CLAIMS
1. A device comprising a removable cloth for the protection of parked vehicles, provided with a hollow space, characterized in: a rectangular cloth (1), waterproof or of plastic material, separated into adjacent foursided portions (ABC) due to the presence of transversal bags (2, 3) bound in the lower part to said cloth and filled up with the coresponding shapes (4); two shapes (4) of foamrubber or other suitable material, that may be inserted into said transversal bags (2,3) with the function of distancer between said cloth (1) and the body of the vehice (AB) so as to form aircambers (5) for the thermic insulation; two end reinforcements (6, 7) for said cloth (1) consisting of tubes and rods of plastic materials for maintaining said cloth (1) stretched; a plurality of tierods placed in correspondence of the edges of the central quadrilateral (A) of said cloth (1), consisting of a resistant metal chase and ending up in a stop element (9) like a small ball or similar, forming an efficient antitheft for the whole cloth once each of said small balls is inserted inside the vehice by means of the closing of the doors of said vehicle (AV); a plurality of end rods (10), with hooks (11), for the application to the bumpers and to other parts of the vehicle's body; a plurality of eyelets and hooks, or snapfasteners (12), placed all along the edge of said cloth (1) for the eventual application of the lateral accessories (13).
2. A device according to claim 1 characterized in the accessory cloths (13) that may be laterally applied by means of eyelets and hooks or snapfasteners corresponding to those mentioned with numeral (12) and placed al along the edges of cloth (1) , so as to obtain also the lateral closing and protection of the vehicle (AV) .
3. A device according to claims 1 and 2, characterized in that said transversal bags (2, 3) and the corresponding shapes (4) are devided into two parts for encumbrance reasons.
4. A device according to claim 1 characterized in that parts of tubes or shapes, telescopic or even not, of plastic or metal materials or of inflatable structures are used like distancers.
Description:
DESCRIPTION "A DEVICE FOR THE PROTECTION OF PARKED VEHICLES COMPRISING A REMOVABLE CLOTH WITH A HOLLO SPACE"

The present invention concerns a device comprising a removable cloth for the protection, with a hollow space obtained between the cloth and the body, of parked vehicles from atmospheric and polluting agents.

The prior art as well as the marketing provide a plurality of cloths of different kinds that may be applied to vehicles, which are either too complex and expensive or adhere to the body of the vehicle and therefore transfer the heat by contact. All known systems are furthermore easily removable by thieves or similar.

It is the aim of the present invention to solve all above mentioned disadvantages of the known vehicle's coverings by means of an easy, cheap device that can be quickly applied and provided with antitheft means.

The -aim set forth is reached by means of the device according to the present invention, comprising a removable rectangular cloth separated into three four- sided portions by means of two transversal bags bound to the cloth in the lower part thereof in correspondence to the body of the vehicle, and that will receive, at the moment of application, correspondent shapes of spongy and elastic material that will maintain said cloth lifed from said body thus forming an air-chamber acting as insulator between the cloth and the body. Beyond additive means for the lateral protection of the vehicle and means for hooking said cloth to the body of the vehicle, the device according to the present invention provides also means for antitheft protection that are applied boundly to said cloth.

The advantages obtained by means of the device according to the present invention mainly consist in that said device represents, with a minimum of transport and storage encumbrance, an air-chamber insulating structure, once it has been applied, for the protection of the parked vehicles from atmospheric and polluting agents and furthermore is provided with an extremely easy but efficient antitheft means.

The device according to the present invention will be explained more in detail hereinbelow according to the enclosed drawings in which a preferred embodiment is shown.

Figure 1 shows a plant view of a device according to the present invention, comprising a removable cloth for the protection of parking vehicles from atmospheric and polluting agents.

Figure 2 shows an axonometric view of a component having a rectangular structure, and applied onto a vehicle.

Figure 3 shows the application of the device according to the present invention comprising the lateral protection means.

The enclosed figures show a device comprising a removable cloth for the protection of parked vehicles AV from atmospheric and polluting agents, mainly consisting of:

- a rectangular cloth 1, waterresistant or eventually of plastic material, separated in adjacent four-sided portions A-B-C due to the presence of transversal bags 2, 3 bound to said cloth at the lower part thereof and filled up with the correspondent shapes 4;

- two shapes 4 of foam-rubber or any other suitable material, that may be inserted into said transversal bags 2, 3 having the function of distancing said cloth 1 from the body of the vehicle AV so as to form air- chambers 5 for the thermic insulation;

- two end reinforcements 6, 7 for said cloth 1, consisting of tubes or rods of plastic material for maintaining said cloth 1 stretched;

- a plurality of tie-rods 8 provided in correspondence with the edges of the central quadrilateral A of cloth 1, consisting of a resistant metal chase and ending up in a stop element 9 like a small ball or similar, forming an efficient antitheft means for the whole cloth once said small balls are inserted inside the vehicle through the closing of the doors of vehicle AV;

- a plurality of end ropes 10 with hooks 11 for the application to the bumper and other parts of the vehicle's body;

- a plurality of eyelets and hooks, or snap-fasteners 12, placed all along the edge of said cloth 1 for the eventual application of the lateral accessories 13.

In the variant according to figure 3 it is provided that the protection structure is completed by accessory cloths 13 which, by means of eyelets and hooks or snap-

fasteners corresponding to said elements 12, provided all along said cloth 1, are laterally applied so as to obtain also the lateral closing and protection of the parked vehicle AV.

In possible further variants said transversal bags 2, 3 and the corresponding shapes 4 may be devided in two parts for encumbrance reasons.

For what concerns the distancers, instead of the shapes 4 of spongy and elastic material already described, the device according to the present invention provides the application, for the same purposes, of tubes and shapes, that might be telescopic or even not, of plastic or metal materials or even inflatable structures.
