4 Claims. 1
Mylinvention relates to awnings'usedin conn'ection. with "building apertures; such as, winfidoW-s and doors, and has 'a special relation to =awnings"fabricated of metal "orrigid materials.
An important object of'my' invention is to provide an awning "of the above=mentioned character which is demountably'attachable by means of special attaching brackets, preferably to the trim of a window or door, so that the said "awnin}; maybe easily and quickly "mounted to, or
nemounted therefrom.
A furtherobject'o'f my invention is to provide 'a"met'al fabricated awning, the top apron of which is constructed of awning assembly units to permit individual awnings to be mounted 'on'any width of window'or door without the necessity of beingcustom-m'ade therefor, as isthe present practice for such awnings.
some, "streamlined appearance.
"A further object of my invention is to provide a metal'fabricated awning, the side aprons of which are constructed of vertical, 'metal slat strips'so-arra'nged to allow the i'free passage of air therebetween, while at the same timeserving as ashadefor 'direct sunlight.
A still-further object of my invention is to provide a metal'fabricated awning having an awning hood which acts as a seal against the elements, and 'is so positioned to permit the passageof air currents from below the awning to further prevent the trapping of heated air therein.
-A further object of my invention is to provide ametal fabricated awning thatmay-b'e painted, or enameled, to "any color, -'or combination-of colors, and'f-that may be economically manufactured in' large quantities.
Other-objects and advantages embraced in my invention'wil-l be disc'lose'din the following description and the accompanying illustrations in which'like parts are designated by-like numerals, andin which:
'Fig.- 'l is a perspective 'view of my invention with parts broken away; shown mounted on the trim of a window.
Fig. 2'is an 'enlarged cross secti'on'al view of a "portion of my invention taken substantially 'on line-22 on 'Fig. "1, and showing the assembly means of the top apron assembly units.
Fig; 3 is a cross-sectional View of-myi invention taken substantiallyon"line '.33 on Fi'g.-1.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary cross-sectional viewcf .my invention taken substantially 'on'line '44 on "Fig. 3.
'Fig. 5 is an enlarged'per'spective view of one of the top apronsupport brackets comprising an important "element of my invention.
Fig. 6 is a perspective view showingthem'ounting brackets of my invention mounted"'in;piace on the trim of a window,'and showingthe means of attaching 'my" metal fabricated awning thereto, and detaching it therefrom.
Referring to the illus'tr'a'tionj-my invention is generally designated 1 and consists of a "top apron structure 15 having a valance portion 36, side apron structure 39, anda hood element IS.
The said top apron structure 15 consists of end awning assembly units 9 and intennediate awning assembly units '8. The said end'awning assembly unit '9'consists of an-edging angleiiil, having a seamed edge "I I, which 'frictionally holds one of the flanged channel 'edge'ssi39of a channel strip l2. The other flanged :channel edge 39 "is frictionally held by :the 'seamed edge H of afiat or slatstrip i3 to theotherwedge of which a duallyiseamed connector strip itconnects asecondsimilar, but oppositely formed, flat strip- I3'. 'The intermediate *awning= a'ssem- 'bly units 8'iaresimi'larin constructionand assembly'withthe' above described end awning. assembly units 9, except for thezedgi-ng angles l0. Strengthening channels lfi'and I! are transversally mounted 'on the undersur-faceiof awn-- ing 1, as shown in Figs. 1 and2, and held by connector strip attaching screws 3'! tothe conhector strips I3.
An awning attaching channel l8 is .iastened on the underside at the inner'edge 0f the top of the'awning-apron -|5 by attaching screws 31, as shown in-Figsal and3. The said'sideaprons -33 :are constructed .of-.vertical ,strips '3l, alter- .nately and oppositely, attached'ito. apronv assemvblychannels 32 and .33. lflheedgestfl ofjthefsaid vstrips3l .are flanged, as shown in Figs."1 and, .with the strips 3| mounted "on'the outside of apron assembling channels "32 and '33, being flanged outwardly; whereas the slats 31 mounted on the inside of the said'apron assembling channe1s 3'2 and 33a re flanged inwardly to provide air spaces '4] "therebetween, "allowing air currents, designated 43, to flow freely .from =the confines of awning "l. The said strips -3l;-however, are
-so positioned, as shown-in Figs. 1,553 and 4, :1t0 prevent direct rays -of sunlight from. penetrating therethroughend to keep the train 'fthereircm. The upper side apron assembling channels 232 in assembledfipcsiti'on fit within the -"cdgirig :;angles II] on the two ends of top apron l5, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, and are held thereto by strip attaching screws 31.
The downwardly formed ends of strip channels l2 in the valance portion 36 of the top apron i are closed at 44, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, to give added rigidity to the said valance portion 36.
A number of top apron support brackets 20 are mounted and aligned at spaced intervals, preferably along the top trim of the window or door 29, as shown in Figs. 1, 3 and 6, by bracket attaching screws 2|.
An awning hood I9 is attached to hood attaching portion 23 of the said top apron support bracket 20, and is so positioned over the inner end of the top apron [5 to provide an air circulating space 42 therebetween, while serving as weather protection therefor. The said awning hood I9 is provided with an awning hood sealing portion, 34 which fits sealably against the trim, or siding, of the building, as shown in Figs; 1 and 3. The outer edge of the awning hood I9 is bent to provide a hood strengthening bead 35.
An adjustable awning holding element 25 is attached to awning holding portion 2d of bracket 20 by means of a screw and nut attaching means 21 through slot means 26. The ends of the adjustable awning holding element 25 are bent to form an awning grip portion 28. The side apron angle attaching brackets 45 are secured to window 29 by attaching screws 2 I, as shown in Figs. 1, 3, 4 and 6.
My metal fabricated awning l is assembled by frictionally engaging the seamed edges ll of ,a sufiicient number of the intermediate awning assembly units 8 with the two end awning assembly units 9 to provide an awning I of the proper window or door width, and the side aprons 38 are attached thereto in the manner hereinabove described.
To mount the said awning I on the window 29, the awning attaching channel [8 is slung in the awning grip portions 28 of top apron support brackets 20, and the side aprons 30 are secured to the side apron attaching brackets 45 by attaching screws 38, as shown in Fig. 6. To remove, or demount, my metal fabricated awning I,
jnate channel and strip assemblymeans of the j top' apron structure thereof provide the necessary strength and rigidity while adding to the handsome, stream-lined appearance of the awn- .ing. awning to be demounted for cleaning and paint- The simple attaching means permits the ing purposes, and the ventilated structure pre vents heated air from being trapped therein while serving as protection against the elements and direct sunlight. v
7 It is to be understood that changes may be made-in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims.
