Patented May 29, 1951 v UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE V WINDOW STRUCTURE Claud 0. Sure, Kirksville, M0.

Application December 23, 1946, Serial No. 719,939

v 1 Claim. 1

This invention relates to window structure and has for its primary aim the provision of an unique hinging assembly for a casement swingable to and from a position closing an opening in a wall of a building or the like.

The most important object of this invention is to provide window structure having a casement swingable to and from a position closing a pol'yg onal opening through the medium of a flexible strip of material extending the entire length of the uppermost edge of said casement and joining a frame or the like defining said opening to the end that said flexible hinge member also serves as a protection or cover for the casement against entrance of moisture thereto.

Another important object of this invention is to provide window structure having a casement swingable to and from a closed positionthrough the medium of the above described continuous stri of flexible material provided with a resilient strip of material interposed between the easement and the frame defining the opening which said casement closes, said strip of resilient material having an offset bead engageable by the case-'- ment when the same is in the closed positionv for presenting a positive seal against entrance of moisture through said opening.

Another important object of this invention is to provide in window structure having the aforesaid beaded strip of sealing material as a part thereof, a flanged or L-shaped band for holding said material in place against the frame and having one leg thereof disposed in embracing relation with a portion of the casement to the end that the said casement is provided with a positive guide frame when in the closed position.

Other objects of this invention will be made clear during the course of the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, wherein:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the window structure made in accordance with my present invention.

Fig. 2 is an elevational view thereof.

Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken on line III-III of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 4 is a cross sectional View taken on line IV-IV of Fig. 3 and looking in the direction of the arrows.

It is contemplated that the window structure about to be described be primarily adaptable for use on trailers or the like usually formed from a light weight material such as aluminum presenting a difficult problem of mounting suitable window opening means therefor.

' a part Of a Side Wall I8 anddefini'ng' a polygonal opening 20 in the'side wall l8.-

Th means for hiiig'edly' securing the easement Hi to the frame I6 to the end that the said casement is rendered swingable to and from a closed position overlying the opening 20' comprises an elongated strip of flexible material 22 extending the entire length of the easement l0 and ashort distance beyond each end thereof as is clear in Fig. 1. This hinge member may be formed from any of many types of material and it i contemplated that aluminum be used to conform with the same type of material forming. a part of the said walls l8 of the structure to which this as' sembly' is to be used. r

Fig. 3 clearly illustrates the manner in which this member 22 has a pair of offset portions 24 and 25 at each longitudinal d e thereof respectively and when so formed these portions 24 and 26 are in substantiall parallel relation and screws or the like 28 and 30 constitute means for securing portions 24 and 26 respectively to the uppermost edges of the casement l0 and the frame l6. Prior to securing portion 26 to the frame l6 through the medium of its screws 30, a strip of resilient material such as rubber or the like 32, is interposed between this portion 26 of the member 22 and the frame IE or the outermost face of wall I8 previously secured to the frame l6.

It is clear from the foregoing that casement I0 is thereby rendered swingable to and from the open position shown by dotted lines in Fig. 3 and that rain or other moistur will not enter and come into contact with the uppermost edge of casement ID or the wall I8 adjacent thereto.

A tooth bar 34 pivotally secured to the lowermost member of frame l2 through the medium of a bracket 36 provides means for adjustably holding the casement II] in any number of open positions by the teeth of bar 34 engaging an L-shaped bracket 38 on the lowermost edge of the frame l6. Interposed between the frame l2 of casement l0 and extending the entire length thereof, is a strip of resilient material 40 which is beaded as is clear in Figs. 2 and 3 and this strip 40 is rigidly secured to the wall l8 by a number of screws or the like 42 and disposed with the bead thereof in engagement with casement l when the same is in the closed position. As frame l2 of casement l0 depresses this strip 40, a positive seal against moisture entering at the ends of the hinge member 22 is presented. The remaining three edges of the casement l0 and the opening 20 is provided with a strip of rubber or other resilient material 44 molded to present an offset bead 46 along the innermost longitudinal edge thereof. This strip 44" is held in place against the frame [6 through the medium of a band 48.

, embraced by said channel member and bearing This band 48 extends continuously along each of the sides of casement l0 and along the lowermost longitudinal edge thereof and is substantially L-shaped in cross sectional contour. One leg of this band 48 has a number of openings therethrough for receiving screws or the like 50 extending through the material 44 and into the proximal lengths forming frame [6. When so positioned, the bead 46 of the strip of material 44 is disposed inwardly from the innermost edge of the band 48 and when the easement II] is in the closed position, this bead 46 is interposed between frame [2 and the side wall l8.

The other leg of this band 48 which extends against all of said beads; a hinge for the casement, said hinge comprising a single, elongated, strip of flexible, non-elastic, material and having an elongated upper marginal edge portion laterally outwardly from the leg having screws 50 therethrough, circumscribes a portion of the outermost edge of the casement l0 and further assures a sealing of the opening 20 against entrance of external moisture.

The foregoing description of the window structure forming a part of this invention makes it clear that through use of the strip 40, the strip of material 44 having head 46 as a part thereof, the flange-like band 48 and the hinge member 22 with its resilient material 32 presents a closure assembly which is virtually air-tight and positively moisture proof.

While this structure is particularly adapted for use on trailers having light weight metal bodies as above set forth, it is understood that the same may well be used in other types of building structures and it is therefore, desired to be limited only by the spirit of the invention and scope of the appended claim.

Having thus described the invention, What is secured to the frame directly above said resilient member, an opposed elongated lower marginal edge portion secured to the outermost face of the easement adjacent the uppermost edge of the latter and an elongated, transversely inclined central portion integral with the marginal portions and overlying the uppermost edge of the easement, said strip being horizontal longitudinally and the marginal edge portion thereof being normally vertical transverselyi and a rubber gasket interposed between said upper edg portion and the frame.

- CLAUD O. SORRELL.
