BLOCK ASSEMBLY Filed Deo. 17, 1947 JNVENTOR. SQMUEL 5. LEVY HTTO/QNE Y Patented Feb. 3, l1953 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE BLOCK ASSEMBLY `Samuel S. Levy, Paterson, N. J.

Application December 17,1947, Serial No. 792,206

(Cl. 'Y2-42) 9 Claims. 1

My invention relates to block assemblies and more particularly to the construction of building walls Aor the like wherein precast blocks are employed,

One of the objects of my invention is to provide a method and/or means wherein precast building blocks may be assembled to form a desired structure and locked one to the other in a manner to resist Vvertical displacement.

Another object of my invention is to provide a structure of the foregoing described character which is easy of assembly and does not require the services of highly skilled workmen.

A further object `of my invention is to provide a vstructure of the foregoing described character wherein the wall of a building or the like may be assembled in units and the units 'connected together by concrete to form a unitary structure resistant to vertical displacement.

An important object f my invention is to pro- Vide means of the foregoing described character which is simple in construction, durable in use, and economical with respect to fabrication.

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:

2--2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a sectional View taken on the line A3--3 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a fragmentary perspective view of one of the gaskets and illustrating a bolt 'and nut disposed in cooperating relation therewith.

In practicing my invention, as illustrated in the drawing, I utilize building blocks, for instance, of the types known as cinder blocks which are constructed in full and half sizes, with respect to length, and herein identied as full and half blocks 5 and 6, respectively. The blocks are arranged in courses disposed and supported upon a single course or foundation 1 of concrete to constitute a wall unit, the blocks of each course being arranged in end to end relation and with the faces of the blocks defining the ends of the jacent gasket I2.

courses terminating in aligned relation. In the present instance, the blocks of alternate courses comprise a ternary of full blocks 5, while the blocks of the intermediate courses comprise a pair of spaced half blocks 6 with a pair of full blocks 5 interposed therebetween, whereby, the joints, occasioned by the confronting faces of adjacent blocks, of one course are disposed in staggered relation with the joints of the adjacent courses. This arrangement of the blocks also `serves to provide the unit with courses of substantially equal lengths.

A plurality of the units are employed to provide a section A of the wall of a building or the like, the wall, in the present instance and for the purposes of disclosure, being provided `with a similar section B extending at `a right-angle to the section A at one end of the latter. The units are disposed in spaced relation and are connected together by concrete constituting pillars or columns 8 united with the foundation l. Each of the blocks 5 is fashioned, between its ends, with a plurality of transversely elongated openings 9 while each of the blocks 6 is fashioned with a similarly shaped single and central opening I0. The blocks are formed on each end face with a channel of a shape that, when disposed in confronting relation with a similar channel in the end face of an adjacent block, provides an opening of a shape coinciding with the openings 9 and II). rhe channels of the outer faces of the -end blocks of the courses receive the concrete introduced between the units .to form the pilllars or columns 8 for anchoring thereto.

Disposed -between the courses and the lowermost course 4and'tfne foundation 1, are sheets or plates of perforated and somewhat corrugated metallic sheathing constituting elongated compressible metallic reinforcing gaskets I2 having -end portions extending into the pillars 8 for anchorage thereto. The perfcrations I3 of the gaskets are elongated while their end portions, which extend into the pillar between the sections A and B, are mitered. Each of the outermost end openings 9 and the central openings Il) of the block' and 6 has disposed therein the upper end of an anchor-bolt I4, the latter extending through a registering perforation I3 of the sub- The bolt I4 has sleeved thereon and in engagement with `the gasket I2, a washer I5 engaged by a frustrum-shaped nut I6 threaded on the upper end and which nut I6 is formed with a transverse opening Il. The lowermost bolts Yllt extend into and are set in the foundation 'I and are provided, at their lower ends, with retainers I8, while the remaining bolts I4 are each bent at its lower end to provide a right-angularly extending finger I9 disposed through the opening I'I of the nut I6 of a subjacent bolt for connecting vertical series of the bolts together. As illustrated in the drawings, side faces of the blocks and pillars are provided with an overall layer 20 of topping or finishing concrete to lend a neat and attractive appearance to the structure and to conceal the various components thereof.

In use-assuming the foundation has been laid and the lowermost bolts I4 embedded therein with their upper ends extending through perforations in a row of gaskets I2 disposed over the upper face of the foundation 'I and which bolts are provided, at their upper ends, with washers I and nuts I6, the latter being tightened to securely anchor the gaskets to the foundationcourses of blocks and gaskets are successively and alternately disposed one above the other on the foundation with the bolts of the vertical series extending through each course of the blocks and the gaskets, each bolt having its lower end connected to a subjacent nut and its upper end provided with a washer and nut disposed over a gasket in anchored relation therewith to maintain the courses thus assembled in connected relation to the foundation. As the courses are assembled, the nuts are tightened upon their respective bolts to clamp the subjacent course of gaskets to the subjacent course of blocks and, inasmuch as the gaskets are somewhat compressible due to their corrugated construction, the blocks will be secured in tension engagement with the gaskets and thus present an extremely rigid construction which is resistant to vertical displacement. Forms of a desired character, for instance boards, are initially employed and secured to the side faces of the blocks between the units and concrete is then introduced between the units to for-m the pillars 8. When the concrete, forming the pillars, has become set, the forms are removed and the layer 2o of topping or finishing concrete is applied to the side faces of the blocks and pillars to provide the aforementioned neat and attractive appearance and to conceal the various components of the structure.

In view of the foregoing, it will be apparent that one of the wall units may be utilized without additional units or pillars and that, in the fabrication of a wall, each of the units are of a sufficient rigidity, when secured to the foundation by the bolts, to be maintained in upright position against displacement without the use of pillars. K

Inasmuch as the gaskets are provided with longitudinal uniform side edges, the blocks may be assembled upon the gaskets with their side faces in flush relation with the side edges of the gaskets, thus enabling unskilled Workmen to align the blocks without the use of instruments or lines.

Without further 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 conned 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 '4 invention is not limited to the specific construction as illustrated and described, as the same is only illustrative of the principles involved which are capable of extended application in various forms, and the invention comprehends all construction within the scope of the appended claims.
