the lateral cross plates 9c margins 19c with the skull top plate 9a and the occipital plate 9b to cooperate, and includes the face plate 9d a border 19d that with the skull top plate 9a and part of the lateral cross plates 9c to interact and includes the occipital plate 9b a border 19b that with the skull top plate 9a should interact.
  • In a further embodiment, not shown, the plates 9 thermoformed in one and the same plate and form a single shell, the inner helmet 7 completely lined, with areas of large thickness covering the plates 9 form, and areas of small thickness, the firmly formed webs that form the plates 9 connect with each other. The areas of small thickness form hinges for the rotational movement of the plates 9 and make it possible to comply with the various safety criteria, in particular as regards the penetration test of a cone prescribed in particular by the EN 1077 standard.
  • In the in the 3 to 6 In particular embodiment shown, the cap is made of textile fabric or an elastomer. Preferably, this is broken to promote ventilation. The cap 8th is preferably made of a puncture resistant material that promotes aeration such as high mechanical strength polyester.
  • In the particular case of a flexible and elastic cap 8th The elasticity must be limited to a large distance of the plates 9 and a possible slippage between the plates 9 and the cap 8th to prevent. This feature is essential, especially in the event that the helmet is subjected to impact with a pointed object to protect the user in accordance with EN 1077 standard for ski helmets.
  • As in the 3 . 4 and 7 . 8th illustrated, includes the helmet 1 advantageously fastening straps 12 that stuck with the cap 8th are connected. The helmet 1 includes a chinstrap 12a and a belt leading to the back of the head 12b , In 6 surrounds the belt leading to the back of the head 12b the inner helmet 7 from above and from behind, thus ensuring the safety and protection against a possible slippage. The chinstrap 12a and the belt leading to the back of the head 12b are for example to the cap 8th sewn or riveted.
  • The in the 7 and 8th shown cap is made of a semi-rigid, honeycomb-like material that absorbs the energy of pressure surges and is bendable by its nature and geometry to when putting on the helmet 1 to adapt the head shape of the user optimally. The helmet 1 behaves like a real deformable protective armor.
  • The inner helmet 7 is made for example by a flat section of a polymer foam board, for example foamed polypropylene. The foam is set to a thickness of about 15 to 30 mm and a density of about 60 to 100 g / l. The shock absorption properties of this type of foam have a "memory effect", thanks to which it can return to its original shape after a shock. After a push on the helmet 1 takes the inner helmet 7 restore its original shape.
  • The inner helmet 7 advantageously comprises a plurality of cutouts 11 on the thickness of the wall of the inner helmet 7 , The cutouts 11 are preferably with respect to the gaps 10 which the plates 9 separated, arranged, in particular for reasons of safety and to prevent a possible penetration of sharp objects. The cutouts 11 have mainly the task of deformation of the inner helmet 7 when putting on the helmet 1 to allow the user's head. They also allow good circulation of air in the ventilation slots 15 that invades the skull top plate 9a are provided ( 3 and 7 ). The slots 15 namely, are preferably opposite the cutouts 11 of the inner helmet 7 ( 7 ).
  • As in the 4 . 7 . 9 and 10 illustrated, includes the helmet 1 advantageously an adjusting element 14 for the head circumference, which is determined the size of the helmet 1 to adjust and to better distribute the pressure on the head circumference of the user to optimize the wearing comfort. The adjusting element 14 is preferably in the occipital plate 9b Integrates and allows all plates 9 covering the head circumference of the helmet 1 make, approach each other: namely the skull top plate 9b , the forehead plate 9d and part of the lateral cross plates 9c , For example, the adjusting element, as in the 4 and 7 shown, from a Schnellbefestigungsgurt or Velcro, the / the Hinterhauptplatte 9b and two lateral cross plates 9c connects with each other.
  • At the in 9 illustrated embodiment of the adjustment 14 the setting is made via a multi-directional lacing system. The adjusting element 14 includes a lace strap 20 holding a firm knurled knob 21 is rolled up, preferably at the Hinterhauptplatte 9b located. The belt 20 connects the plates 9 covering the head circumference of the helmet 1 form, with each other, by pulling points 22 is guided, preferably at the edges of the plates 9 are arranged. Task of the adjustment 14 is it, the button 21 for example, to turn clockwise to the helmet 1 tighten, and counterclockwise, to the helmet 1 too loose. This type of tightening allows simultaneous adjustment of the head circumference and the depth of the helmet 1 ,
  • At another, in 10 illustrated embodiment, the setting is made via a system of a pinion and a rack. The adjusting element 14 includes a tab 23 that with several pips 24 is provided, whereby a rack is provided, which is provided with a pinion 25 interact, preferably on the occipital plate 9b is attached. The tab 23 for example, in extension of a side plate 9c trained and gets into the pinion 25 the occipital plate 9b introduced to the plates 9 covering the head circumference of the helmet 1 make up, approach each other. Task of the adjustment 14 it is the teeth 24 in the pinion 25 glide to the helmet 1 tighten and on two buttons 26 of the pinion 25 to push the tab 23 release and the helmet 1 too loose.
  • In 11 is the arrangement of the three layers, namely the inner helmet 7 , the cap 8th and the plates 9 represented. The cap 8th covers the inside helmet 7 complete, and the cutouts 11 of the inner helmet 7 are related to the spaces between 10 that the plates 9 separate, staggered. The cap 8th represents the flexible connection necessary for a hinged connection of the plates 9 ensures each other. This structure favors so between the inner helmet 7 and the plates 9 intended gliding for optimum deformation of the helmet 1 , The easy game between the inner helmet 7 and the cap 8th that in an exaggerated way in 7 is shown, this possibility of sliding between the inner helmet 7 and the plates 9 ,
  • The embodiment according to 12 differs from the previous embodiment by the shape of the inner helmet 7 , The inner helmet 7 includes thinner areas 16 in the thickness of the wall of the inner helmet 7 to the deformation of the inner helmet 7 to favor. The thinner areas 16 are preferably with respect to the gaps 10 between the plates 9 staggered. This construction of the inner helmet 7 with thinner areas 16 eliminates the danger of penetrating sharp objects through the helmet 1 through, thereby greatly increasing the safety of the user.
  • An in 13 illustrated embodiment is an inner helmet 7 to produce, which has a puff pastry-like structure. The inner helmet 7 consists of a superimposition of slides 27 , which have good Druckstoßdämpfungs- and compliance properties and so to even better deformability of the entire inner helmet 7 and contribute to comfort and safety for the user. The slides 27 , which are preferably made of a foam may be of different nature, to a progressive change in the density of the inner helmet 7 to offer and thereby promote the comfort and the damping of shocks.
  • A variant of the helmet 1 that is schematically in 14 is different from the previous embodiments by the shape of the cap 8th , In the cap 8th are fans 13 formed, in which the plates 9 are located. In the cap 8th firmly connected subjects 13 are the plates 9 free. The subjects 13 consist on the inside of the same material as the cap 8th and on the outside of a much more decorative material. The helmet 1 allows a slight sliding movement between the plates 9 and the cap 8th , The deformation of the helmet 1 is thus optimal, as both between the inner helmet 7 and the plates 9 as well as between the cap 8th and the plates 9 a slight gliding is possible.
  • For example, this embodiment allows the selection of different materials for the subjects 13 that the plates 9 cover, and for example, the use of plates 9 that are coarser worked. The advantage of such a solution with respect to welding or gluing is also the utilization of the possibly elastic properties of fabrics on the whole surface of the cap 8th ,
  • In 15 differs the embodiment of the helmet 1 from the foregoing, by means of the expandable connecting means which provide the articulated connection between the plates 9 to ensure. The inner helmet 7 is stuck with the skull top plate 9a connected and includes cutouts 11 concerning the separation gaps 10 between the plates 9 are arranged offset. The skull top plate 9a and the lateral cross plates 9c are about tapes 17 made of, for example, stretchable material hinged together. The bands 17 For example, consist of the same substance as that for the cap 8th used in the above embodiments.
  • After a in 16 illustrated embodiment, the bands 17 consist of an elastomer. The plates 9 do not touch and the separation gaps 10 between the plates 9 are filled with the elastomer from which the ribbons 17 exist, which prevents possible entry of objects and increases the safety of the user.
  • In 17 can the plates 9 slightly overlap each other to the protective feature of the helmet 1 to prevent the ingress of objects and, in particular, to comply with the requirements of EN 1077. In this particular embodiment, the plates are 9 through ribbons 17 made of stretchable material or an elastomer hinged together and obstructs the overlap of the plates 9 the slight glide between the inner helmet 7 and the plates 9 when putting on the helmet 1 not on the head of the user.
  • Likewise, the helmet can 1 , as in 18 shown, several additional plates 18 include that stuck to the inside helmet 7 connected and opposite the separation gaps 10 between the plates 9 are arranged. The plates 9 are by ligaments 17 made of stretchable material or elastomer hinged together, compared to the additional plates 18 are arranged. Thus, the protective feature of the helmet 1 guaranteed against the ingress of objects.
  • According to another embodiment (not shown), the helmet comprises 1 advantageously a textile outer covering for covering the plates 9 , Through this outer wrapping gets the helmet 1 a much nicer appearance. For example, the outer wrapper may only cover a portion of the plates 9 cover. For example, the skull top plate 9a stay visible and can use the other plates 9b . 9c and 9d to be covered with the outer cladding. By this advantageous embodiment, the helmet 1 get a variety of possible variations by using different material and color combinations for the outer wrap and skull top plate 9a can be chosen.
  • In addition, also a foldable version of the helmet 1 getting produced. The lateral cross plates 9c , the occipital plate 9b and the face plate 9d become the interior of the helmet 1 which significantly reduces its scope. The helmet 1 It can be stored more easily and transported in a backpack, for example.
  • The helmet 1 has many advantages. With such a deformable helmet structure can by the flexible structure, the possibility of sliding between the layers and the adjustment 14 For the head circumference several helmet sizes (2 to 3 sizes) are covered.
  • Such a helmet can cover sizes (e.g. size 50 to 63) with a limited number of benchmarks. There is also the possibility of choosing between two size-cut data specific plates 9 (For example, the skull top plate 9a ) to get only the size of the other plates 9 to change. The number of for the manufacture of the helmet 1 required tools is thus lower.
  • Reducing the weight of the helmet 1 by optimizing the thickness and size of the inner helmet 7 is significant. The useful thickness of the foam of the inner helmet 7 is optimized so that it can take the shape of the head. The reduction of the generally required dead space for better comfort allows an arrangement of the inner helmet 7 as close to the head as possible. The main effect is the reduction of the lever arm effect, which can be triggered by an impact on an area too far away from the head. The helmet 1 does not accelerate before hitting the user's head. The impact is better distributed, which increases comfort and safety.
  • The construction of the helmet 1 with the plates 9 allows a real customization of the helmet 1 and a great fit to the head shape due to the relative mobility of each plate 9 , In particular, the back plate pressed well on the user's head 9b for a better grip of the helmet 1 and gives a greater sense of security. The location and special shape of the plates 9 and spaces 10 ensure optimal deformation. In addition, the user comfort increases as the number of plates increases 9 is.
  • The user experiences no springback, which can lead to headaches, and the helmet 1 has a lower total volume and stays the same still easy and pleasant to put on.
  • The helmet 1 has a more aesthetically pleasing, less overhanging appearance as it looks much more like a cap in appearance. Besides, the helmet is 1 extends the user's field of vision as he sits closer to the head.
  • The deviation of a range of helmets 1 is easy due to all combinations of material and colors in the skull top plate 9a , the other plates 9 and the possible outer cladding that the plates 9 covered. This concept of a helmet 1 is adaptable to styles and functions for different applications: water sports, cycling, motorcycling, skating and inline skating, caving, mountaineering and climbing, skiing and snowboarding, etc.
  • The invention is not limited to the various embodiments described above. As with all types of helmets, the interior of the helmet can 1 Covered with a moisture-absorbing, breathable and antibacterial fabric, the touch of the head and inner helmet 7 to make more pleasant.
  • The inner helmet 7 can be divided into equal pieces, which are individually with the cap 8th are connected. Likewise, in the inner helmet 7 Subjects may be provided with foamed balls. The thus constructed inner helmet 7 is then very well deformable by a granular behavior.
  • The plates 9 can be thermoformed from a plate in a single operation and then cut with a jet of water or digitally controlled machining and then attached to the cap 8th or the tapes 17 be attached.
  • To the ventilation of the helmet 1 To facilitate, the individual plates can 9 in addition to the slots 15 the skull top plate 9a provided with small holes and these are covered with a strong openwork fabric such as "mesh" or a breathable membrane. Similarly, the ventilation can also be in the area of the cap 8th or the bands 17 done by choosing a very breathable fabric.
  • Likewise, other forms of plates 9 , the cap 8th or the bands 17 conceivable, with the construction of the helmet 1 when putting the helmet on the head of the user a slight sliding between at least a part of the plates 9 and the inner helmet 7 permit to optimize its wearing comfort.
