WATER AND FIRE SHIELD FOR CHIMNEYS.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, \VAL'rnR J. CARRIER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Lansing, in the county of'Ingham and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Water and Fire Shields for Chimneys; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear,.and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains'to make and use the same, ref-- erence being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the-letters and figures of refer: encemarked thereon, which form a part of 5 this specification.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in water and fire shields for chimneys and comprises a simple and eficient device of this nature, having various details of construction, combinations and arrangements of parts which will be hereinafter fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings and then specifically defined in the appended claims.

I illustrate my invention in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a shield with the parts adjusted in place upon a roof. Fig. 2 is a sectional View taken on so line 22 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a sectional View taken on line 33 of Fig. 1, and Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the parts disassembled. Reference now being had to the details of the drawings by letter, A, A designate two to sides of the fire shields of the apparatus which have flanges A projecting from the upper edges thereof and at right angles thereto and which are adapted to engage the roof underneath the shingles in the manan ner shown clearly in Fig. 2 of the drawings, and at the ends of said sides are flanges C projecting parallel to each other and adapt ed to engage underneath the end plates B which have flanges 13 at their ends and a 4th downwardly inclined flange B as shown clearly in Figs. 0 and 4: of the drawings. A frame E, having a central opening for the reception of a chimney A", hasa circumfertial flange E When the parts A and B are llid assembled together, the flanges C extend underneath the downwardly inclined flanges B and both the ends and the sides A and B respectively rest upon the upper surface of the frame E with their lower ends surrounded by the flange E", It will be understood thatcthe l. icks of the chimney are adapted Patented (lot. 26, llil llsl Application-filed June 9, 1915. Serial No. 33,137. Y

to rest upon the frame E in the mann er shown in Figs. 2 and 3 of the drawings.

The water shield comprises the end plates F with parallel flanges F upon the opposite sides and an inclined portion F with ends projecting beyond the opposite ends of the flanges F and each projection is provided 'with a transverse beading F as shown clearlyin the drawings, and which extensions are adapted to pass underneath the shingles of the roof. The sides of the water shield are designated by letter H, there be ing two of similar construction, each having a vertically disposed flange H at its outer end and which flanges H have .heir suds H bent to form a downwardly extending hook which, when the parts are assembled, engage over the upper edges of the ends F.

Upon reference to Fig. 4 of the drawings, it will be noted that the sections of the water shield H have laterally projecting inclined flanges H", which terminate at their upper ends in flanges 11* adapted to overlap each other and at theinner marginal edge of the inclined portion of each section H is an upwardly turnedflange L forming a gutter intermediate the 'same and a heading H which latter is adapted to fit over the beading F, as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings. I

An adjustable cap J is adapted to fit over the upper ends of the sections of the water shield and one end of the c p has its flange at one end, designatedby letter J adjustable so that it may be pi'op,'ei'ly fitted to the water shield sections and has upwardly extending flanges J which are adapted to enanchored together and, by the provision of k the gutters formed on either side of the chimney, water will be prevented from leaking through the joints intermediate the parts. j

What I claim to be new is l. A. water and fire shield for chimneys, comprising a frame with an opening for the reception of a chimney and having an upwardly extending flange about its marginal edge, end fire] shield sections having latera ally extending and parallel flangesat' the ends thereof and adapted to rest upon said frame, inclined flanges at the, upper ends thereof, side fire sh-ields having laterally extending flanges at the ends engaging underneath said ddwnwardly inclined flanges and resting upon the frame, each side shield provided with outwardly inclined flanges, water shields comprising flanged end sections engaging said inclined flanges of the fire shield and having-laterally extending wings which are transverselybeaded, sectional side water shields with flanges provided with headings adapted to fit'over saill headings upon the extension of the end sections, and a cap fitted over the water shields.

2. A water and fire shield for chimneys, comprising a frame with an opening for the reception of a chimney and havingan upwardlyextending flange about its marginal edge, end tire shield sections having laterally extending and parallel flanges at the ends thereof and adapted to rest upon said frame, inclined flangesat the upper ends thereof. said tire shields having laterally extending flanges at the ends engaging underneath said downwa'rdy inclined flanges and resting upon the frame, each side shield provided with outwardly inclined flanges,

water shields comprising flanged end see trons engaging said inclined flanges of the fire shield and having laterally extending wings which are'transversely beaded, sectional side water shields with flanges provided with headings adapted to fit over said headings upon the extension of the end sections, said sectional shields having vertical flanges-with their upper ends bent to form hooks to engage over the upright portions of the end water shields, and a cap fitted over the upper ends of the Water shields.

3. A water and tire shield for chimneys, comprising a frame with an opening for the reception of a chimney and having an up wardy extending flange about its marginal edge, end fire shield sectio n's having laterally extending and paralldl flanges at the ends thereof and adapted to rest upon said frame, inclined flanges atgthe upper ends thereof, said fire shields having laterally extending flanges at the enids engaging underneat-h said downwardly inclined flanges and resting upon the frame, each side shield provided with outwardly inclined flanges, water shields comprising flanged end sections engaging said inclined flanges of the fire shield and having laterally extending wings which are transversely beaded, sec

,tional side water shields with flanges pro- .of the chimney.

4. A water and fire shield for chimneys, comprising a frame with an opening for the reception of a chimney and having an upwardly extending flange about its marginal edge, end the shield sections having laterally extending and parallel. flanges at the ends thereof and adapted to rest upon said frame, inclined flanges at the upper ends thereof, said tire shields having laterally extending llanges at the ends engaging underneath said downwardly inclined flanges and resting upon-the frame, each side shield provided with outwardly inclined flanges, water shields-coinprising flanged end sections engaging said inclined flanges of the fire shield and having laterally extending wings which are transversely headed, sectional side water shields, each ha vzng 2. laterally extending side flange with a heading formed therein and an inwardly extending vertically disposed flangeterniinating in a hook'at its upper end, an upwardly turned flange along the inner edge of'the inclined flange thereof, the upper ends of the in clined flanges adapted to overlap, and a cap fitted over the upper. ends of the water shield.

in testimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
