Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19824466A1] Noise is damped down by employing a point-supported metal flat spring (5) with low-friction surface, the spring designed as a U-shaped insert in the bolt recess (2) so the two opposing insert legs (6,7) afford limited free adjustment for the spring. In a variant, the spring forms a single leg fixed to the swivel catch bolt so the spring covers the area of the bolt recess surface impacted by the closing bolt actuation. In a second variant, the spring is held by a plastics coating on the swivel bolt at the same time permitting full spring movement.

Abstract (de)

Zur wirksamen Geräuschdämmung bei allen auftretenden Toleranzen und Temperaturen ist in der zur Aufnahme eines Schließbolzens (3) ausgelegten Ausnehmung (2) eines schloßseitigen Bauteils (1) eine Metall-Blattfeder (5) mit reibungsarmer Oberfläche vorgesehen, die dafür sorgt, daß der Schließbolzen (3) an zwei sich etwa gegenüberliegenden Seiten druckbeaufschlagt und damit geräuschfrei gehalten ist bzw. Schließgeräusche reduziert sind. <IMAGE>
