' 140mm. (ci. lss-18) This invention relates to glazing strips for use` of a window light embodying features of the `inin connection with light panels. It is adapted vention; 4 v for use in windows either of the easement or the Fig. 1a is a sectional transverse view showing sliding sash type, sky-lights, doors, and, in fact, the glazing strip oi' Fig. 1 separate from the other in anystructure in which a pane oi' glass or other window elements; A 5 translucent material is employed.

Putty, when used Fig. 5 is a fragmentary sectional view of thev with painted frames, or exposed to the air, dries structure shown in Flg. 4, the section being taken l5 out, hardens, cracksl and sometimes falls away in on the line 5 5 of Fig. 4 looking in thedirection pieces.

In certainpreferred embodiless of variations in the body structure of the 30 ments the glazing strip is provided with a ilange members. In a muntin bar this external contour or lip for engaging the edge of the pane and for would be duplicated at opposite sides of the bar. bearing against the pane edge with yielding In Fig. 1 disclosure is made of a frame I which pressure. carries a pane 2.

The frame I'also includes the necessity of having anv experienced glazier in an outwardly extending Web 5 and a web G which the field to do the glazing is avoided. It is a extends parallel to the plane of the pane 2. The

point, however, that the glazing strip may be webs 5 and 6 extend completely around the pane 45 sprung free when a broken pane has to be reopening at all four sides thereof. A lip 1 explaced, and may be reapplied in the same simple tends upward from the outer extremity of the manner in which it' was applied. in the rst inweb 5 andis inclined inward toward the pane 2. stance. l Putty 8l is iirst applied in the frame space Other objects and advantages will hereinafter bounded by the webs 3, 5 and 1, and the panel 50 appear. i is then put into place,being mashedinto the In-the drawinglforming part of this specificaputty which is located above the ange land outtion and illustrating several preferred embodiside the web 3. A glazing strip 5 of thin exible ments of the invention, y metal is then pressed into place.

IiiA Fig. 1 is a fragmentary viewshowing a corner The glazing strip comprises yan inwardly exi,

tending web I which is forced beneath the flange 4. The glazing strlp also comprises a web II which extends parallel to the pane 2 and in a position to overlie a margin of the pane. The glazing strip also includes a downwardly and outwardly inclined web `I2 which is formed with a shoulder I3 at its lower end, and a marginal lip I4 which extends downwardly and outwardly from the shoulder. f

When "the'web I0 of the glazing strip has been forced into place the strip is buckled sufllciently to force the lip I4 over the lip 1 of the `frame glazing strip covers the putty and protects it from the air, and thereby aids the retention of plasticity by the putty. A

Should the pane become broken, the glazing strip 9 can be conveniently removed by inserting a knife or other sharp instrument into an angle I 5 which is intentionally provided for that purpose between theshoulder I3 and the upper edge of the frame lip 1.

In the form of the invention shown in Fig. 2 the light comprises a pane I6 and a frame I1. The frame includes an innerweb lI6 which extends parallel to the plane of the pane, an outwardly extending lip I9 for engaging the inner face of the pane, and an outwardly extending web 26. Ihe outer end 2l of the web 20 is inclined downward. The frame also includes an outer web 22 which extends parallel to the plane of the pane and which terminates in an intumed flange or lip 23. The trame members I3, I9, 20, 2i, 22 and 23 define a putty receiving pocket which ex= tends completely around the pane opening. After putty has been put into this pocket the pane I6 is pressed into the position indicated and additional putty is put into ythe pocket to substantially nl] the pocket. A thin exible glazing strip 24 of non-corrosive metal is then put into place as shown in Fig. 2.

'I'he glazing strip comprises a web 21 which extends parallel to the pane and overlies a mar` gin thereof, a downwardly and outwardly extending web 29 for covering, concealing and pro tecting the putty, an inwardly extending lip 29 and a downwardly extending lip 30. The lower margin of the web 21 comprises alternate paneengaging segments 25 and upright segments for engaging the-web 2li. 'I'he bending of the segments 25 is performed after the dimensions of the pane are known, the line of the bend being selected with reference to the known dimensions of the glass. 'I'hus the plane of the segments 25 may be set inward more or less from the edge line of the segments 26 as required, to assure a snug nt of the pane. After the web 21 has been forced into place the glazing strip is buckled and the lip 39 is sprung behind the frameilange or lip 23. The flange 29 forms an angle with the upper surface of the ange or lip 23 into which a knife or other sharp instrument can be inserted for removing the glazing strip when desired. As `in the form of Fig. 1 the metallic parts are all of non-corrosive metal and are unpinted. This is tailedgroove 3,6., 'I'he glazing strip" 33'comprises an inwardly extending web' 31 for engaging the inner boundary of the dove-tailed groove, an upwardly extending web 38 for overlying a margin ofthe pane, a downwardly and outwardly extending web 39 fork covering and concealing the putty.

a shoulder or ange 40, and a retaining lip 4I which is sprung behind the shoulder at thevnuter boundary of the dove-tailed groove. Fingers 42 are struck at intervals from the web 31 and bent in a direction sothat when applied to the frame they ywill extend across an edge of the pane and support the pane. The assembly of the parts is generally the same as that of the forms previously described. The angers az are bent after the dimensions of the pane are known.

In the form of the invention shown in Figs. 4 and 5 the light comprises a pane 43, a frame 44,

vputty 45 and glazing strips 45. The illustrated frame member 44 is of hollow construction and includes an inner web or flange 41 which extends parallel to the plane of the pane. An upwardly and inwardly extending lip- 46 is provided at the outer extremity of the frame for retaining the putty and glazing strip in place. The glazing strip comprises, a web 5I which extends parallel to the plane of the pane and overlies a margin of the pane, a downwardly and outwardly extending web 52, a shoulder 53, and a retaining lip 54, 'I'he lower margin of the web 5I is divided into alternate pane engaging fingers 49 and supporting feet 59. 'I'he assembly of the parts is eiected in the same manner as that already described for the other forms.

In the embodiment of Fig. 6 the light comprises a pane 55, a frame composed of members 56, putty 51, and glazing strips 58. The frame comprises an inner web 59 having an outwardly oiset ange 60 at its upper extremity, an outwardly extending web 6I, and an outer web 62 which extends parallel to the plane of the pane. At the upper vside oi' the web 6I provision is made of an upwardly and inwardly extending retaining lip 63 at the outer' edge of the frame, and of an upwardly and inwardly extending lip 64 between the edges of the web 6I. The glazing strip comprises a web 61 which extends parallel to the pane and across a margin of the pane. The lower margin of the web 61 is divided into alternate pane engaging fingers 65 and supporting feet 66. The glazing strip also includes outwardly extending webs 69 and 69, a shoulder 10, and a retaining lip 1I. The feet 66 extend outward and rest on the upper yedge of the lip 64 and lie substantially in the plane oi' the fingers 65. As before, however, the fingers 65 are bent after the pane dimensions are known. 'Ihe lip 64 extends close to the edge of the pane and assures the tight packing of the putty all around the pane margin.

While we have illustrated and described in detail certain preferred forms of our invention, it is to be understood that changes may be made therein and the invention embodied in other structures. We do not, therefore, desire to limit ourselves to the specic constructions illustrated, but intend to cover our invention broadly in whatever form its principle-may be utilized.
