' 'Applicatidn.iune11,1945.seria1Narsosgsis The invention relatesto "door 'easements and has for its object the obtaining of a construction of'rnetal casement designedfor use in connection with either metal or Wood doors.

It is a further object to obtain a construction which can be applied to wooden door frames or to the studding on opposite sides of the door opening.

Still further it is an obj ect to obtain a construction which is adjustable to different widths of walls. With these objects in view the invention consists in the construction as hereinafter set forth.

In the drawings: i

Fig. 1 is a horizontal section through one form of my improved Casement;

Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 5 are similar views through modied constructions.

My improved easement is lformed from metal strips which are attachable to the Wooden framing of the door opening. As shown in Fig. 1, the strip A has a marginal portion A thereof which may be attached to the outer face of a wooden stud B of the door framing. The opposite edge portion A2 is attached to the inner face of the member B and between these portions is the offset portion A3 forming a door jam or stop. There is also the return bent portion A4 adjacen-t to the portion A and the `channel portion A5 adjacent to the portion A2. and A5 are adjacent to the plaster nish of the wall in which the door opening is formed. Thus, as indicated in Fig. 1, the wall containing the door opening is formed of plaster board C attached to the studding and having a portion C' extending into the door opening up lto the portion A5 of the member A. The plaster D covers the boards C and C and forms a nish which extends to the portions A4 and A5, the terminal plaster edges being protected by said portions. The strip A may be secured by nails E which securely hold it from displacement.

Where it is desired to carry the easement completely through the door opening, a :construction may be used, such as shown in Fig. 2. In this the member A is provided with an attachment flange A6 similar to the dang-e A but on the opposite side of the member B, there is also a return bent portion A'I similar to the portion A4 and which protects the edge of the plaster nish; otherwise, the construction is the same to that of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 shows a construction which may be adjusted to Walls of different thicknesses. In this two sections F and F' are formed with securing portions F2 similar to the portions A These latter portions A4 a oie-inks. (015189-416) A and A6 vfor attachment to 'framing .post.B. The vsection -F has an` offset stop portion F3 similarfto the portion A3 bu-trpronails E `opposite `ends of the vided with a return bent portion F4 adjacent to the member B :for receiving a portion F5 on the member F. The portions F4 and F5 thus provide for adjustment to suit different widths of walls and these are secured to the member Bl by In the modified iconstruction shown in Fig. 4, a casing strip G has a portion G' for attachment to the member B similar to Figs. 1 and 2 and having a portion G2 for protecting the edge of the plaster nish on one yface of the Wall. There is then a portion G3 which is adjacent to one edge of the door and an offset portion G4 forming the door stop. A portion G5 extends from the portion G4 around the member B to the opposite face of the Wall terminating in portions G6 and GI similar to the portions G2 and G. A

hinge H for a door, such as I, may have one securing plate H thereof extending through a slot in the portion G2 and secured tothe portion G3, While the other plate is similarly attached to the door I.

Fig. 5 shows a construction in which a strip J has arcuate portions J and J2 extending through the door opening and attached to the member B i by portions J2 similar to the portions G and G2 of Fig. 4. There is no stop in this construction and it is designed for use With a door which swings open in opposite directions from the casement. The lining portion of the casing adjacent to the oiset stop portion. thereon may be apertured as indicated at Kto receive a latch or bolt (not shown) which may be mounted within the door to be projected through a registering aper ture K therein.

What I claim as my invention is:

l. A cas-ement for door frame-s comprising a pair of complementary strips each of a cross section having a portion forming a lining for the door opening and a portion for attachment to the door frame, the door lining portion of one of said strips having an open return bend therein with the under portion thereof extending beyond the upper portion and the lining portion of the other strip telescopically engaging said open return bend to provide for adjustment to different Widths of door frames and means engaging the projection on said under portion for securing it to said door frame being concealed by the overlying strip.

2. A easement for door frames comprising a pair of complementary strips, each having a portion for lining the door opening, a portion adjacent to the outer face of the frame forming a protecting edge for the plaster nisli and an attachment portion for underlying the plaster to be concealed thereby, the lining portion of one of said strips having an open return bend therein with the unde-r portion thereof extending beyond the upper portion and the lining portion of the other strip telescopically engaging said open return 'bend to provide for adjustment to diierent widths ofdoor frames, and means engaging the projection on said under portion for securing it to said door frame being concealed by the overlying strip.

3. A Casement for door frames comprising av 4 scopically engaging said open return bend and concealing the attachment portion of the rst mentioned strip whereby said strips are relatively adjustable for different Widths of door frames.
