FLEXIBLE SO FT M ETAL SAS-H-BAR.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No.,283,093, dated August 14,. 1883.
Application filed January 1d, 1883. (N model.)
- To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ALPHONSE FnIEDnIoK, a citizen of the UnitedStates, residing at Nos. 16 and 18 Hoytstreet, Brooklyn, inthe county of Kings and State of New York, have are to be formed, either throughouttheir whole extent orin part, 'with two thicknesses of various pieces of glass in uniform single lines, of
which the following is a specification.
Heretofore, in the art of making windows, screens, or panels formed in whole or in part with two thicknesses of glass, two distinct and separate frames or sashes have been used. Double sashes are used to exclude the action of cold or stormy weather, to exclude direct rays of the sun, to regulate the light of the inner decorated sash, and to embellish the latter, or to produce various effects of color in decorative work by introducing such 'glass in the outer sash as will best serve the purpose desired. a
. My invention consists of a single sash-bar, to be rolled out of lead, soft metal, or composition of metals, so as to form a center-bar of such shape as required for light or heavy" work and of such width as required to properly distance the inner from the outer surface of glass to be glazed, said center bar to have two flanges projecting from each of two opposite sides of suchlength as required for hold- 'ing the thickest glass to be glazed, and forming rabbets on which the glass is afterwardaid.
The process of forming the double sash is as follows: The lead sash-bars are cut to such lengths as required, then bent and joined at all connections overadesign or a pattern surface previously prepared and made for the purpose for therequired windows, screens, 'or
'panels. The glass, which is alsocut or shaped,
rabbets, and is separated bythe projecting flanges, which, after cementing the cavities between glass and flanges, are turned over down upon the glass.
flanges are then floated over with solder. As thin and thick glass may be joined together, it is well, before soldering, to trimor cut away the superfluous projections of the flanges, so as to make them uniform. The single sash thus formedis then turned over and glazed uponthe other side in like manner to that above described, thus forming a double glass sash with a single sash-bar frame.
The application of the sash-bar hereinbefore describedis further explained in the accom= panyingdrawings, in which- Figure 1 represents a sectional view of the improved sash-bar above described, in which A is the center bar, B the flanges, and O the rabbets to receive the glass E. Two sides of the center bar may be hollowed out, as shown in Fig. 2, for purposes of economy and lightness. Fig. 3 represents a design fora win .dow screen or panel, in which E is the glass. Fig. e'represents a sectional view of Fig. 3 through the line X Y, Fig. 3. Fig. 5 represcnts, in transverse-section, forms of the bar.
Similar letters refer to like parts.
Having fully described my invention, its object, and manner of using the same, what I desire to claim and secureby Letters Patent Ac'ombination soft-metal sash-bar for joining and glazing two thicknesses of heavy and light glass of uniform or of varying thick nesses combined, formed with a continuous j ecting from each of two opposite sides of the saidcenter bar, as shown in Fig. 5, substantially as and for the purposes hereinbefore de scribed.
