Description



CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

[0001] Pursuant to 35 U.S.C. .sctn. 119(a), this application claims the benefit of the priority to Taiwan Patent Application No. 105138596 filed Nov. 24, 2016. The content of the prior application is incorporated herein by its entirety.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

[0002] The present invention relates to a container for interfold tissue paper, particularly a packaging container for interfold tissue paper which can be hung on a roll holder.

2. Description of the Prior Arts

[0003] Generally, the bathroom tissue roll is used at the bathroom. However, the bathroom is under a highly humid environment, dust easily accumulates on the bathroom tissue, and also the bathroom tissue is sprinkled easily by water. Second, the bathroom tissue roll is not user-friendly for the ambulant disabled, children, and the elderly.

[0004] By the way, the tissue paper container in the prior art is a rectangular package or box with a slot, which only can be put on a plane for a user to draw tissue paper therefrom. Under a highly humid environment, the extra moisture in the air condenses upon the plane and would drop on the tissue paper container, and the water drop flows into the tissue paper container and damps the tissue paper. Thus, the conventional tissue paper container is not suitable for use directly on the bathroom sink or kitchen sink. Besides, the tissue paper container usually cannot be fixed on the wall, causing trouble for placing the conventional tissue paper container.

[0005] Further, when the tissue paper in the container is running out, the unfixed and lightweight container will be lifted up along with drawing of the tissue paper, and then fall down into the sink or toilet.

[0006] However, using the bathroom tissue roll and towel have shortcomings as follows: 1. the roll tissue paper cannot be pulled off with one single hand; 2. the unpackaged tissue roll and towel are prone to get wet and dust, breeding mildew under the humid environment; and 3. the unpackaged tissue roll and towel do not facilitate use by the ambulant disabled, children and the elderly.

[0007] As the user considers the disadvantages of using bathroom tissue roll and tries to replace the bathroom tissue roll with interfold tissue paper, the existing roll holder cannot be used and must be removed. The removal and replacement will be quite a waste of resources, manpower, and money. Thus, the present invention could solve the above problems.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0008] In view of the problems above-mentioned, the object of the present invention is to provide a packaging container for interfold tissue paper to hang on the existing roll holder, allowing the interfold tissue paper to be disposed on the wall instead of on the plane and ensuring the packaging container would not be lifted up along with withdrawal of the tissue paper. Thus, the existing roll holder can remain useful.

[0009] Accordingly, a packaging container for interfold tissue paper of the present invention comprises a packaging, a dispensing slot and a yielding hanger. The packaging further comprises a soft-material package and a space. The space is formed by the soft-material package around. The material of the soft-material package is plastic film or paper with film lamination. The dispensing slot is formed by perforations and located on a bottom surface of the soft-material package of the packaging. The shape of the dispensing slot includes, but not limited to, linear shape, slotted shape, and any geometric shape. The yielding hanger is disposed on a top surface of the soft-material package of the packaging; in other words, the top surface mounted with the yielding hanger is opposite the bottom surface formed with the dispensing slot. The yielding hanger is elongated in a direction parallel to the top surface of the soft-material package that is mounted with the yielding hanger. The yielding hanger has an arch and a tunnel, the arch protrudes away from the soft-material package, and a lengthwise direction of the tunnel is parallel to the top surface of the soft-material package that is mounted with the yielding hanger.

[0010] Advantages of the present invention are as follows: with the yielding hanger on the soft-material package, the packaging container for interfold tissue paper of the present invention can be simply hung on the roll holder, and thus the interfold tissue paper can be positioned on the wall and avoid getting wet and dusty, and facilitate use by the ambulant disabled, children and the elderly. Further, because the packaging container for interfold tissue paper has been positioned by the roll holder and the dispensing slot is opposite the roll holder, so that the tissue paper in the packaging can be easily drawn out with one hand. The existing roll holder can remain useful.

[0011] The material of the soft-material package is plastic film or paper with film lamination. The interfold tissue paper of the present invention may be presented in a variety of forms including, but not limited to, soft wipe, non-woven, air-laid paper, paper towel, facial paper, and napkin.

[0012] Preferably, the arch of the yielding hanger is integrally formed with the soft-material package to enhance stability, so that the packaging and the yielding hanger will not be broken during drawing out of the tissue paper.

[0013] Preferably, two opposite sides of the arch extend outwardly to each form a respective connecting sheet fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package. More preferably, the connecting sheets on two opposite sides of the arch are fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package via heat pressing. Although the yielding hanger is not integrally formed with the soft-material package, the yielding hanger and the packaging will not be easily detached since the connecting sheets have adequate contact areas with the packaging.

[0014] Preferably, two opposite sides of the arch extend outwardly to each form a respective connecting sheet with a respective adhesive layer facing the soft-material package, and the connecting sheets are fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package via the adhesive layers.

[0015] More preferably, the arch and the connecting sheets are integrally formed together to enhance stability of the yielding hanger, so that the arch and the connecting sheets will not be easily detached during drawing out of the tissue paper.

[0016] Preferably, two opposite sides of the arch are connected by a contact piece, which is fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package. The yielding hanger and the packaging will not be easily detached since the contact piece has an adequate contact area with the packaging.

[0017] More preferably, the arch and the contact piece are integrally formed together to enhance stability between the arch and the contact piece, so that the arch and the contact piece will not be easily detached during drawing out of the tissue paper.

[0018] Preferably, the yielding hanger is a pliable component. The yielding hanger can be folded to facilitate storage and transport of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper, and when in use, the yielding hanger can expand to form the hollow tunnel, allowing the packaging container for interfold tissue paper to be hung on the existing roll holder.

[0019] 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.

[0036] Referring to FIG. 1, the first embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper in the present invention comprises a packaging 10 and a yielding hanger 20A.

[0037] The packaging 10 further comprises a soft-material package 11 and a space 12. The soft-material package 11 may be a box or a bag, and preferably is a rectangular box. The space 12 is formed by the soft-material package 11. That is, the space 12 is formed inside the soft-material package 11, and the space 12 is used for accommodating the interfold tissue paper such as paper towel, facial paper, or napkin.

[0038] The soft-material package 11 comprises a dispensing slot 111A formed on a bottom surface of the soft-material package 11 of the packaging 10 and the yielding hanger 20A is provided on a top surface of the soft-material package 11 of the packaging 10.

[0039] In this embodiment, the shape of the dispensing slot 111B is slotted shape or any geometric shape.

[0040] The elongated yielding hanger 20A has a semicircular cross section, as shown in FIG. 1. The yielding hanger 20A is elongated in a direction parallel to the top surface of the soft-material package 11 that is mounted with the yielding hanger 20A.

[0041] Further, the yielding hanger 20A has an arch 21A and a tunnel 22A. The arch 21A protrudes away from the soft-material package 11, and the tunnel 22A is a space formed by the arch 21 and part of the top surface of the soft-material package 11. The tunnel 22A is elongated in a direction parallel to the top surface of the soft-material package 11 that is mounted with the yielding hanger 20A, and the yielding hanger 20A and the top surface of the soft-material package 11 that is mounted with the yielding hanger 20A are integrally formed.

[0042] Referring to FIG. 2, the first embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper of the present invention can be hung onto a roll holder 90. The roll holder 90 has two mandrel holders 91, which can be inserted in the roll core of the roll tissue paper to secure the roll tissue paper onto the roll holder 90. The first embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper of the present invention can be fixed on the roll holder 90 by inserting the two mandrel holders 91 of the roll holder 90 into the tunnel 22A of the yielding hanger 20A of the packaging container to take the tissue paper easily. Therefore, the roll holder 90 is applicable not only with the roll tissue paper but also with the interfold tissue paper by hanging the packaging container for interfold tissue paper of the present invention, effectively preventing the packaging container for interfold tissue paper from falling into the sink or the toilet.

[0043] Referring to FIG. 3, the first embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper of the present invention can also be hung onto another type of roll holder 90A via a mandrel holder 91A of the roll holder 90A inserted into the tunnel 22A of the yielding hanger 20A of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper.

[0044] Referring to FIG. 4, the second embodiment of the present invention similar to the first embodiment comprises a packaging 10 and a yielding hanger 20B, but the difference is that the arch 21B of the yielding hanger 20B and the top surface of the soft-material package 11 are not integrally formed and a dispensing slot 111B is formed by perforations. In this embodiment, the shape of the dispensing slot 111B is linear shape. Two opposite sides of the arch 21B of the yielding hanger 20B extend outwardly to each form a respective connecting sheet 23B fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package 11 via heat pressing. Therefore, the yielding hanger 20B can be fixed on the packaging 10 to allow the second embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper to hang onto the roll holder 90, 90A. Further, when in use, the dispensing slot 111B is formed after torn apart the perforations.

[0045] Referring to FIGS. 5A and 5B, when the second embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper is not in use, such as in storage and during transport, the yielding hanger 20B can be evenly flattened to the folded state; and when in use, the yielding hanger 20B can be expanded to hang the packaging container for interfold tissue paper on the roll holder 90, 90A. In addition, referring to FIGS. 6A and 6B, the yielding hanger 20B can be flattened on one side to the folded state; when in use, the yielding hanger 20B can be expanded to hang the packaging container for interfold tissue paper on the roll holder 90, 90A.

[0046] Referring to FIG. 7, the third embodiment of the present invention is similar to the second embodiment and comprises a packaging 10 and a yielding hanger 20C, but the difference is that the yielding hanger 20C is not fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package 11 by heat pressing but by adhesion. The connecting sheets each respectively have an adhesive layer 30 facing the soft-material package 11, and the connecting sheets 23C are fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package 11 via the adhesive layers 30. Therefore, the yielding hanger 20C can be fixed on the packaging 10 to hang the third embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper onto the roll holder 90, 90A.

[0047] Further, when in use, the arch 21B, 21C and the connecting sheets 23B, 23C are integrally formed to enhance stability of the yielding hanger 20B, 20C, so that the arch 21B, 21C and the connecting sheets 23B, 23C will not be easily broken during drawing out of the tissue paper.

[0048] Referring to FIG. 8, the fourth embodiment of the present invention is similar to the first embodiment and comprises a packaging 10 and a yielding hanger 20D, but the difference is that the arch 21D of the yielding hanger 20D and the top surface of the soft-material package 11 are not integrally formed. The two opposite sides of the arch 21D are connected by a contact piece 24, which is fixed on the top surface of the soft-material package 11, and the connection is not limited to heat pressing or adhesion as long the yielding hanger 20D can be fixed on the packaging 10 to hang the fourth embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper onto the roll holder 90, 90A.

[0049] Further, when in use, the arch 21D and the contact piece 24 of the yielding hanger 20D of the fourth embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper are integrally formed to enhance stability of the yielding hanger 20D, so that the arch 21D and the contact piece 24 will not be easily detached during drawing out of the tissue paper and can hang the packaging container for interfold tissue paper of the present invention onto the roll holder 90, 90A.

[0050] Referring to FIGS. 9A and 9B, the yielding hanger 20D of the fourth embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper is fixed on the soft-material package 11 by adhesion. When the fourth embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper is not in use, such as in storage and during transport, the yielding hanger 20D can be evenly flattened to the folded state; when in use, the yielding hanger 20D can be expanded to hang the packaging container for interfold tissue paper on the roll holder 90, 90A.

[0051] Referring to FIGS. 10A and 10B, the fifth embodiment of the present invention is similar to the first embodiment and comprises a packaging 10 and a yielding hanger 20E, but the difference is that the packaging 10 of the fifth embodiment of the packaging container for interfold tissue paper is preset with two lines of perforations 13, and the arch 21E and the tunnel 22E of the yielding hanger 20E are formed after the packaging 10 is torn apart from the two lines of perforations 13 to hang the packaging container for interfold tissue paper on the roll holder 90, 90A.

[0052] Referring to FIG. 11, the sixth embodiment of the present invention is similar to the first embodiment and comprises a packaging 10 and a yielding hanger 20F, but the difference is that the yielding hanger 20F is a band, and the two opposite ends of the band are fixed on the two opposite edges of the packaging 10 to form the arch 21F and the tunnel 22F to hang the packaging container for interfold tissue paper on the roll holder 90, 90A.
