Description

Improved coating for flower and plant containers
The present invention relates to an improved coating for containers of flowers and plants.

 The means currently known on the market for improving the appearance of containers of flowers and plants in vegetation: pots, planters and the like, are entirely handcrafted and require specialized personnel; therefore, their use takes time and causes significant waste, all this resulting in an increase in the cost of the product.

 To overcome the problems of the current technique, a device has been devised which is specially designed for use in flower shops or the like, and has the object of improving the aesthetic appearance of developing flower containers, such as pots, planters or the like, simultaneously ensuring a protective function, tending to preserve the surface on which the container rests from the contact of water and moisture released by this container.

 Thus, the primary function for which the coating which is the subject of this filing is designed is to provide a thin envelope for the sides and bottom of the container or floral receptacle, capable of being easily applied outside said container. container or receptacle, to enhance the aesthetic appearance, and the secondary function is to provide an element resistant to water and humidity all around the outer part of the container, planter, pot or the like.

 In accordance with what has just been said, the recommended device comprises one or more sheets of a thin film of plastic material, forming an essentially flat and water-resistant structure, the laminar structure of which can be decorated according to a drawing. arbitrary in which one or more colors intervene to enhance the visual effect.

 This laminar structure has an initial rectangular shape, then, then, it is shaped, by molding, into a three-dimensional body which takes a configuration similar to that of a tank; it is provided with a rim which folds, at an angle, to the outside and it appears, on the slopes of this rim and consequently of the laminar folding which results from the molding process, pleated projections of sheet, as spikes in the corners, which also embellish the object.

 This tray-like coating is specifically designed to adapt to floral containers in the shape of a rectangular or prismatic parallelepiped, improving its aesthetics while providing a water-resistant barrier.

 It should be emphasized that the application of the coating to the floral container does not require any particular experience on the part of the staff of the store or of the flower trade, so there is no need for specialized personnel, which has favorable repercussions. from an economic point of view.

To facilitate the explanations, this description is accompanied by a drawing board in which an embodiment has been shown which is cited by way of example
Figure 1 shows the coating device seen in side elevation, by one of its short sides
Figure 2 corresponds to a plan view from above of the coating which is the subject of the invention;
Figure 3 is another view of the coating shown in side elevation with partial section
Figure 4 shows a perspective view of the coating applied to a floral container.

 With reference to the figures, in the embodiment there is a coating generally designated by the reference 1, composed of a laminar structure 2 in which one or more flexible films of a non-porous material, preferably a plastic material, may intervene, whether or not associated with glue, transparent or opaque, and printed in different colors and designs.

 Preferably, this laminar structure initially has a rectangular shape which is then shaped, by means of an appropriate mold, into a three-dimensional body 1, adapted to the outer face of containers 3, of flowers or plants in vegetation 4.

 The application appears in FIG. 4 on which the coating 1 follows the sides and the bottom of the container 3 which contains the cultivated soil 5 carrying the flowers or the plants in vegetation.

 As will be seen in the figures, the covering 1 has a fold line 6 in contact with the four lateral faces of said coating, and the line of which defines a plane parallel to the edge and from which the laminar structure projects towards the outside, forming a continuous rim 7 which exceeds the top of the planter or pot 3, and spikes 8 appear on the tops of the rims, as a result of the laminar pleating that results from molding, these spikes helping to improve the aesthetic aspect of the whole.

 Thanks to the use of coating 1, the appearance of the container or planter 3 is enhanced, which results, among other advantages, in a significant increase in sales. On the other hand, the surface on which the container usually rests is protected from any deterioration by water, since the laminar structure 2 which constitutes the coating is absolutely impermeable to runoff water and therefore retains a certain humidity at inside the container, protecting the outside.

 Without losing its essence, the model can be produced in other forms which differ in their details from what is indicated above by way of example in the description. It can therefore be made in any shape and any size, with the most suitable materials.
