A parquet block with a woodwork joint has two parallel abutting sides, a longitudinal notch, a longitudinal tongue, two transverse grooves and two transverse tongues. The longitudinal notch, the longitudinal tongue, the transverse grooves and the transverse tongues on adjacent parquet blocks interlock to hold the parquet blocks securely in the longitudinal and transverse directions.
1. A parquet block with a woodwork joints having four sides;
a longitudinal notch having a short upper side and a long lower side with a distal edge and defined at one of the sides near the upper side edge of the parquet block;
a longitudinal tongue having a short upper side and a long lower side with a proximal edge and defined on a side opposite to the longitudinal notch of the parquet block to be inserted into the longitudinal notch in an adjacent parquet block;
two transverse tongues having a width and defined respectively on the sides different from the longitudinal notch and the longitudinal tongue; and
two transverse grooves having a width equal to the width of the transverse tongues and defined respectively beside the transverse tongues so that a transverse tongue on an adjacent parquet block can be mounted inside the adjacent transverse groove.
2. The parquet block with the woodwork joint as claimed in
the longitudinal notch further comprises an upward protrusion formed on the distal edge of the longitudinal notch, and
the longitudinal tongue further comprises a longitudinal detent defined on the proximal edge of the long lower side of the longitudinal tongue.
1. Field of the Invention
The present invention relates to a parquet block with woodwork joints, especially to a parquet block with woodwork joints that can securely attach to adjacent parquet blocks and have an attractive appearance.
2. Description of Related Art
People often use parquet floors to decorate houses. The parquet floors comprise parquet blocks connected to adjacent parquet blocks at a joint. However, the parquet blocks easily separate at the joint.
With reference to
To overcome the shortcomings of the conventional woodwork joint, the present invention provides a parquet block with woodwork joints to mitigate or obviate the aforementioned problems.
The primary objective of the present invention is to provide adjacent parquet blocks with woodwork joints having opposite parallel abutting edges, a longitudinal notch, a longitudinal tongue, two transverse grooves and two transverse tongues, which will not separate either longitudinally or transversely. The longitudinal notch is defined at parallel abutting edges of one of the parquet blocks. The tongue is formed on the parallel abutting edge of the adjacent parquet block opposite to and inserted into the notch in the adjacent parquet block. The groove is defined on another edge adjacent to the edge with the notch, the tongue is formed on the side opposite from the groove so the tongue can be mounted in the groove of the adjacent parquet block.
Assembling the parquet blocks with the foregoing woodwork joint features makes the parquet blocks connect firmly and keeps the parquet blocks from releasing in either the transverse or longitudinal direction.
Other objectives, advantages and novel features of the invention will become more apparent from the following detailed description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.
With reference to FIGS. 1 to 4, a parquet block in accordance with the present invention has woodwork joints to connect firmly to adjacent parquet blocks in each direction. The parquet block in accordance with the present invention has a front side (not numbered), a rear side (not numbered), a right side (not numbered), a left side (not numbered), an upper edge (not numbered), a lower edge (not numbered), a longitudinal tongue (1), a longitudinal notch (6), two transverse grooves (5) and two transverse tongues (3).
With further reference to
With reference to
With further reference to
The parquet block with the woodwork joint in accordance with the present has the following advantages.
1. The parquet blocks are securely held in longitudinal and transverse by the transverse tongues (3) inserted into the transverse grooves (5), the longitudinal tongues (1) inserted into the longitudinal notches (6) and the upward protrusions (7) inserted into the longitudinal detents (2).
2. The parquet block with the woodwork joint in accordance with the present invention can prevent the joint from separating so that the parquet blocks with the woodwork joint provide an attractive appearance.
Even though numerous characteristics and advantages of the present invention have been set forth in the foregoing description, together with details of the structure and function of the invention, that the disclosure is illustrative only, and changes may be made in detail, especially in matters of shape, size, and arrangement of parts within the principles of the invention to the full extent indicated by the broad general meaning of the terms in which the appended claims are expressed is to be understood.
