Abrégés

Abrégé français

Une boîte à lunch pouvant se transformer en napperon est dotée de deux fermetures à glissières, dont l'une est fixée à au moins trois des cotés, mais préférablement à quatre cotés, tandis que la deuxième fermeture à glissière est posée sur les cotés restants. Ainsi, lorsque toutes les fermetures sont ouvertes, la boîte à lunch ouverte peut être posée plat pour servir de napperon.


Abrégé anglais

A lunch box transforming into a placemat has at least two zippers with one of the two zippers running along at least three but preferably four sides while the second zipper runs along the remaining sides so as to allow, when all unzipped, to open the lunch box so that it lays flat and becomes a placemat.

E3ACKGRQUND OF THE INVENTIQ,N

[[X.)2] There are several invenfrons in the field of food serving that present
products that have. two uses. Most have to do with combining utensils
with placemats. Others are more like trays with predefined cavitPes that
act like brnMs or ptates_

flat
pieces of cardboards desigr-ed for single use but these patents are
generally for the manufactur+n g process or to disclose means for storage
of boxes which are made out of fJat sheets of cardboard.

[004] There does not appear to be a practical way to provide for a lunch box
that also acts as a ptacemat
