Description

  • The invention relates to a guide rail for a vertical awning to be mounted in a building opening of a building with lateral forced guidance of an awning cloth along a longitudinal direction of the guide rail. The guide rail has a Führungsnutprofil, which has a rear wall and a first and a second projecting from the rear wall legs, projecting from the first leg, a first projection and protrudes from the second leg, a second projection, so that between the rear wall, the first leg, the second leg, the first projection and the second projection a guide groove is defined. The guide groove has an opening formed between the first projection and the second projection, so that the first projection and the second projection form respective attachments for a drop bar, further comprising a first undercut on the first projection and a second undercut on the second projection is, wherein the undercuts are adapted to receive a recordable in the guide groove cloth guide insert against a force acting in a direction transverse to the opening and the longitudinal direction outwardly facing tensile direction to hold form-fitting. The guide groove profile is integrally formed. The guide rail furthermore has a carrier profile that can be fastened to a wall reveal or to a window frame, with which the guide groove profile is detachably connected in an assembled state.
  • Such guide rails are used for guiding vertical awnings. Such vertical awnings can be used, for example, to close a building opening. In such a For example, building opening may be an opening for a window. By means of the vertical awning, the building opening can be protected, for example against the ingress of gusts of wind, sunlight or insects. For this purpose, the awning fabric can be stretched over the building opening. For lateral guidance of the awning cloth typically two guide rails are mounted in a building opening, which are opposite to each other so that the openings of their respective guide grooves face each other.
  • In the respective guide grooves respective cloth guide inserts are included, which have suitable means for receiving and laterally guiding the awning cloth. For example, can be provided laterally on the awning fabric of the vertical awning a half-zipper with a plurality of juxtaposed, laterally projecting staples, which are received in a groove of the cloth guide insert. Such an arrangement is also referred to as half-zip. In this way, a lateral tension of the awning fabric can be achieved.
  • Furthermore, the invention relates to a vertical awning, which is constructed using at least one guide rail according to the invention.
  • An exemplary guide rail according to the prior art is in the document EP 1 669 537 A2 shown. Since guide inserts used typically have a shorter useful life than the guide rail and accordingly must be interchangeable even after mounting the guide rail on a building opening or on a window frame, the guide rail according to the prior art is formed in two parts, so that a part of the material, which Guide groove is limited, removable. For this purpose, a profile in which the guide groove is formed, formed in two parts. By removing one of these parts can be in the guide groove contained cloth guide insert laterally removed from the guide and a new cloth guide insert can be used.
  • However, it has been found that guide rails according to the prior art at the point at which the profile is divided, show an increased susceptibility to breakage. This means that, for example, when a side load occurs under the action of wind, the guide rail can break apart, which often occurs with a break off of material. The guide rail can be irreparably damaged.
  • The document WO 2009/098433 A1 shows an integrally formed Führungsnutprofil held by a clip, wherein the Führungsnutprofil can be rotated into the clip inside. The documents DE 600 31 500 T2 and US 4 638 844 A each show a guide rail with an integrally formed Führungsnutprofil. However, this must be moved to replace in the longitudinal direction, which is not possible in conventional installations. Thus, the carrier profile must be removed for replacement.
  • It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a guide rail for a vertical awning, which has an increased resistance to breakage and still allows easy replacement of the cloth guide insert. Furthermore, it is an object of the invention to provide a vertical awning with a guide rail according to the invention.
  • With regard to the guide rail, this object is achieved by a guide rail according to claim 1. With regard to the vertical awning, the object is achieved by a vertical awning according to claim 11. Advantageous developments can be obtained, for example, from the dependent claims.
  • With regard to the guide rail, the invention relates to a guide rail for a vertical awning to be mounted in a building opening of a building with lateral forced guidance of an awning cloth along a longitudinal direction of the guide rail. The guide rail has a Führungsnutprofil, which a rear wall and a first and a second leg projecting from the rear wall, wherein a first projection protrudes from the first leg and a second projection protrudes from the second leg, so that between the rear wall, the first leg, the second leg, the first Projection and the second projection, a guide groove is defined, which has an opening formed between the first projection and the second projection, so that the first projection and the second projection form respective attachments for a drop bar, and wherein on the first projection, a first undercut and a second undercut is provided on the second projection, the undercuts being designed to hold a cloth guide insert, which can be received in the guide groove, in a form-locking manner against a force which acts in a pulling direction pointing transversely to the opening and to the longitudinal direction.
  • The Führungsnutprofil is integrally formed, and the guide rail further comprises a fastened to a wall reveal or on a window frame carrier profile with which the Führungsnutprofil is detachably connected in an assembled state.
  • The carrier profile according to the invention has a first sliding surface, and the Führungsnutprofil further erfindungegemäß a second sliding surface, wherein the first sliding surface and the second sliding surface in the assembled state abut parallel to each other, and wherein the Führungsnutprofil sliding of the second sliding surface on the first sliding surface between a loose state in which the Führungsnutprofil is removable in the pulling direction of the carrier profile, is displaceable in the assembled state.
  • As a result of the guide rail according to the invention, it is achieved that the guide groove profile, in which the guide groove is formed, no longer has a risk of breakage. Rather, it is integrally formed. In the guide rail according to the invention, only the support profile is attached to a wall reveal and / or a window frame. The guide groove profile is detachable from the carrier profile. Since the Führungsnutprofil typically has at least one longitudinal end of an opening, the cloth guide insert can be removed after removing the Führungsnutprofils at this longitudinal end. Likewise, a new cloth guide insert can be used, and the guide groove profile can then be reconnected to the carrier profile.
  • The first and second sliding surfaces serve to define the movement which the guide groove profile makes in the transition between the mounted state and the loose state relative to the carrier profile. For example, both the first sliding surface and the second sliding surface may be an extended surface. However, it is understood that at least one of the sliding surfaces can also be defined by two runners, wherein the respective sliding surface is defined by a plane which bears against the two runners. A displacement of the Führungsnutprofils relative to the carrier profile is such a possible in such an embodiment that the mentioned plane is located on the runners of that element which has the runners, parallel to the sliding surface of the other element and is also displaced parallel to this plane.
  • With the guide rail according to the invention, it is possible to leave the carrier profile permanently mounted on a wall, while the Führungsnutprofil can be easily replaced. This facilitates considerably necessary repair work.
  • The back wall, the first leg, the second leg, the first projection and the second projection are arranged so as to enclose a guide groove. This implies certain restrictions on their arrangement. Preferably, the first and the second leg are in the same direction and parallel to each other from the rear wall, more preferably, each of the two legs is transverse to the rear wall.
  • The first and the second projection are preferably designed so that their respective systems face each other. In other words, the first and second protrusions preferably face each other directly so that apart from the opening formed between them, they have a common, flat outer surface.
  • The first projection is preferably arranged transversely to the first leg. Furthermore, the second leg is preferably also arranged transversely to the second projection.
  • Overall, when the first leg and the second leg are each arranged transversely to the rear wall, the first projection is transverse to the first leg and at the same time the second projection is transverse to the second leg and the respective distances of the projections of the rear wall are the same, achieved be that the guide has an at least substantially rectangular cross-section.
  • The first and second undercuts serve to hold the cloth guide insert against a force acting in the pulling direction, form-fitting. The pulling direction is transverse to the opening and transverse to the longitudinal direction. In other words, the pulling direction is that direction in which a tensile load is typically exerted by the awning cloth on the cloth guide insert and thus on the guide rail, for example when the awning cloth is caught by a gust of wind or a person moves the awning cloth to an outside or inside of the cloth Building presses. Under a positive attitude in a particular direction is understood in the context of this application that a held part can not move in the appropriate direction, because it is held by suitably trained material of another part.
  • The carrier profile is preferably provided with suitable means by means of which it can be fastened to a wall reveal and / or to a window frame. For example, holes may be provided in the carrier profile for this purpose, through each of which a screw can be plugged for attachment. The carrier profile can be designed so that it is directly adjacent to a window frame and secured thereto.
  • A detachable connection between the guide groove profile and the carrier profile can be achieved in various ways. For this purpose, the carrier profile preferably has at least one first and one second retaining projection, which in the assembled state hold the guide slot profile in the pulling direction in a form-fitting manner on the carrier profile. Such a retaining projection may be, for example, a flat piece of material which protrudes from a wall. Such has typically only a small extent in the pulling direction. Alternatively, however, such a retaining projection may also have a higher extension in the pulling direction.
  • More preferably, the Führungsnutprofil at least a first Gegenhaltevorsprung and a second Gegenhaltevorsprung, wherein the first counter-holding projection is formed to form in the mounted state to the first retaining projection of the support profile at least against a tensile force-holding, positive connection, and wherein the second Counter-holding projection is formed to form in the assembled state with the second retaining projection of the carrier profile at least against a force acting in the pulling direction, positive locking connection. The use of such counter-holding projections ensures that the guide groove profile in the mounted state is no longer removable in the pulling direction of the carrier profile. With an appropriate design can be, for example, say that the Führungsnutprofil is hooked into the carrier profile.
  • Preferably, at least one of the counter-holding projections is part of a U-shaped hook. Such a U-shaped hook can enclose one of the retaining projections of the carrier profile.
  • Preferably, the first retaining projection and the second retaining projection are formed to face towards an outer side of the building so that the Führungsnutprofil can be converted by movement toward an inside of the building in the assembled state. The carrier profile, on which the first and the second holding projection are formed, typically has a recognizable orientation, so that it is clear to the person skilled in the art which side of the carrier profile should point to an inside or outside of the building during assembly. Preferably, the carrier profile is formed so that it has means for fixing the carrier profile to a window box, for example corresponding holes. The side, which then shows the window frame after a corresponding installation, simultaneously shows the inside of the building, provided that the guide rail with respect to the window frame is mounted on the outside. The side which faces the side facing the window frame, then points to the outside.
  • The formation of the retaining projections, so that they point to an outside of the building, can reduce the space requirement between the support profile and the window frame. This is especially true when the Führungsnutprofil has a cover which can cover a part of the support profile, which is to be disposed adjacent to the window frame, whereby, for example, a better aesthetics is achieved. If the two retaining projections pointing in the opposite direction, ie the inside of the building, so a distance between the support rail and the window frame would have to be provided so that the distance can accommodate a part of the Führungsnutprofils before the Führungsnutprofil is moved in the mounted state. This space between the window frame and the carrier profile would remain free after completion of the assembly, which can damage the aesthetics as well as the stability.
  • A more general condition for the desired functionality may also be expressed such that the first retaining projection and the second Holding projection are preferably formed to face away from a side surface of the carrier profile, which is adapted to be adjacent to a window frame, so that the guide groove profile can be converted by moving toward the window frame in the assembled state. This condition is independent of which side of a window frame the guide rail is to be mounted.
  • In a further generalized form, the aforementioned preferred embodiment of the two holding projections can also be understood so that the guide groove profile is preferably moved in the mounted state in the direction of one side of the carrier profile, which is designed to be applied to a window frame.
  • Preferably, the carrier profile has a number of first bores, and the Führungsnutprofil further preferably has a number of second holes, wherein in the assembled state each one of the first holes covers a respective one of the second holes, so that a respective screw can be inserted therethrough. This makes it possible to secure the guide slot profile relative to the carrier profile by means of the screw against displacement. It has already been stated that the carrier profile and the guide groove profile are designed according to the invention in such a way that they can be transferred by displacement relative to one another from the loose state into the mounted state. In the assembled state while the Führungsnutprofil is held positively in the pulling direction on the carrier profile. The just mentioned screws, with which the guide groove profile can be held relative to the carrier profile, can prevent such displacement. In particular, this can be prevented that the Führungsnutprofil shifts from the assembled state to the loose state. Such a screw does not have to absorb high forces, since the displacement against which it secures would take place transversely to the direction of pull, with no high forces normally acting in such directions. A force acting in the pulling direction, for example due to a gust of wind, does not have to be absorbed by the screw, but instead rather, of the positive connection. Therefore, weaker, for example, smaller and / or fewer screws can be used than if the screws had to absorb a force acting in the pulling direction.
  • It should be noted that among a number of elements in the context of this application, in principle, either such an element or any number of such elements is understood.
  • Particularly preferably, the first bores are formed parallel to the first sliding surface and the second bores are formed parallel to the second sliding surface. This is achieved, for example, in that the respective bores are formed in planar material, and this material is in each case parallel to the respective sliding surface. Thus, the screw, which is inserted through two overlapping holes, transverse to the two sliding surfaces and can prevent sliding of the Führungsnutprofils relative to the carrier profile in a particularly advantageous manner.
  • In the assembled state, the guide rail is preferably held by a number of screws which are inserted through a first bore and a second bore, so that a displacement of the Führungsnutprofils relative to the carrier profile in a direction transverse to the longitudinal direction and transverse to the direction of pull direction prevented becomes.
  • In the loose state, the guide groove profile can be removed in the pulling direction of the carrier profile. This allows easy removal, since the guide groove profile does not have to be moved along the longitudinal direction of the guide rail. It suffices to move in the pulling direction in which sufficient space is available under normal installation conditions. When mounting the Führungsnutprofils to the support profile of this is first transferred in a direction opposite to the pulling direction in the loose state, to be subsequently moved in the mounted state. This is the same just as easy as removal, because no longitudinal movement is necessary.
  • Preferably, in the carrier profile or in the Führungsnutprofil a running along the longitudinal direction cable channel is formed, which can serve for example for guiding electrical lines. In addition or as an alternative, a channel is preferably formed for receiving a pin projecting downwards from a guide rail arranged above the guide rail, which pin can serve to fix the guide rail relative to the awning box. It should be understood that a channel may also have both functions mentioned.
  • Preferably, the carrier profile has a back, with which it can rest against a wall reveal in the mounted state, and further preferably has a cleaning edge, which forms a carrier profile on a side transverse to the rear side at least partially flat outer wall bounding the carrier profile. With the help of such a cleaning edge, the support profile can be at least partially mounted under plaster. The cleaning edge serves as a conclusion to a side on which the support profile to the plaster, for example, a normal plaster of Paris is adjacent. Particularly preferably, the cleaning edge is formed on one side, which is opposite to a side which is designed to adjoin a window frame. Thus, the carrier profile between a plaster applied to the wall reveal plaster and the window frame can be attached.
  • The guide groove profile preferably also has a cutout of the guide groove at least at one of its longitudinal ends. Such a cutout typically means that at a longitudinal end along a portion, part of the material of the guide groove profile adjacent to the side of the guide groove profile on which the opening is formed is removed. Thus, the removal and attachment of the Führungsnutprofils on the carrier profile, in particular when the carrier profile on a wall reveal, for example below a Awning box is mounted, to be relieved. This happens because of the milling more space for introducing the Führungsnutprofils available. The required functionality for holding and replacing the cloth guide element is not affected thereby.
  • With regard to the vertical awning, the invention relates to a vertical awning comprising an awning box, at least a first and a second guide rail, a first and a second cloth guide insert and an awning fabric with a drop bar, wherein the first and the second guide rail are in the mounted state, parallel to each other each facing each other facing openings are mounted, and have each received a cloth guide inserts in the respective guide groove, wherein the awning box is mounted over the guide rails and the awning cloth hanging from the awning box so that the drop rod is held by the respective equipment to the projections of the guide rails and is located at a longitudinal end of the awning cloth opposite the awning box, and further wherein the awning cloth on two opposite, the guide rails facing longitudinal sides by means of respective guide means, for example e Half zips, is guided in the respective cloth guide inserts.
  • The guide rails are those as described above with reference to a guide rail according to the invention. The guide rails can be designed according to the mentioned possible developments and designs, making use of the advantages mentioned in each case. The advantages mentioned with reference to a guide rail thereby benefit the vertical awning according to the invention.
  • Preferably, the first and second fabric guide inserts comprise cloth guide means. This may be, for example, each a groove, in which juxtaposed, laterally from the awning fabric protruding cramps can be recorded. The cramps have a variable cross-section, wherein substantially the cross-section of the awning fabric viewed from the outside rises. Thus, the staples have both a portion which fits into an opening of the groove, as well as another portion which is received in the groove and no longer fits through the opening. Alternatively, the awning cloth can also be received in the opening, and the respective staples have a cross-section so that they no longer fit through the opening. Likewise, the awning cloth may alternatively have a piping on the respective side, which can also be accommodated in the groove of the cloth guide insert. In this way, a cloth guide means on the one hand lead the cloth, on the other hand also exert a pulling force in a direction opposite to the pulling direction on the awning cloth. It should be noted that an arrangement of adjacent staples laterally on the awning cloth can also be referred to as a half-zip. If the awning fabric is to be unwrapable, as is typically the case, a semi-zipper or piping will be selected thereafter to provide the necessary flexibility in winding.
  • Preferably, the first and the second cloth guide insert each have tensioning means which tension the awning cloth on the longitudinal sides. The tensioning means preferably each have an elastically deformable material which bears deformed against the respective backbones of the respective guide rail. Such an elastically deformable material typically has the property of exerting upon deformation a force on its environment which attempts to reverse the deformation. In the case of the vertical awning according to the invention, this property can serve to tension the awning fabric. The force exerted by the tensioning means on the remaining part of the respective cloth guide insert typically points in a direction opposite to the direction of pull. Thus, when the awning fabric is connected to the fabric guide insert as just described, the awning fabric is stretched in the direction opposite to the pulling direction. This may, for example, be desired to cause a flutter To prevent the awning fabric and to ensure good aesthetics by tightening the awning fabric.
  • The mentioned drop bar of the vertical awning, serves to tension the awning cloth in a vertical direction. In other words, the drop bar causes an end of the awning cloth opposite the awning box to be pulled downwards. Also, this can prevent flutter and the awning fabric can be stretched shapely smooth.
  • Further features and advantages will become apparent to those skilled in the art with reference to the embodiments described below with reference to the figures. It should be understood that the following and the features described above may be combined as desired without departing from the spirit of the invention.

  • It should be mentioned that the FIGS. 1 to 4 Cross-sectional views are, which are to be understood so that the respective profiles along a direction perpendicular to the paper plane longitudinal direction has a substantially invariable, namely the cross section shown. In the following description, details such as above, below, right and left basically refer to the illustrated cross-sectional view of the respective figure, regardless of how a guide rail would actually be installed.
  • FIG. 1 shows an inventive embodiment of a carrier profile 100. The carrier profile 100 has a side wall 110 which forms a side surface which is adapted to adjoin an adjacent window frame after assembly. Furthermore, the carrier profile 100 has a rear side 120, which is designed to be adjacent to a wall reveal of a building opening after assembly. The side wall 110 and the back 120 are at right angles to each other.
  • In the side wall 110, a first mounting hole 115 is formed, through which a first fastening screw 20 can be inserted. The first fastening screw 20 can serve to secure the carrier profile 100 to an adjacent window frame. In addition, a second fastening bore 125 is formed in the rear side 120, through which a second fastening screw 30 can be inserted therethrough. The second fastening screw 30 can serve to secure the carrier profile 100 to a wall reveal.
  • The carrier profile 100 furthermore has a first fastening projection 130 with a first holding surface 135 and a second fastening projection 140 with a second holding surface 145. The first holding surface 135 and the second holding surface 145 point in the direction of the rear side 120. Thus, the first retaining projection 130 and the second retaining projection 140 serve to hold by means of their respective retaining surfaces 135, 145 a Führungsnutprofil at least in one direction transverse to the support surfaces 135, 145 positively.
  • Furthermore, the carrier profile 100 has a first sliding surface 150. The first sliding surface 150 is formed parallel to the holding surfaces 135, 145 and makes it possible for a guide groove profile to be connected to the carrier profile 100 to be displaced along the first sliding surface 150.
  • In addition, the carrier profile 100 has a cleaning edge 160; which forms a carrier profile partially partially bounding outer wall of the carrier profile. The cleaning edge 160 is formed on an opposite side wall 110 of the carrier profile 100. The cleaning edge 160 is as in Fig. 1 It can be seen shorter than the side wall 110. It can be used after installation of the support profile 100 adjacent to a wall reveal and a retaining frame to provide an outer wall, which can be plastered. For example, adjacent to the plaster edge 160, so much plaster can be applied to the wall reveal that the plaster edge 160 is no longer visible from this side. This allows a shapely installation of the carrier profile 100th
  • In the carrier profile 100 a plurality of first bores are formed, of which example a first bore 170 in FIG. 1 is shown and described. The first bore 170 is formed in the back 120. The first bore 170 can be used to secure a guide groove profile to be connected to the carrier profile 100 against displacement along the first sliding surface 150. This will be described below.
  • The carrier profile 100 also has a channel 190, which can serve as a cable channel or for fixing the carrier profile to a mounted above a guide rail awning box by means of this case downwardly projecting pin.
  • FIG. 2 shows an inventive embodiment of a Führungsnutprofils 200th
  • The guide groove profile 200 has a cover 210 which covers part of a carrier profile when the guide groove profile 200 is connected to a carrier profile.
  • Next, the guide groove 200 has a parallel to the cover 210 bottom plate 220. The bottom plate 220 forms on one side a first counter-holding projection 230. The first counter-holding projection is flat and has at its in FIG. 2 upwardly facing side on a first counter-holding surface 235. The first counter-holding surface 235 is adapted, in the assembled state, to adjoin a holding surface of a carrier profile and thus form a positive connection, which holds the guide groove profile 200 at least in one direction transversely to the first counter-holding surface 235. As will be shown below, the first counter-holding surface 235 adjoins when the guide groove profile 200 with a carrier profile 100 according to FIG. 1 is connected to the first holding surface 135 of the carrier profile 100 at.
  • The guide groove profile also has a second counter-holding projection 240. This is part of a U-shaped hook, which is formed on the bottom plate 220. Thus, the second counter-holding projection 240 is spaced from the bottom plate 220. The second counter-holding projection has a second counter-holding surface 245 which points towards the bottom plate 220 and in the same direction as the first counter-holding surface 235. The second counter-holding surface 245 is also formed parallel to the first counter-holding surface 235.
  • The second counter-holding surface 245 is adapted, in the mounted state, to adjoin a holding surface of a carrier profile and thus form a positive connection, which holds the guide groove profile 200 at least against a force acting in a direction transverse to the second counter-holding surface 245. As will be shown below, the second counter-holding surface 245 adjoins when the guide groove profile 200 with a carrier profile 100 according to FIG. 1 is connected to the second support surface 145 of the carrier profile 100 at.
  • By the first counter-holding projection 230 and the second counter-holding projection 240 with their respective counter-holding surfaces 235, 245, the guide groove profile 200 can be positively connected to a carrier profile in two places. At both Gegenhaltevorsprüngen 230, 240 prevents the positive connection at least one movement in a direction transverse to the counter-holding surfaces 235, 245 and away from the carrier profile. This prevents removal of the guide groove profile 200 from the carrier profile, as long as the guide groove profile 200 can not be displaced parallel to the counter-holding surfaces 235, 245 relative to the carrier profile. Such displacement, in turn, can be suitably prevented by a screw, as will be described below.
  • The guide groove profile 200 further has a second sliding surface 250, which is formed on the bottom plate 220 and in the representation of FIG. 2 pointing down. The second sliding surface 250 is adapted to limit when mounting the Führungsnutprofils 200 to a support profile to a corresponding sliding surface of the carrier profile, so that the two sliding surfaces are parallel to each other and can be moved against each other. If the Führungsnutprofil 200, for example, with a support profile 100 according to FIG. 1 is to be connected, the second sliding surface 250 of the guide groove 200 may be adjacent to the first sliding surface 150 of the carrier profile 100. Along the two sliding surfaces 150, 250 then the Führungsnutprofil 200 and the carrier profile 100 can be moved relative to each other. By means of such a displacement, the guide groove profile 200 and the carrier profile 100 can be moved from an unassembled, also referred to as loose state in the assembled state and vice versa, wherein in the assembled state, the holding projections 130, 140, 230, 240 in the manner already described positive connections form.
  • In the Führungsnutprofil 200 a plurality of second bores are formed, of which, for example, a second bore 270 in FIG. 2 is shown and described. Through the second hole 270, a screw can be inserted therethrough. The second bore 270 is formed to cover the first bore 170 of a carrier profile 100 when connected to the carrier profile 100. The bolt inserted through the second bore 270 can thus also be inserted through the first bore 170 of the carrier profile 100. Thus, a movement of the Führungsnutprofils 200 relative to Carrier profile 100 parallel to the two sliding surfaces 150, 250 are prevented. This leads, as already described above, to an attachment of the guide groove profile 200 to the carrier profile 100.
  • In the Führungsnutprofil 200, a guide groove 300 is formed, which is enclosed in a manner to be described by parts of the Führungsnutprofils 200.
  • On the bottom plate 220, a rear wall 305 is formed on an opposite side of the second sliding surface 250. The rear wall 305 limits the guide groove 300 on one side.
  • From the rear wall 305 are a first leg 310 and a second leg 340 from. The legs 310, 340 are parallel to each other and each formed at right angles to the rear wall 305. In addition, they protrude in the same direction from the rear wall 305. Thus they limit the guide groove 305 on two opposite sides.
  • From the first leg 310 in turn is a first projection 320 from, in the representation of FIG. 2 to the right. The first projection 320 is perpendicular to the first leg 310 and thus also parallel to the rear wall 305. Similarly, from the second leg 340, a second projection 350 from. This is perpendicular to the second leg 340 and thus parallel to the rear wall 305. The first projection 320 and the second projection 350 are formed so that they define the guide groove 300 on a side opposite the rear wall 305 side, but between the first projection 320th and the second projection 350 is left an opening 370. The opening 370 can serve, for example, to allow an awning cloth, which usually has only a small thickness, to enter the guide groove 300. In addition, a drop bar attached to the awning cloth can be received in the opening 370. For this purpose, the first projection 320 forms a first attachment 325 and the second projection 350 forms a second plant 355. The plants 325, 355 may serve to guide a drop rod received therebetween so that it only extends along the plane perpendicular to the plane of the paper FIG. 2 can move stationary longitudinal direction. Unwanted slacking or swinging away of the drop bar can thus be prevented.
  • At the first projection 320, a first undercut 330 is formed, which faces toward the interior of the guide groove 300. Likewise, a second undercut 360 is formed on the second projection 350, which also points toward the interior of the guide groove 300. Thus, the undercuts 330, 360 can be used to hold a deployable in the guide groove 300 cloth guide insert 400 positively in a pulling direction 380. For this purpose, suitably designed parts of the cloth guide insert 400 adjoin the undercuts 330, 360, as will be described in more detail below.
  • Between the first undercut 330 and the opening 370, a first boundary 335 is formed which is perpendicular to the first undercut and faces the rear wall 305. Likewise, a second boundary 365 is formed between the second undercut 360 and the opening 370, which is perpendicular to the second undercut 360 and points to the rear wall 305. The two boundaries 335, 365 delimit the opening 370 laterally and form an additional guide for a cloth guide insert 400 to be received in the guide groove 300. In addition, the limitations can reduce the penetration of water into the guide groove 300.
  • On the second leg 340 and the second projection 350, a cable channel 390 is formed, which can be used to guide an electrical cable in the longitudinal direction through the guide groove profile 200. Alternatively or additionally, the cable channel 390 may also be used to locate a pin which is disposed above the guide slot profile 200 Awning box protrudes down to accommodate. Thus, the Führungsnutprofil can be fixed relative to the awning box.
  • In FIG. 2 Furthermore, a cloth guide insert 400 is shown, which is received in the guide groove 300 of the guide groove profile 200. The cloth guide insert 400 has a first clamping means 410 and a second clamping means 420, which are both formed of elastic material. The first clamping means 410 adjoins the first undercut 330. Similarly, the second clamping means 420 adjoins the second undercut 360. Thus, the fabric guide insert 400 is held in the pulling direction 380 by the undercuts 330, 360 positively. The fabric guide insert 400 can not pass through the opening 370 and therefore can not be removed through the opening 370. Rather, the cloth guide insert 400 can be removed through an open longitudinal end of the guide groove profile 400, through which it can also be used.
  • The cloth guide insert 400 further includes a cloth guiding means 430 formed as a groove provided inside the cloth guiding insert 400. An awning cloth can be held by the cloth guide means, which is to be tensioned between two guide rails attached to opposite wall revealings of a wall opening. For this purpose, the awning cloth can have hooks which are lined up next to one another at which it is to be held by the cloth guide means 430 and which can form a semi-zipper. Alternatively, the awning fabric on the side to be held also have a piping. By a form-fitting connection to be formed therewith, a force can be exerted against the pulling direction 380 on the awning cloth, as a result of which it can be tensioned.
  • A force acting in the pulling direction 380 on the cloth guide insert 400 causes the clamping means 410, 420 to deform elastically. Since the elastic material of the clamping means 410, 420 counteracts such deformation, is a directed against the pulling direction 380 force exerted on the awning fabric. In this way, a deformation of the awning fabric from a smooth state can be counteracted. Likewise, a bias of the awning fabric can be achieved when the clamping means 410, 420 are already in the assembly of a vertical awning in a deformed state. Then, even if no external force acts on the awning cloth, an exciting force is exerted on the awning cloth. So it can be beautifully kept smooth.
  • As was clear from the above description, the cloth guide insert 400 exerts forces on the undercuts 330, 360 in the pulling direction 380. If the awning cloth is pretensioned as just described, these forces even act permanently. For example, if the awning cloth is caught by a gust of wind and deforms, the forces acting on the undercuts 330, 360 are increased. Here is an advantage of the inventive design of a guide rail to bear, namely that the Führungsnutprofil 200 is integrally formed. In contrast to the prior art, there is no connection point at which the guide groove profile 200 would be dismantled into two parts, and which would have an increased risk of breakage. The inventive design of the Führungsnutprofils 200 thus increased reliability and service life is achieved.
  • FIG. 3 shows the carrier profile 100 and the guide groove profile 200 with the included cloth guide insert 400 in a separate state. The guide groove profile 200 is already partially inserted into the carrier profile 100, but not yet connected to it. The support profile is typically already fastened to a window frame by means of the first fastening screw 20 during assembly and to a wall reveal by means of the second fastening screw 30, so that it adjoins the window frame with the side wall 110 and adjoins the wall reveal with the rear side 120.
  • In the presentation of FIG. 3 For example, the first sliding surface 150 and the second sliding surface 250 are aligned parallel to each other. It can already be seen that when the guide groove profile 200 is moved down onto the carrier profile 100, the second sliding surface 250 will contact the first sliding surface 150. Next then the Führungsnutprofil 200 can not be moved down.
  • It should be understood that a move down in FIG. 3 corresponds to a movement against the pulling direction. A movement upwards corresponds to a movement in the pulling direction. These are also the directions in which the guide groove profile 200 is brought to the carrier profile 100 or removed therefrom.
  • The first counter-holding projection 230 and the second counter-holding projection 240 pass in a downward movement of the guide groove profile 200 on the first retaining projection 130 and the second retaining projection 140. The freedom of movement of the guide groove profile 200 is sufficient to bring the first counter-holding projection 230 under the first retaining projection 130 and corresponding to the second counter-holding projection 240 under the second retaining projection 140. Subsequently, only the guide groove profile 200 is pushed relative to the carrier profile 100 to the left for the transition to the assembled state, resulting in the in FIG. 4 shown state results.
  • FIG. 4 shows an inventive embodiment of a guide rail 10 in the mounted state, which consists of a carrier profile 100 according to FIG. 1 and a Führungsnutprofil according to FIG. 2 is composed. As shown, the first retaining projection 130 and the first counter-holding projection 230 form a form-locking connection which holds the guide groove profile 200 in the pulling direction 380. Likewise, the second retaining projection 140 and the second counter-holding projection 240 form a positive connection, which also holds the guide slot profile 200 in the pulling direction 380. A removal of the Führungsnutprofils 200 of the support rail 100 in the pulling direction would only be possible if the Führungsnutprofil 200 is moved relative to the carrier profile 100 to the right. However, this is prevented by a screw 205 which is inserted through the first bore 170 and the second bore 270. In other words, the screw 205 prevents the first sliding surface 150 and the second sliding surface 250 from sliding against each other. Due to the form-fitting connections between the holding projections 130, 140 and the respective counter-holding projections 230, 240, this holding action of the screw 205 is sufficient to hold the guide slot profile 200 securely on the carrier profile 100. By removing the screw 205, in turn, the Führungsnutprofil 200 can be pushed to the right in a loose state, which allows removal of the Führungsnutprofils 200 of the support section 100.
  • In the state of FIG. 4 The cover 210 of the guide groove profile 200 covers a part of the carrier profile 100. As a result, a shapely design of the guide rail 10 is achieved. It will also be appreciated that there is an advantage in that the first and second retaining projections 130, 140 face in a direction away from the side wall 110 which is intended to abut a window frame. The guide groove profile 200 can be pushed from the right side into the assembled state. Thus, the cover 210 is in principle right, so on a side facing away from the window frame side wall 110. The described assembly process can thus also take place when the window 110 directly adjacent to the side wall. If the retaining projections 130, 140 pointed in the opposite direction, a space between the window frame and the side wall 110 would have to be left free, which would disturb the visual impression and possibly allow the ingress of rain.
  • FIG. 5 shows a built into a total designated 50 drive bay vertical awning according to an inventive embodiment. The drive slot 50 is located on the outside of a window inserted into a building opening (not shown).
  • The the FIG. 5 underlying vertical awning has, below the drive bay 50 on both sides of the window on a guide rail 10, on which an awning box 500 is placed with its side panels or caps. The awning box 500 contains on its front sides two suitable prepared as moldings caps, which may be provided with downwardly projecting pin for connection to the guide rails 10. On the caps a multi-sided circumferential jacket is constructed, which in the example shown, an outer wall part 510, an upper part 520 and an inner wall part 530 has. The inner wall part 530 is designed as a support cross member 530 for a broadside profile 540.
  • On the other hand, the outer side wall 510 opposite the broad side profile 540 or the support cross member 530 has a supplementary inspection cover 550 detachable from below which, together with the broad side profile 540, defines the broad sides of a cloth outlet opening 560 which is delimited on its narrow sides by the guide rails 10. The broad side profile 540 is removable for inspection purposes from below and thus forms a revision cover or a part of a broadside profile 540 and the additional inspection cover 550 formed inspection cover assembly over which the interior of the awning box 500 is accessible, which at the same time an installation space 570 for one with 580th designated winding shaft and attached thereto and wound thereon awning fabric 600 forms.
  • The winding shaft 580 is mounted on the two caps of the awning box 500. At the lower end of the awning cover 600 - attached, for example, on the shown unspecified Kederanordnung - a weighted with a relatively large weight drop bar 610, which is guided in the guide rails 10 through the respective systems 325, 355 and ensures that the awning fabric 600 in the developed position is tightly held by the Tuchauslassöffnung 560 and in the further course along the guide rails 10 to tension. The underside of the drop bar 610 is in the shown fully wound state of the awning 600 flush with a lower surface of the additional inspection cover 550 and a lower surface of the broadside profile 540, so that except for two relatively small slots on both sides of the drop bar 610 a closed surface at the bottom of the awning 500 and thus gives a very high quality visual appearance.
