Primary Examiner-Henry C. Sutherland Assistant Examiner-Carl D. Friedman 5 7 ABSTRACT An insulation assembly for a building structure and which includes a device for quickly and easily securing the insulation, to wall joists so to eliminate the job of stapling insulation to the joists, the present insulator consisting of soft woolly insulation material such as glass-fiber placed between paper or equivalent sheets which are glued together along their side edges, and
these side edges on one outer side of having a pressure sensitive adhesive applied thereto which is covered by V a removable protective strip of paper that can be peeled off to expose the adhesive for placements against the wall joists.

//V VEA/TO/Q STICK ON INSULATORS This invention relates generally to structured insulation. It is generally well known in the building trade that sheets of wall and ceiling insulation comes in rolls which is unrolled and positioned between floor or wall joists or studs and is then secured thereto by stapling. The stapling operation takes time particularly where a great amount of insulation is being applied. This situation accordingly is in need of an improvement.
Accordingly it is a principle object of the present invention to provide an insulation assembly that has self contained means to attach to the studs or joists of a building construction so to eliminate the necessity of stapling the same.
Another object is to provide an insulation assembly wherein adhesive strips are incorporated along the side edges thereof so that the assembly can be adhesively secured by simply sticking on.
Another object is to provide an insulation assembly wherein the adhesive strip is designed so to not readily peel off a securing support.
Other objects are to provide. a stick on insulator which is simple in design, inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction, easy to use and efficient in operation.
These and other objects will be readily evident upon a study of the following specification and the accompanying drawing wherein:
FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the invention secured to building studs.
FIG. 2 is a view of the insulation assembly is process of being readied for mounting to studs.
FIG. 3 is an enlarged cross sectional view taken on line 3-3 ofFIG. 2.
FIG. 4 is a view similar to FIG. 1 and showing a modified design of the invention.
FIG. 5 is an enlarged detail thereof showing the adhesive being exposed for mounting the insulation.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, and more particularly at this time to FIG. 1 to 3, the reference numeral represents a stick on insulation assembly according to the present invention wherein there is a conside of one of the papers 13 a coating of pressure sensitive adhesive 16 which is then covered by a protective plastic coated paper strip 17.
In operative use, to secure the assembly 10 to a stud 18, all that is necessary is to peel off the strip 17 so to expose the adhesive 16. The assembly is then placed against the studs and with a rubbing pressure by a hand, the insulation is quickly and easily secured in position.
In a modified design of the invention shown in FIG. 4 and 5, the insulation assembly 19 includes all of the above described features and is additionally provided with means to prevent the assembly 10 from peeling off the studs, such as might occur if a part of the adhesive 16 looses its hold of the stud, such as if a top of the insulation 10 gets loose, then gravity would cause the top of it to roll down andpeel off the stud.
1118 is prevented in the assembly 19 by means of a series of inverted U-shaped slits 20 made through the edge area 14 of the assembly 10 so that an upwardly extending tongue 21 continues to grip the stud in case the remainder of the edge area gets loosened. The lower ends of the slits are rounded as shown at 22 to aid in preventing a tear to start as likely as would occur if it were sharp, thus preventing a loosened edge area 14 from tearing in case an upper portion is loosened and hangs down.
Thus a stick on insulation is provided.
While various changes may be made in the detail construction it is to be understood that such changes will be within the spirit and scope of the present invention.
1. In a stick-on insulation, the combination of an assembly comprised of a woolly mass of insulating material such as glass-fiber, a pair of rectangular paper panels, said woolly mass being placed between said papers, and the longitudinal side edges of said papers being secured together to form a pocket within which said mass is contained and said assembly means to be secured to building studs, wherein said means com prises a coating of pressure sensitive adhesive applied along said side edge and to an outer side of one of said papers, said adhesive being temporarily protected from contact by foreign objects by means of a strip of plastic coated paper that can be readily peeled off, wherein said side edges having said pressure sensitive adhesive applied thereto are additionally provided with a series of inverted U-shaped slits so as to form upwardly extending tongues for maintaining adhesion to said studs while other portions of said adhesive become loosened.
