United States Patent Ord 3,084,479 TRAILER AWNING Francis L. Struben, Baitimore, Md., assignor of one-half to Jean C. Struben, Baltimore, Md. Filed Aug. 27, 1959, Ser. No. 836,542 2 Claims. (Cl. Sti-58) This invention relates generally to awnings, and more particularly the invention pertains to lean-to types of awning roof structure especially adapted for factory prefabrication and customer erection.

In U.S. -Patent Number 2,618,820, issued on November l25, 1952, to James W. Fyle, Jr., and Francis L. Struben, entitled Trailer Awning, there is described an awning of the truss type having hanger provisions for .attachment to mobile homes of the trailer type.

The awning of the present invention constitutes an improved awning over the disclosure of the patent in that it has greater strength, 4better weather proofing, improved post attachment and adjustment, concealed gutters, and provides chambered heat insulation. In addition, a great deal of eifort has been given to prefabrication technique for the improved awning arrangement in order to provide a structure which can be bolted together and set up with a minimum of elfort by inexperienced personnel.

lIt is, therefore, an object of the present invention to provide a new and improved awning which makes use of special structural shapes for economy in manufacture and ease of erection.

Another object of this invention is to provide a strong, well insulated, guttered, lean-to type of awning roof structure.

Still other objects of this invention are to provide a new type of awning arrangement which has great strength, good weather proong, improved post attachment and adjustment, concealed gutters, and chambered heat insulation.

Even still another object of this invention is to provide an improved awning structure which can be bolted together and set vup with a minimum of effort by inexperienced personnel.

These and other objects and advantages of this invention will become more readily apparent and understood from the accompanying specication and drawings in which:

3,034,479 Patented Apr. 9, 1963 ICS FIG. 13 is an enlarged fragmentary section taken along line 13-13 of FIG. 1 and discloses the arrangemen-t by ywhich adjoining roof panels are joined.

Referring now to FIG. 1 of the drawings, there is illustrated generally therein an awning 20 attached to a trailer or other structure 22. The awning 2.01 is made up of a pair of spaced metal end trusses 24 (only one of which is illustrated) and a plurality of vspaced metallic intermediate trusses 26. One end of each of the trusses 24 and 26 is bolted toa U-shaped metal awning rail 28, while the other ends thereof are bolted to a parallel spaced metallic `eave rail 30.

As best shown in FIG. 9, the trusses 24 and 26 are braced and `spaced apart by a plurality of metal stringers 34 which are of T-L c-ross section structural shape. The metal stringers 34 are bolted between the trusses 24 and 26. On top of trusses 24 and 26 and stringers 34, a plurality of corrugated metal roof panels 32 are secured.

As shown best in FIG. 13, the -edges of the panels 32 overlap, and the panels 32 are secured to the eave rail 30 and a flange 78 thereof by bolts and nuts 80 and elastic washer S2.

Insulating and slidable ceiling panels 36 are provided beneath the stringers 34, and they are supported at the sides by the trusses 24 and 26. A decorative side valance 38 is bolted to the outside of each end truss 24, and a similar decorative front valance 40 is ybolted to the eave rail 30.

A gutter 30 of extruded metal is secured to and covers the front ends of the roof panels 32.. Several supports of either base type adjustable poles 44 or optionally of spade type adjustable poles 46 are secured to the trusses 24 and 26 as required. These poles 44 and 46 will be described more fully subsequently.

The trusses 24 and 26 are made up of an extruded metal T upper chord mm'eber 48 having a web 50, as shown in FIGS. l, 2, 3, and 6. A lower chord member 52, also of extruded metal, has a cross section, best illustrated in FIGS. 5 and 8, with a ange 53, a web 54, and a ybase 55. The ange 53 of each lower chord member 52 captivates and the base 55 thereof supports the insulating ceiling panels 36.

By means of rivets 56, the web 5t)` at the ends of the arched upper chord members 48 are fastened in overlapping relationship to the web 54 of the lower chord members 52. A plurality of spaced truss verticals 58 of structural angle are fastened by rivets 60 to the upper and lower chord members 48 and 54.

As shown best in FIGS. 2 and 3, a screw 62 is used ito support the U-shaped metal awning rail 28 to the trailer structure 22. An intermediate adhesive caulking tape 64 is provided at the seating face as part of the rail 28.

The upper ends of the corrugated roof panels 32 are nested within the rail 28, as shown in FIGS. l, 2, 3, and 4, and the joint is sealed against the weather by means of a mating corrugated rubber seal 66. A bolt and nut 68 secures each truss 24 and 26 to the awning rail 28.

As best illustrated in FIGS. 2 and 6, the eave rail 30 is of metal extruded shape, and it has a web 70 and spaced lower and upper flanges 72 and 74, respectively. The lower ange 72 is provided for supporting the ends of trusses 24 and 26, but the securement therebetween is by means of the short upper ilange 74 and bolts and nuts 76. A long upper flange 78 is also provided on the eave rail 30, and it extends oppositely to flange 74. This flange 74 supports the roof panels 32, which are bolted thereto by nuts and bolts 80 and water tight elastic Washers 82. The front valance 40 is secured to te eave rail 30 by means of bolts and nuts 84.

The gutter 42 is also of extruded cross section asbest illustrated in FIG. 6. Gutter 42 is provided with a ansa-,479

splash iiange S6, which extends over and conceals the top ends of the roof panels 32, and it is arranged to cooperate with the corrugations in the roof panels 32 to effectively prevent ingress of leaves and debris thereto. A locating flange 88 is also provided on the gutter 42 to assure that an unobstructed water passageway down and over the ends of the panels 32 will be provided when they are 1fastened with bolts and nuts 92 and elastic washers 94 to a gutter mounting flange 90 of the gutter 42.

As shown in FIGS. 7, 8, and 9, elastic washers ltli and 104, also for waterproofing purposes, are provided under the heads of bolts and nuts 98 and 1%2, respectively, which secure the roof panels 32 to the stringers 34 and the edges of roof panels 32 to end trusses 24. The stringers 34, in turn, are bolted to the verticals 58 with bolts and nuts 96, as shown in FIGS. 8 and 9.

As best illustrated in FiGS. 6 and l2, the base 5S of the lower chord member 52 is provided with downwardly and outwardly` extending ared portions 116 wherever a pole 44 or 46 is to be secured to the awning 2G. These iiared portions 116 receive a pair of clips 112 made from short-lengths of extruded metal. The clips 112 are drilled and mounted with a bolt and nut 114 onto opposite sides of an upper telescoping tube 168` of the pole 44 or 46. An angular freedom is thereby provided so that the poles 44 or 46 can stand vertically. Vertical length adjustment is provided for by nesting the upper telescoping tube `10S within an outer tube 106, and securing it there at the proper length by means of a bolt and nut |110 passed therethrough, as shown in FIGS. 6 and l2.

As shown in FIG. 10, the base type adjustable pole 44 is similarly provided at its lower end with a lower telescoping tube 118 which is welded to a at base plate 126! This plate 120 is drilled for a plurality of mounting screws X128 which can be driven into ibre plugs 12.6 inserted into a iooring of concrete slab 122 or directly into a wooden flooring. A bolt and nut 124 secures the two tubings 106 and L18 together.

Where the flooring 122 is absent or where greater footing strength is desirable, the spade type pole 46, shown best in FIG. 11, is used. This pole 46 is identical to pole 44 except that the lower telescoping tube 11S is replaced with a ground pipe 130, as shown in FIG. ll, and is secured in position with a bolt and nut 132 to the pole 46. The lower end of pipe 130 is provided with a triangular spade 134 which is fastened thereon by means of rivets 136. Since the entire structure of awning 20 is metallic, a beneficial safety electrical grounding thereof is provided by the driving of at least one spade post 46.

To complete the arrangement of the awning 22, a downspout 142 is provided, and it is secured by screws 144 to the end post 44. Downspout 142 is arranged to connect with a drop outlet 138 of the gutter 42. Outlet 138 is secured with a metal clip type gutter connector 140l to the end of gutter 42. The lower end of downspout 142 is cut at a bevel and it is provided with a deflector 146 which is secured thereto by screws "14S, as shown best in FIG. 1.

The awning 20 as described is not intended to be limited to mobile home or trailer use. The construction, whilesimple and easy to erect, has great strength and is a valuable and durable adjunct to any structure, such as structure 22. The chambered space between the roof and ceiling panels 36 provides good heat insulation so that with the provision of suitable sides a comfortable habitation is obtained.

Obviously, many modifications and variations of the present invention are possible in light of the above teachings. It is, therefore, to be understood that within the scope of the appended claims, the invention may be practiced otherwise than as specically described.
