Description

May 4, 1954 W. H. STEFANAKIS COMBINATION STORM WINDOW AND VENTILATOR Filed April 14. 1953 Patented May 4, 1954 UNED STATES PATENT OFFICE COMBINATION STORM WINDOW AND VENTILATOR 3 Claims.
This invention relates to windows.
It is an object of the present invention to provide a double action combination louvre window and storm panel.
It is another object of the present invention to provide a combination louvre window and storm panel having an inside ventilator adapted to be simultaneously opened with the outside louvres.
It is another object of the present invention to provide a combination window and storm panel of the above type which will provide fresh air in the house while the windows are locked, thus preventing children from falling out, and to provide protection from burglars at night.
It is still another object of the present invention to provide an improved attachment for connecting the outside louvre window with the inside vent, causing the inside vent to open simultaneously with the outside louvre window on the same mechanism.
Other objects of the present invention are to provide a combination window and storm panel bearing the above objects in mind which is of simple construction, inexpensive to manufacture, has a minimum number of parts, is easy to install and eiiicient in operation.
For other objects and a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:
Figure 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of a combination window, storm panel and ventilator embodying the features of the present invention;
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view taken along the line 22 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary transverse sectional view taken along the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.
Referring now more in detail to the drawing, in which similar reference numerals identify corresponding arts throughout the several views, there is shown a window sill ll! integrally formed with an upwardly extending ridge ll along the longitudinal side thereof closest to the interior of the house. A pair of stationary bars 12 are suitably mounted above sill ill at each side thereof by means of right angle ends 13, substantially as illustrated. A plurality of glass louvres I4 are mounted in vertically spaced relation between the fixed bars 12 by means or U-shaped brackets 15 and pins It, the brackets l being secured to the opposite lateral edges of louvres It by means of pins 17. As shown in Fig. 3, the pins 18 are fixedly carried by the back portions of clamps i5 and rotate in suitable openings provided in the fixed bars :I 2.
A storm panel It is mounted in the usual manner on the inner side of louvres I l and terminates above the sill ID in a vent opening, the lower edge of panel 18 being provided with a border 5 strip l9 secured in place by putty 25.
The inner edge of ridge I! is beveled as at 2| for a purpose which will hereinafter become clear. A substantially L-shaped bracket 22 is secured to the inner corners of each louvre I4 by means of pins 23, substantially as illustrated. The vertical portions of clamps 22 at each end of louvres Hare pivotally connected to an elongated bar 24 by means of pins 25, the lower end of each bar 24 being integrally formed with a laterally extending portion 25 terminating in a flange 21, as
shown in Fig. 1. It will be noted that the flange 21 of each bar 24 is disposed within the vent opening intermediate sill Ill and border strip 19.
A glass vent panel 28 is .adapted to fit snugly intermediate strip It and ridge i i and is secured to the flanges 21 by means of screws 29, substantially as illustrated.
Thus, when the louvres I l are disposed in the relationship shown in Fig. 2 by means of an operating handle, not shown, the bars 24 will move downwardly and down toward the panel or storm window it, causing the glass vent panel 28 to move from the dotted line position of Fig. 2 to the full line position following the arrow shown 30 therein. Thus, when the glass louvres M are opened, the glass vent panels 28 will simultaneously be opened. When the louvres M are closed, the bars 24 will move upwardly and away from the storm panel [8, bringing the glass vent panel to the dotted line position of Fig. 2, thus simultaneously closing the vent opening as the louvres are closed.
While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claims.
Having thus set forth and disclosed the nature of my invention, what is claimed is:
1. In a combination louvre window and storm stantially vertical, elongated bars pivotally connected to the vertical portion of each of said L-shaped brackets, the lower ends of said bars each having a laterally extending portion extending through the vent opening and terminating in lateral flanges, and a glass vent secured at each end to said lateral flanges. said. glass vent being adapted to fit snugly into the vent opening whereby to close the same when the glass louvres are in a closed position.
2. In a combination louvre window and storm panel having a vent opening below the storm panel, a plurality of substantially U-shaped brackets secured to each lateral end of each louvre, a longitudinally extending pin fixedly carried at the back of each of said U-shaped brackets, a pair of elongated stationary bars mounted alongside each end of the louvres, said elongated bars having laterally aligned openings receiving said pins, a second plurality of substantially L-shaped brackets secured to each inner corner of each of the glass louvres and having downwardly extending arms, a pair of elongated, movable bars pivot-ally connected to the downwardly extending portions of each of said L- shaped brackets, laterally extending portions integrally formed in the lower ends of said movable bars, said laterally extending portions extending through the vent opening and terminating in flange-s substantially parallel to the storm panel, a glass vent panel secured to said flanges and adapted to fit snugly within the vent opening when the glass louvres are closed.
3. An attachment for connecting an outside louvre window with an inside vent comprising a plurality of brackets of substantially U-shaped cross section adapted to fit on to the opposite lateral edges of each of the glass louvres, means for securing said brackets to said louvres, a pin at the back of each of said brackets, a pair of elongated stationary bars mounted adjacent each lateral end of the louvres and having openings adapted to rotatably receive said revolving pins. and a plurality of substantially L-shaped brackets secured to the inner corners of each of the glass louvres and presenting downwardly extending portions, 2. pair of elongated movable bars pivotally connected along their length to each of said downwardly extending portions, the lower ends of said movable bars terminating in laterally extending portions extending inwardly through the bent opening, said laterally extending portions terminating in flanges extending parallel to the storm panel, and a glass vent panel fixedly connected to said flanges and adapted to fit snugly within the vent opening when the glass louvres are closed.
