Patented July 13, 1943 WINDOW SHADE MOUNTING Elmer F. Pidgeon, Spiceland, Ind.
Application January 8, 1942, Serial No. `426,073
`1 claim. o l(c1. 16o-267) j This invention relates to fan improved rwindowshade mountingand' moreparticularly tov a mounting which will'cooperate with an Opaque window shade to effectivelyprevent the passage of light rays through the windowor other opening equipped with" therinvention.
' *More particularly, it isan'airn of the invention to provide a box -adalpted'to be-'attached'tthe` lipperpart of a" window frame and adapted to contain a shaderoller and shade 'and having means for readily opening the box for applying or removing the shade` and roller.v
I Another Object of the invention is to provide channel members having ends extending into the box and which are adapted to slidably receive the side Iedges of the window Ishade when the shadeis in an extended or drawn position.
Another object of theinvention'is to provide a window shade of novel construction which can be drawn sufciently so `that it will rest on the bottom rail of the window frame and which, when so drawn, can be readily pulled by a pull cord to permit the roller to rewind the shade thereon.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will hereinafter become more fully apparent from the following description of the drawing, which illustrate a preferred embodiment thereof, and wherein:
Figure 1 isa fragmentary horizontal sectional which extend through openings I8 in the top I9 of the box I5. If desired, the box I5 can be attached to the upperrail II by extending the fastenings I1 through the rear wall 2Ilof` the box. The box I5 includes end walls 2| to the inner sides of which are attached shade roller brackets 22v for supportingv a conventionalspring winding shaderoller 23 within the box `I5 `and longitudi; nally thereof. The box I5 is provided with a front wall 24 having inturned flanges 25 at the ends thereof for engaging the inner sides of the end walls 2 E. The front wall 24 is pivotally connected to the end walls 2l by means of suitable pivot means 26 which extendthrough the end walls and the flanges 25, adjacent their upper ends. The box i5 also includes a vbottom 21 which forms an angular continuation of the low erV edge of the front wall 24 and which is dis` posed substantially at a right angle thereto. The front wall 24 and bottom 21=can be swung out` wardly and upwardly on the pivot 26 to the position, as seen in Vdotted lines of Figure 2, for exposing the interior of the box I5. The free edge View of a window frame and shade mounting on a plane indicated by the line I-I of Figure 2, showing the improved invention,
' Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary transverse vertical view taken substantially along the plane of the line 2-2 of Figure 1,
Figure 3 is a perspective view of one end of one section of one of the channel members, and
Figure 4 is a similar View of the other section.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, wherein like reference characters designate like or corresponding parts throughout the different III designates generally a conventional window frame including a top rail II, side rails I2, and a bottom rail or sill I3. The frame I0 forms no part of the invention but is shown and described merely to better illustrate the application vof the window shade mounting, designated generally I4 and comprising the invention.
The shade mounting I4 includes a box, designated generally I5 which is adapted to be disposed against the inner face of the top rail II and which is preferably attached to a top piece IB of the frame I il by means of fastenings I1 of the bottom 21 is bent inwardly and back upon itself to provide a rounded free edge 28 which is spaced from the rear wall 20 when the bottom 21 is in a horizontal, closed position as seen in Figure 2. The edge 28 and the rear wall 20 combine to form a downwardly opening slot 29 which extends the length of the box I5.
A channel member, designated generally 30, is mounted on the face of each of the side rails I2 and said channel members have upper ends which extend into the box I5 through the ends of the slot 29, as seen in Figure 2, and opposite, lower ends, which rest on the upper side of the sill I3. The channel members 30 each include a section 3I, as seen in Figure 5, and a section 32, as seen in Figure 6. The sections 3l each comprise an elongated strip having an angularly disposed longitudinal edge forming a flange 33. The sections 32 each include an elongated strip which is folded lengthwise and the edges of which are angularly disposed to form flange portions 34 which are spaced apart to provide a slot 35 therebetween. The strips 3i are adapted to be fastened against the faces of the side rails I2 by means of fastenings 35 and with the flanges 33 projecting outwardly from the outer edges of the strips 3I. The strips 32 are then applied to the strips 3l by positioning the flanges 33 in the slots or channels 35 and the anges 33 and the flange portions 34 are detachably connected by fastenings 31.
A window shade 38 is wound on the roller 23 and has its free end extending downwardly through the slot 29 and its longitudinal edges disposed in the channels 30. The shade 38 is preferably formed of a black material which is opaque to prevent the passage of light there-y through. A bar 39 is disposed in a hem 40 at the lower, free end of the shade 38 and a second bar 4I is disposed in a hem portion 42 of the shade 38 near its bottom 4but spaced therefrom so that there willbe a shade portion 43 between the bars V39 and 4I, each of which vis disposed transversely of the shade 38. A pull cord 44 is attached to the upper bar 4I.
From the foregoing, it will be obvious that the shade 38 can be drawn by the cord .44 until the lower bar 39 is resting on the sill I3 toprevent the passage of light between the sill and shade, The inwardly opening channels '30 will contain the longitudinal edges of the shade 38 and com? bine therewith for preventing the passage of light between the side rails I2 and the shade38.
The box I5 will combine lwith the shade 38 to l,
bar v39 the shade could not be raised after being .drawn to a fullylowered position.
If desired, the box I5 can be mounted inthe top of the window opening andattached tothe inner kside of the top rail II and the channels 30 can be attached to the inner sides of the side f rails I2 and disposed inthe .window openings and when thus disposed, rthe fastenings 31 could be utilized for knot only connecting the channel sections 3i and 32 but for also mounting the channels 30 in the Window opening by extending into the side -rails I2.
In Figure 9 a slightly modied form of the invention is shown wherein an additional channel member is utilized. The additional channel member 30 is mounted on the sill I3 and is fastened thereto, so as -to open upwardly, by screws 31 which extend downwardly through the iianges 33 and 34, for `connecting the channel sections 3| and 32, and into the sill I3 for mounting the channel member 3 '0 thereon. The lower ends of thechannel memberswhich are attached to the side rails 4I2 exten'dinto the .ends of the last mentioned channel member. `The face of Vthe side rails I2 can be recessed to receive the inner section 3| of theV bottom channel member, when the side channel members 30 are attached ytothe railsiZ, as in Figures 1 to 7. It Will thus be seen that the bottom edge of the shade 38,
yincluding the Ybar 39, will be received in the claim, as only-. a-preferr'ed embodiment thereof has'been disclosed.
I claim as my invention;`
A channelv membery including; an elongated; strip having a ,flange projectingangularly from one longitudinal edge, a second -strip ,having an angular slottedflange projectingfrom one longitudinal edge thereof for receiving the first mentioned Vflange, and -fastenings `for 1detachably connecting ,the .ilanges Y ELMER F.
