SELF-COOLING SEAT.

Application inea January s, 1925. serial no. 892.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in selfcooling seats.

The object of the invention is to provide a seat, such as are used as auxiliary seatsin automobiles, equipped with a moisture containing element, thus by evaporation .providing a cool seat.

A further object of the invention is to provide a seat equipped with a filler or core composed either of suitable material for absorbing and becoming saturated with a liquid to a high degree, or of some substance having the property of cooling the air contiguous thereto.

Another object of the invention is to provide a filler for a seat capableof becoming saturated with moisture and arranged so as not to exude moisture when sat upon.

A construction designed to carry out the invention will be hereinafter described together with other features of the' invention.

The invention will be more readily understood from a reading of the following speci fication and by reference to the accompanying drawings, in which an example of the invention is shown, and wherein: v

Fig. 1 is a fragmentar plan view of a ance with my invention,

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view of the seat Fig. 3 is an enlargedcross-sectional view taken on the line 3--3 of Fig. 1,

El 4 is a partial plan view of amodi fied crm of seat,

Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view of the same,

Fig. 6 is a detail of the core,I Y

Fig. 7 is a partial vertical sectional view of another modication,

Fig. 8 is an enlarged detail and f Fig. 9 is a sectional detail of a modified form of seat.

In the drawings the numeral 10 designates a moisture exuding unit, which -in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, is illustrated as formed of a perforated bottom sheet or plate 11 and a complementary upper perforated plate 12. It is to be understood that these sheets or plates are formed of metal or other material suitable for the purpose and may be perf forated in any approved manner; also that any foraminous sheet of plate suitable `for the purpose, may be used. I have shownthe of the same, p

ing the felt core 27.

plates with narrow panels or strips 13 interl secting at right angles and imperforate.

The plates are spaced apart and connected by short vertical posts 14 located at logicalpoints and made integral with the plates. A filling or core 15 of felt or other moisture absorbing material is placed ybetween the plates. A pad 16 of loose mesh material, such as matting, is placed upon the top plate 12. The unit and pad are enclosed in an open mesh casing 17 of fabric, having a flap 18 along one edge secured by snap fasteners 19.

Two of the members are united by a fabric hinge 20, one forming a seat and the other a back rest. The seat may be placed on the cushion of an automobile seat and the back member inclined against the back cushion.

The Hap 18 is opened and the core 15 is saturated with water or any other cooling liquid. The air which passes through core and pad 16 and contiguous to the unit,=will be cooled by the evaporation of the moisture. In this way cool air will be circulated about the trunk of the body of the driver. The up and down movement of the unit, due to the springs of the cushion and the motion of the car, will tend to force air through the unit. It is possible to build the unit into the automobile seat.

In Figs. 4, 5 and 6, I have shown a modified form in which the unit 10 is formed of a coil spring 21 wound in' a spiral and filled with a core 22 of felt or other moisture absorbing material. The same pad 16 and casingy 17 are used. This form is more flexible.

n Figs. 7 and 8, I. have shown another f form in which the unit 10n is formed of a bottom plate 23 Vwhich is imperforate and has upright sides 24. The sides are provided with perforations or openings 25 which may be covered with wire fabric or the like 26. The bottoml and sides forma pan for hold- Excess water cannot leak through the bottom of the pan. Air will enter through the openings *25. The casing 17, kpad 16 and upper plate 12 are used 1n this form.

In Fig. 9v I have illustrated another form in which the unit 10 is placed under a cushion. The felt 15 is provided with perforations 15. A cushion composed of a casing 30 and atilling 31 is placed over the unit. The cushion has eyelets 32 therein instead of the usual buttons. The air is free to pass n up throughthe unit and through the eyelets.

Various changes in the size and shape of the different parts, as Well as modifications and alterations may be made within the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim is:

l. In a self-cooling seat, a unit having a core for retaining and evaporating moisture extended over substantially the area of the seat, a protective surface pad covering said core, and a fabric casing enclosing the unit and pad.

2. Ina self-cooling seat, a unit extended over substantially the area of the seat and containing an absorbent medium for cooling the air contiguous thereto by evaporation of a liquid retained thereby, a protective suring enclosing the unit, and a pad in the casi ing covering the unit.

4. In a self-cooling seat, a relatively horizontally disposed metallic unit of substantially the areaof the seat, a core in the unit composed of moisture absorbing material, a pad resting on the unit, and a fabric casing enclosing the unit and the pad.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
