Description

Trim panel and formed therefrom panel

description

The invention relates to a trim panel for covering a subsurface, in particular a floor, which has a for engaging the ground certain contact surface and a surface facing away from the contact surface visible surface, and further comprising two pairs of opposite side edges, one of which is provided with coupling units of at least , said coupling units each comprise a coupling element and a coupling recess, wherein the coupling elements are formed substantially L-shaped, wherein a a first side edge associated first coupling member having a first main web and a first secondary web and a second side edge associated second coupling element a second major web and a second secondary web, wherein the first main web and the second major web extend substantially parallel to the direction of extension of the trim panel, and wherein the first coupling unit and the second coupling unit are formed and reasonable arranged that they counteract a relative displacement of the two covering panels are free of play interlockingly connectable to a second coupling unit and a first coupling unit of an identically formed in the trim panel with respect to their direction of extension substantially.

Such trim panels usually have on the longer of the two pairs of opposite side edges via coupling elements by mesh-pivoting about a to the side edge substantially parallel to axis (so-called "Angling- coupling elements") or by fitting-sliding in a to the panel plane substantially parallel direction may be connected together. the cladding panels may be provided with coupling elements to the shorter of the two pairs of opposite side edges, which by simply into one another, add in a direction orthogonal to the panel plane essentially direction (so-called "fold-down coupling elements"), or turn by interlocking panning a to the side edge substantially parallel to axis ( "Angling coupling elements") can be connected together. While the shape of the fold-down coupling elements a pure, ie, have practically unaltered, L-shape, the Angling coupling elements have at the side remote from the main web of the L-shaped side surface of the secondary web of a coupling unit via an additional approach, the assigned in a deepening of Kopp- lungsausnehmung of the other coupling unit engages. In this case one can speak of a degenerate or modified L-shape.

Regardless of the specific design of the coupling elements occur in practice, for example when walking on a floor covering formed from such cladding panels to creaking noises. Although these sounds are due to the greater freedom for relative movements, in particular in a direction orthogonal to the panel plane direction substantially to hear at Fold-down coupling elements more clearly than at Angling coupling elements but also occur there. To a stronger noise occurs also in cladding panels, the mutually abutting end faces coated at least on the visible surface adjacent, for example painted, have been. Such a coating is provided, for example at a MDF core enacting siding panels, the visible surface of the

Adjacent end face with a bevel is provided, which extends into the MDF core in order to protect the MDF core from the ingress of moisture. The noise however, also occurs in trim panels whose faces are not coated.

It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a cladding panel of the aforementioned type, in which the noise is at least reduced if not completely eliminated. According to the invention this object is achieved by a trim panel with the features of claim 1.

By inventively provided minimum distance which may for example be at least 0.05 mm, more preferably at least 0.1 mm, can be prevented that the end surfaces of the two lining panels interconnected with a relative movement rub against each other. It has been found that this friction is the cause for the development of noise. The provision of such

Minimum distance runs counter to the usual expert thinking, because it is equated with the conscious and deliberate providing a gap between the two cladding panels. However, the provision of columns is undesirable because on the one hand column interfere with the uniform appearance of the coating formed from the cladding panels and on the other facilitate the penetration of moisture into the cladding panels. It has been found, however, that in particular the penetration of moisture can also be avoided in another way, for example by a sufficient expansion of the coating above already mentioned.

Another contribution to noise reduction according to the invention accomplished in that those pairs of surfaces of the first coupling unit and second coupling unit, which provide the clothing panels in the direction of extension of the comparison substantially play-free engagement, extend obliquely to a plane orthogonal to the panel plane direction. This can prevent that these pairs of surfaces rub at a relative movement of the two covering panels connected to one another in a direction orthogonal to the panel plane direction to each other. Rather, they appear briefly disengaged with each other.

In this context it should be noted that one of the two coupling units, a part of the surface pairs the surfaces forming side surfaces or side surface portions of the secondary web of the coupling element, while there are mung at the respective other coupling unit side surfaces or side surface portions of the associated Kopplungsausneh-. In a coupling element with pure L-form that is, the inclined side surfaces or side surface portions of the secondary web, together with the end face of a convex surface contour, which delimits the secondary web. Thereby, the freedom from play at the same time robustness of them safely alternate elements of the coupling units is realized. In a manner analogous to the convex surface curve is lung element at a Kopp- formed with degenerate L-shape of the inclined side surfaces or side surface portions and the end faces or end face of the secondary web and contributions of the approach.

The underlying problem of the present invention to counteract noise development is addressed in DE 20 2004 019 475 U1. To solve this problem, this document proposes to provide a match between the panels. As a result of this game but the distances may vary between adjacent panels, which adversely affects the appearance of the panel formed from the panels.

A play-free connection of adjacent panels leaving a gap between the panels is known from DE 10 2005 034 094 A1. The problem according to the invention, to counteract the development of noise is contained in this publication but no sound. Rather, she is interested in the possibility of the panels with high manufacturing tolerances and thus be able to produce time- and cost-effective. In addition to achieving the freedom of play on the main web of the L-form of an additional element is formed, which engages in a recess, which surface in the end face of the side web of the L-shape of the other panel is formed. Thereby, the backlash is realized by the cooperation of relatively fine structures, which evokes the risk of damage to the coupling units. Only the sake of completeness the state of the art also made to DE 10 2004 049 352 A1, DE 199 33 343 A1, DE 202 referenced 05538111 and DE 200 08 708 U1.

With particular advantage, the present invention can be used in siding panels in which the visible surface of the first side surface of the first secondary web adjacent to and / or the first side surface of the second side edge adjacent comprises a running obliquely to the direction of extension of the trim panel surface portion. As already explained above, it comes with such provided with a bevel siding panels to a particularly strong noise. Therefore, the minimum distance according to the invention has a particularly noise-reducing these trim panels. In addition, the caused by the minimum distance gap can be concealed in a particularly simple manner for the viewer's eye through the both sides of the joint plane of the two trim panels provided chamfers. Basically, however, it is also conceivable to mask the gap optically pure, that is, by appropriate selection of the design of the visible surface. In addition, an educated from such cladding panels covering has a pleasant feel, since the chamfers not let even minor differences in height between the visible surface in the adjacent cladding panels noticeably come to light.

It is also advantageous when the end face of the secondary web of a coupling unit and the bottom surface of the coupling recess of the other coupling unit are spaced from each other, while the end face of the secondary web of the other coupling unit and the bottom surface of the coupling recess of a coupling unit abut one another. Of particular advantage, this is, when the coupling unit is the coupling unit, make their surface pairs for the substantially play-free in the direction of extension of the cladding panels engaging, as the wedge engagement of the surface pairs then not by the abutment of the end face of the secondary web to the bottom surface of Kopp- lungsausnehmung is impaired, while at the same time ensures the secondary web of the other coupling unit for adjustment in a direction orthogonal to the panel plane direction.

The adjustment in a direction orthogonal to the panel plane direction may additionally or alternatively also be ensured that, as already explained, on the side remote from the main web side surface of the secondary web of a coupling unit, an approach and in the Kopp- of the other coupling unit lungsausnehmung an associated recess are provided.

To prevent compromising contaminants that are still in laying the trim panels according to the invention to the substrate, the flatness of the installed panels is the

Development of the invention proposes that the trim panel has in its bearing surface on at least one of the side edges adjacent a groove. In this recess, in the jargon called "Dust chamber", the contaminants can then accumulate over time.

The invention can be used with preference for cladding panels which comprise a core of the associated at its the visible surface of the panel surface with a decorative layer is covered, and if desired with associated at its the abutment surface of the panel surface with a counteracting layer is covered. In this case, the core is made of MDF (medium density fiberboard) or HDF (high density fiber board) may be formed. Further, the decorative layer, at least one printed or printable paper layer or, if desired, printed or printable having veneer.

To ensure a stable connection of two adjacent cladding panels achieve, at least one of the two coupling be at least partially integrally formed units with the core. It is particularly advantageous if both the main web and the secondary web the two coupling units are at least partially formed integrally with the core.

According to a further aspect, the invention relates to a lining of a subsurface, in particular a floor, which is composed of a plurality of cladding panels according to the above explanation.

The invention will be explained below with reference to the accompanying drawing of embodiments. It shows:

Figure 1 is a very schematic plan view of a trim panel according to the invention;

Figure 2 is a view taken along line H-Il in Figure 1 taken sectional view of the trim panel according to the invention;

3 shows two interconnecting cladding panels of the configuration shown in Figure 2 according to the invention;

Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3 of two cladding panels of an alternative embodiment;

Figure 5 is a view similar to Figure 3 of two cladding panels of a further alternative embodiment, which may occur at the longitudinal edges of the cladding panels used, for example, and therefore Figure 5 is a view taken along line VV in Figure 1 sectional view taken; and

Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 5 of two cladding panels of another alternative embodiment. 1 shows a trim panel according to the invention is generally indicated by 10. The panel 10 has a rectangular shape and two mutually parallel side edges comprising 12 and 14 of extending in the longitudinal direction L of long sides of the panel 10, and two mutually parallel side edges 16 and 18 of extending in the transverse direction Q short sides of the panel 10. Both pairs 12/14 and 16/18 of side edges are of substantially L-shaped coupling units 20 and 22 (see also Figure 2) provided or 24 and 26th Together with other identically formed panels, the panel 10 is used for covering a subsoil U (see Figure 2).

As best seen from Figure 2, the L-shape of the coupling unit 20 has a main web 30 which extends substantially in the longitudinal direction L and is adjacent to the visible surface 34 of the panel 10, and a secondary web 32 which extends substantially extends in height direction H of the main web 30 away. In an analogous manner, the L-shape of the coupling unit 22 has a main web 36 which extends substantially in the longitudinal direction L and to the visible surface adjacent 34 opposite contact surface 40 of the panel 10, and a secondary web 38 extending substantially in height direction H extends from the main web 36 away.

The main bar 30 and side bar 32 together form a coupling member 42 of the coupling unit 20, while that of the coupling element 42 and a main body 46 of the trim panel 10 delimited recess forms a coupling recess 44 of the coupling unit 20th In an analogous way, the main web 36 and the secondary web 38 form a coupling member 48 of the coupling unit 22, while the area enclosed by the coupling member 48 and the main body 46 recess forms a coupling recess 50 of the coupling unit 22nd the coupling recess More specifically limited 44 from a side surface 32a of the secondary web 32, a side surface 30a of the main web 30 and a side surface portion 46a of the main body 46, and the coupling recess 50 of a side surface 38a of the side web 38, a side surface 36a of the main bar 36 and a side surface portion 46b of the main body limited 46th

In figure 2 is further shown that the trim panel 10 comprises a core 52 which may be formed, for example, MDF or HDF and associated at its the visible surface 34 surface 52 associated with a decorative layer 54 and at its the abutment surface 40 surface 52b with a counteracting may be provided 56th Both the decorative layer 54 and the counteracting layer 56 can be formed of one or more resin impregnated paper layers, wherein the or the uppermost

Paper layer of the decorative layer 54 may be printed with a desired decor or printing. Alternatively, the decorative layer 54 may as well by a may be formed, if desired, printed or printable, veneer, cork, linoleum or prefabricated parquet. Preferably, both the main ribs 30 and 36 and the side webs 32 and 38 are formed substantially in one piece from the material of the core 52nd

In this connection it should also be noted that the visible surface is not formed 34 completely from the decorative layer 54 in the embodiment of Figure 2, but that in this embodiment the trim panel 10 at its two side edges 16 and 18 respectively with a chamfer 56 and 58 is formed, which extends into the material of the core 52 and is also visible to the eye of the viewer and is therefore attributable to the visible surface 34th

In Figure 3, two trained interconnected identical cladding panels are shown 10 and 10 ', both of which have the structure shown in FIG. 2 Due to the identical construction, the same reference numerals in Figure 3 for the elements of the two panels have been spent comparable regardless of whether they belong to the panel 10 or the panel 10 '. In addition, in Figure 3 has been omitted for reasons of clarity to the illustration of the decorative layer 54 and the counteracting 56th In the example shown in Figure 3 connected state of the trim panels 10 and 10 "engages the coupling member 42 of the right in Figure 3 the panel 10 into the coupling recess 50 of the left in Figure 3 panel 10 ', and engages the coupling member 48 of the panel 10' in the coupling recess 44 of the panel 10 a. Here, the backlash of the two panels 10 and 10 'with respect to a Relativerlagerung in their direction of extension, that is, in this case in their longitudinal direction L, (by the interaction of the surface pairs 32b / 46b and 32a / 38a see Figure 2) obtained while the surfaces 38b and 46a as well as the surfaces 16 and 18 (see Figure 2) are spaced from each other.

In particular, the distance d between the two side edges 16 and 18, a minimum value of about 0.1 mm. By this minimum distance can be ensured that the two side edges 16 and 18 of the panels 10, 10 'do not rub against each other at a Relativerlagerung in height direction H and thus produce noises. In order to prevent 32b / 46b and 32a / 38a of noise in the area of ​​surface pairs, these run α relative to the height direction H under a preparatory voted angle whose value is between about 3 ° and about 70 °, preferably at about 15 ° ,

To be able / enable a close fit of the surface pairs 32b / 46b and 32a, 38a, the bottom also a distance point 36a of the coupling recess 50 and the end face 32c of the coupling member 42 of the two panels 10, 10 in the connected state 'D from each other. In contrast, the end face 38c of the coupling element is 48 on the bottom 30a of the coupling recess 44 in order for a height adjustment of the two panels to be able to provide 10 and 10 "relative to each other.

The two panels in the connected state 10 and 10 * is the two bevels 56 and 58 in particular, the function of the gap d formed by the spacing 60, and any differences in height between the two panels 10 and 10 'to mask optically.

It should be added that bordering on the contact surface 40 of the panel 10 zend both in the region of the side edge 16 and in the region of the side edge 18 inclined surfaces 46c and are provided 46d which form 10 and 10 'a dust chamber 62 of two identical panels in the connected state , In this dust chamber 62 possible exploiting Dende on the substrate impurities with time can collect arrival, so that they do not interfere with the planar support of the panels on the ground to when installing the panels.

In Figure 4, an alternative embodiment is shown, which corresponds essentially to the embodiment according to figures 2 and 3. FIG. Analogous parts are therefore provided in Figure 4 with the same reference numerals as in Figures 2 and 3, but increased is by the number 100. In addition, the embodiment will be described according to Figure 4 only insofar as it differs from the embodiment according to figures 2 and 3 different, otherwise herewith expressly made to the description thereof.

The panel 110 and the panels of identical design 110, 110 'according to Figure 4 differs from the panel 10 according to Figures 2 and 3 mainly in that the surface pairs, which for the backlash of the two panels 110 and 110' with respect to a Relativerlagerung in their extension direction, ie in their longitudinal direction L, care, not to the coupling element 142 of the panel 110 and the coupling recess 150 of the panel 110 ', but the coupling member 148 of the panel 110' and the coupling recess 144 of the panel are formed 110th ren For the same reason as in the embodiment according to the Figu- 2 and 3 and the bottom of the coupling recess 144 and the end face of the secondary web 138 of the coupling member 148 of the two panels in the connected state are therefore 110 and 110 'spaced from one another, while the coupling element 142 rests on the bottom of the coupling recess 150 with the end face of its secondary web 132nd As with the embodiment shown in Figures 2 and 3, the two side edges 1 16 and 118 of the two panels in the connected state to 1 10 and 110 'a gap 160 of the minimum length d. In addition, in this embodiment, a dust chamber 162 is provided.

In figure 5 a further embodiment is shown which essentially corresponds to the embodiments shown in Figures 2 to. 4 Analogous parts are therefore provided in Figure 5 with the same reference numerals as in Figures 2 and 3, but increased is by 200. In addition, the embodiment will be described according to Figure 5 only insofar as it differs from the embodiment according to figures 2 and 3 different, otherwise herewith expressly made to the description thereof.

Also in the embodiment according to Figure 5, the coupling elements are formed substantially L-shaped 242 and 248, the coupling member 242 However, degenerate L-shaped, so that the coupling elements 242 and 248 comprising coupling units 224 and 226 (for joining by interengagement panning Angling) are suitable. As thus configured coupling units are arranged 224 and 226 with preference to the long side of the panels 210, 210 ', corresponding to figure 5 of a älngs the line VV in Figure 1 taken sectional view.

In particular, the degenerate L-shaped coupling member 242 adjacent to the main rib 230 and the side web 232 further comprises a projection 264 which projects from the free end of the secondary web 232 on the remote from the main web page 230. In the example shown in Figure 5, the connected state of two identical panels 210, 210 '264 engages the mixture into an associated recess 266 of the coupling recess 250th The backlash of the panels 210, 210 'with respect to a Relativerlagerung in its longitudinal direction L is achieved as in the embodiment according to Figures 2 and 3 by the interaction of pairs of surfaces of the coupling member 242 and the coupling recess 250th In contrast to the embodiment according to Figures 2 and 3, however, the coupling element 242 rests on the bottom of the coupling recess 250 and is not disposed of with this distance. In contrast to the coupling member 242 the coupling element 248 pure L-shaped, comprising a primary side bar 236 and a secondary web 238 and engages in a coupling recess 244, the end face of the coupling member is disposed 248 apart from the bottom surface of the coupling recess 244th Considering the gap 260, the minimum distance d and the dust chamber 262, the embodiment according to Figure 5 again corresponds to the embodiment according to figures 2 and 3. FIG.

In addition, the embodiment will be described according to Figure 6 only insofar as it differs from the embodiments described above, is hereby otherwise expressly made to the description thereof.

With respect to the basic configuration of the panel 310 with a degenerate L-shaped coupling member 342, and a purely L-shaped coupling member 348, the embodiment is in accordance with Figure 6 the embodiment according to Figure 5. With regard to the Erzie- development of freedom from play two linked identically constructed panels 310, 310 'with respect to a Relativerlagerung in their longitudinal direction L, however, it corresponds to the embodiment according to FIG 4. in particular, this freedom from play, in the embodiment according to figure 6 by the interaction of the pairs of faces of the coupling member 348 and the coupling recess 344 achieved. However, not only the end face of the coupling member 342 is in the embodiment according to figure 6 on the bottom surface of the coupling recess 350, but also the end face of the coupling member 348 on the bottom surface of the coupling recess 344. However, in principle it is also in the embodiment according to Figure 6 conceivable that the end face of the coupling element 348 is disposed on the bottom surface of the coupling recess 344 at a distance, as indicated by dashed lines in FIG. 6 Considering the gap 360 of the minimum distance d and the dust chamber 362, the embodiment according to Figure 6 again corresponds to the embodiment according to figures 2 and 3.
