Patented Sept. 20, 1938 UNITED STATES STRUCTURAL ANCHCR Alfred F. Arand, Cincinnati, Ohio Application August 14, 1936, Serial No. 96,091
3 Claims.
My invention relates to a new and improved anchor adapted to be used in anchoring glass plates, tile or other finishing facing material, where it is desired to have close fitting joints and no projections on the surface. At the present time considerable glass is used to face the front of store buildings, and it also is used extensively on walls and ceilings in interior construction. These plates of glass .are of various colors and form an ornamental and pleasing eiect. Heretofore, in securing these glass panels to a surface, they were merely cemented to the surface by a suitable plastic material being spread over the surface and the panels pressed thereagainst. This form of construction has resulted in considerable damage and inconvenience due to frost or other foreign material getting into the joint and causing the plates to fall away from the surface to which they were cemented. This construction is particularly dangerous in overhead Work.
The object of my invention is to provide ,an anchor arranged to aid in supporting and positioning the plates either on a wall, ceiling or floor construction. A further object is to provide the plates with recesses in the abutting edges for reception of the anchor. A further object is to provide an anchor formed to the shape of the grooves and permitting close abutment of the adjoining plates.
My invention will be further readily understood from the following description and claims and from the drawing, in which latter:
Fig. l is a horizontal section of a portion of 35 a wall showing my improved anchor and the corresponding plates held in position against the wall.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the preferred form of my improved anchor.
Fig. 3 is .a view similar to Fig. 1 showing a modiiied form of attaching means for the anchor.
Figs. 4 and 5 are views of modied forms, showing various shapes of the anchor head.
Fig. 6 is a view of a further modied form of 45 my device, and;
Fig. 7 is a plan view of a portion of a panel with the anchor therein.
I have indicated a. wall II which may be the front of a building, the interior walls, ceiling or floor to which it may be desired to secure the finishing plates I2. In securing the plates I2 which may be of glass, tile, or other material to the wall II a plastic composition I3 is applied between the plates and the wall or may be spotted at suitable positions on the back of the plate. In
(Cl. l2-101) using my improved anchor I4 in connection with the plates I2, suitable holes or recesses I5 are gouged out of the wallto form a space for the foot of the anchor. In the preferred form I provide a triangular head I 6, for the anchor arranged to be received in V slots I'I in the plates I2. This anchor is bent from a single strip o-f metal preferably of a non-corrosive character having the extending foot I8 bent to form a hook. In securing the plates I2 to the wall one of the plates is suitably cemented to the wall after the recesses I5 have been cut into the wall. The anchor I4 is then placed with a portion of the head in the slot Il with the foot I8 extending into the recess I5. Suitable plastic material I9 is then forced into the recess I 5 about the hook for securely anchoring the anchor to the wall. The next plate being applied to the construction is then positioned adjoining the first mentioned plate with the slot i'I received over the exposed portion of the head of the anchor whereby the abutting edges 26 of the plates are brought into close proximity to each other.
The foot of the anchor Ill is provided with one or more holes 2l arranged to receive a wood screw 22 shown in Fig. 3. This construction of the foot of the anchor is used when it is desired to anchor panels to a wood wall 23. The shank 24 is straight and the workman positioning the plates on the wall, bends the anchor as at 25 at the desired point to space the plates I2 the desired distance from the wood wall.
In Fig. 4, I have shown a modied head for the anchor formed in a diamond shape as indicated at 26 with corresponding grooves in the plates I2. In Fig. 5, I have shown the anchor provided with a circular head 2l arranged to be received in grooves 28 in the plates I2.
In Figs. 6 and 7 I have shown a further modification wherein recesses 3D are ground into the edge of the panel at suitable locations and the anchor is provided with a T head 3|. This construction is particularly well adapted for comparatively thin panels.
With this construction the number of anchors used to aid in supporting the plates depends on the thickness and size of the plate. The anchor and grooves in the plates are so constructed to permit the abutting edges of the plates to be set r adjacent to each other for forming a continuous surface.
While I have shown a preferred form of my invention I do not wish to be limited to the construction shown in the drawing as various other styles of heads may be provided for the anchor within the scope of the appended claims.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1. In combination with a wall, recesses in said wall, glass panels, an anchor provided with a formed head, a shank extending from said head having a bent end cemented in said recess, said panels provided with cooperating grooves for the head oi said anchor, whereby upon joining said panels said anchor holds adjoining panels with' the front edges of said panels tightly abutting each other.
2. In combination with a Wall, a recess in said wall, glass panels, an anchor provided with' a triangular head, a shank extending from said head provided with means to be cemented in said recess, said panels provided with cooperating V grooves for the head of said anchor, whereby upon joining said panels said anchor holds adjoining panels witlr the front edges of said panels abutting each other.
3. In combination with a wall, panels provided with spaced apart recesses, an anchor provided with a head arranged to be received in cooperating recesses, a recess in said wall, a shank extending from said head provided with a hooked end arranged to be cemented in said wall recess.
