EAVE-TROUGH AND DRAIN-PIPE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Oct. 31, 1905.
Application filed February '7, 1905. Serial No. 244,543.
To (all whom, it mmrv/ concern.-
Be it known that I, SIEGFRIED VOG'EL, a citizen of the United States,residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fave-Troughs and Drain- Pipes, of which the following is a specification. such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to cave-troughs or leads and drain-pipes; and the object thereof is to provide an eave-trough or lead with means whereby the entrance to the drain-pipe is covered and protected and whereby the clogging or freezing of the drain-pipe will be prevented.
The invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawings form a part, in which the separate parts of my improvement are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views, and in which- Figure 1 is a longitudinal section of a double cave-trough or lead provided with my improvement and on the line in a; of Fig. 3, but on a smaller scale; Fig. 2, a similar view of a single eave-trough or lead on a larger scale than Fig. 1, and Fig. 3 across-section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2.
In Fig. l of the drawings I have shown an cave-trough or lead composed of two parts a and a ,and this cave-trough or lead is of the form usually employed in connection with two or more houses, the said cave-trough or lead being provided centrally with a drain-pipe 6 and the separate parts of the eave-trough or lead being inclined downwardly toward said drain-pipe in such a manner that the water in the separate parts of the cave-trough or lead flows in the direction of the arrows :0 toward the drain-pipe b. In this form of construction I provide two combined shields and strainers c, which are employed over the drain-pipe b, and each consist of atop plate 0 and adownwardly-inclined portion 0 and the top plates 0 are provided with upwardly and outwardly directed side flanges 0, which are inserted into keepers 0 and said combined shields and strainers are removable from the keepers 0 but when in the position shown in Fig. 1 they cover the ends of the drain-pipe t and also prevent any foreign substances or any large substances from flowing into the drain-pipe,
the strainers 0 being of such shape as to close the cave-trough or lead.
Each of the combined shields and strainers is provided at its outer end with a thumb and finger piece 0, whereby it may be manipulated so as to insert it into position, as shown in Fig. 1, or remove it from such position, and when said combination shields and strainers are in the position shown in Fig. 1 they prevent snow or other substances or material from falling into the drainpipe or being thrown into the drain-pipe and at the same time strain the water which flows through the cave-trough or lead into the drain-pipe.
In Fig. 2 I have shown my improvement applied to a single eave-trough or lead in which the water flows in the direction of the arrow y, and in this case the drain-pipe b is at the end of the cave-trough or lead, and with this exception the construction is the same as that shown in Fig. 1; but in this form of construction only one shield and strainer is employed.
Although Fig. 3 is described as a section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2, it is also a section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1, but on a larger scale, and Fig. 3 also shows the shape of the cavetrough' or lead in cross-section and the shape of the strainer part c of the combined shields and strainers 0.
My invention, however, is not limited to any particular shape of eave-trough or lead nor to the material of which the same is composed, and various changes in and modifications of the construction herein described may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention or sacrificing its advantages.
By making the shield and strainer or shields and strainers detachable they may be easily removed for the purpose of bending the adjacent parts of the cave-trough or lead around the connection of the drain-pipe, and new shields and strainers may be placed in position or substituted for the old ones whenever desired.
Having fully described my invention, whatI claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. An cave-trough or lead provided with the usual drain-pipe, and a shield and strainer comprising a horizontal top portion and a downwardly-directed perforated end portion, the top portion being provided with side flanges, and the top of the trough being provided with side keepers adapted to receive said flanges whereby the shield and strainer may be slipped into position over the drainpipe, substantially as shown and described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my inventionI have signed my name, in presence of the subscribing Witnesses, this 6th day of February, 1905.
