Abstract

The invention relates to a three-dimensional advertising sign for arrangement on or in front of a surface, in particular a wall, with an under face of a body facing the wall and a front face (12) of the body, for application of lettering. According to the invention, the under face is not completely planar, but rather comprises a form which withdraws towards the edges, in particular, a convex form.

Description

Three-dimensional advertising sign

description

The invention relates to a three-dimensional advertising sign for arrangement in front or on a surface, in particular wall, facing with one of the bottom surface of a body and a label receiving a top of the body.

Three-dimensional advertising signs for wall mounting are usually formed into a box shape. The exterior is thus striking but also clumsy.

With the present invention an advertising sign to be created, that in the view gives a certain lightness. The advertising sign will float optically as possible in the room or in front of the associated wall.

The three-dimensional advertising sign according to the invention is characterized in that the bottom is not continuously formed flat but has a circumferentially receding, in particular convex shape. In view obliquely from the side of the advertising sign does not function as part of the underlying surface. Rather, the sign in front of the face seems to float.

In one circumferentially on all sides receding shape almost automatically results in the convex shape of the bottom. In fact, slight differences may exist to increase the stability of the advertising plate or to ensure a more stable attachment of the advertising plate on the underlying surface. Preferably, the upper surface is substantially convex.

Overall, the advertising sign has an elongated shape with a peripheral edge between the top and bottom, wherein the circumferential edge is divided into mutually opposite longitudinal sides and opposite ends. Advantageously, the advertising sign is internally hollow, so that the top and bottom seal a cavity substantially, and preferably at least partially translucent, are thus formed translucent. Typically, in the cavity, a lamp is disposed as light source. The label on the top can also be designed as an image, symbol, logo or the like.

In development of the invention at least one area for receiving the label is defined on the upper side (front side). The definition is made preferably by an opening rim embossing or in the top. It is also a circumferential ridge on the top, in the manner of a frame or a combination of these agents.

Advantageously, the area to receive the label is arranged with distance to the transition between bottom and top. Characterized a label edge portions is avoided, particularly with rotating distance to the transition between bottom and top.

If the area for receiving the label rather than opening but is materialized, it is also especially transparent (translucent) is formed. By the usually provided interior lighting gives a special effect for the label. This is strengthened, especially if the area to receive the label is more translucent than the top of the remainder. In particular, the area is formed as a clear glass surface, so that a damping of the light through the material of the upper surface must not be considered in the design of the label.

The area for receiving the label preferably has for this purpose a suitable fastening means, in particular screw bushings.

Advantageously, the advertising sign is characterized by a region of high light transmission, which is provided laterally between the top and bottom or at the top or bottom and exits through the light from the advertising sign. In particular, a crystal-clear, circumferential slot or corresponding material from 0.5 to 4 cm in thickness, is provided, approximately in the region of the transition between top and bottom. Through the glass-clear material, light can emerge from the advertising sign and generate additional optical effects, such as on the Fiäche, in front of the advertising sign is placed.

According to a further aspect of the invention arranged decorative materials are provided outside of the body, which are in particular illuminated by the advertising sign, the radiated light, either from the already radiated from the body light or the discharged over very translucent or even crystal clear areas of light.

Preferably, an areal or plate-shaped object is provided as a decorative material, of the openings, holes, recesses or a structured surface can have. For example, a perforated plate may be provided, whose surface is preferably slightly larger than a largest cross-sectional surface (parallel to the surface) of the body. Ornamental material or object on the one hand, and labeling on the other hand are to be exchangeable as possible. The body serves as a basic module, which remains unchanged, while different advertising signs can be created by replacing the decorative material and the label.

Advantageously, the decorative material or the object in the region of the underside of the advertising plate or in the region of a transition between top and bottom is arranged. In one arrangement of the lower side or between the body and a surface, in front of the advertising sign is attached, a continuous plate, a continuous sheet or the like may be provided in particular. It is also possible a configuration in the manner of a frame with a cutout for receiving the advertising plate, for example in arrangement of particular dimensional object in the region of the underside of the advertising sign and close to the transition between the top and bottom. The body then immersed optically into the surface of the article. Naturally, the cutout is matched in the article to the dimensions of the body. For connecting the body with the decorative material former has corresponding fastening means, such as circumferentially spaced sockets.

For fixing the advertising plate at a distance from a wall surface or corresponding fastening means are provided. This may even be designed so that an optically clear distance between the body and the wall or surface is achieved.

In the area of ​​the end faces the upper side is at least designed in a special way. Here are provided chamfers. Thus, a gradually increasing cross-section and not a larger transverse surface also results in a plan view of the end sides. Provided that comprises the underside in the region of the end sides chamfers, resulting at each end a V-shaped cross-section. Further features of the invention will become apparent from the claims and from the description otherwise. Embodiments of the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to drawings.

A three-dimensional advertising sign 10 - also referred to as Transparent - comprises a body 11 having a top 12 and an underside. 13 These may be referred to as front and back and form between them a cavity in which a light source is arranged, in the present case two tubes fourteenth

The body 11 is mounted in front of a surface or wall 15th The wall facing the bottom 13 has corresponding fastening means, such as struts 16, which define between the bottom 13 and the wall 15 a distance and are fastened in a manner not shown on the wall of 15 °. Referring to FIGS. 1 and 4, two struts 16 are provided side by side. In Fig. 3, at least two struts are arranged one above the other. The body 11 is in the view of the observer, ie in the plan view of the top side 12, substantially rectangular in shape, in particular with a longitudinal extent in the horizontal direction (length) and a correspondingly lower height (width). The depth is obtained as the dimension in the direction of the wall of 15 °.

The top 12 is rounded in the direction of the length is substantially flat and in the width direction, that is convex. The rounding is uniform manner of a part-circle which extends over about 40 ° - 90 ° extends. Laterally, that is in the range of end faces 17, 18 the upper sides are chamfered. Corresponding bevels are indicated by the numerals 19 and 20th

In the present case, the bottom 13 as well (in particular the same) as the upper surface 12 rounded, that is convex and is provided with own bevels 21, provided 22nd

By the rounded or convex surface of top and bottom (in particular the underside 13) results in a very special visual impression. The advertising sign 10 appears to float in front of the wall 15th A compound of the advertising plate 10 with the wall 15 is not apparent.

The bevels 19 to 22 arise at the end faces 17 or 18 each have a V-shaped cross section and so support the optical impression of a certain ease.

Top 12 and bottom 13 are made of translucent material, preferably colored, milky translucent material. Characterized the light from the fluorescent tubes 14 is radiated to the outside.

On the front side 12 an area 23 for receiving a label 24 is defined. For this purpose, a circumferential web 25, or a frame is placed on top of the 12th The web forms a rectangle in which the label 24 is provided and the sides of which respectively extend at a distance from orbiting the longitudinal sides 26 and the end faces 17, 18 and the chamfers 19, 20th Longitudinal sides 26, 27 and end sides 17, 18 at the same time constitute the circumferential edge of the carcass. 11

The area inside of the web 25 - of the top surface 12 - is labeled 24, and for this purpose comprises suitable fastening means, such as screw bushings. The material of the surface corresponding to the top 12 and is part of the same. In an embodiment not shown in the range 23 no surface is provided but a breakthrough or an opening which is covered by the label 24th

The label 24 consists in the embodiment shown from successive letters. In addition or instead of and graphical symbols or plate-like structure for easy insertion into the area 23 may be provided. Preferably, the portion 23 is rounded or convex, at least in the width direction of the body. 11

Between the top 12 and bottom 13, a circumferential layer 29 is provided made of clear material of about 12 cm thickness. This allows a light emission just in this area and mainly parallel to the wall 15th

In order to increase the optical effect of the advertising plate 10 the body 11 is assigned as the ornamental surface of a plate-shaped object 30, in this case a perforated plate. This has slightly larger dimensions parallel to the wall 15 as the body 11 and is disposed 11 and the wall 15 between the body or is broken from the body 11 and is provided for this purpose in the manner of a frame with a corresponding recess in which the body 11 with its underside 13 is immersed, see Fig. 3, 4, 6 and 7. Due to the translucent material of the body 11 and through the light exit through the glass-clear layer 29 of the object 30 is illuminated. At the same time the wall 15 is illuminated, see light rays 31 in Fig. 4. In this way, the visual impression of a floating front of the wall 15 advertising plate is further reinforced 10th

For illuminating the object 30 and the wall 15, the arrangement of bevels 21, 22 contributes. These have the effect that the exiting light is obliquely directed in the area of ​​the end faces 17, 18 and is visible to the viewer as a reflection.

The invention enables the design unterschiedlichster yard signs by simply changing the label 24 and the object 30. Always consistently is the body 11. This can therefore be produced economically in large quantities, while the label 24 and the object 30 are each individually to customize. Since it is easy geometric shapes, this is also cost-effective manner. Without major additional costs, the color of the material for the body 11 and the layer 29 can still be varied. As a result, a lot of different advertising signs can be constructed with a standard form of the body. 11

As stated above, it is in vorliege4den case with the article 30 is a rectangular perforated plate. The illuminated from the bottom 13 and reflected by the wall 15 of the light passes through the openings in the perforated plate produces visible again. In an embodiment not shown, the article 30 is designed as a plate or frame without holes, but preferably with a structured surface such as a floor plate having alternately and transversely to each other arranged corrugations. Further modifications are conceivable, such as a surface in the manner of an opaque mirror. As article 30 also rusted steel plates, glasses shattered, burnt wooden planks and the like may be provided. Important is the simple arrangement on or behind the body. 11

It is also an integrated design, namely a one-piece design of the body 11 with the preferably planar or even planar or box-like object 30. Finally, the object 30 may also extend over only a particular most of the longitudinal dimension of the body 11, see FIG. 5 and 6. there it looks as immerse the body 11 into the flat box-like object 30 is partially (from above). The spatial effect is further enhanced thereby. The object 30 is located exactly in the middle herein with respect to the thickness of the body. 11
