UNITED STATES WILBUR C. STREETER, OF HOUSTON, TEXAS.
Application filed February 27, 1926.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a window sash casing.
One object of the invention is to provide, in building construction, a novel type of casing for window sashes whereby the upright studding forming part of the building framework, may be utilized as a part of the casing for the window sashes thus dispensing with the necessity of providing separate side members for said casing..
lVith the above and other objects in view this invention has particular relation to certain novel features of construction, arrangement of parts and use, an example of which is given in this specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure 1 shows an inside view of a wall, with the ceiling removed from the framework and showing the window sashes installed.
Figure 2 shows a transverse sectional View of the wall and window casing, showing the sashes installed, and
Figure 3 shows a similar viewshowing another type of wall.
Referring now more particularly to the drawings, wherein like numerals of reference designate similar parts in each of the figures the numerals 1` 1, designate the upright studding on each side of, and adjacent, the window opening 2, and the numerals 3 designate the other upright studding of the frame, similar to the studdinff 1. To the outer side of the studding 1 and 3 the outer wall boards 4 are secured in the usual way and to the inner side of said studdingthe ceiling, or sheeting 5 is secured. The outer wall may be finished with stucco 6, or the like, as shown in Figure 8.
As stated the studding 1 forms the sides of the sash casing in which the upper and lower window sashes 7 and 8 are slidably mounted. Fastened to the facing sides of the studding 1, 1, are the centrally located vertical strips 9 which separate the sashes and the outside and inside strips 10 and 11 Serial No. 91,068.
are fastened to the outer and inner sides, respectively, of each studding 1, which form, with the corresponding strip 9, the Vertical grooves, or tracks 12 and 13 in which the respective sashes 7 and 8 run.
Near the upper endrof the opening 2 the studding 1 has a pair of slots in which the pulleys 14 and 15 are mounted to be rotated.
Attached to the sashes 7 and 8 are the usual sash cords 16 and 17 which work over the pulleys 14 and 15 and their other ends carry the sash weights 18 and 19 which are concealed between the outer and inner walls 4 and 5.
The sash casing has the usual top 20 and sill 21` which are anchored, at their respective ends to the studding. When the casing for the sash is formed in the manner herein described the studding adjacentthe window opening is utilized also as the sides of the sash casing` thus dispensing with the necessity of providing eXtra sides for said casing and conducing to cheapness of construction without in any manner detracting from the appearance or durability of the structure.
Y W'hat I claim isz* 1. A structure having spaced vertical framework wall studding and a window opening between said studding, the facing sides of said wall studding having vertical sash tracks'the length of said window opening, sashes mounted in said tracks and ver tically movable.
2. A structure having spaced vertical framework wall studding' and a window opening between said studding, the facing sides of said studding having vertical sash tracks the length of said window opening, sashes mounted in said tracks and vertically movable and counter balancing means attac-hed to said sashes and working over pulleys carried by said studding.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
WILBUR` c. STREETER.
