PANEL ASSEMBLY UNIT Charles F. Sperry, Norfolk, Va., 'assignor to The Philip Carey 'Mamii'actnring Company, a corporation of Ohio Application January 12, 1938, Serial No. 184,649

9 Claims. (01. 2o-15)' This invention relates to a device for assem bling-boards or panels in position and particularly pertains to a unit assembly for fastening ceiling, panel, or partition boards in position in a i building or similar structure.

of any design.

Generally described, the invention'comprises a l unit assembly composed of a base member that may be attached to a foundation, studding, or any frame work to which panels are to be applied. The base member is provided with a socket to receive a spring clip attached to a finishing strip, whereby the strip may be readily applied and removed Without using nails, screw, or other means of attachment. The base member may also be provided with a seating portion, preferably resil-.

ient, on which the panels may be seated and supported. The base member and finishing strip, with suitable cooperating means for automatically locking together are indispensible elements of the assembly. Other means, if desired, may

be employed to more securely hold the panels in 3 place.

For a better understanding of the invention, reference may be made to the accompanying drawing, in Which- Fig. 1 is an elevational view of a section of a partition wall embodying the invention and showing different steps of assembling the unit;

Fig. 2 is a cross -sectional view on line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view on line 3-3 of Fig. 1; Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view on line 4-4 of Fig. 1; I

Fig.- 5 is a perspective view of a holding clip; and.

forsecuring the finishing panel. 1

Referring specifically to the drawing in which like numerals are used to designate like parts, numeral l designates panels or wall boards emi ployed for finishing the walls or ceilings of a building between conventional spaced apart wooden stud or joist members 2 of a building structure. These members could be metal or other suitable material aswell as wood if desired. They merely typify the frame work of any partitiom or wall to be paneled. A- base member 3 may be attached to each of v the spaced apart studs or to those which'are to support the ends of the panels, and the panels usually are of standard width to bridge and span The unit comprises parts which may be readily connected and disconnected, and are adapted for use with panels Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the spring clip the space between two adjacent joists. Member, 3 may be conveniently attached by bolt means 4 projected therethrough and through the stud with a clamp nut 5 screwthreaded on the end of the bolt to draw the head of the bolt against mem- 5 her 3. This, too, is merely representative of any suitable fastening means as it is immaterial how the member 3 is attached to the joist. "The base member is formed of relatively light metal having its opposite side edges folded back-at 6 to extend substantially parallel with the portion 1 for a distance and then bent in to form spaced apart terminals 8 to providea socl cet. 9 therebetween, converging into a constricted neck portion. Thus the portions 6 provide yieldable or resilient sup-[ porting ledges for seating the side margins of the panel and with the terminals 8 spaced to abut the edges of the panels.

After these base members aresecured in' position upon the stud members, the panels are P111720 in place with the margins of one face side seated 1 upon the ledges of the base member, then means can be applied for holding the panels in position. This means may be in the form of a holding clip lll attached to the studdingby means 35 of a nail or screw ll. Any number of thesemay. be employed.

This holding strip may be of any desirable form but is preferably formed with an embossed .portion l2 seating between the terminal portions 8 on the base member. On the other side of the embossment is a' recess l3'in which thescrew head may be received. The ends [4 extend from this embossed portion to project over the outer margin of the adjacent edges of two adjacent panels, thereby holding the panels securely in place-upon the base member. v

The panels having been secured in place, a

' finishing strip l5 of any desired shape may be used to cover the joint between adjacent panels. 0 Means are preferably provided on the finishing strip to permit ready assembly and disassembly. The finishing strip may have one side plain and. the other; side provided with flanges IE to abut against the faces of the panels. At a midportion on the underside of the finishing strip, spring clips I! may be attached by any suitable means I8 such as a rivet. This 'clip means is of light metal material with the sides l9 bent at an angle to'a base portion 20 to conform substantially with the inclinationof portions 8 on the base member, so that it may be sprung into the socket therebetween. Any number of these clips may be provided at spaced intervals on the finishing strip or the clip may be The holding clips H] are preferably used in order to more permanently secure the panels in place, but if the finishing strips are alone desirable for holding the panels in place the holding strips may be dispensed with. Whether they or some other form of attachment be used, they are covered and concealed by the finishing strip which provides complete coverage for the joints.

While one embodiment has been described in detail for showing how the invention may be carried out, there may be various changes in details of construction without departing from the spirit of the invention.

I claim:

1. A panel fastening unit adapted to be mounted on a foundation member comprising a base member having ledge portions for seating the edges of a panel and means for spacing apart adjacent panels and providing yieldable walls of a socket, a clip to hold the edges of the panel on the ledge portions of the base member, a finishing strip covering the space between the panels, and a clip attached to the finishing strip adapted to snap into the socket of the base member.

2.
