\ P a screen door during warm weather, said door being readily converted to a solid panel door or a glass panel door by the substitution of sections provided for that purpose.
A further object is to provide a door which can be mounted to swing in the usual manner or, if desired, can be employed as a unit of a revolving door.
lVith the foregoing and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the accompanying drawings the preferred form of the invention has been shown.
In said drawings,
Figure 1 is a front elevation of the door having assembled therewith panels whereby drafts and moisture can be excluded.
Figure 2 is a section on line 2-2, Fig
is a section on line 55, Fig- .19 of which fits snugly in the recess. Bolts the top, bottom, and sides of the door. The
strips are] formed with inwardly extending flanges 3 and seated between these flanges are the edge portionsof a metal grille or lattice 4". held to the strips 1 and 2 by welding. This grille or lattice extends throughout the width and height of the door and is of sulfa cient strength to frustrate attempts. to break through the door.
At intermediate points the sides of strip '5??? 1 are connected by superposed oppositelyarranged angle strips 5 welded or otherwise suitably connected to the strip 1 and spaced apart to receive between them a filling strip 6 of wood or other suitable material. Simi- (i5 larly oppositely disposed angle strips 7 are welded or otherwise connected tointermediate portions of the sides of strip 2 and are likewisespaced apart to receive between them a filling stri 8 of wood or the like. These strips 5 and cooperate with the strips 1 and 2 to form inner and outer, upper and lower panel receiving recesses 9', 10, 11, and 12. Each of the outer recesses 11 and 12 is adapt I, ed to receive a screen 13 the frame 14: of which iits snugly in the recess.
A screen 15 has its frame 16 seated snugly in the lowerrecess 12. The inner recesses 9 and 10 can be used for holding panels adapted to be employed during cold weather. For example the lower recess 10 can be provided with a removable solid panel 17 fitting snugly therein while the other recess 9 can be provided with a removable window 18 the frame 20 are extended through the corner portions of the frames 14, 16, 17, and 19, and also through the flanges of the strips making up the frame of thedoor. .Each bolt has both of its ends screw threaded as shown particularly at 21 in Figure 3 and these ends are adapted to be engaged by cap nuts 22 which serve to bind against the outer surfaces of the adjacent frames, thereby to hold all of the frames firmly but detachably within the respective recesses. Obviously any one of the frames can be removed readily whenever desired but at all times the grille or lattice 4 a will remain in place at the cen er of the door Where it Will serve as aneflicient protecting means. r The door herein described can be mounted on hinges in the usual way or, if desired, can be one of the units of a revolving door. In the latter event the door may be provided, on its outer free edge or edges with a flexible strip 23 adapted to make a Wiping contact with the adjacent surfaces of the door and closure, thereby to form a weather tight connection between the door and adjacent parts. The filling strips 6 and 8 are employed for receiving door handles and other attachments to be connected to the door.
What is claimed is: V 1. A door including a frame formed of spaced angle strips constituting thetop, bottom and sides of the door, as grille'having its edge portions extending between'and connected to said strips, angle strips connecting the sides of the frame to provide upper and lower, inner and outer recesses, and door panels removably mounted in the recesses. I 2. A door including angle strips oppositely disposed and constituting the top, bottom and sides of the door, said strips being spaced apart, a metal grille having its edge portions secured between the strips and extending throughout the lengthand width of the door, said strips defining inner and outer recesses, and a panel removably mounted in each recess.
3. A door including angle strips oppositely disposed and constituting the top, bottom, and sides of the door,said strips being spaced apart, a metal grille having its edge portions secured between the strips and extending throughout the length and width of the door, said strips defining inner and outer recesses,
apanel removably mounted in each recess,
and means extending through the panels and strips for binding them together'detachably.
4-. A door including opposed metal angle strips spaced apart and forming the top, hot 7 tom and sides of the door, a grille having its edge portions seated between and secured to the angle strips, angle cross strips connecting the sides of the door and disposed in pairs, the cross strips of each pair being spaced one above the other, filling strips interposed between said spaced strips, there being recesses formed between the said cross strips and the top, sides and bottom of the door, panels removably mounted within said recesses, and means extending through the 7 panels and strips for detachably fastening the panels in the recesses.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signature.-
HENRY S. KERBY.
