NEW YORK, N. Y., A. CORPORATION QF NEW YORK.

METAL CABINET CONSTRUCTION.

Application iled November 14, 1924, SerialNo. 749,856. Renewed september 21, 1925.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY E. JANES, a

-citizen of the United States, residing in the county of Vestchester, city and State of `New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Metal Cabinet Construction, of whichthe following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part here-` of.

This invention is concerned generally with the construction of cabinets of sheet metal designed for domestic` use and more particularly with the hinging of the swinging'doors of such cabinets. The particular purposes are to 'provide an eificient and satisfactory hinge support, to avoid screw heads on the outersurfa-ce of the cabinets where they are unsightly and generally undesirable, to conceal the hinge members as far as possible within the sheet metal employed in the construction of the cabinets and generally to improve the construction.

, The invention will be described more fully hereinafter` with reference to' the accompanying drawing in which it. is illustrated and in whichf Figuregl is a view in elevation, partly broken out and partly broken away to save space, showing portions of the front wall of a cabinet and of the door, with the hinges in position, portions of the hinge members being shown in broken lines.

Figure 2 is a view in vertical section looking to-ward the left hand in Figure 1.

Figures 3 ande are views in horizontal section on the planes indicated respectively by the broken lines 3 -3 and L7-4 of Figure l. I

Cabinets of the class to which this invention relates are constructed of sheet metal which is bent to give proper shape and stiffness to the structural members. They doors are hollow, being formed of two sheets of metal Joined in proper space relation. In

the drawing there is shown one structural member a which forms apart of the front wall ofthe cabinet and, in its relation to the door, constituteswhat may be called one of the jambs of the door. This member is rabbeted as at a a2, by bending so as to form a recess in which .the ldoor is re ceived so that the outer surface of the door shall be flush with the outer surface of the wall. There are also shown structural inemstructural members a, b and c are not necese sarily completelyclosed, but are usually open toward the inside of the cabinet as indicat ed. The door 0l, however, is hollow, being formed of two members cl and d2 which are flanged at their edges, as at d3, an'd are secured together in parallelism, in proper space relation, so as to form a substantially rigid door. The hinges by which the door is supported in the door opening are preferably of the pin and eye type, each comprising, in theconstruction shown, the pin member e and an eye member f. The arm c which carries the pin and the arm f which forms the eye stand out respectively at right angles from the fastening portions c and f2 respectively. The fastening por. tion c2 of each pin member e is placed between the door-,members d and d2 so as to be completely concealed in the door, the arm e projecting through the outer member d" of the door thro-ugh an opening ai* which is cut in the same. This hinge member, which in this instance 1s shown as having its fasten` ing portion e2 disposed horizontally, is searm f projects through an opening c3 cut in the front wall of the structural member and, in the construction shown, thefastening portion is secured by bolts f3 which pass Lthrough the corresponding structural member and the fastening portion and receive nuts f4, the same being accessiblefrom within the structural member.

The holes in the inner ywall d2 of the door,/ V

through which pass the Vscrews c3, and Vthe holes in the hinge members f, through which pass the bolts f3, may bel slotted longitudinallyto permit fitting of the doei1 to the door opening. I claim as my invention:

1. In a sheet metal cabinet having a dooropening therein having the sheet metal at the head and sill thereof provided with a ledge extending inward at right angles to its outer face and a hollow door for said opening comprising an inner and an outer member secured together in parallelism, hinge members carried by the cabinet each comprising an arm extending outward through the sheet metal and a fastening portion extending along and secured to said inwardly extending ledge, and coacting hinge members carried by the door each comprising an arm extending outward through the outer `member of the door and a fastening member extending along and secured to the inner-face of the back member thereof.

2. In'za sheet metal cabinet having a door opening in -`its wall`with its head and sill each formed of a ledge extending inward atv an angle to the face of the wall and continuous therewith and a hollow sheet metal door for said opening comprisi-ng an inner and outer member secured together in parallelism, hinges for the door each comprising ahinge member carried by the cabinet and a hinge member carried by the door the hinge member carried by the cabinet comprising an arm extending outward through the wall and a fastening member within the wall extending along and secured to the inwardly extending ledge the hinge member carried by the door comprising an arm extendin' outward through the outer member thereo and a fastening member wholly within the space between the outer and inner door member, securing means for the fastening member within such space, and means for pivoting the parts of the respective hinges together.

'3. In a sheet met'al cabinet having a door opening in its wallwit h its head and sill each formed of a ledge extending inward atV an angle to the face of the wall and continuous therewith and a hollow sheet metal door for said opening comprising an inner and outer member secu-red together in parallelism, hinges for the door each comprising a hinge member carried by the cabinet and a hinge member carried by the door'4 the h1n`ge member `Carried by the cabinet comprising an arm extending outward through the wall `and a fasteningmember within the wall extending along and secured to the inwardly extending ledge the hinge member carried by the door comprising an arm extending outward through the outer member thereof and a fastening member` wholly within the space between the `outer and inner door member, securmgmeans for .the fastening member so arranged thatno part thereof extends through the front of the door, and means kfor pivoting the parts of the respeotive'hinges together. y

This specification signed this 13th day of November A. D.- 1924.
