WIRE FABRIC FOR BEDSPRINGS AND OTHER ARTICLES Filed June 1, 1955 11 T TURN/I YS.

Patented July 7, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE WIRE FABRIC FOR BEDSPRINGS AND OTHER ARTICLES Application June 1, 1935, Serial No. 24,525

3 Claims.

The invention relates to wire fabrics and more particularly to a certain member used in the fabric. It has for its main'object to provide a wire fabric member which may be used in a 5 great many ways in combination with links and spiral springs for building up the wire fabric. Another object is to provide a wire fabric which will have a fiat even surface which will not cause wear or tear on the padding or bedding placed on top of the fabric. A further object is to provide a wire fabric which may be used for numerous purposes in the upholstery art and which can be manufactured at a low cost and assembled with a minimum expenditure of time and labor.

These and various other objects and advantages will be readily understood from the following description and from the accompanying drawing of a preferred embodiment of the invention, in which, however, modifications may be made without departing from the scope of the appended claims. In the drawing Fig. 1 is a fragmental plan View showing a form of fabric made up in accordance to the invention, and

Fig. 2 is a side view of Fig. 1.

Referring now to the drawing, the fabric consists of a plurality of links [0 and a plurality of interlacing helical springs II. The links may be made of wire, as shown by the links marked H], or they may be made up of flat metal straps, as shown by the links [0A and [013. The helical springs H are flattened as plainly shown in Fig. 2 so as to not rise much above the surface of the fabric and they are preferably made of flat metal strips.

These helical springs are woven into the links by turning them and they engage the hooks in the manner plainly shown on the drawing. Not only may these spiral strips be used for connecting the links of the fabric together but they may also be used for securing spiral springs 12 to the fabric. These spiral springs are held in the same convolutions of the helical springs as are the hooks l0 and may be used to give additional support to the whole fabric. The helical springs are also used for attaching the fabric to the frame. It will of course, be understood that the design of the fabric shown might be varied in a great many ways and still be within the scope of the claims.

From the foregoing it will be seen that this fabric consists of very simple elements which can be manufactured and assembled very rapidly and at low cost.

Having described the invention and its objects, what I claim as new and wish to protect by Letters Patent is:

1. A wire fabric of the class described comprising a plurality of links, a plurality of helical springs and a plurality of spiral springs; one end of each of the links secured in one side of one of the helical springs and the other end of each of the links secured in the other side of another of the helical springs to form a fabric for covering the top convolutions of the spiral springs; and said top convolutions of the spiral springs woven into the convolutions of two adjacent helical springs to secure them to the fabric.

2. A wire fabric of the class described comprising a plurality of U-shaped links, a plurality of fiat helical springs and a plurality of spiral springs; one end of each of the links secured in one side of one of the helical springs and the other end 01' each of the links secured in the other side of another of the helical springs to form a fabric for covering the top convolutions of the spiral springs; and said top convolutions of the spiral springs woven into the convolutions of two adjacent helical springs to secure them to the fabric.

3. A wire fabric of the class described comprising a plurality of links, a plurality of helical springs and a plurality of spiral springs; one end of each of the links secured in one side of one of the helical springs and the other end of each of the links secured in the other side of another of the helical springs to form a fabric for covering the top convolutions of the spiral springs; said top convolutions of the spiral springs Woven into the convolutions of two adjacent helical springs to secure them to the fabric, and the spiral springs so located in relation to the fabric that each spiral spring will have a link passing over it.
