  • Patent number: 7065806
    Abstract: A profiled unit (10) for a shower partition door (S) is mounted for rotation about an off-center vertical axis (A) and accommodates, in longitudinal grooves (12, 14) on either side, partial leaves (22, 24) whose position relative to each other is adjustable in at least two directions. At the front and/or rear, flat elements (30, 38) are lockable into a profiled element (11), whose ends accommodate pivot bearings (26, 28) between which the profiled unit (10) can be raised or lowered even during its rotation and can be locked in position in at least one door position. An adjustable and lockable supporting plate (50) sits below the bottom pivot bearing (26). Above this, the door rests on a preloadable spring assembly (F) that includes a compression spring (67) that can be contracted and released in order to lower or raise said door (S), respectively.

  • Publication number: 20030145529
    Abstract: A shaped section (10) for a shower partition door (S) is mounted in such a way that it can pivot about an eccentric vertical axis (A) and supports partial leaves (22, 24) in longitudinal grooves (12, 14) on both sides. Said partial leaves can be adjusted in relation to each other in at least two directions. Plane elements (30, 38) can lock into a shaped body (11) on the front and/or rear sides, for example a hollow section which accommodates pivot bearings (26, 28) at the end. The shaped section (10) can be raised and lowered between said pivot bearings even during the pivoting movement, as well as stopped in at least one door position. A mounting or supporting plate (50) can be adjusted and fixed beneath the lower pivot bearing (26) for alignment purposes. The weight of the door rests on a spring arrangement (F) which can be prestressed, above said mounting or supporting plate. A pressure spring (67) can be contracted and released using a manual adjusting device in order to lower or raise the door (S).

  • Patent number: 4748876
    Abstract: Prior universal pliers with two gripping arms (11, 15) and an adjustable jaw have the disadvantage that during adjustment one must change hands while using the pliers which is unfavourable as regards the economic requirements. This disadvantage is obviated by the present invention in that both gripping arms (11, 15) are non-displaceably articulated on one another and one of the two jaws (19) is displaceably mounted with respect to its associated gripping arm (15) at right angles to the jaw opening.
