Description

MEANS OF ASSEMBLY FOR FLOOR PANELS, WALL OR CEILING

  The present invention belongs to the fields of building, sports facility or house coatings and more particularly to the means for fixing and / or maintaining their assembly system. A coating is intended to coat an interior and exterior surface of a building such as a floor, wall or ceiling. For example, for flooring, parquet or other laminate or conventional coatings are formed of identical wood strips or panels.

The installation of this type of cladding panels is carried out by interlocking male and female coupling systems on each of the wood strips such as grooves and tongues or any other coupling device and an attachment by means of glue. system 20 of non-return clipping, or nails. The major problem of these assembly systems is the obligation to fix the grooves and tongues or other known type of assembly means so that they remain permanently secured. These known nib blades have some major disadvantages such as the application of the glue and in particular the quantity and its arrangement. The conditioning and the viscosity of the glue are also to be taken into consideration.

According to European Patent No. EP 1 024 234, a floor covering composed of hard floor panels that do not require glue is disclosed. Indeed, the panels are assembled by means of mechanical system with profiled groove and tongue and where this mechanical locking system is made in one piece with the floor panel. These known clip system floor panels facilitate the operation of laying the liner and do not require additional fastening means. However partial or total deterioration of the clip system remains possible during installation and removal. In addition, their manufacturing process in one piece of panels, including the profiled tongues and grooves specifically for fixing, is quite complicated to achieve at the industrial level, particularly concerning tools, adjustments, machining and control machines. dimensional, and proves expensive. In addition, these types of panels are difficult to install when for example, the support is not perfectly flat or is large. Similarly, depending on the nature of the material of the panels, their interlocking is not easy. The present invention overcomes the disadvantages of the prior art by providing a device allowing a simplified installation regardless of the length and nature of the coating without the need for other means of assembly. In addition, the device according to the invention proposes a simpler, faster and less expensive implementation technique. Indeed, it simplifies the process of machining and adjustment and a lower cost of tools and equipment. 2905393 3 simplify the machining and adjustment process and reduce the cost of tools and equipment. In addition, the device according to the invention makes it possible to obtain a coating that can be used several times since it can be dismantled without causing any damage. Similarly, the device according to the invention makes it possible to tolerate greater variations in humidity.

To this end, a device for holding floor, wall or ceiling panels, according to the invention, is characterized in that it consists of a set of particles, fibers or similar natural or artificial cut or crushed reported on two joined panels.

More specifically, it consists of a flock glued or pre-glued on assembly means of said joined panels. Said flock may be blown with an adhesive or binder on the area to be flocked from said coating or projected onto the area to be flocked with said coating previously coated with glue, adhesive or a binder. More specifically, said floc is made of fibers made of plastic, polyamide, polyester, acrylic, nylon, viscose, cotton, wool, or any other textile fibers. Advantageously, said floc is between 3.3 to 44 decitex, and has a fiber length of between 0.8 mm and 3 mm. zt.

The invention also relates to a flooring, ceiling or wall to which a device according to the invention is attached.

The invention will be better understood in light of the following description, relating to illustrative, and in no way exhaustive, examples of the present invention, with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which: FIG. is a schematic cross-sectional view of the edge of two cladding panels comprising the assembly means of the invention and able to cooperate; - Figures 2 and 3 are views respectively from below and from above in perspective of the two covering panels of Figure 1; - Figures 4 and 5 are enlarged perspective views of the elements of Figures 2 and 3.

The present invention relates to a novel device for assembling the constituent parts of a floor, wall or ceiling covering.

The holding device according to the invention can be associated with any type of coating such as, for example, parquet boards, paneling, carpeting, laminated linoleum-type coating or laminate coverings or any other floor, wall or ceiling covering. of known type.

FIG. 1 is a schematic cross-sectional view of the edge of two covering panels comprising the assembly means of the invention and able to cooperate. A floor 1, wall or ceiling, in the form of a 3o panel or a blade, has two faces: a so-called active face 2 decorative purpose, called siding, and a so-called passive face 3 intended to carry on a floor, wall or ceiling support. In the case of a floor as currently described, the active face is called the upper face 2 and the passive face is called the lower face 3. s Parquet is the type of coating described in the following description by way of example illustrative but is in no way limiting. The parquet strips 1 are assembled together by means of assembly 4 of a type known per se such as grooves, tongues, adapted profiles or clips consisting, for two contiguous blades, of a male element 5 and a female element 6, able to cooperate together in order to form a flat and correctly fixed coating. The male and female elements are respectively provided on the edges of two opposite sides of two parquet strips to be assembled.

More specifically, with reference to the cross-sectional view of FIG. 1, the male joining element 5 comprises, starting from the upper face 2 towards the lower face 3: a first upper flat strip 7 forming a recess in FIG. L-shaped, seen in section; a second lower flat strip 8 forming an L-shaped recess seen in section, and whose depth (in the plane of the blade) is greater than that of the upper flat strip 7; a protruding rib 9, substantially median and delimited by the respective walls of the lower and upper flat bands. The female joining element 6 comprises: a first upper cutout 10 forming an L-shaped recess, seen in section cooperating with a second intermediate cut 11 symmetrical with the upper cutout 10 forming a cavity 12; a lower flower bed 13 corresponding substantially to the length of the second lower flat strip 8 male. These types of male and female assembly elements are illustrative and in no way limiting examples. In general, the female element 6 is pre-arranged and the male element 5 is engaged. More specifically, the male and female cutouts 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 guide the rib 9 in the cavity 12. In order to fix the panels of a coating, according to the prior art, it is intended to apply a some amount of glue or adhesive on the upper flat strip 10 of the female member 6 or clipping said panels together.

According to the invention, it is intended to have a holding device 14 on a part of these female and / or male elements or on their assembly. Indeed, the holding device 14 is attached to the assembly means 4 of the panels of the coating 1 which is previously glued or glued.

This holding device 14 can be arranged in various configurations on the assembly means 4. For example, it can be arranged on the entire surface of the assembly means 4 of the coating 1.

Alternatively, the holding device 14 can be arranged on only one part of the surface of the assembly means 4 of the covering 1. The holding device 14 can also be arranged on at least part of the means of Lateral (end) 4a and longitudinal (long) assemblies 4b. Preferably, the holding device 14 is respectively disposed on the lower flat strip 8 of the male element 5 and on the lower flat plate 13 of the female element 6 of the assembly means 4 of the floorboards 1. Alternatively the holding device 14 can also be arranged at the bottom of the cavity 12 as well as at the end of the rib 9. In a complementary manner, the holding device 14 according to the invention can be arranged on lateral portions 15 of the lower faces 3, intended to come into contact with the coating 1. FIGS. 2 and 3 are views respectively from below and from above in perspective of the two covering panels of FIG. 1. The holding device 14 allows, thanks to its texture and / or its composition, to removably assemble two cladding panels such as floorboards. A first arrangement of the device according to the invention is to apply a strip or strip 14 of flock 16 to the desired parts of the assembly means 4 or edge of the covering 1 such as clips, grooves, tongues or any other locking means of known type. These two bands 14 flocked, glued or glued respectively on s assembly means 4 of two blades 1 adapted to cooperate with each other allow their maintenance without the requirement of glue or other holding means while avoiding the radial withdrawal of the blades between they after their nesting. This floc 16 is obtained by reducing fibers or particles or the like, natural or artificial into fragments by means of cutting or grinding. The fibers generally used are made of plastic, cotton, 1s of wool, or all textile fibers of known type. Two main types of floc are possible: the precise cutting flock where all the fibers are approximately equal in length and the so-called random cutting flock where the fibers are crushed thus creating a wide range of lengths. Similarly, the flock 16 may consist of straight fibers, corrugated or any possible form of known type.

Preferably, the flock 16 is precision-cut consisting of polyamide, polyester, acrylic, nylon, viscose or cotton. Advantageously, the flock 16 may be of varying thickness and density depending on the desired degree of clamping or holding.

Advantageously, this flocked strip 14 also improves the sound insulation. As a result, flocking of part or all of the lower face 3 of the coating 1 can be provided in order to acoustically isolate the whole of the coating 1. Moreover, this holding device 14 makes it possible to avoid the cracking phenomenon when used for parquet flooring, for example.

Flock 16 may have a size of 3.3 to 44 decitex. This unit corresponds to the gram weight of 10 km of wire. The length of the floc 16 fibers is between 0.8 mm and 3 mm. Preferably, the floc has fibers of length between 1.5 mm and 2.2 mm. Figures 4 and 5 are enlarged perspective views of the elements of Figures 2 and 3.

The flocking process is carried out as follows. The first step is to glue the area to flock, that is to say a part or the entire surface of the assembly means 4 of the coating 1, by means of a brush, gun or a Roller gluing machine. An adhesive, an adhesive or a binder is previously coated on the assembly means 4 of the coating 1 at the locations where it is desired to obtain a flocked strip 14.

More specifically, the adhesive used may be vinyl white glue, a mixture or a composition capable of holding together adhesively bonded materials of a type known per se. The amount of glue is a function of the configuration of the desired flocked strip. It can vary between 50 and 200g / m2. Preferably, it is intended to use an amount of about 150 g / m 2 of glue.

Then, once the choice of the floc and its cut is made, it is deposited in a hopper or any other container with an electric current so that it passes through an electrostatic field allowing the electroorientation of the fibers and therefore their positioning on the flocking area of the coating 1.

Indeed, the floc 16 thus polarized is projected uniformly, or localized, on the desired flocking zone so as to obtain a band 14 adhering to the coating 1.

Alternatively, the flock 16 may also be sprayed in admixture with an adhesive or binder. The coating 1 is moved by means of a treadmill or any other means of mechanical advancement disposed under the hopper. Simultaneously with the advancement of the assembly means 4 to flock the coating 1, the projection of the flock 16 is made vertically relative to the coating. Flocking can be done from top to bottom or from bottom to top.

The flocked zone or the flocked web 14 is then dried by hot air or by means of infrared or other drying systems of a type known per se. s Additional operations may be provided such as dusting and brushing. A second arrangement of the device according to the invention is to provide a strip or strip 14 of fibrous self-gripping material (not shown) on the desired parts of the assembly means or edge of the covering 1 such as clips, grooves, tongues or any other locking means of known type. These strips 14 bonded or pre-glued respectively on the means 15 for assembling two blades, able to cooperate with each other (in the same configurations as the first arrangement), allow the blades 1 to be held together without the need for glue or other fastening means while avoiding the radial withdrawal of the blades after their interlocking 20 This self-gripping material is a fibrous fastening system of textile fibers or other self-gripping materials of two different textures of known type, such as Velcro type allowing when they come into contact to quickly obtain a removable connection.

The composition of the pre-bonded tape with removable connection according to the invention makes it possible to make the fixing device resilient, indestructible and rot-proof.

Advantageously, the use of this device makes it possible to diversify and thus customize the configuration of a coating. Advantageously, the device according to the invention makes it possible to obtain a coating that can be used several times since it can be dismantled without causing any damage.
