STRUCTURAL UNIT Filed Feb.- 5. 1930 IN VEN TOR ATTORNEYS Patented Oct. 4, 1932 UNITED STA COMPANY, OF ALBION, MICHIGAN srnucrurmn UNIT Application filed February 5, 1930. Serial No. 426,028.

The main objects of this invention are First, to provide a structural unit by means of which lathing,pencil rods or the like may be efiectively attached to beams, joists or studdings.

Second, to provide a structural unit of this character which provides uniform space between the supported element and the edges of the beam or joist, thereby providing an insulating space and a space in which pipes, conduits, electric cables and the like may be laid. Third, to provide a structural unit of this class which-may be very quickly attached to beams, studding or like structural elements of varying width.

Objects pertaining to details and economies of my invention will definitely appear from the description to follow. The invention is defined in the claims.

A structural unit embodying the features of my invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. l is a fragmentary perspective view of one of my improved structural units applied to anI beam. 1

Fig. 2 is a vertical section on a line corresponding to line 22 of Fig. 1, a pencil rod being shown in supported relation.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary perspective view of my improved structural unit.

Fig. 4 is a detail view, partially in trans verse section on line H of Fig. 3.

Referring to the drawing, 1 represents a structural element or beam of I cross section.

My improved structural unit comprises a longitudinal rod 2 which in practice is of substantial length and is formed of bendable ma terial such as heavy wire or rod. Tothis rod I secure in uniformly spaced relation the transversely disposed hangers or support engaging members 3 which are formed of wire and attached to the longitudinal rod preferably by means of welding as indicate-d at 4.

These members 3 are provided with hooks at their outer ends, the hooks of alternate supports being disposed in oppositely faced relation so that they'may be engaged with the opposite edges of a structural element such as the bottom flange of the I beam 1. The hangers or supports 3 are of such length that the longitudinal rod is supported in spaced relation to the element to which it is attached.

In attaching the longitudinal rod is bent to permit engagement of the hooks and the hooks are held yieldingly in engagement by the spring tension or action of this longitudinal rod.

The article to be supported, such as lathing as conventionally shown at 6, Fig. 2, may be attached directly to the rods 2, or in the event spacing is such that it is desirable pencil rods 7 may be added and the lathing secured to such rods as indicated.

The lathing is thus supported in spaced relation to the beam or joists providing an air space and also space in which cables, pipes, conduits or the like may be laid.

I have not illustrated such an arrangement of pipes, cables, conduits or the like as the advantage of this arrangement will be readily understood and appreciated by those engaged in the installation of such parts.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A structural unit comprising a laterally springable longitudinal lath supporting rod,

and a plurality of vertical hangers disposed transverselythereof in spaced relation and fixedly secured at right angles thereto, and having horizontal outwardly offset hooks at their upper ends engageable with the flanges of a beam or like structural element directly above their hangers, the hooks of alternate hangers facing oppositely.

' 2. A structural unit comprising a flexible resilient longitudinal rod, and aplurality of vertical attaching members welded at right angles thereto in spaced relation and having STEEL riaozouo rs horizontal hooks at their upper ends in engagement with opposite edges of a, structural element directly above said. rod, the hooks of adjacent members facing in opposite di- 5 rections.

3. A structural unit comprising a horizontal supporting member, and a plurality of vertical attaching and supporting members disposed in spaced relation thereon and hav- 10 ing horizontal laterally offset hooks at their upper ends engageable With opposite edges of a structural element directly above said supporting members.

In Witness whereofI have hereunto set my 15 hand. 7 V
