Abstract

Mounting straps for a barrier are provided. The barriers comprise an intersecting mesh of barrier elements and an outer edge at the perimeter of the barrier. The mounting straps are attachable to the outer edge of the barrier. The mounting straps comprise at least one finished hole and are anchorable frame elements by fastening mounting hardware through one of the mounting strap's finished holes.

Description

  • This application takes priority from U.S. provisional application 60/969,009 filed Aug. 30, 2007.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Barriers are used in many industrial and commercial applications for a variety of purposes. They are often used as barricades to cordon off areas, as safety harnesses on storage racks, etc. The barriers are assembled from barrier elements formed into a mesh or net. The barrier elements are usually straps, ropes or chains, and are made of nylon, polypropylene, cotton, or other material.
  • SUMMARY
  • Mounting straps for a barrier are provided. The barriers comprise an intersecting mesh of barrier elements and an outer edge at the perimeter of the barrier. The mounting straps are attachable to the outer edge of the barrier. The mounting straps comprise at least one finished hole and are anchorable to frame elements by fastening mounting hardware through one of the mounting strap's finished holes.
  • In embodiments in which the mounting straps have two finished holes, each mounting strap is anchorable by wrapping the mounting strap around frame elements, aligning the two finished holes to overlap, and fastening mounting hardware through both aligned finished holes. Alternatively the mounting straps could be fastened to anchoring hardware that is in turn anchored to the frame elements.
  • Those skilled in the art will realize that this invention is capable of embodiments different from those shown and described herein and that details of the devices and methods can be changed in various manners without departing from the scope of this invention. Accordingly, the drawings and descriptions are to be regarded as including such equivalent embodiments as do not depart from the spirit and scope of this invention.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Referring to the drawings, some of the reference numerals are used to designate the same or corresponding parts through several of the embodiments and figures shown and described. Corresponding parts are denoted in different embodiments with the addition of lowercase letters. Variations of corresponding parts in form or function that are depicted in the figures are described. It will be understood that variations in the embodiments can generally be interchanged without deviating from the invention.
  • FIG. 1 shows a barrier 10 having a plurality of barrier elements 12 that are arranged into a mesh. The barrier elements 12 shown in FIG. 1 are ropes, but they can be straps, chains, or any other appropriate elements. In any case the barrier elements 12 can be fixed at their overlapping intersections if called for by the particular application. An outer edge 14 is attached to the perimeter of the barrier 10 by stitches, rivets, or other fastening methods. (If the barrier 10 were made of straps, the outer edge 14 can be the outermost straps of the barrier elements 12 of the barrier 10.) A plurality of mounting straps 16 are attached to the outer edge 14. The barrier 10 in FIG. 1 is shown with mounting straps 16 on the perimeter of the barrier 10, but, as demonstrated herein, it will be understood that mounting straps 16 may be installed on any number of sides as required for the particular application. Each mounting strap 16 is attached to the outer edge 14 with fasteners 15. In FIG. 1, the fasteners 15 are stitches, but as shown herein, other methods of attachment are also possible.
  • As shown in FIG. 2, each mounting strap 16 has at least one finished hole 18 located along its length. The embodiment shown in FIG. 2 has three finished holes 18 that are reinforced with metal grommets 20. The length of the mounting straps 16 and the number of finished holes 18 can be varied depending on the application or the amount of adjustability required. The mounting strap 16 can be made of nylon, polypropylene, cotton, or other appropriate material.
  • The mounting straps 16 give users the option of setting up barriers quickly and easily in a variety of ways. For example, FIG. 3 shows a mounting strap 16 a anchored directly to a frame element 22 a that has openings 24 a formed in it. Each mounting strap 16 a is anchorable to the frame element 22 a by fastening mounting hardware 26 a through a finished hole 18 a that is aligned with an opening 24 a in the frame element 22 a. In FIG. 3, the mounting hardware 26 a comprises a nut 28 a, a bolt 30 a and a washer 32 a, but other types of hardware can be used as required by the particular application. FIG. 4 shows a barrier 10 a having a plurality of mounting straps 16 a attached to two sides of the barrier 10 a in which the mounting straps 16 a are anchored to two vertical frame elements 22 a of storage rack 34 a. The vertical frame elements 22 a have openings 24 a to which the finished holes 18 a of the mounting straps 16 a are aligned and through which mounting hardware 26 a is fastened.
  • The mounting straps can be used to anchor barriers in other ways and for other applications. In FIG. 5 a mounting strap 16 b is anchored to a frame element 22 b, such as a pole, the support beam of a storage rack, the I-beam of building, etc. The mounting strap 16 b is wrapped around the frame element 22 b and two finished holes (hidden behind the mounting hardware 26 b) are aligned to overlap. Mounting hardware 26 b is fastened through the aligned finished holes 18 b. In FIG. 5, the mounting hardware 26 b comprises a nut 28 b, a bolt 30 b and a washer 32 b, but other types of hardware can be used as required by the particular application. FIG. 6 shows a barrier 10 b having a plurality of mounting straps 16 b attached to one side of a barrier 10 b in which the mounting straps 16 b are anchored to a horizontal frame element 22 b as described in FIG. 5, above.
  • As shown in FIG. 7, where mounting straps 16 c cannot be wrapped around or anchored directly to support components, the mounting straps 16 c of a barrier 10 ccan be fastened to anchoring hardware 36 c that are in turn anchored to frame elements 22 c. In FIG. 7 the barrier 10 c has a plurality of mounting straps 16 c attached to three sides of the barrier 10 c. Each mounting strap 16 c has a pair of finished holes (hidden behind the mounting hardware 26 c). Each mounting strap is wrapped around anchoring hardware 36 c and the finished holes are aligned and fastened to the anchoring hardware 36 c with mounting hardware 26 c. The anchoring hardware 36 c can in turn be anchored to frame elements 22 a, in this case the frame of a doorway.
  • FIGS. 8A-8G show close ups of examples of different kinds of anchoring hardware 36 c-i that can be used. The anchoring hardware 36 c-i can variously be anchored directly to a surface or be anchored to various other hardware devices (not shown) such as clips, quick clamps, spring clamps, eye-bolts, hooks, etc. FIG. 8A-8G shows a mounting strap 16 c-i fastened to anchoring hardware 36 c-1 that are an eyebolt, an O-ring, a D-ring, a hook, a spring clip, a clamp, and a carabineer, respectively. Other combinations of mounting hardware are readily apparent.
  • Mounting straps can be attached to barriers in different ways. FIG. 9 shows a close up of a barrier 10 j showing a pair of mounting straps 16 j that are attached to the outer edge 14 j of the barrier 10 j with fasteners 15 j that are stitches. FIG. 10 shows a pair of mounting straps 16 k attached to the outer edge 14 k of a barrier 10 k with fasteners 15 k that are rivets. FIG. 11 shows a pair of mounting straps 16 l attached to a barrier 10 l with fasteners 15 l that are bolts through openings 38 l in the outer edge 14 l. The mounting straps can also be extensions of the barrier elements 12 m that are secured to the outer edge 14 m with fasteners 15 m that are stitches as shown in FIG. 12.
  • This invention has been described with reference to several preferred embodiments. Many modifications and alterations will occur to others upon reading and understanding the preceding specification. It is intended that the invention be construed as including all such alterations and modifications in so far as they come within the scope of the appended claims or the equivalents of these claims.
