Abstract (en)

The combination bathroom shower (11) has at least one shower unit (14,15,18) mounted to the wall and at least one section (12) with height adjustment. The movable section (12) has at least a partial weight compensation, and pref. is over-compensated so that it has a spontaneous upwards movement. The weight compensation is through a gas spring, and the section (12) moves on guides with a lock to secure it at the required height level. The lock is a bolt riding in a slit to engage the slit recesses at the various height settings.

Abstract (de)

Durch die Erfindung wird eine Duschkombination (11) geschaffen, die mindestens eine Brausefunktionseinheit (14, 15, 18) aufweist und an einer Wand (22) anbringbar ist sowie zumindest einen höhenverstellbaren Teil (12) aufweist. Der höhenverstellbare Teil (12) ist zumindest teilweise gewichtskompensiert, vorzugsweise sogar überkompensiert, wodurch er quasi von allein nach oben beweglich ist. Eine Möglichkeit zur Gewichtskompensierung ist eine Gasdruckfeder (31). Des weiteren können eine Führung (26, 27) und eine Arretierungseinrichtung (27, 26, 29) vorgesehen sein, um den höhenverstellbaren Teil (12) in verschiedenen Stellungen festzulegen. Vorteilhaft können hierzu Führungskolben (27) und Führungsschlitze (26), für eine Arretierung mit Einschnitten (29), vorgesehen sein. <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
