To itZZwhom ii'mdy come Mi I citizen of the-United States. of Anierica, and? resident of Cincinnati, county of- Hamilton,
usefullrnprovements in Tile Construction, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my inventionisa tilecon struc'tion; especially for use as-a covering for buildings, i'n'ywhich, the tile are of a shape such as lends itself. readilyto nianufacture;
inwhich theymay be coupled readily to the v supporting means and which is, strong and durabler; s v 1 q I will first describe the invention intjconnection with the accompanying drawings, in which like parts are indlc'atedby similar ref-' erence letters, and will then specifically set Referring tothe 1' a my. invention are" ormed with flat ex'terha and internal faces, a", anda' I I The-upper'and lower facesare made atan-acute angle to the front face, a, and with the rear part .of the face,,a in a highenplan'e thanthe forward tween them; In the fa'ce', a, alongitudinal. groove, a ,is cut WhlOll" in the ertical; PO81 tion of the tile inclines from the face, a, up
ends of the tile have notches cut-into. them extending at one. end from the front face half way in; and at'thef other end from the rear. face half .way into-the tile; Or,- inother made up of 7 two -equal,parallelpipedons' inf which the upper and lower faces 'rneetithe' front and-rear facesatan acuteangle re 'outwar' from sli gh tly above the outer one and with the 5 ends out of register witheach other. 7 ,The'tiles are secured to the wall of a building-byj-rneans of metallic lugs which roject outward from, the" wall at an angle t ereto,
;.= simil ar to.the. an is of the groove, a to the face gfgthe said ugs being made of a width such as to fit the groove, a snu l'y.
1 Fi 1 thejsupportinglugs, ,Tare struck a piece of sheet metal, B, the In s, I), being arranged in aseri'es of horizonta? lines,1the' successive lines being at a distance apart equal to the height of the'tile the lugs; inone row being preferably stagi gered .with the lugs. in the adjacent row.
heet,'B,- m ay be secured tothe' sheathing, c, of the building, or-may be'securedto the up-' rights, 0, thereof After. the sheet, B,'. has been thus secured, the tiles are put upon "the supporting lugs, 12', starting with the lower row first, the operation being simply to push Ithejtilel so .that the lugs, 12, project into the groove, a, the tiles, in one rowfbeing ar ranged so that theends'of one project .over the ends of the: adj acent' .tile. When the tilesiare secured in place, it is seen that the upper. and lower faces-fit into the correspond- 1 ing. faces of thexadjacen't rows, so that the angularityof *the face, together with the steps a yprevent theentrance of moisture to the internal faces of the tile.
Q The method .ofsecurin the tile upon the lu sis the same as that a oredes'cribed.
at I claim is;
1 The combination of a ertical sheet metal wall with metal lugs struck upward at an I angIe-therefrom'and arranged in a series of horizontal 1 lines, [tiles with flat-faces to fit against the metal wall with upwardly in clin'ed slotsjjeir tendin inward from said facesand with their e' ges inclined fromthe said faces downward, the-lower edges of eachrovg fofftiles' fitting-over the upper* edges of thenext lower row of tiles.
