Abstract

Skirting profile (1) for transition between wall (10) and preferably floating floors (20). The skirting profile (1) includes a channel (2), which channel (2) is intended for hiding and holding cables and the like in place. The channel (2) extends parallel to the skirting profile (1) and is open on the upper side of the skirting profile (1) as well as backwards to the wall (10). A cheek (5) is formed as an extension upwards of the front side (3), between which check (5) the channel (2) is formed. The front side (3) is provided with a thin decorative and resilient laminate (7) which extends from the lower edge of the front side (3) to and beyond the rounded edge (6) of the cheek (5) to or beyond a vertical surface being a tangent of the rear side (4). Cables and the like can be placed in the channel (2) of a skirting profile (1) mounted on a wall (10) by bending the resilient decorative laminate (7) out from the wall (10) whereby the cable and the like can be inserted whereby the laminate (7) can flex hack and again connect with the wall (10).

Description

  • The present invention relates to a skirting profile with a channel for cables. The skirting profile is intended to be placed between floor and wall. [0001]
  • Different types of skirting profiles which also holds and guides cables and cords is a pretty common item nowadays. These do, however, mostly contain open cavities in which dust easily is collected. There are different solutions were covering profiles are intended to be snapped into the skirting profile to cover the openings were the cables are intended to be arranged. Such separate profiles will, however, make the product more costly and will also cause different types of load and material problems which causes that more exclusive and expensive materials will have to be used in order to get a working solution. Such snapping profiles will also lead to the forming of chinks, gaps and grooves in which dust and dirt can be collected, although to a smaller extent. [0002]
  • It has through the present invention been made possible to solve the above mentioned problems whereby a simplified embodiment of a skirting profile with a cable channel has been achieved. Accordingly, the invention relates to a skirting profile for the transition between wall and preferably floating floors. The skirting profile comprises a channel, which channel is intended to hide and hold cables and the like in place. The invention is characterised in that the skirting profile is provided with a front side and a rear side, that the channel extends parallel to the skirting profile and is open to the upper side of the skirting profile and rearwards towards the and the wall. A cheek is formed as an extension upwards of the front side, between which cheek the channel is formed. The upper edge of the cheek is rounded of. The front side is provided with a thin decorative and resilient laminate which extends from the lower edge of the front side upwards and beyond the rounded edge of the cheek to, or beyond a vertical surface being a tangent to the rear side. Cables and the like can hereby be placed in the channel of a skirting profile mounted on a wall by bending the laminate out from the wall whereby cables and the like can be inserted whereupon the laminate can flex back and again connect with the wall. [0003]
  • The resilient decorative laminate is suitably constituted of at least one decorative sheet, preferably of α-cellulose impregnated with melamine-formaldehyde resin and a underlying support sheet of a thermoplastic material, preferably a polyolefin. The resilient decorative laminate suitably includes one or more so-called overlay sheets of α-cellulose impregnated with melamine-formaldehyde resin which are placed in front of the decorative sheet. The resilient decorative laminate suitable has a wear resistance measured as IP>3000 turns.[0004]
  • The invention is further illustrated through an enclosed drawing showing an embodiment of the invention.[0005]
  • The FIGURE shows in cross-section a skirting profile [0006] 1 according to the present invention. The skirting profile 1 is intended to be used in the transition between wall 10 and, preferably floating, floor 20. The skirting profile 1 comprises a channel 2, which is intended to hide and hold cables and the like in place. The skirting profile 1 is provided with a front side 3 and a rear side 4. The channel 2 extends parallel to the skirting profile 1 and is open on the top of the skirting profile 1 as well as backwards to the wall 10. A cheek 5 is formed as an extension upwards of the front side 3, behind which cheek 5 the channel 2 is formed. The upper edge 6 of the channel 5 is rounded of. The front side 3 is provided with a thin decorative and resilient laminate 7 which extends from the lower edge of the front side 3 upwards above and beyond the rounded edge 6 of the cheek 5 to, or beyond, a vertical surface being a tangent of the rear side 4. Cables and the like can hereby be placed in the channel 2 of a skirting profile 1 mounted on a wall by bending the resilient decorative laminate 7 out from the wall 10 whereby the cable and the like can be inserted whereby the laminate 7 can flex back and again connect with the wall 10.
  • The resilient decorative laminate is constituted of at least one decorative sheet, preferably of α-cellulose impregnated with melamine-formaldehyde resin and a underlying support sheet of a thermoplastic material, preferably a polyolefin. The laminate also includes one or more so-called overlay sheets of α-cellulose impregnated with melamine-formaldehyde resin which are placed in front of the decorative sheet. The laminate has a wear resistance measured as IP>3000 turns. [0007]
  • The invention is not limited by the embodiments shown since these can be varied in different ways within scope of the invention. [0008]
