Description

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Paneel, insbesondere Fußbodenpaneel, mit den Merkmalen des Oberbegriffes des Anspruches 1, das mechanisch mit weiteren Paneelen mechanisch verbunden werden kann. The invention relates to a panel, in particular floor panel, with the features of the preamble of claim 1 which can be mechanically connected mechanically with other panels. Derartige Paneelen werden in typischer Weise für einen Bodenbelag, beispielsweise Parkett oder Laminatfußboden, oder für Decken- und Wandverkleidungen verwendet. Such panels are typically used for a floor covering, such as parquet or laminate flooring, or for ceiling and wall coverings.

In allen Fällen lassen sich die einzelnen Paneelen durch eine mechanische Verbindung, dh Verriegelung, zu einer flächigen Gesamtheit vereinen, so daß ein Verlegen der Paneelen ohne Klebstoffe oder zusätzliche mechanische Befestigungselemente, z. In all cases, the individual panels can be by a mechanical connection, that is locking which combine to form a flat entity so that a laying of the panels without adhesives or additional mechanical fastening elements, such. B. Schrauben oder Nägel, möglich ist. , Is possible as screws or nails. Insbesondere ergibt sich daraus der Vorteil, daß die Paneelen sich ohne ein Verleimen verlegen und somit wieder entfernen lassen können. In particular, this results in the advantage that the panels be laid without gluing and thus can be removed again.

Aus der JP 3-169967 A ist eine mechanische Verbindung von Fußbodenpaneelen bekannt. From JP 3-169967 A a mechanical connection of flooring panels is known. Die Paneelen weisen entlang einer Seitenkante eine darin ausgebildete Nut auf, die von einer oberen Lippe und einer unteren Lippe gebildet wird und sich parallel zur Seitenkante erstreckt. The panels have along one side edge in a groove formed therein, which is formed by an upper lip and a lower lip and extends parallel to the side edge. An der gegenüberliegenden Seitenkante des gleichen Paneels ist eine Feder ausgebildet, die sich parallel zu dieser Seitenkante erstreckt. On the opposite side edge of the same panel is a spring formed which extends parallel to this side edge. In der Nut ist eine Vertiefung ausgebildet, die eine schräg zur Oberseite des Paneels verlaufende Verriegelungsoberfläche aufweist. In the groove a recess is formed which has a running obliquely to the top of the panel locking surface. An der Feder ist ein dazu korrespondierendes Verriegelungselement ausgebildet, die eine schräg zur Oberseite verlaufende Verriegelungsoberfläche aufweist. On the spring, a locking element is designed corresponding thereto, which has an obliquely extending to the top of the locking surface. Des weiteren sind in der Nut und an der Feder im Bereich der jeweiligen Seitenkante parallel zur Oberseite verlaufende Paßflächen ausgebildet, die als Widerlager für die Verriegelungsoberflächen der Vertiefung der Nut und des Verriegelungselements der Feder dienen. Furthermore, extending parallel to the top mating surfaces are formed in the groove and at the spring in the region of the respective side edge, which serve as abutments for the interlocking surfaces of the groove of the groove and the locking element of the spring. Die Paßfläche der Nut überdeckt dabei in Richtung parallel zur Oberseite die Verriegelungsfläche, die gegenüberliegend in der Nut ausgebildet ist. The mating surface of the groove this case covers in the direction parallel to the upper surface of the locking surface, which is formed opposite in the groove. Gleiches gilt für die Paßfläche und die Verriegelungsfläche der Feder, da die Profile der Nut und der Feder zumindest in diesen Abschnitten korrespondierend ausgebildet sind. The same applies for the fitting surface and the interlocking surface of the spring, because the profiles of the groove and the tongue are designed to correspond at least in these sections. Die Paßflächen und die Verriegelungsoberflächen liegen im verriegelten Zustand der Verbindung Paarweise aneinander an, um die oberen Flächen der Seitenkanten in Anlage aneinander zu halten. The fitting surfaces and the interlocking surfaces are in the locked state of the connection in pairs against one another to hold the upper surfaces of the side edges in contact with one another. Somit wird durch das Zusammenwirken der Paßflächen und der Verriegelungsflächen erreicht, daß die aneinander anstoßenden Seitenkanten zweier Paneelen eng aneinander anliegen und eine nahezu spaltfreie Verbindung bilden. Thus is achieved by the cooperation of the fitting surfaces and the interlocking surfaces, that the mutually abutting side edges of two panels rest tightly against one another and form a nearly gap-free connection.

Weiterhin ist aus dem Stand der Technik der WO 96/27721, von der die vorliegende Erfindung ausgeht, eine an den beiden Seitenkanten eines Fußbodenpaneels ausgebildete Nut-Feder-Verbindung bekannt, die mit Verriegelungsoberflächen für eine sogenannte Klickverbindung versehen ist. Further, an opening formed at the two side edges of a floor panel tongue and groove is known from the prior art WO 96/27721, from which the present invention is based, is known which is provided with locking surfaces for a so-called click connection. Im verriegelten Zustand sind den Verriegelungsoberflächen erste Paßflächen zugeordnet, die als Widerlager dienen und die Verriegelungsoberflächen im verriegelten Zustand in Anlage aneinander halten. In the locked state the locking surfaces of the first mating surfaces are associated, which serve as an abutment and hold the locking surfaces in the locked state in contact with one another. Des weiteren sind zweite und dritte Paßflächen sowohl an der Feder als auch an der Nut ausgebildet, um eine Stabilisierung der verriegelten Verbindung zu erreichen. Further, second and third mating surfaces are formed on both the spring and on the groove, in order to achieve a stabilization of the latched connection.

Weitere mechanische Verbindungen von Paneelen sind aus dem Stand der Technik der WO 94/26999, WO 97/47834 und WO 98/58142 bekannt. Other mechanical connections of panels are known from the prior art WO 94/26999, WO 97/47834 and WO 98/58142.

Den aus dem Stand der Technik bekannten mechanischen Verbindungen von Paneelen ist auf der einen Seite gemeinsam, daß sie zwar in Richtung parallel zur Oberseite der Paneelen gerichtet eine zuverlässige mechanische Verriegelung ermöglichen, daß sie jedoch nur eine geringe Steifigkeit gegenüber einem Verdrehen des Paneels um die aneinander angrenzenden Seitenkanten aufweisen. Known from the prior art mechanical connections of panels is in common on one side, that although they oriented parallel to the top surface of the panels in the direction of allow a reliable mechanical interlock, however, that they only a low rigidity against a twisting of the panel to each other having adjacent side edges. Somit können relativ einfach die Paneelen gegeneinander verschwenkt werden, so daß es zu einem Lösen der mechanischen Verbindung kommt. Thus, the panels can be pivoted against each other relatively easily so that it comes to a loosening of the mechanical connection. Dieses ist teilweise sogar im Stand der Technik für ein einfaches Verlegen der Paneelen gewünscht. This is in some cases desired in the art for a simple installation of the panels. Zum anderen weisen aus diesem Stand der Technik bekannte Paneelen zwar eine ausreichende Steifigkeit gegenüber dem zuvor erwähnten Verkanten und Verschwenken der Paneelen zueinander auf, jedoch besitzen diese Verbindungen keine ausreichende Festigkeit der Verriegelung der Paneelen miteinander auf. On the other hand have from this prior art known panels, although a sufficient rigidity against the aforementioned tilting and pivoting of the panels on one another, however, these compounds do not have sufficient strength of the locking of the panels to each other.

Der Erfindung liegt daher das technische Problem zugrunde, eine mechanische Verbindung von Paneelen mit verbesserten Verriegelungs- und Stabilitätseigenschaften anzugeben. The invention is therefore based on the technical problem of providing a mechanical connection of panels with improved locking and stability characteristics.

Das zuvor aufgezeigte technische Problem wird erfindungsgemäß durch ein Paneel mit den Merkmalen des Anspruches 1 gelöst. The above technical problem is solved by a panel having the features of claim 1.

Erfindungsgemäß ist somit erkannt worden, daß zusätzlich zur Verriegelung der Feder innerhalb der Nut Paßflächen angeordnet werden, die eine Stabilisierung der Verbindung gegenüber einem Verkanten der Paneelen zueinander bewirken. According to the invention has thus been recognized that additionally be arranged for locking the spring within the groove fitting surfaces which bring about a stabilization of the compound to a tilting of the panels to each other. Die Verriegelung wird somit durch das Paar von Verriegelungsoberflächen und dem als Widerlager dazu dienenden Paar von Paßflächen, die im Bereich der Seitenkanten angeordnet sind verwirklicht, realisiert. The latch is thus realized by the pair of interlocking surfaces and as an abutment serving to pair of mating surfaces which are arranged in the region of the side edges, realized. Ein Auseinanderbewegen der beiden Paneelen in einer Ebene parallel zu den Oberseiten und senkrecht zu den Seitenkanten wird also durch die von den Verriegelungsoberflächen erzeugten Kraft wirkungsvoll verhindert. Moving apart of the two panels in a plane to the side edges is thus effectively prevented by the generated surfaces of the locking force parallel to the top sides and perpendicular. Die Stabilisierung der beiden Paneelen im verriegelten Zustand gegenüber einem Verkanten oder Verschwenken entlang der Seitenkanten wird durch die zusätzlichen Paßflächen im Bereich des Nutgrundes bzw. der Endfläche der Feder erreicht. The stabilization of the two panels in the locked state with respect to a tilting or pivoting along the side edges is achieved by the additional fitting surfaces in the region of the groove bottom or the end surface of the spring. Somit werden die Verriegelung einerseits und die Stabilisierung der Ausrichtung der beiden Paneelen von unterschiedlichen Paßflächenpaaren gebildet. Thus, the lock on the one hand and the stabilization of alignment of the two panels are formed of different Paßflächenpaaren.

Ein weiterer Vorteil der erfindungsgemäßen mechanischen Verbindung von Paneelen liegt darin, daß die beiden Funktionsgruppen der Verriegelung und Ausrichtungsstabilisierung entlang einer Feder bzw. einer Nut ausgebildet sind, so daß ein gerade im Bereich von Laminatfußböden gewünschte geringe Dicke des Paneels eingehalten werden kann. A further advantage of the mechanical connection of panels according to the invention is that the two functional groups of the locking and alignment stabilization along a spring or a groove are formed so that a precisely desired in the region of laminate flooring small thickness of the panel can be maintained.

Erfindungsgemäß ist der Abstand zwischen der Nutverriegelungsfläche und der ersten Nutpaßfläche im Bereich der Seitenkanten größer als der Abstand zwischen der Paßflächen im Bereich des Nutgrundes bzw. der Endfläche der Feder. According to the invention the distance between the first and the Nutverriegelungsfläche Nutpaßfläche in the region of the side edges is greater than the distance between the fitting surfaces in the region of the groove bottom or the end surface of the spring. Dadurch wird erreicht, daß das zu Beginn des Herstellens der mechanischen Verbindung als erstes in die Nut eintretende Ende der Feder leicht von der Nut aufgenommen werden kann, da, sofern beide Paneelen auf dem gleichen Untergrund angeordnet sind, die Feder ohne mechanischen Widerstand ein vorgegebenes Stück in die Nut eindringen kann, so daß während des Zusammenfügens der Paneelen keine Schwierigkeiten auftreten, die im Stand der Technik beispielsweise durch ein Ansetzen und Verschwenken der Paneelen zueinander hervorgerufen werden. It is thereby achieved that the can be added at the beginning of creating the mechanical connection as the first entering the groove end of the spring slightly from the groove, because, provided that both panels are arranged on the same ground, the spring without mechanical resistance a predetermined distance can penetrate into the groove so that no problems occur during the joining of the panels, which are caused in the prior art for example, by attaching and pivoting of the panels to each other. Zudem verjüngt sich die Nut von ihrer Öffnung hin bis zum Nutgrund bzw. die Feder von dem dem Paneel zugewandten Ende zur Endfläche hin, wodurch die Stabilität der Profile der Seitenkanten beider Paneelen verbessert wird. In addition, the groove tapers from its opening to the groove base or the spring of the end facing the panel to the end face out of which the stability of the profiles of the side edges of both panels is improved.

Dazu kann eine weitere Oberfläche in der Nut ausgebildet sein, die schräg zur Oberseite verläuft und die der Vertiefung gegenüberliegend angeordneten Paßflächen miteinander verbindet. For this purpose, a further surface can be formed in the groove which extends obliquely to the top and connects the deepening of the opposite mating surfaces disposed with each other. Ebenso kann auf der anderen Seite der Nut eine schräg zur Oberseite verlaufende Oberfläche ausgebildet sein, die die Verriegelungsfläche mit der im Bereich des Nutgrundes angeordnete Paßfläche verbindet. Also, a running obliquely to the top surface may be formed on the other side of the groove, which joins the locking surface with the arranged in the region of the groove bottom mating surface.

Des weiteren ist es bevorzugt, daß die Endfläche der oberen Lippe und die Endfläche der unter Lippe, die gemeinsam die Nut bilden, im wesentlichen einer Ebene angeordnet sind. Furthermore, it is preferred that the end face of the upper lip and the end surface of the are arranged under lip, which together form the groove is substantially a plane. Mit anderen Worten erstrecken sich die beiden Lippen im wesentlichen gleich weit entlang der Seitenkante, so daß bei einem Herstellen der mechanischen Verbindung der Paneelen die zum Verrasten erforderliche Kraft mittels eines Schlagklotzes ausgeübt werden, wobei der Schlagklotz sowohl an der oberen als auch an der unteren Lippe anliegt und eine möglichst große Angriffsfläche erhält. In other words, the two lips extend essentially the same distance along the side edge, so that the required for latching force can be exerted by means of an impact pad for a making the mechanical connection of the panels, wherein the tapping block both the upper and on the lower lip bears and receives the largest possible contact surface. Dadurch werden wirkungsvoll Beschädigungen der Seitenkanten vermieden. This effectively damage the side edges are avoided.

Darüber hinaus ist es bevorzugt, daß die obere Lippe und die untere Lippe einstückig mit dem Paneel ausgebildet sind. Moreover, it is preferable that the upper lip and the lower lip are formed integrally with the panel. Dieses ist herstellungstechnisch durch ein Herausfräsen des Profils der Nut bzw. des Profils der Feder aus der Seitenkante des Paneels möglich, woraus sich herstellungstechnisch Vorteile ergeben. This is technically feasible production by milling out of the profile of the groove or of the profile of the spring from the side edge of the panel, which gives rise of production engineering advantages. Daneben ist es selbstverständlich auch möglich, die Feder, die obere und/oder untere Lippe separat herzustellen und diese mit den Paneelen zu verbinden, um die gleichen Verriegelungs- und Ausrichtungsstabilisierungseigenschaften zu erlangen. In addition, it is of course also possible for the spring to produce the upper and / or lower lip separately and to connect them to the panels in order to gain the same interlocking and orientation stability properties.

Sämtliche der nachfolgend beschriebenen Oberflächen erstrecken sich ganz oder zumindest abschnittsweise entlang einer Längs- oder Querkante der Paneelen 1 und 2, die im folgenden allgemein als Seitenkanten bezeichnet werden. All of the surfaces described below extend entirely, or at least in sections, along a longitudinal or transverse edge of panels 1 and 2 which are generally referred to hereinafter as side edges.

Fig. 1 zeigt ein Paneel 1, in deren äußere Kante 3 eine Nut 34 eingearbeitet ist. Fig. 1 shows a panel 1, in which the outer edge 3 a groove 34 has been incorporated. Dazu weist die Kante 3 eine Vielzahl von unterschiedlich zur Oberfläche 5 geneigte Oberflächen auf, die im folgenden beschrieben werden. 3 this purpose, the edge on a plurality of differently to the surface 5 inclined surfaces, which are described in the following.

Eine Oberfläche 11 ist im oberen Bereich der Kante 3 benachbart zur Oberseite 5 angeordnet. A surface 11 is adjacent the top of the edge 3 to the top surface 5 is arranged. Eine Oberfläche 11a verläuft unter einem flachem Winkel zur Oberfläche 11 geneigt in Richtung des Nutgrundes 7. Eine Oberfläche 12 verläuft im wesentlichen parallel zur Oberseite 5 in Richtung des Nutgrundes 7 von der Oberfläche 11a aus betrachtet. A surface 11 extends at a shallow angle to the surface 11 is inclined in the direction of the groove bottom 7. A surface 12 extends essentially parallel to top side 5 in the direction of groove bottom 7 as viewed from the surface 11a. An die Oberfläche 12 schließen sich Oberflächen 13 und 14 an, wobei die Oberfläche 13 unter einem flachen Winkel nach unten weisend die Oberflächen 12 und 14 miteinander verbindet. To the surface 12, surfaces 13 and 14 close to, the surface 13 facing 12 and 14 connects at a shallow downward angle, the surfaces together. Dabei ist die Oberfläche 14 parallel zur Oberseite 5 des Paneels 1 ausgerichtet und endet am Nutgrund 7. Somit bilden die Oberflächen 12, 13 und 14 den oberen Rand der Nut 34 in dem Paneel 1. The surface 14 is oriented parallel to top side 5 of the panel 1, and ends at groove bottom 7. Thus forming the surfaces 12, 13 and 14 the upper edge of the groove 34 in the panel. 1

Die untere Oberfläche der Nut 34 wird durch Oberflächen 15, 16, 17 und 18 gebildet, die wie folgt ausgerichtet sind. The bottom surface of the groove 34 is formed by surfaces 15, 16, 17 and 18, which are aligned as follows. Die Oberfläche 15 verläuft parallel zur Oberfläche 14, sie ist somit auch im wesentlichen parallel zur Unterseite 6 ausgerichtet. The surface 15 is parallel to surface 14, it is thus also aligned substantially parallel to the underside. 6 Die Oberfläche 16 schließt sich an die Oberfläche 15 an und verläuft schräg nach unten unter einem flachen Winkel zur Oberfläche 15. Die sich anschließende Oberfläche 17 ist entgegengesetzt nach oben ausgerichtet, wobei der Anstiegswinkel der Oberfläche 17 betragsmäßig größer als der Winkel der Oberfläche 16 ist, den dieser mit der horizontal verlaufenden Oberfläche 15 bildet. The surface 16 adjoins the surface 15 and slopes downwardly at a shallow angle to the surface 15. The subsequent surface 17 is oriented opposite to the top, wherein the rise angle of the surface 17 is greater in magnitude than the angle of surface 16 this forms the to the horizontally extending surface 15 °. An die Oberfläche 17 schließt sich die Oberfläche 18 an, die parallel zur Oberfläche 12 und somit zur Oberseite 5 bzw. Unterseite 6 des Paneels 1 ausgerichtet ist. To the surface 17, the surface 18 connects, which is aligned parallel to the surface 12 and thus to top side 5 or underside 6 of panel. 1

Die Oberfläche 19 bildet die untere Endfläche der Kante 3 und ist im wesentlichen parallel zur Oberfläche 11 ausgerichtet. The surface 19 forms the lower end surface of edge 3, and is oriented substantially parallel to the surface. 11 Vorzugsweise liegen die Oberflächen 11 und 19 dabei in einer Ebene. the surfaces 11 and 19 preferably lie in one plane. Die Oberfläche 19a bildet den Übergang zwischen den Oberflächen 18 und 19 und ist schräg nach innen gerichtet geneigt angeordnet. The surface 19 forms the transition between the surfaces 18 and 19 and is arranged obliquely inwardly inclined.

Die Nut 34 des Paneels 1 wird somit durch eine obere Lippe 30 und eine untere Lippe 31 gebildet. The groove 34 of the panel 1 is thus defined by an upper lip 30 and a lower lip 31 is formed. Dabei wird die obere Lippe 30 durch die Oberflächen 5, 11, 11a, 12, 13 und 14 umrandet, wobei die Oberfläche 11 die Endfläche der oberen Lippe 30 bildet. The upper lip is surrounded by surfaces 5, 11, 11a, 12, 13 and 14 30, wherein the surface 11 forms the end surface of upper lip 30th Die untere Lippe 31 wird von den Oberflächen 6, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 und 19a umgrenzt, wobei die Oberfläche 19 die Endfläche der unteren Lippe 31 bildet. The lower lip 31 is bounded by the surfaces 6, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 19a, wherein the surface 19 forms the end face of the lower lip 31st

Fig. 2 zeigt ein Paneel 2, die an einer Kante 4 eine Feder 32 aufweist, die vorzugsweise integral mit dem Paneel 2 ausgebildet ist. Fig. 2 shows a panel 2, which has a spring 32 on one edge 4, which is preferably integrally formed with the panel 2. Die Kante 4 weist eine obere Fläche 21 auf, die sich an die Oberseite 9 des Paneels 2 anschließt. The edge 4 has an upper surface 21 which adjoins the upper side 9 of the panel. 2 Dabei verläuft die Oberfläche 21 im wesentlichen vertikal nach unten. The surface 21 extends essentially vertically downward. Die Feder 32 wird von Oberflächen 22, 23, 24, 8, 25, 26, 27 und 28 umschlossen. The spring 32 is surrounded by surfaces 22, 23, 24, 8, 25, 26, 27 and 28th Die Oberfläche 22 verläuft im wesentlichen horizontal und somit parallel zur Oberfläche 9 des Paneels 2. Die Oberfläche 23 ist unter einem flachen Winkel nach unten geneigt ausgerichtet und verbindet die beiden Oberflächen 22 und 24 miteinander. The surface 22 extends substantially horizontally, and thus parallel to surface 9 of panel 2. Surface 23 is inclined downwardly oriented at a shallow angle and the two surfaces 22 and 24 connecting with each other. Die Oberfläche 24 ist wiederum parallel zur Oberseite 9 des Paneels 2 ausgerichtet und erstreckt sich somit im wesentlichen horizontal. The surface 24 is in turn oriented parallel to top side 9 of panel 2, and thus extends essentially horizontally. Die Oberfläche 24 endet an der Endfläche 8 der Feder 32. The surface 24 terminates at the end face 8 of the spring 32nd

Die unteren Oberflächen der Feder 32 haben folgende Ausrichtungen. The lower surfaces of spring 32 have the following orientations. Die Oberfläche 25 grenzt an die Endfläche 8 an und verläuft parallel zur Oberfläche 24 bzw. im wesentlichen parallel zur Unterseite 10 des Paneels 2. Die Oberfläche 26 verläuft von der Endfläche 8 der Feder 32 wegweisend nach unten, während die Oberfläche 27 wieder schräg nach oben verlaufend ausgerichtet ist. The surface 25 is adjacent to the end face 8 and parallel to the surface 24 and substantially parallel to the underside 10 of panel 2. Surface 26 extends from the end surface 8 of spring 32 leading the way to bottom, while the surface 27 again obliquely upwards is oriented to run. Dabei ist der Steigungswinkel der Oberfläche 27 größer als der Winkel der Oberfläche 26, den diese mit der horizontalen einschließt. In this case, the slope angle of the surface 27 is greater than the angle of the surface 26, this forms with the horizontal. Die Oberfläche 28 schließt sich an die Oberfläche 27 an und geht in die Oberfläche 29 der Kante 4 über. The surface 28 adjoins the surface 27 and passes into the surface 29 of the edge. 4 Die Oberfläche 29 verläuft dabei im wesentlichen vertikal, also senkrecht zur Unterseite 10 des Paneels 2. Die Oberflächen 21 und 29 sind somit im wesentlichen parallel zueinander ausgerichtet, liegen jedoch nicht in einer Ebene, sondern die Oberfläche 29 ist geringfügig in Richtung des Körpers des Paneels 2 gegenüber der Oberfläche 21 zurück versetzt. The surface 29 in this case runs substantially vertically, that is perpendicular to the underside 10 of panel 2. Surfaces 21 and 29 are thus aligned substantially parallel to each other but do not lie in a plane, but the surface 29 is slightly in the direction of the body of the panel 2 with respect to the surface 21 set back.

Fig. 3 zeigt die beiden Paneelen 1 und 2, die mechanisch miteinander verbunden sind. Fig. 3 shows the two panels 1 and 2, which are mechanically connected to each other. Dazu steht die Feder 32 des Paneels 2 mit der oberen Lippe 30 und der unteren Lippe 31 der Nut 34 des Paneels 1 in Eingriff. To this is the spring 32 of the panel 2 with the upper lip 30 and lower lip 31 of the groove 34 of the panel 1 is engaged.

Im verrasteten, bzw. verriegelten Zustand liegen die zuvor beschriebenen Oberflächen der Nut 34 einerseits und der Feder andererseits zumindest teilweise paarweise flächig aneinander an. In the latched or interlocked state, the above-described surfaces of groove 34 are on the one hand and the spring on the other hand at least partially flatly against one another in pairs. Daraus ergeben sich zumindest die mit den offenen Dreiecken und den Großbuchstaben A, B, C und D gekennzeichneten Paare von Paßflächen 12,22; This results in at least the pairs of mating surfaces 12,22 marked with open triangles and capital letters A, B, C and D; 14,24; 14.24; 15,25 und 17, 27. 15,25 and 17, 27th

Die beiden oberen Paßflächenpaare 12, 22 und 14, 24 wirken einem Höhenversatz der beiden gekuppelten Teile, also Feder 32 einerseits und Nut 34 aus Lippen 30 und 31 andererseits entgegen. The two upper Paßflächenpaare 12, 22 and 14, 24 counteract a height offset of the two coupled parts, ie, the spring 32 on the one hand, and groove 34 of lips 30 and 31 on the other. Dadurch wird verhindert, daß dasPaneel 2 gegenüber dem Paneel 1 verkanten kann, insbesondere während des Zusammenfügens. This prevents that dasPaneel 2 can tilt with respect to the panel 1, particularly during assembly.

Beide Paare von Oberflächen 12, 22 und 14, 24 weisen gegenüberliegend angeordnete Paare von Oberflächen 15,25 und 17,27 als Widerlager auf. Both pairs of surfaces 12, 22 and 14, 24 have oppositely arranged pairs of surfaces 15,25 and 17,27 on as an abutment. Durch diesen Paßsitz wird die Feder 32 sowohl am vorderen, der Endfläche 8 zugewandten Ende, als auch am hinteren, der Kante 4 zugewandten Ende in ihrer Position festgelegt. Due to this interference fit, the spring 32 both at the front, the end face 8 facing the end, as well as at the rear edge of the fixed end facing 4 in position. Dabei sind die Oberflächenpaare 14,24 und 15, 25 beabstandet zu den Oberflächenpaaren 12,22 und 17,27 angeordnet, wobei der Abstand möglichst groß gewählt ist. Here, the surface pairs 14,24 and 15, 25 spaced apart from the surface pairs 12,22 and 17,27, wherein the distance is chosen as large as possible. Dadurch wird eine hohe Stabilität und insbesondere Biegesteifigkeit gegenüber einer durch eine senkrecht auf die Oberflächen 5 und 9 der gekoppelten Paneelen 1 und 2 wirkenden Belastung erreicht. This ensures a high stability and in particular bending rigidity against a force acting by a perpendicular to the surfaces 5 and 9 of coupled panels 1 and 2, load is achieved.

Darüber hinaus können die zuvor beschriebenen Wirkungen auch dadurch verstärkt und verbessert werden, daß auch die Oberflächenpaare 13,23 und 16,26 paßgenau aneinander anliegen und somit die Biegesteifigkeit verbessern. Moreover, the effects described above can also be enhanced and improved, that the surface pairs 13,23 and 16,26 abut each other in register, and thus improve the bending stiffness.

Bisher wurde das Zusammenwirken der Oberflächen in Bezug auf die Biegesteifigkeit beschrieben. So far, the cooperation of the surfaces has been described in terms of bending stiffness. Die Oberflächen 17 und 27 bewirken, daß die Feder 32 in der von den Lippen 30 und 31 gebildeten Nut 34 festgehalten wird. The surfaces 17 and 27 cause the spring 32 is held in the plane formed by the lips 30 and 31 groove 34th Denn durch die Oberflächen 26 und 27 wird ein nach unten vorstehendes Verriegelungselement 33 der Feder 32 gebildet, die in die von den Oberflächen 16 und 17 in der Nut 34 an der unteren Lippe 31 ausgebildete Vertiefung 35 eingreift. This is because the surfaces 26 and 27 is a formed by protruding below the locking element 33 of the spring 32, which engages in the formed of the surfaces 16 and 17 in the groove 34 on the lower lip 31 recess 35th Wie mit dem Dreieck B gekennzeichnet ist, sind die Oberflächen 17 und 27 so geneigt, daß ein Herausrutschen der Feder 32 aus der Nut 34 wirkungsvoll verhindert wird. As B is marked with the triangle, the surfaces 17 and 27 are inclined so that slipping of the spring 32 is effectively prevented from the groove 34th

Darüber hinaus sind die Nut 34 und die Feder 32 so genau aufeinander ausgerichtet, daß bei paßgenauem Sitz der Feder 32 in der Nut 34 die Oberflächen 11 und 21 der Kanten 3 und 4 der Paneelen 1 und 2 eng aneinander anliegen. In addition, the groove 34 and the spring 32 are oriented so precisely to one another that the surfaces abut at paßgenauem seat of the spring 32 in the groove 34 11 and 21 of edges 3 and 4 of panels 1 and 2 close together. Somit liegen die Oberflächen 9 und 5 ohne Spalt aneinander an und bilden eine durchgängige Oberfläche. Thus, the surfaces 9 and 5 rest against one another without a gap and form a continuous surface.

Für ein Zusammenfügen werden beide Paneelen 1 und 2 horizontal, also im wesentlichen parallel zu den Unterseiten 6 und 10 aufeinander zu bewegt worden. For joining together the two panels 1 and 2 are horizontal, have been so moved substantially parallel to the bottoms 6 and 10 to each other. Durch einen entsprechend ausgeübten mechanischen Druck drückt die Feder 32 die untere Lippe 31 nach unten, bis die Feder 32 soweit in die Nut 34 eingeschoben worden ist, bis die untere Lippe 31 mit der Feder 32 verrastet. By an appropriately applied mechanical pressure, the spring 32 presses lower lip 31 downward until spring 32 has been pushed into the groove 34 to the lower lip 31 engages with the spring 32nd Den verrasteten Zustand zeigt Fig. 3. Dabei ist hervorzuheben, daß nur die vertikal zu den Oberseiten 5 und 9 verlaufenden Oberflächen 11 und 21 aneinander anliegen und somit die relative Position der beiden Paneelen 1 und 2 definieren. The locked state is shown in FIG. 3. It should be emphasized that only the vertical to the top sides 5 and 9 extending surfaces 11 and 21 abut one another and thus define the relative position of the two panels 1 and 2. Die weiteren vertikalen Oberflächenpaare 7 und 8 sowie 19 und 29 haben dagegen keine direkten mechanischen Kontakt miteinander. The further vertical surface pairs 7 and 8 as well as 19 and 29, however, have no direct mechanical contact with each other.

Fig. 3 zeigt weiterhin, daß die beiden Profile im verriegelten Zustand im Bereich der Oberflächen 11 und 21 sowie 7 und 8 Hohlräume bilden. Fig. 3 further shows that the two profiles form 11 and 21 and 7 and 8 cavities in the locked state in the area of ​​the surfaces. Dieses dient einer Aufnahme von ggf. vorhandenen Verunreinigungen, damit die Passung zwischen den Paßflächen nicht beeinträchtigt wird. This is a recording from possibly present impurities, so the fit between the fitting surfaces is not impeded. Die Hohlräume können auch Leim aufnehmen, sofern dieses für eine Fixierung der eingenommenen Position erwünscht ist. The cavities can also accommodate glue, if this is desired for fixing the assumed position. Es wird jedoch hervorgehoben, daß für das mechanische Verriegeln kein Leim erforderlich ist. However, it is emphasized that no glue is required for the mechanical interlocking.

Sowohl das Paneel 1 als auch das Paneel 2 können umseitig entweder mit dem in Fig. 1 dargestellten Profil oder mit dem in Fig. 2 dargestellten Profil versehen sein, so daß eine Mehrzahl von Paneelen 1 und 2 zu einer flächigen Anordnung miteinander verbunden werden können. Both the panel 1 and the panel 2 may be provided with either overleaf in Fig. Profile shown 1 or with that shown in Fig. 2 profile so that a plurality of panels 1 and 2 can be joined together to form a flat assembly. Dazu weisen die Paneelen jeweils eine Längs- und eine Querseite ein Profil gemäß Fig. 1 und an den anderen Seiten gemäß Fig. 2 auf. For this purpose, the panels each having a longitudinal and a transverse side of a profile according to Fig. 1 and on the other sides in FIG. 2.

Das in den Fig. 1 bis 3 dargestellte Ausführungsbeispiel zeigt jeweils einstückige Ausführungen der Nut 34 in dem Paneel 1 einerseits und der Feder 32 in bzw. an dem Paneel 2. Selbstverständlich ist es auch möglich, die Feder 32 und/oder die untere Lippe 31 mehrstückig auszuführen, also bspw. Kunststoffprofile zu verwenden, die in Kombination mit den Holzwerkstoffen des Paneels eingesetzt werden. The embodiment illustrated in FIGS. 1 to 3 show respectively one-piece embodiments of groove 34 in panel 1 on the one hand and the spring 32 in or on the panel 2. It is of course also possible for the spring 32 and / or the lower lip 31 perform several pieces, so to use eg. plastic profiles, which are used in combination with the wood materials of the panel. Die Erfindung ist daher nicht auf einer einstükkige Ausführung beschränkt. The invention is therefore not limited to a einstükkige execution.
