  • Patent number: 11147370
    Abstract: The invention relates to a rack comprising at least one longitudinal profile, which can be vertically aligned, to which retaining means can be attached, into which trays, cabinet elements or other shelf elements can be inserted, which retaining means are held in clamping fashion via clamping jaws on the longitudinal profile. The clamping jaws are attached to a first plate-shaped based body and to a second plate-shaped base body, which are arranged lying one atop the other and can be moved against each other, guided by guiding means, and as a result the clamping jaws can be tensioned against lateral surfaces of the longitudinal profile. A rotation axle of an eccentric for moving the clamping jaws is rotatably mounted in the first plate-shaped base body and the eccentric body protrudes into a recess of the second plate-shaped base body. A simply designed retaining means is thus obtained which can be easily clamped on the longitudinal profile.

  • Patent number: 10646039
    Abstract: A storage compartment is formed from a blank made of sheet metal and comprises a base part and edge regions surrounding the base part, which edge regions are bent upwards by about 90° with respect to the base part. The upwardly bent edge regions are equipped with receiving and holding means, in each of which a plate-shaped element is insertable and is held. One each of a first edge region and a second edge region form a first side surface and a second side surface. The first side surface serves as a supporting surface for the plate-shaped element. The second side surface covers the frontal surface of the plate-shaped element. Furthermore, a projecting element is provided in the second side surface. The plate-shaped element is held between the supporting surface and the projecting element.

  • Patent number: 7922268
    Abstract: A cupboard installation part with storage compartments is insertable in an upper cupboard and is pivotable from an upper position, moved into the upper cupboard, into a position moved out of the upper cupboard and displaced downward. The cupboard installation part comprises pivot levers aligned parallel, which, on the one hand, are coupled to the cupboard installation part, and, on the other hand, are able to be coupled to the upper cupboard. A supporting element is insertable and mountable in the upper cupboard, on which supporting element a first pivot lever and a second pivot lever are pivotably borne, in each case in a first pivot bearing. The two pivot levers are each pivotably connected to a support part via a second pivot bearing, on which support part the storage compartments are mountable, at least on one side. An easily mountable cupboard installation part is thereby obtained which has a very stable construction and is usable in diverse ways.

  • Patent number: 7922270
    Abstract: A pull-in and damping device for a displaceable element has a displacement part (2), movable transversely to the displacement direction of the element, with a cam (14), which displacement part (2) is pullable, via spring means (13), from a moved-out position into a moved-in position, the cam (14) co-operating with curved pathways (6, 7), which have a minimum (24) and a maximum (25). The displacement part (2) is held in a clamped way via a clamping device (4) when, during displacement of the displaceable element from the end position into a moved-out position, the cam (14) of the displacement part (2) reaches the maximum (25) of the curved pathways (6, 7), and which clamping holding of the displacement part (2) is released when, during the pushing back of the displaceable element, the cam (14) of the displacement part (2) reaches the maximum (25) of the curved pathway (6, 7).

  • Patent number: 5975662
    Abstract: A drawer can be pulled out of, and pushed into, a furniture element along guides. Disposed on the furniture element are magnets on which a ferromagnetic plate, disposed on the drawer, abuts and is firmly held in the pushed-in state of the drawer. Disposed on the furniture element is a lever which is pivotable about a pivot axis and which can be foot-operated. By means of said lever, the plate can be released from the magnet, and the drawer brought into the pulled-out position by means of a spring element. The lever comprises a bow connected to the element forming the pivot axis. Said element is held in bearing elements fastened to two angle pieces and. These angle pieces each have an arm which is fastened lying flat on the floor of the furniture element. The other arm in each case lies flat against the front face of the floor of the furniture element, and projects over the floor on the underside, where the bearing elements are disposed.

  • Patent number: 5941620
    Abstract: In a corner furnishing element, a displaceably held inner built-in part is displaceable from an inner position into a position accessible from outside through an opening of the corner furnishing element. For this purpose a lever is provided which has two arms. This lever is pivotable, the one arm being in operative connection to a track, which is pivotable together therewith about a vertical pivot axis after an outer built-in part has been pulled out of the corner furnishing element. The other arm is connected to the inner built-in part by means of a connecting rod. The lever is formed by a solid or hollow profile, which is bent in the middle area. This lever can thus be inexpensively produced. Moreover the one arm can be provided with bends by means of which the character of the displacement movement of the inner built-in part can be changed.
