  • Patent number: 9555732
    Abstract: Disclosed are hinged and non-hinged bunk board cover systems for mating over a bunk board component of a watercraft trailer. An exemplary hinged embodiment includes a main contact surface component sized to substantially cover a top surface of the bunk board component and a pair of side fastener surface components connected to the main contact surface component via a pair of hinge components. The main contact surface component, hinge components and side fastener surface components may be co-extruded into a single, “cut to length” ribbon that can be formed into a bulk roll. It is envisioned that certain embodiments may be constructed from thermoplastics, thermoplastic elastomers, or a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 7654046
    Abstract: A door assembly includes a frame with brick mold, a threshold, and a door panel. A plastic member is mounted to the frame and the plastic member defines a flashing strip, a nailing fin, and a tear-away construction cover that protects a portion of the frame, such as the brick mold, from damage during construction. After construction, the construction cover is torn away to reveal the protected clean and undamaged brick mold.

  • Patent number: 7160601
    Abstract: A door jamb assembly for an entryway has a wooden jamb plate to which an extruded plastic brick mold and stop member is attached. The brick mold and stop member forms the raised stop of the jamb assembly also may form the brick mold thereof. The extruded plastic brick mold and stop member has a core made of economical cellular PVC plastic at least partially encased in a stabilizing layer of a plastic material, such as SAN, having a heat distortion temperature greater than that of the PVC plastic of the core. The stabilizing layer holds the core material in place and restrains it against distortion and shrinkage due to extreme temperatures, such as those found between a storm door and a door exposed to direct sunlight.

  • Patent number: 7108902
    Abstract: A commercial floor mat has a plurality of aluminum rails arranged in closely spaced side-by-side relationship and connected together by hinged connectors beneath the rails. Each rail has a pair of downwardly facing grooves on its underside extending along respective edges of the rail. Each connector has a flexible central web and a pair of spaced upstanding tabs disposed in the downwardly facing grooves of adjacent rails. The tabs have flexible barb-shaped ribs extending along their opposed faces to anchor the tabs in the grooves with a friction fit. The flexible central webs of the connectors facilitate hinged movement of connected rails to permit the mat to be rolled onto itself into a compact configuration.

  • Patent number: 5486392
    Abstract: A floor mat including a plurality of rigid, elongated rails interconnected by flexible coupling members is provided. Each of the rails include a base portion supporting a tread surface and a pair of parallel side members connected to the sides of the base portion. Each of the side members defines a passageway. The coupling members are flexible, resilient, and each including a web with longitudinal side margins. Each web has connected to each side margin an arrangement for engaging the passageway of a side member. When the floor mat is disposed on a flat, horizontal floor, the web is at bottommost position in the floor mat.

  • Patent number: 5190799
    Abstract: A floor mat (10) is provided which includes longitudinal rail sections (e.g., 16, 17) capable of being interconnected with other longitudinal rails to form a roll up floor mat or pedestrian walking surface. The rails include a plastic cushion layer (21) which can be coextruded onto the upwardly facing surface of an underlying rigid plastic rail core (8), with the cushion layer being softer than the rail core and forming an integral walking surface thereon. At least one living hinge (23) may be employed within the rail section for pivotal movement of the rail, allowing the floor mat to be rolled up.

  • Patent number: 4879151
    Abstract: This invention relates to insert strips for a floor covering structure for public walking areas such as in foyers of commercial buildings. The floor structure is made up of connected longitudinal sections, each section having a central longitudinal channel, a raised removable strip being disposed into each channel, to provide a walking surface and the strip having a relatively friction free underlying surface for an easy insertion into a channel and the same being arranged to be retained in the channel.
