Description

J. H- SIMON PARTITION POST Jun 18, 1929.

Filed June 15, 1927 INVENTOR JZcoBfiJ/WO/V.

ATTORNEY Patented June 18, 1929,

UNITED, STATES PATENT OFFICE.

PARTITION .ros'r. I

Application filed June 13,

This invention relates to partitions and in particular topartition brace members of an extendable nature.

Aparticular object of the invention is to provide apartition brace or post which may be used between partition pieces to effectively hold the same together and to reduce the length of time necessary in the erection of i partitions in rooms having ceilings of various heights.

A further object of the invention is to provide a partition post which is extendable and which when in any of its extended positions is arranged to accommodate, in the grooves formed in the sidesthereof, the edges of'the partition to beheld.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a particular kind of partition post, the two pieces of whieh are made in identically the same manner andwhich are reversed and held together in sliding arrangement due to their peculiar construction.

To enable others skilled in the art to fully comprehend the underlying features of my invention that they may embody thesame in the various modifications in structure and relation contemplated, a drawing depicting a preferred form has been annexed as a part of this disclosure and in such drawings, similar reference characters denote corresponding parts throughout all the views, of which,

Figure 1 is a view in perspective of a portion of a partition showing the use in con-- nection therewith of my improved partition ost. P Figure 2 is an enlarged section on the line 2-2 of Figure 1 showing the construction of the partition post and also of-the wall engaging member. 1

Figure 3 is a view in end'elevation ofone of the members which go to make up the partition post. 7,

Figure i is a view similar to Figure 3 showing the other member that goes to make up the partition post.

, Figure 5 is a view in end elevation of the wall memberwhich is arranged to hold the partition supporting element. a Figure 6 is a view in end elevation of the partition supporting elementadapted to be used in connection with the wall member shown in Figure 5, and Figure 7 is a sectional view showing how wooden partitions or hollow steel partitions may be joined by a channel member which 1927. Serial No. 198,563.

is a unit in the construction of my improved partition.

Figure 8 is a view in end elevation'of a further modified form of construction.

Referring to the drawings in detail, 5 indicates generally a' panel which may be made of wood, steel or other metal construction and wh ch is arranged to be put up in sections to divideoff a large area into rooms, for oflice use, for instance.

It has been found in the erection of partitions ofthis kind that a great number of parts are neccssasry in the erection of wooden partitions and doors and openings in the partitions have to be planned for in advance to be properly positioned and with a view to overcoming this objection, I have provided an entendable partition post which allows partltions to be built up to any height in order to reach the ceiling, it of course being understood that the partitions will be cut to suit the height of the ceiling and will be joined by my improved partition post.

The partitions 5 are cut to any width and height and, in erecting a partition, as shown in Figure 1,.the wall strip 6 is placed in position and suitably nailed, screwed or otherwise secured to the wall 7, after whichthe partition is placed therein. This wall strip The fastening element indicated by the numeral, 13 may pass through the bottom of the partition holding -member -11 and through the wall member 6 to securely retain the two in connection with the 'wall and in position to receive the partition indicated by the numeral 14. This partition is made up in any shape or style, may be made of metal or wood and may come in lengths so that it may be cut to suitable heights to fit in depending upon the height of the ceiling from the floor.

The opposite end of the partition 14 is arranged to receive the part-itionpost, the object of the partition post being to join two sections of partitions so that they are held securely in place and make a solid wallwithout the necessity of cutting or making up suitable parts to fit a given distance.

In order to provide these telescopic posts,

' I make up a member which is provided with an overturned flange 16 and a bent-over flange or end 17, the body portion 15 of the member being'bent upon itself as at 18 to form a receivin slot for the flange 17 of a companion member, which is made in identi-,

cally the same manner and" is telescopedas shown in Figure 2 into its companion member. The turned over portion 16 of each being adaptedto receive the flange 17 of each while the turned over portions 18 are arranged to give a resiliency when the partitions are placed in the partition post. It will be evident that the combination of these members 15 will give a telescopic partition post which is adapted to fit over one side of a partition 5 and to receive the partition 19 in theopposite side thereof, the flanges 16 or turned over portions extending outward so as to provide a resilient .lip whereby when the partition is placed in position, it is releasably held due to the friction of the bent over portion 16.

It is quite evident, of course, that the parti-. tion post may be extended to accommodate any height of partition and the partitions themselves may be givenv a finished appearance through the use of suitable moulding 20.

In order to provide a joint for the partitions,

commodate different sizes or lengths of partitioning and one which may be not only used It is evident, also, that I have provided a 1 wall partition holding member which may be made up in any length and which may be extended to suit the conditions.

It is evident also, that a four piece member .may be used consisting of the inner members 26 which are held, together by the outer or edge channels 27 as illustrated in Figure 8.

While I have illustrated and described my invention with some degree of particularity, I realize that in practice various alterations therein may be made. I therefore reserve the right and privilege of changing the form of the details of construction or otherwise altering the arrangement of the correlated parts Without departing from the spirit of the invention or thescope of the appended claim.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is i A partition joining member comprising a body portion, inwardly bent flanges at the side edges of said body portion and the flanges being arranged to resiliently engage and hold together the ends of the partition. y

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
