Sept. 6, 1966 J. M. MOORE WINDOW PANE MOLDING Filed Dec. 16, 19s:

FIG. 6

INVENTOR. JAMES M. [MOORE CPYXYAMWQQ'N A T TOR/V5 V United States Patent "ice 3,271,232 WINDOW PANE MOLDING James M. Moore, West Keansburg, NJ. (Rte. 5, Box 198, Keyport, NJ.) Filed Dec. 16, 1963, Ser. No. 330,862 1 Claim. (Cl. 161-175) My invention relates to glazed windows generally and specifically to a molding adapted to secure glass window panes to the window sash.

Putty is commonly employed to secure window panes to the sash. However, the proper application of putty is both difficult and time consuming. Moreover, putty tends to dry, shrink, crumble and loosen the window pane thereby breaking its weather seal. Further, putty leaves a hard, adhering residue which clings tenaciously to the window sash and which must be scraped off before a new window pane is installed.

Therefore, it is among the objects and advantages of my invention to provide a window pane molding having waterproof adhesive applied to its surfaces which are in contact with both the sash and window glass.

Another object of my invention is to provide a Window pane molding which has two, fiat, generally rectangular surfaces at right angles to each joined by a chamfered surface.

Still another object of my invention is to provide a window pane molding employing pressure sensitive adhesive on surfaces in contact with the sash and the pane to secure both the pane and the molding to the sash, and to provide a weather seal therebetween.

A further object of my invention is to provide a window pane molding having a pressure sensitive adhesive on its contact surfaces which is fabricated in relatively long, straight, segments which may be cut to the desired length and mitered for application to the sash.

Yet a further object of my invention is to provide a window pane molding in which the adhesive on the contact surfaces thereof is covered with a detachable protective sheet.

These objects and advantages as well as other objects and advantages may be achieved by my invention, four embodiments of which are illustrated in the drawings in which:

FIGURE 1 is a view in perspective of one form of my window pane molding;

FIGURE 2 is an end elevational, cross-sectional view of another form of my window pane molding;

FIGURE 3 is an end elevational, cross-sectional view of a third embodiment of my invention;

FIGURE 4 is an end elevational, cross-sectional view of a fourth embodiment of my invention;

FIGURE 5 is an end elevational, cross-sectional View of the molding shown in FIGURE 1 securing a window pane to a sash;

FIGURE 6 is a view in perspective of the molding shown in FIGURE 1 rotated 180 degrees to show the adhesive surfaces and the protective sheet.

Referring now to the drawing in detail and specifically to the embodiment illustrated in FIGURES 1, 5 and 6 my molding comprises a solid, elongated member 11 having a generally sectoral cross-sectional configuration. A pair of flat, generally rectangular contact surfaces 12 and 13, disposed at right angles to each other are joined together by an arcuate external surface 14. The flat, generally rectangular contact surfaces 12 and 13 are joined together by a third, flat, elongated generally rectangular chamfered surface 15 disposed at an angle of approximately 135 degrees to each of the said contact surfaces 12 and 13. The width of the contact surfaces 12 and 13 are shown to be equal but may be unequal.

3,271,232 Patented Sept. 6, 1966 Each of the contact surfaces 12 and 13 and the chamfered surface 15 are provided with a layer of a suitable waterproof pressure sensitive adhesive 16. The adhesive 16 is adapted to adhere to glass, wood and metal surfaces. As shown in FIGURE 6, the surfaces 12, 13 and 15, covered with the adhesive 16 are provided with an easily detachable protective paper 17. The paper 17 can be torn along one of the edges 18 joining the chamfered surface 15 to one of the contact surfaces 12 or 13. When the paper 17 is torn along the edge 18, the adhesive 16 will not be damaged during removal of the paper 17. In addition, the paper 17 may be provided with perforations 19 along the edge 18 to facilitate tearing.

In operation, my molding is sold in long, continuous lengths which may be cut to size and mitered for application. The glass 20 is seated in the sash 21, as is shown in FIGURE 5. The protective paper 17 is stripped from the molding 11 and the molding mitered and set into position with one contact surface 11 engaged to the glass 20 and the other contact surface 13 engaged to the sash 21. The adhesive 16 secures the molding to the glass and the sash to the molding, and also provides a weather proof seal between the glass 20 and sash 21. It should be noted that a chamfered surface 15 provides a generally triangular space 22 between the glass 20 and the sash 21 to accommodate included material such as dirt, old putty and the like, without displacing the molding 11 from its proper position. Moreover, as the molding 11 is pressed into place, the adhesive 16 can extrude into the triangular space 22 thereby insuring an intimate bond between contact surfaces 12 and 13, and the glass 20, and sash 21 respectively. Still further, this extruded adhesive 16 provides an intimate weather seal between the bottom of the glass 20 and the sash 21.

Another embodiment of my invention is illustrated in FIGURE 2. This molding is identical to the embodiment shown in FIGURES 1, 5 and 6 except that the external surface 23 joining contact surfaces 24 and 25 is flat and disposed at an angle to the said contact surfaces.

A third embodiment of my invention is illustrated in FIGURE 3. This molding comprises a pair of relatively thin, longitudinally elongated, flat members 26 and 27, generally perpendicular to each other and joined by a chamfered member 28. The chamfered member is oriented at an angle of approximately degrees to each of the said flat contact members 26 and 27. The surface of each of the members 26, 27 and 28 on the reflex angle side thereof is provided with a layer of waterproof pressure adhesive 29. As in the embodiments shown in FIGURES 1, 5 and 6, a protective paper, not shown in FIGURE 3, may be applied to protect the adhesive 29.

A fourth embodiment is illustrated in FIGURE 4 and comprises a pair of flat, elongated, generally rectangular metal members 30 and 31. Members 30 and 31 may be fabricated from a single sheet of metal which is grooved and bent at right angles to form the said members 30 and 31. The external edge joining members 30 and 31 together is planed to provide a chamfered surface 32. A layer of pressure sensitive adhesive 33 is applied to the surface of members 30, 31 and 32 on the reflex angle side thereof. As in the case of the other embodiments of my invention, this embodiment may also be provided with a protective, easily detachable sheet over the adhesive 33.

The foregoing description is merely intended to illustrate an embodiment of the invention. The component parts have been shown and described. They each may have substitutes which may perform a substantially similar function; such substitutes may be known as proper substitutes for the said components and may have actually been known or invented before the present invention; these substitutes are contemplated as being within the scope of the appended claim, although they are not specifically catalogued herein.

I claim:

A window pane molding comprising:

(a) an elongated member,

(b) a pair of contact surfaces on said member disposed at right angles to each other,

(e) a chamfered surface joining the contact surfaces, the contact surfaces and the chamtfered smrface lying on the reflex angle side of the member,

(d) pressure sensitive adhesive on the contact surfaces,

(e) a protective sheet extending over the contact surfaces and the chamfered surface and detachably secured to the adhesive on the contact surfaces, and

(f) a row of perforations in the sheet along an edge defined by the intersection of one of the contact surfaces and the chamfered surface.
