UNITED STATES PATENT @FFIQE.

STANY SKOWRONSKI AND WILLIAM J. PARKS, OF LA SALLE, ILLINOIS.

DOOR-MAT.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, STANY SKOWRONSKT, a subject of the Emperor of Germany, and VVILLIAM J. PARKS, a citizen of the United States, both residents of the city and county of La Salle, State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Door-Mat, of which the following is a specification.

Our invention relates to improvements in door-mats, and the object that we have in view is to provide an improved construction in which is combined a metallic scrapingsurface, and a fibrous wiping-surface, the whole connected together and arranged in substantially the same horizontal plane, forming a continuous scraping and wiping surface.

A further ob ect is to provide an improved metallic mat pressed out of a single sheet of metal; and to provide a form of device that can be cheaply made and suitably shaped as a metallic scraping-surface.

A further object is to provide an improved mat in which the fibrous wiping portion may be unhooked or detached when worn, replaced by a new frame of cocoa matting or brush, by means of hooking same onto the metallic scraping section and thus held in place.

Vith these ends in view, the invention consists of the construction and arrangement of the parts thereof as will be more fully hereinafter described and claimed.

Referring to the drawings: Figure 1 is a top view of a door-mat constructed in accordance with our invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the mat illustrated by Fig. 1.

Similar letters refer to similar parts throughout both views.

In carrying our invention into practice we provide marginal frame a, which is common to both the metallic scraping-surface and the fibrous wiping-surface forming elements of our improved door-mat for the purpose of enabling a person to thoroughly clean and remove dirt and mud from the soles of boots and shoes before entering a dwelling or building. The marginal frame a may consist of a strong piece of sheet metal of any suitable dimensions and having its edges reverted and its ends secured together in a substantial manner. The ends of the said sheet metal being reverted inwardly from the frame a and serve to con- Specification of Letters Patent.

fine the fibrous or wiping-surface within the marginal frame, and in same horizontal plane as the metallic scraping-surface of the mat. Attached to this marginal frame we provide a substantial metal plate (Z, tongued and burred forming a metallic scraping-surface. Adjacent to one end of this metal plate, we provide connecting hooks c c c and form means of attaching frame of the fibrous wiping-surface to said metallic scraping portion.

The metallic scraping-surface of the mat is formed by a plurality of the burred tongues e, which are pressed out of the iron plate, and between the attaching hooks and cleaner-plate f thereof. These burred tongues c are positioned in the plate d to present their edges to view and thereby form an eflicient scraping-surface, the tongues which form the scraping-surface of the mat being tongued out of the metallic plate and take up the major portion of the area of the metallic section of mat, the ends being free permit a certain amount of spring movement or play, which provides a suitable scraping-surface on the mat.

The fibrous wiping-surface is indicated by the letter Z), and it may consist of a section of cocoa matting or a suitable brush material. This fibrous surface 7) is adjust ed within the reverted marginal frame a to completely occupy the area of said frame, and with the edges of said fibrous-surface c engages the reverted edges of frame a, that serve to confine the fibrous-surface securely in place within said frame. hen the fibrous wiping-surface becomes worn, it may be detached from the hooks holding same in place, reversed and replaced, presenting a new wiping-surface to view. \Vhen both fibrous wiping-surfaces become worn, the marginal frame a containing the fibrous material Z2 may be readily detached from the metallic scraping portion, to be replaced by a new frame of matting or brush.

At one end of the mat, preferably the end opposite from the wiping-surface 7), weprovide a cleaner-plate f. The cleanerplate f is tongued and burred in the manufacture thereof by the same operation as the tongues e, permitting of a rapid and cheap method of manufacture.

We are aware that prior to our i nvention door-mats have been made with metallic Within said frame and means for detachably 10 connecting sald boundary frame with said scraplng surface.
