METAL TILE WALL STRUCTURE Filed Oct. 3. 1929 Patented July 11, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE HERBERT R. SPENCER. OF ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA, ABSIGNOR T0 PORCELAIN TILE CORPORATION, A CORPORATION OF DELAWARE METAL TILE WALL s'rnuc'rvna Application tiled October 8, 1928. Serial No. 897,018.

The present invention'is designed to improve metal tile. sheet metal and roous enamel ivin the the ordinary tile. t is These tiles are formed of preferably coated with vitm the appearance of desirable in the formation of such tile to provide a simple means of securing the tile to a backing so as to form a tile wall and in order to improve the apm-arauce by dividing the tile surface into sectiuns as with ordinary tile it is desirable to separate the tile into units with a cement filler and where such tiller is to lock the filler in used it is necessary This can referlace. ably he accomplishell by spacing the ti e from the haclcin In arranging for such spacing a prefer-rm means-is to utilize the attaching lugs for accomplishing this-spacing. The provision of this spacing not only forms the means for locking the cement throu h the extension of the cement under the e ges of the tile, but the cement forms a very secure seat for the tile, thus preventing any yielding of the tile under pressure which would tend to loosen the cement and give an impression of lack of solidity of the wall. The invention contemplates also the formation not only of single tile units but tile plates in WhlCll with securing means a plurality of units are formed and united. Preferably the units of these plates are separated so as to provide cement spaces corresponding to the cement between the plates. This arran ement adds to the convenience and ease with which a wall'may be formed. Features and details ofthe invention specification and clalms.

A preferred embodiment of the'invention' will appear from the is illustrated in the accompanying drawing as follows Fig. 1 shows a perspective view of a tile plate.

Fig. 2 a perspective view of a wall structure with the tile in lace.

ng. This may be of receiving nails, or

similar securing means and preferably is a closed hacking at least at the points of separation. The tile plate is made up of a number of tile units I. These tile units are flanged around their edges at 2. Securing projections 3 and 4 extend from the edges of the plate. There are a plurality of these at the outer edge of each unit an they are oil-set relatively to a central line similarly on all edges so that the projections on each edge of each plate may underlie the adjacent plate. The projections 3 and 4 are beneath the plane of the p ate and the plate is preferably spac ed from the back wall with such projections in mlgagemcnt with the wall and this space after s a means by which the projections may be readily slipped under an adjacent plate and also is of very material advantage as hereinafter described. The units 1 have the cut-out spaces 5 between them and are 7 connected at lntervals at their adjoining corners by straps 6 and nearer the outer edges of the plate y straps 7. Cement 8 is forced into the spaces 6 and into spaces lie between the adjacent plates after the tile plates are 7 secured to the wall backing. This cement 8 under pressure as it is forced into the space flows into spaces 9 under the edges of the tile. Extensions 8a of cement form locks, or keys for anchoring the cement securely in the s aces and also form a close fitting seat for t e tile so as'to prevent an looscness of the tile, the cement forcing t e tile outwardly to take u any looseness. To this end the bridges 6 and 7 are comparatively narrow so that there may be no great length of the cement which is not supported by the extendin lock.

In 1g. 5 a single unit 10 is shown. With the exception of the projections'll and 12 for the straps (land 7 the unit 10 is similar to the unit 1. It is laid up in the same manner as the tile plates, the spacing between the several tiles being filled with cement and having the locking extensions as with the 05 tile plate. This unit is useful in filling out spaces of wall where less than an entire tile plate is required and, if desired an entire wall may be laid u with the individual units.

As before stated, the tile is preferably coated mo with a vitreous enamel which may be made to correspond in color and surface texture with the ordinary vitreous tile. What I claim as new is 1. A metal tile wall comprising a suplporting wall backing; metal tile plates, each aving a lurality of tile units spaced one from anot er, the plates being cut through between the units and having joining straps at intervals, said plates havin securlng projections along their edges, sai joining stra s and'projections being under the plane of t e plates, the projections of one plate underlymg an adjacent plate with a spacing in the manner of the spacin between the units; and a plastic filler in t e spaces between the plates. I

2. A metal tile wall comprising a supporting wall backing; metal tile plates, each having a plurality of tile units spaced one from another, the plates being cut through between the units and having joining straps plates, the projections of one plate underly- 1ng.an adjacent plate with a spacing in the manner of the spacin between the units; and a plastic filler in t e spaces between the plates, said filler extending under the plates seating the plates and locking the cement.

3. A sheet metal tile plate having a plurality of spaced tile units with inturned flanges at their edges, the inner edges of the flanges of the units being connected by the metal of the plate, portions of the metal in the spaces between the tile units being cut away and spacing the inturned flanges of the tile units from a backing to which the tile may be attached.
