  • Patent number: 10106016
    Abstract: Roller blind sheet for a protective device of a vehicle interior compartment, including a flexible structure which is displaceable between a pulled-out protective position and compactly stored rest position in a vehicle interior. The structure is associated with lateral reinforcing metal tapes on opposite longitudinal sides thereof, and in the assembled state the tapes are guided in vehicle-related, lengthwise shiftable guiding rails. On the longitudinal sides of the structure, thin connecting strands made of metal are fixed, which are welded to the respective metal tape using a plurality of welding spots spaced along the longitudinal direction of the longitudinal sides.

  • Publication number: 20180297452
    Abstract: Shading device for a two-part side-window arrangement of a motor vehicle having a main shading structure for a main window and a secondary shading structure for a secondary window. The main shading structure is displaced between a rest position and a shading position and is retained on a winding shaft. The secondary shading structure is displaced, transversely to the main shading structure, between a rest position and a shading position. A drive system has a drive unit and a main drive train with two drive-transmission arrangements interacting with the main shading structure, and a secondary drive train with a drive-transmission arrangement for displacing the secondary shading structure. Drive elements for the drive-transmission arrangements are coupled to one another synchronously in a rotationally fixed manner via a synchronization shaft, and the synchronization shaft is mounted at a distance from the winding shaft and at least largely parallel thereto.

  • Publication number: 20180178731
    Abstract: A luggage compartment cover including a flexible cover sheet held on a winding shaft so that it can be wound and unwound between an extended functional position and a wound-up resting position, and substantially dimensionally stable contour section attached to a front end region of the cover sheet in the direction of extension and assigned to a holding element for securing the contour section in the extended functional position at holding areas fixed to the luggage compartment. The contour section is configured such that, starting from a planar orientation, it can be bent toward one side relative to an axis of curvature oriented parallel or coaxially to an axis of rotation of the winding shaft, and is supported toward the opposite side in the planar orientation in an inherently stable manner.

  • Publication number: 20180126833
    Abstract: A retractable cover system includes a frame that includes laterally spaced apart guide rails. A flexible cover is slidably supported with respect to the guide rails. The cover has laterally opposing end portions each with an end that is arranged over and overlaps a respective one of the guide rails to provide an outer seal. In one embodiment, a flap is secured to the cover near each of the ends. Each flap is configured to retain its respective end portion to its respective guide rail. The cover is secured in a desired position by clamping a portion of the cover, for example, the flap.

  • Patent number: 9944216
    Abstract: A retractable cover system includes a frame that provides an opening and includes laterally spaced apart guide rails and includes a drive system. A flexible cover has laterally opposing edge portions with intermittent retainers received in the guide rails. The retainers are configured to slide relative to the guide rails between first and second positions within the opening in response to actuation of the drive system. Multiple spaced apart bows extend laterally between guide rails. The bows provide a laterally and outwardly extending arc that maintains tension on the flexible cover laterally between the retainers.
