V (o1. 2s0), I
4 Claims.
My invention relates to metallic bed constructions. More particularly, my invention relates to a novel construction for foot and head pieces of metallic beds.
One of the objects of my invention is to provide a novel and improved construction for foot junction will be visible when the bed is viewed from the front.
till another object of my invention is to provide a novel and improved construction for foot and head pieces for metallic beds which shall comprise relatively fewand simple parts, which shall be easy to assemble, rugged in construction and which, at the same time, shall be highly efiicient for the purposes intended.
Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.
The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction," combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the claims.
, In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of the various possible embodiments of this invention, I
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a head piece for a metallic bed constructed in accordance with my invention.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged perspective view of the rear of a portion of the head piece shown in Fig. 1, being cut vertically to disclose the construction thereof.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross-sectional view taken substantially on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a plan view of the stamping which forms the panel part of the head piece illustrated in Fig. 1.
Fig. 5 is a perspective view similar to Fig. 1 but illustrating a foot piece constructed in accordance with my invention; and
Fig. 6 is an enlarged cross-sectional view taken substantially on the line 6-6 of Fig. 2.
Referring now in detail to the drawing, there is disclosed a head piece I0 and a foot piece II of a metal bed constructed in accordance with my invention. These head and foot pieces l0 and I l are preferably of similar'design and construction and may be made of equal size or, if desired, they may vary in height, as shown. Each of said head and foot pieces may'comprise a metallic frame member, having a pair of parallel vertically disposed ,legs' I2 interconnected adjacent their upper ends by a transverse portion l4. The'portion I4 may be permanently attached to the legs I2 by any suitable attaching means well known in the art, such as welding or soldering, to form a unitary frame member which may be in the form of an inverted U, as shown, or which may be of any other desired shape. The legs I2 and the transverse portion I4 may be of hollow construction in order to minimize the weight and may be of .any desirable cross-sectionalcontour shown in the drawing. Attached to'the metallic frame just described is a metallic sheet member I5 which is so designed that when it is attached to the metallic frame all of the transverse portion I4 and all, or substantially all, of the legs I2 will be concealed when viewed from the front, thus presenting a neat, smooth and even surface without visible seams to mar the smooth effect.
In Fig. l of the drawing I have shown in reduced scale astamping or blank of the member I5, which comprises aflat sheet of suitable metallic material having arectangular portion a, b, c, d and lateral extensions e, f, g, c, and e, f, a, g, disposed on opposite sides thereof. Extending laterally from the said extensions, are portions h, k, m, and g. Extending from'the bottom edge of the portion a, b, c, d is a portion 1), r, s, t.
In attaching the member I5 to the tubular frame the extensions h, e, ,f, c, g, k and h, e, f, a, g, k, are folded on the lines 1, c, and f, a, to lie at right angles to the rectangular portion a, b, c, d, after which th last named rectangular portion may be causedto contactively overlie the corresponding flat sides l2a of the legs I2 and the member I4 insuch manner whereby the extensions h, e, f, c, g, k, and h, e, f, a, g, k, will at the same time contactively overlie the corresponding outer flat sides I2b of the legs [2. It is noted that th upper part of the portion a, b, c, d extends above the transverse member I4 and that a portion of such upwardly extending portion is arched to conform to the curvature of the edges e, f and then folded over at A to lie parallel to and spaced from the portion a, b, c, d, as clearly shown in Fig. 2 of the drawing. A portion adjacent the extreme edge a, b of the member I5 is folded over on the fold line :0, y to form the portion B contactively overlying the top surface of the transverse member Hi. The portions of the edges :0, ,f and y, j, which are caused to be arched and to lie adjacent the extension edges e, I, may be joined in any suitable manner well known in the art, such as, for example, by soldering or welding.
To more firmly attach the metallic member IE to the metallic frame above described, the lateral extension portions h, m, k, g are folded over the fold lines 'm, g to lie between the inner surfaces of the extensions e, f, g, c and e, a, g (which have now become the ends W of the head and foot pieces) and the faces l2b of the legs [2, as
clearly shown in Fig. 6. The folded over portions h, m, k, g may then be weldedly attached to the legs l2 at spaced points D along said legs. In order to artistically finish off the bottom horizontal edge of the member l5 the-portion p, 1, 12,3 may be angularly folded over on the line 30,4 and again folded inwardly on the fold line 11., v to assume the position as shown in- 2 of the drawing,
It will thus be seen that. there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are. achieved-,= and which: is well. adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.
As various .possible embodiments might be .made .of the above invention and various changes. might-be made in thekembodiments above set forth, it is understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to beinterpreted asillustrative and not in a limiting sense.
