Application flied June s, 1921. `seal-1ro. 475,875.

State of Illinois, have invented certain newV and useful Improvements in lSliding Con` vertible Beds, of which the following is a` specification. I

This invention relates to beds, an object thereof being to provide a three-section sliding convertible bed comp-rising a main bed frame and a pair of sliding bed sections shiftable relatively thereto to form a full alength bed transverse of the length of the individual sections.

A further. object is to provide a three! section sliding convertible bed wherein one of the sliding sections has a non-closed .compartment formed from the framework thereof for .the reception of a mattress, the construction being such as to provide a convertible bed of this type, 4which will be efficient, cheap, durable and practicable in constructlon.

A further object of this invention is to provide a bed of the sliding convertible type,

one of the sliding sections thereof having a mattress compartment formed as a part of the framework, and located as nearas possible to the top lof Athe mattress, a' portion of the mattress being constructed to swing rearwardly thereby to permit access to the compartment for the removal of the mattress, and a main section providedwith a sliding compartment shiftable at right angles to they movement of the mattress compartment.

Thus the construction is such as to result in a cheap, durable and serviceable bed structure adapted for a variety of purposes and at the same time combining utility, convenience `and effectiveness. r.

Other objects of this invention 'will appear in the following description" thereof, reference being had`to thev accompanying drawings forming apart of this specification, wherein like reference characters indi-v cate corresponding parts lin the several views, and wherein Fig. l is a perspective View of one embodiment of `my improved bed structure; Fig. 2 is a perspective view of another embodiment thereof; Fig. 3 is a perspec-l tive view of a further embodiment thereof, Fig. 4: is a perspectiveview lof the structure illustrated in F ig, 3 showing the-mattresses removedand the sliding receptacle 1n its open position; Fig; 5 is a side elevation Specification of :Letters atent. )Pajelnll-,qgd App, 25, i922" partly in section illustrating the embodiment of Fig. l; Fig.v 6 is a side elevation partly in section illustrating the embodiment of Fig. 2; and Fig. 7 is a side elevation of the embodiment illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4.

` The present improved bed structure comprises in general a main bed section A, an. intermediate sliding section B carried thereby'and shftablel relatively thereto, an outer sliding section IC carried by the .intermediate slidingvsection and shiftable relatively thereto, and a sliding storage receptacle carried by the side or tie bars of the main section and shiftable beneath the sliding sections and at right angles to the movement thereof.

It has been found in p-racticethat vwhen the bed4 isin its closed position, itis impracticable to use a single mattress foldable twice upon the main section. The disadvantage of this resides in the fact that the dayl bed thus formed,-havin'g three layers o'fmat-l tress, is too high-from the floor forpractical use, hence it isnecessary to provide-suitable storage space for the mattress'of the third` sliding section, but `at the same time .to provide as cheap and veflicient a construction as possible. In the present instance therefore, the outer sliding section is provided -witha compartment formed largely from the frame work of the section and a" portion of the spring mattress is hinged to swingrear- -wardly and permit -laccess to the compart ment.` Thus, as it'will be seen, this compartment is inexpenslvely formed from the. framework, thus obviating any unnecessary or material modification or reorganization ofthe bed, is conveniently locatednear the top of the bed, and` is so constructed as to provideydesirable ventilation for themattress."

j The main and slidingsectio'ns of im# y proved sliding r'convertible bed may of l course be of any prefered vconstructionf' in the present instance the same beinglillus-y 'trated by way'of example. This bed corn prisesva main bed section A having frames l-0 provided'with the usual supporting legs 1l and ametallic or spring fabric 12 stretched between the end frames. Anv intermediate' sliding 'bed section B lis supported or carried-bythe mainbed section and comprises end frames 13 having stretched betwen the same a suitable metallic or spring mattress 14. The end frames 13 are provided at one side with supporting legs 15 and at the opposite side with a pair of depending members 16. Side, cross, or spacing bars 18, preferably of angle iron construction,l are connected to the legs 11 at a suitable distancebelow the spring mattress 12 and end spacing bars 17 also of angle iron construction, are connected thereto and to the legs 11, and the horizontal flanges thereof are adapted to form tracks or ways for the depending members 16 of the intermediate section, 'thereby supporting thesame for shiftablemovement.

An outer sliding section C is carriedyby the intermediate section and is adapted to have a shiftable movement relatively thereto. This section comprises end frames 19 having at the outer side thereof depending members 22 and at the inner side thereof depending members 21. Side spacing bars 29, preferably of angle iron construction,

are connected to the depending members 21I and 22, and supporting legs 23 are connected to theouter side bar 29 and depending members 22, braces 22n being provided for the purposes of stability and rigidity. rlthe intermediate section y B is provided with side spacing bars 24a and connected thereto at the ends are cross bars 24 preferablyof angle iron construction. The horizontal flanges of the end bars 24 are adapted .to form ways or tracks for the depending members 21, the outer section thereby having a shiftable movement relatively to the intermediate section and between the end.

bars 24 and the mattress fabric 14.

In order to provider convenient and accessible storage space for the mattress of the outer' sliding section spacing members 25 preferably in the form of slats, are con-V bars are pivoted as at 28 to the end frames 19, preferably intermediate the ends and at the inner sides thereof. Connected-in any suitable manner to the membersA 27 is a tie y bar 28a and aside rail 45. i Thus this portion of the mattress fabric 20 of the outer sliding section may be elevated as illustrated in dotted lines in Fig. 7,merelylby grasping the siderail 45 and-swinging the mattress framework.

Misses rearwardly on the pivots 28, and as a result access is permitted to the mattress compartment 26 for insertion or removal of the mattress.

As illustrated in Figs. 1 and 5, the main bed section A comprises a housing framework 30, and a suitable back and arms 31 and 32 respectively formed las part of the A part of the framework 33 forming a front board `is connected in any suitable manner to the outer sliding section, and is adapted, upon shifting the sections to their closed and housed position within the framework, to form an ornamental closure for the front of the framework.

The type of bed structure illustrated in Figs. 2 and 6 comprises a main bed section A having ornamental end frames 34 and 35, the construction otherwise being substantially the same as hereinbefore described.

In order that the intermediate section B and the outer section C may be shifted simultaneously from their position within the housing framework of the main section A suitable automatic locking means is provided to lock the sections together. Thus in opening the-bed structure, sections B and C will be vshifted as `a unit to the full open position of the intermediate section B; thereupon the locking means may be released and the section C shifted to its open position independently of the section B.

Hence, the outer and intermediate sections,

as desired for the particular use of the bed, are constructed to slide together when desired, thus facilitating the operation of the parts. This locking means comprises a suitable locking spring '36 attached at 37 to the top rails 13 of the section B and having a lug projecting through an opening inthe rail and adapted upon closing the sections B and C togetherl to project into an opening or detent 38 formed in the end rails 19 of the section C. The sections are disengaged by pulling the spring outward to withdraw the lugs from the notches or detent 38. j

A suitable stued mattress 40 for the sec'- tions A and B is provided, and a stuHed mattress 41 is' also providedfor the outer sliding section C.- Thus, when the bed is used as a day bed, the mattress 41 will be such compartment having substantially the same length as the .length of the section, thereby to readilyhouse the mattress therein.-

.housed within the open compartment 26, I

Suitable tie lbars 46, 47, and 48.are connected to the supported legs of the various sections. .Referring to Figs. 5 to -7 inclusive, it will be seen that .the tie bars 48 are of angle iron construction and the horizontalV flanges 49 are adapted `to form supporting ways or tracks for the storage receptacle 50,

the same being located beneath the ways or tracks 17 and hence beneath the compartment 26 in the closed positionA of the sections. The supporting -legs are provided.

with suitable rollers 33a to facilitate movement of the sections and the compartment 26 is' provided with end bars or slats 51 to prevent endwise movement of themattress valso be seenV thatthe'sliding compartment 50 -and the compartment 26 in the closed position of the bed are located one above the other, one having a shiftable movement at right angles to the movement of the other. As already seen, the compartment 26 is provided with means for permittingaccess to the interior thereof for '-the removal'of the mattress, which means comprises a hinged mattress fabric adapted to be swung upwardly and Irearwardly relative to the remainder of the mattress.

lt will be particularly seen therefore that as the result of the improved construction, wherein a main section and apair of sliding sections are provided, each sliding section being shiftable between the side bars and the mattress fabric of a companion section, a full length bed adapted to be slept upon transverse of the length of the individual sections is provided.. Hence, the necessity of constructing the main section of sufficient length to be slept upon in the direction of its length is. eliminated, asfin the case of two-section beds of this type heretofore constructed and the main section may be constructed of any length desired (see Fig. 2)

without in the least impairing Yits utility or 4 -use as a fulllength bed as upon converting or openingv the bed the-.combined width of the three sections is sufficient to enable the same to be comfortably slept upon transverseof the sections or inv other words, in the directionof the width or shiftablevmovement of the individual sections.

Although I have described myinvention in its preferred form, it is to be understood that I do not'limit'myself to the construc- -tion`herein shown and described,v except in so far as defined in the claims and embraced Within the-'scope thereof.
