Panel and fastening system for such a panel

The invention relates to a fastening system (1) for rectangular, tabular panels (2, 3, 10), especially floor panels. Comprising retaining profiles disposed on the small faces of said panels (2, 3, 10). Opposite retaining profiles match said retaining profiles in such a manner that similar panels (2, 3, 10) can be interlinked. The panels are provided with opposite first retaining profiles that are configured in such a manner that on a panel (2, 3, 10) being in first line a new panel (2) can be locked in second line by attaching the new panel (2) to the installed panel (3) at a temporary angle relative to the installed panel (3) and then swiveling it down into the plane of the installed panel (3). The panel further comprises opposite second retaining elements that comprise corresponding hook elements (6, 7). A hook connection (8) can be established by means of one of the hook elements (6, 7) of the new panel (2) and a hook element (6, 7) of a panel (3) that is already installed in second line by swiveling down the new panel (2). Every hook connection (8) is associated with an additional locking element (13, 22, 26, 27, 34, 35, 36, 40, 46) that prevents, in the hooked state of two panels (2, 3, 10), the hook connection (8) from being released in a direction perpendicular to the plane of the installed panels (2, 3 10).

A panel has a core of wood material or a wood material/plastic mixture, a top and an underside, and two opposite side edges, which have profiles that correspond to each other such that two identically configured panels can be connected and locked to one another in the horizontal (H) and vertical (V) directions by an essentially vertical joining movement. The locking in the horizontal direction (H) can be brought about by a hook connection with an upper locking section having a hook element and a lower locking section having a hook element. The locking in the vertical direction (V) can be brought about by at least one tongue element that is formed from the core in one piece and can be moved in the horizontal direction (H). The at least one tongue element provided on the lower locking section is free with respect to the core in the direction of the opposite side edge by means of an essentially vertical slot and during the joining movement snaps in behind a locking edge extending essentially in the horizontal direction (H), which locking edge is embodied on a locking projection. The tongue element is connected to the core on at least one of its two ends in the direction of its side edge (II), and the width (B1, B2) of the locking edge is different in size over the length (L) of the opposite side edge (I).
