ADJUSTABLE GE FOR CLOSURES Jack Bury, Benton Harbor, Mich, assignor to Kaywood Corporation, Benton Harbor, Mich.
Application July 18, 1956, Serial No. 598,629
3 Claims. (Cl. 16-129) This invention relates to a blind or other closure asembly for windows and the like and hinges therefor.
The main objects of the invention are:
First, to provide a hinge structure or assembly for closures which is adapted for installing and adjustment to meet varying conditions commonly found in window frames and the like. i V
Second, to provide a hinge assembly having these advantages which may be installed by others than skilled workmen.
Objects relating to details and economies of the invention will appear from the description to follow. The invention is defined and pointed out in the claims.
A preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a fragmentary elevatfonal view of a closure structure of the blind type embodying my invention with one of the foldable blind units in closed position and the other open and partially broken away, other parts being broken away and sectioned to show structural details.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary view in section on a line corresponding to line 22 of Fig. 1 with the foldable blind unit in open position as distinguished from the closed position shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary perspective view of parts shown in Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view of the side of the casing with the swingable hinge member omitted.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view partially in section illustrating a modified form or embodiment of my invention.
In the accompanying drawing 1 represents a window frame and 2 the side members thereof. 3 represents a sash. As the details of the window frame structure form no part of my present invention they are not described herein. I
However, Fig. 2 shows certain details of a conventional type of window casing.
4 represents folding blind sections which are shown in connected pairs the hinges being indicated at 5. As the details of the blinds form no part of my present invention and as my present invention may be embodied in other closure assemblies, I do not describe the blinds in detail.
The embodiment of my invention illustrated comprises the elongated rail 6 of channel section, the arms of which is provided with inturned flanges 7 which define an elongated slot 8. The rail is desirably formed of extruded metal but may be readily formed of sheet metal. The web 9 of the rail is provided with transverse slots 10 spaced longitudinally of the rail and adapted to receive the attaching screws 11. These slots in the web of the rail permit and facilitate the vertical pos tioning of the rail to bring it into plumb and also to adapt the same to particular closures.
In the embodiment shown in Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive, the blinds or closures close into the frame and in the embodiment shown in Fig. 5 the closures are positioned Sttes arm at the inner side of the frame both when in open and in closed position.
In the embodiment shown in Figs. 1 to 4 the hinge comprises the hinge members 12 and 13 provided with knuckles receiving the hinge pin or pintle 14. The hinge member 13 is angled at 15 so that its inner end 16 may lap upon the rail while its outer end is in thrust supported engagement with the inner side of the casing. In this embodiment the rail is spaced inwardly from the inner side of the casing.
The hinge member 13 is adjustably secured to the rail by means of screws 17 which have threaded engagement with the clips 18 disposed on the inner side of the flanges 7 and clamp the clip against the inner sides of the flanges and the hinge member against the outer sides thereof. The clip is of less width than the rail so that the hinge may be adjusted both laterally and longitudinally of the rail and secured in its adjusted position.
In the embodiment illustrated in Figs. 1 to 4 the closures lie within the casing when in closed position. In the embodiment shown in Fig. 5 they do not close into the casing or frame. The structure is the same as that described with the exception that the rail is mounted on the side of the casing instead of within the casing and the hinge member 19, corresponding to the hinge member 1?, is of right angle shape instead of being stepped as in Fig. 3. The same advantages of adjustment are present in both embodiments.
This mounting permits the shutter or other closure being adjusted to perfect alignment and to compensate for irregularities in the frame structure as warping or settling and the like such as are likely to occur or to be met with.
My invention is capable of wide adaptations but it is believed that the disclosure made will enable those skilled in the art to embody or adapt my invention as may be desired.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim to be new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A hinge structure comprising an elongated supportrail of channel section adapted to be mounted on a supporting member such as the side member of a window pane or the like in outwardly facing relation thereto, said rail comprising a web portion and inwardly facing angled arms, the edges of the arms being spaced to provide a slot-like opening extendng longitudinally of the rail, the web portion of the rail having transverse slots therein spaced longitudinally thereof, a hinge comprising pivotally connected members, one member of which is disposed upon sad angled arms of said rail, 2. clip of a width substantially less than the distance between the arms of said rails disposed within the rail for lateral and longitudinal adjustment therein, and a threaded fastener for the hinge member rotatably and supportingly engaged therewith and disposed between the flanges of said rail in threaded engagement with said clip whereby the hinge member may be adjusted laterally and longitudinal ly of the rail and the hinge member clampingly secured in its adjusted pos tion on the rail, said transverse slots in the web of said rail being adapted to receive fasteners whereby the rail may be tiltably adjusted and secured upon a support member by fasteners disposed within the rail and projecting through said transverse slots in the web thereof, the fasteners being accessible through the slot-like opening between the arms of the rail.
2. A hinge structure comprising an elongated supporting rail of channel section adapted to be mounted on a side member of a Window frame or the like in outwardly facing relation thereto, said rail comprising a web portion and inwardly facing angled arms, the edges of the arms being spaced to provide a slot-like opening extending longitudinally of the rail, the web portion of the rail lateral and longitudinal adjustment therein, and a threaded fastener for the hinge member rotatably and supportingly engaged therewith and disposed between the flanges of said rail in threaded engagement with said clip whereby the hinge member may be adjustably positioned on and laterally and longitudinally of the rail and clampingly secured in its adjusted position thereon, said fastener receiving openings in the web of the rail being aligned with said slot-like opening between the angled arms of the rail so that the rail may be secured upon a support member by fasteners disposed within the rail and accesible through the opening between the arms of the rail.
3. A hinge structure comprising an elongated supporting rail of channel section adapted to be mounted on a side member of a window frame or the like in outwardly facing relation thereto, said rail comprising a web portion and inwardly facing angled arms, the edges of the arms being spaced to provide a slot-like opening extending longitudinally of the rail, the web portion of the rail having fastener receiving openings therein, a hinge comprising pivotally connected members, one member of which is disposed upon said angled arms of said rail, a clip disposed within the rail for longitudinal adjustment therein, and a threaded fastener for the hinge member rotatably and supportingly engaged therewith and disposed between the fianges of said rail in threaded engagement with said clip whereby the hinge member may be adjustably positioned on the rail and clampingly secured in its adjusted position thereon, said fastener receiving openings in the web of the rail being aligned with said slot-like opening between the angled arms of the rail so that the-rail may be secured upon a support member by fasteners disposed within the rail and accessible through the opening between the arms of the rail.
