Edge connector for adjoining adjacent concrete structural members
US D619883 S1
I claim the ornamental design for an edge connector for adjoining adjacent concrete structural members, as shown and described.
Cross-reference to related application: Ser. Nos. 29/314,320, 29/314,322, 29/314,323 and 29/313,324.
FIG. 1 is a front view;
FIG. 2 is a side view;
FIG. 3 is a back view; and,
FIG. 4 is an angle view (a perspective view).
In the intended use, the new design permits two edge connector to be placed as weldiment in adjacent concrete structural members (e.g., slabs) and positioned so that the faceplates face each other and can receive a piece of rebar or a plug. Long welds can then made to secure each of the faceplates to the rebar or plug, and to thereby attach the adjacent concrete slabs. There are many unique features in the novel design shown and described herein including, without limitation, (a) a faceplate and two legs attached thereto, all within the same plane, (b) the legs are smooth steel bars extending outwardly from the ends of the faceplate at approximately 45 degrees, and having tips that curve inwardly, (c) the faceplate has a plurality of holes extending through the faceplate from the front to the back, and they are aligned horizontally, and (d) the faceplate has a lip extending outwardly at the bottom of the faceplate.
