GEORGE PULLETS, on NEW YORK, EQY ASSIGNOR or ONE-HALF T0 PAUL RAIA, or
NEW YoRK, 1 I.Y.
1 WINDoW- EAM To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE PULLETS, a citizen of the United States, and residing in New York, in the county of the Bronx and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Vindow- Frames, of which the following is a specifi cation, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to window frames in general use with the ordinary two sash window, and particularly to means for removing the guard rails inclosing the side of the sash and forming a groove for the sash to slide up and down, and the object thereof is to provide an improved device by means of which said guard rails may be withdrawn and the sash and pane removed from the entire frame, and reversed for the purpose of cleaning the outer surface of the glass, and the sash then replaced to its former position and the guard rails reset.
In the generally used window frame, it is necessary for a person cleaning the glass, to pass a portion of his body through the opening of the frame, and from that position to complete the cleaning process of the outer surface of the pane; but by means of my improvement, this will be unnecessary, and the person so cleaning the window may, by the operation of my improvement, cause the guard rails of the sash to recede, and then withdraw the sash and pane.
The invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawing forms a part, in which the separate parts of my improvement are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views, and in which Figure 1 is a full view of a window frame, sash and pane, showing guard rails of the sash, and groove. Fig. 2 is a plan View of my said improvement, showing my improvement attached to the guard rails. Fig. 3 is a sectional view of my said improvement, showing same attached to guard rails.
In the drawing forming part of this speci fication I have shown at (a) the guard rails for the sash and pane, forming a groove (6) along which the sash slides up and down, thus permitting the opening and closing of the window, and (0) indicates the sash containing the window panes: ((1') indicates a division of the guard rails (a) slightly I Specification of Letters Patent. P t nt d Fe 1, 1916 iiii iii c'atibn'fiied sweater-1911;, s'eria frni.4821.63 v I above the meeting place of sashes (c), it being intended that the upper portion of guard rails (a) shall be stationary and the lower half movable. It will be seen that the guard rails (a) render it impossible to move the sashes in any other way than up and down, and that therefore to reach the outer surface of the panes it is necessary to be on the outer side, or to reach to that outer side, and in the practice of my improvement I provide a means of removing the sash and pane from the frame entirely.
In Fig. 2 (a) represents the lower half of the guard rails, in this instance being shown as movable, the dotted line (e) representing their position when holding the sash in place; (g) is a metal strip, of which two will be used in my improvement, which are placed crosswise as indicated in Fig. 3. These metal strips are afiixed to guard rails (a) at (7). At (h) I have shown a chain which is fastened to the intersection of metal strips (g); (m) is a bridge or housing aflixed to the window frame at (n) which is between guard rails (a) and (m) is a portion of bridge (m) but slightly higher. Inside of the bridge (m) is a spring (70) which is affixed to metal strip (9) at its smaller end, and fastened to (m) under the elevation of bridge at (m) at the other end of spring (it). Through (la) the chain (72.) passes up into the elevation of bridge (m) and around a pulley (j) shown in Fig. 2, which pulley will turn on an axle passing through the sides of (m). Chain (it) after passing over pulley (7') will continue through elevation (m) and through opening (0) and will come through on to the outer surface of the side of the window frame, which is inside the room of which the frame is a part. Chain (71,) will have a small ring or knob on this end, and will be so constructed that when it has been drawn out tooperate the device, it may be hooked to a small hook on the surface of the window frame and held in position so that spring (is) cannot pull it back until the work of cleaning the window is finished and the window sash replaced.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
