Description

Dec. 11,1923. 1,476,853 W. B. TABOR FENCE CONSTRUCTION Filed May 13, 1920 WWI J55 I N VEN TOR.
ATTORNEY.
Patented Dec. 11, 1923.
-, UNITED STATES WILLIAM B. T mon, or new nouerins, ILLINOIS.
FENCE CONSTRUCTION.
Application filed May 13, 1920. Serial No. 381,059,
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM B. TABOR,
a citizen of the United States, residing at New Douglas, in the county of Madison and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fence Constructions, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in fence constructions, the primary object of the invention being to provide means to prevent animals from burrowing thereunder.
Another object of the invention is to provide a fence construction including means for reinforcing the same.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device of the above character which is strong, durable, inexpensive to manufacture and highly efiicient in practice.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying drawings forming a part of the application and wherein like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the several views.
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical transverse section through the same, taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1, and
Figure 3 is a section taken on line 3--3 of Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of the invention, the numeral 4: designates in general an enclosure means, in. the present instance consisting of a wire fence fabric. This fabric is made up in the present instance of in terlaced crossed wires, the horizontal wires of which being designated by the numeral 5 while the vertical wires are designated by the numeral 6. This wire fence fabric is stapled to fence posts 7 in the manner well understood and the selvage edge of the wire fence fabric is disposed in close proximity to the ground.
The means I employ for preventing animals from burrowing under the fence consists of a pair of strips 8 preferably constructed from wire fabric and are spread upon the ground upon opposite sides of the fence to extend longitudinally therewith. The selvaged edges of the strips which are remotefrom the fence are secured to the ground by fastening elements 9 of any desired type. As more clearly shown in Figure 3 of the drawing, the inner end of the cross wires 10 of the strips, or the ends of the cross wires adjacent the fence are hooked as at 11 around and secured to the selvaged lower edge of the wire fence fabric. It is of course to be understood that the edges of the strips remote from the fence are arranged sufficiently far back from the fence so as to prevent animals from burrowing anywhere adjacent to the fence.
Thin metal plates 12 are adapted to be associated with the wire fence fabric in order to reinforce the same. These thin metal strips extend longitudinally of the wire fence fabric and each strip along its longitudinal edge is provided with a plurality of spaced apertures 13. The apertures in the lower edge of each strip are adapted to receive the hooked portions 14 of the cross wires forming a part of the wire fence fabric, and are adapted to receive the hooked ends 6 of alternate cross wires forming a part of the wire fence fabric 4.. The apertures in the opposite edges of the plates are adapted to be associated with lap rings 15 or loops which are carried by a longitudinally extending wire 16 fixed to the posts abov the fence. The trans verse edges of each strip are also provided with apertures to receive nails or other suitable fastening elements 17 which are driven into the post for rigidly securing the strips thereto.
From the foregoing it will be appreciated that animals capable of climbing wire fabric fences will be prevented from climbing over a fence constructed in accordance with the foregoing description, inasmuch as when the animals approach the top of the fence by crawling up the wire fabric, their claws will engage the smooth strips 12 and consequently will be unable to obtain a grip thereon to climb further up the fence. As set forth above, it will also be apparent that the animals accustomed to burrowing adjacent the fence will be prevented from doing so by strips of wire fabric being spread upon the ground.
The foregoing description and the draw ing has reference to the preferred or approved embodiment of my invention. it is to be understood however, that I may make such changes in construction and operation Qil of materials, parts, dimensions, etc., as may prove expedient and fall within the "scope of the appended claim. V
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patents is r The combination with an ordinary fence, of anti-burrowing means comprising strips of wirefabric spread upon the surface of the ground at the base of the fence and upon opposite sides thereoflthe cross wires of'said strips of wire fabric being formed at their inner ends with bent over portions, said bent over portions forming hooks for detachably connecting said strips of wire 16 fabricto the fence, the outer edges of said strips being anchored to the ground.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
' WILLIAM B. TABOR.
