Specification of'Letters Patent.
Patented Nv.'13, 190e.
Application filed July 13,1906. Serial No.y 326,122.
To all whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE CAssEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Hamel,
in the county of Madison and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Eaves- Trough, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in eaves-troughs, and has for its object to produce a simply-constructed device of this character whereby the eaves-trough is protected from obstruction by leaves, snow, dirt, and trash, and also protected from birds building their nests therein.
With these and other objects in view, which will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, as will be hereinafter fully described.
In the drawings forming a part of this specification, and in which corresponding parts are denoted by like designating characters, is illustrated the preferred form of the embodiment of the invention capable of carrying the same into practical operation.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a sectional view of a portion of the eaves of a roof with the improved trough applied thereto. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a por'tion ofthe eaves of a roof and a portion of the improved eaves-trough applied thereto. Fig. 3 is a detached perspective view, enlarged, of one of the braces. Fig. 4 is a sectional detail illustrating a modification in the construction.
The eaves-trough (represented at 10) is of the usual semitubular form, except that the rear wall is extended upwardly, as at 11, and connected in any suitable manner, as by screws or nails 12, to the cornice (represented at 13) and beneath the overhang of the shingles 14. j
Extending over the eaves-trough 10 for its Whole length is a shield 15, having an inclined upper face and connected, as at 16, to the extended portion 11 of the eaves-trough and with its outer edge curving downwardly, as at 17, and terminating within the outer wall of the eaves-trough, leaving a relatively narrow space 18 large enough for the entrance of the water running from the roof, but effectually excluding leaves and like trash and also preventing birds from entering the troughs and building their nests therein.
Disposed within the trough 10 at suitable intervals are braces 19, each connected at one end at 20 to the rear wall and at 21 to the front wall of the eaves-trough, and each brace also provided with an extension 22, connected to the shield 15.
The braces may be spaced at as frequent vintervals as required, and are preferably formed of strap iron or steel spilt at one end, as shown in Fig. 3, to provide a simple means for forming the projection 22.
Connected at one end to the shield 15 are a plurality of braces 23, having means at the other end for connecting to the roof, as shown. By this means the device is firmly supported and secured.
It will thus be seen that a very simple and effective protection is provided, which is readily applied and eectually prevents the entrance of obstructing matter while at the same time not preventing entrance of the water flowing from the roof.
If preferred, the body 1() of the eavestrough and the shield 15 may be in one piece or with the shield integral with the extension 1 1, as shown in Fig. 4.
Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is- 1. The combination of an eaves-trough having its rear wall extending above the front wall and a shield projecting from the extended rear wall of the eaves-trough and with the other edge within the outer edge of the same.
2. The combination of an eaves-trough, a shield extended from the -rear wall of the eaves-trough and with the other edge within the outer edge of the same, and a plurality of braces connected at the ends to the opposite edges of the eaves-trough and with extensions connected to said shield.
3. As a new article an eaves-trough formed of a single width of sheet metal folded upon itself intermediate its side edges and with one portion formed into a gutter and the other` portion formed into a shield extending over the portion of the gutter and bent downwardly at the free edge and terminating within the gutter and spaced from the outer edge.
4. The combination of an eaves-trough, a shield extended from the rear wall of the eaves-trough and with the other edge within the outer edge of the same, and a plurality of braces connected at the ends to the opposite edges of the eaves-trough and with extensions connected to said shield, and a plurality of braces connected at one end to said shield and with means at the other end for connection to the roof.
5. An eaves-trough having its inner wall Y Intestimony that I claim the foregoing as extended upwardly, a shield extending from myown I have heretolaflixed my signature 1n lo.
said extended wall and with its other edge the presence of two witnesses. Within the front wall of the eaves-trough and braces spaced apart and connected at the7 GEORGE CASSEN ends tothe opposite walls of the eaves-trough Witnesses: and each with an upward extension connected WILLIAM BUHRMANN, to said shield.
