Patented Jan. s, 1922.

Application l'ed November 11, 1920, Serial No. 423,379.

To aZZ whom it may concern.'

Be it known that I, HENRI GAUVIN, a subject of the King of Great Britain, a resident of the city of Saskatoon, Province of Saskatchewan, Dominion of Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wall or Building Constructions, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in wall or building construction, and the obj ects of the invention are to construct a wall which will be properly insulated both as regards cold and heat, so that any building constructed with walls of this type will be warm in the winterandcool in the summer,

to perniit of the ready assembly of the several parts of the wall, and generally to adaptr them to` better perform the functions required of them.

' With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists essentially of the improved construction lhereinafter described and set forth in the following specification and accompaying drawings forming part of ythe same. f

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of my improved wall.

Fig. 2 vis a horizontal section.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary vertical section of the improved wall.

Like characters of reference refer to like parts in the several figures.

Referring to the drawings, A represents the improved wall comprising a plurality of vertically disposed studs 10, which may be vof any suitable size andspaced to any suitable extent compatible with strength and with the type of building under construction.

On each stud 10 a furring rod 11 is provided and metallic-laths 12 are connected thereto by staples 13 or like fastening means, the metallic laths 12 being attached to the studding by starting at the top 'and working downwardly so that each lower lath will overlap the higher adjacent one.

I These laths may be of any usual construction having orifices therethrough provided with suitable binding edges to hold thematerial with which the laths are covered.v The outer face of the laths have three coats of stucco (Portland cement) 14 applied thereto, and one coat of back plaster 15 is applied to the inner face of the laths 12 between the studding, and this back plaster is coated with hot asphalt as indicated at 16.

The inner wall consists of heavy felt paper v17 which is treated with a heavy coat of hot asphalt and is attached to the studs in any convenient manner, and wooden laths 18 are then attached to the studs 10 above the heavy felt paper, and on the laths a coating of inside plaster 19 is applied. The space between the inner and outer members of the wall andA studs is packed with granulated cork or shavings 20 or any other heat insulating material.

This wall will be readily assembled or built and will insulate the building against' cold and heat, so thatthe building will retain the heat from a heating system in winter time, and in summer will exclude the external heat.

As many changes could be made in the above construction and many widely different embodiments of my invention within the scope of the claims, constructed without departing from the spirit or scope thereof, it is intended that all matter contained in the accompanying specification and drawings shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

WhatI claim as my invention is:

1. Wall construction consisting of a plurality of spaced studs, furring rods and metallic laths attached to the outer edgeo-f the studs and adapted to receive coatings of outside plaster and a coating of inside plaster between the studs, the inside coating of plaster havin -asphalt applied thereto, the inner ed es o the studs having lath and plaster applled thereto.

2. Wall construction comprising a plu-.

rality of spaced studs, furring rods and metallic laths attached to the outer edges of the studs, laths being applied from the top to the bottom of the wall, so that the underlaths will overlap `the adjacent upper laths, the laths being designed to receive plaster on the outer face, and plaster on the inner face between the studs, the inner coating of plaster being treated with asphalt, the inner edges of the studs having a flexible material x treated with asphalt attached thereto and having an outer face of lath .and plaster, the space between the inner and outer portions of the wall being lilled with insulatingun/a terial.

3. The Wall constructionv claimed in claim studs is filled With granulated cork or wood shavings. y

4; Wall construction comprising a plurality of spaced studs and metallic laths attached to the outer edges of the studs, laths being applied from the top to the bottom of the Wall, so that the underlaths will overlap the adjacent upper laths, the laths being designed to receive plaster on the outer face,

and plaster on the'inner face between the studs the inner edges 'of the studshaving a flexible material treated with asphalt attached thereto and having an innermost face of lath and' plaster, the space betWeeIT the inner and outer portion of the Wall being filled With insulating material.

In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand inthe lpresence of a Witness.
