These This iigure shows the outside of the door. braces serve the same purpose that braces 16 55 and 17 do. By means of the hinges 6 and the braces 16, 1'7, 18, 19, 20 and 21 the door when in a vertical position is held substantially rigid. Any gust of air or any pressure on the outside of the sectional door is overcome by means of these braces so that though there is provided in the sectional door ythis pass or wicket door the strength and rigidity of the sectional door are not materially affected thereby.

In order that the pass. door may securely close the passageway through the sectional door there is provided, around the periphery of the door, in the wall thereof providedV in the sectional door, a groove 22, into which a tongue 23 on the pass door fits. This construction is shown in Figure 8.

Each door section is composed of a plurality of panels. Section 1 has wooden panels 24. Sections 2 and 3 have glass panels 25, while sections 4 and 5 have wooden panels 26. These panels are shown in Figure 7 to be of three ply, giving greater strength and rigidity to the part of the door near the ground or bottom of the doorway. There is provided,`in connection with the pass door, a lock 27, which engages a cooperating latch member found in one section of the sectional door.

This sectional door is adapted to be used in connection with garages and other similar buildings. 'Ihe operation and support of such a door are well known and form no part of the present invention. The present invention relates solely to the formation of a pass'door in connection with a sectional door of the overhead type, and means for strengthening the sectional door around the pass door so that the sectional door is not weakened by the formation therein of a pass door.

It also pertains to the connection` of parts of the pass door so they will articulate with the sections of the main or overhead door. Y

I desire to comprehend within myinvention such modifications as may be embraced within my claims and the scope of my invention.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new .and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. In combination, a hinge for hinging horizontally disposed sections and a hinge for hinging vertically disposed sections, and means attached to said respective hinges engaging one another to prevent inward movement of said sections under pressure on one side of the hinges. 2. In combination, a hinge for hinging horizontally disposed sections .and a hinge for hinging vertically disposed sections, and means attached to said respective hinges engaging one another to prevent inward movement of said sections under pressure on one side of the hinges, one of said hinges and said means being arranged on one side of the sections and the other of said hinges being arranged on the other side of the sections.

3. A new article of manufacture comprising a hinge formed of hinged plates, a hinge pin,"a shoulder on one of said hinge plates, and an abutment plate having a corresponding shoulder engageable therewith.

4. A new article of manufacture comprising a hinge formedfo hinged plates, a hinge pin, a shoulder on one of Said hinge plates, an abutment plate having a corresponding shoulder en.

gageable therewith, and a. second hinge having hinge plates and a hinge pin arranged transversely of the first-mentioned hinge pin, said second hinge having one of its hinge plates connected to said abutment plate. ,Y

5. In combinatioma transverse hinge on oppositely disposed Vertical hinged door sections, each section being attached to one 'part of said hinge, and an abutment plate on-one of said sections engaging anl abutment on a part of said hinge on the other section.
