MESH BAG FOR SHOPPING TROLLEY OR BASKET
A bag of mesh-type synthetic material or natural fabric, which allows that items contained in a container such as a supermarket trolley or basket are stored thereon and removed easily by facilitating the transport thereof with no use of plastic bags. An advantage of this type of mesh bags is that they bear a higher load without breaking itself and can be cleaned with little amount of soap and water, and can be made with recycled materials.
The present invention relates to a utility model for a mesh bag type in the form of a mesh usable for loading carts such as shopping trolleys or baskets to carry items such as food, disks, or bulk commodities in general.
It is known in the marketplace means that are used to support, in supermarket trolleys or baskets, items such as boxes, bags, bottles. These mans are detachable from the trolley with its contents thereof and, not suffering any damages such as tears or breakage, and can be reusable.
Such means generally are of plastic bags made of polyethylene, polypropylene, or plastic polymers with handles on the top to fasten with the hands to be carried to another site as a car.BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to synthetic or natural fibers-made bags subject to be of a mesh-type woven material in the form of a mesh. The bag has handles of plastic, wood, metal, the same fabric or a combination of the above or any other existing material. The bags are placed on the inside of supermarket trolleys or baskets to facilitate the transfer of items being purchased for consumption or use at home and workplaces; avoiding or reducing the use of polyethylene plastic bags.
The bag may be made in different sizes but keeping the basic construction features.
The present invention refers to a bag made of synthetic material such as plastic or natural fibers such as jute or any other mesh-type woven material in the form of mesh with plastic, wood, metal handles, of the same fabric or a combination of these or any other existing material. The bag is placed in the interior of supermarket trolleys or baskets to facilitate the transfer thereof, along with items being purchased, to the vehicle or car, thus avoiding or reducing the use of polyethylene plastic bags.
As shown in
The reinforcement strips or simply reinforcements (2) are placed on the wall edges joining by this edge two walls in a mesh (1), i.e. by each reinforcement strip, two walls are attached and to these two walls, two other walls are joined to form the bag. As shown in
Although the eyelets are placed in the top upper four corners of the bag, there is also an embodiment in which the eyelets can be distributed to other parts, including the lower corners. The placement of the eyelets may also be done in the middle or in any part of the reinforcements, whether top, side and/or lower parts.
A single bag may be used for the entire inner portion of the trolley or basket or two or more bags of various sizes (as shown in
The bags can be differentiated by their colors or simply by the type of fabric.
For example, in
The bag can be made of plastic or any other woven material and may be comprised by one piece (heat-ironing) or it can be formed by the union of side walls, bottom and front ones joined by reinforcements in the same material either by sewing or heat-ironing, for example. The handles will be attached to the bag by any of the existing methods, such as: sewing, heat, hooks, clips, etc. In the referred embodiment sewed joining is preferred.
The main attributes of this mesh-type bag in the form of mesh is that it is:
Reusable. By its design and resistance, makes it usable for several times more than any plastic bag used in supermarkets. The useful life of the mesh type bag in the form of mesh will be up to the time of breaking or tearing itself.
Washable. By the type of material used, it may be washed as often as necessary and is quick-drying.
Long-lasting. The resistance of the material allows that the useful life of the mesh type bag in the form of mesh extends for a lot longer than the plastic bag commonly used in supermarkets.
Resistant. The mesh woven fabric in the form of mesh and the material used can withstand more loading kilograms to any plastic bag currently employed for the same purpose, keeping a low weight.
Hand held usable. Can be used inside another container as hand bag, backpack, vehicle, etc., or simply in the hand.
Comfort. Plastic, wood or other material handle will provide comfort for the user to carry the bag, so as to close it, thus avoiding any product spillage.
Close. The bag can be provided with a mechanical zipper seal such as Velcro® or any other means. Rather than by tie cord or by zipper or snap.
Ecological The purpose in this utility model is to replace the polyethylene or plastic bags that are currently used for transporting the products. The reuse of this bag abate significantly the use of plastics that are not biodegradable.
While there exist similar means to the present invention, it is desirable to clarify that known bags up to date have at least two disadvantages that the present invention avoids, specifically the fact that the mesh of this invention is not so bulky when is kept, weighs less and does not require a cleaning as thoroughly as is the case for the known bags that are totally enclosed on the bottom and the side walls. Secondly, the water used to wash it is definitely less and the same detergent consumption.
The mesh can be manufactured with different materials, depending on several factors, such as the mechanical strength required or end use devoted for the mesh. For example, It may built with synthetic fibers such as plastic materials or from natural fibers such as jute.
The opening of the mesh is selected according to the items planned to be carried, although it is also possible to use a double mesh in the same trolley or basket.
One major advantage is that in a trolley or basket it may be placed one, two or more equal or different mesh for ease of transportation and placement of shopping items. For example, cleaning articles may be placed in a mesh, in another, articles that will be billed and in other, more vegetables or meats that should not be loaded with weight on top thereof.
The inventive meshes has the advantage of being able to be transported by one, two or more persons as if they were a backpack to the shoulder or a larger basket.
An additional advantage is that it can be manufactured with 100% biodegradable materials unlike the plastic bags commonly used that can certainly be degradable, but after hundreds of years. They can even be made with recyclable materials even though they are not biodegradable giving a new use of materials already used by helping to keep a healthy environment.
1. A bag of synthetic material or natural fabric, wherein it comprises a series of walls in mesh (1), which are joined together by means of reinforcements (2) with eyelets (3), a safety hook (4), handles (5) and tie cords (7) when being reinforcements of the upper perimeter, the upper reinforcements (2) include handles (5) at the center of the top edge of at least one of the walls, preferably at least two, to the side walls, to the front or rear walls, and joined to the reinforcements (6) through reinforcement seams.
2. The woven material bag, according to claim 1, wherein the reinforcements (2) are placed on the edges of the walls by joining two of them by each reinforcement strip.
