Description

  The present invention relates to a chair in which the backrest is supported by a backrest support rod that stands up from a leg, and the seat is supported by a seat support rod that is substantially horizontal above the leg.

This type of chair is often used in a conference room or the like, in which a leg and a back support rod are formed by bending a metal pipe.
In such a conventional chair, for example, as described in Patent Documents 1 to 3, a pair of left and right backrest support rods that stand on the left and right sides of the lower portion of the backrest from the rear portion of the leg. And the lower surface of the right and left sides of the seat are supported by a seat support rod comprising a pair of left and right pipes that are substantially horizontal to the upper part of the leg.

Japanese Patent No. 4441096 Japanese Patent No. 3595714 JP 2007-202591 A

In the chairs described in Patent Documents 1 to 3, the backrest and the seat are separately attached to the backrest support seat and the seat support saddle, respectively, and the backrest is attached. The left and right sides of the lower part are supported by being fitted to a pair of left and right back support ridges that stand up from the rear of the leg, so that the back can be removed from the back support heel or vertically It is necessary to fix the backrest and the backrest support ridge with a fixing means such as a screw so as not to be displaced.
However, when fixing means such as screws are used, it is necessary to provide screw insertion holes, female screw holes, and the like in the backrest and backrest support rod, which increases the number of processing steps and the number of attachment steps of the backrest.
Moreover, since the head of the screw is exposed to the outside, the appearance of the chair is deteriorated.

  The present invention has been made in view of the above problems, and it is easy to move the backrest fitted to the backrest support rod upward without using a fixing means such as a screw and with very few man-hours. The object is to provide a chair that can be prevented.

According to the present invention, the above-mentioned problems are solved as follows.
(1) In a chair formed by fitting a backrest supporting heel standing up from a rear portion of a leg that supports a seat, and supporting the backrest by fitting a mounting hole that opens downward from above, the backrest A projecting piece projecting downward from the seat is provided at the lower end of the seat, and the lower surface of the rear end of the seat is brought into contact with the upper surface of the projecting piece so that the seat is supported on the upper portion of the leg.

With such a configuration, the upper surface of the projecting piece at the lower end of the backrest is pressed down by the lower surface of the rear end of the seat supported by the legs, so that the backrest is fitted to the backrest support ridge from above. However, there is no fear that the backrest moves upward, and therefore it is not necessary to fix the backrest using fixing means such as screws.
Further, the upward movement of the backrest can be easily prevented with a very small number of man-hours such that the lower surface of the rear end of the seat is brought into contact with the upper surface of the projecting piece at the lower end of the backrest.

(2) In the above paragraph (1), the backrest support ridges are a pair of left and right standing upright on both sides of the seat, and the backrest is provided with a downward projection at the lower end connected to both backrest support ridges. On the upper surface of the projecting piece projecting from the upper side of the left and right side portions of the left and right mounting portions, the mounting holes opening downward from the downward projecting portions provided on the left and right lower projecting portions are provided. The lower surfaces of the rear side portions are brought into contact with each other.

  With such a configuration, the backrest can be stably supported by the pair of left and right backrest support ridges, and the upper surfaces of the left and right pair of projecting pieces projecting from the lower ends of the left and right downward projections are Since it is pressed by the lower surfaces of both sides of the back of the seat, there is little risk of the backrest wobbling in the left-right direction, which stabilizes.

(3) In the above (2), the rear end of the seat is fitted between the opposing surfaces or the outer surfaces of the left and right downward projections, and the upper surfaces of the projections of the both downward projections are The lower surface of both sides of the seat is brought into contact.

  With such a configuration, the rear end portion of the seat is positioned in the front-rear and left-right directions by the left and right downward projections, so that the seat can be easily attached to the leg and the seat moves in the left-right direction. Therefore, there is no possibility that the left and right projecting pieces come into contact with the fixed positions on the lower surfaces of both side portions of the seat, and the projecting pieces are displaced and removed.

(4) In the above item (2) or (3), the upper parts of a pair of left and right rear leg rods facing the vertical direction in the leg are connected by connecting rods facing the left and right direction, A portion protruding upward from the connecting rod is a pair of left and right backrest supporting rods.

  With such a configuration, the rigidity of the rear part of the leg is increased, and the upper part of the rear leg ridge is used as a back support heel, so that the support strength of the back is increased and this is more stable.

(5) In the above item (4), the lower surfaces of the left and right downward projections on the backrest are brought into contact with the upper surfaces of both side portions of the connecting rod.

  With such a configuration, since the backrest is prevented from moving in the vertical direction, the backrest becomes more stable.

According to the present invention, since the upper surface of the projecting piece at the lower end of the backrest is pressed down by the lower surface of the rear end of the seat fixed to the leg, the backrest can be fitted only to the backrest support ridge from above. Therefore, there is no fear that the backrest moves upward, and therefore it is not necessary to fix the backrest using fixing means such as screws.
Further, the upward movement of the backrest can be easily prevented with a very small number of man-hours such that the lower surface of the rear end of the seat is brought into contact with the upper surface of the projecting piece at the lower end of the backrest.
