Patented May'20, 1930 ALBERT A. KAMIN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS SCREEN SLIDE Application filed September 7,1928. Serial No. 304,402. g
This invention relates to an improvement in screen slides, and relates particularly to a metallic screen slide adapted to be attached to the blind stop at each side of a window frame, and an object of the invention is the provision of a metal slide of this nature constructed so as to have no exposed sharp edges, and also provided with improved means for attachment in the form-of slight depressions and partial perforations to permit the convenient penetration of small screws or brads.
A further object is the provision of an air space between the engaging sides of the screen slide and the'screen adapted to beinserted therein.
Other objects will appear hereinafter.
The present application constitutes a substitute application for applicants previously filed application Serial No. 120,278, filed July 2 3, 1926, entitled Window slide.
The invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
The invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which:
Fig.1 is a front elevational view of the device of the invention, secured upon each side of a window frame of a type ordinarily used so in frame house construction, with a half screen held in place by the slides;
Fig. 2 is an enlarged section taken upon the line 22 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the device of the invention secured to the blind stop of window frame construction such as is ordinarily employed in brick buildings;
Fig. 4 is a sectional view of the construction shown in Fig. 3;
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the upper portion of the screen slide of the present invention.
The manner of attachment of the slide of the invention is the same whether used in connection with the frame type of window casing or the type used in brick building construction, as in either type the slide is preferably attached to the blind stop which extends vertically upon each side of the casing.
As illustrated in the drawings, a pulley stile 8 is disposed upon theside of the window frame and is provided with the usual parting stop 9. The'device of the invention, which is adapted to be attached to the blind stop 10 comprisesa rear fiat'portion 11 and side po'r 'tions 12 which are preferably angles to the rear portion 11.
C3 bent at right For the purpose of avoiding exposed sharp edges, each the parallel lateral pro]ections 12 is preferably bent upon itself to form a bead 13, and as thisbead is preferably inwardly as shown in Fig. 5, an air space is provided at thecorner edges of the screen 14: whichfits intothe slide, and this construction facilitates the evaporation of moisture which accumulates in damp or rainy weather, having the o5 effect ofprolonging the life of the wooden screen.
As illustrated in the drawings, the pre-' ferred embodiment contemplates use in connection with half screens-o ployed, and for thispurpose rdinarily em it 15 but necessary to extend the slides approximately half the distance between the window silland the head of the window, and tate insertion and removal 0 the outer flange of each slide also to facilif the screens, is preferably cut away. adjacent the top as shown at 15 for a short distance and at the base of the cut away portion the outer flan erably inclined downwardlyl' The slides of the invention ge is also prefg so may be composed of any suitable-metal or metal alloy,
