Abstract

The wall seat is a box unit that fits between conventional wall stud framing with no legs or hinges. The seat mounts inside a wall. To operate, pull on seat knob, lower to a perpendicular position and slide under the seat stop. This is accomplished because the 2 vertical slides of the box have an L shaped dado at the bottom. These coincide with protruding dowels at the bottom of the seat enabling the seat to slide freely in the dado. The ⅝″ radius on the bottom of the seat allows it to swing in an upward and downward motion without being obstructed. When the seat is in the perpendicular position and slid under the seat stop the position remains the same with a load of 210 lbs. The condo wall seat can be used anywhere space is limited and seating is needed with an attractive wood framed cabinet appearance.

Description

    CROSS REFERENCE APPLICATIONS
  • This application is a non-provisional application claiming the benefits of provisional application No. 61/704,870 filed Sep. 24, 2012.
  • FIELD OF INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to a wall mounted fold down seat that does not touch the floor.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Recessed, wall-mounted fold-down seats have found use in both stationary or movable dwelling structures such as condos, trains, hospitals, and other public and institutional facilities, such as prisons and jails.
  • In hospitals, for example, wall-hung, fold-down seats made of stainless steel and/or similar high-strength, non-deteriorating materials have found use in showering and bathing facilities where a patient may find it difficult or unsafe to stand while showering or bathing.
  • One greatly desired feature of this type of fold-down seat is that it should be completely free of a leg or legs which must rest upon the floor for seat support. Where leg supports are used, in order to adequately clean and sanitize the floor, the seat must be either completely removed from the area, or it must be moved from one position to another in order to clean the floor space in and around and under the legs of such chair or benches. This procedure is obviously eliminated when a fold-down seat without legs is utilized. This would especially be true in a ski condo where the seat is in a narrow hallway and is used to put ski boots on.
  • Another important characteristic of such a seat and seat stowage unit, is that it should be as thin as possible to permit its installation within the thickness of existing walls without the need to create a seat installation accessway completely through the mounting wall. This is virtually a requirement when the opposite side of the mounting wall also faces another room and is not concealed from view.
  • Other important features of this type of seat are well known to those knowledgeable in the seating art.
  • General, a fold-down, wall-mounted seat comprises a seat stowage housing and support structure mounted within a recess in a wall, a seating surface pivotally mounted to the seat stowage and support structure so as to be capable of being stowed in a vertical position and movable to a horizontal position for use as a seat to conveniently permit the seat to be lowered into its horizontal or seating position or raised therefrom to its vertical or stowed position.
  • Folding seats found in the prior art employed one or two angle brace and support members to carry the weight of a person on the seat. The angle brace and support member(s) are structurally connected between the sides of the seat and the seat stowage pan and support structure. The angle brace and support member(s) may comprise either a fixed member pivoted at one or both ends so as to be slideably engageable with either or both the seat or the seat stowage and support structure or a collapsible member pivotally attached to both the seat and seat stowage and support structure.
  • However, it is obvious that when angle braces and support members are used in a seat of this type that such adds both expense and weight to the seat.
  • Further, such members serve as undesirable obstructions to the seat user. Such obstructions require that the seat area be enlarged to permit a person to sit thereon without contacting the angle-brace members. This, of course, increases the size of the seat and its cost.
  • When the size of the seat is increased, the recess in the wall which is to accommodate the seat must be correspondingly enlarged as well.
  • The closest known prior art is U.S. Pat. No. 3,873,151 (1975) to Morris et al. Generally it is designed as a stainless steel fold down seat for use in showers, hospitals and penal institutions. The seat pivots down from the wall mounted storage and support housing. The pivot points are fixed. A rear edge of the seat abuts a pair of vertical metal U shaped struts which support the weight on the seat. The design problems with this invention include the cost and decor issues when used in a sheetrock wall in a condominium.
  • What is needed in the art is a simple, wooden, cabinet like fold down seat. The present invention provides a cabinet like appearance for use in a ski condo hallway as an example. The (preferably) wooden seat has a slot on each side of the support sides which support the pivot pins on the seat. The seat is pulled out to fold up and pushed in to place the rear edge under a (wooden) stop built into the cabinet style housing.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The main aspect of the present invention is to provide a simple, low cost, cabinet like folding seat that can be installed between two by fours in a wall.
  • Another aspect of the present invention is to provide a bracing system that keeps the seat perpendicular to the wall.
  • Another aspect of the present invention is to provide an easily installable device.
  • Other aspects of this invention will appear from the following description and appended claims, reference being made to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification wherein like reference characters designate corresponding parts in the several views.
  • There are distinct advantages to purchasing BIFMA-approved furniture. These advantages relate to assurance that the furniture will help to promote a working environment which is functional and healthy. Although non-BIRMA compliant furniture may also help to create this type of working environment, employers who purchase BIFMA-compliant furniture have the peace of mind of knowing the furniture has passed the tests designed by BIFMA. These tests are designed with BIFMA's goal of providing standards that support safe, healthy and sustainable environments. Furniture items that meet these requirements are likely to result in greater productivity and fewer work-related injuries or accidents.
  • Testing Done:
    • 1. Chair Drop Functional Load—A 225 lb. weight is positioned 6 inches above the seat of the chair and allowed to free-fall onto the center of the seat. The chair passes if there is no structural breakage of loss of serviceability.
    • 2. Chair Drop Proof Load—a 300 lb. weight is positioned 6 inches above the seat of the chair and allowed to free-fall onto the center of the seat. The chair passes if there is no structural breakage of loss of serviceability.
    • 3. Seating Impact Test—A 125 lb. weight is dropped from a height of 2 inches onto the surface of the chair seat for 100,000 cycles. The chair passes if there is no structural breakage or loss of serviceability.
    • 4. Results: Rating at 250 lbs.
  • The material for the seat will preferably be ¾″ 13 ply birch plywood for all parts, except the back of the box, which is ¼″ Masonite, and the frame of the box shall be of a solid wood material.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • Referring first to FIG. 1 the folding seat 100 has an optional wood frame F around the cabinet C that houses the seat 6 which has a knob handle H. Nominal dimensions for all figures are d1=22¼∝; d2=17″; d3=3½″.
  • In FIGS. 2, 3 the cabinet C has a back wall BH, a bottom 1, and a top TH. The left side 4 is a mirror image of the right side 2. Each side at its lower segment has a slot (deep dado) D in which ride the pins P at each side of the seat 6. The vertical notch VD holds the pin P as the seat 6 is pulled out about two inches and then pivoted up to the closed position. In order to ensure a perpendicular angle to the back BH of the seat 6 when weighted, as shown by arrow FORCE, a wedge strip W is secured across the front of the bottom 1. Felt strips FELT 1, FELT 2 provide a smooth movement for seat 6. Screw holes SCR are used to secure the sides to the wall studs.
  • The stop 5 supports the weight of the FORCE. Stop 5 is secured to the sides 2, 4 and back BH of cabinet C.
  • In FIG. 3 the bottom 1 and stop 5 are covered by felt protectors FELT 1, FELT 2 to prevent scratches on the front of the seat 6 as it is opened and closed. Optional magnetic couplers MAG 1, MAG 2 can hold the door 6 closed.
  • In FIG. 4 the view is from inside the cabinet, the side 4 has a cutout 4 CUT to secure the back BH.
  • FIG. 5 shows an end view of the stop 5.
  • FIG. 6 shows the dimensions of the seat 6, d4=17 13/16″; d5=12⅝″. A rear leveled edge RBE facilitates opening/closing seat 6.
  • FIG. 7 shows a 16 inch center wall WA with studs ST and sheetrock SR. The cutout for cabinet C into the sheetrock SR can be done using a cardboard mockup. Screws SCR 1 are ready to secure sides 2, 4 to studs ST. The seat 6 may have a magnet latch MAG 1, MAG 2. The space SPACE in cabinet C may be used for storage, or a cushion (not shown) could be affixed at face CUSH of seat 6 which would take up the space SPACE. Molds for 19 and 24 inch on center walls are sized accordingly.
  • FIG. 8 shows the pull out, push in, in action to open and close the seat 6. Seat 6C shown in dots shows the seat 6 between the open and closed position arrows up, down show the motions imparted on seat 6 by a user.

    Fabrication of the Condo Wall Seat.
  • To fabricate the condo wall seat start with part #2 and insert part #1 into the ¾″×⅜″ deep dado at the bottom of part #2 once done insert part #8 onto the ¼″× 7/16″ deep dado at the back of part #1 and part #2. Take part #4 and align part #1 into the ¾″×⅜″ dado at the same time insert the protruding ½″ dowel on part #6 into the L shaped dado on part #2 and part #4 aligning the ¼″× 7/16″ dado at the back of part #4 and snap together. Take part #3 and slip it between parts 2 and 4 aligning the ¼″× 7/16″ dado on part #3 into part #8 and push down until part #3 is flush at the top of part #2 and part #4. The condo wall seat should be together. At this time we will fasten the parts together using #8, 2″ screws. Drill parts #2 and #4 at 1⅜″ up from bottom and in from the front and back edges ⅝″ with a #8 counter sink 1¾″ deep and insert 4 #8, 2″ screws, this will fasten parts 2 and 4 to part #1. Keeping part #3 flush with the tops of part 2 and part 4 drill with a #8 counter sink 1¾″ deep at the back edge of parts 2 and 4, ⅜″ down from the tops of boards 2 and 4 and ⅞″ in from the back edge inset 2 #8 2″ screws this will fasten the top part of parts #2 and #4 to part #3 measuring in from the front edge of parts 2 and 4⅝″ and down from the top of parts 2 and 4 #⅜″ using a #8 counter sink drill two holes 1¾″ deep and insert 2 #8 2″ screws at this time the condo wall seat should be fasten together. At this time lower part #6 so it is perpendicular to the box and slide the seat back until it touches the back of the box or part #8. Insert part #5 between parts 2 and 4 and rest on top of part #6 leaving 1/16″ reveal between the two parts, be sure that part #5 fits tight against part #8. To secure part #5 to parts 2 and 4 measure up from the bottom of parts 2 and 4, 3″ and 6¼″ and in from the back edge ⅞″ and drill with a #8 counter sink 1¾″ deep holes and insert 2 #8 2″ screws through part 2 and part 4 this will secure part 5 to parts 2 and 4. Measure up 3″ off the bottom of parts 2 and 4 and in from the front edge 1¼″ and drill 2 holes with a #8 counter sink 1¾″ deep and insert 2 #8 2″ screws. Measure up from the bottom of parts #2 and #4 3¾″ and 5¾″ and in from the back edge ⅞″ and drill a ⅜″ hole 1¾″ deep add tight bond glue to the holes and install 4, ⅜″×1¾″ oak dowels at those locations. The condo wall seat should now be operational. Now we will fasten the frame part #7 to the front of the box using 1¼″ pocket screws located at the front edge of parts 2 and 4 measuring up from the bottom of parts 2 and 4, 3″, 8″, 12½″ and 17½″ drill for a 1¼″ pocket screw. Measuring in from the left side and on the front edge of parts #1 and part #3, 2½″, 6½″ and 10½″ drill for 1¼″ pocket screws. Install the 14, 1¼″ pocket screws and the fabrication of the condo wall seat is complete.
  • Another way to fabricate the condo wall seat would be eliminated the #8, 2″ screws, using ¼″ dowels in the screw locations, that would be glued in.
  • Installation Instructions
  • Located where you want to install the condo wall seat and measure up off the floor 15½″ and draw a level line between the wall studs. Measure up from the 15½″ line 20⅝″ and draw a level line between the wall studs. Draw a plumb line down both inside edges of the wall studs. Your drywall cut out dimension should be 14⅜″×20⅝″. Before cutting out drywall check for plumbing pipes or electrical wiring by making a smaller hole within the cut out location. Once you have found the stud bay clear of obstructions cut drywall out on the proscribed lines with a drywall saw and install the 2 pieces of 2×4 supplied by sliding one piece down each side of the wall studs they should line up with the lower line of the drywall cutout, slide condo wall seat into opening and pre drill the 12 marked counter sunk holes using a ⅛″ drill bit, insert the 12 #8, 2½″ screws and you are finished. Make sure that the seat is slid back into the line before use.
