Description

SPECIFICATION A mounting plate for the suspension of tools, containers, appliances or similar The invention is concerned with a mounting plate for the suspension of tools, containers, appliances or similar, on whose front side a multitude of sectional grooves running crosswise are arranged, with a cross-section which widens inwards for the accomodation of holing elements for the objects to be suspended.

Such a mounting plate is known from CH-A 600 828, in which it has already been suggested making the plate by extruding a section of a suitably textured foam material, smooth surface covering, with the exception of the longitudinal ends which are cut off.

Depending on the desired height of the mounting plate, plate sections are required in varying widths and for greater heights two or more individual plates must even be arranged above one another, which requires special groove and key connections for the mutual alignment and prevention of unavoidably differing distortions, which are added to by disturbing separation joints. When extruding hardening foam plastic which as so-called integral foam gives a kind of sandwich st'ucture with a hard outer skin, additional particular problems arise with increasing sectional width, which are difficult to master in spite of all of the plastic processor's experience and which lead, apart from scrap, frequently to complaints on the part of the recipient due to failure to maintain dimensions of the groove sections.The high costs caused by this are increased still further by the fact that many varying sectional widths have to be made and maintained available, which is also disadvantageous for other materials.

It is, therefore, the aim of the invention to create a mounting plate of the type quoted initially which can be made simply and cheaply in particular out of hardened foam plastic in the varying sectional widths for any desired plate height, with reliable maintenance of dimensions.

In accordance with the invention this aim is reached in that the mounting plate consists of at least two plate elements arranged above one another which are interconnected to one unit by interlocking conjugation fit sections on their longitudinal edges.

By the invention a modular system is created which permits the construction of mounting plates to any desired height with a single relatively narrow selectable and thus also unproblematical manufacturable sectional width by extrusion of hard foam plastic, the mounting plates being firmly connectable with one another at once in vertical direction as well as vertically to the plate surface.

The invention is of particular advantage for the extrusion of plate elements made of hardenable foam plastic. It can also be used, however, successfully on other materials including metal, such as extruded aluminium in particular, as well as on fiber material boards with machined surface clad ding.

In accordance with a first characteristic for the advantageous design of the invention the conjuga tion fit sections originate from the inside of a groove section and run through the plate area con necting onto the next groove section of the one part of the plate up to the rear side of the plate, preventing visibility of the separation material cross-section is available for the formation of ap propriate conjugation fit sections.

Various possibilities exist for the formation of the conjugation fit sections. Examples of this are the known dove-tail section as well as a circular section which is accepted by a circular-shaped hol low section with mo'e than 180" circumferential extension. Such conjugation fit sections can, however, be brought into engagement by the plate elements sliding into one another in longitudinal direction which may lead to difficulties, particularly with larger plate lengths due to the friction incurred thereby.

In accordance with a design characteristic of the invention the conjugation fit sections are thus designed for practical purposes to be so formed that they engage and disengage by swivelling.

In order to permit a pre-assembly of the mounting plate with such conjugation fit sections which swivel into each other, for example in a lying position without the danger of disengagement when subsequently erected, the section's edges can be smeared with a glue before being broug'ht into engagement, which then joins them together permanently in the engagement position. However, frequently the possibility of later dismantlement is desired, for example for re-assembly or transportation to another Iccation for erection. This wish is accounted for by another characteristic of the invention in that the conjugation fit sections have elements which engage elastically with one another when swivelled into the engagement position, which are formed for practical purpose of at least a protrusion and a recess accomodating it when swivelled into the engagement position.The protrusions and recesses can be arranged as individual bosses or depressiops with a certain sub-division on the longitudinal edges of the plate elements, or which extend along the whole length of the edge as strips or slots. In both cases they are to be so designed that they engage with each other with the assistance of the plate material's own elasticity and which in reverse can only be separated using a specially applied force without danger or destruction.

When making the plate elements out of metal such as aluminium in particular, the swivelling capability of the plate elements for engagement and disengagement can be obtained to advantage in that the one conjugation fit section has a arcshaped gudgeon component and the other an open dish component appropriate to it and both sections have additionally hook sections which engage with one another when the gudgeon component is swivelled into the dish component. Thereby the arc-shaped component of the one conjugation fit section has a hollow design and is slotted at a point on the circumference, which offers the particular advantage that holes for the insertion of fixing screws for covering sections are created on the head ends of the plates.

Another characterisitic of the invention foresees that the uppermost and the lowest plate element of the mounting plate when joined together are designed as a border element with only one longitudinal edge fitted with a conjugation fit section, whilst the other longitudinal edges have a normal border section. Thus the modular system is expanded by two additional elements, which permit a plate border of the finished mounting plate on the upper and lower longitudinal edge.

Due to the above mentioned connection of the conjugation fit sections to one groove section each of the mounting plate, the plate elements form groove sections which widen inwards on the longitudinal edges of the desired shape also with precisely the desired dimensions, when in a joined state. The plate elements arranged between the border elements can then have further such groove sections with the same sub-division between their longitudinal edges with the conjugation fit sections.

For special applications at least one of the plate elements arranged between the border elements can be designed grooveless between the iongitudinal edges with the conjugation fit sections and instead of this have recesses running longitudinally on the rear side for the accomodation of grouped cable lines or similar, running horizontally, which for example are to be attsached to a wall, which is to be covered by the mounting plate.

The invention is described in more detail below using on of the preferable examples illustrated in the drawing. They show: Figure 1 the vertical section through a mounting plate, which consists of several plate elements made of foam plastic which hardens after extrusion, arranged above one another and with their longitudinal edges interlocking in conjugation fit, Figure 2 on a larger scale the partially broken away vertical section through one of the three central plate elements in figure 1, whereby the beginning of the adjacent plate elements are also indicated, Figure 3 a central plate element illustrated in perspective, Figure 4 the illustration in perspective of a modified design form of a central plate element, Figure 5 a vertical section similar to figure 2 with a special design of the conjugation fit sections on a mounting plate whose plate elements consist df extruded aluminium sections.

A mounting plate is designated by lo in figure 1 in its entirety which has a multitude groove section 14 widening inwards in T-form on its front side 12.

These groove sections 14 serve as accomodation for holging elements such as for example hooks 16, which engage in two consecutive T-groove sections 14 with their shafts 18' and 18". The holding elements can also be formed of boxes or other objects instead of hooks, which are fitted with appropriate shafts for insertion in the T-groove sections, or of holders for finished packaging.

The mounting plate 10 is comprised of five plate elements in the example, of which the three center ones, which are marked with 20, are designed identically and on whose longitudinal edges sections described below in more detail are fitted for the conjugation fit engagement with the adjacent plate elements. In comparison the uppermost plate element 22 has such a conjugation fit section only on its lower longitudinal edge 26, whilst the two other longitudinal edges 26, 28 are designed flat and right-angled to the plate surface.

As can be clearly seen in figure 2, the upper conjugation fit section 32 of the central plate elementss 20 as also of the bottom plate element 24 has the shape of a bent hook which starts on the extended base 34 of the groove section 14 formed between the plate elements butting onto one another and which is accomodated by an appropriate take-up 36 at the bottom end of the section of the plate element located above it. The take-up 36 is lo,cated in the area 38 of the plate element 20 adjacent to the next T-groove section 14, which has the full wall thickness of the mounting plate 10 and thus offers a sufficiently large cross-section for the formation of a stable conjugation connection.

The hook section 32 is limited on its external side and on its internal side by arc-shaped sections 40, 42, which have a common curvature center point 44. The arc-shaped sections 40, 42 are connected with one another on the points of their hooks by a further arc-shaped section 46 and on the outer arc-shaped section 40 a straight section 48 is connected, which runs at an obtuse angle to the plate surface, this section ending with a short bend on the rear side of the plate 50.

The take-up 36 has an appropriate counter-section whereby in addition the section pertaining to the arc-shaped section 42 is continued beyond the vertical and runs via an oblique section 52 to the upper limit of the T-groove section.

Due to the design of the conjugation fit sections described above, it is possible to place the plate element 20 marked with sectional shading in a position tipped to the right onto the next lower plate illustrated only by the silhouette of its hook section and to bring it into the aspired conjugation fit engagement by swivelling into the vertical position, in which a boss section 54 engages onto the arcshaped hook section 40 in an appropriate recess 56 in the hook take-up 36 of the other plate element.

This engagement can be separable or inseparable, the boss sections 54 and the recess 56 of the plate element 20 illustrated as shaded in figure 2, are shaped in such a way that separation cannot take place without destruction after engagement. In comparison the boss sections 54' and the recess 56' at the upper end of the plate element 20 illustrated as shaded in figure 2 are so shaped that separation is possible with an additional force. In both cases a pre-assembly of the mounting plate is made possible, for example in a lying position without the elements separating from one another of their own accord when the pre-assembled mounting plate is erected.

On the rear side 50 of the central plate element in the same manner as known from the CH-PS 600 828 longitudinally running trapezoidal shaped grooves can be inset in order to save material and avoid disadvantageous piling up of material, particularly when extruding, at these points.

The arrangement of the hook 32 in the example on the extended base 34 of the groove section 14 formed between the plate elements butting onto each other makes a particularly advantageous screwing on of the plate elements possible above the actual base of the groove section with the aid of the screw holes 58, indicated in figure 2 by a broken line, which are covered over when the next higher plate element is attached like the plate element 20 drawn in as shaded in figure 2.

Whilst figure 3 shows a plate element 10 illustrated in perspective with further groove sections between the longitudinal edges in accordance with the illustration in figure 1 and 2, a modified design 20' of such a plate element is represented in figure 4 which has no further T-groove sections between its longitudinal edges which each forms a T-groove section together with the adjacent plate elements, but which is instead fitted with recesses 59 running longitudinally for the accomodation of grouped cable lines or similar. When the mounting plates are manufactured all central plate elements can be formed optionally of plate elements 20' modified in this manner. It is of course just as possible to use only one or less additional such plate elements in the mounting plate and bring the remaining plate elements into play in the version shown in figure 1 through 3.

Figure 5 shows the partially. broken away vertical section through a plate element 60, which has been extruded from aluminium with a far smaller wall thickness than for the plate elements described previously. The plate element contains at least one T-groove section 62 and in conjunction with the plate elements adjoining above and below, which are indicated in figure 6 shaded, forms two further such T-sections 62 which are limited above and on the base of the wall components 64, 66 on the bottom end of the plate element located above it and below by a wall section 68 of the plate element located below it.The plate elements 60 are fitted on the other hand with conjugation fit sections 70, 72 at the top and bottom ends, which can, similarly to the plate elements in accordance with figures 1 through 4, be swivelled in and out of engagement, whereby the swivelling, however, takes place in the reverse direction and before being attached to the wall.

The lower conjugation fitting section 70 has a tongue 76 with a hook 78 as well as a hollow arc section 80 which is slotted at 82 on an extension 74 of the wall component 66, which forms the base of the T-groove section 62. The upper conjugation fitting section 72 consists on the contrary of a wall 84 with a pitch circle shaped open dish 86 for the accomodation of the circular section 80 as well as a hook 88, attached to the outside of the end of the bottom groove termination wall 68, the hook engaging with hook 78 at the end of the swivelling in movement of the plate elements.

With this section too a secure conjugation fit is obtained between the plate elements, which unites the plate elements to a mounting plate of any desired height.
