Specification of Letters Patent. l ateiltd J 12, 1910.
Application filed March 3, 1910; Serial No. 546,996.
To all whom it mayconcem: p
Be it known that I, PAUL KOSAGK, a citizen'of theUnited States, residing at Omaha,- in'the county of Douglas and State of Nebraska, have invented certain newaand use ful ImprovementsinHWall TieS for Buildings,- of whichthe following is a specifica-.'
This invention relates to improvements in wall ties, for use in connection with building-wallconstruction, where comparatively tion ofwall str'ipsor ties-which may be eco- "shown in Fig. 3.
view of a building-wall with ties'thereon.
th1n blocks arefernployed and disposed verticallyedge-to-edge to form the outer and inner parts of the wall, the space between the blocks being filled with cement or other plastic adhesive material.
The invention has reference to the formanomically constructed and will be reliable in use for holding the edges of the oppositely-disposed blocks while the plastic, ad-
hesive material is placed between said blocks, and includes a construction whereby, by reason of the form of the strips, mortar or cement may be dispensed with for filling between the adjacent edges of the blocks, at the time-the blocks are laid, said blocks being laid one upon another without any beddin 'therebetween. I
with these objects in viewthe invention eonsistsof-the novel construction, combination and arrangement ofparts as described herein and claimed, and as illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein,
Figure l is a plan view of an anchor .or strip for usev inconncct-ion with the corners of building-walls. Fig.'2-is'a vertical, side view of the same. Fig. 3 is a plan. View of a strip or t-ie used in connection .withthe side walls. Figs. 4 and 5 are vertical side and end views, res ectively of the wall tie ig. 6 is a persepective constructed in accordance with my. lnven tion, Fig. 7 is a detail relating to Fig. 6 showing a part of a wall in transverse section, and wall ties mounted thereon. Fig. 8
. is a side View of a building block employed.
The herein described wall ties may be constructed to advantage of thin metallic strips having flanges so constructed that they re-' liably engage both the loWerand up or courses of wall blocks.- The ties or strips may be conveniently formed, the plate be-' ing first cnt and incisions made for formbent as will out.
By use of the wall ties, wall-blocks having a very limited thickness may be employed, the same being disposed vertically or edgewise in forming the wall, and held'uniformly spaced apart while a filler of plastic,
adhesive material isdeposited between the outer and inner,wall blocks, the tiesbeing also-embedded in the wall by the filling in'a tc'rial. This'inaterial fills all of the space between the sides and edges of. the plates,
ing the fianges, and the flanges being then be more particularly pointed and in practice no cementorbedding need,
be laid between the adjacent ,ed es of the blocks, the plastic material fil ing these spaces. 1
Referring now to the drawin for a more particular description, numeral 1 indicates outer, and 2the inner wall blocks employed, each having longitudinal grooves orreeesses 3 opening upon its side edges, the thickness of the blocks at their longitudinal ed es being uniform. The blocks are pre erably constructed as thin rectangular plates and maybe formedof cement or othersuitable,
In forming the wall of a building, the
blocks being disposed vertically as mentioned, for holding said blocks at a uniform distance apart, the holders, anchors,.ties ,or wall strips 4 and 5 are employed. The wall anchor l is employed for holding the two adjacent ends of both the outerv and inner wall blocks which form the corners of the wa Anchor: or wallstrip i consists of a fiat, metallic stri having a body or. connecting portion 6 a a ted to be disposed horizontally between t e outer and inner wall plates, and having a head-piece 7 and tail-piece 8 adapted to have seatings, flatwise, upon the upper edges, respectively, of the outerrnd inner wall blocks or plates, which. are dis-.
posed angularly and ad acent in the fprr,

engagement with the'outer and inner sides opposite to each other, and
and inner upwardly-projecting flanges 23 and 24, for engaging the outer and inner sides of the wall blocks of the next or upper course.
It will be seen that the flanges which engage the outer sides of the" blocks have a width notgreater than grooves 3, and when the courses are laid, the space occupied b The downwardly projecting flanges just mentioned are for engagement with the vertwo outer corner blocks upon which the anchor is seated, flanges l0 5.engaging within grooves 3. .The head piece with outer, adjacent, up-
is also rovidcd turned anges l2, and its wings 9 are provided at their terminals, with. upturned anges 13,-said upturned flanges being for the wall maybe filled with cement or similar adhesivematerial, as indicated at-25 in Fi 6, so that the flanges will be embedded or covered, and that the wall may present a more erfect extcrior.
