Application mea March 13, 1922. mm1 Hamster f TQ all whom t concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM F. MUIR, a Subj ect of the King of Great Britain, having declared my intention of becoming a citizen of the2 United Sltates, residing at Fresno, in the county of Fresno and State of California, have inventedcertain new and useful Improvements in Drain Boards for Sinks, of which the following is a specification.

M invention relates primarily to a combined drain board and apron for sinks, and the object thereof is to provide a device of 'that character of a unit or knocked down construction which can be easily and quickly assembled and positioned for use. j

A further object is to provide, in a device of the above character, means for producing water tight joints between'the various units thereof. l

A still further object is to provide a. device of the above character having an outer exposed face of metal which may be enameled or otherwise ornamented and a body1 of a plastic composition such as concrete, cla or the like. f

ther objects and advantages will appear hereinafter and, while I have shown and will describe the preferred form of my device, I wish it to be specifically understood that I do not limit myself to such preferred form, but that various changes and adaptation may be made therein ,without departing from the spirit of my invention. 1

In the drawings accompanying and forming` a part hereof;

ig. 1 is a perspective view'of the preferred form of my device.

Fig. 2 is a diagrammatic front elevation of my device.

Fig. 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Fi 1. Fig. l4 is an enlarged sectional detail of a portion of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a sectlon on 1 and 9. l

Figs. 6 and 7 are enlargedsectional views ofportions, of Fi 5.

Fig. 9 is a perspective elevation of another form of my device.

Fig. 10 a sectlon on the line 10-10 of the une 5;-5 of Figs;

j Fig. 9.

Figs. l2 and 13 are a fragmentary top plan and front edge elevation perspectivelyLk of a portion of my device.

Fig. 14 is a diagrammatic front elevation of another formfof my device.

F 1g. 15 is a left-hand end elevation of the parts shown in Fig. 14.

Fig. 16 is an enlarged fragmentary detail of another form of my invention.

Referring `to the drawings my device which comprises a b-ack member or apron 15, provided with ears 16 by means of which said apron is secured in position upon the wall, the ends of which apron rest upon the inner edge of the drain boards 17 and 18, and the portion 19 of which projects downwardl and rests upon the upper face of the .Aren-formes.

rim o the sink 20a at the rear. Drain boards 'n 17 and 18 are provided with the usual drain grooves 2O and 21. Apron 15 is provided centrally of its length with a soap recess 22 and apertures 23 and 24 through which the usual faucets project. The front edges of drain boards 17 and 18 are connected by a cross member 25 which rests upon the upper face of the rim of 20 at the front edge` thereof. Members 25 and drain boards 17 and 18 are connected together by means of dowel lpins 26 and 27 as best shown in` Figures 12 and 13.

In the construction of members 15, 17, 18y and 25 the outer faces 28 are formed preferably from sheet metal pressed into shallow troughs of the desired configuration and members 17, 18 and 25v have their interiors filled with plastic composition 29, such as concrete or the like tie members 30 being provided on the inner face of said members to hold said plastic composition positioned cess 31 which is adapted 'to surround bead Y 32 provided in the inner edge of members 17 and 18 but being spaced therefrom and this space is lled with a plastic material, such as putty, which provides water tight joint between said members, as best shown in Figures 3 and 4. Extending along the lower edge of central portion 19 of member 15 is a semi-circular recess 34 which rests upon the upper face of the rim of the sink 20, which recess is filled with a plastic material such as putty andv provides a water tight joint therebetween. A. similar joint 35 is provided between the contacting faces of members 17 im@ 18 and 25 and sink 20.

ln positioning my device the usual frame work for the sink is provided. The sink is placed in position thereon, it being understood that afrecess will be provided for the rim of the sink, whereby the upper face of the sink will be parallel with the upper edges of the support. Member is then positioned upon the front edge of the rim of the sink. Members 17 and 18 are then positioned thereon, the dowel pins 26 and 27 being projected in the apertures in members 17 and 18 to lock the same together, and expansion bolts or screws or any other suitable fastening devices are used to secure members 17 and 18 in the desired position to hold the same against accidental displace` ment. rllhe recess in the lower edge of member 15 is then filled with putty or any other suitable material and member 15 is then positioned with its lower end resting upon the bead 32 and pressed downwardly until a tight joint is formed between member 15 and members 17 and 18 and sink 20. Suitable fastening means such as screws, nails, or the like are then projected through holes 37 in ears 16 into the wall to hold the upper edge of member 15 securely positioned.

in the form shown in Figures 9, 10 and 11 my construction is essentially the same as in the preferred form with the exception that the drain boards and -its component part of the apron are formed from a single piece and the portion bridging the distance between and across the sink is formed sepad raly, water tight `joint being provided between the abutting edges thereof as best shown in Fig. 11, otherwise the construction is the same. n

lin the form shown in Figs. le and 15 the construction is essentially the same with the exception that each drain board has its own individual apron formed separately and a separate portion is provided for the sink, water tight joints being provided between the contacting portions as hereinbefore explained. The object of this construction being to provide a device which may be varied or adjusted to suit varying conditions such as the iength of the sink and the width and length of the drain boards.

l'n Fig. i6 is shown another method of forming a water tight joint surrounding the sink. "in this forni i provide the sink 205' with an upstanding rim 20b around the outer edge thereof and in the undersides of members 17, 18 and 25 and the lower edge of member 19. i provide a recess 28a within which the rim 2Gb is positioned, the recess 281 being first fiiled with cement or putty.
