ApplicationMarnza1937, seriaiNq. 133,682 4 claims.V (o1. 2o-(4') `'Ille Yinvention Irelates to awall or ceiling construction and more especially to an interior iinfishing structure and fastener therefor. Y

The-primary object of the 1invention isA the 5 f provision of a'structure of this character, wherein strip material having surface decorative charfacteristics' or plain may -be suspended from a `ceiling or walls and fastened in place to be held permanent or stationary.

O Another object-of the invention is the provision of-al structure of this character, wherein a finish is had to the ceiling or walls of an enclosure and sound corrected, the fastening being had in a novel manner to give permanency to the 5 finish. Y

A further object of the invention is the provision of a structure of this character, which is simple in its make-up, thoroughly reliable and efficient in operation, strong, durable, lending attractiveness and correcting sound within an enclosure, strong, durable, and inexpensive to manufacture and install.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the features of construction,

5 combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated inV the accompanying drawings, which disclose the preferred embodiment of the invention and point- Y ed out in the claims hereuntoV appended. In the accompanying drawings:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary plan View of an interior finishing structure as applied to a wall or ceiling and in accordance with the invention.

Figure 2 is an enlarged sectional view thereof.

Figure 3 is a plan view of a strip showing the manner of cutting thereof to form corresponding or similar pieces formed therefrom.

Figure 4 is a perspective View of one of the fasteners of the structure,

40 Figure 5 is an enlarged sectional view on the line 5-5 of Figure 2 looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 6 is a perspective view of one of the channeled pieces for the engagement of the fas- 45 teners for the structure therewith.

Figure 7 is a fragmentary perspective view of a modified form of finishing strip.

Figures 8 and 9 are further modifications of a nishing strip. 0 Figure 10 is a perspective view of a modied form of fastener shown in Figure 4. Y

Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawings. Y Y 5 Referring to the drawings in detail, I0 designates portions. of a seriesof-oists foraI V ceiling or studs for-a-wall construction-these being conventionaljand attachedto `'each of I said joists or place 'by nails orotherjfasteners I2 and'dis- `posed 'longitudinally of the joists kor vstuds throughout the length ltlier'eof. s'trip-'I-I. provides a slot I3 confronted at-o'p'positefsides thereof with in-turned-flang'es #Il bntfroiriltli `said strip.

Adapted to beidisposednext'to fthe strips-II carried bythe joists or-fstuds Iis a'i'l'riishing-'Yma-V terial, preferably composed of a series of strips Y I5, the exposed surfaces thereof being plain or decorative, Vadecorative characteristic being indicated at I6. Saddling each strip I5 at interstrips II are inverted substantially U-shaped clips I1, these having opposed biting jaws I8Y which bite into opposite side surfaces of the strips I5 for the securing of the clips thereto while built upon each clip at one end thereof is Van inverted L-shaped tongue I9 which interlocks or interfits with the strip Il through the slot I3 I0. These strips I5 are'placedside by side in the iinishing'of the ceiling, or wall as is clearly shown inv Figure 1 of the drawings. VThe decorative characteristic I6 of each strip givesaY check-V y imm-Nr .-oszrrrcs Yvals registering with the joists or studsV IIlor theYV I erboard surface formation to the .Y finished wall or ceiling. Y Y

In Figure 7 of the drawings there isY shown a modification, wherein the strip 2E is plain faced.

In Figure 8 of the drawingsthere is shown a further modification, wherein the'exposed surface of the strip 2I is i'luted or corrugated as atV` 22 for decorative purposes. Y 1

:loY In Figure 9 of the drawings there is shown a.Y Y. Y

still further modification, wherein the strip 2'3 at the exposed surface thereofY is serrated or saw toothed at 24.

In Figure 3 of the drawings there isshown an example of cutting the strips I5 with the decorative surface I6 so that two sections may be made from one piece of material in a single operation.V

In Figure l0 of the drawings thereris shown a modified form of clip, wherein thesides 25 have Y cut andstruck inwardly therefrom spacedjspurs Y or teeth 26 and with this exception the clip in its Vformation is identical with the-clip I1 shown Y Y 5,5V

in Figure 4 of the said drawingsthese spurs or teeth 26 being driven into opposite sides of the strip l5 for the fastening of the clip thereto.

It is, of course, understood that the iinishing strips may-be a natural color or stained, painted or otherwise treated to give the desired effect for decorative purposes.

What is claimed is:

1. VA structure of the character described comprising substantially rectangular shaped iinishing sections in strip form, a series of channeled members adapted vto be fixed to a framework in spaced relation to each other crosswise of said finishing sections and having opposite inturned flanges longitudinally thereof, and a plurality of separate clips saddling the iinishing sections and interlocked with the same and the channeled members at one or both inbent anges thereof, respec-V tively. Y Y

2. A structure of the character described comprising substantially rectangular shaped iinishing sections in strip form, a series of channeled members adapted to be xed to a framework in spaced relation to each other crosswise of said finishing sections and having opposite inturned flanges longitudinally thereof, and a plurality of separate clips saddling the finishing sections and Yinterlocked with the same and the channeled members at one or both inbent anges thereof,

yrespectively, the saidsections being decorative and made from sound correcting material for exterior finish toa wall or ceiling.

3. A structure of the character described comprising substantially rectangular shaped flnishing sections in strip form, a series of channeled members adapted to be fixed to a framework in spaced relation to each other crosswise of said I finishing sections and having opposite inturned anges longitudinally thereof, a plurality of separate Vclips saddling the finishing sections and interlocked with the same and the channeled members at one or both inbent iianges thereof, respectively, the said sections being decorative and made from sound correcting material for exterior finish to a wall or ceiling, and biting portions on said clips for engaging the sections when saddling the same.

4. A structure of the character described comprising substantially rectangular shaped finishing sections in strip form, a series of channeled members adapted to be iixed to a framework in spaced relationrto each other crosswise of said finishing sections and having opposite inturned iianges longitudinally thereof, a plurality of separate clips saddling the finishing sections' and nterlocked with the same and the channeled members at one or both inbent flanges thereof, respectively, the said sections being decorative and made from sound correcting material for exterior finish to a wall or ceiling, biting portions on said clips for engaging the sections when saddling the same, and tongues on the clips and interiitted with the channeled members.
