C. F. CAPELL AWNING COVERING AND CLOSURE FOR OPENINGS IN WALLS {TOR Filed Feb. 4, 1925' ATTORNEYS.
Patented Dec. 29, 1925.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
CARL F. CAPELL, O1 SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA.
Application fled Febrnary 4, 1925. has No. 6,780.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CARL F. Canaan, a citizen of the United States, residing at Santa Monica, in the county of Los Angeles, State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Awning Coverings and Closures for Openings in Walls, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to an awning coverin and a closure for openings in walls.
whic is formed of strips of metal and the object thereof is to so connect the stri s of metal to each other that they will fol into a smallcompact mass when not in use.
In the drawings forming a part of this application I have illustrated my invent1on as applied to an awnlng and will so describe it, but it is obvious that the awn ng covering is equally well adapted for closlng the opening in a wall, as for illustration a window or an opening in a sleeping porch.
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the upper ortion of a window provided with an awn- -1ng frame equipped with my metal covering. Fig. 2 is an enlarged section on the line 22 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a sectional detail showing a portion of the cover in its partially folded position. Fig. 4 shows a closure for a horizontal opening. Referrlng to the drawings 5 is the easement and 6 the glass of a wmdow of usual construction. Pivotally mounted on frame 6 is a. U-shaped bar 7 to .the cross member of which is attached the lower end of the awning covering. The awning covering consists of strips of metal 8 of any desired width which run transversely of the glass 6 and are used in multiples of two. At suitable distances apart and along the edges thereof these strips are perforated. The lower edge has one row of perforations 9 and the upper edge has two rows of perforations 10 and 11 which are smaller than 9. Strips 8 are connected by wire staples 12 the middle of which is semicircular. These staples are passed through registering perforations 9 and 10 and the other prong passes through perforation 11 and the ends are then clinched down upon strip 8 so that they overlap. Perforations 10 and 11 are of a size to just receive the wire of the staple, while perforations 9 are large enough to permit that edge of the strip to turn on the staple as hereafter explained. The alternate rows of staples from the to toward the bottom project upwardly as s own in Fig.
1. At the side edges of the connected strips I provide upwardly projecting eyes 13 through which pass the operating cables 14. Cables 14 pass through pulley blocks 15 and are secured to a casement hook 16 in the usual manner. Secured to the transverse portion of casement 6 is an anchor ledge 17 of sheet metal which has a double row of perforations in which are received the staples which connect the upper strip 8 thereto. The bottom strip 8 has its lower edge turned angularly to the body ortion and an ornamental edge 18 is secure thereto by the lower line of staples. The lower ends of cables 14 are fastened to the lower eyes 13 and when the awning is to be raised to a position of non-use by pulling on cables 14 the frame 7 swings up against the top of casement 5 and the cover swin to a folded position as partially illustrated in Fig. 3.
When using the device as a closure for a window or other wall opening ledge 17 would be secured to the window easement on the inside and frame 7 would be dispensed with. When using the device as a closure for a horizontal opening a supporting cable 19 would be passed through eyes 13 and frame 7 is omitted, as shown in Fig. 4. By keeping the parts well painted my awning will last indefinitely and always looks well and is fire proof, thus addin to security against fire. In fabricating the covering a half round rod is used to hold the staples on one side while the ends are being clinched.
Having described my invention I claim. 1
1. An awning comprising a U-shaped frame adapted to be pivotally secured to the easement of a window; a ledge adapted to be secured to the top of the easement of a window; a covering comprising a plurality of strips of metal, each strip having a line of perforations along one of its edges and two lines of perforations along the other edge; wire staples connecting said strips of metal by being passed through the single line of erforations of one strip and through the dou 1e line of rforations of an adjacent strip and clinc ed, said strips of metal being used in multiples of two and the lines of staples projecting alternately from opposite sides of the strips, said strips being secured to the ledge at the top and the frame at the bottom by staples, eyes secured to the lower ed es -of the pairs of strips; pulley blocks a apted to be secured to the window 'casement and cables passed through said pulley blocks and eyes and secured to the lower strip.
2. A covering for awnings and closure 5 for wall openings comprising a plurality of strips of metal, each strip havin a single grow of holes along one edge an a double row along the other edge, and means to connect said strips comprising staples having one leg passed through the single line perforations of one edge of one strip and the double line perforations of another strip.
3. A covering for awnings and closure for wall openings comprising a. plurality of strips of metal, each stri having a sin le 1 row of holes along one e ge and a dou le row alon the other edge, and means to connect sai strips comprising staples having one leg passedthrough the single line perforations of one 'edge of one stri and the double line perforations of anot er strip; means to mount said strips and means to operate said strips.
In witness that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto subscribed my name this 25 29th day of January, 1925.
CARL F. CAPELL.
