Specificationpf Letters Patent. Patented Feb. 19, 19 18.

Application filed July 26, 1915. Serial No. 42,053.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that/I, HERBERT J. NILE, a citizen of the United. States, residing at Rough and Ready, in the county of Nevada and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Protective'Coveringsfor Glass Panes, of which the following is a specification.

by this invention to providea sheet of paper of thesame dimensions asthe glass to be covered; to provide an adhesive perimetral strip along the margins of the paper and to separate such adhesive strip from the main portion of the paper by perforated division lines permitting a ready separation of the central portion of the paper from its gummed edge.

- -The above and. additional objects which will be hereinafter more specifically treated, are accomplished by such means as are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, de scribed in the following SPBClfiCiLtIOII' and their more particularly pointedout in the claim which is appended hereto and forms a part of this application.

With reference to the drawings, wherein there is illustrated the preferred embodiment of this invention as it is reduced to practice, and throughout the several views 'of which like characters of reference designate similar-parts: t

Figure 1 isa view in perspective showing a sheet or pane of glass applied on both surfaces with a protectivecovering as comprehended by this invention, and

Fig. 2 is a similar view, showing the initiation of the process of removing the I main portion of the surface from its gummed margins.

One of the annoyances to which the use of glass panes for windows, skylights and the like is subject, is the fact that the glass, asv

freshly received, is stained and dirtied by putty, oil, paint, and finger marks, which must be removed, at the-expense of much exertion before the glassis fit for use. The dis figuring of the glass occurs through the handling thereof, either during shipment or installation in the presence of some of the mentioned staining materials and can read 11y be obviated by a protective covering adapted to receive the stains and prevent a contamination thereby f the protected pane.

Accordingly, this invention proposes to provide a protective covering formed of a heavy paper, which may. be waxed or similarly treated in order to toughen it as well as rendering it transparent. A sheet of paper A of the dimensions of the pane to be covered is provided for each of its surfaces. Each of these paper coverings has its margin provided with a strip B the reverse side of which is coated with a suitable adhesive substance, for the entire perimeter of thepaper sheet. Lines of perforations C separate the gummed strips B from the central portion of the paperin themanner'clearly serted within its frame and all handling 1ncident to the installation thereof is finished,"

an incision may be made along the perforations at one of the corners of the paper sheet and the latter then torn off inthe manner illustrated in Fig. 2. The gummed edges B of the sheet do not need to be removed for the reason that they are covered'by the securing putty for theglass pane. Both sur-' faces of the pane are thus protected and are fresh for use immediately after installation without any of the previously necessary and arduous cleansing.

Whlle in the foregoing, however, there has thus been illustrated in the drawings, and

. described in the specification such combination and arrangement of elements as constitute the preferred embodiment of this invention, it is desired to emphasize the fact that such minor changes in the matters of proportion and degree may be made in later adaptations of this device as shall not alter the spirit of the invention as defined in the appended claim.

2 emme What' is elaimed is:

A package including a pane of glass, a sheet of paper of the dimensions of fihe pane ,of glass pasted on each face of said glass at 5 the margins only, each of said sheets 0f paper being provided with perforatienswvithjn the pasted margins to permit mnpashed portions of the paper sheets being mein presenee (of mm witnesses.
