The bottom surface is coated with a foam layer and a pressure sensitive adhesive layer. A bottom of the foam layer is flush with that of the pressure sensitive adhesive layer. The pressure sensitive adhesive layer is adjacent to the second side surface. The first side surface is formed with a male engaging portion, and the second side surface is formed with a female engaging portion adapted to mate with a male engaging portion of another panel body.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates to floor panel, and more particularly to a pressure sensitive adhering floor panel.
  • 2. Description of the Prior Art
  • For indoor decorative purposes, some cement floor and tile floor may be coated with floor panels made of wood or the like material.
  • To apply floor panels on the floor, a wooden substrate should be applied on the floor first, and then the wooden floor panels can be nailed on the wooden substrate. Another way to apply the floor panels is to install a layer of longitudinal planks on the floor, then to install a layer of transversal planks on the longitudinal planks, then to install the wooden substrate on the transversal planks, and thereafter to nail the floor panels on the wooden substrate.
  • It is noticed that the installation of conventional floor panels is very expensive but not efficient. Tools such as nailing devices or hammers are needed to fix the floor panels on the floor, which will produce noise. Further, the installation process is not easy for an untrained user.
  • The present invention is, therefore, arisen to obviate or at least mitigate the above mentioned disadvantages.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The main object of the present invention is to provide a pressure sensitive adhering floor panel that can be easily and economically installed.
  • To achieve the above and other objects, a pressure sensitive adhering floor panel of the present invention includes a panel body. The panel body has a top surface, a bottom surface, a first side surface and a second side surface opposite to the first side surface. The bottom surface is coated with a foam layer and a pressure sensitive adhesive layer. A bottom of the foam layer is flush with that of the pressure sensitive adhesive layer. The pressure sensitive adhesive layer is adjacent to the second side surface. The first side surface is formed with a male engaging portion, and the second side surface is formed with a female engaging portion adapted to mate with a male engaging portion of another panel body.
  • The present invention will become more obvious from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, which show, for purpose of illustrations only, the preferred embodiment(s) in accordance with the present invention.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 is a perspective drawing showing a floor panel of the present invention;
  • FIG. 2 is a perspective drawing showing two combined floor panels of the present invention;
  • FIG. 3 is a profile showing the combination of two floor panels of the present invention;
  • FIG. 4 is a profile showing two combined floor panels of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • Please refer to FIG. 1. A pressure sensitive adhering floor panel of the present invention is adapted to be applied on the floor. The floor panel includes a panel body 10. The panel body 10 has a top surface 11, a bottom surface 12, a first side surface 13 and a second side surface 14 opposite to the first side surface 13. More specifically, the panel body 10 is a cuboid, in which the side surfaces 13, 14 are the lengthy sides rather than the short sides. The bottom surface 12 is coated with a foam layer 15 and a pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16. A bottom of the foam layer 15 is flush with that of the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16. Preferably, the foam layer 15 and the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 mutually entirely cover the bottom surface 12. The pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 is adjacent to the second side surface 14, and the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 is longitudinal. A width of the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 is no bigger than one third of a distance between the first and second side surfaces 13 and 14. In order to prevent the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 from unexpectedly adhere to an object, the bottom of the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 is further coated with a release paper (not shown). The release paper is peeled off from the bottom of the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 when the floor panel is applied on the floor.
  • Please further refer to FIG. 2. The first side surface 13 is formed with a male engaging portion, and the second side surface is formed with a female engaging portion for a male engaging portion of another panel body 20 to mate therewith. To elevate the engagement effect, the male engaging portion is designed to be a protrusive rim 313 lengthwise extended toward a width direction of the panel body 10, and the female engaging portion is designed to be a longitudinal slot 32 lengthwise caved in from the second side surface 14. Preferably, the slot 32 has an open end 33, a closed end 34, an upper wall 35 and a lower wall 36. The upper wall 35 includes an upper slanted section 351 and an upper horizontal section 352. The upper slanted section 351 is close to the open end 33 of the longitudinal slot 32 and is slanted toward the top surface 11 of the panel body 10. The upper horizontal section 352 is close to the closed end 34 of the longitudinal slot 32 and is parallel to the width direction of the panel body 10. The lower wall 36 includes a lower slanted section 361 and a lower horizontal section 362. The lower slanted section 361 is close to the closed end 34 of the longitudinal slot 32 and is parallel to the upper slanted section 351. The lower horizontal section 362 is close to the open end 33 of the longitudinal slot 32 and is parallel to the upper horizontal section 352. Preferably, the horizontal sections 352 and 362 are lengthwise formed with engaging rims 353 and 363 extended toward a direction perpendicular to the horizontal sections 352 and 362. The protrusive rim 31 is formed with engaging slots 311 and 312 corresponding to the engaging slots 353 and 363.
  • To combine the panel bodies 10 and 20, the protrusive rim 31 is inserted into the longitudinal slot 32 a of the panel 20 along an orientation of the slanted sections 352 a and 353 a as shown in FIG. 3. Thereafter, the panel body 10 pivots downward to be parallel to the panel body 20 as shown in FIG. 4, engaging the protrusive rim 31 with the horizontal sections 352 a and 353 a. That is, the engaging slots 311 and 312 mates with the engaging rims 353 a and 363 a respectively. Thereby, the panel bodies 10 and 20 are combined.
  • The panel body 10 may have a third side surface and a fourth side surface, each of which is further formed with another male engaging portion and female engaging portion respectively.
  • It is noted that, at the time the panel body 10 pivots downward to be parallel to the panel body 20, the pressure sensitive adhesive layer 16 adjacent to the second side surface 14 also adheres to the floor. In other words, the panel body 10 engages with the panel body 20 and adheres to the floor simultaneously. As such, the installation of the floor panel of the present invention is significantly simplified.
  • In addition, the floor panels of the present invention can be positioned on the floor without nails, and no wooden substrate is needed for the floor panels to be nailed thereon. Thus a user can easily install the floor panels of the present invention all by himself/herself. Further, the foam layer is slightly deformable, so the floor panels can applied on the floor flush even the floor is not totally smooth. Also, the foam layer can be used to absorb noise as well as vibrations.
