COMBINATION SCREEN MOUNTING AND WEATHER STRIP FOR CASEMENT WINDOWS 'f/fgm gm fertig/af Patented July 12, 1932 UNITED STATES lnxrlezN'r OFFICE HAB-RY DIXSON, F yBELLA, IOWA, ASSIGNOR T0 ROLSCBEEN COMPANY, OF PELEA, IOWA GOIBINATION SCREEN MOUNTING AND WEATHER-STRIP CASEMENT WINDOWS i Appucation led November 25, 1929. Serial No. 409,590;
The object of my invention is to provide a combinatlon screen mounting and weather strip for easement windows of simple, durable and comparatively inexpensive construction.
More particularly,it ismy object to provide in combination with a weather stri for easement` windows a screen mounting, W ereby a screen is supported upon the easement frame and the means which serves to support the screen in position serves at the same time as a weather strip for the easement.
The subject matter of my resent application is related to my co-pen ing ap hcation entitled Flat screen installation or casements, filed November' 19, 1929, Serial No. 408,279.
A further object is to provide a weather strip formed of members adapted to support a screen in position on the inside of the casement window to serve as a weather strip feature between the meeting bite'of the casement frame and the window thereof.
A further object is to provide a weather strip adapted to be yieldingly mounted upon the easement frame and to rest against two -fiat portions thereof, so as to contact with 1n my claims, and illustrated 1n the accomsuitably mounted relative to the easement two fiat portions of the windowf-rgame, whereby a tight weather seal will provided between the easement frame and the window thereof.
With these and other objects in view, my`
invention consists in the construction, 'arrangement and combination of the various parts of my combination screen mounting and weather strip for easement windows, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out panying drawings, in which W Figure 1 is a front, plan view of a easement frame with my combination screen mounti I 1 g and weather stripapplied thereto.

Fi re 8 is a similar view wherein the weat er strip and screen mounting are formed of separate and different pieces of metal.
Figure 9 is a vertical, sectional view illustrating a rolling window screen in position upn my screen mounting and weather strip; an
Figure 10 is a sectional viewv taken on the line 10-10 of Figure d9.
In the accompanying drawings, I have used the reference character A to indicate generally a easement frame which is substantially rectangular in outline and formed of a pair of flat bars 10 and 12 connected by a web 14, so that the frame may be referred to as formed of a double L-shapedl member.
A window frame B is also formed of a double L-shaped member`- and includes an outer portion 16 and an inner portion 18 connecte together by the web 20.
' An ordinary glass pane 22 is mounted Within the frame B. The entire frame B is a pair of j amb members, a head member and a sill member.
My screen mounting and weather strip includes a pair of jamb elements C. Each 5 element C as illustrated in Figures 4 and 5 of the drawings is formed of a single piece of material bent to provide a body portion 24 and a pair of screenguides 26. The screen guides 26 are channel-shaped in cross section 10 as clearly illustrated in Figure 4.
The body portion 24 is bent so as to provide an outwardly opening channel 30 adapted to receive the portion 12 of a casement frame A. The channel portion 30 snugly receives the portion 12, and thus the entire member C is supported relative to the casemnt frame'.
The outer wall of the channel member 30 as at 32 serves as a weather strip and is arranged to be received between the meeting bite of the portions 18 and 12 when the window frame is in closed position.
, It is desirable that both ofv the meeting bites of the easement be provided with a weather strip, and I therefore have a projection 34 formed on each element C with an outwardly directed flange 36. The flan e 36 is received between the meeting bite o the portions 16 and 10 of the Casement window.
The ange 36 is arranged normally at an incline, so that when the Casement window is in closed position, a real tight weather seal joint will be provided.
The ange 36 when the window frame B is in closed position will become at and rest against the member 10 as clea-rly illustrated in Figure 2 of the drawings.
In order to retain the two members C in position upon the side jambs of the 'frame' A in addition to their frictional mounting, I
rovide a'sill member D and a head memr E. The members D and E are similar in shape and purpose, one fitting the head portion of the frame A and the other the sill portion thereof. The members D and E each have a channel portion 38 adapted to project over the portion 12 of the easement frame A and at the same time the projected ends 40 of the members D and E are received between the two jamb elements C. 'The cutaway portion 42- formed on the members D and E is so arranged as not to interfere with the channel or screen guides 26.
The channel portion 38 includes an outwardly directed body portion 44 and adownturned flange 46. The iange 46 is received between the outer meeting bite of the casement window and its frame.
connection, it will be understood that when the member is reversed, so as to provide the head member D, then the flange member 46 projects upwardly.`
Details of construction so far as the screen It will be noted that I have used the term downwardly extending flange and in this mounting, as illustrated in Figures 5 and 6 of the drawings, are clearly exemplified in my co-pending application hereinbefore referred to.
Within the screen guides 26, I mount a pair of flat screens 48.
In Figure 7, I have shown a slightly modifled form of channel members 30 and in such case, the channel is provided with a V-shaped portion 50 adapted to engage the member 18 of the window B. The V-shaped portion 50 will be -fiattened when thev window frame B is moved to completely closed position. The V-shaped portion -50 provides a yielding engagement of the member 18 with the weather strip at the inner meeting bite before the window frame has been moved to closed position.
In Figure 8, I have illustrated a slightly modified form wherein the outer weather strip portion is formed of a separate piece of metal 52. One end of the channel portion 30 is provided with a short flange or stub 54 to be inserted in the receiving channel 56 of the base or member 52.
The base 52 includes a flange 36 and in all details so far as function and purpose is concerned, it operates exactly as the jamb members or head and sill members illustrated in Figures 5 and 6 of the drawings.
Figure 8 has been shown to exemplify the use of two different weights of material, as well as two different kinds of materials.
Figures 9 and 10 illustrate my combination weather strip and screen mounting for use in connection with rolling window screens. In such case, a single channel 58 is provided in which is mounted a guide 60. The guide 60 is frictionally received within the channel 58 and is capable of slight movement relative thereto. f
A roll screen casing 62 is carried by the j amb elements F in any suitable manner and preferably as disclosed in my co-pending application entitled, Rollscreen window installation for easement windows,filed November 7, 1929, Serial No. 405,374. The jamb elements. F are installed in position exactly as the elements C and likewlse a head member and sill member are also provided for mounting on the easement frame.
Practical installation The screen frames or the roll screen are, of course, mounted on the members C or F.
When the easement window B is closed, there will be two portions of the weather strip received between the two portions of the meeting bite of the Casement window and its frame.
It will be noted that I have provided a weather strip for easement windows, which is adapted to be positioned upon a easement :trame without the use of any fasteningmeans other than the arrangement of the weather strip so that it receives a portion of the standard easement frame.
It will also be noted that the weather strip forms part of the screen mounting, and thus the two parts when connected together cooperate with each other for providing a complete screen mounting and weather strip for easement windows.
Some changes may be made in the arrangement and construction of the various parts of my combination screen mounting and weather strip for easement windows, without departing from the real spirit and purpose of my invention7 and it is my intention to cover by my claims, any modified forms of structure or use of mechanical equivalents, which may be reasonably included within their scope.
I claim as my invention:
