TRIM FOR WALL COVERINGS Y Filed Dec. 16, 1951 Patented 23, i933 i Unirse STATES PATENT oFFlcs CHARLES E. LOEHR, OF WOOSTER, OI-IIO, A ND OSCAR MANAB, OF EVANSTON, y.AND

WILLIE R. CHAMBERLIN@ OF CHICAGO, UCTS INC., OF WOOSTER, OHIO, A. CORPORATION F OHIO ILLINOIS, ASSIGNORS TO WOOSTER PROD- TRIM'. FOR` WALL COVERIN'GS Application led December 16, 1931. Serial No. 581,356.

The invention relates to trim members for Wallcoverings and the like, and more particularly to metal trim members of solid cross section adapted for use with flexible wall coverings.

Inl the past, metal trim members for similar purposes have includedl an edge-abutting member and a securing flange, and have been constructed of sheet metal, but these have been found unsatisfactory for several reasons. l

A serious objection to these sheetmetal members is that they do not possess 'sufficient rigidity to maintain their shape before or after installation, and after installation j the eXposed portions of the members are relatively easily dented or bent out of shape,

resulting in an unsightly appearance. A

Another objection to these sheet metal members is that they require a finishing opf eration such as painting or polishing, which operation cannot be satisfactorily done before installation because the finish is apt to 4 become damaged during installation. On the other hand, if the trim members are finished after installation, the flexible covering inserted therein is very likely to be damaged during the finishing operation.

Another difficulty results from the fact that the securing flanges of the sheet metal members are of uniform thickness, and form an offset with the undersurface to which they are secured. This oset causes a cor-` respondingshoulder in the surface of the covering, requiring building up to the covering adjacent the trim member, or cutting away or rabbeting the inner surface of the covering or the undersurface to. which the 'trim member is secured, in order to provide a smooth exterior on the covering. y Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a metal trim member of solid cross section'for wall coverings and the like, having an improved securing flange which will avoid the necessity for building up tothe covering or rabbeting the /wall or covering.

Another object is to providea trim member having an edge-abutting and overlapping portion for gripping and maintaining the covering in position and at the vsame time presenting a pleasing and ornamental ap,`

f ber which will provide a pleasing and ornamental appearance when installed without rarest@ requiring a lfinishing operation before or after installation.

These and other objects are accomplished by the improvements comprising they present 1nvention which may be stated in general terms as consisting preferably of an extruded metaltrim member of solid cross section having an edge-abutting and overlapping portion anda securing flange extendingangularly therefrom, the securing flange tapering from a maximum thickness at the edgeabutting portion to a minimum thickness a its free edge.

Preferred embodiments of the present improvements are illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which l Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of a room provided with a flexible wall covering, showing the relative positions of the improved trim members;

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view through an outside corner of the room, as on line 2 2, Fig. l i

. Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional View through an inside corner, as on line 343, Fig. "1; and

Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view through the outside edge of the which extends from the baseboard 15 up'- wardly part way to the ceiling of the room.

At the outside corner of walls 11 and 12 a trim member 17 is provided for abutting and overlapping the adjacent edges of the I vided, respectively, at the upper. edges of the covering 16 on. all the Walls, and at the out-K side faces of the`door`jambs 14.

Fach of the improved trim members is preferably of solid cross-section and may be of extruded brass or aluminum and the like.

The trim member 17, shown in cross section in Fig. 2, includes a Jpair of intersecting flanges 21a., angularly disposed to each other to form substantially a -V j in cross section. An edge-abutting portion 22a, extends outwardly from the apex of the V, and is provided with angularly disposed surfaces 23@ which are adapted to abut the adjacent edges of the coverings 16 on walls 11 and 12.

Each securing flange 21a tapers from a maximum thickness at the apexl of the V, or at the edge-abutting portion 22a, to a minimum thickness at its free edge, so that the free edge is substantiallyI sharp. The undersurfaoe of each flange 21a'is adapted to lie in the plane of the abutting Wall surface, so that the upper surface of the flange inclines from a maximum thickness at the adjacent edge-abutting surface to a minimum thickness at its free edge, and aseries 'of countersunk holes are provided in the flange 21er for attachment to the abutting wall, as by screws24. p

The particular construction of the securing flanges 21a avoids the formation of a corresponding shoulder in the surface of the covering 16, eliminating the necessity of building up-to the covering at the edgeof the securing flange, or rabbeting the wall or covering.

An edge-overlapping flange 25a prefer ably extends angularly from the edgeabutting portion 22a adjacent each surfacev 23a,

and the undersurface 26a of each flange 25a is substantially parallel with the outer surface 27a of the corresponding flange 21a, and spaced therefrom a distance correspondj ing to the thickness ofthe covering 16. The

flanges 25a are adapted to overlap and substantially grip the adjacent edges of the covering 16 on walls 11 and 12, so as to conceal those edges and aid inmaintaining the coverings in position. y

Thetrim member 18, which is provided at the inside corner between walls 10 and 11, is shown inA cross section in Fig. 3, and includes a pair of intersecting securing flanges 2lb. The flanges 2lb are angularly disposed.

to each other to form substantially a V in 'cross section, and the inner surfaces of the Hanges are adapted to lie in the plane of the surfaces of the walls 10 and 11 respectively.

.by screws 24.

remata Each securing flange 2lb tapers from a.

maximum thickness at the edge-abutting portion 22b toa minimum thickness at its free edge, and is, provided with holes for attachment to the wallskff) and l11 respectively as by screws 24.

The edge-abutting portion 22b is provided with a portion 28 extending angularly inward from the portion 22?) away from the apex ofthe V, and at an angle to the securing flanges 2lb. The portion 28 is preferably provided with angularly projecting edge-overlapping.portions 251) which overlap and substantially grip the adjacent edges of the coverings 16 on walls 1() and 11. The undersurfface 26?) of each portion 25?) is substantially/parallel with the outer surface 276 of the corresponding flange 2lb,

the other edges are secured by suitable trim )10o members 30.

The trim member 29 is shown in cross section in Fig. 4, and includes securing flanges 210, disposed in parallel relation to each other and located one on themfront face and one on the rear face of the door. The xinner surfaces of the flanges 210 are adapted to lie in the planes'of the front and rear 'faces of the door, respectively.

The trim member 29 preferably includes a covering edge-abutting portion 31, which is located around forward edge 32 of the door and extends betweenthe flanges 21o.

The portion 31 is provided with an edgeabutting surface 230 adjacent each securing flange 210, which surfaces are. adapted to abut the forward edges of the covering 16 on the front and rear faces respectively of the door 14.

Each securing flange 21o tapers, from a maximum thickness at the edge-abutting portion 31 to a minimum thickness at its free edge, and is provided with a. series of holes for attachment with the door 14, as

Adjacent each edge-abutting surface 230, the edge-abutting portion 31 is provided with an edge-overlapping flange 250 projecting angularly tl1erefromand the flanges 25e are adapted to overlap and substantially a series of los y grip the coverings 16 on the front and rear .faces of the door.

The under surface 260 of each flange 25e is substantially parallel with the outer surface 270 of the corresponding securing flange 21a, and is preferably spaced therefrom a distance corresponding to the thickness of the covering 16.

Each ofthe improved trim members above described is of solid cross section and all of the Walls thereof have sullicint thickness, so that the members possess relatively great rigidity and durability. Consequently, the improved trim members will maintain their shape before installation, and after installation the exposed portions thereof will offer relatively great resistance to denting or marring of their appearance.

The vextruding metal trim members possess f an attractive finished appearance which. is sufficiently durable so as not to be marred during installation. v

In applying a flexible wall covering to a room, the A improved trim members are first secured at their proper relative locations by means of the screws 24 passing through the respective securing flanges. The covering is then cut to proper sizes to fit in the panels bordered by the trim members. Then the' covering is applied and made to adhere to v the wall and the outer surfaces of the securing flanges of the trim members by means of a suitable adhesive such as glue. The llexibilityof the covering vis suliicient to permit insertion of the edge portions of the covering under the edge-overlapping portions of the trim members.

The im roved trim members each include securing anges which are tapered to a substantially sharpfedge at their free edge portion, so that the marginal edges of the Wall covering or linoleum lay over'the securingv flanges Without causing a shoulder in the covering because of an offset at the e'dge of necessary tov build up tothe covering at the edge of the securing flanges, nor to rabbet either the surface of the wall or the under-` ness of the covering. Consequently, the

edges of the Wall coverings are concealed to enhance the appearance of the finished wall,

and the overlapping flanges securely grip orhold the edge of the covering yso as to aid the securing -flange. Accordingly, it isnotA Each ofthe improved trim .membersin- We claim:

l. A trim member for Wall coverings and the like including, a'plurality of angularly disposed securing flanges,- the trim member being providedwith an edge-abutting surface adjacent each securing flange, and an edge-overlapping portion extending angularly from each edge-abutting surface, each securing flange having its underside surface in the `plane of the Wall and its upper surface inclined from a maximum thickness at the adjacent edge abutting surface to ,a minimum thickness at its free` edge, and each edge-overlapping portion having its under surface substantially parallel to the upper surface of the adjacent securing flange.
