Some of the objects -of ward the frame. With these as well as other objects in' view the invention resides 1n the novel features of construction and comblna-- tions and arrangements of parts as more In the drawings v Figure 1 is an outside elevation of a win-l dow embodying-my invention;
lines 2-2, 3-3 and 4 4, respectively, of Figure 1.
cThe window shown in the present instance has the inwardly opening reversible ventilator 1 and the frame 2. The frame comprises' bottom bar 15 of theiscreen frame is spaced below the bottom bar of the ventilator when closed and the screen being on the outer side ofthe screen frame, sullicient clearance is providedffor'freely moving the ventilator toits desired positions. To Adetachably secure the screen frame in place and at the same time close the joint between 'the screen frame and the window frame so that flies, etc., cannot enter, Ihave provided at lthe upper ends'oil the outwardly opening recesses 11 the clips 16 which have bodies 17 extending within the downwardly opening pockets and secured to the transverse flanges 9 of the lintel weathering strips. Each of these clips also has the transverse outwardly extending ,projection Figures 2, 3 and 4 are lcross sections on the 18 at its lower end`which terminates in the transverse flange 19, the projection 18 extending along the edge of a side bar of the screen frame and the ,flange extending along the outer side of this Y'side bar. 20 isa suitable set screw threadedly engaging the flange strips have the inner portions .8 which form channels and the side bars of the ventilator per `ends of which are pivotally-connected to the jambs and jamb weathering strips near their upper ends. The weathermg strlps into the window opening and overlap the f ventilat'or 'when closed. These l we strips also have the intermediateportlons 10 connecting the channel forxr'iin'gp portions 7 and the transverse anges 9 and cooperating with the bars of the window rframe to which they are secured to form outwardly -openlng spaces 11. The lintel .weathering stri exv'tends over the spaces l:formedin the .rame jambs and its transverse llange 9 formsjat fthe upper ends ofthe recessesdownwardly opening pockets. '1
E 12 is the screen comprising the solid metal iframe 13' and the screen mesh 14 secured to s; e the outer side of then frame as by solder. The
have the transverse flanges -9 which extend ering .dow frame.
portions 10 ofthe and adapted to abut the adjacent sidebar of the screen frame for forcing the 'same against the transverse anges 9 of the win- Theseset screws are adjustable to also take care of varyingthicknesses of screen frame. 21 are supports at the lower end ofthe screen frame having the bodies22 extendingl within the 4lower ends of the recesses 11 and secured to the intermediate jamb weathering strips.
The lower ends of these bodies are located .outwardly of their upper ends and extend below the bottom bar of the I,ventilator as frame without allowin'gthe bottom of the screen frame to crinale into contact with the upper sur ace 25 o t e heads connecting' into thelower ends of the shoulders.
vwell as the sill bar of the frame and are prof4 Toseal the space between the bar' 15 of the screen frameand the sill bar 3 of .the window frame, I have provided 'the ilex-l ible closure member 26 whichr is suitably secured to the lower bar of the screen trame and resiliently engages the outer edge of the tom bar of the Ventilator clamps the closure member again'st the sill bar of the window frame and thereby holds the screen from unauthorized removal from the outside.
With this construction, it will be seen that the screen frame lnay be cheaply manufactured and that it may be easily and cheaply detachably secured to the window frame. 'It will alsobe seen that when attached to the window fra-me it is held toward the same to close the joints sufficiently to prevent flies or the like entering.
W'hat I claim as my invention is:
1. A' screen attachable to a window having a frame, and means for detachably securing said screen to the frame, including means adjustably engageable with one end of said screen lto laterally force the same toward the frame, and means engageable with' the other end of said screen for automatically forcing said screen laterally toward the frame.
2. A screen attaehable to a window hav p tachably securing said screen to the frame,
including retaining means engageable with the upper end of said screenand extending into the recesses, and supporting means en' gageable with the lower end of said screen and extending into 4the recesses, said supporting means automatically forcing sald screen laterally toward the frame.
3. "A screen attachable to a window having a frame, and means for detaehably securing said screen to the frame,including clips se- I v inwardly inclined shoulders engageable with said screen for automatically forcing the same laterally toward the frame.
4.- A screen attachable to a window frame having outwardly opening recesses at its sides and having its bottom bar and its screen mesh, respectively, spaced belowand laterally outward from the bottom bar of said ventilator, retaining 'members engageable in the upper portions of the recesses and se cured to the frame, and members adjustably engaging said retainingmembers and engageable with the upper portion of said screen for laterally forcing the same toward the frame, supporting members in they lower `portions of the recesses and provided with heads at their lower ends and below the bottom barof said ventilator, said heads having downwardly and, inwardly inclined shoulders engageable with the lower end of saidv screen for forcing the same laterally toward the frame.
5. A screen attachable to a window having a frame, means for detachably securing the upper portion of said screen to the frame, and a support for the lower end of said .screen having means for automatically forcing the saine laterally toward the frame.
In testimony whereof I alix my signature.
