Abstract

The seat (10) has a base (11) retractable toward a raised position and comprising two parts. The parts of the base have pivot axes approximately parallel to a longitudinal axis of a vehicle such that the parts of base are approximately fixed in vertical and parallel manner at a side of the vehicle in a raised position. A retractable backrest (12) comprises a single part with a pivot axis (14) approximately parallel to a transverse axis of the vehicle. The backrest is arranged in a horizontal manner in a retracted position and located between two reinforcements (15a). An independent claim is also included for a vehicle.

Description

The invention relates to a modular seat, in particular, a modular seat of a motor vehicle. In private or commercial vehicles, it is often necessary to increase the loading surface of the vehicle or to arbitrate punctually between a passenger seat or an additional surface. Various types of foldable or retractable seats are known, which can be folded partially or completely to increase the utility volume. For example, the French patent FR 2 897 565, in the name of the applicant, describes a seat for a motor vehicle with a folding backrest and a liftable seat pivoting about a longitudinal axis of articulation. When the backrest is folded, the seat acts as an additional load area. This seat thus frees up an additional loading surface and protects the occupant against possible load movements. This seat has the disadvantage of providing imperfect side protection since the passenger side door is unprotected and can be damaged by a load movement. The invention therefore aims to provide a modular seat for positioning loads whose length is greater than the loading part of a utility vehicle and providing improved protection against lateral movements of these loads. It proposes more specifically for this purpose a modular vehicle seat with a retractable seat to a raised position and a retractable backrest, characterized in that the seat comprises a first and a second part, the first part having a first pivot axis substantially parallel to the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, the second part having a second pivot axis substantially parallel to the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, so that in the raised position, the first part and the second part of the seat are substantially vertical and parallel to the side of the vehicle. The modular seat according to the invention arranged on the passenger side in the cab of a commercial vehicle allows improved loading of long objects. In the retracted position (folded back and raised seat), the seat no longer forms an obstacle to the front of the vehicle. On the contrary, the folded backrest extends the floor of the cargo box of the utility. Space is released to the apron of the vehicle. In addition, the raised seat portions disposed on either side of the seat provides protection against lateral load movements.
Advantageously, the retractable backrest comprises a single portion comprising a third pivot axis substantially parallel to the transverse axis of the vehicle. Preferably, the first pivot axis is located near an edge of the seat, the second pivot axis being located near the opposite edge of the seat. Preferably, the seat further comprises a first frame on which is mounted, rotatable about the first axis of pivoting, the first part of the seat, and a second frame on which is mounted, rotatable about the second axis of pivoting, the second part of the seat, the first and the second armature being intended to be fixed integrally on a floor of the vehicle. Preferably, the backrest, in the retracted position, is disposed substantially horizontally and is between the first and the second armature. The invention relates to a vehicle comprising a seat according to the invention. Preferably, the modular seat is a passenger seat fixed on a first floor of the vehicle, the vehicle having a second floor located at the rear of the first floor, the seat being arranged so that the seat backrest in folded position being in the extension. from the second floor. Other features and advantages of the invention will become apparent upon examination of the following detailed description, and the accompanying drawings, in which: FIG. 1 illustrates a side view of a seat according to the invention in position d 'use ; Figure 2 illustrates a view similar to Figure 1, the seat being in the retracted position; Figure 3 illustrates a front view of a seat according to the invention in the use position; Figure 4 a view similar to Figure 3, the seat being in the retracted position. The attached drawings may not only serve to complete the invention, but also contribute to its definition, if any. The seat according to the invention can be used in any vehicle including automotive type. The invention is particularly advantageous when used in a commercial vehicle having a first floor and a second floor located at the rear of the first floor. The second floor is at a height higher than the first floor. The invention relates to a modular seat 10 for a vehicle having a seat 11 retractable to a raised position and a retractable backrest 12. The seat 11 has a first 11a and a second portion 11b. The first part 11a comprises a first pivot axis 13a substantially parallel to the longitudinal axis of the vehicle. The second portion 11b also comprises a second pivot axis 13b substantially parallel to the longitudinal axis of the vehicle. In the raised position, the first part 11a and the second part 11b of the seat are substantially vertical and parallel to the side of the vehicle. The seat comprises for example a headrest 18 mounted on the backrest 12.
The two raised parts release a space in which the file 12 can come to lodge in the folded position. Preferably, the portions of the seat are of the same dimensions and symmetrical with respect to a vertical plane. Thus in the raised position the first 11a and the second part 11b provide similar protection on both sides of the seat. One of the parts protects the door on the passenger's side while the other protects the driver from the vehicle. According to a feature of the invention, the retractable backrest 12 comprises a single portion comprising a third pivot axis 14 substantially parallel to the transverse axis of the vehicle. According to one characteristic of the invention, the modular seat 10 further comprises a first frame 15a on which is mounted, rotatable, the first portion 11a of the seat, and a second frame 15b on which is mounted, movable in rotation, the second part llb of the seat. The seat portions 11a, 11b are mounted on the frames 15a, 15b by means of hinges, not shown. The first 15a and the second armature 15b being intended to be secured integrally on a floor 16 of the vehicle. In a particular embodiment, the front face of the backrest 12 in the folded position is in the same plane as the portion of the first and the second armature 15a, 15b. Thus the back 12 in the folded position is based on the floor of the vehicle 16. According to another characteristic of the invention, the first pivot axis 13a is located near an edge of the seat, the second pivot axis 13b being located near the opposite edge of the seat 11. According to a feature of the invention, the back 12, in the retracted position, is arranged substantially horizontally and is housed between the first 15a and the second frame 15b. The width of the backrest is such that it can be housed between the two frames in the retracted position. When the first seat portion 11a (respectively the second seat portion 11b) is raised, the underside of the seat is in the extension or beyond the plane of the first frame 15a (respectively the second armature 15b) so that the parts do not constitute an obstacle when the file is folded down. When it is desired to use the cabin space to accommodate a long object by retracting the passenger seat, the first seat portion 11a is raised, pivoted about the pivot axis 13a, until the underside of the seat is in the extension of the plane of the frame 15a or beyond. The procedure is similar with the second sitting part. Of course, it is possible to raise the second seat portion 11b before the first 11a.
The backrest 12 is then rotated around the third axis 14 of pivoting. The file is then housed in the space released by the two parts assises 11a, llb raised. The folded backrest 12 is then in the extension of the floor of the loading part of the utility. The seat can recover its non-retracted position by proceeding in reverse. The invention also relates to a vehicle comprising a seat 10 according to the invention The vehicle is for example a utility vehicle comprising a first floor 16 and a second floor 17 located at the rear of the first floor 16. The second floor is at a height greater than the first floor 16. The passenger seat of the vehicle, situated next to the driver's seat, is a seat 10 according to the invention The backrest 12 of the seat 10 in the folded position is in the extension of the second floor 17.
It is thus possible to have long charges in the rear part of the vehicle. In addition, the first 11a and second 11b seat portion disposed on either side of the seat in the retracted position prevent lateral movements of the loads disposed on the backrest 12 in the folded position.
