TILE FLOORING.

EPEGIFICATION forming'part of Letters Patent N 0. 726,506, dated April 28, 1903.

Application filed retail 9, 1903.

$0 (tZZ whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES P. CAPEN, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city of St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tile Flooring, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification.

My invention relates to an improved manner of forming blocks for use in making floors, the object being to so form the blocks that they will be overlapping with each other and at the same time form an upper hard and a lower soft stratum or surface each of which covers the entire area of the floor.

My invention consists in features of novelty hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in the claim.

Figure I is a perspective view showing a number of tiles embodying my invention. Fig. 11 is a perspective view of one of the tiles. Fig. III is a vertical section taken on line III III, Fig. 1.

According to my invention each tile consists of an upper layer-or stratum 1 and a lower layer or stratum 2. These two strata are made in one piece, of rubber, either by molding or casting, and the upper stratumis composed of hard rubber, while the lower stratum is more soft or yielding. The blocks or tiles are made fierial ITo. 1 12,5711 (No model.)

bound together that there can be no movement of any of the blocks with relation to each other.

While I have shown and described a rectangular tile or block, it is evident that the same may be made of hexagonal, octagonal, or other shape, in which case the upper stra tumwouldpreferablyoverhangthelowerstratrim on three or four of its sides.

I claimas my invention A tile flooring consisting of blocks, each block being composed of a lower stratum and a harder upper stratum of the same size and which overhangs the lower stratum on part of its sides, both of said strata being formed of rubber, substantially as set forth.

CHARLES P. CAPEN.
