V v v n 4 Claims.

My invention has relation to. improvements in metal walltile and the construction'whereby the same is secured tothe wall, andit consists of the novel features, more fully set forth'in the specification and pointed out in the claims The invention is directed primarily to wall tile made of a metal stamping in lieu oftheusual clay tile and that embodies securing means for cooperating with suitable retaining elements car ried by the wall.

Theprimary object of the invention is to provide a tile at a minimum of cost and that may be laid up in a comparatively short .time so as to reduce the cost of installation; while-present ing practically the same appearance as the clay tile now in common use; 1

A further object is toprovide a tile that will not crack or craze as do many of the clay tiles now in use, and that will not be appreciably affected by the settling of the building in which the tile is used.

These advantages, together with others inherent in the invention, will be better apparent from a detailed description thereof in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which;

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a corner of a room in which my improved tile is-used as a wall finish; Fig.2 is a vertical cross-section taken through one of' the walls on the line 22 of Fig. 1 with the intermediate portion of the, wall broken away in view of the enlarged scale; Fig. 3 is a further enlarged portion, of the construction shown in Fig. .2 showing the joint between adjacent tiles; Fig.4 is a horizontal cross-sectional detail taken on theline -fl ofFig. 1 and shown on substantially the same scale as Fig.2; Fig. 5 is a horizontal cross sectional detail taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 1; Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a fragment of one of the retaining strips for holding the tiles in place; Fig. 'I is a perspective view of one of the upper coping tiles; Fig. 8 is a perspective view of one of the inside corner tiles; Fig, 9 is a perspective view of the intermediate tiles that make up the main body of the tile work; Fig. 10 is a perspective view of a tile-retaining.

strip that is utilized for holding the tiles on the outside corners of the wall; Fig. 11 is a perspective View of one of the outside corner tiles; Fig. 12 is a front elevation of a door frame finished with my improved tiles; Fig. 13 is an enlarged view of one corner of said door frame with tiling broken away to show the retaining strips for holding the tiles in place, the strip sections for the corner tiles being omitted, however; Fig. 14 shows the corner of the door frame with the corner tile broken away to show the strip sections whereby it is heldin place; Fig. 15 is a horizontal cross-sectional detail taken on the line I5--I5 of Fig. 13; Fig. 16 is a perspective view of the main body of door frame tiling; ,Fig. 17 is a perspective view of the corner door frame tiling; and Fig. 18 is. a perspective view of the retaining strip for the door frame tiling.

Referring to the drawings, R represents a room in which the walls :0, w are partially finished with my improved tiling T, which is madeup essentially of intermediate tiles I which make up the main body of thetiling, coping tiles 2 which form the top row of the tiling, base tiles 2' forming the bottom rowof tiling and merging into the floor F of concrete or other suitable construction, and intermediate corner tiles} and 3. g

All of the tiles I, 2,2, 3 and 3' are formed with lateral flanges andv end flanges which are arranged in spaced relation in the laying up of the tiling so that proper joint of a suitable plastic material 4 may be formed. The manner in which this is accomplished is to provide a series of tileretaining strips5 (Fig. 6) bent from sheet metal so as to provide a base plate 6, web I extending laterally therefrom, and oppositely disposed rails 8, 8 on which the tiles are carried; V

The end walls 9, 9 of the intermediate tiles are each provided with open notches It, I!) in their top and bottom edges, and side walls II, I I bent over from the face of the tile and extending up to the notches Ill, I0 so as not to cover them.

The coping tile 2 has end walls I2, I2, at the bottom of each of which is an open notch I3 and side wall I4 (similar to side wall I I of tile I). However, insteadof the lateral flange II, tile 2 has its front wall 15 bent rearwardly and downwardly to form a coping I6 and flange IE, and instead of the open notches at the top of the tile the end walls I2, !2 are provided with recesses H, H to receive the bead b of tile-retaining strip 8. The tile-retaining strip 8' is bent to provide a tongue b adjacent to the bead b whereby a slot 3 is provided to receive flange I6 of tile 2.

Tile 2' is constructed similarly to tile I except that the front wall I!) thereof is bent outwardly at the bottom to form a fillet I9 and footpiece 20. Tile 3, which forms the corner of the tiling (Fig. 4), has its front wall 2| bent forwardly at one end to provide the corner piece 22 from which flange 23 is bent outwardly so as to be disposed both flanges being connected by side flanges 21, 21 as shown in Fig. 8.

In forming an outside corner, such as shown in Fig. 5, strip 8' is vertically disposed at the corner of the wall as shown in said figure, and cooperates with the strips in holding the tiles 3' in place. The tiles 3' are formed similarly to the tiles 2 in that they have a coping l6, flange I 6' and recesses H, but instead of the open notches l3 being formed in end wallsl2, l2- there are ,open' notches I3, [3' formediin the side wall I4.

The engagement of tile 3' with the strips 5:"

and 8' is similar to the engagement of tile 2 with said strips in forming the coping.

In Fig. 12 I show a door frame finished with my improved-tile construction although the door frame tiles 33 are of somewhat difir'erent com struction than the tiles used in finishing the walls. By referring to Fig. 16- it will be seen that the tiles 33have sidewalls 34 34 bent-inward1y from the front wal-l35 to provide opposingmanges 36, 36;- End walls13l; 31' aresl-ightly narrower than the side walls "34; 34, solas to provide and short sections 43-, 43 of the-stripsare putin-placeafter the main body "of the tiling-33 is=laid up, over which are passed the corner tiles44a The tiles M' are formed with-inwardly'bent flanges 45, 45- which are slipped intothe slots 42 of-ltliestrips 40 (as shown in Fig. 14).

In layingupthetiling-on'the'wall w it is preferable to mount the-bottom retaining' strips 5 in their proper position and also the outside'corner strip 8".

The bottom rowmade upofthe-tileS Zi is nowdisposed over the strip-5, after which the strip 5 next above is secured into position or! the studding members 28' by means of sorews 29 passed throughopenings 30-. spaced along the length of the strip 5. 'I'hisoperation is-repeatecl row by row until finally the toprowofcoping tiles-2 is put in place-=and until" the walls are entirely covered.

After having-laid up all the tiles; the mechanic then arranges them so th'at the vertical spaces 3| between them areuniform; after which--all-0f the spaces, both vertical spaces 31 and horizontal spaces 32, are filled with plastic material 4. The plastic material 4 is preferably of a character that will harden or set after a short period of time whereupon the tiles are firmly fixed in place, resulting in a substantially unitary wall finish.

In order that the tiling may have an aesthetic appeal the outer surface of each tile member may be coated with aasui-tabler finish such as baked enamel, and by. utilizing; tiles of various colors any pattern of wall finish may be obtained.

Obviously, the invention is susceptible of further modification and adaptation to rooms of various shapes, and I accordingly do not wish to besrestrictedto the specific details of construction herein shown.

Having described my invention, I claim:
