STORM WINDOW Filed Feb. l, 1929 9 lNvENToR WILLIAM C. L EBER ATTO EY Patented Sept. 16, 1930 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE s'romu WINDOW Application med February 1, 1929. Serial No. 386,677.
One object of my said invention is the provision of a storm window includinff a main frame fixed glasses therein, a glass adapted to be slidably moved for the admission or exclusion of air, and a frame fixed in the main frame and complementary to and adapted for the strong weather-tight holding and free movement ofthe slidable glass.
Another object is the provision of a storm window the main frame of which is adapted to be conveniently opened and closed, and is equip ed with simple and inexpensive means for e ciently packing the main frame when closed with a view to excludingthe weather.
To the attainment of the foregoing the invention consists in the improvement as hereinafter described and definitely claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification:
Figure 1 is an elevation, partly in section, of the inner side of the storm window constituting thepreferred embodiment of my invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical section showing my. novel window as properly positioned and fastened in a conventional window frame, the section through the storm window being in the plane indicated by the line 2-2 of Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a section through the storm window per se on the line 3--3 of Figure 1.
Figure 4 is a fragmentary section showing a portion of the slidable glass, its marginal frame, and the fixed frame in which said marginal `frame is disposed and slidable.
Similar numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in all of the views of the drawings.
The conventional window frame 1 is shown as containing sliding sashes 2 and 3, and a bead 4 at the outer side of the outer sash 3.
Eyes 5 are connected to the sill 6 of the frame 1, and hooks 7 are provided at the outer side of the crown portion of the same.
My novel storm window per se includes among other elements a main frame 8, preferably of wood, and equipped with hooks 9 to engage the said eyes 5, and with eyes 10 to engage the said hooks 7, Figure 2. In the inner side of the frame 8 near the edge thereof is a oove 11 which in cross-section describes s ightly more than half ofa circle, and
in said groove is held a packing or weather strip of tubular rubber or of felt or other suitable material adaptpd when the frame 8 5;, is fastened in closed position, Fi ure 2, to engage the face of the bead 4 an thereby exclude the weather.
In addition to the elements named, the storm window constituting the preferred embodiw ment of my invention includes fixed glasses 12,13 and 14, spaced bar portions 14 between the glass 14 and an opening 15u through the sash, an open, rectangular metallic frame 15, of channel cross-section, fixed in the main 55 frame 8 and extending through the space be tween said bar portions 14x and arranged in ,a vertical plane alongside the vertical plane of the glass 14, Figure 3 a d extending practicall the full width of t e main frame 8, a sli able glass 16, and a marginal metallic frame 17, of channel cross-section, straddling the edge of the glass 16 and snugly fitting and slidable in the frame 15 from and to the fullyyclosed position shown in Figures 1 and 3. On 75 the sai frame 17 is a finger iece 18, Figure 1, to facilitate the sliding ofp the glass 16 to open and closed positions.
Manifestly when the glass 16 is positioned as shownfin Figures 1 and 3, the storm winso dow will eiciently bar the passage of air, one bar of the frame 17 resting in the space between the bar portions 14", Figure 3. When, however, said glass 16 is slidably moved to a position alongside the fixed glass 14, the open- 86 ing 15 for Ventilating purpose will be left unobstructed in the storm window; and it will also be noticed lthat the glass 16 ma be opened to the full or less extent accor ing to the size of opening desired.
Having described my invention, what I claim an desire to secure by Letters Patent 1s:
1. A storm window comprisin a main frame a fixed glass therein, space bar por- 06 tions fixed in the main frame at the inner edge of said glass, an open, rectangular metallic frame of channel cross-section fixed in the main frame and extending alongside of and beyond the fixed glass and through the space 10e between said bar portions, a `glasa slidable in the fixed metallic frame through said s ace to 'and -from a position alongside the ed glass, and a marginal metallic frame of chans nel cross-section on the edge of the slidable lass and snugly fitting and movable in the ed metallic frame, 'one bar of said frame resting in the space between the bar portions when the slidable glass is in working position.- 2. In combination a window frame, sash` therein, a bead in said frame outwardly beyond the sash, hooks on the outer .side of the u per portion of the window frame, a swing# a le storm window having transparent means 15 and also having eyes engaged with said hooks,
means for detachably securing said storm window in closed position, and acking held in a groove in the inner side o the storm window 4and extendin entirely around said trans- 20 parent means an lrojecting from said side and adapted when t e storm window is closed to bear against said bead.
In testimony whereof I aix my signature.
