1 Claim. 1
This invention relates to a packaged roll of sheet material and particularly to a novel packaged roll of floor covering such as linoleum or linoleum rugs.
One object of the invention is to provide a novel packaged roll of sheet material such as floor covering, embodying a container for accessories which may be useful in the laying and maintenance thereof, which may be manufactured at minimum expense and is capable of being shipped with minimum liability of injury or damage to the floor covering or other sheet material and the accessories therefor.
A further object of the invention is to provide a novel form of shipping container within which the floor covering in roll form and the accessories may be safely shipped and which enables the accessories to be conveniently removed by the customer when the floor covering is to be laid.
With these general objects in view and such others as may hereinafter appear, the invention consists in the novel packaged roll of floor covering or other sheet material embodying a container for the accessories, and in the shipping container itself, hereinafter described and particularly defined in the claim at the end of this specification.
In the drawings I have illustrated the invention as embodied in different forms of a packaged roll of floor covering embodying the accessory container, wherein Fig. 1 is a view in side elevation with portions in section showing one end of the present packaged roll of floor covering and illustrating the accessory container; Fig. 2 is a section on the line 22 of Fig. 1; Figs. 3, 4 and 5 are views in side elevation partly in section of one end portion of different packaged rolls of floor covering embodying the invention; Fig. 6 is a view in cross section illustrating both ends of a packaged roll of floor covering embodying an accessory container; Fig. 7 is a side elevation with portions in section of one end of still another form of packaged roll of floor covering embodying the accessory container, and Fig. 3 is a sectional view of still another form of packaged roll of floor covering embodying the accessory container and illustrating both ends of the roll.
In general, the present invention contemplates the provision of a novel packaged roll of floor covering or other sheet material embodying a container for those accessories which may be used in the laying and maintenance of the floor covering. The invention contemplates a con struction of package which not only affords efficient protection for the roll of floor covering during shipment and handling, but also enables accessories to be shipped therein in a convenient and accessible manner and one in which the liability of injury or damage during shipment to both the floor covering and the accessories is reduced to a minimum. Accordingly, a roll of floor covering or other sheet material to be shipped is enclosed within a tubular shipping member. The ends of the tubular shipping member are closed by end closures and provision is made for forming a separate container for the accessories within and at one end of the tubular shipping member. The accessory container may be formed in various ways and may be secured or attached to either the end closure or to the body of the tubular shipping member, depending upon the construction of the accessory con tainer.
Referring now to the drawing I have illustrated various forms of a packaged roll of floor covering embodying the invention and of a shipping container for both the roll of floor covering and the accessories, and as illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2, one embodiment of the invention comprises the roll it of floor covering around the cylindrical surface of which a heavy paper or fibrous wrapping I2 is wound, preferably to provide the roll with several plies of the wrapper. The ends 13 of the wrapper preferably project beyond the ends of the roll of floor covering, and as shown in Fig. 1, the projecting ends iii are folded down flat against the ends of the roll of floor cover ing and the end closure is made by an additional disk is of heavier fiber board or the like, which may be glued or otherwise adhesively secured to the outer surface of the previously folded ends of the wrapper. In order to form a container within which may be enclosed accessories such as waxes, cleaners, paste, cement, and other articles normally used for the maintenance and laying of the floor covering, a separate container I B is formed and frictionally secured to the inner surface of the roll of floor covering. As herein shown, the container it comprises a cup-shaped container of fiber board or the like having its bottom wall It provided with a plurality of 20 spaced peripherally about the bottom wall l3 and having the top wall 2! removabiy secured in place, and also preferably provided with a plurality of spaced peripheral flanges or tabs 22. In the manufacture of the container itself these flanges are died out or otherwise formed to flare outwardly beyond the body portion of the container, and when the container with the accessories therein has been introduced into the end of the opening formed within the roll of floor covering, the outwardly flaring flanges 29, 22 serve to frictionally engage and hold the container in the position shown in Fig. 1 adjacent one end of the packaged roll of floor covering, so that in effect the inner container is secured to and forms a substantial integral part of the completed package.
In the form of the invention illustrated in Fig. 3 the outer tubular shipping container may comprise a preformed and relatively heavy fibrous tube 26 which may, for convenience of introducing the roll of floor covering therein, be formed in halves in accordance with the present day practice, and the half sections are successively slipped over one end of the roll of floor covering, and the end closures for the tube 26 may comprise a reenforcing fibrous ring 28 of multi plies of paper adhesively secured and pressed together, and which may be stapled or otherwise secured to the end portion of the shipping tube, as shown in Fig. 3. The closure disk enclosing the end portion of the packaged roll of floor covering may comprise a fiber disk 3B glued or otherwise secured to the inner face of the reenforcing ring, and as shown in Fig. 3, provision is made for securing a fluid tight container 32 in fixed relation upon the inner face of the end closure disk as. Conveniently the container 32 may comprise a bottle having a screw cap or closure therefor, both being of a size to permit their introduction into the space within the roll of floor covering, thus providing a container within the packaged roll of floor covering within which may be shipped not only the usual accessories if desired but also any fluid cement, fluid wax, or the like, which the customer may find use ful in the maintenance and laying of the floor covering. In practice the screw closure or cap of the bottle or container may and preferably will be adhesively afiixed to the face of the. end closure disk by any of the more efficient resinous adhesives now upon the market and by which the cover may be securely attached to the face of the disk so as to permit the disk and the container to be inserted in operative position prior to the insertion of the reenforcing ring and prior to the stapling thereof to the projecting end portion of the body of the shipping container itself.
In Fig. 4 I have illustrated a type of accessory container similar to that shown in Fig. 3 and which may be secured to the inner face of the end closure disk 34 in a structure wherein the protective tubular member 36 enclosing the cylindrical roll of the fioor covering comprises a plurality of layers of strong paper, the end portions of which are folded over the end of the floor covering, as shown in Fig. 4, prior to the application and gluing of the end closure disk 34 to the inwardly turned faces of the wrapper.
In Fig. I have illustrated another modification of the invention wherein the roll of floor covering is enclosed within a fibrous tube id comprising preferably a relatively stiff fibrous tube. The tube is made longer than the length of roll of floor covering which is to be enclosed therein so as to provide a space at one end of the tube within which a cup-shaped member 4'32 of fiber, metal or other material, may be inserted. The open end of the cup-shaped member 42 is closed by a disk 44 which may be of fiber, metal or other suitable material, and is 4 held in place by a crimped in end portion 46 of the outer tube. As clearly shown in Fig. 5, the crimped portion 46 engages the closure disk and firmly holds the cup-shaped container 42 against the end face of the roll of floor covering so as to prevent movement of the container during shipment. When the packaged roll of floor covering embodying the accessory container is delivered to the customer, the crimped end portion 45 may be folded outwardly and the accessory container conveniently removed.
In Fig. 6 I have illustrated another modification of the invention wherein the outer protective tube within which the roll of floor covering is enclosed comprises a stiff fibrous tube is intentionally made of greater length than the length of roll of floor covering, and within the end space 50 thus provided, I form an accessory container by introducing into the space a fibrous retaining ring 52 which may be stapled as shown to the fibrous outer tube 48 in a position to hold a closure disk 54 against the end wall of the roll of floor covering, as shown. The disk 54 may and preferably will be adhesively secured to the inner face of the retaining ring 52. A similar retaining ring 56 having a closure disk 58 adhesively secured to the inner face thereof is preferably stapled in the position shown in Fig. 6 to the fibrous shipping tube 48 to form an end closure for the tubular mem ber 43 and to provide a space between the disks 5% and 58 within which the accessories may be conveniently shipped.
In Fig. '7 still another modification of the invention is shown wherein the roll of floor covering is enclosed Within a fibrous tube 66 which may be formed on a mandrel by spirally winding and adhesively affixing a series of plies of heavy fibrous sheets to form the tube. The end of the tube is preferably coextensive with the end of the roll of floor covering and the end closure is made by a cup-shaped fibrous cover member 64 which is snugly fitted over and may be adhesively secured to the end of the fibrous tube 60.
The cover member has glued or otherwise secured to the inner face thereof a preformed fibrous carton or container within which the accessories may be shipped so that when the cover member is placed upon the end of the fibrous tube and adhesively secured thereto, the accessory container 66 is disposed within the end portion of the roll of floor covering and retained in fixed relation to'the shipping tube til so as to retain the accessories for shipment within the protective tube Eli and at the same time to permit convenient removal of the carton 66 when the cover member 64 is removed.
In Fig. 8 I have illustrated still another modification of the invention wherein one end of the protective wrapper 10 which may comprise a strong flexible paper wrapper in one or more plies and which is wound about the roll of floor covering, is arranged to extend over and be folded down upon the outer face of a cylindrical prefabricated container 12. which is cylindrical in shape and of the dimensions of the floor covering so as to form in effect an extension of the roll of floor covering. The container '12 may comprise a body portion 13, open at its outer end and having a cover member 14 snugly fitted thereover as shown in Fig. 8. The final end closure is preferably made by an end plate or disk 16 which is glued or otherwise secured to the central portion of the cover member 14, as
U shown, so that the inwardly folded ends of the wrapper are securely held in place by the closure disk 16. This affords a convenient structure which may be used with advantage whenever it is desired to use a flexible wrapping as the protective member 10 of the shipping container. The second end of the package may be formed by a similar closing disk 18 which is adhesively secured to the inwardly turned ends 80 of the wrapper as indicated in Fig. 8.
From the description thus far it will be observed that in the several difierent modifications of the invention, the structures embody individual containers for the accessories which may be shipped with the packaged floor covering or other covering sheet, and the structures are such that the accessory containers are maintained in fixed relation to the remainder of the package during shipment, while enabling the customer to conveniently open the package and remove the accessories prior to the removal of the floor covering from the protective shipping container. The structures lend themselves to economical manufacture and assembly and may be used with advantage in shipping the various types of floor coverings such as linoleum, both in sheet form and in the form of rugs, as well as other sheetlike material which may be used for covering various surfaces.
As used throughout the claim, the term tubuclosing said roll in tightly fitting relation and extending beyond the roll at each end, end closure members snugly fitted entirely within and disposed transversely of and secured to the extended end portions for closing the ends of said protective container, each end closure comprising a relatively thick reinforced fiber ring snugly fitted within the respective ends or the container, fastening means extending through the wall of the protective container into said ring, and a circular disk adhesively secured to the inner end of each ring, the outer ends of said relatively thick fiber rings being arranged substantially flush with the extended ends and serving to reinforce the ends of the container to prevent damage to the ends of the roll of sheet material, and a similar intermediate closure member fitted within and secured to one of said extended ends in spaced relation to the adjacent end closure and forming with the latter and the walls of said one extended end an individual container for receiving accessories useful in the laying and maintenance of the surface covering sheet material, the inner disk portions of the intermediate closure member and the opposed end closure member being in contiguous engagement with adjacent ends of the roll of sheet material.
