Application filed November 22, 1927. Serial No. 235,005. v

This invention relates to building structures, and particularly to studding.

The general object of the invention is to provide a stud which is made of angle iron 5 adapted to be used in building construction for steel frame houses, partitions in oflice buildings, or wherever a 2 X 4: wooden stud is now used.

A further object is to provide a steel cleating stud of angle iron that is so constructed that it will simplify the clamping thereto of reinforcing-wire for concrete or clamping thereto the metal lath for-plastering. Another object is to provide a steel stu 1 that will simplify the wiring and piping of a building and which will provide a fire-proof system of studding for the building.

Other objects will appear in the course of the following description.

My invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is an inside elevation of a stud constructed in accordance with my invention partly broken away at its upper end;

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view through the stud; I

Figure 3 is a section on the line 33 of Fig. 2;

Figure 4; is an elevation showing the stud- 30 ding, as used for supporting reinforcing wires; 7

Figure 5 is a vertical sectional view through a wall showing the studding, reinforcing members and concrete;

tendingupward parallel to the face of the flange 11 but the tongues are adapted to be turned over into a hook shape or clenched upon rein forcing rods, pipes, wires or the like,

as shown in Figure 5. These angle ironsare of any desired Figure 6 is a front elevation of the studlength and preferably 1 The angle irons are held in laterally spaced position by meansof the tie plates 15, each tie plate "being 3% square'and provided with apertures 16 through which bolts, rivets or like connecting members may be passed, these.

members passing through theapertures 13 in the flange 12. These tie plates, when in place, act to hold the two angle irons or studding in proper spaced relation. At the top and hottom of the studding there are provided the angle iron cleats 17 These cleats are angular in cross section to provide a vertical flange 18 and a horizontal flange 19. The horizontal flanges are preferably longitudinally slotted,

as at 20,.while the vertical flanges 18 are apertured for the passage of bolts or rivets which pass through the adjacent holes 13 of the angle iron studding elements. The angle iron cleats 17 are disposed both at top and bottom of the stud and constitute the ends of the studding. The holes 13 are equally spaced so thatany desired assembly may be I 'made' Any desired number of the tie plates 15 may be used to connect the studding elements and the completed stud may be used in any desired assembly, either with rods 21 such as are used for reinforcing concrete c-onstructions, or the studs may be-used with metal lath 22, as'shown in Figure 6, for plastering walls or'ceiling's; This stud is held in place by screws or bolts or other fastening devices passing through the slots 20 andengaging the'beams or sills, and the construction of the stud is such as to permit piping or wireconduits to be readily passed through the studding between the angle irons 11. This studding can be used with ordinary concrete, stuc- 00, plaster or any other building material now in use andits construction makes it particularlyeasy for the application of plaster or concrete wall surface. The slots 520 permit any adjustment to, be made which may be i found necessary'in the centering of the studs 7 on the joists. The tie plates can be either bolted or riveted to the angle irons as desired. I I

I claim 5-- i A metallic stud of the character described comprising two parallel angle ironshaving flanges projecting toward each other and Eerforated, the other flange of each angle iron mg provided with outwardly projecting tongues, tie glates connecting the first named 5 flanges of t e angle irons, and an 1e irons disposed at the top and bottom (if he studding and having flangesconnected to the first named flanges of the angleirons and having horlzontal flanges formed With apertures for the passage of p1pes, wlrlngyetc, v 10 In testimony whereof I hereunto affix my signature.
