  • Patent number: 7316203
    Abstract: A collapsible cage, which comprises a bottom that is surmounted by, and associated with, grid-like walls mutually connected by connection comprising, for each corner, a corner joint constituted by a main element, with a concave corner body in which positioning seats are provided for three converging grid-like walls, and at least one locking element for the three grid-like walls in the positioning seats. The locking element is formed monolithically with the main element and is further deformable in order to be arranged in the locking configuration.

  • Patent number: 6959666
    Abstract: A corner joint particularly for modular cages, which is monolithic and has a substantially L-shaped body that comprises abutments inside the corner region, the transverse cross-sections of its arms being substantially H-shaped. Two channels with curled-in edges for each one of the arms are thus formed. The channels are open outward, on each arm, in opposite directions, and are capable of accommodating with reversible interlocking a total of four converging walls. The corner joint is symmetrical with respect to a central plane that is perpendicular to the converging walls.
