- our son I PLASTER-IBLOCK-PARTITION CONSTRUCTION.

' U 4 Application filed October 12, 1923. Serial No. 668,045.

lates to certain clips for maintaining said blocks in proper position. I

The leading object of the present invention resides in the provision of a novel form of clip for maintaining plaster blocks in proper position with respect to one another and with respect to supporting channelirons. A further object is to provide a novel form of clip provided with off-set portions to secure spacing between certain of said blocks and between said blocks and the channel-irons for introduction of plastering material. Other and, further objects will appear hereinafter.

The invention consists of the im rovements hereinafter described and nally claimed. v

The nature, characteristic features and scope of the invention will be more fully understood from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in whichview, in section Fig. 1, is a fragmentary embodying of' a wall, ceiling or partition features of the present invention. Fig. 2, is a view in elevation. Fig. 3, is a perspective view of the clip shown at the right hand side of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4, is a similar view of the clip shown centrally of Fig. 2 and Fig. 5 is a similar view of the clip shown at the left hand side of Fig. 2.

A description will first be given of my improved plaster-block which is designated 10 in the drawings. I take about three parts of plaster-of-paris, about one part of powdered or finely granulated cork, a very small quantity of fibre, as wood pulp, cocoanut fibres or manila and a very small quantity of sulphite of zinc all of which I mix together in a dry state and then add thereto sufiicient "water to enable molding into slabs or blocks. The fibres above referred to constitute a binder and I prefer to employ a mixture of long and short fibres. The sultween adjacent edges phite of zinc is used to hasten hardening. The slabs or blocks are of rectangularconfiguration and bevelled upon one face as Referring now to the manner of positionmg these plaster-blocks 10, use is made of the usual supporting channel-irons 12 between which the blocks are arranged so that the blocks are spaced from each other and also from said channel irons. This spacing is secured because of the novel form of clips employed and the purpose is to permit of the introduction of a maximum amount of plastering material between adjacent blocks and between the blocks and the channelare employed of which the type shown in Fig. 3, is used throughout the'major portion of a job for securing the blocks to channel irons; of which the type irons. 1 Three forms of clips of the blocks; and of which the type shown in Fig. 5, is used only at that part of a job when a channelironabuts against-a wall, partition or the like to which channel-iron plaster-blocks are shown in Fig. 4, is'used bea to be secured. A description of such clips 7 will now be given in the order above named.

Referring to Fig. 3, the clip,

stamped from metal as an integral part, is

shown as comprising a body 13 the central portion of which is raised or off-set as at 14. Extending from this off-set portion and at right, angles thereto are. a pair of plaster-block engaging arms 15, one of which is apertured as at 16, for nail penetration in order that the clip and a 'block may be secured with respect to one another. Extending in an opposite direction fromthe body 13 are two sets of arms 17-17 and 18--18 adapted to engage around a channeliron 12 and anadjacent plaster-block. At leastone arm 17 and one arm tured for nail reception as indicated at 19. It is thus seen that with a clip in use the ofl-set part 14. is free of a channel-iron and non-olf-set part of a clip abuts against a channel iron so that a space 20 is resent between a block and channel iron. he clip is secured with respect to a channel iron by which is V 18 1s ape'r- I means of a part 21 stamped out from the off-set part of body 13 which in use is bent over upon a channel-iron as clearl shown at the right hand side of Fig. 1. tops 22 are provided arms 17-18 against which an edge of a plaster-block abuts as best seen-in Fig. 1.'

Referring now to Fig. 4, the clip, which is also stamped from a single blank comprises a body 23 the central portion of which is raised or oil-set as at 24. Extending from this off-set part 24 are a pair of arms 25 and extending in an opposite direction from the non-off-set portion of said body are two pairs of arms designated 26-26 and 27-27. 7

shown is employed where, for instance, a

partition end abuts against a wall. In such case a channel-iron is positioned directly against such wall and the arms 15 as shown in Fig. 3, are unnecessary. Instead a special means of clip attachment to a channel-iron is provided. The body 29 of this clip is off-set as at 30. Extending from said offset part is an angular arm 31 adapted to engage around a channel-iron which arms has struck-out therefrom a stop 32, see left-hand side of Fig. 1, against which a channel iron abuts. The ofi-set part has struck-out therefrom a lip 33 for engaging a channel iron. Thus a clip is secured to the channel-iron with the off-set, abuttin thereagainst. Extending from the non-o set portion are two pairs of arms 34i34 and 35-35 for engaging around a plasterblock some of which arms are apertured for nail reception in order that the clip and block may be secured together. As so positioned a space 36 is present between a block and a channel-iron. The spaces 36-28 and 20 above described permit of the rece tion of plastering material whereby a good 0nd is effected between adjacent plaster-blocks and between plaster-blocks and channel irons. This is possible because of. the off-set features of the clips above described and commercially betters the class of work under consideration.

What I claim is:-= p

1. A clip of the character stated comprising a body portion which is centrally raised or olf-set, spaced parallel arms extended from said off-set part at right angles thereto and other arms arranged in pairs extended in parallelism in opposed relation to the first mentioned arms and from parts'of said body arranged in a plane different from that of said ofi-set.

' 2. A clip of the character stated comprising a body portion which is centrally raised or off-set, spaced parallel arms extended from said off-set part at right angles thereto and other arms arranged in pairs extended in parallelism in opposed relation to the first mentioned arms and from parts of said bodyarranged in a plane difierent from that of said off-set at least some of said arms being for plaster-block engagement.

3. A clip of the character stated comprising a body portion which is centrally raised or off-set, spaced parallel arms extending from said off-set part at right angles thereto and other arms arranged in pairs extended in parallelism in opposed relation to the first mentioned arms and from parts of said body arranged in a plane different from that of said off-set at least some of said arms being for plaster-block, and channel-arm engagement.

4. A clip of the character stated comprising a body portion which is centrally raised or off-set, spaced parallel arms extended from said oif-set part at right angles thereto and other arms arranged in pairs extended in parallelism in opposed relation to the first mentioned arms and from parts of said body arranged in a plane difierent from that of said off-set said off-set portion having stamped out therefrom a channelarm engaging lip.

5. A clip of the character stated comprising a body portion which is centrally raised or off-set, spaced parallel arms extended from said off-set part at right angles thereto. and other arms arranged in pairs extended in parallelism in opposed relation to the first mentioned arms and from parts of'said body arranged in a plane different from that of said off-set some of said arms being provided with plaster-block engaging lips arranged at right angles to said arms.

6. A clip of the character stated comprising a body portion which is centrally raised or off-set, an angular, channel-iron engaging arm extended from said oil-set portion, a channel iron engaging lip struck-out from said ofi-set and pairs of block engaging arms spaced from one another-extended from the oil-set portion of said body in a direction opposed to said angular arm.

7. A clip of the character stated comprising a body portion which is raised or oil'- set spaced arms extended from said oft-set part substantially at right angles thereto and other arms extended in opposed relation to the first mentioned arms and from parts of said body portion arranged in a plane different from that of said off-set.

In testimony whereof, I' have hereunto signed my name. i
