Patented Jul 11, 1934 UNITED STATES HOSPITAL DRESSING PACKAGE Earle E. Dickson, New Brunswick, N. 1., assignor to Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, N. J., a corporation oi New Jersey Application March 7, 1934, Serial No. 714,507
3 Claims. (Cl. 206-52) The invention relates to the packaging of hospital dressings, such as surgical gauze, absorbent cotton and equivalent goods, in rolled strip form and in such way that they can be dispensed in linear measure as required for immediate use without substantial impairment of the aseptic conditions under which they were originally packed and sealed.
Various and sundry cartons heretofore have been proposed for dispensing surgical dressing material in rolled form. Some of them have merit but all sufier the disadvantage that they appreciably add to the cost of the goods because they are more or less involved in construction, some requiring a special spindle for the roll, some requiring multiple containers, some requiring retracting devices, and all requiring a special container and special machinery for making it.
The object of my invention is to package surgical dressing rolls so that they can be dispensed in strip form in any desired length under aseptic environment conditions and to accomplish this in such way that cartons of ordinary manufacture may be employed so that the cost of the goods is reduced rather than enlarged.
The nature, characteristic features and scope of the invention more readily will be understood from the following detailed description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, forming a part hereof, wherein Figure 1 is a perspective view of the new package. I
Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the same, more particularly showing the false wall or framing member for covering the seam oi the butt jointed parts.
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the mouth or passway with the goods in dispensing relation.
In the drawing, 5 is an ordinary or conventional fiber carton of capacity suflicient to accommodate a roll 6 or hospital dressing material or other strip material. The roll is packed so that its free end 7 is always under the strain of the weight and pressure of the roll. The lid or cover 8 is of the same cross-sectional dimension as the box or carton. The merit and purpose of this is to insure a flush or -butt joint, as at 9, between the bottom edge of the depending walls of the cover and the top edge of the carton, with the exception that one end wall 10 of the lid is shorter than its companion walls so that it clears the opposing top edge of the carton and thus provides a dispensing slot or passway 11 through which the free end '7 of the goods normally protrudes. The dispensing opening and that portion of the goods threaded through it are shrouded by a flap cover consisting oi! a sectional wall portion 12 hinged to the carton as by adhesive strip 13.
The flush or but joint between the lid and carton is maintained by a guide frame in the form of a false wall construction consisting of two side members 14 and one end connecting member 15 telescoping the interior walls of the carton and extending above the same so as to cover the seam of the butt joint. After inserting the roll and threading the goods through the dispensing opening, as hereinbefore related, the lid or cover is permanently secured in butt joint relation with the carton by a seam-covering sealing or adhesive strip 16. Said strip also may be availed of to hold the flap in position to shroud the free end of the goods and the opening through which it is dispe'nsed, or the flap may be so held by a label 1'7, or the latter may serve to reinforce the sealing strip.
When dispensing is in order itis only necessary to slit that area of the sealing strip or label that immediately confines the flap whereupon the latter may be pulled down to admit of grasping oi the goods.
Having described the invention, 1 c1aim:--
1. A package comprising a carton having side walls and end walls, the side walls and one end wall having a flush edge and the other endwall having a hinged flap, a cover having a corresponding threewall flush construction for butt joint purposes and otherwise having clearance to cooperate with the flap to establish a valved dispensing opening, 9. rolled strip having its free end threaded through said opening and underlying and shrouded by the flap, and sealing means serving to secure the parts in the relationship stated and admitting of release of the flap without releasing the cover.
2. A package comprising a carton and its complemental cover enclosing a roll of strip goods and arranged relatively in butt joint relation with provision for selective dispensing of the goods, said provision including a passway interrupting the butt joint and formed in part by the carton and in part by the cover, a flap overlying the passway and the protruding strip, and sealing means for the seam of the joint and the flap and rupturable to release the latter without disturbing the cover.
3. A package comprising a carton and its complementalcover, enclosing a roll of strip goods and arranged relatively in butt joint relation with provision -Ior selective dispensing of the goods, said provision including a passway which interrupts the butt joint and is formed in part by the carton and in part by the cover, a guide in telescopic relation with the carton and cover and covering the inside seam oi the joint, 9. flap overlying the passway and the protruding strip, and sealing means for the seam of the joint and the flap and rupturable to release the latter without breaking the butt joint.
