Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented .Tuly 28, 1908.
Appiicanon sied november 29, i907. sensi No, 404,247,
To all whom 'it may concern.' Bei knownthat l, RICHARD W. Jnrrnnis, acitizen of the'United States, residing at Merchantville, in thecounty oi Camden and StateA of New vJersey, have invented certain new and useful lmprovements in Lockertion.
invention relates todoor construction especially adapted to be used on lockers, and on my improved. locker on which l am about to apply for a patent, the object beingto provide a screen door which is exceedingly simple and cheap in'construction and one which when assemblwd W )e very strong and en! durable. Y
Another object of my invention is to pro-A vide the side'bars ofthe door frame with lo'ngitudinal sockets, one bar being a right angle bar and the other 'a compound angle bar which enables the expanded metal screen to be secu-ind rigidly within the sockets.
Another .object of my invention is to torni the upper and lower cross barsi'out of angle*v :bars over which t `b 'upper and lower edges of the expanded metal is `adapted to extend, the same being secured thereto by dat bars through. the same.
lwhich are secured to the angle bars by rivets.
A further objectof my invention is to provide one of the side bars 'of the frame of 'the .door with an outwardlyprojecting portion adapted to extend over one of the side bars of the door casing when mounted therein, so as to cover the jamb and prevent the door from being pried open' with an instrument,
These objects are attained by the`novel arrangement and construction of parts hereinafter fully described and shown in theaccompanying drawings, in which,
Figure l, is a plan view of a portion of my improved door. Fig. 2, is a vertical section Fig. 3, is a horizontal section through my improved door,v and, Fig. 4, is a detailed horizontal section showing a inodiiied form of e compound angle bar Referring to the drawings A and B, indicate thetwo side bars of my improved door, and C, the cross bers connecting the said bars toeether forming the frame of the door. The si e bar A, is a right angle double bent bar, the two outwardly projecting parallel portions of which are contracted and the other two parallel bars being spaced apart, for the l urpose hereinafter described. The side bar gis a compound angle double bent bar having two bends, the outwardly projectingp n-- tions being contracted and the parallel end portions. being spaced apart between which the Side edgeoic the expanded metal screen D, isadapted to be secured by rivets passing` through 'the tspeccl'd, parallell portions, the othersidc edge ol" the expanded metal screen iittingbetween the sp'c'ed I"parallel portions of' the bar A, and is secured therein in a similar manner. The bars C, are right. anglo bars, the vertical flanges oi lwhich extend over the bars A and B, at their ends and over the upper and lower edges of the expanded metal screen l). The screen being secured to these bars by llat bars E, which arc irraiigcd on the rear tace of the expanded nieta 'hnd are connected to the bars 0 by rivets which securely lock tbe upper and lower edges ol theexpandcd metal and spaced portions, and at the same time forms a rigid door. Itvwill be seen that the hars E, shorter than the barsC, and when assembled will 4lit between the bars A and B, so that a tightoin't will be formed. A
In the modification shown in. Fig. 4, have shown a compound angle side bnr F, formed of a right angle bar F', and ol" a compound angle ber F2, which areconnectcd together by rivets F3. This construction greatly reduces the cost of manufacturing the double bent here, it, of course, being understood that a socket is formed in this bar in a similar way.
From the foregoing description it can be seen that I have formed a door so constructed that it can be shipped ready to be installed, the parts being so arranged that n very rigid door is formed and one in which the expanded mete-l screen will be securely looked therein, whereby it will be impossible 'for same to become loose or be pried open with an instrument without breaking anic. Having thus described luy/invention what l claim as nenT end desire to secure by Letters .Patent is; K
l, door comprising a right angle side bar, and a compound angle side bar connested together at their ends by angle bars and van expanded metal screen secured to said bars.
2. A door Atraine'comprisiuig angleside bars and cross bars, one side bar being a right angle bar and the other a compouinl angle bar.
3. A door jframe comprising angle side bars, and cross bars, one side form longitudinal sockets.
4. A door comprising an angle side bar and a compound angle lside bar connected together at their ends by bars, seid bars bein@r provided with sockets and an expande metalI screen secured in said sockets.
5. A door com rising double bent angle bars forminor the side bars of the door frame, the outwardly projecting portion being oontraoted andthe parallel end portion spaced a art, one side bar being en angle bar and t e other a'compound angle bar, angle bers connecting said bars and alreticuleted enel secured between the spaced parallel enfportions of the side bars, and Het bars for secur-v ing said enel to the cross heirs,v
6. A oor comprising double bent angle side bars, and engle cross bars, one side ber being a right angle bar and the other a oompound angle bar, said bers having longitudinel'soeket's formed therein and en expanded metal screen secured in said sockets and bars secured to the rear of the cross bars over the.
edge of the expanded nietztl screen.
In testimony whereof' I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of-
