Application June 29, 1948, Serial N 0. 35,943

2 Claims.

An object of this invention is to provide a sectional mattress holder of novel construction adapted to conveniently hold mattress sections in a manner which will permit of convenient removal and interchange of the mattress section units from time to time, and for the securing of the holder to a spring unit, or article of furniture, or the like. 7

A further object of the invention is to provide a sectional mattress holder of unique construction which will permit of the ready interchange of the sectional mattress units to compensate for unequal wear in use.

A further object of the invention is to provide a sectional mattress holder having means secured to the medial section thereof to provide for the expansion of said section to compensate for the greater wear thereof in use.

These and other advantageous objects, which will appear from the drawings, and from the description hereinafter, are accomplished by the structure of my invention, of which an embodiment is illustrated in the drawings. It will be apparent, from a consideration of said drawings, and the following description, that the invention may be embodied in other forms suggested thereby, and such other forms as come within the scope of the appended claims are to be considered within the scope and purview of the instant invention.

In the drawings:

Fig. l is a perspective view of a plurality of mattress sections adapted to be used in connection with the holder of my invention,

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a sectional mattress holder of my invention, the end compartment casings thereof being shown in elevated position, the mattress holder being shown applied to a coil spring unit.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of an object of furniture to which the sectional mattress holder of Fig. 2 may be secured,

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the sectional mattress holder, shown secured to said object,

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a sectional mattress holder embodying my invention, provided with a medial section expansion chamber,

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of an expansion devi a apted to be pos tioned said media secopenings 2|, 22 and 23.

tion expansion chamber, and Fig. 7 is a vertical sectional view, taken on line 'I--'I of Fig. 5.

Fig. 8 is a vertical sectional view of a modified form of the invention.

As shown in the drawings, the sectional mattress holder of my invention comprises an elongated rectangular flexible top Wall sheet II of a length II-II equal to the length of a sectional mattress. A plurality of compartmentcasings I2, I3, I4 are pendant from the top wall sheet II. Said top wall sheet constitutes the top of each of said compartment casings, the latter being'adapted to receive the mattress sections I5, I 6 and I I. The mattress sections I5, I6 and I! are adapted to be interchanged in the compartment casings for the purpose of neutralizing the wear on the respective mattress sections according to their disposition within the holder. Each of the compartment casings I 2, I3 and I4 has end, side and bottom walls, the sheet II, as above noted, constituting the top wall of the compartments. The sheet II is longitudinally divided by transverse hinge lines Ila, III), which facilitate bending said sheet alongsaid lines, disposed in line with the side walls I9; IQ, of the center casing I3. The hinge lines IIa, Ilb may be formed by sewing or similar reinforcing expedients, which will give greater body to the sheet II along said lines, to facilitate bending same as above noted.

The end, side and bottom walls of the compartment casings I2, I3 and I4 are preferably formed of flexible material and are so proportioned relative to the mattress sections I5 to be received therein that the latter will be very snugly received in the casings and will, in fact, cause the casings to bulge slightly. As the top' wall sheet I I is unitary with said casings, the casings I2, I3 and I4, when filled, will have tight abutment with each other, and thus preclude accidental displacement of the parts. The mattress sections I 5, I6 and I! may be made of any desired or convenient yieldable material; they may have springs incorporated therein; they may be filled with soft rubber or other cushioning material, if desired.

The compartment casing I2 is of generally rectangular outline and is provided with end walls I8, I8, side walls I9, I9, and bottom wall 23. The compartment casings are provided with A base sheet'24, of a length and width equal to the length and width of the top wall sheet I l, is secured to and pendant from the bottom wall of the casing I3 and is provided with a marginal depending flange 25 whereby the sectional mattress holder II] may be secured to a support such as a coil or flat spring section 32 (Fig. 2), or to an article of furniture 2% (Fig. 3). The depending flange 25 may be secured to the support 26 or 32 by zippers, tacks or other securing means.

The base sheet 24 is longitudinally divided by hinge lines 24a, 242) which facilitate bending the said sheet along said lines. Said lines may be formed by sewing or similar expedients, which will give greater body to said sheet along said lines, to facilitate-bending said sheet. The hinge: lines 24a, 241) are disposed in line with theside walls l9, l5 of the center casing 13. Thus, the device is admirably adapted for special uses, such as in connection with a Gatch typeofi hnspitak bed, having a mattress support and mechanism for varying the relative horizontal disposition of portions of the mattress, for the. comtont. at the patient.

The medial portion of a mattress is subjected to the greatest weight and wear in use. Sooner or: later; the mattress sags: in the center:. For the purpose of overnoming the:v sagging-1. effect noted, in the: term of; invention. illustrated in Figs. 5-7, I provide the eentencasing. with. am intemali lower chamber 21 adapted; to: receive an expansion. device, the latter being adapted: to be expanded: upwardly to thesdesiredr degree from time: tortime,. to; restore: the: sagged center off the. mattress to its original upperline. Any expane si'on. device may be: used for: the: purpose.

The device may be used; in connection: with the.- Gatch typeof; hospital; beds wherein the compartment casings I 2 i3= and 14: may; be an!- gularly adjustedzby means or? a crank. In many cases-,, it isdesirable: to have: the compartment. casing I 2 end. of the: mattress-elevated.with the compartment casing i=4 end. of; the mattress depressed. Eor'tha-tpurpose,. a: special. form as the device may be used. namely; that showrrim Fig; in which: case; the top wall sheet. I I may form: the top wall of; the: casings IL: and: [:3; andi the bottom wallof thecasing: 14,. with transversely reenforced hinge'line l lc;

The device oi the invention maybema'de Without the sheet 2%- or the expansion. device; 28,. desired.

The. invention may be applied to uphoistered. furniture, such. as sotas, divans; studio? couei'lessofa. beds, Hollywood: beds, or: other upholstered. objectsused for sleeping; resting. or'seating purposes; It will; be. apparent that by lifting the: base: sheet 24. off. support 32,. immediate access: to: the underlying. spring or; other support- 32' be had. By tilting the sections l2 and [4, as shown in Fig. 2, to describe a generally triangular outline, the mattress may be readily aired and cleaned. The device of the invention will maintain its position on the spring or frame 26 against accidental displacement by virtue of the engagement of depending flange of cover 24 with the spring or other support.

The drawings illustrate an expansion device 23 tor the purpose of overcoming? any tendency of the mattress to sag at the center, comprising, essentially, a sheet of flexible material provided with marginal plates 29 and with manually openable means 30 engaging said plates to draw them together and to arch the sheet 28 to the desired degree.

The. chamber 21: may have an opening 3| at one end, which may be closed by zipper, or other suitableclosure means.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim: as: new: and; desire to: secureby Letters Patent is:

l. sectibnal: mattress; holder comprising are elongated rectangular flexihlez topwall member of a; length equal! to the length ox". the sectionali a. base: sheet secured; tot oneor. said: compartment.

casings: and. having-J a. marginal. depending; flange;

2; A; sectional. mattress holder comprising; an: elongated: rectangular flexible; tnp walk member; compartment casings secured". to. said top: Wall member, each of said casings having end. and. side walls: secured: to said top wall member and a bottom: wall secured: to: saidien'd and. side walls, and. a; base. sheet; seemed. to one of said casingsg. said sheet being of alengthl equal. to that of said: elongated top Walk member and; a. 1:11amginal' depending: flanges.
