Application March 5, 1935, Serial No. 9,498
This invention relates to a device for installing a ventilating screen of the roll type inconjunction with window frames and analogous structures providing light and ventilation.
The principal object of the invention is the provision of a novel device with which a screen of the indicated character may be readily installed and removed; which retains the screen material taut and smooth spanning the window opening;
which makes it possible to wind the screen material so as to be clear of a desired portion of the window opening whenever it is necessary or desirable.
The invention co nsists in the novel arrangement and combination of the various parts,'as
well as the details The nature of the ing features and a of construction. invention and its distinguishdvantages will appear when the following specification is read in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:

n taken on the line 99 of Referring now more particularly to the several views of the drawings, it will be apparent that the device of the present invention includes a supporting and guiding structure adapted to be arranged in a window frame, and which supports and encloses a spring roller for the screen material, and which guides the screen material as it is wound on and unwound from the roller. The said structure includes a base or sill bar I0, connecting guide tubes II, and a housing or casing terial is arranged.
hollow construction and I2 within which the roller for the screen ma- Each of the tubes II is of has a slot I3 extendin longitudinally thereof and which terminates short of the lower end, an
d which is widened and opens through the upper end as at I4 for a purpose to appear. The tubes I I are disposed vertically in spaced parallel relation between the bar It] and the housing I2. tubes II is connected The lower end of each of the with the bar III by an adjusting screw I5 which is swivelly connected with the bar ID as at I6. The screw I5 has a plurality of radially disposedholes II therein to receive a suitable instrument A bracket bearing I8, 4, is mounted on the the screw I5 to adjust for the purpose of turning the tube II up and down. shown most clearly in Fig. upper end of each of the tubes II. To accomplish this, the bearing I8 has a depending. portion I9 which fits into the tube, the latter having a notch to receive a laterally extending pin 2I. on
the portion I9 to prevent the bearing I8 from turning with respect to the tube. The portion I 9 has a groove 22 therein complemental to the, slot I3 in the tube. It will be obvious that each of the bearings 18 is detachably connected with the upper end of the related tube II. by the bearings I8.
The housing I2 is removably supported The housing I2 is constructed preferably of heavy sheet metal and comprises two sections, a section 23 and a section 24. Each end of the housing section 23 has a depression or recess 25. and a slot 26. Each end of the housing section 24 has an mtegral portion 21 resiliency springs.
whose upper end has a flange 28. Due to the of the metal the portions 21 serve as The portions 21 are receivable and fit within the depressions 25 respectively, and the flanges 28 are engageable and fit in the slots 26 respectively in the housing section 23. Thus the housing section 24 may be with or secured to the housing section 23. The housing section 24 is narrower than the section 23 to close a portion of the bottom of the section 23 and also to leave an opening extending longitudinally of the housing at the back thereof through which the screen material is wound and unwound. The housing section 24 has a longitudinal reinforcing flange 29 which abuts the frontwall of the hou each of the bearings sing section 23. If desired 28 may be provided with a depending bracket 30 for the purpose of supporting the roller of In order to accommodate the the bearings I8, the
opening 3| therein. The housing I2 is mounted on or supported by the bearings I8 which are disan ordinary window shade. bracket on each of housing section 24 hasan posed within the same.
The bearings I8 constitute means for supporting a spring and ratchet roller construction including trunnions which are re- 32 of any suitable detachably associated ceived in holes 33 in the bearings l8 respectively. A piece oi. screen material 34 of suitable size to span the distance between the tubes II and to reach from the roller 32 to the bar I 0 is provided. The upper end of the material 34 issecured to the roller 32 in any practical manner, and the opposite side edges of the material 34 extend or pro ject into the slots l3 of the rods II respectively, as the material 34 is wound on and unwound from the roller 32, the walls of said slots l3 constituting guiding means for the material. The lower end of the material 34 is bent in connection with a longitudinally bent strip 35 having a forwar'dly projecting flange 36 throughout the length thereof. Another strip 31 approximately equal in length to the strip 35 is laid against the bent end of the material 34. Suitable fastening elements 38 are employed to fasten the strips 35 and 31 together in binding engagement with the material 34. Each of the strips 35 and 31 at the opposite ends thereof is notched as at 39 to clear the unslotted lower end portion of the tube ll, so that the flange 36 may be brought down into contact with the bar l0. Suitable latches 40 are secured to the strip 31. Each of the latches has spring pressed latch members 4| which are releasably engageable with a headed stud 42 secured to the bar H1. The flange 36 has openings 43 therein to accommodate the studs 42. A suitable handle 44 is secured to the strip 31 intermediate the ends thereof for the purpose of winding and unwinding the material 34. The latches 40 will automatically engage the studs 42 when the material 34 is unwound sufficiently so that the material 34 will entirely close the opening of the window frame 45. The latches 40 must be manually released to wind the material 34 on the roller 32.
the material 34 to wind on the roller, subject to the action of the ratchet of the roller which will retain the material 34 extended in such manner as to be clear of any desired portion of the window opening whenever it is necessary or desirable.
The various elements will be so proportioned as to apply the screen to a window frame of known It will be understood that thereaction of the spring of the roller 32 will cause caused to enter the slots l3 if for any reason the opposite side edges should leave the slots.
