Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19856285C1] A wall break segment cover hinge employs a roller (48) per segment (10,12) whose roller axis (50) coincides with the hinge (14) axis (24) and the first hinge tab (20) fixer sector (26) has cover leaves (30) at both axial ends (28) to project vertically in the same direction. Thus the leaves externally close off the wedge space when the segments (10,12) swivel round the hinge axis (26). The hinge axis (24) itself consists of a tubular sleeve (42) fixed to the first hinge tab (20) and fixed between the two cover leaves (30), and the axis (5) of the respective roller (48) has a bearing sector (52) adapted in diameter to the clear inside diameter of the sleeve (42). Roller bearing sector (54) for the respective roller should have a diameter larger than that of bearing sector (52).

Abstract (de)

Es wird eine Scharniereinrichtung (14) für Segmente (10, 12) einer Abdeckung einer Gebäudeöffnung beschrieben, wobei die Segemente (10, 12) entlang einer an der Gebäudeöffnung vorgesehenen gekrümmten Führungsbahn bewegbar sind. Die eine Endfläche (16) eines ersten Segmentes (10) ist teilzylindrisch konvex und die zugehörige zweite Endfläche (18) des benachbarten zweiten Segmentes (12) ist teilzylindrisch konkav ausgebildet. Die Scharniereinrichtung (14) weist ein erstes und ein zweite Scharnierelement (20, 22) auf, die miteinander mittels einer gemeinsamen Scharnierachse (24) schwenkbeweglich verbunden sind. Die gemeinsame Scharnierachse (24) ist mindestens annähernd im Krümmungsmittelpunkt der ersten und der zweiten Endfläche (16, 18) vorgesehen. An jedem Segment (10, 12) sind Laufrollen (48) gelagert, die entlang von die Führungsbahn festlegenden Laufschienen verfahrbar sind. Auf Halteeinrichtungen für die Laufrollen (48) kann dadurch verzichtet werden, dass die jeweilige Laufrolle (48) an einer Rollenachse (50) gelagert ist, die mit der Scharnierachse (24) der Scharniereinrichtung (14) zusammenfällt. <IMAGE>
