Description

CONSTRUCTIVE DISPOSAL IN SOCKET OF FLOOR or more particularly the present Utility Model, which includes technical and functional improvement specially developed for characterizing a system of socket of floors, showing significant improvement in its usage.

Field of application:

The present constructive disposal refers to wood laminates with a specific socket system in between, used to structure floors in general, thus belonging to areas of civil construction and environment decoration.

State of the art:

It is common knowledge that usage of laminate wood floor in residential and commercial buildings is very common.

In order to structure such floors it is often used several segments (boards) of specific dimensions, mounted in parallel one to the other, in order to structure the floor in a specific environment.

To structure the floors, this kind of laminate presents a socket system in its side ends. Each of these boards has a male kind socket on one side and one female kind socket on the other. Therefore, the female kind socket is often made in a guide shape, while the male kind socket presents a drawing that fits the drawing of the female kind socket requiring the boards to be sideward fitted or displacing them on the guide way.

This kind of socket presents as a great inconvenient the fact of needing wide space to be done, what makes it difficult the mounting of the last parts of the floor, many times damaging the completion and creating some offscourings.

The current floors even present other inconvenient in their montage because it is necessary the usage of glue in female kind channels in order to lock the parts in between, and to do so it is necessary the glue to dry before the floor suffers any kind of effort, and this drying period lasts about 24 hours. In case the floor suffers any kind of effort during drying period it can cause fails in the completion creating spaces between floor parts.

As nowadays it is used glue to join the floor parts, it is necessary the cleaning of its excess in the surface of the floor, in the join between the parts.

Another inconvenient presented by the current used floors is identified after natural expansion of the parts because certain environment areas may receive more sun than others, creating some defects of completion such as bending. This kind of problem happens due to the kind of socket used between parts that do not accept natural expansion and retraction of the parts. Besides such inconvenient, the floors today used do not allow their re-usage, that is, in case it is wished the floor to be dismantled, the parts are lost because, the glue and the kind of socket between the parts make them to break when taken off, making them not useful and preventing the re-usage as a floor. Objectives of the Model:

Considering the abovementioned circumstances, it was developed the present constructive disposal that, in general, presents a new kind of laminate sheet having a system of characteristic socket that facilitates the floor montage. Inside such scope, the main characteristic of the present constructive disposal is the fact of presenting a wood laminate sheet or plywood having a system of sidelong socket, in which each sheet is inserted angled to the socket of the other, in order to be put in its final position. The present constructive disposal presents a sidelong socket system being structured by a male kind element and another of female kind, but the socket between the sheets occurs in a way different from the one found in conventional floors where the parts must necessarily be aligned one to another in order to fit.

Another characteristic of the present constructive disposal is the fact of presenting a kind of socket between the parts, appropriate to absorb the natural expansion and retraction of the parts, improving the completion of the finished floor, preventing bending and displacement between the parts.

Another point to be presented is the fact that the present constructive disposal does not need glue for joining the parts that compose the floor, which diminished the work and time used in installing. Another advantage of the present constructive disposal is the fact of presenting a socket system that eliminates any kind of completion fail between the parts, as its parts are fitted and interlocked, they do not present differences among the parts, maintaining the uniformity and eliminating possible installing fails. Another advantage proposed by the present constructive disposal is the fact of proportionating the immediate usage of the floor after its installation because, as the present constructive disposal eliminates the need of using glue, it is not necessary to wait it to dry or to perform a cleaning allowing it usage right after the installation. Another characteristic of the present constructive disposal is the fact that it is possible to re-use the floor, since the parts are fitted one to another and it is possible to dismantle them with no damage. This kind of characteristic also makes it simpler its maintenance, since in case one of the parts becomes damaged it is possible to dismantle the floor and change it.

In this case, the present constructive disposal presents an improved socket system, since the male kind socket of one sheet can be inserted inside the female kind socket from the other sheet in angle being then displaced downwards in a way to align and fixing one to the other.

Thus, according to such constructive characteristics, the present constructive disposal presents a mounting system very easy in relation to laminate floor systems today used, simplifying the mounting procedure, reducing workmanship time as well as facilitating the mounting even in the last parts of the floor.

For a better understanding of the present Utility Model, it is hereafter presented a detailed description of it, referring to the attached drawings where: Figure 1 - Represents a perspective view of a sheet shaped according to the present constructive disposal;

Figure 2 - Represents a side view illustrating the referred sheet;

Figure 3 - Represents a cut view illustrating in details the male kind socket;

Figure 4 - Represents a cut view illustrating in details the female kind socket;

Figure 5 - Represents a side view of a constructive variant of a sheet according to the present constructive disposal; Figure 6 - Represents a cut view illustrating in details the male kind socket of the referred constructive variant;

Figure 7 - Represents a side view like the prior but showing details of the female kind socket; and

Figure 8 - Represents a set of side views illustrating the socket between the sheets.

According to such illustrations and their details, the present

Utility Model, CONSTRUCTIVE DISPOSAL IN SOCKET OF

FLOQR", is basically shaped by a laminate part (1), preferably made in a material such as plywood, agglomerated or any other wood material having both sides smooth, being one top (2) and one bottom

(3).

Both faces (2 and 3) can receive different kinds of completion imitating several kinds of wood or other kinds of materials. In one of the side ends, said part (1) presents a male kind socket (4) presenting a projection whose bottom face is in curvilinear

(5) and shaping a socket (6) in its back portion in which it is contemplated an slant plan (7) to facilitate the socket between the parts (1). This socket (4) fits a female kind socket (8) shaped on the other side end of the referred part (1).

The referred socket presents a bottom projection (9) having a socket projection (10) in its end. The referred projection (10) presents a curvilinear wall (11) that finds a parallel plan with top (2) and bottom (3) faces, but in the referred projection (10) it presents a diagonal plan (11) to facilitate the socket between the parts (1).

In a constructive variant (12) it can be observed differences in socket drawings (124 and 128) in which it is not observed the slant plans. Taking into account such characteristics, to fit the floor, the first part (1) is put on the environment floor, and then the male kind socket (4) of the next part (T) is put in angle along with the female kind socket (8) of the first part (1).

After this installation, the part (T) is displaced downwards making the inferior face (5) of projection to displace over the inferior projection (9) in a way the bottom face (5) become aligned with the curvilinear wall (10), and the diagonal plan (11) facilitates such setting.

With both parts aligned (1 and 1'), the bottom projection (9) receives the male kind socket (4) so that the socket projection (10) becomes properly locked in the bottom socket (6) fixing parts (1 and 1 ') together.

As parts (1 and 1') are properly locked one to another, natural dilation and retraction processes do not provoke bendings or parts' displacement, thus improving the completion of the floor and providing it a longer life cycle.

Besides, as parts (1 and 1') are joined by sockets, it is not necessary the usage of glue, reason by which it is possible to promote its dismantle, unfitting parts (1 and 1'), thus facilitating its re-usage, as s well as facilitating eventual maintenance works.

As it is observed, after what was exposed and illustrated, the "CONSTRUCTIVE DISPOSAL IN SOCKET OF FLOOR" perfectly fits inside the criteria that define an Utility Model, since it matches and modifies elements already known in a new shape with a differentiated o disposition of its components, thus increasing its efficiency and facilitating its usage, being perfectly possible its industrial application.
