Application filed December 2, 1924, Serial 1W0. 753,500, and in Australia January 8, 192 1.

This invention relates to improvements in insectproof cots, or beds and the like furniture.

My object has been to provide a construction which can be readily puttogether, or collapsed for transport, which will provide for facile opening and closing, and which will overcome the objections frequently.

raised to the use of mosquito netting.

According to the invention, as applied to a childs cot, for example, it comprises two side frames and two shorter end frames litted together to form a rectangular structure. These frames are of openwork, being preferably sheet metal stamped in one piece to a suitable openwork design, but yet sufficiently rigid for the purpose. The end frames at the angles are extended downwardly to form legs which are provided with suitable castors. The end frames are higher than the side frames, being upwardly extended in an arc of a circle and on the extension are pivoted two segmental cover frames also of suitable openwork, preferably stamped sheet metal. These cover frames are so pivoted that each is independently slidable one within the other. In their normal or closed position their lower ends rest over the top of the side frames or on supports adjacent thereto.

Each of the frames including the slidable covers are fitted with metal gauze or other netting material sufficiently fine to prevent the passage of mosquito and similarly sized insects therethrough.

But in order that my invention may be more clearly comprehended I will now describe same with reference to the drawings herewith which illustrate its application to a childs cot.

Figure 1 Figure 2 is a tion.

Figure 3 is an end elevation partly in section on line 3-3, Figure 2, while Figure 1 is a diagrammatic view illustrating the movements of the two segmentally circular covers.

Figure 5 is a part side elevation of the bracket. for attaching the mattress to end. frames is a perspective view, and

side elevation partly n see- Figure 6 is a part section of one method of reinforcing the edges of the wire or use screens.

The same numera throughout.

101O are the end frames made in one piece, provided with castors or the like 11, and 1212 are the side frames, riveted, bolted, or otherwise secured to the end frames. -3 and 1 1 are the segmental covers pivoted at 15 and 16 to each end frame, so that they may be moved to close one over or under the other as illustrated in Figure 4 by the dotted lines. Each cover is formed with a flattened tangential extension 17 so that when one cover is moved under the other one, this flattened portion will limit the travel. In the case of full size bedsteads, the extension 17 may be lengthened so as to dispense with the sides 12-12.

18 is the mattress provided with plates 19 at its four corners, which plates are slotted at 20 and 21 to fit over pins or studs provided on the end members of frames 10. The ends 10, sides 12, and covers 13 and 14: are fretted or stamped out to a suitable de sign, which cut away portions or openings are closed by wire or gauze screens 22, suitably secured to the inside of these several members to prevent the ingress of insects. The edges of these screens 22 are preferably reinforced as at 23 in Figure 6, by folding a strip of galvanized iron or other suitable material over the edge of the gauze and pressing the iron and strip together but other known methods may be employed.

In use either half of the segmental cover may be moved on its pivot to afford access to the cot, and on being returned to its normal position, the cot is made insect proof.

I claim:

An insect-proof cot, bed and the like having end and side frames formed of stamped thin material with openings therein throughout the areas thereof, the end frames having top arcuate extensions with opposed straight edge portions adjacent the juncture thereof with the end frames, two segmental cover frames pivoted respectiyely to the central lower pardons of the said ions each .asheet fill/b31713 indicate like parts also having an open Work structure, the upper edge portions of the segmental covering frames having an overlapping association when closed and the lower portions of the said cover frames being constructed in straight lines to cooperate With the lower straight edges of the said extensions to limit the movement of the cover frames when the have hereunto
