WINDOW FRAME.

Application filed September 6, 1922. Serial No. 586,443.

' which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to windows and frames therefor.

More particularly the invention relates to a window frame and sash wherein these parts are arranged so that the sash may be tilted in the window frame for ventilation is to provide improved means for retracting such beads. I

With theabove and other objects in view as will be hereinafter apparent, the invention consists in general of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically claimed. 1 a

In the accompanying drawingslike charactcrs of reference indicate like parts in the several views, and

In theembodiment of this invention herein disclosed there is provided a window frame which includes the bottom, or sill members 10, side members 11 and top 12.

drawn out of this socket.

Each of these side members is builtup of an outer member 13. an inner member 14, and a transverse member 15. A spacing member 16 is also employed adjacent the outer member 13 and in the channel formed by the members 14, 15, and 16, there are provided certain movablebead members consisting of a parting bead 17 andguide beads 18 connected at their backs to a vertical member 19. urged forward by springs 20 but provision is made whereby they can be retracted entirely within the side casing. Stationary bars 32' extend between beads 17 and 18 and are connected in any suitable manner to the bottom 10 and top 12. In order to retract the beads a shaft 21 isjournalled in the members 13 and 14 and on the inner end of this shaft is a swinging'crank arm 22 which has pivoted to its free end a crank handle 23 having a projecting end' 24 adapted to enter a socket 25 countersunk into the face of the respective member 14. By this means thecrank is prevented from rotating except whenthe projection 24 is shaft 21 is a pair of strips or cords 26each of which passes through an opening 27 in the member 15, one of these openings being located above and theother below the shaft 21 and for the purpose of rendering the motion through these openings smooth pulleys 28 are provided therein. The :ends of the cords 26 are secured to the backing strip 19 of the beads adjacent the springs20. By this means rotation of the crank 22 will effect rotation of the shaft 21 and draw both ends of the beads backward against the pressure of the springs 20, the projection 24 being inserted in its socket when it is desired to hold these beads. in the backwardly drawn position. Sliding between the beads are the sash 29 and extending through the side rails of each sash is asleeve 30, wherein is a movable pin 31 engageable in. one or the other of a series of openings 32 in the bars 32'. At the top of the frame are pulleys 33 over which extend the sash cords 34, these sash cords being detachably connected to the tops of the sash by means of clips 35engageable with pins36" in pockets 36 in the top rail of each sash. Thus it is evident that the sashes are counterbalanced by each other. Extending through the top rail of the lower sash is the locking pin 37 which may be released, by the action of 9.

These beads are ordinarily Secured to the cam lever 38, from a socket plate 39 in the bottom rail of'the upper sash. A spring 40 normally urges the pin 37 into socket plate 39 and it is obvious that only when it is desired to lock the two sash from all movements is this device used. 7

In operation, when it is desired to tilt the windows either for the purpose for ventilation or for cleaning, the lever38 is manipulated to free the two sash for relative movement. The cranks are then rotated to draw the guide and parting beads backward, thus freeing the sash. Previous to this the sash has been adjusted and the pins inserted in one of the openings 32 so that when the parting beads are drawn back the sash may swing on thesefpins and in order to permit this swinging movement the clips 35 are disengaged from pins: 36" thereby relieving the sash from the influence of the sash weights. It "will be noted that after the sash have been swung to the proper position the parting beads may be released and the springs will force them against the edges of the sash and thereby frictionally hold the said sash in adjuste position. v

There has thus been provided a simple and efficient device of the kind described and for the purpose specified.

It is obvious that minor changes may be made in the form and construction of the invention without departing from the ma- U terial spirit thereof. It is not, therefore, desired to confine the invention to the exact form herein shown and described but it is desired to include all such as properly come within the scope claimed.

Havin thus described the invention what is claimed as new, is c 1. In window construction, a window frame having side rails, retractile guide and parting beads carried by said side rails, springs urging said beads into normal protracted position, backing strips each having the beads of one side connected thereto and against which said springs bear, and means at each side of the frame to retract'both ends of the respective strip and beadsin unison, andcomprising a shaft extending across the respective side rail, ropes connected, to said shaft and leadingupwardly and downwardly therefrom respectively and each having its free end connected to a cor- V responding portion of the backing stri pulleys over which the ropes pass to gui e portions of the same at right angles to the strip,crank,means for said shaft, and releas'able locking means for the crank means.

2. "In window construction, a window frame having side rails, retractile guide and parting-bea dscarried by said side rails; springs urging said beads into'normal protracted positions, backing strips each havingthe beads of one side connected thereto and against which' said springs bear, and

or pulleys over which the ropes pass to guide portions of the same at right angles to the strip, a crank arm pivoted to one end of the shaft, and a crank handle carried by the free end of said arm and having a projection thereon at right angles to the arm, said frame provided with sockets for receiving the projections.
