Abstract (en)

A folding frame with increased safety, particularly for high-chairs and the like, which comprises a framework which is constituted by a first U-shaped frame (2) and a second U-shaped frame (3) which are joined, at their ends, by joints (10',10''), each of which is provided with an internal body (11), which is hinged to the end of the U-shaped frames and forms a guiding slot (12) for the sliding of a pivot (13) for connecting two bars (14,15) which are pivoted, at one end, to the U-shaped frames. There is also an external body (16) which is connected to the connecting pivot (13) and can perform a translatory motion in order to arrange the U-shaped frames (2,3) in a closed position, in which the U-shaped frames (2,3) are mutually side by side, and in an open position, in which the U-shaped frames (2,3) are mutually inclined. The folding frame comprises, on at least one of the joints (10',10''), elastic means (20) which are meant to push the U-shaped frames (2,3) into the open position. <IMAGE>
