Registered on March 10, 1965 United States Patent Ofi ice-Impatent on August 22, 1967 3,337,258 Floorcoverings for trucks Meyer Steinberg, Woodmere, N.Y., cessionar t Ideal Rubber Products Co., Inc. This invention refers to doormats for use in motor cars and in particular to doormats for use in motor cars.
Today's doormats, intended for use in cars and other types of vehicle, are produced in different length according to the different width of the cars in which they are to be used. The width of the car alone, however, is not the only determinant of the length of the car mats; it is also necessary to take into account the height of the car mats by means of the car's bottom, which is produced by the boss formed on it, in order to make room for the gearbox and the car's camshaft.
Therefore, it is obvious that the producer of mats for use in motor cars and other cars has to produce a large number of mats of different sizes in order to ensure that all brands of cars and their different types are covered. In addition, the number of mats needed is increasing each year depending on the number of new cars produced and their model.
Therefore, the main objective of this invention is to create a carpet arrangement that can be used with all makes and types of cars and other types of vehicle. Another feature of this invention is to create a ground grid arrangement that can simply be mounted on the ground of an automotive vehicle.
Another of the objects of this invention is to create a layout of matting that is both beautifully decorated and utility. Another subject of the present invention is to make available a ground mats arrangement for use in cars and the like consisting of three separate parts.
Another feature of the present invention is to furnish a ground mats arrangement which can be used for cars which either have bosses on the ground thereof and either on the front ground sections or the back ground sections thereof or not. Another feature of the present invention is to offer a simple and inexpensive arrangement of mats.
Fig. 1 is a plan picture of the design form in which the matting arrangement of the invention is used. FIG. 2 is a plan of the middle section of the FIG. 1 layout. FIG. 3 is a bottom part of the FIG. 1 shows the arrangement of the mats.
FIG. 4 is a bottom of the side panels of the FIG. 1 layout. FIG. 6 is a partially cut version in relation to a second version of the present invention which passes through the middle section and one of the side parts thereof. FIG. 7 is a detail cut of a third version of the present invention which passes through the middle section and one of the side parts of it.
FIG. 8 is a partially cross-cut representation in relation to a forth form of the present invention, which is guided through the middle section and one of the side parts thereof. FIG 9 is a detail cut of a fifth version of the present invention which passes through the middle section and one of the side parts of it.
With reference to the diagrams, a ground grid arrangement 10 is now shown, which is designed according to the preferential design of the present invention. Ground covering arrangement comprising a central section 12, a lateral section 14 and a lateral section 16. Ground mats, and in particular portions 12, 14 and 16, are plate-shaped and preferentially made of gum, but may also be made of any other appropriate materials; and are primarily for use on the front ground section of a motor vehicle or the like, but may also be effective on the back ground section thereof.
said central section 12 comprises a structural section 18 disposed centered on it and a multiplicity of substantially side ribs 20 formed on top thereof and extended lengthwise thereof in equidistant relation to each other in said longitudinal direction, said ribs forming 20 channels or slits 22 between them.
Whereas the side and right side portions 14 and 16 on the leftside consist of the top elements 24 and 26 and the bottom elements 28 and 30, respectively; whereas the top elements are designed to be placed on the sloping part of the vehicle bottom and the bottom elements are designed to be placed on the shallow or horizontally section of the vehicle bottom
Lower members 28 and 30 have a multiplicity of substantially longitudinally elongated ribs 32 formed on their reverse sides; the ribs extend along a section of the inner side edge of the lower members in spaced apart mutually orthogonal relation with the ribs forming 32 channels or slits 34 therebetween.
Although the burrs 32 are not all the same distance apart in the present form, it should be noted that the same applies to the present invention. In case the ground blanket arrangement 10 is to be fitted in the front section of a motor car or similar car, the middle section 12 is placed on the ground of the car above the boss on it; the designing section 18 is used to centre the section 12 on the ground.
side portion 14 and 16 are then placed selective on the right and left side portion of the bottom, the lower inner side portion edges of the portion edges being placed on the side portion edges of the central portion, and the slits 34 on the underside of the portion 14 and 16 engaging the webs 20 on the upper side of the central portion 12, while the slits 22 on its upper side engaging the webs 32 on the underside of the side portion 14 and 16, thereby positioning the side portion with regard to the central portion and with regard to the bottom of the car.
In the following, the surface areas of the middle section 12 and the side parts 14'and 16 that touch each other are sometimes described as counter-surfaces. Clearly, since the side panels 1 4 and 16 can be releasably attached to the central panel 12, thereby varying the actual length of the ground sheet arrangement, the ground sheet arrangement can be mounted on the ground of any make or car or the like and the length thereof can be set to correspond to the width of the car.
FIGUR 6 presents a second version of the present invention, whereby similar parts are identified by similar numbering. When in this form, both the central portion and the side portions have upper and lower wavy surfaces having a sawtooth configurations so as to form ribs 20A and slits 22A on the upper side of the central portion 12A and ribs 20A and 22A on the lower side thereof, while the side portion to the right has 14A ribs 32A and slits 34A on the lower side thereof and ribs 32A and slits 34A on the upper side thereof.
Thereby the side portions may then be placed on the central portion to be secured in position relative thereto or the side portions may first be placed on the bottom of the vehicle and then the central portion may be placed on the side portions whereby the central portion is secured in position relative to the side portions.
The third version of this invention is presented in FIGUR 7, where similar parts are identified by similar references. The design is similar to FIG- URE 6 with the exception that the waves are corrugated on the surface creating 20B, 26B, 32B, 32B, 32B curved burrs and 22B, 22B, 34B, 34B curved slashes.
With this design, the middle section can also be placed below or above the side segments. FIGUR 8 presents a forth version of the present invention, whereby similar parts are identified by similar numbering. Specifically, the central section 12C has a square undulation which forms square formed burrs 20C and square formed slits 220 on the top thereof, and the side portions also have square undulations which form square formed burrs 32C and square formed slits 34C on the bottom thereof.
Lateral portions are designed to be placed on the central portion, whereupon slits 34C mesh with burrs 20C and slits 22C mesh with burrs 32C, thereby positioning the burr portions relative to the central portion. The fifth version of this invention is shown in FIGUR 9, where similar parts are marked by similar numbers.
A central section comprising a section having a multiplicity of integral formed truncated cone type empty beakers 36 projecting downward from their underside and defining a multiplicity of truncated cone type apertures or notches 38 therein; the beakers and thus the notches formed preferentially in equidistantly separated relation to each other.
Likewise, the side parts comprise parts thereof having a multiplicity of integral formed truncated cone type empty buckets 40 projecting downward from their bottom faces and defining a multiplicity of truncated cone type apertures or notches 42 therein; the buckets 40 and thus the apertures 42 are disposed at equidistant spacings from each other similar to those of the bucket 36 and apertures 38 in the central part.
When the side portions are placed on the centre portion, the baskets 40 are thus inserted in the notches 38 or placed in an interlocking relation to each other, thus positioning the side portions in relation to the centre portion. As an alternative, the centre section can be positioned relative to the side section by laying the centre section on the side section and inserting the baskets 36 in the 42 notches.
Note that the middle section can also be formed with cylindric apertures and the side portions can be formed with cylindric buckets protruding downwards from their bottom faces, whereupon the side portions can be positioned with regard to the middle section as described above.
So it turns out that I have provided a carpet arrangement whose length can be changed in a selective way, whereby a unique carpet arrangement can be used for all different makes and types of cars and similar cars, whereby a producer and a dealer or salesman no longer have to produce a large number of carpet mats of different sizes.
