INVENTOR F ZG.5.

.1 fication. It

Patented June 16, 1936 WALL STRUCTURE Edward A. Klages, Grafton, Pa.

Application January 11, 1934, Serial No. 706,247 Renewed January 4, 1936 Claims.

My invention relates to the application of brick, tile, or other veneer,--especially of the thinner forms,-on the walls of frame houses and other buildings, and the objects of the invention are: to provide suitable metal strips for supporting and holding the veneer in place and of such design that they can be readily and quickly positioned and attached so that the courses of bricks or tiles when laid will be uniformly level and a like distance apart; to facilitate the proper end-spacing of the bricks or tiles when necessary to crowd or spread them as the length of walls may require; to provide a ready and secure means for holding the bricks or tiles in place preliminary to pointing with mortar, and to provide ties to hold and reinforce the mortar.

This application is a continuation in part of my earlier filed application, Serial No. 658,558, filed February 25, 1933.

With the above objects in view, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination of parts hereinafter described in a full, clear, and exact manner, and referred to in the accompanying drawings forming part of this speciis also understood that minor changes within the scope of the appended claims may be made without departing from the invention itself.

Figure l is a front view of a portion of a frame wall showing the application of my invention as it would appear at the base or above each wall opening.

Figure 2 is a cross-section of the wall along the line 11-11 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a cross-section of the wall along the line III-III of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a perspective view of a portion of one of the channels.

Figure 5 is a perspective view of a portion of a channel showing a modification of the web and flange projections.

Figure 6 is a perspective view of a portion of a channel showing a further modification constituting the present preferred form of the channel.

means of nails or other suitable fasteners to the base of each wall as well as immediately above each Wall opening. One leg of the angles is directed upwardly and rests against the face of the walls, while the other leg projects laterally from the walls and forms a ledge to support the initial row of bricks or tiles.

Secured to the face of the walls at regularly spaced intervals, by means of nails or other suitable fasteners, and extending upwardly from the top of the angle 2 is a series of channel members 5 reaching to the top of the wall surface to be covered. The channels are preferably formed of relatively thin sheet metal because the flanges impart rigidity thereto. At the sides of the channels 5, and at uniform vertical intervals, are projections or lugs 6 for supporting the courses of bricks or tiles above the initial course, the vertical distance between the lugs being sufficient for the insertion of bricks reasonably wider than the standard size. The lugs 6 are provided with slots 1 into which may be set horizontally extending wire rods 8 to form ties for holding and reinforcing the mortar 9 used between the several courses of bricks or tiles. The channels are also provided with similarly spaced web projections or tongues comprising a bridge portion l0 and an integral lower lug I l, as shown best in Figures 3 and 4. The lugs II project a greater amount below the bottoms of the lugs 6 than the variation in the width of the bricks or tiles to be used and are capable of a little greater vertical displacement while still retaining the flexibility and resilience necessary to bear against the upper surfaces of the bricks or tiles and hold them in place as set on the supporting members. It is therefore obvious that, in applying the veneer it it necessary that the lugs II should be sprung upward by one edge of the bricks or tiles before the opposite or lower edges will clear the ledge of the angle 2 or the lugs 6. as the case may be, and allow the bricks or tiles to be shoved back in place. As shown in the drawing, the top edges of the lugs 6 may be higher at the outer ends in order to provide a better grip on the bricks or tiles and prevent any forward tilting of the bricks when the bottom surfaces are less than degrees with the backs.

In Figure 5, I have shown a slightly modified construction. channel. The sides or flanges are provided with outwardly projecting lugs 6' corresponding to the lugs 6 of the form previously described. I have shown these lugs as being provided with holes 1 in place of slots 1. It is obvious that In this figure, 5' designates the either holes or slots may be used for retaining the tie-wires in place. In this figure, there is also shown a slightly modified form of the tongue, this tongue H being struck directly from the center of the channel rather than being formed with the bridge portion to as previously described.

In Figures 6 and '7, I have shown the present modified construction. In these figures, 5a designates the channel. The sides or flanges are provided with outwardly projecting lugs 6a similar to the lugs 6 of the channel member first described. Instead of the web projections H), H, and H, previously described, I have provided a lug having its base 82 integral with the channel web and its upper portion I 2a bowed outwardly and downward so that the lip will engage .and hold the upper edge of any brick or "tile of reasonable variation in width that may be forced against it and shoved in place on the supporting members. It is evident that this form of the web projection or lug not only possessesinherent flexibility and resilience throughout its entire length, but that the hooked portion allows a greater vertical movement of the lip and provides a more ready and .much better grip than is possible with either of the other forms .of web projections previously figured and described.

As the length .of walls frequently requires the crowding or spreading of the "bricks to suit their various lengths, and in order to readily facilitate and determine their proper end-spacing, as well as the corresponding spacing of the channels, I provide that the angle 2 be punched or otherwise marked at regular intervals based on the centertc-center dimension of the bricks or tiles when laid to standard. It will thus be clear that,

when the center-to-center spacing of the bricks is to be standard, the center line of the channels should be directly in line with the nail holes or nails '3 in the angles, as shown in Figure 1.

In the application of brick or tile -veeneer to the walls of buildings by means of this invention, it will be advantageous to complete the work of attaching the angles and'channels before beginning .thesetting of bricks, the 'first course of which, both at base of wallsand above each wall opening, may be backed :by a layer of mortar suificient to fill the entire space back 01 the bricksand even with the front of the channel flanges so as to forms. solid and sealed backing, as shown in Figure 2. When desirable to set a course of bricks on end, as is frequently the case above wall openings, the channels "must be attached accordingly and the angles may be omitted as may also .be done :at the base of walls when so desired. The angles and channels, as well as the nails or other fasteners, should be coated to resist oxidation, unless made of nonvoxidizing metal.
