Description

    Technical area
  • The invention relates to a support frame for plates, to a bottom plate comprising a plate and this support frame, and to a laying system comprising plates and support frame and is particularly suitable for stoneware tiles and natural stone tiles and wood panels.
  • State of the art
  • Floor tiles are, as far as it is stone or ceramic tiles, usually by means of a suitable adhesive on the appropriately prepared pad, z. B. on a smooth screed, laid, the joint width is usually determined by inserting joints crosses and the joints must be filled later. The laying is comparatively complicated both in terms of the tools required and in terms of the necessary materials and also requires a relatively high level of craftsmanship from the publisher. In addition, a high amount of time is required until the coating is walkable. Another disadvantage is the fact that a laid after this procedure plate coating not readily, d. H. can not be removed without destroying the plates.
  • In the case of wood panels, for example in parquet or laminate panels, as used for floor coverings, it is known to provide a groove on one of the intersecting panel sides and a spring on the other two panel sides. When laying the plates each plate with corresponding grooves and springs are pushed together and glued together. Again, the plate covering can be a later Time can not be removed without destroying the plates.
  • From the DE 199 62 812 or DE 200 09 717 U1 Stone tiles are known with a support frame and a seal.
  • According to the DE 199 62 812 A1 It is known to provide the edges of floor and wall panels to be laid in each case with an edge profile, which may be glued to the plates. The edge profile are formed so that a first leg for the support of the plate and a second leg for abutment against the peripheral edge surface of the plate is present. In addition, a projection is still provided on the side facing away from the plate on the plate edge extending leg, which is responsible for a predetermined minimum width of the joint together with the projection of the adjacent plate. In the joint, which is formed by two mirror-symmetrically arranged edge profiles, a cover profile is used. This cover profile is secured by a tooth against slipping out. On the plate, a non-slip damping layer may be provided, however, the edge region of the underside of the plate is released because there are circumferentially applied the edge profiles. The pre-assembled with the edge profiles plates are designed on a bottom surface so that the projections abut each other.
  • According to the DE 200 09 717 U1 It is known to provide a substantially T-shaped support profile between two adjacent plates, which has two lateral support webs for supporting a respective plate and a central holding portion having a receiving groove for a seal. The holding portion extends a distance along the plate edge and the seal is so formed so that it provides a plurality of successive sealing surfaces to the top plate. Between the plate and the lateral support web, a sealing tape is provided which prevents any water which has passed through the seal from escaping to the underside of the plate. In addition, may be provided in the region of the support web, a guide web for the formation of gutters.
  • In the EP 0 256 189 A1 are floorboards comprising a frame with shaped side edges with engaging elements of opposite sex disclosed. This document contains the features of the preamble of claims 1 and 7. The frame has an upper and a lower side. The upper side contains flooring material. The engaging elements are designed and arranged to connect adjacent side edges of opposite sex. The frame is provided with a plurality of openings extending between the upper and lower sides. The floor covering material is adhesively secured through the openings with a cushioning foam pad located on the lower side. There are extensions on all four sides of the frame. The floor covering material is fastened to the upper side of the frame by latching elements located on the upper side of the extensions. The engaging elements of opposite sex, which are located on the lower side of the extensions, serve to connect adjacent floor panels. They work together in a vertical direction.
  • The invention has for its object to provide a laying system in which the laying of the plates relatively easily, d. H. can also be performed by untrained persons. The installation system should be suitable in particular for natural stone slabs such as granite, marble, etc. but also for wood, ceramic or other materials produced panels. It should also ensure that the pad can be removed if necessary without damaging the individual plates.
  • The invention consists of a support frame or from a base plate or from a laying system, with the features of claim 7 or 6 or 1.
  • Presentation of the invention
  • With the laying system according to the invention, which includes plates and support frame, the aforementioned disadvantages can be avoided. Each plate is at least partially with its underside on one of the support profiles having bearing areas bearing frame, wherein the support frame has a bearing on the support surface to the top of the plate projecting approach, which extends at least partially along the edge of the plate towards the top of the plate , The support frame can be connected to each other. The approach is a part of the support frame and is provided only on two adjacent support profiles, whereas the other two support profiles have a support area without approach. The first support profiles have at least one latching extension beyond the plate in the lateral direction, wherein the two another, second support profiles have at least one lying below the plate in the lateral direction Rastforsatz and cooperates in each case one support profile with another support profile in the lateral direction.
  • In the case of square or rectangular plates of the support frame has a total of four support profiles, with the special design of the compound, a shift parallel rows of installed panels is possible. This makes it possible to relocate the plates. In that case, four corners do not collide in a corner of a panel, but two corners hit a side edge of the adjacent row of panels.
  • By the individual tiles mutually sealing joint rubber a precise, consistent joint image is achieved, which also convinces by its tightness against water.
  • Thanks to the invention expansion joints are no longer necessary even when laying larger areas, as there is no solid contact to the ground by the floating installation. The risk of cracking in the floor covering or the individual plate, as it is given when glued to the screed plates, therefore, does not exist. In addition, no glue is needed for the installation.
  • Particular advantages arise in the laying of high-quality panels, such as granite slabs or similar panels, since the additional cost of the installation system from the unit price considered less significant and far more important advantage mistakes in laying are avoided even with poorly trained laying staff. In addition, the installation costs are considerably reduced.
  • Due to the floating installation it is possible to lay the granite floor quickly and cost-effectively on the existing wooden structures in old building renovation with wooden floorboards without much preliminary work. Also for Holzbaufertighäuser it is possible with the help of the invention to move granite and natural stone.
  • The very common problem of poor footfall sound insulation in the existing screeds, which often cause sound bridges as a result of improper installation occurs when using the installation system according to the invention in conjunction with a footfall sound insulation no longer on and it is an optimal insulation guaranteed. For this purpose, the support frame are provided on its underside with a footfall sound insulation.
  • In addition to the laying system, the subject of the application is a base plate comprising a plate and a support frame for use in a laying system. Another object is a support frame for a plate. Advantageous developments are described in the respective subclaims.

    embodiments
  • In the illustrated embodiments, it is assumed that a floor covering, which consists of a plurality of each other lined stone slabs, z. B. granite plates, is formed, the interposition of my distance joint on a base, z. B. a raw screed or a floor board floating.
  • FIG. 1 shows, in a diagrammatic illustration, a quadrangular frame 1 for receiving a plate (not shown in this figure), e.g. B. a granite plate. The frame 1 is made of a plastic and is prefabricated; it may consist of a one-piece molded part or of individual elements which are composed of a bar profile. As a material, a recycled plastic can be used.
  • Of the four legs 1a to 1d of the frame 1, the two have in each case a leg 1c, 1d which adjoins one another, a plug-in profile 3 which is shown in cross-section in FIG. The two other legs 1a, 1b have a male profile 4 as shown in Fig. 5 in cross section. All four legs 1a to 1d have a strip-shaped support 5, on which in the installed state a usable in the frame plate 2 rests.
  • In Fig. 2a, the support of such a plate 2 is shown on the strip-shaped support 5 with the male profile 4. The width of the support 5 is expediently 20 mm at a plate width of 305 mm.
  • The predetermined by the strength (height) of the support 5 of the frame 1 distance from the laying mat (floor screed) to the patch plate 2 can be advantageously used to insert a footfall sound insulation 12. The height of the impact sound insulation 12 is to be dimensioned so that it corresponds to the said distance from the laying pad to plate only in the loaded state. The impact sound insulation 12 is advantageously glued to the underside of the plate. Thus, the formation of reverberation, as it is known from the parquet area as a problem reliably avoided.
  • In Fig. 2b, the installation state of two plates is shown, but the right of the illustrated plates 2 is offset for illustrative purposes to the rear. The plate 2 lies with its underside in the edge region on the strip-shaped support 5 and is glued thereto.
  • Notwithstanding Fig. 2a, the footfall sound insulation 12 extends not only to the vicinity of the support 5, but also under this, so that even in the area of the support 5 takes place insulation. This is shown with broken lines, wherein the area below the support 5 is designated by the reference numeral 13.
  • If minor unevenness or roughness in the surface of the support pad must be compensated, z. As in a very rough screed, it may be advantageous to stick under the frame 1 in addition to a non-illustrated resilient foam pad. This base can be glued on a point or surface.
  • As is apparent from the illustration in Fig. 4, the male profile 3 of the legs 1c and 1d a vertically upwardly directed projection 6, abut the plates 2 on the two sides in the installed state. The projection 6 is provided with a groove 7, in which a shown in Fig. 6 in cross-section rubber seal 8 is inserted. If required, the seal 8 can be glued in the groove area with the neck 6 of the leg, so that a working out is reliably avoided. In addition, it is provided, the seal 8 adapted in one of the color scheme of the plates Color produce. It is therefore not necessary that the frame is color matched to the plates.
  • The rubber seal 8 is mushroom-shaped, wherein the stem 8a of the seal 8 is formed so that it fits into the groove 7 of the projection 6. The hat 8b is preferably trapezoidal and designed in height so that its upper edge in the installed state terminates approximately with the upper edge of a plate inserted into the frame 2, as shown in Fig. 2b.
  • The width of the rubber seal 8 is dimensioned larger at least towards the upper end than the width of the projection 6, whereby in the installed state of the plates, the rubber seal is pressed together and a gap seal is achieved. At the corners, ie at the point of intersection of the plates, the rubber seal 8 is mitred at an angle of 90 ° (FIG. 3), so that a seal is also achieved at the point of intersection.
  • The plug-in profile 3 (FIG. 4) contains an extension 9, which corresponds to a mating detent groove 11 in the plug-in profile 4 (FIG. 5). The two plug-in profiles 3 and 4 thus form a snap-in lock with which several frames can easily be put together and later easily separated again. So that a problem-free mating of the parts is achieved without cutting on site, the extensions 9 are reset with the locking cam 10 with respect to the outer edge of the frame by a degree X at each frame.
  • Each plate 2 to be laid is provided with a frame as shown in FIG. Preferably, the frames are glued to the underside of the plates so that the plate and frame form a unit. The gluing also has the advantage that the plates firmly fixed in the plate composite are and a "working out" of the plates is avoided even with long-term committing the finished covering.
  • For laying the plates with the frame glued thereto on the prepared surface to which the plate covering is to be applied (here floor screed) and placed together so that in each case the legs come to rest with the locking grooves 11 to the legs with the locking cam 10. By joining (clicking in) the parts, a mechanical connection is made which can be loosened later if necessary. When joining is also, as already mentioned, the rubber seal 8 pressed together so far that a certain bias is generated. The preload ensures a sufficient seal against the ingress of dirt and moisture. In addition, tolerances can be compensated when laying the plates.
  • In Fig. 7, a further latching connection is shown in which the legs 1c superior locking cam 10 provides on its upper side and on its underside undercuts, which engage in a likewise two undercuts having groove 11 on the receiving leg 1a. Upon penetration of the locking cam in the locking groove, this is spread open and snaps together after the complete insertion and the system of the side edge of the leg 1a at the side edge and the neck 6 of the leg 1c again. The material elasticity is selected so that this is possible without destruction.
  • In Fig. 8, the locking connection in the region of a projection 14 and a groove 15 itself formed undercuts, so that only one guide takes place here. The mechanical securing takes place via a locking cam 10 on the underside of the projection 14 and a latching recess 11 In the surface of the lower side wall of the groove 11. In this case, an insertion 16 may be provided for ease of assembly, which is indicated by dashed lines.
  • 4, 5, 7 and 8 is particularly clear that the female male profile 4, the male male profile 3 on the underside of a piece, namely by the width of the neck 6, engages under.
  • In Fig. 9, another embodiment of the invention is shown. A support frame 21 consists here in addition to the marginal edge profiles 21a, b, c, d of stiffening ribs 22, 23, of which a first group 22 is parallel to the sides and a second group 23 in the diagonal direction. The ribs 22, 23 intersect, so that crossing points 24 arise. These crossing points can be of different sizes.
  • At the edge profiles 21a to d upper and lower projections 25, 26 are formed, which each represent one half of a latching connection, namely the upper half and the lower half. This will be explained in more detail below. Each rib of the edge profiles 21a-d and 22, 23 limited field support area 27 has openings, indicated by the puncture, whose function will be explained later.
  • FIG. 10 shows a cross section through the support frame according to FIG. 9, wherein the side profiles 21b, 21d can be seen in the edge region. In addition, the course of the web 28 can be seen. The web 28 extends from the profiles 21a to d over almost the entire length or width of the support frame 21, but only on two adjacent sides. This can be seen in FIG. 9 by means of the web 28 arranged on the profile 21a and the web 29 arranged on the adjacent profile 21b.
  • In Fig. 10, the openings 30 and the inner ribs 22 are also shown. To recognize are further an upper and lower part 25, 26 of a locking connection.
  • In Fig. 11, the left side is shown as section AA of Fig. 9, the right side of Fig. 11 corresponds to a neighboring plate according to the invention. Shown is initially the frame profile 21 with the edge profile 21a, on which a plate 2 rests and is thereby determined by acting as a stop web 28 in position.
  • The support frame 21 is provided with openings 30, which will be explained later.
  • On the outside of the support frame 21, an upper projection 25 is shown, which has a downwardly directed latching teeth 31. The transition region protrusion 25 in the frame profile 21a is elastically resilient, so that the projection 25 has a certain flexibility.
  • In the right part of FIG. 11, a bottom plate adjacent thereto is provided, the edge structure of which corresponds to the section BB of FIG. 9. The plate 2 'rests on the edge profile 21 c, which has a lower projection 26 with a latching toothing 32. The plate 2 'thereby engages over the lower projection 26, so that when joining the bottom plates 21, 21', the plate 2 'comes to rest above the upper projection 25 of the edge profile 21a. On the left side of Fig. 11, this installation situation for the plate 2 'is shown, in which case the lower projection 26 of the support profile 21c is below the upper projection 25 of the frame profile 21a. The upper projection 25 is thus enclosed on both sides. So that the upper latching projection 25 can nevertheless slide over the latching teeth, is a Distance to the plate 2 'provided so that the top of the locking projection 25 is lower than the bottom of the plate 2' and the bearing surface of the plate. 2
  • The plates 2, 2 'are held by the web 28 at a predetermined minimum distance from each other, wherein a mounted on the web 28 seal 33 seal the plates from the top. For this purpose, the seal 33 is widened wedge-shaped upward and has in the region of the shaft on to the plate 2 and 2 'extending sealing lip 34, 34' on. When assembling the plates, the wedge-shaped end of the seal 33 comes with the inclined surfaces for contact with correspondingly formed inclined surfaces on the plates 2, 2 'and thereby causes a seal. However, if moisture, such as an applied cleaning fluid, passes through these sealing surfaces, the sealing lips 34, 34 'prevent further leakage downwards.
  • The support frame is also provided on its underside with a receiving groove 35 in which an insulating profile 36 is inserted. The insulating profile 36 projects beyond the lower edge of the frame profile 21a and can have lateral compensation spaces 37, 37 'which allow deformation of the insulating profile 36 under load. In addition to the support profiles 21a and the stiffening ribs 22, 23 are provided with an embedded in a groove insulation profile, so that there is a good impact sound insulation.
  • FIG. 12 also shows a section along the line AA, but here the arrangement of the opening 30, 30 'and the interposed support webs 38 of the support region 27 can be seen. Of particular importance is the course of the side walls of the webs 38 such that the opening 30 of the support surface for the plate to the bottom of the support frame 21 out to expand. This allows the mechanical anchoring of the plate in the support frame 21 by means of passing through the opening 30 adhesive. The plate, not shown, is thereby also mechanically firmly connected to the support frame 21, since a kind of dovetail connection is formed.
  • Between the bottom of the support webs 38 and the openings 30 and the underside of the support web 21 a is a distance. The adhesive application on the upper side of the support web 38 takes place, for example, mechanically by means of a doctor blade. Alternatively, only the back of the plate may be coated with adhesive, or both. It is not always necessary to bring about a full-surface bonding. In some cases, it is sufficient to coat only partial surfaces with adhesive, wherein the adhesive may also be applied in the form of a bead of adhesive.
  • As adhesive thermoplastic adhesives, so-called hot melts may be used, but also one- or multi-component reactive adhesives, in particular polyurethane (PU) adhesive with a slight Anschäumverhalten.
  • Also in Fig. 12, the upper and the lower projections 25, 26 can be seen, wherein the projections 25, 26 on the support profile 21a, however, are not opposite, but are offset in the plane of the drawing by a distance, as shown in FIG is. However, here the interaction of the ratchet teeth can be seen well. It should be noted that the lower projection 26 has an elasticity to allow a sliding past the locking teeth. An additional alternative space is not provided here, since it is assumed is that the entire plate when loosening the locking connection can also be raised. Thus, a release of the latching connection is possible even if the upper latching projection would be supported directly on the underside of the plate.
  • FIG. 13 shows a section of the lower right-hand corner from FIG. 9. Evident here is the course of the edge profiles 21a, 21d and the protruding web 28 and a diagonal reinforcing rib 23 and the supporting profile 21a parallel reinforcing rib 22. Both the support profiles 21a, 21d and the reinforcing ribs 22, 23 have an insulating profile 36th which can be sharpened via a central injection point 40 in the region of the intersection point 24 into the grooves 35 provided after the support frame has been produced in a first injection process. The bearing surface between the edge profile 21a and the reinforcing rib 23 is provided with apertures 30, 30 ', between which the support webs 38 extend.
  • In Fig. 14a is again a section through the support profile 21a, 21d shown, which in turn can be seen that only the edge profile 21a is provided with the web 28, which acts as a stop for the plate, whereas the support profile 21d has no such web ,
  • In Fig. 15a, a particular embodiment of the seal 33 is shown. Instead of the sealing lips shown in FIG. 11, sealing beads 34 are provided, which project into a groove on the edge of the plate 2, 2 '. In the detail view according to FIG. 15b, it can be seen that the groove 41 can certainly also be larger than the sealing bead 34, as long as it is ensured that at least in sections a seal is made. There is thus a sealing surface 42 available.
  • As already mentioned, the connection of the plate to the support frame is produced for example by means of an adhesive technique. In this case, hot melt or a curable adhesive can be applied so that the adhesive passes through the conically widening openings 30 and causes a mechanical anchoring. On the bearing surface between the apertures a normal adhesive bond is present, so that the plate is fixed after curing of the adhesive both via the adhesive bond and on the mechanical anchoring in the manner of a dovetail connection.
  • The support frame may be provided with the thermoplastic elastomer by a two-component injection molding process and the impact sound insulation seal 33 with a hard-plastic material, such as the frame itself. Polystyrene or polyurethane comes into question and as impact sound insulation a thermoplastic elastomer TPE.
  • The locking teeth can also be using a single projection simply latching or as in the exemplary embodiment as a detent toothing multiple detent, so that optionally Maßdifferenzen be compensated. The locking connection is designed so that when lifting the plate at the opposite edge due to the leverage
  • a release is possible. In the case of a purely tensile loading of flatly laid plates, on the other hand, loosening should only be possible after exceeding the usual loads.
  • The one-sided locking connection of the second embodiment has the advantage that the overall height compared to a connector is again significantly reduced.
  • The impact sound insulation is embedded in the bearing surface, in the embodiment in the reinforcing ribs 22, 23 and the edge profiles 21a to d. This also makes it possible to achieve a low height. The footfall sound insulation can be designed so that in addition a slip-resistant effect is achieved.
  • The bottom plate formed of plate and support frame has due to the adhesive joint increased static strength, so that the required plate thickness in the case of granite plates from previously 10 mm to 8 mm or even up to 6 mm thickness is possible. This leads to a considerable material and thus cost savings in the production of a floor covering.
  • As already mentioned above, the insulating profile 36 projects beyond the underside of the edge profiles 21a-d or the reinforcing ribs 22, 23, but the underside of the support profiles or reinforcing ribs also come to rest under extreme load and thus prevent destruction of the impact sound insulation. The embedded in a groove impact sound insulation is therefore protected against damage under extreme load.
  • The adhesive itself should be chosen so that sufficient thermal stability is achieved when using underfloor heating. When laying outdoors, the adhesive must be weather-resistant.
