Nov. 17, 1953 S. KAFLAN TUBULAR GATE Filed Feb. 16. 1951 c nvenioz 1 Jam o2an flf ggy v Patented Nov. 17, 1953 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 8 Claims.

My invention relates to gates and while it was designed more particularly for use in cattle yards,-

pastures and the like it can be used to close any passageway through a walled or fenced-in area.

Gates for cattle enclosures are usually considerably longer than their height dimension and this obviously puts a substantial strain on the hinged end when the gate is opened and closed. Because of this, these type gates will usually sag out of alignment and become very diflicult to manipulate. Likewise any latch devices used thereon will soon become useless.

With this problem in mind, it is the aim of my invention in general to provide a gate having a new type of structure on the end to receive the hinges so that it will be capable of being adequately and properly supported at all times.

More particularly my new gate structure is especially adapted for use on gates having a horizontal length substantially greater than its vertieal dimensions.

A further object of my invention is to provide a gate of the above class having a new hinge means designed for use thereon.

Still another object of my invention is to provide a gate having the above characteristics which is of all metal construction welded intoa single rigid unit requiring no repairs or maintenance.

Still another object of this invention is to provide a gate as above described that is light in weight and durable in use.

These and other objects will be apparent to those skilled in the art.

My invention consists in the construction, arrangement, and combination of the various parts of the device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of my gate showing the hinges in place and pivotally mounted on a supporting post,

Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of this gate taken on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1 and showing and. II, the side members formed by the top rail I2 and the bottom rail I3 as shown in Fig. 1. While any suitable material may be used for this gate, I preferably use aluminum tubing and integrally connect the sides and ends at the respective corners by the welds I 3a as illustrated. This provides a lightweight frame and the welded connections give added rigidity. Within the gate frame I place the reinforcing tubular support member I4 which is mounted adjacent the side It and extends between the top I2 and bottom I 3 as shown in Fig. 1. The respective opposite ends of the member I4 are integrally connected by welding Ida to the side members I2 and I3 and integrally connected by welds I4b between its ends to the end member I as illustrated. This for this gate.

makes an extremely strong gate end upon which to mount the hinges which I will later describe.

The numeral I5 designates a plurality of tubular reinforcing members arranged in relatively closely spaced parallel relationship and integrally connected as by welding I5a or the like at their respective opposite ends to the members II and I4. The spacer support members I6 are placed in alignment between the members I5 and substantially parallel to the end members II] and II and are each integrally joined at their respective opposite ends by welds I6a to the reinforcing members I5. Each of the members I5 and sup-- a much wider bearing surface for receiving a. hinge than other gates of similar character. To.

get the most benefit from this innovation I have made for use with this gate the hinge which is shown generally at II in Fig. 2 and which I will now describe. The body portion I8 of the hinge is U-shaped and preferably made from flat metal bar or strap material with its free end portions I9 and 2!! shaped in the form of a bolt and being threaded to receive the nuts 2| and 22. A bar member 23 having a depression or concave surface 24 on one side is designed to be mounted on the bolt-like ends I9 and and to be secured thereon by the nuts 2| and 22 as shown in Fig. 2.

The numeral designates an eye bearing member having a reduced neck portion 26 which is. welded to the U-portion of the bolt on the outer. side thereof and extending perpendicularly therefrom.

In mounting this hinge, its respective U-sides are designed to embrace both the end III and member I4 so that the bolt ends project out-. wardly therefrom. The bar member 23 is then placed on the bolt ends so that the depression 24 engages and conforms to the perimeter of the member I4. Then by applying the nuts 2| and 22 and tightening them inthe usual manner,

the hinge is securely mounted. Usually one such hinge is used at the upper portion of the gate and one at the lower portion although more than two can obviously be used if necessary.

Thus constructed and arranged the eye bearing members 25 can be pivotally mounted on the: lugs 21 or the like secured to a supporting member which I have illustrated by the post 28.

It is pointed out that the hinge I'I embraces and engages not only one-half of the end member IE but together with the bar member 23 it embraces and engages substantially one-half of the member [4 so that a maximum bearing surface is utilized on the tubular structure used No holes are drilled in the gate 3 itself for bolts or the like nor are screws placed therein so that the full strength of the gate is unimpaired. The gate with hinges mounted may be completely removed for transportation or storage, if desired, without disassembly of any portion and without the use of any tools.

Some changes may be made in the construction and arrangements of my gate without departing from the real spirit and purpose of my invention, and it is my intention to cover by my claims, any modified forms of structure or use of mechanical equivalents which may be reasonably included within their scope.

I claim:

1. A gate of substantially rectangular form composed of a pair of tubular end members and a pair of tubular side members integrally connected at the respective corners, a plurality of relatively closely spaced parallel tubular reinforcing members integrally joined at their respective opposite ends to said end members, and a plurality of tubular spacer support members arranged between said reinforcing members in alignment and substantially parallel to said end members and each integrally joined at their respective ends to said reinforcing members.

2.
