OBJECT OF THE INVENTION
The object of the present invention is some pieces for modular constructions, such that they permit the erection of huts, greenhouses, garages, box rooms, etc.
The assembling of the pieces to each other permits the erection of said modular constructions, it being possible to adopt diverse forms, serving as a basis for the mounting of enclosing elements, fastening and retaining them in a secure and effective way.
The present pieces for modular construction are characterised in their special configuration such that it allows the retention of the enclosing pieces as well as the assembling with other pieces in an effective and secure way, achieving a structure with a sufficient self-supporting capacity and rigidity.
Thus the present invention lies within the ambit of modular constructions, and more specifically those of greenhouses, dog kennels, garages, etc., using for these some structural elements like those that are described below.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
Up till now the construction of greenhouses is carried out by means of tubular or supporting elements joined with each other by means of additional pieces, said supporting pieces not having structural properties that facilitate the mounting and fastening of enclosing elements, requiring additional means for enclosing or fastening. Said constructions are also limited by the dimensions of said supporting elements, it not being possible to configure different structures adapted to different situations.
Therefore it is an objective of the present invention, to overcome the above drawbacks, by developing for this a series of pieces that allow the erection of any type of construction, the construction not being limited by the pieces themselves, and that these offer some structural properties that allow easy mounting of the enclosing elements of the constructions.
DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
The proposed invention of pieces for modular construction, consists of a series of pieces, which are joined to each other and that by addition of similar pieces the erection of any type of construction is achieved. Also, through the use of pieces that are wedge-shaped and that are mounted between two modular pieces, it is possible to obtain curved forms.
One of the pieces is longitudinal in form with circular ends designed in a complementary way that allows the union with similar pieces to be obtained. The longitudinal piece, has over its length some such channels, on which are mounted the enclosing elements. Said enclosing elements can be blinds, sheets of polycarbonate or other materials. The material of implementation of the longitudinal pieces can be aluminium or any other, be this PVC, plastics, etc.
The advantage that the present pieces offer, given their modular properties and appropriate dimensions, is the possibility to erect from industrial greenhouses, to greenhouses for domestic use, it being possible to have diverse and varied forms of use.
The longitudinal piece, presents over its length, on both sides, an individual channel, which serves to fasten and secure the enclosing elements, which as has already been mentioned, can be from a blind, to a polycarbonate sheet. Moreover, said piece on the ends presents some circular projections with the objective of favouring the union with the rest of modular pieces. The circular ends are complementary, since whilst in one of them some conical nipples are mounted, in the other of the circular ends there are some perforations in truncated conical form, wherein the aforementioned nipples fit, in order to favour the union between adjoining pieces.
The advantage that the modular construction offers is that of being able to adapt the construction to the size that is wanted, it being possible to adapt to any form or size.
In order to be able to erect structures with curved forms, another piece has been designed of plastic or of similar material, wedge-shaped, in which there is a series of perforations, coincident with those of the circular ends of the longitudinal pieces.
