FURNITURE PAD Filed July 12. 19228 b e [Z a b T? 5 v d a /3 7 d C b e C INVENTOR WITNES E Maurice Lanybdum BY Ma 79! ATTORNEYS Patented Sept. 16, 1930 UNITED TA FURNIT RE 7 Application filed July 12,

it 3 meeting edges of an adjacent pair of sections there is a tendency for the sections tobecome inadvertently separated, which frequently results in the upsetting or spilling of liquids.

-Due to the fact also that a-crevice is formed 5 between the abutting edgesunless means is provided to prevent the same, the spillage of liquids results in marring ofthetable top due to the fact that the liquid gains access thereto through the crevice.

In order to overcomethese disadvantages and objections, the present invention comprehends for 1ts ma n ob ect co-acting means at the meeting edges of an adjacent pair of sections for connecting the same againstsep- 1 aration by relative movementof thes'e'ctions away from each other in the same plane,

which means also functions .to render the joint between the sections liquid-tight throughout-the width. of the padi, More specifically, the invention comprehends in a sectional table pad; composed of separate sections, oppositely rabbeted meeting edges presentingoverlapping portions extending throughout the width of the pad sections and provided r'especti'velywith vertically-projecting ribs 'at'the ,free edges of said portions which are; adapted to interengage behind each other to accom'plishthe purposes which have been heretofore set forth. f l

Other objects of theinvention reside in the comparative simplicity of construction and mode of use of the invention, :the economy with which the same may be produced, and the general advantages derivedtherefrom.

WViththe above recited and other objects in view,reference-i's hadto the following descrlption of the, accompanying drawlngs 1n which there is exhibited onee'x'ampleof the embodiment of the invention while the ap- TEs MAURICE VLANGBA'UQ'MMOF B ROQKLYN, NEW YORK NT 1F F 5 was. Serial at. 292,065.

pended claims define the actual scope of the I invention. In the drawings Fig. l is a fragmentary plan View of a pair of table pad sections constructedin accordan'cewith the invention andillustrating the same in interlocked relationt Y i Fig. 2'is a sectional view therethrough take approximately on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1- and illustrating the pad sections in separated juX- ta-position.

Fig. 3 is a similar view illustrating the pad sections in interlocked relation.

' 'Referringt'o the drawings' by characters of reference, and'lldesignate respectively a pair oftable pad sections, the meeting edges of which are respectively provided with outwardly projecting. overlapping. tongues 12 and 13, the tongue 12'projecting .from'the lower portion of the sectionlO and the tongue "13"projecting from theupper portion of the section 11. The tongues-are'provided respectively with upstanding and dependingribs 141 and 15 adjacent their free edges,'which I ribs, together with the'tongues andthe main 'bodyof thepad sectionsydefine' grooves or channels 216" and 17 respectively, the channel '16 being designed toreceive'the rib' '15 and the channel the rib 14,.whereby to interloolrthe sections against relative separation by separating movement-of the sections away from each other in the same plane.

its is common to the construction of pads of this character,-=the independent sections I are each composedof an'upper ply-a, a lower 1 "ply b,.andran intermediate ply .0, hence in practice the tongue 12;will constitute an outwardly"extending portion of the lower ply 6 beyond theremaining plies a and 0 while the pad section 11 .will have; its upperply a extending outwardly beyond the lower and intermediate plies b. and '0. .As is u'sual,'the pad willbe covered. on itsupper surface with .a waterproof covering material, d while the lower surface will be covered with 'a soft 'yieldable-material, suchias felt, e. As illustrated, thefelt ,-covering material e will lbe extended around over the tongue and rib and tucked in between the lower and intermediate plies b and. 0, while the upper COV GI'lIlgIIifi- I terial twill be'similarly. trained around the V edges of the upper and intermediate plies a and and tucked between the lower and intermediate plies b and 0. The section 10 will be similarly covered with the materials (Z and thus inter-engaged or interlocked maiden tal separation of thepad sections ispracti cally impossible, while the groove 16 defined 1 in the pad section will serve as a trough or gutter to receive spilled liquidsand pre-' ,vent their reaching the table top.

I claim: 7 i 1. In aisectional table pad, inter-engaging means at the meeting edges of an adjacent pair of sections providinga trough-like'structure for rendering the pad liquid-tight at the juncture of the sections and for retaining the same in associated relation against accidental separation.

2. In a sectional table pad, inter-engaging means constituting an integral part of and formed at the meeting; edges of an adjacent pair of sections for rendering the pad liquidtight at the juncture of the sections and for retaining the same in associated relation against accidental separation, said'means comprising rabbeted overlapping portions provided with verticalribs and affording a flush joint and providing a trough-like-structure for collecting spilled liquids. I

3. In a table pad including separate sections and co-aoting means constituting aninagainst separation by relative separating movement of the sections iaw'ay from each other in the same. plane and providing a trough-like structure for collecting spilled liquids.

In a table'pad including separate sections and co-acting'means formed at the meeting edges ofsaid sections for connectingthe same against separation by relative movement of the sections away from eachother in the same plane, said means comprising oppositely rabbeted meeting edges presenting overlapping *portionsextending "throughout the width of the pad sections' and vertically engageable. -'=ribs adjacent the "free edges of saidportions, the lower of said ribs providinga'trough-like "structure "for collecting spilled liquids.

V 5 5. In-a sectional'table pad comprisingseparate sectionshhaving' oppositely rabbeted -me'eting edges presenting overlapping portions extending through the width of the pad 'sections andprovided respectively with'vertic'a'lly projecting' ribs at the freee'dges of 7 said i portions adaptd tointerengage behind strips.

each other for connecting the same against relative separating movement and providing 1y projectingribsat the free edges of said portions adapted to loosely interengage behind each other for retaining the sections against accidental separation, the pad section having thelower rabbeted portion defining with its rib and the main body thereof, a receiving trough for preventing spilled liquids from reaching the'table top upon which the 4 pad is imposed.

7 A protective pad tor tables including separable sections; overlapping tongues of reduced thickness projecting respectively from the upper, and lower portions of the meeting edges of adjacent sections throughout the width of said sections, dependingand upstanding ribs provided respectively on said tongues adjacent the free edges adaptedto inter-engage behind eachother for retaining the sections against relative separation and presenting a liquid-receiving trough.

8. In. a table pad including separate sections composed of upper, lower and intermediate plies, intereng'ageahle means at the meeting edges for retaining the sections against relative separating movement thereof away from each other inthe same plane, said means consistingof a projecting portion of the lower ply of one section, aprojecting por-' 'tion of the upper ply of the other section and tegral part of and formed at the meeting edges of said'sectionsfor connectingthe same a rectilinear rib arranged on the inner surface spaced.- =froni the edges [of the intermediate plies, a distance'equal to the width of the ply I 9. A' pad comprising separate sections, each of which is formed of a plurality of plies," the'bottom'plyin one section projecting beyond the edge'of its adjacentply andprovided along thejprojecting edgethereof with an upstandingrectilinear rib defining a'channel'with'the adj acentply,the section adjacent to said first named lsection'havingitstop-ply projectingbeyon'd the edge of its lower adj acent ply and being provided along the pro- 'jecting edge "with a downwardly extending rectilinear rib defining a channel with said lowerply,'the said projections andrectilinear ribs co-acting when in operative relationship to hold the sections together and. to provide means 7 for jcollecting'spilled liquid to thereby provide a liquid tight joint. 7 r a Signed at'Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State ofNew'York.
