GUY F. KUTRBATY ATTORNEYS Patented Aug. 24, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE WALL SUPPORT Guy F. Kotrbaty, New York, N. Y., assignor t Ferrocon Corporation, Philadelphia, Pa., a corporation of Delaware 10 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in building construction and more particularly to novel wall supports as building structural elements and to the method of assembling same in building systems. This application is a division of my application Ser. No. 14,808, filed April 5, 1935 for Building construction and structural elements therefor.
For certain structural purposes it is desired 0 to erect building structures with a minimal amount of structural cementitious plastic material, and this is accomplished by forming a skeleton metallic structure of novel and improved structural elements in new and structurally effi- 5 cient combinations whereby a minimum amount of metallic skeleton material is made use of without involving the loss of structural strength in a building structure. The novel structures herein may be readily assembled and the parts thereof 6 quickly secured together in cooperative relationship.
It is a feature of novelty of the present invention to provide wall-supporting structural members and studding members, together with floorsupporting members secured thereto and ar ranged at desired floor levels.
Another feature of novelty resides in the provision of stud members for buildings having supporting shoes integral therewith.
A further feature of novelty is the provision of stud members having latticed web sections and adapted to receive and space panel wall sections to form continuous walls which may receive both vertical and horizontally disposed pipes, conduits 5 and building services generally, as well as being adapted to serve as plenum chambers or continuous ducts for air conditioning systems and the like.
Another feature of novelty of the present invention is the provision of inter-stud bracing members associated with floor members and supports therefor and mutually interlocked therewith to impart lateral stability to a building structure and prevent weaving of the parts 5 thereof.
It is also a feature of novelty of the present in" vention to provide a structural steel frame building having Walls and floors mechanically interlocked and braced and adapted to receive pre- 50 formed or structural plastic wall surfacings as de sired.
Other features of novelty of the present invention include adjustable studding supports and channels therefor; as well as stiffening members 55 for studding to permit a desirable variance in load carrying capacity of standard section studs.
These and other desirable features and advantages of the present invention will be described in the accompanying specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, certain preferred forms and structures being shown by way of illustration only, for, since the underlying principles may be incorporated in other structural embodiments, it is not intended to be limited to the structural features here shown and described, both alone and in combination, except as such limitations are clearly imposed by the appended claims.

Referring more specifically to the drawings, the walls lllil may be joined of a plurality of spaced stud members H0 supported on structural foundation members I20. These structural foundation members I20 are adapted to be associated with and to be secured to basement foundation Walls I30, as will be described more in detail hereinafter. The floors, designated generally by the numeral 200, may be supported from the studding members I It, as by means of hinge joint yokes or U-shaped constructions, designated generally by the numeral lit.
The flooring 200 has supporting members including unitary structural members formed of spaced floor and ceiling panel sections secured to and spaced apart by semi-truss end or web sections, or, as shown in Fig. 9, truss members.
indicated generally at 220 may also be'used for this purpose. The several floor units and supporting members, plate girders for long floor spans, and separate truss members, when used, are secured to the supporting members I40 and functionally equivalent members, when used, as by means of suitable mating hinge-joint connection members, indicated generally by the number 240.
Considering the several novel features of construction herein, and with particular reference to a preferred method of assembling a building, the foundation and wall construction will first be described, As shown in 'Figs. 1, 2, 3, and 9, the foundation wall I30 may be made in the usual manner and may comprise a concrete or other basement wall in any suitable fashion. Mounted on the basement foundation and suitably aligned, is .a starting and aligning channel and support ing and bearing member I20, of particular construction, which will be described more in detail hereinafter. The starting and supporting channel I20 may be secured in place by hook bolts HI passing through the channel member I20, the latter being held in place by nuts I 32 cooperating with the bolts. The bolts are anchored in the concrete or basement foundation by means of anchored members I33, which may be rods or the like, passing through the eye or hook of the bolt IN. A suitable number of bolt-and-nut members may be embedded in the foundation wall and the starting Wall basement members I20 secured thereto in desired alignment.
bers I20 comprise a generally channel-shaped member having a bottom portion I2I apertured to receive bolts I3I and to be locked in place by nuts I32 cooperating therewith. The channel members have sides I22 terminating at their upper edges in inturned stiffening and locking flanges I23. The members I20 may also be provided with aligned apertures I24 adapted to receive bolts and nuts I25 for locking composite studding members in place, as will now be described.
.The composite studding IIO of the present invention comprises, a pair of opposed vertical structural supporting members III of generally rectangular or cylindrical shape, or any other desired configuration, which members are slotted longitudinally and are preferably provided with inturned flanges inwardly of the slots, all as indicated at l l 2, whereby to provide increased stiffening effect in the members ,a'swell as toprovide locking elements for wall panel constructions" to be described more in'detail hereinafter. The stud-like or stanchion members or sections i I! are spaced apart and held by spacers or separators II4, which may be buttwelded to thefaces II3 of the members H I, as indicated generally at IMa. This construtcion givesia generally lattice or ladder-like construction and structural member which is rigid in all its parts. The faces of one inch more or loss.
or portions I I3 of the stanchion members II I may be bowed inwardly along their length, as indicated at II3a, to increase the stiffness and rigidity of the parallel vertical elements. In manufacture, a pair of members or vertical supporting elements I I I and appropriate'spacers I I i, may be suitably mounted, in spaced parallel relation, in a jig and the Whole electrically welded as by butt-welding, or they may be welded by hand, as by electric arc welding or gas welding, or brazed. It will, of course, be appreciated that other mechanical methods of securing the members together in" fixed relationship, may be made use of. Among such methods may be indicated the slotting of the sections I I3 of members I I I and the providing of members II4 with tongued ends adapted to fit in and engage the slots formed in sections I I3.-
Bolts or rivets may be used to effect the same i results, but require greatertime-for assembly.
The lattice or composite structural studding I I 0 is provided with a base member or support H5 comprising an inverted channel member butt welded or otherwise secured at its base to the it will be noted that the vertical building supporting or wall members IIO may beslidably engaged by the socketed channel or base member I20, the foot member or shoe I I6 being sprung into place in the channel member and being locked therein, or prevented from beingpulled out by the flanges I23 of the sides of the base channel or wall support I20.
The base channel I20, as previously. noted, is provided with a plurality of aligned apertures I24, spaced suitable distances apart of the order The vertical supporting units comprising the shoes I IS with the integrally associated studdin IIO', are adapted to be moved along the base-supporting and locking channel I until the aligned apertures I I 9 inthe shoe member are in alignment with a pair of apertures I24 in the base channel member. When a suitable and desiredspacing between vertical supporting units assemblies has been secured, the assemblies are permanently locked in position by inserting bolts I25 through the aligned aperture-s I2 and I I9, and locking themin position by associated nuts of the bolt-and-nut assemblies.
It will be noted that when the bolt assemblies are tightened up the sides I22 of the supporting and base channels I20 will be pulled inwardly of the wall and towards each other so that a positive gripping and locking of the shoes I I6 of the vertical structural units IIO. to the base channels 2 I20 is effected. With this construction the studding assemblies H0 are permanently and positively. securedand held'in a desired alignment and spacing in building wall constructions.
To permit the joining and supporting of floor constructions 200 to the studding members H0 at desired floor levels or heights, floor supporting structural members I40 are provided. As indicated generally and in detail in Figs. 7,
8 and 9, the composite hinge floor joint construction, which is a feature of novelty of the present invention, comprises a pair of yoke members HM! and 240 which are adapted to be locked together by pin members M l, when floor trusses are used.
floor supporting members generally. These plate Where floor unit-s are used, modified connection members are used, as described hereinafter.
The yoke members M0 comprise parallel sides l4! with a base M2 therebetween and co-extensive herewith, forming a generally U-shaped member with the sides. At their ends the sides l4! terminate in hinge sections or portions I43 spaced from each other and adapted to receive other like hinge members 244 of the floor connection members, the two pairs of hinge members being held together and locked by pins M4. The yoke or spaced floor supporting member-s I40 are permanently secured to the studding sections l i l of the members I l 0 in any desired manner, as by 0 means of spot-welds, rivets, bolts and nuts, all as indicated generally at M5. The connection member or members 248 which, while forming a part of the floor supporting members, form a component part of the composite hinge joint con- 5 structions herein, comprise a generally U-shaped member having sides 24!, a base portion 242, and end flanges 243 which are outturned and terminate in coiled hinge sections M4. The members 249 will secure and hold plate members 2400 of members are permanently secured to the connection members 240 and held in place as by means of bolts, Welds, or rivets, all indicated generally in 24011. 5 The floor constructions, designated generally by the numeral 200, may comprise one or more types of floor supporting truss members, designated generally by the numeral 228, as well as composite truss-form floor units shown and described in the parent application hereof, are secured to the Wall supports or studding members H0, as hereinabove described. These floor constructions are provided with floor and ceiling panel members, which may be preformed with 5 suitable surfacings or may have suitable surfacings including hardenable structural plastics applied and formed in place on the assembled members.
The floor constructions, here shown by way of 0 example only, may comprise top rails HI and bottom rails 230 with interposed truss pin members 235 forming floor-supporting truss members, designated generally by the numeral 220. Floor and ceiling panels, respectively designated as 2l5 and H6, may be secured to the rails 22! and 230 in any desired manner as by welding, brazing, rivets, etc. The several paneling members will vary in weight and construction, according to the loads to be supported. The floor 0 paneling members 2 l 5 may be made of heavy expanded metal lath, as shown, or of steel deck material, while the ceiling paneling members 2 l6 are desirably made of lighter weight expanded metal lath, or like structural material. The cell- 5 ing paneling may be adapted to receive ceiling surfacings 30L of any suitable hardenable structural plastics. The floor surfacing may comprise a base of cementitious aggregate of concrete or the like, designated generally by the numeral 2 l1, 0 together with a surfacing N8 of any of linoleum, compressed wood fiber, plywoods, and other equivalent material. Rubber compositions and other prefabricated floor surfacings may be laid over the concrete or the floor base 211 and se- 5 cured thereto by an interposed mastic cement 2 I9, or equivalent material. Where desired, floor surfacings, as above may be applied directly to the panel members 2l5 without the use of an inter mediate body 21'! of concrete or the like.
The floor truss members 228 are provided with yokes or plates 240 having hinge joint sections 244 adapted to be aligned with the hinge joint sections of members M3 and sections 2% cl X-supports 2%, and secured together by locking pins I44.
Referring now to Figs. 5, 6, '7 and 8, novel structural members are disclosed for increasing the structural rigidity of the superstructure and maintaining a desired, accurate alignment and spacing of the several parts. Referring more particularly to these figures there is disclosed a spacing and bracing member 28% adapted to prevent weaving of the several parts of the superstructure without involving any fractional displacement from the perpendicular of the vertical structural members as well as displacement from the horizontal of the horizontal structural members. This member 288 comprises a generally flattened X-shaped member having arms 28l formed with flanges or edges 282 and terminating in hinge sockets 283 adapted to engage and mate with other hinges I43 and 2M hereinabove described. These members may be die-formed or forged to give a desired structural rigidity and toughness. The legs or sections 28l of the member 288 may be given any desired curvilinear configuration to secure maximum of strength with a minimum of material. Thus, it is believed, the opposing strains on both sides of these mem bers are equalized by the particular configuration of the parts thereof, so that unbalanced forces are not set up in any parts thereof or in the associated building parts with which they are connected and/or form a part. As noted in the various figures above referred to, the members 289 are spaced between and included in hinge-joint construction members and usually in such a manner that the hinge sections 2% thereof are included in and form a part of the joint-hinge construction and are held in place by the pin members I44. In use, these members, due to their construction and arrangement, will not only prevent weaving of the parts in the superstructure and other parts of the structure, but in addition where used at floor levels with the hinge-joint-plate members I40 are spaced between parallel studs as shown more in detail in Figs. '7 and 8, they will aiiord a proper and positive alignment of the upper portion of the stud members and key them or look them. in a desired spaced relation, thus enhancine-afi assuring the stability of the panel members id; without requiring the panel members to serve as structural building supporting members. This permits the use of extra light weight panelling materials which are not required to be load bearing or stress supporting. These panel members may be locked in place in the studs, as previously described, the bracing and supporting members 280 being placed thereover and locked in position after the panellings have been secured in position. It will be noted, further, that due to the particular construction and arrangement of the members 28!] a desired and effective resistance to wind-stresses is imparted to the building or buildings in which these members are incorporated and serve for this purpose as wind-bracing members.
The wall members or panellings and their means of adjustment to the vertical structural supporting'members of studs will now be described. The wall members I60 may be composed of panels I6I of any suitable material such as metal lath in its various forms, including expanded metal lath with and without ribs. Pressed metal lath may also be used, as well as other metal sheathings including vitreous enamel sheets which are to serve as panels in and of themselves or as supporting members for plastic 10 surfacings or preformed surfacings. Among the other surfacings which are comprehended within the purview of the present invention may be mentioned bakelite and other condensation prodducts when formed into panelling members; sheet 7 rock or asbestos-base materials, generally, in-
cluding cementitious aggregates of the same; gypsum and otherproducts conformed into sheet or panel form. In addition to these general types of panelling materials, other materials may be used, including compressed wood-base panellings with or without cement inclusions or ce- 5 ramic materials. Included in the above materials will, of course, be comprehended materials such as gypsum wall board, asbestos wall board,
porcelain slabs and like ceramic products, wood fibre wall boards and paper-base boards with any desired surface finishes. Among other materials comprehended within the scope of these, disclos sures are linoleum and cork-base sheetings or surfacings generally, ply-wood, oilcloth suitably finished and properly backed, as indicated above. The light-weight structural materials at present inuse, including expanded structural materials of cement and other plastics may also be used. Some of these materials are known by the trade names, Aircrete, which is an expanded cementi- I tious-base material; Mobelli, which is a woodfibre cement composition; Microporite, which is a lime-sand composition; Porocrete, which is a 40 slag cement composition; Solidon, which is, ap-
parently, a soapstone-base composition; and oth-' er like and equivalent structural materials. Enamel steel sheets or plates can be used where desired, and may of course, be formed with any 5 suitable surface finish. Hardenable plastic materials when formed into sheets or panels and with any desired surface or simulated surfacings,
may be used, as well as artificial and natural brick and stone materials, including thin tiles and the like, all being suitably secured to or supported on supporting members such as wire lath, or equivalent materials. In the use of metal panellings of steel and steel compositions, aluminum and its alloys, copper and its alloys, andmetals andtheir alloys generally, which are susceptible of forming into sheets and plates, may be made'use of. In the use of materials such as aluminum and copper and othermetals, anodic" surfacings or coatings may be formed and these oxidized coatings may be colored, as by dyeing, to cause any desired colorization and finish; but particularly, desired results are obtained with dyed aluminum oxidized surfacings in avariety of wall and panel colorings. as the 5 lakes formed are quite permanent androf good color and depth. Oxidized copper panellings may be anodically prepared to secure a variety of green colorings associated with natural weathering of such materials commonly known as verdi- 70 gris. From the foregoing it will be appreciated that the Wall and panel'surfacings may be made of a wide variety of materials without departing from the spirit and disclosures of the present in- ,vention. This flexibility and use of material is f 75 enhanced bythe fact that the panellings, as such,
are not required to be load-supporting and to the: further fact that they are rigidly and permanently'secured in place in a special manner, as will now be described.
The panel members I6I, above noted, are secured to the vertical and horizontal building supporting members in a new and improved fashion by securing members I62. The securing members I62 are elongated channels having a base body portion I63, a side stiffening flange I64 on one side thereof, and an elongated flange I65 on the other side terminating in a folded-over spring edge I66.
arranged as to permit their insertion in the slots or apertures formed by the inturned stiiTen- The bers I6I permits, the sections I62 may be cast in place along the edges thereof.
It will be seen that when a pair of panels I6I with their associated securing sections I62, are assembled in a wall so that the sections I65 are introduced into the slotted studdings III and the spring edges I66 snapped in the same and prevented from being pulled out by the stiffening and holding flanges II2 of the stud sections i I I, the panellings-are permanently held in place. Themembers I62, are preferably made of appreciable length to give an increased gripping and supporting function to the assembly. If desired the members I62 may be co-extensive in length with the panels with which they are associated or they may be formed of smaller sections or segments suitably secured to the panels along the entire length. The panels I 6| may be so assembled that their supporting members I62 have to abut like members in a wall or flooring joint, to give a substantially hair-line joint I68, as shown more'particularly in Fig. 8; In a finished assembly the interior space members III may be filled with mastic, heavy grease and other Water-repellent compositions. compositions used and including cement and the like may be adapted to bond to the metal parts with which they are associated, in which case a composite structural member is formed. -As previously noted, the sections I66 are spring members and should be co-extensive in length with the flanges I65 of which they form a part, or they may be formed of separate cutout fingers to more readily permit the introduction of the members I62 into the studdings III. It will, of course, be appreciated that the sections I66 instead of being formed of continuous metal as a single member ora plurality of integral fingers, they may be formed of separate fingers welded in place on' the members I 65.
The securing members are generally adapted for use with floor and ceiling panels, as well as with the'wall panels, care being taken in the several assemblies to use material of suitable gauge and strength for the purpose desired.
Where itis desired to form large openings in the walls, and stud members are required to carry lintels spanning such openings, auxiliary stiffening and reinforcing supporting members may be associated with the stud members. As
shown more particularly in Figs. 4 and 10, they The section I65 and associated spring-clip edges I66 are so configured and The filling auxiliary member 5H3 comprises a flat body portion 5 having apertures 5&2 in any suitable number and arrangement, and preferably centrally of the section 5H, for a purpose to be described hereinafter. The body portion of the member is folded inwardly at its edges to form sections 5i? parallel with the body portion 5! l. The sections 5E3 terminate in outstanding stiffening flanges 554, which. are so configured and arranged as to provide a gripping engagement thereof with sections H3 or llila of the stud members llll when the members m are pushed in place therein. Bolts 5 l 5 may be passed through the opposed members bid and are secured by nuts 5H3. Owing to the vertical, staggered arrangement of holes the bolts 525 can be used in any desired number under conditions such that the transverse supportin members N4 of the composite studs H0 do not interfere with the securing of the auxiliary members bill in place opposite sides of the studs l lli. These members 555 provide an easy, accurate and reliable method of strengthening any given stud assembly to hold increased loads. By varying the gauge of the metal used in forming the members fiitl any desired structural strength can be imparted thereto, and due to the reverse bend ing of the edges of the members, together with the parallel stiffening flanges 5M, a maximum of structural strength is secured with a minimum of material. The juxtaposition of a pair of such members in opposed relation on either side of a stud, and positively secured thereto, renders the vertical supporting system of the present building constructions remarkably flexible with a minimum outlay of extra material, time and cost. It is to be noted that while bolts 5l5 have been shown and described the truss members did may be secured and locked in place by pinning members extending through the apertures 5l2 and crimped or bent in place. Cotter pins and other securing members may also be used, or the members may be tied in place by binding wire.
It will now be appreciated that there have been provided improvements in building constructions, including novel structural supporting members and associated parts. The several structural members entering into the various building features are novel in design and function and provide, both alone and in the several combinations herein disclosed, a desirable structural strength with a minimum of weight of material. In addition, the improvements of the present invention are particularly adapted for use in the design and erection of so-called dry house constructions in which the several parts are preformed and assembled in place upon a finished structure, although, as already indicated, the several parts and improvements herein can be associated and erected into building structures with the aid of the usual structural cementitious plastic materials, and the like, to form the usual so-called wet system structures.
The terms and expressions which have been employed are used as terms of description and not of limitation, and there is no intention, in the use of such terms and expressions, of excluding any equivalents of the features shown and described, or portions thereof, but it is recognized that various modifications are possible within the scope of the invention claimed.
