' T. HENDERSON COMPOUND FABRIC Filed May 31 1924 Patented Dec. 14, 1926. I




Applicationfiled Inlay 31, 1924, Serial 1T0. 717,052, and in Great Britain June 4, 1923.

the result that the said awnings or screens will reduce the light but are not proof against heat or actinic rays and therefore afford but little protection in tropical countries. I

In addition to the heat and actinic resisting properties my material is also rendered waterproof and is flexible so that it can be easily rolled or folded and thereby rendered portable so that its employment for many purposes is possible. Briefly the improved material consists of :3 a layer of thin thread fabric preferably previously waterproofed overlying at one or both sides a layer of lead or other metal foil which is supported by thin paper on one or both sides, said paper being preferably attacheclto the foil by waterproof adhesive. The fabric may be secured to the paper through the use of any suitable adhesive.

My invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which, Fi 1 showsv a piece of the compound materia a the several layers 1, 2, 3 4, and 5 .of which are laid together in the finished article on the left hand side and are shown separated on the right hand side.

Fig. 2 shows, on larger scale, an edge of 40 a like piece of material with the outer layers separated from the central layers on the left hand side. Like reference numerals are used in these two drawings.

Fig. 3 shows a piece of material similar layer of a material which is resistive to the an penetration of the heat rays of the sun, a thin paper layer secured to each side of the intermediate layer, and an outer layer of a material resistive to the-light rays of the sun secured to each thin layer.

2. A compound fabric for use'as a cover protection against both the light and heat rays of the sun, comprising an intermediate layer of thin metal foil, a thin paper layer secured to each side of the metal foil,

and a cloth fabric layer secured on each thin pa er layer.

n testimony whereof I have signed my name to this s ecification.
