Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed April 26, 1920. Serial No, 376,750.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, SAMUEL S. MARoUs, a citizen of the United States, and a resident ofthe city of New York, borough of the Bronx, in the county of Bronx and State of New York, and SAMUEL KRAKAUER, a citizen of the United States, and a, resident of the city-of New York, borough of Brooklyn, in the county of- Kings and. State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Spring Pad, of which the following is afull, clear, and exact description.
jThe invention relates to spring pads such as are used in seats, cushions, mattresses and the like, and its object is to provide a new and improved sprlng or cushion pad which is simple in construction, cheap to manufae ture, and arranged for convenient insertion in a casing in any desired number of units.
Another object is to permit of conveniently forming the pockets inpairs for corresponding pairs of springs. Y Another object is to hold the springs under the desired tension 'within the pockets.
' With these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction as hereinafter shown and described and then specifically pointed out in the claims.
A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of thisspecification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Figure l is a plan View of the spring pad; Figure 2 is a cross section of the same on the line 22 of Figure 1; and
Figure 3 is a reduced plan View of a plu; rality of units of spring pads assembled.
The spring pad, in its general construction, comprises units of like construction, each unit having two rows of springs 10 and 11 contained and enclosed singly in pockets 12 and 13 formed by top and bottom members or pieces 14: and 15 of muslin, duck, canvas, or other suitable textile or other fabric. In the manufacture of the unit, the
top and bottom members 14 and 15- arefirst fastened together lengthwise by a middle the springs.
of each pocket is less than the height of 'a spring in expanded condition, as indicated in dotted lines in Figure 2. The springs 10 andll are inserted in the pockets 12 and 13 through their open sides and then the side edges of the fabric members 14 and 15 are formed into overlying flanges 25, 26 and 27, 28 fastened together lengthwise by rows of stitches 29, thus completely enclosing each spring singly in a pocket. It will be noticed that by the arrangement described the unit can be made in any desired length containing a large number of pairs of pockets and springs. The springs 10 andll of a pair are'so arranged that, their'convolutions break joints and overlap (see Figure 2) and adjacent springs 10 and adjacent springs 11 are similarly arranged one relative to the other to allow each spring to cushion properly without interferin with an adjacent spring and to render tfie unit exceedingly compact.
The top and bottom convolutions of the springs 10 and 11' are fastened together and to their pockets 12 and 13 by top and bottom clips 30, 31, and similar. top and bottom clips 32, 33 fasten the top and bottom convolutions of'adjacent springs 10' and their pockets 12 together, and top and bottom clips 34 and 35 fasten the top and bottom convolutions of adjacent. springs 11 and their pockets 13 together. By the arrange ment described an exceedingly compact structure is produced in which the sprlngs are not liable to wabble or unduly strain or tear their pockets.
claim as new and desireto secure by Letters Patent 1 i p 1. In a spring paid, a spring unit, com-. prisingpairs of coiled springs,'and pairs of pockets, each, pocket containing and "completely enclosing a spring singly, the pockets of the entire unit being formed of two pieces of fabric, and means fastening the pieces together lengthwise and transversely betweenthe springs and lengthw se outside of 2. In a spring pad, a spring unit, comof a fabric material providing a top and a bottom member, means fastening the fabric -members together lengthwise between the rows and transversely inspaced relation to form the pockets with the sides open for the insertion of the springs, the sides of the fabric members providing overlying flanges,
and fastening means fastening the flanges together.
3. In a spring pad, a spring unit, comprising two rows of springs, one alongside the other, the springs in each row being arranged side by side, t e springs in one row being directly opposite the springs in the other row, the springs of each row and the springs of the. rows having their convolutions overlapping, pockets containing and enclosing the springs singly in compressed condition, the pockets of the entire unit being formed of a fabric material providing a top and a bottom member, means fastening the fabric members together lengthwise between the rows, transversely between adjacent pairs of sprin s and lengthwise outside of the rows, and astening means connecting the adjacent springs and their pockets together.
