PATENT -o i j 1,968,189 TILE PANEL'FABRIGAT'ING Mow Henry Bartels, Chicagm-Ill. Application November 28, 1932, Serial No. 44,592 13 Claims; (01. 25-41) This invention relates to improvements in tile panel fabricating molds by means of which a reinforced tile faced panel may be built or fabricated, to be shipped as a complete unit of any desired predetermined area, and then removably secured in position in a building, thereby rendering it possible to not only facilitate the installation of tiling but also rendering it possible to subsequently remove any one or more of the panels for repairs, or other purposes.

A further object is to provide an improved mold mounted in a manner to permit the sa me to be readily reversed or' turned, so that operations may be performed in the construction of the panel from both faces thereof, the mold being collapsible or of a knock down constructionto permit ready removal of the completed panel.

To the attainment of these ends and the accomplishment of other new'and useful objects as will appear, the invention consistsin the features of novelty in substantially the construction, combination and. arrangement of theseveral; parts hereinafter more fully described and claimed and shown in the accompanying drawings ing this invention and in which illustrat- Figure 1 is a perspective View of the bottom member of the mold.

Figure 12 isa detail perspective view, on an enlarged scale, of a portion of the mold with all of the parts assembled and showing a portion. of the fabricated structure therein. 7

Figure 13 is a View partly in horizontal section and partly in top plan, with parts omitted, showing a portion of the mold and'the upper surface of the bottom member.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, the mold consists essentially of a frame member of any desired dimensions, having sides 15 and end members 16, and these frame members are Z0 of any desired height preferably connected together so as to be collapsible and of a knock' down formation. To that end one end of each of the side members 15 may be pivotally connected as at 17 with one end of each of the end members 16, and the free ends of theside and end membersare preferably detachably connected together by means of pins 18 removably'passing through eyes 19 secured to the respectiveend members and the framethus formed is removably supported upon uprights 20'by means of lugs or trunnions 21 secured to the end members. 1 The frame thus mounted is adapted to be rotated upon the trunnions 21 so as to invert the frame member during the process of-the manufacture or fabrication of the panel. r

Supported in .the corners of the frame member are members 22 which are adapted to be moved through suitable slots so as to be projected into the frame to form supporting shelves arranged intermediate the upper and 'lower edges of the side and end members. If desired-two of these members 22- maybe secured to the pintles 18 so that. by rotation of the pintles the member secured thereto may be moved into and out of the .frame. .The. other members 22 maybe pro-: vided, with a finger engaging portion 23; disposed ,outside of the frame and by .means of which the members maybemoved intoand out of active position.

- When the frame member is in theiposition shown in Figure 2, it may be so supported and held inanydesired or suitable manner'jsuch as by means of'legs 24 pivotally connected as ati25 to the respective side members. These legs 24 105 are adapted to move about their pivots 2 5 into engagement with the floor or supporting surface so as to" permit further operation without the frame swinging about-its pivot. When, however, it is desired to "reverse the frame, the legs are H0 moved to the folded position as shown in Figure 2, after which the legs 24 are then swung downwardly into engagement with the floor or supporting surface, as shown in Figures 3, 4 and 5.

The numeral 26 designates generally a bottom member for the mold and is of a size and configuration to fit within the frame so that the corners of the bottom 26 will rest upon the supports 22 and these supports are preferably so located that the outer surface of the bottom 21 will be substantially flush with the upper edges of the frame, when the latter is in the position shown in Figure 2. Handle members 27 may be provided, if desired, on the bottom member 26 to facilitate the handling of the lattergand fasten ing members 28 pivotally connected as at 29 to the bottom member 26 are provided and are adapted to be swung about their pivots so as to enter slots 30 in the frame for locking the bottom member in position.

When the bottom member is secured within the framemember the frame member is reversed to the position shown in Figures 3 to 5, and as before stated, the legs 24 are moved into position to hold the frame member against further swinging movement.

The then upper surface of the bottom member 26 is provided with a series of cavities or subframes 31 arranged in any suitable manner with respect to each other, according to the manner in which it is desired to arrange the tile. These cavities 31are of any desired size and configuration and are each provided with a supporting ledge or shoulder 32 therein, and spaced from the upper deges of the walls of the cavities so as to form supporting ledges upon which the tile 33 inserted thereinto will rest. The walls of the cavities 31 above the ledges 32 are of a height substantially equal to the thickness of the tile.

If desired, the wallsof the cavities 31 adjacent either one or both of the end members 16 of the mold frame, may be curved as at 34 so as to co-operate with, the end members 16 of the frame member for the reception of curved tile 35 (see Figure 9).

. ;When the mold is in the position shown in Figure 3, the tile 33 is placed in the various cavities 31, with the rear face of the tile uppermost, and a layerof plastic material 36 is placed over the rear surface of the tile, to any desired thickness. A reinforcing member 3'7 is then placed upon the plastic material and may, if desired, be forced into the plastic material. This reinforcing member 3'7 is preferably of a configuration to substantially extend across the mold frame. Additional plastic material is then placed into the mold over the reinforcing member and the mold is filled with the plastic material. A top member ,38 is then placed upon the frame member and is secured in position in any suitable manner such 'as by means of fastening devices 39 pivotally mounted as at 40 upon the member 38. Any suitable number, preferably two, of the fastening devices 39 maybe providedat each end of the member 38 and are adapted to be projected into'the slots 4l'in'the end members 16 of the frame member. t

"The top"m"em ber 38 is provided with openings 42 therein having reduced extensions 43, through which openings 42, anchor members 44 are adapted 1 project so as to extend above the member 36. The openings 42 are of any suitable dimensions and may, if desired; be of a size to permit the heads 45 on the anchors-members '44 to be passed therethrough and embedded in the plastic material 36, the anchor members being moved to a position that they will project through the reduced portion or extension 43 of the openings. A cover member 46 having a recess 47 in one edge thereof may be provided for closing the openings 42 and when in position, the recess 47 will cooperate with the extension 43 so as to receive a portion of the shank of the anchor member.

If desired, the wall of the opening 42 may be beveled as at 49 (see particularly Figure 12) and the edge of the member 46 may also be beveled so as to prevent the closure member 46 from falling through the opening 42. When the member 46 is placed in position, it will rest upon the plastic material 36.

When the anchor members 44 are in position, as well as the closure member 46, the fastening devices 39 are swung about their pivots so as to be projected into the slots 41 and the fastening members 39 may be provided with a recess 50 to receive the shank of the anchor member 44 as shown more clearly in Figure 5.

After the top member 38 has been secured in position as shown in Figure 5, the legs 24 may be folded to the position shown in Figure 2 and then the entire mold reversed so as to bring the bottom member 26 uppermost, thereby causing the frame member to assume the position shown in Figure 2. The legs 24 may then be swung downwardly so as to support the frame in this position to permit the removal of the bottom member 26.

It will be manifest that after this bottom mem ber 26 is removed, the tile face of the panel will be uppermost and while the panel is still in the mold the operator can then adjust the tile or perform any other operation on the face of the panel desired, before removing the panel from the mold.

After the bottom member 26 has been removed, the mold may then be removed from the standards 20 and the frame detached, separated or collapsed so as to remove the same from around the edges of the panel. 7

Obviously, the fabricated structure may be allowed to remain in the mold for any desired length of time to permit the material to become set.

v If desired and in order to produce a projecting portion 51 (see Figure 9 of the drawings) on the panel, such as a beading, the supporting shoulders or ledges 32 of the cavities 31 may be arranged in a lower plane than the plane of the supporting shoulders 32 of the remaining cavities and, likewise, if it is desired to produce a ledge 52 (see also Figure 9) the supporting ledges 32 in the corresponding cavities 31 maybe properly arranged.

With this apparatus itwill be manifest that a panel of any desired configuration may be fabricated in the factory and shipped to the point of use where it may be installed upon suitable supporting structure and secured thereto by the anchor or fastening members 44. At any time any oneor more of the panels may be readily removed without interfering with the remaining panels and the entire structure may as readily be removed from a building.

While the preferred form of mold and the steps in carrying this method into operation have been herein shown and described, it is to be understood that Various changes may be made in the details of construction and combination and arrangement of the several parts of the mold, and various changes may be made in the steps of the process of forming the article, within the 'scope-of the claims, without invention.
