Prefabricated element

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The invention relates to a prefabricated element for placement in a wet room, such as a sanitary room, a kitchen or a utility room. In particular, the invention relates on the one hand to a floor element for forming a water-retaining layer in at least a part of a floor in. a wet room and, on the other hand, an element for forming a washbasin 10 or work table, such as a countertop, in the wet room.

U.S. Patent No. 4,557,004 describes a water-tight prefabricated element with an inner surface that is tileable. The element can be placed on the floor of a bathroom to form a shower tray. The prefabricated shower element according to US 4,557,004 is typically provided with a drain opening which is placed in the middle of the element. The bottom walls of the shower element are placed at a slope to this drain opening.

20 A trend appears to have recently been introduced to provide floors with ceramic or natural stone tiles with large dimensions. When placing such 1031013 I »2 tiles in a shower element according to US 4,557,004 it is necessary, among other things, to cut the tiles diagonally and / or to lay them in pattern in order to obtain a slope to the center of the shower element . On the one hand the tiling of the known shower element is laborious as a result, on the other hand the extra joints in the tile floor disturb the aesthetic appearance of the shower.

An object of the invention is to improve on this.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

According to a first aspect the invention provides for this purpose a prefabricated element comprising a water-retaining leaf and a drain gutter with a bottom wall and upright side walls, wherein the drain gutter is provided with a drain opening for connection to a drain pipe, and wherein the water-retaining sheet and the drain gutter is formed as a whole.

Because the prefabricated element according to the invention comprises a drain gutter, only a slope running transversely to the gutter and running in the direction of the gutter is required. Such a slope in one direction can also be realized easily and quickly with large tiles and with natural stone slabs.

For use in a floor of a wet room in a building, the prefabricated element is provided with a water-retaining sheet that can be applied to, in or under the finishing floor of the wet room to obtain a water-retaining and / or vapor-repellent layer, which can prevent water penetration to the underlying construction floor. Because the drain gutter and the water retaining leaf are formed as a whole, an adequate seal between the water retaining leaf and the drain gutter 35 is obtained.

A further advantage of the prefabricated element according to the invention is that it is not necessary to arrange a passage with seals for the discharge pipe in the water-retaining sheet as described in U.S. Pat. No. 6,014,780 during placement of the element. This is because the provision of a lead-through 5 with seals has the drawbacks that the fitting is labor-intensive, requires skill and takes a lot of time, and that such a lead-through with seals can form a source of leakage.

Although the prefabricated element is initially intended for placement in the floor in a wet room in a building, for example for manufacturing a shower location in a bathroom, the inventor has realized that the device according to the invention is suitable for many further applications and is advantageous.

For example, the water-retaining top can also be arranged as a top of a sink, counter top or work table. By placing the discharge gutter along the rear side of the blade, that is to say on a side remote from a user, only a slope running transversely to the gutter and towards the gutter is required. A slope in one direction can easily be realized with a water-retaining leaf, such as, for example, a natural stone leaf, through which substantially the entire leaf or a part thereof can drain in a natural way in the direction of the gutter.

In a simple embodiment, the water-retaining leaf and the drainage gutter are made of the same material. On the one hand, the prefabricated element according to the invention is therefore easy to produce, for example in one work step. On the other hand, an aesthetically attractive element can hereby be obtained, in particular for use as an element for a washbasin, counter top or work table.

In one embodiment, the water-retaining leaf 35 adjoins the sides of the upright side walls of the drainage channel remote from the bottom wall. In use, the drain gutter lies substantially below the water-retaining leaf, wherein the drain gutter forms a collection tray for liquid. The liquid on the water retaining sheet can flow over this sheet in the drain gutter, and can be discharged via the drain opening of the drain gutter.

In one embodiment, the prefabricated element comprises a load-bearing structure for supporting the water-retaining sheet at a distance above a floor from the wet room. Such a load-bearing structure can comprise a number of supporting elements which are placed on that side of the water-retaining sheet which faces the floor when placing the prefabricated element. The bearing structure is particularly advantageous if drainage channel extends below the surface of the water-retaining leaf.

In one embodiment, the height of the supporting structure is substantially equal to or greater than a height of the upright side walls of the drain gutter. As a result, the prefabricated element with the bearing construction can be placed directly on a substrate without a recess having to be present in the substrate or having to be provided for accommodating the drainage channel therein.

In an advantageous embodiment, the bearing structure and / or the supporting elements are integrally formed with the water-retaining sheet, whereby the prefabricated element with bearing structure can be placed as a whole.

In one embodiment, the water-retaining sheet and / or the supporting structure forms a substantially dimensionally stable or solid body for providing a work surface, for example for a washbasin, counter top or work table, or for providing a support surface, for example for supporting supporting one or more people in a shower.

In a further embodiment, in particular for placement in the floor in a wet room in a building, the bottom wall of the gutter is placed substantially in the plane of the water-retaining sheet. When this embodiment is placed, the water-retaining sheet is placed on the construction floor or finishing floor, whereafter a filling material, such as, for example, a special bed, is applied to the water-retaining sheet. The filling material is placed in such a way that it provides a load-bearing construction for ceramic or natural stone tiles installed on or in the filling material, and that this tile floor drains to the drainage gutter.

In particular for placement in the floor, as described above, in which the water-retaining leaf itself does not have to form a work or supporting surface, at least the water-retaining leaf can substantially be made of. be made of a flexible material.

In an embodiment, at least a part of the circumference of the water-retaining sheet comprises an upright edge, the raised edge extending from the plane of the water-retaining sheet. In one embodiment, the raised edge is placed substantially perpendicular to the plane of the water-retaining leaf. Such a raised edge 20 is mainly used for placement against a wall in the wet room; In practice, this raised edge can at least partly be covered by the wall tiles.

In one embodiment, at least a part of the circumference of the water-retaining leaf comprises a folding edge. This embodiment is particularly, but not exclusively, advantageous in combination with a water-retaining sheet of a flexible material. During the installation of the prefabricated element, the edge adjacent to a wall in the wet room can be folded up at the bottom for placement against the lower part of the wall for obtaining a water-retaining and / or vapor-retaining layer, with which water breakdown to the wall can at least largely be prevented.

In one embodiment, the drain gutter extends. substantially parallel to the upstanding and / or folding edge of the water retaining leaf. As a result, it can be achieved that the drain gutter is placed parallel to and near the wall of 1031013 6 in the wet room.

In one embodiment, the water-retaining sheet substantially comprises a folding seam along the foldable edge. In one embodiment, the water-retaining sheet has greater flexibility at least at the location of the folding seam than the folding edge and / or a part of the water-retaining sheet substantially adjacent to the folding edge. In one embodiment the folding seam comprises one or more recesses, such as for instance grooves, grooves or V-grooves, which are arranged in the water-retaining sheet and which extend substantially along the folding seam.

In one embodiment, at least one surface of the water-retaining sheet is provided with adhesion-promoting means. In one embodiment, the adhesion promoters comprise a rough or profiled surface structure. These embodiments are particularly advantageous if tiles, natural stone slabs or a filling material must be applied to the water-retaining sheet.

In one embodiment, the drainage gutter 20 extends substantially along almost an entire side of the water-retaining leaf. If the water-retaining sheet is provided with a folding edge, the drainage gutter extends substantially within this folding edge.

In an advantageous embodiment, the discharge gutter comprises a stench trap, the stench trap being placed between the upright longitudinal side walls and connecting to the discharge opening. Because the drain gutter is provided with a stench trap, a drain pipe can be connected directly to the drain opening of the drain gutter of the prefabricated element 30 according to the invention. A stench trap placed in the discharge pipe, such as a siphon, is not necessary.

In a further aspect the invention provides a water-retaining leaf with a leaf surface comprising a number of walls extending away from the leaf surface, the walls comprising two longitudinal side walls and two end side walls for forming a gutter between them.

10310 13 7

Preferably, at least the pair of longitudinal side walls are substantially parallel to, and spaced apart from, each other. On the one hand, a through-opening can be arranged between the longitudinal side walls in the water-retaining leaf, on the other, at least one of the side walls can be provided with a through-opening for connecting a drain pipe.

In one embodiment, a dimensionally stable drainage gutter 10 is placed between the longitudinal side walls of the gutter, which discharge channel is placed with its discharge opening adjacent to the opening in the gutter for connecting the discharge line to the discharge opening of the discharge gutter.

The aspects and measures described in this description and claims of the application and / or shown in the drawings of this application can, where possible, also be applied separately from each other. Those individual aspects, such as a washbasin top, a work surface or a counter top with a drain gutter, a water-retaining element with a folding edge, and other aspects, can be the subject of split-off patent applications directed thereto. This applies in particular to the measures and aspects that are described per se in the subclaims.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

A first exemplary embodiment of a prefabricated element 1 according to the invention is shown in figure 1. This prefabricated element 1 is intended as a bottom mat for placement in a wet room, and in particular for placement on. or in the floor of. a sanitary room. The element 1 comprises a water retaining sheet 2 and a drain gutter 3 which is integrally formed with the water retaining sheet 2.

The bottom mat 1 is made of a water-retaining material 1031013 9 and a vapor-proofing material. Both the water-retaining sheet 2 and the gutter 3 can be made of a flexible material.

In the exemplary embodiment as shown in Figure 1, and in detail in Figure 2, the bottom wall 33 of the gutter 3 and the water retaining leaf 2 are formed as one whole. The bottom wall 33 lies in the plane of the water retaining leaf 2.

The drain gutter 3 is provided with a drain opening 10 which can be placed in the bottom wall 33 of the drain gutter 3. In the exemplary embodiment of Figure 1, the drain opening 34 is placed in an upright side wall 31 of the drain gutter 3. The drain gutter 3 can further be provided with an odor trap 35, wherein the odor trap 35 is placed between the upright longitudinal side walls 31 in the drain gutter 3. and connects to the drain opening 34. The drain opening 34 can further be connected to a drain line 4. By placing the drain opening 34 in an upright side wall 31 of the drain gutter 3, the drain pipe 4 will be placed at least partially above the water retaining sheet 2. whereby a construction floor 5 located under the bottom mat 1 is also protected against leaks in this part of the drain line 4 and in the connection of the drain line 4 to the drain opening 34.

The prefabricated element 1 according to figure 1 is particularly suitable for manufacturing a shower location in a bathroom. A shower is usually placed near a wall of the bathroom. Hereby the drain gutter 3 is usually near this. wall. To obtain a good watertight connection with the walls of the bathroom, the water-retaining sheet 2 is provided with a foldable edge 21 at its periphery.

If at least the water retaining sheet 2 is sufficiently flexible, the circumference of the sheet 2 can be folded up at any desired location to form a watertight connection to the wall. To facilitate this unfolding, also for a water-retaining sheet 2, which is made of a rigid or rigid material, the exemplary embodiment of the bottom mat 1 is provided between the folding edge 21 and the central portion of the water-retaining sheet 2. of a folding area 22 which comprises a number of adjacent folding seams 23. The folding seams 23 extend substantially parallel to the folding edge 21 of the bottom mat 1. By means of these folding seams 23 the folding edge can easily be folded up in the direction of the arrow Q as shown in figure 2. By placing a side by side number of folding seams 23, the position where the edge 21 can be folded up is adjustable; that is, the position of the drain gutter 3 relative to the wall is adjustable and can be adjusted to the current situation.

In order to offer the trough 3 sufficient strength, in particular if the prefabricated element 1 is made of a flexible material, the upright side walls 31 can be provided with reinforcing means, such as for instance a reinforcement 32.

In an alternative embodiment, the walls 31 of the gutter 3 can also be made of a less flexible material; for example, if the bottom mat 1 is made of a rubber material, the walls of the gutter 3 could be more vulcanized than the material of the water-retaining sheet 2. As a result, the bottom mat 1 can be made substantially of the same material and the gutter 3 is less flexible than the water retaining blade 2.

In an alternative embodiment, the walls of the trough 3 can also be made thicker than the water-retaining leaf 2. Due to this greater thickness of the walls of the trough 3, this trough also acquires a greater rigidity.

In addition, a further known form-stable drainage gutter, as described for example in Dutch patent 1025765, can be placed in the gutter 3, as shown in figure 8. Such a form-stable drainage gutter 100 can be made of plastic or metal and comprises a bottom wall 101 and upright side walls 102. The bottom wall 101 and the side walls 102 are placed adjacent to the bottom wall 3 and the side walls 31 of the trough 3, respectively. The side walls 102 are provided with anchoring flanges 103 on a side separating from the bottom wall 101. A cover grille 104 is furthermore arranged in the drain gutter 100. The top side of this cover grille 104 is placed substantially in the plane of the tile floor, as shown in figure 8, so that a substantially continuous surface is formed. To this end, the cover grille 104 can be provided with side walls 105 which in this example rest on the bottom wall 101 of the drain gutter 101.

Figure 3 shows the bottom mat 1 of Figure 1, now a detail thereof, which is placed in a floor of a wet room 6. The water-retaining sheet 2 is placed on a construction floor 5 with the folding edge 21 folded up against the wall 7 of the wet space has been placed by folding over the folding edge 21 along one of the folding seams 23 in the fold-over area 22.

Optionally, the water-retaining sheet 2 can be wholly or partially glued to the construction floor 5 and / or the wall 7. In order to provide the drainage trough 3 with sufficient rigidity, in the embodiment as shown in figure 3 a frame 35 is arranged which is substantially placed near a side of the upright side walls 31 deviating from the bottom wall 33. Preferably the upright walls 31 are fixed on the frame 35.

After placing the water retaining sheet 2 on the construction floor 5, it is then possible. the drain line 4 is placed and connected, as shown in figure 1. Next, a filler layer, in particular a finishing or special-purpose layer 8, is provided on top of the water-retaining sheet 2. The filling layer 8 is arranged such that the top side of the frame 35 is substantially flush with the top side of the filling layer 8. This filling layer is also 10 3 10 13 12.

8 is preferably placed on a slope so that the surface of this layer will drain in the direction of the drain gutter 3. Subsequently, a tile floor 9 can be applied on top of this layer 8, and the wall 7 can be provided with wall tiles 5 lp. Finally, a cover grid 36 can be placed on top of the drain gutter 3 which is provided with feed-through openings to allow the water to flow from the tile floor 9 into the drain gutter 3.

Figure 4 shows a second pre-healing embodiment of a prefabricated element 41 according to the invention. The prefabricated element 41 comprises a water-retaining leaf 42 and a drain gutter 43. This exemplary embodiment is also intended in particular for placement on the floor of a wet room, for example at the location of a shower location in a bathroom.

The water-retaining leaf 42 in this exemplary embodiment is formed as a rigid body for supporting one or more people on the prefabricated element 41. As shown in Fig. 4B, the drain gutter 43 is positioned such that the water-retaining leaf 42 connects to the sides of the longitudinal side walls 45 extending away from the bottom wall 44. Thus, the drain gutter 34 projects below the plane of the water-retaining leaf 42.

As a support, the prefabricated element 41 is provided with a support structure 46 with which the self-supporting water-retaining sheet 42 can rest on a subfloor. The support elements 46 are substantially of the same height h as the drain gutter 43. As a result, the drain gutter 43 will also be supported on the subfloor. It is noted here that in this exemplary embodiment a connecting line will be placed under the water-retaining leaf 42.

The load-bearing structure as formed by the supporting elements 46 is designed such that the water-retaining leaf 42, if the device 41 is placed on a substantially flat surface, will drain in the direction of the drain gutter 43.

1031013 13

A side 48 of the water-retaining sheet 42 remote from the supporting elements 46 can on the one hand be provided with a finishing layer which thus forms the floor of, for example, a shower.

On the other hand, this side 48 can comprise a rough or profiled surface structure. On the one hand, such a rough or profiled surface structure can serve as an anti-slip device to prevent slipping in the shower device. On the other hand, if the water-retaining sheet 42 is provided with a tiled floor on its upper side, such a rough or profiled surface structure can enhance the adhesion between the tiles and the water-retaining sheet 42.

After placing the prefabricated element 41, as shown in Figure 4, on a construction floor, the top of the water-retaining sheet 42 can thus be provided with a tiled floor. Finally, the drain gutter 43 can be provided with a cover grid 47 which can be placed such that the top side of the grid 47 is substantially in the same plane as the top side of the tiled floor on the water-retaining sheet 42.

further exemplary embodiments show a number of prefabricated elements that are used as a work surface or work table, for example for use as a washbasin, sink and / or countertop. Figures 5A, 6A, 7A, 7B and 7C show the perspective views of a number of exemplary embodiments of such a prefabricated element 51, 61, 71, 81 and 91.
