METAL DOOR.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 6, 1916.

Application filed July 8, 1915. Serial No. 38,708.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN OSCAR NYMAN, a subject of the King of Sweden, residing at Canton, in the county of Stark and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Metal Doors, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in metal doors, and more particularly to the means for holding panels or glass plates between the stiles and rails thereof; and the objects of the invention are to provide panel holding means which may be applied to a door without the use of rivets, screws or the like, and which are adapted to receive and firmly hold an ornamental molding on each side of the panel, also without the aid of rivets orscrews, such means being simple in construction, y'et r1g1d and durable. These objects are attained by providing a binder for the sheet metal walls of a stile or rail having hooked longitudinal edges adapted to be slid endwise into position over a pair of inwardly projecting flanges formed in the inner side edge of the stile or rail while the door is assembled, said binder being provided with'a channel adapted to receive and hold the panel or glass plate of the door. When it is desired to use a glass plate in the door, the top rail is provided with a detachable upper edge wall, the binder being formed in two parts yoked together by a channel bar suspended from the detachable wall, so that when the glass is,

broken, the channel bar may be withdrawn and a new glass may be inserted in the door inner side edge ofthe stile which are nor through the rail.

shown a doorhaving a steel panel in the lower portion and a glass plate in the upper portion in the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a front elevation of a door embodying my invention; Fig. 2, a fragmentary sectional view on line 2-2 Fig. 1; and Fig. 8, a fragmentary sectional View on line 33, Fig. 1.

Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the drawings.

The door comprises the stiles 1 connected together by means of a top rail 2, bottom rail 3, and intermediate rail 1, a glass plate 5 being inserted in the upper portion of the door, and a steel panel 6 in the lower portion of the door.

The stiles 1 and bottom rail 3 are preferably .formed from a single sheet of metal 7, the free ends 8 and 9 being bent inward toform the inner edge wall of the stile or ra1l and are provided with inwardly projectlng spaced flanges 10; the usual. sound deadener 11 of cork or other suitable material being provided between the side walls of the stiles or rails. V d

A binder 12 preferably formed of a sheet of cold drawn metal having its sides bent outward beyond the plane of its edges to form shoulders 13, and its longitudinal edges bent to form the hooks 141, is adapted to he slid endwise or telescoped over the flanges 10 and inner edge wall to connect the flanges together, in which position the shoulders 13 lie parallel with the inner edge wall of the stile or rail formed by the ends 8 and 9 of the sheet metal plate 7. Said bmder is provided with a channel extend mg inward midway between its sides, said channel being adapted to receive the edge of a panel or glass plate inserted therein.

A pair of longitudinal grooves 16 and 17 are provided in each'side of the binder 12, the groove 16 bein 13 and the groove 1 at the edge of the chan nel 15, said grooves being adapted to receive and hold an ornamental molding 18 also preferably formed of cold drawn metal, having inturned hooked edges 19 and 20 which are sprung into the grooves. The hooked edge 19 of saidmolding when inserted in the groove 16, serves as a wedge between the shoulder of the binder and the mally spaced apart for receiving the edge of the molding,'the entrance of which edge securely holds the binder with the flanges.

The construction of the intermediate rail 1 and binders is like that of the stiles and bottom rail, except that the rail is formed from two sheet metal plates 7 and 7 a in engagement binder being provided for both the top and depending flanges 22 adapted to fit in be tween the side walls of the rail, said upper edge wall being held in position flush with the top of the rail by means of spring catches 23 engaging with the beaded ends 24 of the flanges.

The opposite ends 8 and 9 of the plates 7 and 7 which form the inner edge wall K of the top rail, are flanged in the same manner as the free ends 8 and 9 forming the inner edge walls of the stile 1, and are connected together by means of a binder, which, for the purpose of permitting the glass or panel to be passed therethrough, is formed in two sections 12 and 12 having hooks 141: and 14: at one longitudinal edge and inturned parallel flanges 15 and 15 at the other longitudinal edge adapted to bear against the side of the glass plate 5 inserted between them, said flanges being yoked together means of a channel bar 25 suspended from the outer edge wall 21 by means of a support 26 secured thereto and to the channel bar by means of rivets 27 or the like.

It will be understood that if it is desired to use steel panels in the top portion of the door as well as the bottom, the binder 12 having the channel 15 may be used in the top rail as well as in the stiles and intermediate rail. 7

In assembling the door, the binders 12 are driven endwise over the inwardly projecting flanges 10 of'the metal plates forming the inner edge walls of the stiles and rails, and with the panel 6 and glass plate 5, in position between the binders, the stiles and rails 2, 3 and a are united together, as by welding, in a well-known manner. The ornamental molding 18 which may be of any desired shape or design, is then sprung into place in the grooves 16 and 17 in the binders by first engaging one hooked edge in its corresponding groove and then springing or forming the other hooked edge around the adjacent angle of the binder into its corresponding groove. The molding is thus firmly held in position, having no tendency to spring out of alinement and draw away from the face of the panel or plate.

My invention is not limited to the precise construction illustrated and described, but various changes in arrangement and construction may be made without departing from the spirit andscope thereof.

I claim:

1. In a metal door, a hollow stile or rail having pair of spaced flanges in its inner edge wall, and a binder on the inner edge wall engaging with said flanges for connecting them together, said binder hav ing a channel therein between its sides for receiving the edge of a panel, a longitudinal groove at each edge of the panel channel adapted to receive and hold one edge of an ornamental molding and a longitudinal groove in each side of the binder for receiving and holding the other edge of the ornamental molding adjacent the inner edge wall.
