Patented Mar. 21, 1950 WINDOW Hans E. Schueren, Mountain View, N. J. Application March 11, 1947 Serial No. 733,777

3 Claims.

My invention relates to windows and has as one of the objects thereof the provision of a structure having incorporated therein a fiexible transparent member capable of being operated to a position to serve as a storm blind or curtain and if desired having also incorporated therein a flexible mesh member for operation to a position for use as a window screen or insect curtain.

Another object of my invention is to provide a structure of the foregoing described character which may be readily attached to windows already in use without substantially modifying the same.

A further object of my invention is to provide a structure of the foregoing described character which is simple in construction, durable in use, efiicient in operation and economical in manufacture.

An important object of my invention is to provide a structure of the foregoing described character equipped with means for retaining the side margins of the curtain or the like within lateral guideways against accidental displacement therefrom.

With the above and other objects in view, as will hereinafter appear, the invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter set forth and illustrated in the accompanying drawings from which the several features of the invention and the advantages attained thereby will be readily understood by those skilled in the art.

Referring to the drawings wherein like reference characters designate like parts throughout the several views:

Figure 1 is a vertical sectional View of a window having my invention incorporated therewith.

Figure 2 is a fragmentary perspective view of the flexible transparent member in partially raised position.

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on. the line 3-3 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a sectional view of one of the guideways.

Figure 5 is a fragmentary view of the lower end of theflexible transparentmember andillustrating the means for latching the same in lowered position.

Figure 6 is a detailed sectional view illustrating the manner of securing the guide rods to the casing.

Figure 7 is a vertical sectional view of a modified form.

Figure 8 is a disassembled fragmentary perspective view of the modification illustrated in Figure 7.

Figure 9 is a transverse sectional view of one of the guideways employed in the modification.

Figure 10 is a top view of one of a number of guide members employed in lieu of guideways.

In the embodiment of my invention illustrated in Figures 1 to 6 inclusive of the drawings, I provide a frame 5 having side, top and bottom sections 6, '1 and B'securcd to the inner faces of the side, top and bottom portions 9-, l0 and H,, respectively, of a w'indow'frame and which sections are disposed outwardly of the window sashes I 2; The top' section 1 is formed with a sectional housing l3 having a bottom opening. and in which is rotatably mounted a spring;- roller 14 having secured to its periphery one end of a flexible transparent member l5 constructed of thermoplastic material and constituting a storm blindor curtain. The confronting faces of the side sections 6 have each secured thereto a substantially c-shapedguideway it formed with a longitudinally extending slot 11' and'with' the portions of the guideway defining the slot being provided with a plural-ity of hearing assemblies l8: each having incorporated therein are'la'tively small ball extending" within the guide passage-as illustrated in- Figures 3; 4 and 9- of the drawings. The side margins of the curtain l-5-arereversibly folded as at 19 to provide longitud-inally'extending channels throughout the length of the curtain, and through which are received rods 20 extending upwardly through the gui'dewa-ys 16: The upper end-of each rod 2 0--is-=curved to enable its insertion or dispositionwithin the associated channel of the fold 18- of the curtain as'thelatter is lowered, while the lower end-of the rod 20* is fixed to the bottom section 8 by means of a screw 21 as shown in- Figure 1. The marginal folds i=9 embrace the rods 20' to'provid'e sufiicient' thickness to preclude lateral displacement oi the ourtain out of the guideways. The balls-of the bearing assemblies serve teen-gagethe margins of the curtain and facilitateraising and lowering thereof.

I he lower endof 'thecurtain provided with a transverse fold 23 through which extends a relatively thin shell 24 having slidably mounted"- therein a pair ofaligned latch bars -2 5, the inner 1 ends of the bars 25. being each-pivotally con nected, lbymeans of a link, to a rocker arm'- mounted on a shaft 21 equipped with afingerpiece 28 and a toe 29 to which is attached a spring 30 connected to the shell 24. The spring, through the medium of the shaft and rocker arm, serves to urge the outer end of each bar out of the shell and into a slot 3| formed in the adjacent rod 20 proximious the bottom section 8 of the casing 5.

When the blind is in lowered position in front of the sashes 12, the latch bars 25 serve to maintain the blind in a fixed position against the tension of the spring in the roller 14. Obviously, by manipulating the finger-piece 28 and rotating the shaft 21, in a direction against the tension of the spring, the latch bars 25 will be retracted towards each other thus releasing their outer ends from the slots 3| to permit raising of the curtain 15 by a spring-roller M. The blind may be secured in a partially lowered position through the medium ofslots 32 provided in the rods above the slots 3|. From the foregoing, it will be apparent that I have provided a novel form of structure wherein the guideways coact with the marsins of the curtain to form a seal therewith and the rods function not only to accurately guide the curtain within the guideways but to preclude lateral displacement of the curtain out of the guideways.

In the form of the invention disclosed in Fi ures 7 to 9 inclusive of the drawings, the housing |3 is formed with an upper section 48 in which is rotatably mounted a spring-roller 41 having secured thereto the upper or inner end of a fiexible mesh member constituting a window screen 42 adapted to be lowered when the curtain i5 is in raised position. In order to accommodate the margins of the storm curtain l5 and the screen 42, the margins of the screen are reversibly folded as at 43 to provide channels similar to those of the curtain .l5. Modified guideways are provided, each of which comprises inner and outer sections 44 and 45 respectively, secured together by screws 46 or the like extending through the sections into the frame. provided with curved arms coacting to define the C-shaped guideway 16 for the curtain l5 and a similar guideway 47 in which the margins of the screen 42 operate in the same manner as those Of the curtain. The guideways 16 are provided with the rods 20 while the guideways 41 are provided with similar rods 48 secured therein in a like manner. I

If desirable, & plurality of substantially 0- shaped members 50 may be employed in lieu of the guideways and which members are each provided with a threaded shank 5| for securing the members to the casing and through which members the rods extend for retaining the margins of the screen or curtain within the members as clearly illustrated in Fi ure 10.

-Without fu rther elaboration, the foregoing will so fully explain the invention that others may, by applying current knowledge, readily adapt the same for use under various conditions of service. Moreover, it is not indispensable that all the features of the invention be used conjointly since they may be employed advantageously in various combinations and subcombinations.

It is obvious that the invention is not confined to the herein described use therefore as it may be utilized for any purpose to which it is adaptable. It is therefore to be understood that the invention is not limited to the specific construction as illustrated and described, as the same is only illustrative of the principles involved which The sections are 5 are capable of extended application in various forms, and the invention comprehends all construction within the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim is:

1. In combination with a storm curtain assembly having a frame provided with side sections equipped with guideways, a storm blind mounted above said sections and formed with channels along its side margins, said channels being operable in said guideways, guide means secured to said frame and extending through said guideways and channels, and friction reducing bearing means carried by said guideways for engaging said margins to facilitate movement thereof along said guideways and coacting with said guide means to preclude lateral displacement of said margins out of said guideways.

2. In combination with a storm curtain assembly having a frame provided with bottom and side sections, said side sections being equipped with guideways, a storm blind mounted above said side sections and formed with channels along its side margins, said channels being operable in said guideways, guide rods fixed to said bottom section and extending through said guideways and channels, and friction reducing bearing means carried by said guideways for engaging said margins to facilitate movement thereof along said guideways and coacting with said rods to preclude lateral displacement of said margins out of said guideways.

3. In combination, a window attachment having a frame provided with the top, bottom and side sections, said side sections being equipped with guideways, storm blind and screen members mounted in the top section and formed with channels along their side margins respectively, said channels being operable in said guideways, guide rods fixed to said bottom section and extending through said guideways and channels, said guideways being equipped with ball bearings for engaging said margins to facilitate movement thereof along said guideways and coacting with said rods to preclude lateral displacement of said margins out of said guideways.
