Claims.

This invention relates to new and useful im- 'provements in a sliding and swinging window.

The invention has for an object the construction of a window as mentioned which is char- 5 acterized by the provision of sash support strips upon which and with which the sashes are mounted and cooperate. Specifically, an arrangement is proposed for cooperating between the sash support strips, the window frame, and the sashes whereby these parts may be drawn together to weatherproof the window.

A further object of the invention is the provision of window strip tongues and grooves on the support strips and the window frame, and interengaging strips on the cooperative sash strips and sashes for drawing the sash support strips and sashes together and drawing the said tongues against the sides of said grooves.

A still further object of the invention is the provision of means for adjusting certain of said inter-engaging strips so that the degree to which the sash strips and sashes and the weather strips are drawn together may be adjusted.

Another object of the invention is the construction of a device as mentioned which is simple and durable and which may be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:-

Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of a window construction according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. l but illustrating the inner sash swung open. V 40 Fig. 3 is another view similar to Fig. 1 but illustrating both sashes swung open and moved to different elevations.

Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3 but showing both of the sashes at the top positions.

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary horizontal sectional View taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary horizontal sectional view taken on the line 66 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 7 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view 50 taken on the line 'l-l of Fig. 2.

Fig. 8 is a fragmentary perspective view showing the details of one of the support strips.

Fig. 9 is a fragmentary perspective View of a portion of one of the sashes.

Fig. 10 is a fragmentary enlarged horig ontal sectional view taken on the line Ill-l0 of Fig. 1. Fig. 11 is a fragmentary side elevational view of one of the support strips per se showing the details of construction of one of the inter-engaging strips previously mentioned. 5

The sliding and swinging window, according to this invention, comprises a window frame In having guide strips Ill lfl and H! forming track grooves II and I2 for the outer and inner sashes respectively. Sash support strips l3 are slidably mounted in said track grooves. These sash support strips are supported by cords M which extend over pulleys l5 in the frame I0 and are connected with the counterweights Hi.

There is an inner sash II which is hingedly mounted at one side upon one of the said support strips l3 by several hinges Hi. This inner sash strip is mounted upon the sash support strip working in the inner sash groove l2. The free edge of the sash I1 is adapted to cooperate with the other support strip l3 which is in the opposite side of the window frame in the sash groove 7 I2. An outer sash I9 is hingedly mounted by the hinges 20 to one of the sash support strips l3 which is operated in theouter sash groove H. 25 The outer edge of this sash I9 is adapted to cooperate with another sash support strip I3 which is on the opposite side of the window frame and" within the outer'sash groove II. a

Each free sash support strip I3 is provided with a latch 22 consisting of an inverted T-shaped member having a stem portion 22 projecting upwards and acting as a handle, and a cross bar 22 acting as the bolt of the latch. A metallic angle member 23 is'mounted on the top edge of each of the said support strips l3 for reinforcing said strips and assisting in holding the latches. These angle members have elongated slots 23% in their top arms through which the handles 22 project. In the side arms they are formed with openings 23 through which the bolt portions 22 of the latches may extend and engage into openings 24 in keeper strips 25 which are attached on the edges of the window sashes. With this arrangement it is possible to latch the sash support strips to the sashes or to free the strips as desired.

The bolt 22 of each of the latches is adapted to extend from the inner or from the outer face of the support strip. When it extends from the outer face of the support strip, as indicated by the dot and dash lines in Figs. 8 and 11, it connects with the sash. In the lowered positions of the support strips it is possible to extend the P 5 23 from the inner faces thereof and then .55
