Description

Car seat element and seat equipped with such an element. The present invention relates to a car seat element and a seat equipped with such an element. In particular, it relates to an element that can be a folder or a seat used especially in the context of seats with removable covers. The removable seats comprise, in a known manner, parts of extractable covers covering a foam cushion which may or may not be covered with a cap. These covers are removed from the seat to allow their cleaning more often. An example of extractable covers is disclosed in US 2627303. However, in some uses of the extractable covers, it may also be necessary to proceed not only to replace the cover, but also to change the padding, in particular to perform the replacement of the lateral beads, which may concern for example a use in a professional setting such as an agent making deliveries, involving numerous entries and exits of the vehicle made during his activity, and thus putting severe strain on the lateral restraints seat, in particular the lateral seat supports. Indeed, the many entries and exits of the vehicle cause premature wear 20 and targeted seat beads. This wear usually consists of a slump of the lateral support placed near the exit door of the vehicle. After a while, it becomes necessary to replace the seat. However, this replacement is expensive and it is necessary to find cheaper solutions that make it possible to avoid the complete replacement of the seat. In order to avoid a total replacement of the seat, it would be desirable to carry out a targeted replacement of the lateral restraints during a seat releasing operation. However, this partial replacement, targeted, is problematic, particularly by its difficulty of realization related to the monoblock form of padding. The invention facilitates this kind of operation by providing an automotive seat element comprising a seat cover covering a seat pad disposed on a seat structure of automobile seat to which the seat cap is maintained, said cap comprising two cap portions, a lateral cap portion and a removable central cap portion joined together by a zipper, said seat member being characterized by comprising a padding provided with a central padlock and padlock medallion. less lateral support padding separate from the central padlocking medallion, said lateral support being removable and said padlock central medallion comprising a holding surface disposed substantially vertically against which is placed in abutment a side face of the removable lateral support foam. The vertical holding surface of the central padding medallion advantageously allows the support of the lateral support, which makes it possible to firmly hold the lateral support to the central padlock medallion. Fixing the support is then reinforced by closing the removable cap to the side cap. The separate lateral support provided, removable from the outset and simply retained by its support along the holding surface allows both to ensure comfort side support and also facilitates its extraction for the purpose of renewal, during a removal operation for example. Its release and subsequent replacement is thus advantageously greatly facilitated. Furthermore, the user can advantageously choose to place geometrically identical side supports, but of different hardness, adapted for example to its comfort. In preferred embodiments of the invention, use is additionally made to one and / or the other of the following arrangements taken singly or in combination: - The seat element comprises a padding with a holding surface provided with hooking means for cooperating with complementary hooking means arranged on the lateral side holding side of removable foam. - The seat element comprises a padding provided with a holding surface with a recess bounded by two limiting surfaces, at least one of the two limiting surfaces being provided with hooking means to allow the hooking of the removable central portion of the cap. - The seat member comprises a limiting surface perpendicular to the holding surface, said surface being provided with attachment means. - The seat member comprises a padding which means for hooking the limiting surface and the holding surface are carried by a single piece overmolded in the padding. - The padding comprises a main padding portion having a holding surface extending by a low peripheral portion having a contact surface with the concave shaped foam member. - The lateral maintenance of foam has the shape of a crown portion. - The side supports of foam are covered with an envelope.

Finally, the invention also relates to a motor vehicle seat comprising a seat element incorporating any of the preceding features. Other characteristics and advantages of the invention will become apparent during the following description of several of its embodiments. , given by way of non-limiting examples, with reference to the accompanying drawings. In the drawings: FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a seat comprising a seat element according to the invention; FIG. 2 is a partial perspective view from above of a seat seat element according to the invention; FIG. 3 is a sectional view according to AN of FIG. 2 of a seat seat element according to the invention. In the context of the present application, the terms "front", "rear", "left", " right "are understood by reference to a standard reference mark of motor vehicles comprising a first longitudinal axis X, horizontal and oriented from the rear to the front, a transverse axis Y and a vertical axis Z directed from the bottom upwards, with a seat disposed in the vehicle, the seat back being in the use position. Moreover, in the different figures, the same references designate identical or similar elements. Figure 1 is a perspective view of a removable seat. The seat 10 comprises a seat element 1 and a back element 5. The seat element 1 is composed of a seat frame 4 on which is positioned a seat cushion covered by a seat cap 2 connected to seat structure and padding. The cap 2 comprises at least two parts connected by a zipper, a first lateral portion 21 covering the padding laterally, on its periphery and a central portion 22 covering the upper part of the padding on which rests the occupant of the seat. The central part is also called medallion of the seat.

The zipper is disposed at the intersection between the lateral faces and the upper face of the padding, it comprises two complementary elements each arranged on the piece of associated complementary cap. The lateral cap is fixed to the structure and padding by fasteners known per se, generally arranged at the end of the cap, in contact with the padding. The central cap portion covers the central portion of the padding, it is held in position firstly by its attachment to the side cap. Additional fasteners may be provided to bind the latter in a complementary manner to the padding in the center of the seat. These additional fasteners can be made for example by means of self-gripping elements positioned in grooves padding. As seen in more detail in FIG. 2, the padding comprises at least two parts, a main part, called central padding medallion and at least one distinct lateral part of the central medallion: a lateral support of removable padding 31. This element Lateral padding is located on the outskirts of padding, on one side of the padding. In our example, it is located on the side of the vehicle door.

The lateral retention of removable padding 32 has a substantially ring-shaped portion volume as shown in Figure 2. It comprises a holding surface 33 arranged substantially vertically against which is placed in abutment a lateral face 31L of the lateral retention of removable foam 31 The combination of the support of the lateral support of removable foam and the maintenance achieved by the zipper makes it possible to ensure a solid attachment of the removable element inside the seat. The vertical holding surface 33 may or may not be provided with hooking means 34 intended to cooperate with complementary fastening means 35 disposed on the lateral face 31L of the lateral holding of removable foam 31. These fastening means are, for example made by elements, or inserts overmolded in the padding, placed before the molding operation in the mold and secured to the padding during the production thereof. They are for example made of nonwoven inserts on which are hooked self-gripping hooks. The self-gripping hooks cooperate with complementary elements placed on the lateral support of removable foam. The additional hooking elements can be carried either by a cover or envelope covering the entirety of the removable lateral support, or overmolded in the cushion of the lateral support of removable foam in the case where it is not covered by an envelope . As can be seen in FIG. 3, a recess 36 delimited by two limiting surfaces 37A, 37B can be made in the holding surface. This recess is intended to facilitate the attachment of the removable cap on the padding. In the embodiment described, the recess is framed by two limiting surfaces 37A, 37B. These are substantially perpendicular to one another, with one of the limiting surfaces perpendicular to the holding surface. The limiting surface 37B perpendicular to the holding surface is provided with hooking means 38 to allow attachment of the removable central portion of the cap. In a particular embodiment shown in FIG. 3, the insert may also comprise two attachment surfaces, one to allow attachment of the lateral support, the other to allow attachment of the upper portion of the cap. removable. The two hooking surfaces are substantially perpendicular and form a quilting corner. This arrangement advantageously allows a single piece 38, an insert for example, carries the fastening means of the limiting surface and the holding surface, which provides a saving of room and helps to strengthen the maintenance. This piece is placed in the mold of the padding during the manufacture of padding and is linked to the latter through the molding operation.

In a particular embodiment shown in Figure 3, the padding comprises a main padding portion having a holding surface extending by a lower peripheral portion 40 having a contact surface 39 with the foam member 31 of concave shape. The lower peripheral portion 40 reinforces the anchoring of the removable lateral support in the padding. The removable lateral support has the shape substantially of a crown portion. The invention, described here for a seat member constituted by a seat seat, also relates to the seat backs, for example for the particular wear of the side back supports in the case for example of police vehicles with repeated friction occupant weapons on the lateral back restraints, causing premature deterioration of the lateral restraints. The invention is thus not limited to the embodiment described.
