TILE 0R ANALOGQUS SIMULATION.

Application led November 29, 1926. Serial No. 151,541.

The invention'is a new and improved wall or ceiling covering in the nature of a tile or other simulation, which may be manufactured in numerous finishes to represent enameled tile, ceramic tile, unglazed tile, enameled or unglazed brick, marble, stone, terra cotta, mosaic, etc.

The principal objects of the invention are to provide a covering which may either' be used iii' new construction or may be applied over existing walls, ceilings or other work; to make novel provision whereby grooves which outline the tile or other simulations, may be pointed up with plaster of Paris, Keene cement, Portland cement, or any other cement or plastic material suitable for the purpose, thus giving an excellent representation of tile work and mortar joints; to provide a tile simulation which maybe made either rigid or flexible, according to the use to which it is to be put, the flexible feature making the product adaptable for use around columns, curved surfaces, rounded corners, etc.; to provide such a simulation with a1 rear side' having a texture permitting the use of cement for securing such simulation against ia fiat surface, so that after hardening of thecement, there is no dangerof any loosening or puckering; to provide a simulation in sheet form and of such nature that it may readily be cut by hand and fit-- ted at the place where it is to be used, into desired sizes and shapes; to provide a simulation which need not be over one-eighth or` three-sixteenth of an inch in thickness, making it'possible to apply the covering on existingwork, without ener-caching too much upon the existing trimA or woodwork, and to provide a tile simulation which, While rather simple and inexpensive, and easy to manufacture and apply, will be durable, artistic and in every way desirable.'

With the foregoing in view, the invention resides in the novel subject matter hereinafter described and claimed, the description being supplemented by the accompanying drawings.

Fig. l is a small `:front elevation of a por-l tion of a tile simulation constructed in accordance with the invention, said simulation being in the form in which it is placed Aon` sale, that is, with the grooves empty.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary front elevation of a portion of the simulation in the same state as `shown in Fig. 1.

the present invention.

Fig. 3 isa detail sectional view on line 3-3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a fragmentary elevation of a portion of the simulation used as wanscoating and illustrating it in connection with a wainscoat cap, tie grooves in the simulation when installed, being filled with pointing material, as indicated in this. view.

Fig. 5 is a detail section on line 5-5 of Fig. 4.

In construct-ing the invention, I make use of a sheet 6 of any desired material or materials and proportions, but preferably of a thickness varying from one-eighth to threesixteenths of an inch, according to the use for which the simulation is designed. For this sheet, rubber, asbestos and cement, asbestos and magnesia, compositions such as linoleum or other desired materials, may

. be used.

The sheet is intended to be secured in place by suitable viscous cement and to insure that the cement shall properly adhere to thesheet, I provide the rear side of this sheet with a texture to which the cement will readily stick. This may Well be accomplished by embedding closely Woven fibrous fabric in the rear'portion of the sheet with all or some of the Woof -and warp exposed at the rear surface. SuchA fabric is indicated at 7 in Figs. 3 and 5 and when linoleum is used in the manufacture of the invention, this fabric is of course an integral part of the linoleum sheet as purchased from the factory, to be vused for the production of If other materials are to be used. a sheet ofthe fabric 7 may be covered with a layer of any desired plastic material which, when hardened, will possess the desired characteristics. This material of course permeates into the weave of the fabric 7 so` that a unitary sheet is prpduced, having a fabric-impregnated rear s1 e.

In the front side of the sheet, I form ay plurality of angularly or otherwise related grooves 8, and the portions 9 of said front,

between the grooves, are finished (by coating or in any other suitable way) to simulate tile. This ininishing is accomplished in the over the surfaces of the grooves 8, as desired. Such a coating is illustratedat l0 in-Figs. 3 110 and 5, and it will be understood that when ysuch a coating is used, it may be sprayed on or otherwise applid in shades or combinations of shades, or stippled, or mottled, etc., so as to produce tile effects of infinite varieties.

After the tile simulation is cemented in4 place and held until the cement has set, the grooves 8 are filled with any desired plastic, pointing material, such as those hereinbefore enumerated. Thus, the appearance Vis given of an excellent gradeoof tile, well laid' and secured by mortar joints. An idea of the appearance of the finished work, is given in Fig. 4. In this view, the simulation has been used for wainscoating, anda wainscoat cap 12 is shown in connection with it. Such. a.cap 'base finishes, trim, etc., may be provided,

constructed in a fashion similar to the tile simulation herein described.` In Figs. 4 and 5, the pointing material, simulating mortar joints, is denoted at 11.

By making use of the construction herein disc osed, or an equivalent construction, a product is provided possessing great com mercial merit, and on account of the advantages existing from the details herein disclosed, they are preferably followed.

ing sense, as numerous other formations could well be simulated with the invention.

The grooves may be made by groove cutters where the tile or other design is simple, or in either simple or intricate designsand patterns, grooving may be accomplished by stampin 'or indenting the sheet under pres'.

sure be ore hardening of the material' of which it is formed, takes place, or by the so-called .stencilling process;

In the application of this invention, the sheets 6, or other shapes, are cemented'in positions adjacent to each other, leaving a space between them the same size as the' the wall, or vceiling to keep the material in place until the cement has set up; If this is done, the nails or brads would e .driven to the bottoms of the grooves and the pointing material applied in the usual cealing the nails.

I claimz l. A wall covering comprising a sheet of pliable nature throughout its thickness, the front side of said sheet beingr provided with open receiving and retaining grooves for a plastic pointing material, and with a plurality of independent arcas bounded by said grooves, said areas being finished to repre sent tiles.4

2. A wall covering comprising a rectangular sheet oflpliable nature throughout its thickness, the front side of said sheet being provided with open receiving and retaining grooves for a plastic pointing material, said grooves being straight from edge to edge of the sheet and bounding a plurali'- ty ofD independent areas, said areas being finished to represent tiles. A

y3. A wall covering'comprisin a sheet of pliable nature throughout its thickness and embodying a fabric backing, the frontside of said sheet being provided with open receiving andv retaining grooves for a plastic pointing material, and with a plurality of independent areas bounded by said 'grooves and finished to represent tiles, said grooves being `of a depth extending substantially to said fabric backing.'

I- In testimony whereof I have hereunto af-I fixed my signature.
