8 Claims. (Cl. 72,-127) rugations extendingtransversely across the same, said corrugations comprising continuous ridge and Valley formations normally of equal amplitude and extending on opposite sides of the central horizontal plane of the sheet.

The corrugations on the flashing sheet, particularly the alternate ridges A and the valleys B defining the same, are continuous transversely across the flashing sheet, except that a change 30 bersome machine.

By virtue of the spacing or zone formation having a lessening of amplitude respectively of the valleys and ridges without breaking the continuous corrugated contour, the desired bending may be accomplished while as indicated in Figure 6 the path along the valleys for seepage of water is maintained, the valley at all times being lower than the lowermost portion of the adjacent ridge to thus provide a continuous path of flow for seepage water as the flashing isbent for an installation, shown partially broken'away in Figure 6.

As shown in Figures'l and 3, some of the ridge formations have stamped depressions I9 formed therein, the same being spaced and serving as looking formations to bond the flashing as it is embedded in plaster between a masonry course to prevent the flashing from horizontal or lateral displacement.

The flashing sheets, being of corrugated conformation, may be interlocked at their lateral ends to provide a continuous length applicable for use in building construction, the respective depressions forming the bonding elements serving as guides in conjunction with the normal corrugated formation of the flashing sheets to maintain the interlocked sheets from lateral displacement or separation.

It is obvious that various changes and modifications may be made to the details of construction without departing from the general spirit of the invention as set forth in the appended claims.

I claim:

1. A through Wall flashing sheet having transverse corrugations extending continuously thereacross, said corrugations being interrupted as to contour along their length by short sections of different amplitude than that of the remaining long sections connected thereby, said short corrugated sections serving as longitudinal bending zones for said flashing sheet.

2. A through wall flashing sheet having continuous transverse corrugations extending thereacross, said corrugations being interrupted as to contour by spaced short sections of different amplitude than that of the remaining sections connected thereby, said short corrugated sections defining a continuous longitudinal area and serv-' ing as longitudinal bending zones for said flashing sheet.

3. A through wall flashing sheet having continuous transverse corrugations defining alternate ridge and valley formations extending thereacross, said ridge and valley formations of said corrugations being interrupted as to contour along their length by short sections of different amplitude than that of the long sections connected thereby, said short corrugated sections defining a continuous longitudinal area and serving as longitudinal bending zones for said flashing sheet.

4. A through wall flashing sheet having continuous transverse corrugations defining ridge and valley formations extending thereacross, said corrugations being interrupted alternately as to contour along their length by short sections of corrugations, wherein successively the ridges and valleys are of different amplitude than that of the long sections connected thereby, said short corrugated sections defining continuous longitudinal areas serving successively as bending zones for said flashing sheet to provide a predetermined zigzag right angular conformation of the flashing sheet upon bending.

5. A through wall flashing sheet having continuous transverse corrugations defining alternate ridge and valley formations extending thereacross, said ridge and valley formations of said corrugations being interrupted as to contour along their length by short sections of different amplitude than that of the long sections connected thereby, said short corrugated sections defining a continuous longitudinal area and serving as longitudinal bending zones for said flashing sheet, the valleys of the corrugation being so formed to provide at all times a continuous transverse trough for seepage water along the length and at the bending zones.

6. A through wall flashing sheet having continuous transverse corrugations defining ridge and valley formations extending thereacross, said corrugations being interrupted alternately as to contour along their length by short sections of corrugations, wherein successively the ridges and valleys are of different amplitude than that of the long sections connected thereby, said short corrugated sections defining continuous longitudinal areas serving successively as bending zones for said flashing sheet to provide a predetermined zigzag right angular conformation of the flashing sheet upon bending, the valleys of the corrugation being so formed to provide at all times a continuous transverse trough for seepage water along the length and at the bending zones.

'7. A through wall flashing sheet having continuous transverse corrugations comprised of ridge and valley formations extending thereacross, said transverse corrugations being shaped to provide lengths having common amplitude of the ridge and valley formations spaced by and connected to shorter lengths, wherein either the ridge or valley formations are of lesser amplitude than the other, the last named shorter lengths extending longitudinally along the flashing sheet and providing a longitudinal bending zone. 1': 8. A through Wall flashing sheet having continuous transverse corrugations comprised 011 ridge and valley formation extending thereacross, said transverse corrugations being shaped to provide body lengths having common amplitude of the ridge and valley formations spaced by and connected to shorter lengths, wherein either the ridge or valley formations are of lesser amplitude than the other, the last named shorter lengths extending longitudinally along the flashing sheet and providing a longitudinal bending zone, the ridge and valley formations of successive shorter lengths being such that the ridge of one of said connecting shorter lengths is a continuation of the ridge of the spaced body lengths leading thereto, while the valley of said shorter length is of lesser amplitude than that of the valley of the body length leading thereto, While as to the next connecting shorter length, the valley thereof is a continuation of that of the body length leading thereto, and the ridge thereof is of lesser amplitude than that of the ridge of the body length leading thereto.
