Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0148331A1] The invention relates to a joint for two flat construction elements, especially floor panels. According to the invention, a feather and groove joint is configured functionally separately from a locking part. Said locking part is in the form of a lock pin of a construction element, said lock pin (30) being located at a distance from the feather and groove joint (16, 28) and engaging in a corresponding engaging element (24) of the other construction element. The inventive joint is preferably configured on both the longitudinal edges and the front edges of a rectangular construction element, for example a floor panel. The locking part enables the floor panels to be joined in a flat position, i.e. without tilting.
