Abstract (en)

The pontoon (1) consists of two inner floating bodies (2) and two outer floating bodies (3). The inner ones are attached through links (4) at the bottom. The inner and outer ones are connected to each other by double links (5) at the top. The double link includes a twin-arm unfolding lever (6) with one arm (7) fixed to the unfolding rope (8) and the other arm (9) acting against a stop part (10).

Abstract (de)

Ein W-förmig faltbarer Schwimmponton (1) besteht aus zwei Innenschwimmkörpern (2) und zwei Außenschwimmkörpern (3). Die Innenschwimmkörper (2) sind durch Gelenke (4) an ihrer Unterseite verbunden. Innen- und Außenschwimmkörper (2, 3) sind durch Doppelgelenke (5) an ihrer Oberseite miteinander verbunden. Das Doppelgelenk (5) weist als Gelenklasche einen zweiarmigen Entfalthebel (6) auf, an dessen einem Arm (7) ein Entfaltseil (8) befestigt ist, während der andere Arm (9) gegen Anschläge an einem Anschlagteil (10) wirkt. Die Doppelgelenke (5) bestehen aus jeweils einem am Innenschwimmkörper (2) und am Außenschwimmkörper (3) gelagerten Gelenkbolzen. Die Gelenkbolzen sind ihrerseits mit Hilfe eines Entfalthebels (6) gelenkig verbunden. Die Entfalthebel (6) sind über die Länge des Schwimmpontons (1) hinweg drehfest miteinander verbunden. Dank der erfindungsgemäßen Doppelgelenkverbindung können sich die Innen-und Außenschwimmkörper (2, 3) nicht mehr gegenseitig verschwenken; die Falt- und Entfaltvorgänge verlaufen ungestört. <IMAGE>
