. ROLLING-WINDOW-S CREEN STRUCTURE.

Application med August 16, 1926.' Serial No. 129,568.

The object of my invention is to provide a rolling window screen structure of very simple and inexpensive construction.

In the manufacture and sale of rolling window screens of the type in which the screen is wound on a roller'in a casing and is adapted to be withdrawn from and wound up into the casing, many dilicult problems arise in connection with the installation of the screens in various kinds of window frames and casings.

At the present time, there is a great deal of building construction done in which it is the desire to avoid as far as possible the use of wood. In many instances, steel window sash and frames therefore are used in brick and plastic material buildings with a minimum use of wood. Frequently in such structures, the plaster is applied to the brick Welland finished around the window opening right up to the steel frame. The steel window sash are frequently hinged to the frame to swing outwardly and it is then necessary to install the screens so that they will be on the inside of the Windows.

Where there is no Wooden casing, such an lnstallation involves a number of difficulties.'

It is my purpose to provide a rolling Winpeculiarly adapted for use where there is no wooden frame.

It is my object in this connection to provide a casing for the rolling Window screen, which for convenience and in order to correspond in terminology to the phrasing and names used in my co-pending application, Serial No. 29,960, l will call a box.

My device is intended for use with screens having enlarged portions at their ed es, and I provide the box together with gui es havingv slotted tubular portions adapted to receive the side edges of the screen.

It is m purpose to provide also channel-shape receiving members or ide holders adapted to be mounted in t e plastering or plastic finish when the same is applied, and to later detachably receive the guides to hold them by frictional engagement.

V.Another object is to 1provide in connec tion with such guide ho ding members and rolling screen box, members to receiveV the ends of the box and members for supporte ving the ends of the box filed Mayy 13, 1925,`

in the holding member and adapted to be ,finished by painting or otherwise in the same manner as is the plaster.

With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in. the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of my rolling window screen structure, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more full set forth, pointed out in my claims, and il ustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a fiont elevation of a portion of a building `having a Window opening equipped with a rolling window screen structure embodying my invention, the lower parts of the window being omitted.

Figure 2 is a detail, sectional view taken on the line 2`2 of Figure l. v

Figure 3 is a detail, sectional view taken on the line 3 3 of Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on the line 1 -4 of Figure 2. n

Figure 5 is a detail, sectional view taken on the'line 5 5 of Figure 2.

Figure 6 is a perspective view of the parts of 'my rolling screen structure, portions thereof bein omitted; an

Figure 7 is a sectional view of the guide holder, the view being somewhat enlarged .and intended to illustrate the construction of the holder for aording the fricticnal grip of the guide and the spread at the mouth of the holder. p

In the accompanying drawings, l have used the 'reference numeral 10 to indicate generally the wall in which is provided a Window opening ll. I have shown my de vice installed in an opening having the steel window structure, including the metal frame 12 and the sash 13 hinged thereto.

At the upper part of the Window openn ing, there is provided in the wall 'a suitable recess 14 to Ireceive the rolling window screen box 15. This box is the casing for the roller mechanism on which the screen 16' is wound. The box has the slot or lon gitudinal opening 17 through which screen -is drawn outy'In connection with this rolling screen, use guides, each comprising a tubular por` broken away and parts being tion 18 with the slotted `1n downwardly t throat 19 at one side and with projecting flanges 20 at the 'other side. These flanges are preferably spot-welded together, so as t`o make each guide a unit. t

The tubularpor'tionlS terminates short of the upper ends of the BaugesI 20, as clearly shown in Figuresv 1 and 6. For holding the guides, I provide channel-shaped members." These members comprise an angle 21 and an angle 22 -arranged with flanges slightly spaced from each other and slightly con, Verging'toward their edges where they diverge, as shown in Figure 7, and with` their other anges lyin in the same plane. One of the angles is su stantially longer than Athe other, and the anges which lie inthe same plane, which are indicated at 21 and 21b rest against astrip 23 to which they are spotwelded or otherwise secured.

The strip 23 extends to the upper end of the langle 22 .and ysubstantially above the angle 21. The upper portion of the strip 23 an the'upper end ofthe angle 22 form parts V of a frame for receiving the upper end of the box 15 and the box 24 hereinafter more fully described.

The frame has also the angle side member 25 and angle top and bottom members 26 and 27 suitably connected together to make a rectangular receiving or holding member. for the ends of the box. The ends of the box 15 are intended to be received in the u per portion of this holding member, whic is' indicated generally b the referencev character A, thus leaving elow the box when it is installed, a substantial space enclosed by the angles 22, 25', 26 and 27 and the strip 23, which forni side walls.

When the building is completed, this box holding member A and the channel-shaped uides formed as art-thereof and projecterefrom are placed ina window openingand the plaster 28 is put in the flanges 21a. and 21,.as shown in Figure 5, substantially ilushwith the outer edges ofthe angles 21 and 22 and i ,the an le 27.

angles 21 and 22 maybe I In t e installat-ion,-the spiace between the led with astewhich is intended to reboard or the like, j

comes to install the moved when the time guides. Assumingthat the box hol 'ng member A and lthe channel receiving gui es, which have indicated generally by the reference character have been installed during the plastering of the building, then when the time arrives to install the screen box and guides, the box is laced in position with its ends received in le upper portions of the holder A.

.It will be understood that the building is provided at the top of the window opening with a suitable recess to receive the rolling /gui'descan then I provide a channel-shaped supportv 29, the y side flanges of which are then inserted'into the holder A vwith the support 29 just below the box 15 and with'its lower end resting on the angle 27 and with its outer face lush with the outer edges of the angles 25 and 22.

Theouter face of the support 29 can then be painted over inthe same manner as the walls. The projecting portions of the guides are similarly painted.

v The guides are held in place for rictional engagement by the angles 21 and 22.

Inl buildings of the 'kind mentioned, itis quite diliicult to install the rolling window screens insuch a way ,that they can be readily removed. This problem I have solved by the present structure.

If itisl desired to remove one of the boxes 15 for any' reason as for instance to repair the screen or roller, a-knife or the like is inserted between the support 29 and the lian 27 and the sup ort 29 is pulled out. T e

e pulled out of their receiving members. Thereafter, the box can be slipped downwardly' in the box holding mem. ber A with one end lower than the other end, of the box, whereupon the box may be re-v moved.

The lower surface of the box may be also painted in the same way that the wall has een painted, so that when theentire device is installed only the tubular portions18 of the guidesproject from posed surfaces of the screen structureare iinished in the same way as the walls, so-that only a small partofthe screen structure is visible and part of thatexposed structure has the same nish as the walls.'

I have thusprovided a screen structure, which can be conveniently installed in connection with plastic, brick or concrete walls in such a wa as to detract to a minimum extent from t e appearance of `the structure and yet. to permit the easy completion of the installationl of the' rolling window screen` and the uick and easy removal of the guides an boxes. l

It will be understood that the guides are I located below the slot 17, so that when the A.parts are installed andthe screen 16 is the side edges will'be pulled downwardly,

as shown `in Figures received in the guides,V 1 and 5.

The holders hold the are sligh flared as shown in Figure 7 to facilitate lnsertion of the guides.

Changesl may be made in the details of the construction and arrangement of the B will frictionallygrip and guides and their receiving mouthst Y SNI the walls and all exparts of my improved rolling window screen structure without departing from the purposes and scope of my invention, and it is my intention to cover by my claims, any such changes as may be reasonably included within their scope.
