United States Patent 3,012,642 WlNDOW AND LIKE FRAMES Michael Emmerich, Sudstrasse 11, Bergheim (Sieg), Germany Filed Aug. 6, 1958, Ser. No. 753,495 Ciaims priority, application Germany Oct. 16, 1957 Claims. (Cl. 189-78) This invention relates to improvements in window structures and more particularly to frame and sash members for windows and partitions of the type in which the frame, sash or both are protected by an anti corrosive covering.
The object of the invention is the provision of resilient coverings for the sash members, with the glass or partitions being mounted in the resilient covering and secured thereto by co-operating members also or resilient material.
The invention comprises window members enclosed by resilient covers formed with iianges and a dovetail groove or slot to receive a correspondingly grooved or slotted beading formed with a body portion, a pane or the like being mounted between the flange and the body portion.
The invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings:
FlG. l s-hows a longitudinal section through a casement window with double glass, the frame and sash of which consists of a steel pro-tile of I-shaped cross section covered with synthetic material;
FIG. 2 shows a longitudinal sect-ion through a pivoted window with single glass, the frame of which co-nsists of a steel prole of C-shape in cross section covered with synthetic material;
FIG. 3 shows a corner section through a double window with double glass, the sash of which consists of a square tube covered with resilient synthetic material and in which the glass panes are held by synthetic material strips;
FIG. 4 shows a cross section through the middle transoms of the window shown in FIG. 3;
FIG. 5 shows a cross section through a modified window with double glass similar to FIG. 3 in which the holding of the glass panes is effected by angle sections clamped thereon, and
FIG. 6 shows a cross section through a window similar to FIG. 5 but with single glass.
A window frame and sash for 4the support of a glass pane or a partition are formed respectively by the hollow horizontal I section members 1 and solid members Z enclosed by a covering of a resilient plastic material 3 so that the core members 1 and 2 provide a reinforcement for the resilient material and are enclosed thereby to protect them from corrosion due to chemical or atmospheric influences.
The members 1 and 2 are interchangeable and the covers 3 are also interchangeable so that the same window structure is applicable to all types of windows such as easement, horizontally pivoted, and reversing as well as to single and double or insulating windows.
The core members 2 may be suitably mounted at their ends either in masonry or otherwise. The solid member 2 (FIG. l) is formed with the cover 3 enclosing the member 2 and secured thereto by Wedge shaped beading or locking strips S, sprung into dovetail recesses 6 in the cover 3. The cover 3 is formed with a vange which may be embedded in masonry along the top of the opening for the window or partition. The beading along the under side ofthe member 2 is formed with a ilange 8 to en-gage a corresponding liange 8 on a locking beading for securing a cover 3 to the hollow member 1 enclosed by a similar covering, the iiange on which engages the outside of the covering 3 on the solid member 2.
The lower or second solid member 2 is similarly mounted on a sill with a corresponding hollow member 1 f 3,012,642 l CC mounted thereon, the beading 8 on the solid member 2 engaging a dovetail slot in the covering 3 thereof.
A sheet of glass y12 or a partition is inserted into the space between the upper and lower anges of the sash covering 3 for the hollow members 1 and a securing beading 7 formed with a dovetail slot on one surface and with a hollow body portion on its other surface to engage the inner surface of the glass or partition is sprung -into the dovetail groove on the underside of the upper hollow member 2.
The sheet of glass or partition is similarly secured along its lower edge.
A second sheet of glass or partition is inserted into the space to engage the body portions of the two headings 7 and is secured in position by a top and bottom holding strip 9. Two air cushions are formed between the members 1 and 2.
The reinforcing members may be of C section (FIG. 2) with the covering 11 sprung over the opening to form the dovetail slot or groove and with the beading 13 sprung thereinto. The beading 13 is formed with a ange to engage a single sheet of glass 12 or a partition instead of the two sheets shown in FIG. 1. The ilanges 16 correspond to the flanges 8 shown in FIG. l and corresponding anges 14 and 15 are formed on the covering. The lower iiange 15 is formed with a channel 17 for draining oit any water entering the air space from the cover 11 and the cover may be provided with a strip for preventing the entry of water.
In FIGS. 3 and 4 the sash core or member 18 corresponding to the member 1 in FIG. 1 is provided with a resilient cover 19 the edges of which are beaded.
A resilient member 20` is provided with a holding strip 21 engaging grooves in the member and together with strip 21 is secured by a screw onto the vmember 18 so that the grooves in the member 20 cover and hold the beaded ends of the cover 19. A glass pane 22 is iixed by synthetic material strips 23 adhered to the cover 19. The frame member 24 consisting of a U-protlle section is covered with a resilient synthetic material section 25.
The window structure cross sections illustrated in FIGS. 5 and 6 have, for holding the vglass panes 26 angle sections 27 which engage corresponding recesses of the covering material 29 and 30 with dovetail-shaped nose portions 28.
By means of `this arrangement of the inner and outer panes of the window can be made of different colors in that panes of a different color are used.
