H. F. SCHULTE FENCING CONSTRUCTION July 25, 1950 Filed NOV. 5, 1947 INVENTOR. H. F. 5 BHuIT'E ta a ATTORNEY Patented July 25, 1950 UNITED .s
FENCING CONSTRUCTION Hans F. Schultc, Fenton, Mich.
s, 1947, Serial No. 783,794
' Application. November 1- This invention relates to fences and more particularly, as the principal object of the invention, to provide fencing formed of sheet material, such as aluminum, which will not rust and is pressed 'into formations to provide" rigidly reinforcedpost and panel members which will be strong and durable, and withstand weather conditions.
Another object of my invention is to provide such fencing fabricated from stamped and pressed sheets of aluminum, the stampings utilizing the major portion of the material so that there will be little or no waste, and when pressed into shape the fencing will be of attractive appearance and be reinforced both vertically and laterally.
Further objects, details and advantages of my invention will appear in the following detailed description of a highly satisfactory embodiment of my fencing which is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of fencing in accordance with my invention illustrating the posts and an intermediate panel section in separated relationship.
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary side elevation of the fencing, illustrating the ends of two panel sections connected with a post.
Fig. 3 is a plan View illustrating the manner of stamping posts from a sheet of metal, the posts being illustrated thereon in their form as pressed to shape.
Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view taken substantially on line 4-4 of Fig. 1, of a post member.
Fig. 5 is an enlarged horizontal sectional view "5 taken substantially on line 5-5 of Fig. 1 illustrating details of the post anchor member.
Fig. 6 is a vertical sectional View of the fence panel, taken substantially on line 6-6 of Fig. 1. Fig. 7 is a horizontal sectional view of the panel and post connection, taken on line 1-1 of Fig. 2. Fig. 8 is a vertical sectional view of the same taken on line 88 of Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawings, fencing in accordance with my invention comprises panel sections A and posts B stamped from sheet metal, preferably aluminum which is weatherproof and will not corrode whether the fencing is painted or not. Such stamped members are finished by bending or pressing operations providing peripheral inturned flanges l0 and II along the outer edges of the panel and post sections, respectively. The panel sections have a pair of outwardly extending longitudinal upper and lower ribs l2 and the posts are each provided with vertical out- 2 Claims. (01. 256-24) 2 l standing ribs l3. The conformation thus obtained, renders the fabricated members substantially rigid to withstand normal strains on the fencing and presents a fence which is pleasing in appearance.
Panel sections A are stamped from the sheet metal, which may be normally quite flexible, in sections and may be six feet more or less in length by way of example, and of the desired height. The peripheral edges are pressed to provide the inturned flanges I0 and longitudinal outstanding ribs l2 are formed lengthwise thereof as referred to above and as will be further described in connection with posts B. The finished fence panel thus comprises a plurality of reinforced vertical spaced pickets M with a pair of horizontal reinforced rails l5 having reduced outwardly open ears H6 at their ends with apertures H or the like for connection with apertured cars it of the posts B which are of a larger size soas to overlap the panel section ears l6 and may be rigidly connected by means of bolts, rivets or the like l9 as shown in Figs. 2, '7 and 8. Ears l8 are of the same cross section as fence panel rails l5 so that when they overlie the reduced ears I6 at the ends of the rails they form a continuation of the rails.
Posts B, as shown in Fig. 3, are first stamped from sheet meal 28 as indicated by the broken lines 2|, extending alternately in reverse directions so that cars I3 of one post will cover the space beyond the ears of the next post thus conserving material, the cuts leaving very little scrap or waste. Finished posts B pressed with inwardly projecting flanges l l and outwardly projecting ribs [3 are shown overlying the blanks 22 stamped from sheet 20, to illustrate the manner in which the blanks are contracted as to width of the post and ear members when the flanges 13 are pressed into shape; in the fence panel A the picket and rail members l4 and 15 respectively are contracted as to width when flanges l0 are pressed into shape and thus the width of the metal strips stamped from the blank sheet material for forming the spaces 23 between pickets is very very small as will be apparent.
Ports B are each provided with a pair of ground engaging anchor cross bars 24 comprising strips which may be scrap strips from the stamping of the post and fencing panels fabricated into channels. As shown in detail in Fig. 5, these bars are bowed midway of their lengths at 25 to engage the post over rib l3 and closely conform therewith and they are secured thereto by welding or by rivets 26 as indicated. When erected posts B are securely held in the ground by means of these cross bars 24 as indicated in Fig. 2.
I claim:
1. In a fence comprising a sheet metal post member of channel formation, provided with in tegral ears of channel formation extending laterally therefrom, and a fence panel member comprising reinforced horizontal rails of channel formation and integral picket members of channel formation, said rail members provided with ears similar to the ears on the post extending from the ends thereof, the ears of one of said members being reduced for engagement in the ears of the other member, and means. integrally connecting the said ears of the members so that the ears of the posts provide a continuation of the rails of the panel.
2. In a fence comprising a sheet metal post member of channel formation, provided with integral ears of channel formation extending laterally therefrom, and a fence panel. member comprising reinforced horizontal rails of channel formation and integral picket members of channel formation, said rail members provided: with ears similar to the ears on the post extending from the ends thereof, the ears of. one of. said members being reduced for engagement in the ears of the other member, and means integrally connecting the said ears of the members so that the ears of the posts provide a continuation of the rails of the panel, said post member and rails of said panel member each provided with longitudinally outwardly extending ribs.
