Description:
"Partition wall"

The invention relates to a partition wall according to the preamble of Claim 1.

A partition wall which comprises a wall element and a stand device is known from DE 20 2015 102 968 Ul, wherein the wall element comprises a multiplicity of tubular bodies, each having a cavity, that are vertically aligned in the room. The invention is based on the object of developing a partition wall which has high flexibility and nevertheless has a high degree of inherent stability and good sound-absorbing properties. Proceeding from the features of the preamble of Claim 1, this object is achieved by the characterizing features of Claim 1. Advantageous and expedient refinements are stated in the dependent claims . It is provided according to the invention that the wall element comprises spacer webs, wherein one of the spacer webs is in each case disposed between neighbouring tubular bodies of the wall element in such a manner that the tubular bodies are aligned so as to be mutually parallel and mutually spaced apart. On account thereof, the wall element of the partition wall has increased flexibility since the former is formed by tubular bodies only in portions. Thus, in particular a curved progression of the wall element that stands vertically in the room is also implementable in the form of an integral and continuous wall element. The core concept of the invention therefore lies in a combination of flexurally compliant portions and of portions having a great sound-absorbing effect and a great stability- imparting effect.

It is also provided that the tubular bodies are configured as hollow profiles, wherein the hollow profiles have an internal cross section that is similar to a circle or is polygonal and in particular hexagonal, and an external cross section that is similar to a circle or is polygonal and in particular hexagonal. On account of internal cross sections and external cross sections, respectively, of this type, a structure of the wall element that has a high bending moment is achieved, such that a permanently crease-free progression of the wall element of the partition wall is ensured, and also a vertical alignment of the wall element across the longitudinal extent of the latter is ensured.

It is provided that the individual spacer webs are each connected by way of opposite edges to the respective neighbouring tubular bodies. A parallel alignment of the neighbouring tubular bodies is guaranteed on account thereof .

It is also provided that the wall element is configured in at least two layers, wherein a first layer forms a front visible side of the wall element, and wherein a second layer forms a rear visible side of the wall element, and wherein the layers in the region of the spacer webs bear on one another in a planar manner and in particular are connected to one another in a planar manner and in particular are adhesively bonded and/or welded and/or sewn to one another. On account thereof, the wall element can be made in an efficient manner from a plurality of tiers of a planar material. In particular, webs or sheets from felt or plastic or cardboard or leather or metal, or from a sandwich construction from at least two of these materials, are provided as material herein .

It is also provided that the partition wall as a stand device comprises at least two floor supports, wherein each floor support comprises a foot and a holder, and wherein each holder is connected to the wall element. On account thereof, a partition wall which is held by floor supports to an arbitrary extent can be constructed using a minimum of different components.

It is furthermore provided that the holder of the floor support comprises a vertical stand. An optimal support of the wall element in the room is ensured on account thereof .

It is provided that the vertical stand is adapted to a cavity of one of the tubular bodies of the wall element in such a manner that the tubular body acquires an alignment of the vertical stand when the vertical stand is push-fitted into said tubular body. On account thereof, a vertical alignment of the wall element in the region of the floor supports thereof is ensured, wherein a vertical alignment of the wall element between the floor supports in this instance is guaranteed by the above-mentioned inherent stability of the wall element.

It is also provided that the holder of the floor support is equipped with at least two vertical stands that are aligned so as to be mutually parallel. On account thereof, the alignment of the wall element can be influenced to a greater extent by means of the floor support .

In the case of holders having a plurality of vertical stands it is provided

- that either at least two of the vertical stands are adapted in such a manner to the cavities of the tubular bodies of the wall element that are connected to said vertical stands that each of the connected tubular bodies acquires an alignment of the push-fitted vertical stand, such that the wall element can be aligned or stabilized, respectively, across a greater amount of distance;

- or that at least two of the vertical stands are disposed outside the cavities of the tubular bodies at a spacing equal to a thickness of one of the spacer webs in such a manner that said vertical stands upon being push-fitted receive therebetween one of the spacer webs of the wall element in a clamping manner, such that there is no engagement in the cavities of individual wall elements, and the wall element on account thereof in terms of the sound-absorbing properties thereof is influenced to the minimum extent possible;

- or that at least one first of the vertical stands is adapted to a cavity of one of the tubular bodies of the wall element in such a manner that the tubular body acquires an alignment of the vertical stand when the vertical stand is push-fitted into said tubular body, and at least one second of the vertical stands is disposed outside the cavities of the tubular bodies and in particular is disposed in such a manner that said at least one second of the vertical stands bears on the wall element so as to be neighbouring to the at least one push-fitted vertical stand, such that the advantages of an inward bearing and of an outward bearing of the holder on the wall element can be combined.

It is furthermore provided that at least one of the vertical stands comprises at least one coupling means. On account thereof, the potential for the vertical stand and thus the floor support to not only be used exclusively for aligning the wall element in the room but for at least one additional function to be imparted to said vertical stand and thus to the floor support is achieved.

It is provided in particular that the vertical stand is plug-fitted into the cavity of one of the tubular bodies of the wall element, and that at least one of the coupling means of said vertical stand is disposed in the region of the cavity into which said vertical stand is plug- fitted, and that the tubular body into which the vertical stand is plug-fitted has at least one clearance which is aligned to one of the coupling means, the coupling means being accessible from the outside by way of said clearance. On account thereof, it is possible for the one or multiple coupling means of the vertical stand of the floor support to be then utilized also when the vertical stand is plug-fitted into the wall element and the one or multiple coupling means is/are located in one of the cavities of the wall element.

It is also provided that the partition wall comprises at least one add-on part, wherein each add-on part comprises at least one flange and by way of the latter, in particular so as to pass through one of the clearances of one of the tubular bodies of the wall element, is connected to one of the coupling means of one of the vertical stands. On account thereof, add-on parts can be securely fastened in the region of the wall element by means of the vertical stands.

It is provided in particular that the add-on part is configured as an arm and in particular as a holding arm, or as a support foot, or as a cross stay, or as a diagonal stay. On account thereof, the partition wall is extended in a various ways and adapted to particular requirements. It is also provided that the partition wall comprises at least one furniture part, wherein the furniture part is connected directly to at least one of the vertical stands and/or indirectly, by means of at least one add-on part, to at least one of the vertical stands. On account thereof, the scope of functionality of the wall element can still be extensively expanded, wherein further stabilizing of the partition wall is also performed by the furniture parts.

It is furthermore provided that a plurality of spacer webs of the wall element and in particular all spacer webs of the wall element are elastically deformable and in particular flexural about bending axes that run parallel with longitudinal axes of the tubular bodies, and/or that the wall element at a plurality of and in particular at all transition points between the spacer webs and the adjacent tubular bodies is elastically deformable and in particular flexural about bending axes that run parallel with longitudinal axes of the tubular bodies. On account thereof, a curved progression of the partition wall can be readily implemented, since the partition wall in this way has a multiplicity of bending axes which can be utilized.

It is furthermore provided that the partition wall comprises at least one head, wherein the head comprises at least one anchor and one adapter, wherein the adapter is connected to the anchor or anchors, respectively, and

- wherein the anchor or anchors, respectively,
