KurzfassungA small Italian design & engineering company has developed a sectional modular system for making sanitary plumbing fixtures that allow easier and faster installation and more accurate positioning thereof.
For manufacturers of these plumbing components this means minimization of the number of component variants to be manufactured and kept in stock.
The company is looking for industrial partners interested in acquiring the patent or license to use it.
A small Italian design & engineering company has developed a sectional modular system for making sanitary plumbing fixtures that allow easier and faster installation and more accurate positioning. For manufacturers of these plumbing components this means minimization of the number of component variants to be manufactured and kept in stock.
The sectional modular system for making sanitary plumbing fixtures, basically consists of only three parts:
1) one or more base components which are designed to be embedded in a wall (or alternatively mounted to such wall in a semi recessed or external position) and to be put in fluid communication,
2) at least one removable component selected, such as a two or more way diverter, a mixer, a mechanical and/or motorized thermostatic mixer, a fluid shut-off valve means, a multiple-way regulator/diverter and a water delivery outlet with which a wash basin or a tub spout, a shower head, a rinsing spray set may be connected,
3) a supporting and centering structure designed to be mounted to said wall for supporting two or more base components to ensure proper placement and relative position thereof.
The invention allows to create built-in parts common to various applications, i.e. designed to be prearranged for use in different modes/configurations, and to interface with external part that, in spite of their different structural and funtional characteristics, can interface in the same manner, i.e. interchangeably with the common buit-in part, affording a considerable reduction of the numbers of components to be manufactured.
This is of great interest to manufacturers of hydraulic systems.
The Italian company, owner of the patent, has developed a longdate experience in working with manufacturers of hydraulic components and has received international awards such as Bio, Design+, Compasso d’Oro.
The invention affords a reduction of component manufacturing costs, a reduction of the numbers of components to be manufactured and kept in stock, particularly for all the sets with common built-in, semi recessed or wall-mounted base components, which will be assembled at the factory by the component manufacturer, regardless of the right or left positioning or finishing thereof.
Moreover, maximum freedom is granted in design and composition (in view of minimized size and maximized combinability of components with variable center-to center distances and with the use of identical water control components) and also the possibility of prearranging and selling aggregate assemblies, in order to minimize the work on site and facilitate product installation by plumbers.
The great flexibility of the sectional modular system of the invention may be conveniently utilized to make aggregate assemblies at the factory, which are ready to be placed in the building frame in a recessed, semi recessed or externally mounted position, while allowing the end installer to replace one or more removable parts.
This is useful, for instance, to replace a set of tap and fittings while leaving the building frame unaffected.
