Description:
FASTENING SYSTEM OF ONE OR MORE PANELLINGS TO A BUILDING COMPONENT, IN PARTIUCULAR FOR THE MAKING AND INSTALLATION OF CANTILEVER ROOFS, ROOFS OR THE LIKE

DESCRIPTION

The object of the present invention is a system for fastening a panelling to a building component, in particular for the making and installation of cantilever roofs, roofs and the like.

Normally, said building component comprises partitions, walls or generally any support surface arranged substantially vertical.

The invention, therefore, falls within the building field, particularly in the sector of architecture.

Of course, nothing prevents the application of the invention to be extended also to fields different from the building one.

It is known that for the installation of panels on support building structures and/or surfaces to be delimited or that need protection metal section bars are often used, preferably of aluminium, which can be anchored to the building component and adapted to serve as a seat and support for said panels, retaining them in a substantially horizontal or oblique set-up.

These known systems, despite being widespread and used for a long time, are not free from difficulties in the positioning and installation of the panels.

The operator, in fact, operates in rather uncomfortable or dangerous places and positions: very often, in order to carry out the mounting of the panellings, the installer must keep the section bar on which the panelling has already been inserted and fastened, lifted, and provide for the fixing thereof to the building element using special equipment, such as aerial platforms or ladders, which make the mounting even more difficult due to the balance condition that the operator has to maintain and seek at risk of his own safety.

In fact the operator, or the operators, must support the weight of the panelling and at the same time fix the section bar to the wall, keeping his balance on ladders or platforms.

It is evident that such installation operation is articulated and cumbersome, and greatly increases the risk of work accidents or injuries.

The main object of the present invention is to obviate the drawbacks outlined above by providing a system for fastening a panelling to a building component, in particular for the making and installation of cantilever roofs, roofs or the like.

A further object of the present invention, at least for one or more executive variants, is to provide a system that facilitates the fastening of at least one panelling to a building component.

A further object of the present invention, at least for one or more executive variants, is to provide a system for fastening panellings of easy and comfortable installation.

A further object of the present invention, at least for one or more executive variants, is to provide a system for fastening panellings that allows the installer to operate in safety conditions.

This and other objects, which shall appear clear hereinafter, are achieved with a system for fastening a panelling to a building component, illustrated in the following description and in the annexed claims that constitute an integral part of the same description.

Further features of the present invention shall be better highlighted by the following description of a preferred embodiment, in accordance with the patent claims and illustrated, purely by way of a non-limiting example, in the annexed drawing tables, in which:

- Figure 18 shows a section view of the installation to a wall of a panelling by means of the fastening system according to the present invention, said panelling being substantially oblique.

The features of the invention are now described using the references in the figures.

It is also noted that any dimensional and spatial term (such as "lower", "upper", "inner", "outer", "front", "rear", vertical, horizontal and the like) refers to the position according to which substantially the elements are arranged in real conditions.

Without any limiting intent, for description simplicity, hereinafter the term panelling is to be considered as any substantially plate-shaped structural element adapted to define a cantilever roof or a roof such as for example sheets, polycarbonate sheets, glass sheets, wood, etc.

Hereinafter, the term cantilever roof, without an limiting intent, is to be intended as any type of infrastructure, of any material and shape, adapted to provide a shelter from weather conditions (rain, snow, sun, etc.).

As clearly shown in the accompanying figures, 1 indicates, as a whole, the fastening system of a section bar 20 for the connection of one or more panellings 3 to a building element 9 according to the present invention.

Generally said building element 9 may consist in a wall, made, in whole or in part, of masonry work and or metalwork and/or wood or other.

In the figures, provided by way of a non-limiting example, the building element 9 may consist of a wall and the bearing section bar 20 serves as a support of one or more panellings 3 that are part of the cantilever roof provided for such wall 9. Said fastening system 1 comprises said bearing section bar 20 and a support element 10, said section bar 20 being cooperating with said support 10.

Said support element 10, illustrated in Fig. 1 , 2, 3 and 4, comprises a bracket 10 provided with a plurality of holes 100 allowing the fixing thereof to the wall 9, by suitable fixing means such as screws, threaded pins, blocks or the like.

For example in Fig. 2 said bracket 10 is fixed to pins 51 anchored to the wall 9 which serves as coupling means, while in Fig. 3 said bracket is fixed to said wall 9 by means of suitable fixing screws 50.

Figs. 2 and 3 show, without any limiting intent, two possible anchoring methods of said bracket 10 to the wall 9; nothing prevents from employing equivalent means inferable and implementable by the man skilled in the art according to the prior art. Said bracket 10 and said bearing section bar 20 may comprise a section bar preferably made of one of the metal alloys (generally, aluminium alloys) suitable for obtaining section bars but nothing prevents it, if the structural requirements allows it, from being made of other material, e.g. wood or PVC.

The bracket 10 may be provided with at least a first projection 101, preferably located at the upper end of the section bar by which said bracket 10 is made, at least a first cavity 103, wherein suitable fixing means 120 are housed and at least a second cavity 104, wherein suitable fixing means 110 are housed , where said first and second cavities extend substantially for the entire length of the bracket 10, so as to serve as a guiding groove for the positioning of said fixing means 1 10 and 120 (Fig. 4).

In particular said fixing means 1 10 and 120 are capable of sliding in sad first cavity 103 and said second cavity 104, and may comprise hex or square head screws or suitable threaded pins.

In particular said fixing means 110 and 120 have geometries and dimensions allowing the sliding within said cavities 103 and 104, and prevent the rotation thereof with respect to said cavities 103 and 104.

For example, in case of hex or square head screws, the shape and dimensions of the screw head allow the translation but not the rotation of the same screw in said cavities 103 and 104.

On said bracket 10 there can be fixed:

- at least a first plate 11, positioned and locked to the bracket 10 by means of said fixing means 110 through tightening nuts 11 1 (Fig. 10);

at least a second plate 12, positioned and locked to the bracket 10 by means of said fixing means 120 through tightening nuts 121 (Fig. 9).

Said first plate 1 1 , suitably shaped, comprises a slot 1 12 within which said fixing means 110 can slide, and at least one projection 102 that serves, as it will be seen, as an anchoring means for said section bar 20.

Said second plate 12, suitably shaped, comprises at least one through hole 122 for the passage of said fixing means 120, and at least one edge 123. It is also noted that the system 1 may provide and employ a plurality of said first and second plates 1 1 and 12, cooperating with the respective fixing means 1 10 and 120.

In particular, said first and second plates 1 1 and 12 may be positioned along the longitudinal development of said first and second cavities 103 and 104, so as to provide and make a first array of plates 11 and a second array of plates 12, said arrays being substantially misaligned and staggered to each other.

As it will be detailed later, said bracket 10 may be used by the operator as a jig to establish and arrange the holes to be made on the wall 9 for the fixing means and/or the coupling means.

The operator, therefore, having established and made said holes, fixes said bracket 10 to the wall 9 and proceeds by lifting the panelling 3 and approaching the section bar 20 to the support bracket 10.

The bearing section bar 20 has a substantially U-shaped section with an anchoring base 200 and a first 201 and second 202 wing, opposed and substantially parallel to each other, at least in their inner walls.

Between said wings 201 , 202 and the base 200 a cavity 203 is thus made that serves as a seat for at least part of the lower end 30 of the panelling 3 that projects outwards for its remaining part.

Said section bar 20 may further comprise adjustment means 4 that allow retaining the panelling 3, inserted inside the cavity 203, in a substantially horizontal and oblique set-up.

More precisely, said adjustment means 4 may comprise elements capable of reciprocally acting on the opposite faces of the panelling 3, locking it in said cavity 203.

Moreover, said adjusting means 4 are suitably designed to impart a controllable rotation around a fulcrum F to the lower end 30 of the panelling 3 (Figs. 17 and 18).

Similar adjusting means 4 have already been described in the patent application No. 202015000020889 in the name of the same Applicant, but what is found in this description is the fact that the fastening system according to the present invention allows integrating and using advantageously said adjusting means. Said rotation allows adjusting the inclination of the panelling 3 relative to the bottom 200 of the section bar 20.

This is evident by observing Figs. 17 and 18 where it can be deduced that:

in Fig. 17 the panelling 3 is substantially horizontal, i.e., its laying plane is substantially orthogonal to the wall 9, and the angle a may vary, for example, between 1 ÷ 4°;

in Fig. 18 the panelling 3 is substantially oblique, i.e., its laying plane is substantially not orthogonal relative to the wall 9, and the angle a may vary, for example, between 5 ÷ 45°.

With reference to Fig. 18 such inclination of the panelling 3 is obtained by means of suitable technical devices and modifications of the section bar 20 or of the bracket 10 falling within the same inventive concept, not further described or illustrated herein since they are inferable by the man skilled in the art.

Advantageously the section bar 20 may be further provided with locking means 40, such as for example pins, bolts, screws or the like, adapted to keep the panelling 3 constrained inside the cavity 203.

In this case the panelling 3 is provided with suitable through holes allowing the passage of said locking means 40.

In Figs. 17 and 18 the panelling 3 is inclined downwards; obviously nothing prevents, other than what described and illustrated, said panelling 3 from being inclined upwards, so as to meet any constructive need.

According to the invention the base 200 of said section bar 20 is provided with at least a first appendix 220, arranged in the proximity of the wing 201 in extension of the same, and of at least a second appendix 221, arranged in the proximity of the wing 202.

According to a preferred embodiment variant, each appendix 220 and 221 is respectively provided with a suitable cavity 210 and 21 1.

Said cavities 210 and 21 1 cooperate respectively with the projections 101 of the bracket 10 and 102 of the plate 1 1 , in particular said first projection 101 cooperates and releasably couples with said first cavity 210, while said second projection 102 cooperates and releasably couples with said second cavity 211. According to a possible executive variant, said coupling provides a shape coupling, where said projections serves as a pin and said cavities as a guiding seat for the rotation movement; such coupling eases the relative sliding of the surfaces of said components, useful during the mounting steps of the panelling as it will be illustrated below.

In particular said projections 101 and 102 have a substantially convex profile and a substantially circular section, while said cavities 210 and 211 have a substantially concave profile, where said respective profiles couple reciprocally to each other.

With reference to Figs. 1 1, 12 and 13 a first installation process of the system according to the present invention is now provided, by way of a non-limiting example, wherein the operator proceeds according to the following possible steps:

- fix said bracket 10 to the wall 9 (Fig. 2 or 3);

couple and fix the section bar 20 to the end 30 of the panel 3 intended for said coupling, or vice versa;

- install and fix said first and second plate 11 and 12 to said bracket 10 (Fig. 1 1);

couple the projection 102 of the first plate 11 with the second cavity 21 1 of the wing 202 (Fig. 1 1);

rotate said section bar 20 upwards with respect to said coupling that serves as a fulcrum, until bringing the first cavity 210 of the wing 202 above the projection 101 of the bracket 10 (Fig. 12);

loosen the tightening nuts 1 1 1 of the first plate 1 1 so as to slide said first plate 1 1 downwards, and as a result the section bar 20, so as to approach and couple said first cavity 210 with said projection 101 (Fig. 13);

- tighten said nuts 1 1 1, so as to lock all the components (Fig. 13). Advantageously, a suitable covering and finishing case 8 may be provided and installed (Fig. 13) conveniently provided with suitable openings 80 adapted to receive and retain sealing means or seals (not illustrated).

As said, the downward movement of the first plate 11 is made possible by the slot 112, which allows translating said plate 11 with respect to the relative fixing means 1 10.

Said first plate 11 is positioned and fixed such that the fixing means 1 10 is in the proximity of the lower part of said slot 112, such that the plate 11 is located as high as possible relative to the translation allowed by said slot 112.

Said maximum height position allows positioning the first cavity 210 of the wing 202 above the projection 101 of the bracket 10; the next downwards translation, due to the unscrewing of the tightening nuts 111, of the said first plate 11, and consequently the section bar 20, allows approaching and coupling said first cavity 210 with said projection 101.

During the above described rotation of said section bar 2, the edge 123 of the second plate 12 serves as a guide for said rotation movement, keeping said second cavity 211 in contact with said second projection 102.

In particular said second plate 12 prevents said second appendix 221 from uncoupling from said projection 102.

The rotation movement of the section bar 20 is performed by lifting the panel 3, acting advantageously on the part of the panel 3 projecting outwards of the said section bar 20.

The coupling between said second projection 102 and said second cavity 21 1 provides a support and anchoring point for the movement of said panelling 3 during the installation procedure, easing the operator in the lifting and rotation step of said panelling 3.

In particular said coupling keeps said panelling 3 in a stable hanging position (Fig. 11), allowing the operator to move freely so as to equip himself and set up the next installation steps in complete safety.

The operator, in fact, once positioned and thus substantially hung the section bar 20 to the bracket 10 by means of said coupling, is not forced to check the stability of the positioning, guaranteed by the cooperation of the parts, and therefore can move as needed.

Advantageously the system according to the present invention allows the operator to use different and known grasping and lifting means, such as for example lift trucks, lifts, or the like; this enables the operator to work safely, benefiting from lifting means that prevents him from manually maneuver heavy and bulky objects.

This allows protecting and safeguard the safety of the operators, by limiting the risk of accidents and injuries.

Further, the rotation of the section bar 20 relative to the bracket 10, in accordance with what illustrated, allows a gradual and progressive lifting of the panel 3, enabling the operator to control the elevation of said panel 3 and the correct positioning thereof.

The operator, in fact, may stop the lifting of the panel 3, by acting on the lifting means, by changing and adjusting the position and set-up of said panel 3 as needed.

Alternatively, it is possible to provide a second installation process, with reference to Figs. 14, 15 and 16, wherein the operator proceeds according to the following possible steps:

- fix said bracket 10 to the wall 9 (Fig. 2 or 3);

couple and fix the section bar 20 to the end 30 of the panel 3 intended for said coupling, or vice versa;

couple the projection 101 of the bracket 10 with the first cavity 210 of the wing 201 (Fig. 14);

install and fix the first plate 1 1 to said bracket 10, by coupling the projection 102 with said second cavity 211 of the wing 202 (Fig. 15);

tighten said nuts 11 1 , so as to lock all the components.

Advantageously, a suitable covering and finishing case 8 may be provided and installed (Fig. 16). In this embodiment variant the second plate 12 is optional, since there is no rotation movement of the section bar 20; thus, only the fixing 120 and clamping 121 means may be installed, which serves as a stop for the section bar 20.

The clamping means 121 may optionally also serve as adjustment means for positioning the section bar 20 more accurately.

In fact, with particular reference to Fig. 14, it is deduced that the second appendix 221 of the said section bar 20 insists on said clamping means 121 ; thus, by screwing or unscrewing said clamping means 121 it is possible to adjust the position of the section bar 20.

The fastening system according to the present invention allows providing a reference and a support point for the operator that has to install the cantilever roof.

Generally, in order to proceed with the installation of a generic cantilever roof, the operator has to prepare and make holes on the wall 9 for the fixing means or for the coupling means that allow locking said cantilever roof to the wall.

The system according to the present invention, allows the operator to easily use said support bracket 10 as a jig for establishing and arranging said holes on the wall 9, guaranteeing an optimal alignment and positioning accuracy.

The bracket 10, in fact, is more manageable and easy to move with respect to a panelling, since it has lower overall dimensions and weight, so that the operator may operate with less effort and greater safety.

The operator, therefore, having established and made said holes, fixes said bracket 10 to the wall and proceeds by lifting the panelling 3 and approaching the section bar 20 to the support bracket 10.

The support bracket 10, being already fixed to the wall 9, eases the operator providing him a reference during the movement of the panelling, by indicating him where and how to direct the section bar 20 to place it on the bracket 10, in accordance with the procedures described above, i.e. by coupling said second projection 102 with said second cavity 211 (Fig. 1 1) or by coupling said first projection 101 with said first cavity 210 (Fig. 14). As already anticipated, the operator is thus facilitated in the correct positioning and installing of said cantilever roof.

The fastening system according to the present invention may further provide finishing cases 13 to be fixed, by interference and/or snapwise, or by means of other equivalent known systems, on the wings 201 and 202 and/or on at least a part of the outer outline of the section bar 20, providing an increased aesthetic appeal.

Said casings 13 may be provided with suitable seals that allow sealing the cavity 203, preserving it from infiltrations of rainwater, humidity and dirt.

Nothing prevents that the section bar 20 may be provided with suitable openings 230 adapted to receive and retain sealing means or seals (not illustrated).

The fastening system 1, moreover, by means of the adjustment of the inclination of the panelling 3, allows connecting side by side one or more panellings compensating for any gradients and planarity defects of the installation surfaces of the building element whereon said system 1 is fixed.

The adjustment means 4, in fact, besides retaining and locking said panelling 3, allow compensating said planarity defects, allowing to achieve and keep the desired laying set-up for said panellings.

In particular said section bar 1 allows adjusting the set-up and laying inclination of said panellings 3 relative to the surface of the building element whereon it is fixed.

The fastening system according to the invention also allows the possibility of installing a light source (e.g., LED) for the lighting of the panelling 3, particularly useful and scenographic in case of glazed panellings 2.

For example said light source may be positioned inside the section bar 20, between its bottom 200 and the panelling 3, or externally on the wings 201 and 202 of said section bar 20.

It is clear that in the practical embodiment of the invention numerous modifications and further variants may be provided, all falling within the same inventive concept; all the various components and details previously described may also be replaced by technically equivalent elements.

In short the essential general features of the system according to the present invention can be summarised as follows:

the system comprises at least a support element 10 and a section bar 20 couplable with a panelling 3, advantageously with an end 30 of said panelling 3; - said support element 10 is suitably fixed to the building element, and it is provided with suitable first support means 101 and second support means 102, where said support means 101 and 102 serves as a support for the positioning and fixing of said section bar 20.

The system according to the present invention is characterised by said support element 10, suitably provided with support means 101 and 102 adapted to cooperate with said section bar 20.

As widely described said support element 10 facilitates the installation of a generic cantilever roof and eases the operator in the installation of the same. In accordance to different and viable installation methods, the system according to the present invention may comprise one or more additional components, adapted to allow a correct and safe coupling between the said support element 10 and the said section bar 20.

In the above described variant, by way of a non-limiting example, said additional component comprises a second plate 1 1 that avoids the uncoupling of the parts.
