Abstract (en)

A description is given of a means (1) for connecting the panels (2,3) of a flat horizontal deck (4) to the supporting members (5) fixed at one end (5') to a surface (6) parallel to the said flat horizontal deck (4), the said connecting means (1) terminating in the direction of the said surface with a projecting part (7) connectable to the free end (5'') of the said supporting members (5). The said connecting means (1) consists of a joint (15) formed by two sections (8,9) that are fixable along the adjacent edges (2q, 3q) of two consecutive panels (2,3), these two sections (8,9) being provided with means (10,11) for joining them and preventing relative movement between them in a direction perpendicular to the said adjacent edges (2q, 3q), and with holes (8g, 9g) parallel to the longitudinal axis of the said joint (15) and to the said panels (2,3) for the insertion of dowels or pins (14,16) projecting out of these to a defined distance. <IMAGE>
