DELANEY, or JERSEYCITSL'NEW JERSEY wINnow SCREEN?!- This'inventi'on' appertains to new and use-' ful improvements in] window screens and more particularly-to a metallic slidable window screen. I I 5:?- The. principal object of this invention is to provide a metallic window screen wherein the frame. is composed of sections, welded, solderedor brazed together at their ends to l 6 provide a frame which can'be cheaply manufactured and which in use will be exceedingly durable.

Another important object of the invention is to provide, a window screen wherein the screen sheetis securely fastened in place. Still anotherimportant object of the invention is to provide a, window screen of 1 light construction and capable of being assembled in a quick and convenient manner. F During the course of the following specidication and'claim5 other important objects and advantages will become apparentto the reader.

inFig. -15 that'the frame is constructed of four sections, each denoted by numeral 5. As is clearly shown in Fig. 3, the. section is" providedwitha plane 6 and at one longitudinally edge portion is bent laterally and inwardly to provide the guide channel 7. The sheet'of material of whichthe section 5 is constructedis further disclosed to provide the front side 8 which-hasits'inner part disposed obliquely in an inward direction as at 9. The inner-"longitudinal edge portion of the plane side 6 is disposed inwardly as at 10 and then extended as at'l'l. The edge portion of the extended par't 11 is bent outwardly as at 12,

thus providing a trough for the reception of the edge portion of the window screen sheet 13. i

1 As is clearly shown in Fig. 4, the obliquely disposed portion 9 is extended to a position against'the extension 11 as at 13, and is then disposed along the outer side of the-laterally disposed portion 12 asatI l and over the edge portionthereofto project into the aforementioned trough as at15. "Thus the longitudinale'dge portions of the sheet of metal of each section 5 'arebrought together'in an interlocking union to provide a trough'fo'r the 'r'eception of -the''- edge portion of the screen'sheet13, f I Injthe form of-the invention shown in Figs. 1"to=4 inclusive, the portions13and 11' are provided with'regi'stering openings 16 through which bolts-17 are disposed. "These bolts extend through the retaining strip 18 and are equipped with nuts 19, so thatwhen. theedge portions of th'e'screen 13 are disposed into the troughs aforementioned, the:

inward pressure of the retaining strips 18 against the" same will serve to draw the screenjt'aut and the strips are retained in this position by the nuts 19.

Th foregoing describes a metallic screenwherei'n 'the screen sheet is readily 1 replaceableQ In 'Fig. 9,it can be seen that the strip 18 can' be secured in place for retaining the screen sheet 13' by spot-welding, soldering or brazinglat the points 20, or at other suitable points; w 1

'At this point -in'the specification, it is desirable to call the readers attention to the.
