Abstract

An assembly for making a lamp incorporated into a wall of perforated bricks or blocks, or into a panel cladding of a wall, comprising a front body (10) wherein is made a light emission cavity, a lamp housing (18) that forms a lamp seat (182) suitable to house a lamp body (8), and a rear body (20) forming a housing seat (22) suitable to receive with shape-coupling the lamp housing protruding from the rear of the front body (10). The rear body (20) is suitable to be coupled to the front body (10) so as to form a monobloc panel (30) substantially parallelepiped in shape which completely incorporates the lamp housing and which is suitable to be inserted and fixed between the bricks, blocks or panels forming the wall or a cladding of the wall.

Description

  • The present invention concerns an assembly and a method for making a lamp incorporated in a wall or in a wall cladding, in particular in a polystyrene insulation wall cladding, or in a wall made of perforated bricks or blocks of other heat-insulating and/or sound-absorbing materials.
  • Recessed lamps are already well known, i.e. those having the housing that houses the light source placed in a seat obtained in a wall or extending inside a cavity made from a plasterboard panel.
  • A gap is usually made in the wall and, after positioning the lamp, the wall is restored, taking care to connect the visible surface of the wall to the edge of the lamp that delimits the emission opening of the light beam.
  • Even though maximum care is taken in restoring the wall around the lamp, an attentive eye will always note the difference between the original wall and the portion reconstructed around the lamp.
  • Sometimes, to hide the connection area between the reconstructed wall and the lamp, large frames are used around the emission opening of the light beam.
  • In the case of installation in a masonry wall, in order to overcome such drawbacks, in a previous patent application with publication number WO 2017/081653 A1 , in the name of the same applicant, an assembly and a method for making a lamp incorporated in a masonry wall, for example a load-bearing wall made of reinforced concrete, have been proposed. Such an assembly comprises a lamp housing which delimits a lamp seat suitable for housing a lamp body and which is intended to be incorporated within the masonry wall, and a mold suitable to be removably fixed to the lamp housing and having a front opening suitable to be placed in contact with the inner side of a formwork. After casting the cement into the formwork, the mold forms a light emission cavity, which is suitable to rigidly support the lamp housing before and during casting of the cement and is provided with mold fixing means suitable to removably fix the mold to the inner side of the formwork.
  • The object of the present invention is to propose an assembly and a method for obtaining a lamp inside a wall made of perforated bricks, blocks of another material or in an outer coating of the wall, in particular an insulation layer made of polystyrene panels.
  • Another object of the invention is to propose an assembly and a method that allow even a non-specialized operator, such as the mason himself, to incorporate a lamp into a wall cladding, such as an insulation layer, quickly, safely and, at the same time, very precisely.
  • Said objects are achieved with an assembly according to claim 1 and with a method according to claim 10. The dependent claims describe preferred embodiments of the invention.
  • The features and advantages of the assembly of the method according to the invention will, in any case, become evident from the following description of their preferred examples of embodiment, provided by way of indicative and non-limiting examples, with reference to the accompanying figures, wherein:
    • figure 1 is a perspective view in separate parts of the assembly according to the invention, in one embodiment;
    • figure 2 is a perspective view of the assembled assembly;
    • figures 3 and 3a are a front view and a side view of the assembly;
    • figure 3b is an axial section of the assembly, assembled and provided with a lamp body;
    • figure 4 shows a portion of the wall with a cladding insulation layer and lamp incorporated in the insulation layer by means of an assembly in the preceding figures;
    • figure 5 is a perspective view in separate parts of the assembly according to the invention, in a variant embodiment;
    • figure 6 is a perspective view of the assembly in figure 5 assembled;
    • figures 7 and 7a are a front view and a side view of the assembly in figure 6;
    • figure 8 shows a wall portion made of perforated bricks and a lamp incorporated in the wall by means of an assembly in figures 5-7; and
    • figure 9 shows a wall portion made of heat-insulating and/or sound-absorbing blocks and a lamp incorporated in the wall by means of an assembly in figures 5-7.
  • In the rest of the description, elements common to the different embodiments, or equivalent to each other, will be indicated at the same reference numbers.
  • Moreover, unless otherwise specified, features described with reference to one embodiment may also be employed in other embodiments.
  • In the description below, the terms 'front' and 'rear' are used to refer to the wall, or a wall cladding thereof, which has a front side, facing outwards, and a rear side, opposite to the front side.
  • Figures 1-4 illustrate an assembly 1 to make a lamp incorporated in an insulation layer 2 of a wall cladding 3, consisting of polystyrene panels 4.
  • The assembly 1 comprises a front body 10 wherein a light emission cavity 12 is obtained.
  • The light emission cavity 12 extends from a rear body opening 14 to a front body opening 16. For example, the light emission cavity 12 is delimited by a substantially flat top wall 12' and a lower wall 12" inclined so that the light is emitted from the cavity 12 illuminating such inclined lower wall 12".
  • The front body 10 forms a substantially flat front surface 102 extending around the front body opening 16.
  • Moreover, the front body 10 forms two side walls 104 that define the thickness of the front body 10.
  • The assembly 1 comprises a lamp housing 18 which forms internally a lamp seat 182 suitable to house a lamp body 8 (figure 3b).
  • The lamp housing 18 delimits a rear housing opening 184 for the passage of the power supply cables of the lamp body and a front housing opening 186, for the emission of the light beam generated by the lamp body 8.
  • For example, the front housing opening 186 is closed by an optical element 82.
  • In one embodiment, the rear housing opening 184 is suitable for the passage of a corrugated tube 19 that carries the power cables.
  • The front housing opening 186 is suitable to face or be partially inserted into the rear body opening 14.
  • The assembly 1 further comprises a rear body 20 forming a housing seat 22 suitable to receive with shape-coupling the lamp housing 18 protruding from the rear of the front body 10.
  • The rear body 20 is suitable to be coupled to the front body 10 so as to form a monobloc panel 30 substantially parallelepiped in shape which completely incorporates the lamp housing 18.
  • This monobloc panel 30 is suitable to be inserted and fixed in a corresponding volume formed between panels or blocks that form the cladding of the wall.
  • In addition, the front surface 102 is suitable to receive a finishing layer 5 of the wall cladding.
  • In the example of figures 1-4, the monobloc panel 30 has at least the same thickness, preferably the same dimensions, as the polystyrene panels 4 and is used to replace one of these panels, as shown in figure 4.
  • Preferably, the front 10 and rear 20 bodies are also made of polystyrene, so that the assembly 1, in addition to obtaining the lamp incorporated in the insulation, also performs the function of thermal insulation like the other panels 4.
  • In one embodiment, in the front body 10, pre-cut incisions 32 are made, which may be used to resize the front body 10 according to the dimensions of the polystyrene panels between which the monobloc panel 30 is to be inserted.
  • In addition, in one embodiment, on the front surface 102 of the front body 10, reference marks 34 are made for the application of bolts 35 for fastening the monobloc panel 30 to the wall 3. The reference marks 34 are positioned in such a way that the bolts pass through the monobloc panel 30 in areas where the optical, electrical and mechanical elements of the assembly 1 are not present.
  • In one embodiment, the rear body 20 is equipped with coupling pins 36 that fit into corresponding coupling holes made in a rear wall of the front body 10.
  • In one embodiment, the front body 10 forms, in an upper portion thereof, a rear cutout 38 that is filled by the rear body 20.
  • In one embodiment, such rear cutout 38 is delimited below by an inclined support wall 40 wherein the light emission cavity 12 leads, forming the rear body opening 14.
  • Correspondingly, the rear body 20 has a lower wall 202 inclined to complement the inclined support wall 40 and suitable to rest on such inclined support wall 40.
  • In the rear body 20 there are, moreover, one or more recesses 204, 206, for example in the vertical and/or lateral direction, for passing and guiding the power cables, preferably inserted in the corrugated tube 19.
  • In one embodiment, the lamp housing 18 is provided, in a front portion thereof, with a perimeter flange 188 adapted to abut against the inclined support wall 40 of the front body 10, which delimits the rear body opening 14.
  • In one embodiment, between the perimeter flange 188 and the inclined support wall 40 there is interposed an annular plate 42 made of metallic material, for example steel. Especially in the case of a polystyrene front body 10, the annular plate 42 serves as a reference and protection for supporting the lamp housing 18. While assembling the assembly 1, in effect, if the lamp housing 18 is pressed too hard against the inclined support wall 40, the latter could yield, compromising the perfect alignment between the lamp body 8 and the light emission cavity 12.
  • In one embodiment, illustrated in figures 5-7 but also applicable to the assembly 1 described above, the front body opening 16 is delimited by an opening edge 44 protruding relative to the front surface 102 which receives the finishing layer 5. The height of this opening edge 44 is substantially equal to the thickness of the finishing layer 5 so that the front opening 16 lies in an opening plane coplanar to the outer surface of the finishing layer 5.
  • This contrivance allows the desired effect of perfect coplanarity to be obtained between the outer surface of the finishing layer 5 and the edge that delimits the front body opening 16, highlighted on the left side of figures 4, 8 and 9, even in the case of a finishing layer of a certain thickness, such as for example in the case of plaster.
  • In one embodiment, the opening edge 44 is connected to the front surface 102 by means of an inclined joining surface 46 wherein it is also possible to obtain a Greek key corrugated pattern 48 for adhering to the finishing layer 5.
  • Figures 5, 6 and 7 show an assembly 100 that is particularly suitable for use in a perforated brick wall 104 (figure 8) or in blocks 106 made of a heat-insulating and/or sound-absorbing material, for example the cement-based material marketed under the name of Leca®.
  • The assembly 100 differs from the assembly 1 described above in that, in the side parts 104 of the front body 10, grooves 108 are made suitable to facilitate the connection with the adjacent bricks or blocks by means of cement.
  • Also object of the invention is a method for incorporating a lamp into a wall, or wall cladding, with panels 4, perforated bricks 104 or blocks 106, using an assembly 1, 100 as described above.
  • The method provides for laying the cladding panels on the wall or making the wall out of perforated bricks or blocks.
  • A space is made in the cladding or wall for the assembly to be inserted.
  • The assembly, equipped with a lamp body, is inserted in said space.
  • At this point, the assembly may be anchored to the wall or to adjacent panels, bricks or blocks.
  • Finally, an outer finishing layer may be applied on the panels, bricks or blocks and on the front surface of the assembly.
  • In one embodiment, before the application of the outer finishing layer, a protective cap is inserted into the light emission cavity 12, preferably slightly recessed with respect to the edge that delimits the front opening of the cavity. The protective cap protects the inside of cavity 12, and in particular the lower inclined wall 12", from dirt caused during the application of the finishing layer 5, especially in the case of plaster. After the application of the finishing layer, the protective cap may be removed.
  • If it is a question of incorporating the lamp into an insulation layer made of polystyrene panels, the assembly has at least the same depth as the polystyrene panels and the assembly is used in place of a polystyrene panel.
  • The assembly is then anchored to the wall using bolts.
  • If, on the other hand, a lamp is to be incorporated into a wall made of perforated bricks or thermo-insulating and/or sound-absorbing blocks, a recess is made in the wall having a volume substantially equal to that of the assembly.
  • The assembly is then positioned in the recess and fixed to the adjacent bricks or blocks by means of cement.
  • In all cases, the lamp is fully incorporated in the cladding or in the wall and the only visible part of it is the light emission cavity, with the outlet opening perfectly aligned with the outer surface of the finishing layer. The wall is perfectly continuous even at the monobloc panel and there is no trace of any joint.
  • The assembly is pre-assembled, transported to the construction site and inserted as a single block in the recess made in the wall.
  • In the case of an insulation layer made of polystyrene panels, the assembly is made in such a way as to form a polystyrene panel that is usable instead of a traditional panel.
  • To the embodiments of the assembly and the method according to the invention, one skilled in the art may, to satisfy contingent needs, make modifications, adaptations and substitutions of some elements with others that are functionally equivalent, without departing from the scope of the following claims. Each of the features described as belonging to a possible embodiment may be implemented independently from the other described embodiments.
