  • Patent number: 10415243
    Abstract: Panel-shaped components are used for interior construction, e.g., for covering walls, ceilings and/or fabricating lightweight walls. Connecting elements are used during the assembly of such wall components. A connecting element is suitable for connecting several such wall components with each other, thereby greatly simplifying the assembly of wall components above all with respect to handling, and increasing the stability of such a wall. For this reason, such a connecting element has two U-shaped profiles offset to each other, which can accommodate at least two wall components, preferably plasterboards, whose narrow sides abut against each other. The non-positive connection between the connecting element and a wall component is established according to the invention using pop rivets or the known drywall screws.

  • Publication number: 20180142468
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to the field of general building construction, comprised predominantly of panel-shaped supporting and non-supporting elements. These panel-shaped components are used for interior construction, e.g., for covering walls, ceilings and/or fabricating lightweight walls. Connecting elements are used during the assembly of such wall components. The present inventive connecting element is suitable for connecting several such wall components with each other, thereby greatly simplifying the assembly of wall components above all with respect to handling, and increasing the stability of such a wall. For this reason, the inventive connecting element has two U-shaped profiles offset to each other, which can accommodate at least two wall components, preferably plasterboards, whose narrow sides abut against each other.
