Description:

SUMMARY

The present patent relates to mechanical systems in general, more specifically to a rotating system for buildings in general which, according to the characteristics thereof, possesses as a basic principle to provide the formation of a rotating system in a proper and specific mechanical driving structure for the application in commercial and/or residential buildings with two or more stories or floors, in order to provide, in an extremely comfortable, practical and safe way, that each one of the floors thereof rotates freely and independently in either direction, at any moment and for any number of turns directly by the residents' command and having as a basis a rotating system with great resistance, safety and versatility. With specific design and shape, easily accessible for a better adaptation and safety for the users, practical handling, functionality, accessible cost and due to its general characteristics and dimensions, is easily adaptable to any type of buildings, furnishings, users and places, regardless of the characteristics thereof.

The patent in question is characterized in that it aggregates components and processes in a differentiated concept to meet the several requirements the nature of its use demands, that is, independent rotation of each of the floors of a building in general. Such concept provides a rotating system having great efficiency, functionality, resistance, durability, safety, accuracy and comfort due to its excellent technical qualities, thereby providing advantages and improvements in the revolving procedures of the floors of buildings in general, the characteristics of which differ from the other shapes and models of rotating systems for buildings in general widely known in the current state of the art.

The present patent consists in the utilization of a modern, safe, practical and efficient rotating system for buildings in general formed by an assembly of properly incorporated mechanical and building solutions comprising a complete and differentiated rotating system, with an exclusive design, optimum finish details and proprietary characteristics, incorporating a proper and specific mechanical structure, of high durability and strength, having a general circular shape and a properly integrated fixed structure symmetrically arranged in each of the floors as a support for the rotating system in the building, a rotary platform as a revolving element to the system, a driving assembly to impart movement to the rotary platform, a control panel to command the system, a sealing assembly as internal environment protection and an electrification assembly to collect electric power, in order to provide the formation of a complete, safe and unique assembly, whose internal and external shapes and arrangements provide a proper individualized arrangement over each one of the floors for the most varied types of buildings in general.

The general conception of the rotating system for buildings in general is directly based on a building having a fixed structure made of reinforced concrete or metallic material and a rotary platform for each floor which is directly actuated by an electric motor with a reducer, driven by a lateral roller belt and supported by a sliding wheel assembly over bearing races that, together with the control panel, allow a smooth, silent, economic and practical rotation of the rotary platform by sliding over the floor of the building in a fully individualized way and with the full possibility of determining the rotation speed and direction, as well as programming the rotation starting and ending time, including by remote control. Therefore, each one of the rotary platforms supported on each one of the floors rotates independently instead of the building central structure.

Simple rotating structures are widely known in the current state of the art, i.e., those with a single rotating floor as, for example, the ones applied primarily on the top of buildings and towers as a base for panoramic restaurants and also one-story residences. These rotating systems are fully based on big-sized driving systems similar to those used in overhead traveling crane systems widely commercially available for decades, the most well-known of those being that from Demag which are based on driving wheels individually supported on rails.

The present rotating system is based on the application of components and process in a differentiated concept, without, however, achieving a high degree of sophistication and complexity, thereby allowing to solve some of the main inconveniences of the other shapes and models widely known in the current state of the art and employed in the rotation of floors of buildings in general, which are located in a work range wherein the handling difficulties, low efficiency and performance and accidents are fairly frequent and whose shapes and/or models are extremely complex and based on adaptations, being thus very fragile and prone to deterioration and have low strength and durability, high costs, are fully unsafe, uncomfortable and difficult to handle, are not easily understood by the users and require the need of high skilled labor.

The application of the rotating system for buildings in general is based on the direct action of the driving assembly (4) around the rotary platform (3), which is directly controlled by the users by means of a control panel (5). When the electric motor coupled with a reducer (4A) is actuated, its output shaft pole wheel directly drives the roller belt (4F) which, in its turn, is activated by the assembly of central supports (4B) inside the belt guide (4C), in order to symmetrically drive the assembly of pole wheel (4D) sectors. As the assembly of pole wheel (4D) sectors and, therefore, its rotation, is activated by the roller belt (4F), the rotary platform (3) starts to rotate on the lower clearance (2D) in the fixed structure (2) supported by the set of vertical wheels or bearings (3C) on the bearing races or rails (2E) and around the fixed structure (2) center (2A) laterally guided by the set of horizontal wheels or bearings (3E) against the bearing race or rail (2C) that serves as a guide for the circular movement and the determination of the rotary platform (3) rotation on the floor (A) central axis. Before or after the actuation of the electric motor coupled with a reducer (4A), the users are able to freely determine the rotation speed and direction, as well as program the starting and ending of the rotating system (1) operation.

The components of the rotating system for buildings in general are fully fitted and attached to each other and the general structure of the building floor, do not present any breakable parts, are highly resistant and completely safe. After fitted and attached to each other and to the floor structure, the components are locked, thus preventing them from getting loose when in use, thus making the assembly fully available for a proper, safe, comfortable and silent rotation of the floor in relation to the building general structure. Therefore, the rotating system (1) can be easily used without worries of any nature as regarding its durability and safety.

As its structures are made of strong metallic material or similar material with equal or higher lightness and strength, the rotating system for buildings in general and the components thereof, are rustproof and waterproof, have a high level of durability and resistance, specially against bad weather and physical-chemical agents, provide great safety for the users and, when generally used, does not present any risks of fatigue of their structures.

For all of the above, this is a system that will be well received by residents and building constructors in general, since the rotating system for buildings in general presents several advantages, such as: great safety, reliability and agility in its application; great efficiency and performance due to its general conception; greater comfort and safety for the users; great durability and strength, low or no wear of the assembly as a whole; fully accessible costs which provides an optimum cost/benefit ratio; practical and safe use in any type of building; proper and direct adaptation to several types of users, furnishings and internal disposition of the floors; modern design; low cost and practical general maintenance; fully silent in all revolving operations; great versatility and flexibility regardless of the type of building; extremely low consumption of electric power; and the certainty of always having a product that fully meets the conditions required to its application in buildings in general.

For all of the above, the rotating system for buildings in general can be classified as a fully versatile, efficient, accurate, safe, silent and, specially, practical means for the fully individualized rotation, in either direction, of the floors of the most varied types of buildings in general by the most varied users and places, regardless of the general characteristics thereof, it is also easy to use and handle, has a great performance and excellent characteristics; the sizes, dimensions and quantities may vary, depending on the use needs.
