This invention relates to metallic partioning useful in subdividing a floor area into any desired number of separate chambers or compartments of different sizes.
The main object of my invention is yto provide partitioning of the character described capable of easy itment and quick erection, notwithstanding variations in floor to ceiling and wall to wall dimensions of buildings; which can be secured in place without injuring or marring ceilings, floors, or building walls; and which can as readily be 11e-arranged subsequently or added to at any time to suit any changing conditions or requirements.
The foregoing advantages, together with others which will be readilyA apparent from the `detailed description -which follows of the typical embodiment of my invention shown in the drawings,'I seek to attain with partitioning vwhereof all. the required parts, both as regards a skeleton supporting structure and the partitioning units adapted to be supported thereby are conducive to mass production in standardized sizes, so that by proper choice of such parts from an amassed stock, a'partition of any length orV height may be erected without recourse to individual designing or fitting, or the use of special tools in erection.
In the drawings herewith,` Fig. I is a diagrammatic plan View of a typical partitioning layout in accordance with my invention.
Fig. II is an elevation. of that side of the partitioning lowermost in Fig. I showing the use of solid panel units.
Figs. III, IV, V and VI are sectional views taken, respectively, as indicated by correspondingly identified arrows in Fig. II.
Fig. VII is a det-ail view, within the boundary indicated at VII in Fig. II, showing structural features at the junctures between filler sections used to close in places too small to accommodate stock panel units of standardized dimensions.
Fig. VIII is a fragmentary sectional view taken in accordance with the arrows VIII- VIII in Fig. VII.
Fig. IX is a broken perspective view illustrating the details of one of the main or floor to ceiling verticals of the skeleton framework which supports the partitioning units.

Fig. XII shows the detail at the region XII in Fig. II.
Figs. XIII, XIV and XV are local sections, respectively, at XIII, XIV and XV in Fig. I, showing the treatment accorded the filler sections at the designated regions.
Fig. XVI is a view similar to F ig, II showing a structure embodying'glazed partitioning units instead of solid panel type units.
Figs. XVII, XVIII and XIX are sectional views `taken as indicated by the correspondingly numbered arrows in Fig. XVI.
In carrying out my invention, I employ in connection with the skeleton supporting structure ofthe partitioning, main floor to ceiling verticals (Fig. IX) which are cut to suitable standardized lengths preferably from rolled bar sections characterized by longitudinal channels along opposite sides. As a result of edge indentation adjacent the lower ends of the bar flanges, the verticals 30 are provided with corner spurs 31 '(Fig. IX) adapted to engage into the floor of the building in which the partitioning is to be placed. To fasten the main verticals 30 at their upper ends, use-is made of extensible securing devices embodying cap pieces 32 that are cut from channel -sections and tapped to take jack screws 33. Incidental to drawing up these jack screws, protective washers 34 are placed between their heads and the ceiling as shown in Fig. V, while jamb nuts 35 associated with said screwsare tightened up to hold the latter in the final adjusted positions. In erecting a partitioning layout such as eX- emplifled in Figs. I and III, the main floor to ceiling verticals 30 are irst placed in aligned relation at predetermined standardized intervals so as to accommodatebe tween thema definite number of partitioning units such as lshown at 36. After the main verticals are secured in place in the manner above explained, basal horizontals 38-also preferably of corresponding cross section `and selectable from suitable stock lengths are laid along the floor between the feet of said main verticals and secured near their ends, as shown in Fig. XII, by screws 39 passing through their medial webs and taking into the floor. The partitioning units'36 are next inserted in such manner as to engage the channels of the main verticals 30 and basal horizontals 38, with 'supplemental verticals 40 of the same height (Fig. III) incidentally placed between them Although such supplemental verticals 40 may be cut from channeled bar sections such as used yfor the main verticals, for the sake of lightness, I prefer vto bend them to form from sheet metal withprovision of appropriate parallel flanges to'overlap the edges of contiguous partitioning units 36, as shown in Fig. III. W'ith a row of the partitioning units 36 inserted between each pair of the main verticals 30 in the manner just described, I next place upon such groups additional channeled horizontals 4l, see Figs. II and V, and secure them to the main verticals 30-at the ends-by angle clips 42 and bolts 43, that are inserted through apertures initially provided in said verticals and horizontale. In this way, it will be seen that the partitioning units 36 are perimetrically engaged in continuous grooves, jointly afforded by the verticals and horizontale, of the skeleton supporting structure and thereby retained against the possibility of subsequent displacement. In instances where the floor to ceiling dimensions permit, a second row of identical partioning units 36 may be superimposed upon the first row belween successive pairs of the main verticals 30. In other cases, where not so much upper space is available, I use units such as shown at 36a in Fig. II, of the same width but of smaller vertical dimensions. In order to properly hold the upper row of panels 36a., together' with intervening ,supplemental verticals 40a, in place, I install a second course of horizontals 41a and secure the latter to the main verticals 30 with aid of clips 42 and screws 43, in precisely the same manner as described in connection with attachment of the horizontals 4l. A like procedure is of course followed in erecting transverse r walls of a layout such as shown in I.
When desired or required, the upper row of the partitioning units 36a may be omitled fromV between certain vmain verticals 30, thereby leaving, as shown in Fig'. II, anopen space 44 at such regions.
At any desired point in the partitioning doors, such as shown at 45 in Figs. I, II and VI; may be installed in lieu of the units 36. Such doors 45 may be of any convenient construction. In the present instance they are formed entirely from sheet metal with a central panel plate 46 whereof the edge margins are engaged within an appropriate hollow border molding 47. The door openings are finished off with jamb strips 48 which are bent from sheet metal to hollow configuration so as to fit over the verticals 40x-of the species 40 but preferably formed from rolled bar section-of theskeletonframework cone. stituting the jambs. Incidental to bending, the jamb strips 48 are provided with longitudinal 'flanges 49 that serve as stops against which the doors 45 are adapted to close. The doors V45 are hungfto'the jambe by suitable hinges 50 secured to the verticals 40mand, as shown in Fig. IV, are equipped' with latches 51 operable 'by' knobs 52 of the ,usual type which engage latch openings 53 in the jamb strip 48 at the corresponding side ofthe door opening. To oset the possibilityof displacement of the verticals 40x when the doors 45are slammed, I'secure them to the floor at their bo-ttoms with aidfof angle clips 54, see Figs. IV and VI.
Any odd head` spaces remaining'above the upper course of the partitioning units 36a too narrow to accommodate the smallest-of the stock size units, are closedin byviller sections 55-Figs. VII` and'VIII-forme'd from sheet metal plates, that are of standard stock lengths, but otherwise cut roughly to suit the special requirements of each particular installation. VIVithjthe filler sections 55 are associated longitudinal edge tinishingstrips 56 formed withY rolled beadsl 57 to abut against the ceiling as shown rin Fig. VII. After proper placement, the longitudinal edge strips 56 may be secured to the plates 5 5 in any convenient manner as for example by bolts 58, see Fig. VII. To support the fillers 55 I employ, at Yopposite sides ofthe junctures of contiguous component plate sections, narrow verticaloverlap strips 59,' which are connected by bolts 60 and complementarily bent at their. lowervends to engage o'v'er the uppermost skeleton frame horizontal 41a after the manner of clamps'. At the rends, the auxiliary filler sections 55 are provided withv angularly-bent*vertical edge finishing strips 61 which jointlyr'form box moldings to fit around the skeleton frame verticals 30, as shown in Figs. XIII, XIV and XV, at the various partitioning junctures correspondingly designated in Fig. I. .i y
In Fig. XVI is shown a partitioning wall in which glazed units 70, a, are used instead of partitioning units 36, of the type shown in Fig. II. In this connection letrit be assumed that the method of erectingthe skeleton supporting structure yand the insertion of the partitioning unitsis precisely the same as that previously described, the same reference numerals being therefore employed to designate all corresponding parts. shown in Figs. XVII, XVIII and XIX, theperi- Cil `metric rails 71 of the glazed units 70, are formed -from rolled channel iron with inwardly projecting flanges 72 affording seats for the glass lights 7 3, which, in the present instance occupy the upper portion of the units; while the lower portions of said units are closed in by panel plates 75 of sheet metal in the conventional manner clearly illustrated in the drawings. The doors 76 may be given a similar treatment with their upper halves glazed as shown at 77 in Fig. XVI and the lower halves closed in by sheet metal panel plates 78. In the case of the upper partitioning units 7 Ori, only glass is used, the metallic paneliiig being omitted for obvious reasons.
