  • Publication number: 20110133507
    Abstract: A protection device of this type with a flexible sheetlike structure which is mounted movably between a compactly stored inoperative position and at least one at least partially extended functional position and is provided at the end thereof which is in front in the extension direction with a planar and dimensionally stable contour part which extends substantially over an entire width of the sheetlike structure is known. According to the invention, control means are assigned to a movement end region of the contour part shortly before the extended end position is reached, said control means shifting the contour part forwards in the extension direction by an additional extension distance. Use for loading space coverings of passenger vehicles.

  • Publication number: 20090045648
    Abstract: A protective device with a flexible protective canopy, having a winding shaft, on which the protective canopy is held so that it can be wound and unwound, and a mounting in which the winding shaft is rotatably supported is known, the mounting with its opposing lateral areas being guided so that it is longitudinally displaceable, and the protective canopy having a leading edge face which is immovably secured. According to the invention, over the displacement length of the mounting, at least, the opposite lateral areas each have a flexible cover profile assigned to them, which immovably extends parallel to the guides and projects transversely to the direction of displacement towards the middle of the protective canopy, in such a way that the cover profile at least partially covers a corresponding lateral edge of the protective canopy and the corresponding lateral area of the mounting. Use as sunshade for passenger cars.

  • Patent number: 6830091
    Abstract: A louver for a louver blind curtain comprising two parts which can be moved in a telescope-like manner with respect to each other. By means of a rubber traction device, the louver parts are subjected to pre-tension in the direction toward the shortened position of the louver. The louver curtain comprises a multitude of louvers whose length can be automatically changed and which are guided at both ends on guide tracks. The connection between the louver and each guide track is achieved by a respective slider, where the slider is provided at one end of the louvers with a drive, to change the angular position of the louvers. In addition, those sliders which travel the longest distance during the opening and the closing of the curtain are provided with screwed spindle drives.
