1 12 Claims.

The present invention relates to inside-outside metal trim for window openings, and more par ticularly to metal trim adapted to be assembled on the job and inserted as a unit into a rough Window opening.

Itis an object of the present invention to provide inside-outside metal trim of the character described designed tofacilitate forming, assembly, and mounting of the trim.

Itis a further object of the present inven-.

tion to provide trim of the character described which is attractive in appearance, easy to mount in a rough window opening, and is designed to serve as the supporting means for a sash frame.

It is a feature of the present invention to pro-.

vide inside-outside metal trim composed of head, jamb, and sill members with their ends shaped to interfit and interlock so as to produce a rigid rectangular frame.

It is a further feature of the present invention to provide a frame as described above, characterized by the provision of channel shaped moldings at both the room side and the weather side, the channel shaped moldings at the room side having. an outer leg designed to serve as a plaster stop, the moldings at the weather side on the head and jamb members constituting reveals, the molding on the sill member including a wash, all of the moldings at the weather side having outwardly extending nailing fins by means of which the frame is secured in the window opening.

. It is a further feature of the present invention to provide elongated sheet metal members from which a trim frame is assembled, each of the shaped moldings, and means for securing the adjacent corners of some of said members comprising cutout portions located in the moldings of some of said members and cutout portions located intermediate the moldings in the other of said members, and preferably interfitting tongue and slot connections between said members.

Other objects and features of the invention will become apparent as the description proceeds, especially when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a perspective view partly in section illustrating an assembled trim frame.

Figure 2 is a fragmentary perspective view, partly in section of a sill member.

Figure 3 is a fragmentary view partly in section of a jamb member.

Figure 4 is a fragmentary exploded perspective view illustrating the interlock provided between reveals in the assembled frame.

members having at its opposite sides channel an end of a head member and an upper end of a jamb member.

Figure 5 is a fragmentary plan view of the end of a head member.

Figure 6 is an end elevation of a head member.

Figure 7 is a transverse vertical section through a portion of the building illustrating the insideoutside trim in place.

Figure 8 is a fragmentary horizontal section showing one ofthe jamb members in place in a window opening.

Figure 9 is a perspective view of an attaching clip used in the present construction.

The inside-outside metal trim comprises an elongated sill member Ell, jamb members l2, and a head member l4. These members are formed of sheet metal and excellent results have been obtained when the sill member is formed from 16-gauge steel and the jamb and head .members are formed from 18-gauge steel.

The head and jamb members are of the same general cross-section and each comprises a room side channel shaped molding l6 having an inner leg l8, and outer leg 20, and an intermediate connecting wall 22. In use, the edge 24 of the outer leg 2t abuts the inner wall of the building and constitutes a plaster stop.

At the weather side the members comprise channel shaped moldings 26 which include inner legs 28, outer legs 30, and an intermediate connecting wall 32. The moldings 26 constitute At the edge of the outer legs so of the weather side moldings 26, the material is formed to extend outwardly to provide nailing fins 34 provided with nailing holes 36.

Intermediate the room side moldings l6 and the weather side moldings 25 is an intermediate .web portion including a wall 38 and an inwardly extending hollow rib it, this rib comprising an inwardly extending wall 42, a second inwardly extending wall 44, and an intermediate connecting wall 46. The walls 38 and 32 define relatively deep recesses for shades or blinds and this constitutes an important feature of the present construction.

At the weather side of the hollow ribs it and between such ribs and the channel shaped reveal moldings 26, the material of the head and sill members is shaped to provide walls 47 and 48, the ,walls 44 and ll providing seats against which flanges of sash frame bars 49 seat as indicated in Figures 7 and 8. The wall 48 is provided with threaded openings 5| for the reception of fastening screws indicated at 52 in Figure 7. Alter- 3 natively, the openings 51 need not be threaded and may cooperate with self-threading metal screws.

The sill member i includes a channel shaped molding '5 at the room side which comprises an inner leg 54 and an outer leg 56, and an intermediate connecting wall 58. At the weather side the sill member it] comprises a channel shaped molding til having an inclined inner leg 62, an outer leg 64 and an intermediate wall 66. The inclined inner leg 62 constitutes the wash. The outer leg 6:3 has an outwardly formed nailing fin 61.

Intermediate the channel shaped moldings 53 and 60 extends a web comprising a flat horizontal sill portion 68 terminating in a wall 79 which connects to the inner leg 82 of the channel shaped molding til. The intersection between the walls 62 and lil provides a seat in which one flange of the bottom frame member 12 engages as best seen in Figure '7.

Means are provided for assembling the head, jamb, and sill members together on the job so that these members may be transported in collapsed condition at a considerable saving in shipping charges. For this purpose the ends of the members are shaped to cooperate so as to provide a rigid frame and this construction will now be described in detail.

Referring now to Figures 3 and i, the connection between one of the jamb members i2 and the head member Hi is illustrated. The intermediate portion at the end of the jamb member i2 between the room side molding i5 and the weather side molding $0 is cut back as indicated at Hi to leave tongues it and E8, the wall 38 terminating along the edge 86 intermediate and adjacent the tongues l8 and iii. The edge 86 in the assembled frame is adapted to abut against the wall 33 of the head member M and the wall 38 of the head member H3 is provided with slots 82 for the reception of the tongues '56 and T8. The ends of the jamb members ii are further cut away as indicated at 84 across the rib ilil to provide a second end edge portion 86 which is adapted to abut against the wall it of the hollow rib til in the head member i i. The cut away end portion of the jamb members is continued in a difierent vertical plane across the walls 6! and 48 as indicated at 88, the end surface thus provided being adapted to fit against the wall portion Q8 of the head member M. Projecting outwardly from the edge 86 is a tongue til and the adjacent end of the head member i4 is provided with a slot 92 for the reception of the tongue Bil. n

The end of the head member i4 is formed with open ended slots at and 96 located in the inner leg of the moldings it and respectively. The nailing fin 36 projects outwardly beyond the end surfaces of the weather side molding as indicated at ill (Figure 4).

The previously described end construction of the jamb members i2 leaves portions of the moldings it and 2t thereon which extend upwardly and are adapted to enter into the slots 94 and 95 respectively. For this purpose the lateral dimension of the moldings it and 26 on the jamb members i2 is slightly smaller than the corresponding dimension of the moldings on the head member 14. This construction provides for proper registry between the ends of the head member i i and the upper ends of the jamb members i2, the upwardly projecting portions of the moldings on the jamb members entering the slots 96 and 95 provided in the inner legs of the moldings and closing the ends of the moldings l6 and 2'. The tongues l6, l8 and til enter the slots 82 and 92 and are adapted to be clinched over as best illustrated in Figure 1. Thus, a firm connection is established between the upper ends of the jamb members 12 and the ends of the head member M.

A different construction is provided for securing the lower ends of the jamb members i2 to the ends of the sill member lb. The ends of the sill member, as best seen in Figure 2, are produced by cutting the sill member and bending certain portions thereof, as will now be described. The room side portion of the sill member at each end thereof is cut away along a plane to provide an edge Hill except for a projecting tab 8&2 extending from the wall 53 of the inner trim molding 53. This tab W2 is bent as indicated in Figure 2 to close the end of the room side trim molding 53. The weather molding '60 is cut ofi along a plane spaced from the plane defined by the edge portions to provide second edge por-v tions Hi l and H36, at the outer wall 64 and the inner wall or wash 62 respectively. A tab [08 is left extending on the vertical bottom wall 56 of the weather side molding and this is folded over to close the end of the molding as best illustrated in Figure 2. Tabs Hi2 and I08 are formed to extend into the moldings 53 and Bil respectively. The nailing fun 61 extends longitudinal beyond the weather side molding 60. The wall 68 is provided with a plurality of slots H0 for the reception of tongues provided at the lower end of the jamb members 12.

The lower ends of the jamb members 12, as best seen in Figure 3, are cut away along a perpendicular plane from the room side molding It to the wall 42, leaving an end edge surface H2 adapted to rest upon the flat surface of the Wall 558 of the sill member Iii. The wall member 41 and the inner leg 28 and wall 32 of theweather side molding 26 are cut away along a stepped plane to provide an edge iiliadapted to rest upon the wash or wall 62. The outer legBil of the weather side molding and the nailing fin 34 extend downwardly beyond the edge i 54. Extending downwardly from the edge portion I 42 of the jamb members i2 are tongues H65 adapted to enter into the slots Hal previously described and to be clinched after insertion therein.

When the jamb members it are assembled with the sill member iii it will be observed that there is substantially continuous engagement between the end surfaces of all portions of the jamb members, with the exception of the outer leg $3 of the weatherside molding and the nailing fin 2%, with corresponding areas provided at the upper surface of the sill member Ii]. Moreover, the outer leg 36 of the weather side molding and the end of the nailing fin 34 engage in substantial area contact with the bent tab Hi8 and the end of thenailin-g fin ti, as best seen in Figure l.

Referring now to Figures '7 and 8 there is illustrated the manner in which the inside-outside trim is associated in the window opening. In these figures a rough window opening is illustrated at [2d In Figure 7, which is a vertical section through the window, the head member'id and the sill member iii are illustrated in section. The nailing fin 34 of the head member id is shown nailed at i23 to sheathing I22. The room side molding 16 includes the outer leg 20 which serves as a plaster stop and in this figure plaster is indicated at I24 finished against the surface of the plaster stop 20.

In like manner, the nailing fin 61 of the sill member If) is nailed to the sheathing I22 as indicated at I25.

In order to retain the inside-outside trim in position attaching clips I30 are provided having heads I32 adapted to fit into the channels of the room side moldings I6 and 53. In practice, the entire assembly is inserted from the outside of the building. At this time the room side moldings I6 and 53 extend into the room beyond the window opening. The heads I32 of the attaching clips I30 are then inserted, within the moldings after which the strips are nailed to the building Wall,

Attention is directed to the fact that the inside-outside trim not only provides a very attractive finishing trim to both the room side and weather side of the window opening, but also, it may be assembled on the job and inserted with a minimum of effort and without the requirement for skilled labor. Furthermore, the inside-outside trim as described herein is adapted to receive and provide the support for the sash frame. As seen in Figures '7 and 8 the sash frame constitutes a plurality of bars 49, 72 and I36, which are secured against appropriately shaped seats provided by the trim.

The drawings and the foregoing specification constitute a description of the improved insideoutside metal trim in such full, clear, concise and exact terms as to enable any person skilled in the art to practice the invention, the scope of which is indicated by the appended claims.
