Description

  • Die Erfindung betrifft eine Einrichtung bestehend aus zwei miteinander verbindbaren Bauplatten mit einem Einsatz zum Verriegeln der miteinander verbundenen Bauplatten, insbesondere Bodenpaneelen, mit einem Kern aus Holzwerkstoff, wobei die Bauplatten an mindestens einer Kante mit einer Nut und an der gegenüberliegenden Kante mit einer zu der Nut korrespondieren Feder versehen sind, wobei die zwei Platten durch eine horizontale Fügebewegung miteinander verbindbar und dabei durch die Feder-Nut-Verbindung in einer vertikalen Richtung verriegelbar sind und wobei die Feder und die Nut mit mindestens einer Ausnehmung versehen sind, wobei die Ausnehmungen in der Feder und in der Nut in vertikaler Richtung ausgerichtet sind, wobei bei miteinander verbundenen Platten sich die Ausnehmungen im Wesentlichen gegenüber liegen, und der Einsatz in die Ausnehmungen eingreift, so dass die Platten in die horizontale Richtung verriegelbar sind.The invention relates to a device consisting of two interconnected construction panels with an insert for locking the interconnected building panels, in particular floor panels, with a core of wood material, wherein the building panels at least one edge with a groove and at the opposite edge with a groove to the Corresponding spring are provided, wherein the two plates are connected to each other by a horizontal joining movement and thereby locked by the spring-groove connection in a vertical direction and wherein the spring and the groove are provided with at least one recess, wherein the recesses in the spring and in the groove are aligned in the vertical direction, wherein in interconnected plates, the recesses are substantially opposite, and the insert engages in the recesses, so that the plates are lockable in the horizontal direction.
  • Eine solche Einrichtung ist beispielsweise aus der DE-U-200 21 779 bekannt. Zunächst wird die Feder der einen Platte in die Nut der anderen Platte eingeführt und dann wird der die Verriegelung bewirkende Einsatz stirnseitig in die sich gegenüberliegenden Ausnehmungen von Feder und Nut, die einen Kanal bilden, eingeschoben.Such a device is for example from the DE-U-200 21 779 known. First, the spring of a plate is inserted into the groove of the other plate and then the insert causing the locking is inserted end face into the opposite recesses of spring and groove, which form a channel.
  • Die Haltbarkeit der Verbindung ist hoch, das Verlegen jedoch recht mühsam und zeitaufwändig. Wenn der Einsatz nicht vollständig in den Kanal eingeschoben wird und heraussteht, lassen sich weitere Paneele an der Stirnseite nicht mehr exakt anlegen und es entsteht an der Oberfläche des verlegten Bodens eine Fuge, die ein unerwünschtes Erscheinungsbild ergibt. Außerdem besteht die Gefahr, dass Feuchtigkeit in die Fuge eindringt und der Kern der Platten aufquillt.The durability of the connection is high, laying but quite tedious and time consuming. If the insert is not pushed completely into the channel and protrudes, further panels on the front side can no longer be created exactly and a joint results on the surface of the laid floor, which results in an undesired appearance. In addition, there is a risk that moisture penetrates into the joint and the core of the plates swells.
  • Die nachveröffentlichte DE-A-102 30 819 , die im Wesentlichen der ebenfalls nachveröffentlichten EP-A-1 367 194 entspricht, offenbart ebenfalls eine Einrichtung, bei der zwei Fußbodenplatten aus einem Holzwerkstoff über einen stirnseitig einschiebbaren Einsatz in horizontaler Richtung miteinander verriegelt werden können. Der Einsatz ist im Querschnitt x-förmig ausgebildet. Beim Einschieben des Verriegelungselementes in die sich gegenüberliegenden Nuten werden die Schenkel des Einsatzes zusammengedrückt und halten zusätzlich die Stoßfuge der beiden Paneele eng beieinander und damit dicht gegenüber Schmutz und Feuchtigkeit.The post-published DE-A-102 30 819 , which are essentially also the post-published EP-A-1 367 194 corresponds, also discloses a device in which two floor panels made of a wood material can be locked together via a front insertable insert in the horizontal direction. The insert is formed in cross-section x-shaped. When inserting the locking element into the opposing grooves, the legs of the insert are compressed and additionally hold the butt joint of the two panels close together and thus tight against dirt and moisture.
  • Die nachveröffentlichte DE-A-102 43 196 offenbart Paneele, die über eine Verbindungsklammer miteinander verbunden werden. Die Verbindungsklammer ist mit in einer horizontalen Ebene wirkenden Widerhaken versehen, die in entsprechende Hinterschnitte in den Paneelen eingreifen.The post-published DE-A-102 43 196 discloses panels which are interconnected via a connection clip. The connecting bracket is provided with barbs acting in a horizontal plane which engage corresponding undercuts in the panels.
  • Aus der US-A-5,574,979 sind Isolierplatten bekannt, die über eine Feder-Nut-Verbindung in vertikaler Richtung zueinander verriegelt werden können. Die Verriegelung in horizontaler Richtung erfolgt über einen an einem Aufsatz vorgesehenen Vorsprung, der in eine in einem Einsatz vorgesehene Vertiefung einrastet. Der Aufsatz wird auf die Unterlippe des einen Paneels aufgesetzt und der Einsatz in das andere Paneel eingebracht. Diese Einsätze sind aus einem anderen Material als die Paneele. Die Verriegelung kann auch über eine Klammer erfolgen, die in sich gegenüberliegende Nuten des Aufsatzes bzw. des Einsatzes eingreift.From the US-A-5,574,979 Isolation plates are known which can be locked to each other via a tongue and groove connection in the vertical direction. The locking in the horizontal direction via a protrusion provided on a projection which engages in a recess provided in an insert. The attachment is placed on the lower lip of one panel and introduced the insert in the other panel. These inserts are made of a different material than the panels. The locking can also be done via a clip which engages in opposing grooves of the essay or the insert.
  • Aus der WO-A-03/016654 sind Bodenpaneele bekannt, die durch eine vertikale Fügebewegung miteinander verbunden und dabei in horizontaler Richtung zueinander verriegelt werden können. Die Verriegelung in vertikaler Richtung erfolgt über ein von der Stirnseite in sich gegenüberliegende Nuten, die eine gemeinsame Aussparung bilden, einschiebbares Verriegelungselement.From the WO-A-03/016654 Floor panels are known, which can be interconnected by a vertical joining movement and thereby locked in the horizontal direction to each other. The locking in the vertical direction takes place via a the end face in opposing grooves which form a common recess, einschiebbares locking element.
  • Von dieser Problemstellung ausgehend, soll die eingangs erläuterte Einrichtung so verbessert werden, dass ihre Handhabung und das Verlegen der Platten einfacher wird.Starting from this problem, the above-described device should be improved so that their handling and laying the plates is easier.
  • Zur Problemlösung zeichnet sich eine gattungsgemäße Einrichtung dadurch aus, dass der Einsatz federnde Lippen aufweist, die zueinander x-förmig angeordnet sind und der Einsatz so in die Ausnehmung der einen Platte einsetzbar ist, dass er durch die horizontale Fügebewegung der Platten in die gegenüberliegende Ausnehmung der anderen Platte verrastbar ist.To solve the problem, a generic device is characterized in that the insert has resilient lips which are arranged in an X-shape and the insert is inserted into the recess of a plate so that it by the horizontal joining movement of the plates in the opposite recess other plate is latched.
  • Der mit x-förmig angeordneten, federnden Lippen versehene Einsatz bietet den Vorteil, dass er zunächst in eine der Ausnehmungen eingesetzt werden kann und die Platten dann ineinander geschnappt werden können, weil die federnden Lippen ausweichen können bzw. zusammengedrückt werden und zurückfedern, wenn die korrespondiere Ausnehmung an der Feder bzw. der Nut zur Überdeckung gelangt. Wie ein Widerhaken greifen die federnden Lippen in die Ausnehmungen ein und verriegeln die Platten in horizontaler Richtung.The insert provided with x-shaped, resilient lips offers the advantage that it can first be inserted into one of the recesses and the plates can then be snapped into one another, because the resilient lips can dodge or be compressed and spring back when the corresponding Recess on the spring or the groove passes to cover. Like a barb, the resilient lips engage in the recesses and lock the plates in the horizontal direction.
  • Der Einsatz kann werkseitig in eine der Ausnehmungen eingesetzt und darin befestigt werden. Die Verbindung der Platten ist dann genauso einfach möglich, wie bei den so genannten Klick- oder Schnappprofilen, bei denen die Verriegelungsmittel einteilig mit der Feder bzw. der Nut ausgebildet sind.The insert can be factory set in one of the recesses and secured therein. The connection of the plates is just as easily possible, as in the so-called click or snap profiles, in which the locking means are integrally formed with the spring or the groove.
  • Der Einsatz ist vorzugsweise als Kunststoff-Spritzgussteil ausgebildet, so dass eine kostengünstige und einfache Herstellung möglich ist. Es kann auch extrudiert werden. Durch eine entsprechende Materialauswahl wird sichergestellt, dass Kräfte, wie sie auf die Platten bei normaler Nutzung einwirken, nicht zu einer Deformation der Federlippe und damit zum Lösen der Verbindung führen.The insert is preferably designed as a plastic injection-molded part, so that a cost-effective and simple production is possible. It can also be extruded. An appropriate selection of materials ensures that forces acting on the plates during normal use do not lead to deformation of the spring lip and thus to the release of the connection.

  • Figur 1 zeigt zwei miteinander verbundene Bodenpaneele 1, 2, die über die in der Nut 4 des einen Paneels 2 sitzende Feder 3 des anderen Paneels 1 in vertikaler Richtung V miteinander verriegelt sind. In der Oberlippe 8 der Nut 4 ist eine Ausnehmung 5 vorgesehen, die zu einer in der Feder 3 vorgesehenen Ausnehmung 6 korrespondiert. Die Verriegelung in horizontaler Richtung erfolgt durch den im Querschnitt X-förmigen Einsatz 7 mit 4 federnden Lippen 7I, 7 II, 7 III, 7 IV. Der Einsatz 7 ist werkseitig in die Ausnehmung 6 oder die Ausnehmung 5 eingesetzt und darin vorzugsweise verklebt. Werden die Paneele 1, 2 in horizontaler Richtung H aufeinander zugeschoben, federn die Lippen 7 I, 7 II, oder 7 III, 7 IV aufeinander zu, biegen dann seitlich aus und wenn die entsprechende Ausnehmung in der Oberlippe 8 oder der Feder 3 zur Überdeckung mit den federnden Lippen 7 I, 7 II, 7 III, 7 IV kommt, federn diese wieder zurück. FIG. 1 shows two interconnected floor panels 1, 2, which are locked together via the seated in the groove 4 of a panel 2 spring 3 of the other panel 1 in the vertical direction V. In the upper lip 8 of the groove 4, a recess 5 is provided, which corresponds to a recess 3 provided in the spring 6. The locking in the horizontal direction is effected by the cross-sectionally X-shaped insert 7 with 4 resilient lips 7 I , 7 II , 7 III , 7 IV . The insert 7 is factory inserted into the recess 6 or the recess 5 and preferably glued therein. If the panels 1, 2 are pushed towards each other in the horizontal direction H, the lips 7 I , 7 II , or 7 III , 7 IV spring towards each other, then bend laterally and if the corresponding recess in the upper lip 8 or the spring 3 overlaps comes with the resilient lips 7 I , 7 II , 7 III , 7 IV , they spring back again.
  • Bei dem in Figur 2 dargestellten Beispiel sind in die Oberlippe 8 und die Feder 3 Ausnehmungen 5, 6 eingefräst, die bei miteinander verbundenen Paneelen 1, 2 einen im Querschnitt dreieckigen Kanal ausbilden. Der Einsatz 7 ist im Querschnitt V-förmig mit zwei federnden Lippen 7 I, 7 II ausgebildet. Der Einsatz 7 wird werkseitig in die Ausnehmung 6 in der Feder 3 eingesetzt und hierin verklebt. Werden die Paneele 1, 2 horizontal ineinander geschoben, biegen die federnden Lippen 7 I, 7 II so weit aus, bis sie in die Nut 5 der Oberlippe 8 eintauchen können.At the in FIG. 2 illustrated example, in the upper lip 8 and the spring 3 recesses 5, 6 are milled, which form a cross-sectionally triangular channel in interconnected panels 1, 2. The insert 7 is formed in cross-section V-shaped with two resilient lips 7 I , 7 II . The insert 7 is factory inserted into the recess 6 in the spring 3 and glued herein. Be the panels 1, 2 pushed horizontally, bend the resilient lips 7 I , 7 II so far out until they can dip into the groove 5 of the upper lip 8.
  • Bei dem in Figur 5 dargestellten Beispiel sind die Paneele 1a, 2a mit vertikaler Nut 4a und Feder 3a versehen. Eine solche Profilausgestaltung wird vielfach als Legeprofil bezeichnet, weil die Paneele 1a, 2a nicht durch horizontales Verschieben, sondern durch vertikales Einlegen miteinander verbunden werden. Bei dieser Profilart werden die Paneele 1a, 2a über die Feder-Nut-Verbindung in horizontaler Richtung H verriegelt. In der Feder 3a ist an der Stirnseite über die volle Länge eine im Querschnitt rechteckige Nut eingefräst. In der Stirnwand der Nut 4a ist gegenüberliegend hierzu eine Ausnehmung 5 über die volle Länge des Paneels 1a eingefräst. Der Einsatz 7 ist mit einem im Querschnitt rechteckigen Kern 7a versehen, der in die Nut in der Feder 3 werkseitig eingesetzt ist. An den Kern schließt sich eine V-förmige Lippe an, die in einer federnden Lippe 7I endet. Werden die beiden Paneele 1 a, 2a ineinander gelegt, wird die federnde Lippe 1a an den Kern 7a des Einsatzes 7 angelegt und federt in horizontaler Richtung H zurück, wenn die Feder 3a so weit in die Nut 4a eingetaucht ist, dass die Ausnehmung 5 zur Überdeckung mit dem Satz 7 gelangt. In vertikaler Richtung V sind die Paneele 1a, 2a dann verriegelt.At the in FIG. 5 As shown, the panels 1a, 2a are provided with a vertical groove 4a and a spring 3a. Such a profile design is often referred to as a laying profile, because the panels 1a, 2a are not connected to each other by horizontal displacement, but by vertical insertion. In this type of profile, the panels 1a, 2a are locked in the horizontal direction H via the spring-groove connection. In the spring 3a, a rectangular cross-section groove is milled on the front side over the full length. In the end wall of the groove 4a, a recess 5 is milled over the full length of the panel 1a opposite thereto. The insert 7 is provided with a rectangular cross-section core 7a, which is inserted into the groove in the spring 3 factory. The core is followed by a V-shaped lip, which ends in a resilient lip 7 I. If the two panels 1 a, 2 a put together, the resilient lip 1 a is applied to the core 7 a of the insert 7 and springs back in the horizontal direction H, when the spring 3 a is so far immersed in the groove 4 a, that the recess 5 for Cover with the sentence 7 arrives. In the vertical direction V, the panels 1a, 2a are then locked.
  • Durch die L-förmige Ausbildung der Kanten der Paneele 1a, 2a kann an dem unteren Schenkel 10a des Paneels 1a eine weitere im Querschnitt rechteckige Nut eingefräst sein, in die ein zweiter Einsatz 7 eingelegt werden kann. Durch eine entsprechende Ausnehmung 9 in der Stirnseite des vertikalen Schenkels 11a des Paneels 2a kann eine weitere Verriegelungsmöglichkeit für die federnde Lippe 7a des zweiten Einsatzes 7 geschaffen werden, wodurch die notwendigen Auszugskräfte in vertikaler Richtung V in der Verbindung erhöht werden.Due to the L-shaped design of the edges of the panels 1a, 2a can be milled on the lower leg 10a of the panel 1a, a further rectangular in cross-section groove into which a second insert 7 can be inserted. By a corresponding recess 9 in the end face of the vertical leg 11a of the panel 2a, a further possibility for locking the resilient lip 7a of the second insert 7 can be created, whereby the necessary extraction forces in the vertical direction V in the connection can be increased.
