United States Patent Ofiiice 3,308,588 Patented Mar. 14, 1967 3,308,588 MOUNTING FOR PANELS AND THE LIKE Ernst von Wedel, Senne, near Bielefeld, Germany, assignor to Heinz Schurmann & (30., Bielefeld, Germany Filed Oct. 16, 1964, Ser. No. 404,366 Claims priority, application Germany, Oct. 17, 1963, Sch 34,010 22 Claims. (Cl. 52-127) The present invention relates to supporting arrangements in general, and more particularly to an improved mounting for panels and the like. Still more particularly, the invention relates to a supporting arrangement which constitutes an improvement over and a further development of the arrangement disclosed in my copending application Ser. No. 270,618, filed April 4, 1963, now Patent No. 3,233,381.

In said copending application, I disclose a fluidtight and dustproof device which is capable of retaining a glass pane, a sheet of plywood or a similar panel-like body in a window frame or the like. This device comprises a holder in the form of a plastic strip which is provided with lips and ribs so that the lips may engage a panel and the ribs may retain a cleat or the like when the device is used to keep the panel in the opening of a window frame or door frame. It was found that, while highly satisfactory in a number of respects, the holder can be quite expensive if it is to be produced with sufiicient accuracy to prevent leakage and to insure that the panel and/or cleats will be mounted without undue wobbling. Also, and in order to insure that it may be properly retained by the rib or ribs of the holder, the cleat must be machined, molded, extruded or otherwise shaped with such precision that its ribs may engage with and remain in full face-to-face abutment with the holder.

Accordingly, it is an important object of the present invention to provide an improved mounting for panels or the like and to construct the mounting in such a way that its component parts may engage each other and/ or a panel with requisite force even though they need not be produced with utmost precision so that such parts may be manufactured at low cost and in inexpensive machines.

Another important object of the invention is to provide an improved holder which may be utilized in a mounting of the just outlined character.

A further object of the invention is to provide a holder which, with minor adaptations, may be utilized in many types of mountings and is capable of safely retaining or holding one or more supported parts even though it need not be in optimum engagement therewith.

Briefly stated, my invention resides in the provision of a mounting for wall paneling, ceiling panels, glass panes, floor panels and similar structures, and particularly in the provision of a specially configurated holder which may be used in such mountings. The holder invariably comprises a main body portion of rubber or elastomeric plastic material and at least one row of lips, tongues, teeth, tangs or similar elastically deformable projections having flat or curved retaining surfaces at least some of which are normally staggered with reference to each other, i.e., such surfaces are not aligned with each other when the projections which form a row are in undeformed condition. Consequently, when the retaining surfaces of a row of projections are caused to engage one side of a window pane or the like, at least some of the projections will be deformed and bear against the pane to keep it in requisite position. The projections which form a row may include shorter and longer projections, projections with differently configurated end portions, projections with differently inclined retaining surfaces, and/or projections whose retaining surfaces are in part flat and in part arcuate to insure that at least some such surfaces will engage and locate a supported object.

The novel features which are considered as characteristic of the invention are set forth in particular in the appended claims. The improved mounting itself, however, both as to its construction and the mode of assembling the same, together with additional features and advantages thereof, will be best understood upon perusal of the following detailed description of certain specific embodiments with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 19 is a transverse vertical section through a mounting which utilizes the holder of FIG. 18.

Referring first to FIG. 1, there is shown a mounting for a glass pane 15. This mounting comprises a carrier 11, i.e., a window frame or a door frame having an opening which is to be sealed by the pane 15. The edge face 11a of the frame 11 supports a pair of spaced holders 12 (hereinafter called strips) which are mirror symmetrical with reference to the plane of the pane 15 and are constructed and configurated in accordance with one embodiment of my invention. Each strip 12 comprises a body portion 13 carrying a first row of retaining projections 19- 23 (see FIG. 2) which resemble lips and serve to engage the respective side of the pane 15, a second row of retaining projections 1911-2311 in the form of lips having reinforced end portions or beads 1911, and a third row of retaining projections 19'b-23b which are similar to the lips 1911-23a and are provided with reinforced end portions or beads 19b. It will be noted that the planes of the lips 1923, 1911-2341 and 19b-23b are inclined with reference to each other and that the thickness of lips 19-23 decreases in a direction away from the body portion 13. The strips 12 consist of rubber or elastic synthetic plastic material and may be glued, screwed or otherwise permanently or detachably secured to the edge face 11a, In their undeformed condition, the retaining surfaces of the lips in each row are staggered with reference to each other in such a way that one or more lips of each row must be deformed in order to allow the remaining lip or lips to engage a supported object. For example, and as shown in FIG. 2, the retaining surface 19" of the first lip 19 is out of alignment with the corresponding surface of the lip 20 so that the lip 19 must be deformed if the lip 20 is to engage the right-hand side of the pane 15 shown in FIG. 1. The same applies for the retaining surfaces of the lips 21, 22, 23. Thus, when the pane 15 is held in the position of FIG. 1, each of the lips 19-23- is deformed to a different degree and each such lip exerts a different retaining force. Of course, it is possible to construct the strips 12 in such a way that the retaining surface 19" of the lip 19 is normally coplanar with the corresponding surface of one or more lips in the same row, but the retaining surfaces of at least two lips in each row should be staggered with reference to each other to insure that one or more lips will undergo at least some deformation and will exert a certain pressure when the strips 12 are mounted in the positions shown in FIG. 1.

The mounting of FIG. 1 further comprises two sealing battens or cleats 18 each of which comprises three ribs 18a, 18b, 180. The ribs 18a have reinforced end portions or beads 1811 which are retained between the edge face 11a and the rows of lips 19b-23b. The ribs 18b have similar end portions or beads which are retained by the lips 19a23a, and the ribs 18c bear against the outer sides of the lips H-23 to press them against the respective sides of the pane 15. It will be noted that each cleat 18 overlies a portion of the edge face 11a and the adjacent portion of the respective side face 11b.

The beads 19a and 19a on the lips 19la-23a and 19b-23b are staggered with reference to each other so that at least some of the lips are deformed when the ribs 18a, 18b are attached to the respective rows by snap action. The ribs Isa-18 may but need not be elastic and each thereof may comprise a row of shorter ribs which may but need not be staggered with reference to each other.

The strips 12 may be produced in such a way that their lips 19-23 are of-identical dimensions but are staggered with reference to each other or, alternatively, each of the lips 19-23 may be thicker or thinner than the other lips in the same row. In FIG. 2, the lips 19-23 are of the same thickness but are staggered with reference to each other. The dimensions of all of the lips 19a-23a are the same but they are staggered with reference to each other. However, the lips .1%-23-b include lips of greater and lesser thickness and, in addition, such lips are staggered with respect to each other. Thus, when the ribs 18a, 18!) are snapped in position, at least some of the lips Her-23a and 19'b-23b are deformed and exert a bias which keeps the cleats 18 in requisite positions. Each row may but need not contain the same number of lips, and it is equally possible to replace one or two of these rows by a continuous projection as long as at least one row contains a series of staggered lips. For the sake of simplicity, the expression staggered will be utilized in connection with the lips of one or more rows but it is to be understood that the retaining or engaging surfaces of such lips are staggered with reference to each other whereas the rear and other surfaces may but need not be staggered when a given strip is in non-deformed condition.

FIG. 3 illustrates a simplified elastic holder or strip 1 including a main body portion 1a and a single row of projections or lips 3, 4, having reinforced end portions or beads 3a, 4a, 5a. This strip may be utilized as a substitute for the main body portion 13 and lips 1912-2311, of a strip 12. The main body'portion 1a is provided with a bore 2 or a similar aperture to receive the head and/ or a portion of the stern of a screw or an analogous fastener which serves to secure the strip to a frame or to another carrier. The retaining surfaces 31), 4b, 5b of the lips 3-5 are staggered with reference to each other when the strip 1 is in undeformed condition. This strip may replace one of the strips 12 when the cleats 18 are replaced by simplified cleats which comprise only two ribs (181), one of which may be retained by the surfaces 3b-5b and the other of which then bears against the respective side of the pane 15. The outer sides 3c-5c of the lips 3-5 are disposed in a common plane when the strip 1 is in undeformed condition. The lip 3 is shorter than the lip 4, and the latter is shorter than the lip 5.

FIG. 4 shows a somewhat modified bolder or strip 1A which is quite similar to the strip 1 but comprises a row of five projections or lips 6-10 whose retaining surfaces are staggered with reference to each other. The main body portion of the strip 1A is provided with a bore 2A and this strip may be used to replace one of the strips 12 and to retain a cleat which comprises a rib 18a and a rib 18c whereby the rib 18a is retained by the lips 6-10. The lips 6-10 are of diiferent length so that the ridges of their heads are out of alignment with each other, i.e., the ridge of the bead on the lip 7 is nearer tothe observer than the ridge of the bead on the lip 6, and so forth. However, it is not necessary that the staggering of the lips 6-10 be as regular as shown in FIG. 4.

FIG. 5 shows a holder or strip 24 having a main body portion 24a, a first row of projections or lips 24b-24f, and a second row of projections or lips 24g which correspond to the lips 19a-23a or 19b-23b of FIG. 2. It will be noted that the lips 2412-24) are of different thickness. The retaining surface 24d of the thickest (median) lip 24d is offset rearwardly from the corresponding surfaces of the lips 24b, 24c, 24c, 24 so that, when these lips are to engage one side of a glass pane 15 or the like, the weaker (more readily deformable) lips 24b, 246, Me and 24 are deformed before the pane engages the surface 24:1. The lip 24d may be so strong, i.e., its elasticity may be so small, that it keeps the supported object in requisite position. Thus, once the pane comes in contact with the surface 24d, the lips 24b, 24c, 24c, 24] of greater elasticity need not undergo any further deformation. However, if the pressure of the object which bears against the surface 24d is so strong that the lip 24d is also deformed, all of the lips will be deformed as a unit and their retaining surfaces remain in permanent contact with the object.

The lips 24g may perform the same function as the lips 19b-23b and their beads are preferably staggered with reference to each other so that the rib 18a of a cleat 18 will be clamped by at least one lip 24g even if the rib 18a is not finished or dimensioned with a high degree of accuracy.

Referring now to FIG. 6, there is shown a holderor strip 25 which is similar to the strip 1 or 1A but is pro vided with an integral fastener so that it may be received in the hole 28a of a plate-like carrier 28 and is then re tained by snap action. The fastener comprises a slotted cylindrical stem 25 and a slotted head 27 which extends beyond the hole 28a to insure safe retention of the strip 25. Thus, the head 27 of the stem 26 bears against one side and the main body portion 25a of the strip bears against the other side of the carrier 28. The strip comprises a single row of projections or lips 2512 which may be staggered in the same way as shown in FIG. 3 or 4.

FIG. 8 shows a mounting which includes two panels 29, 43 connected to each other by holders or strips 32 of the type shown in FIG. 7. The panel 29 comprises two spaced ribs 31, 31a which are received between similar ribs 45, 46 of the panel 43. The ribs 45, 46 have outwardly extending beads 45', 46'. The panel 29 also comprises a second pair of ribs 30, 30a which are spaced outwardly from the ribs 31, 31a and comprise inwardly extending beads 30', 30a.

The construction of one of the strips 32 is shown in FIG. 7. This strip includes a main body portion 32a having a first row of staggered projections or lip's 33-37 whose end portions or beads engage the bead 30' or 30a, and a second row of staggered projections or lips 38-42 whose end portions or beads engage the bead 45' or 46.,

Thus, in a way, the strips 32 are equivalent to the strip 25 of FIG. 6 because they may be detachably secured to a carrier without resorting to screws or other separate fasteners. In the embodiment of FIG. 8, the panel 29 is the outer skin of a side wall and the panel 43 is a detachable plate which coats the exposed side of the wall. The distance between the ribs 30, 31 and 30a, 31a is so small that the strips 32 are retained by friction, i.e., they are compressed to such an extent that each thereof remains in the illustrated position when the panel 43 is detached in response to a pull in the direction indicated by arrow 43A. In other words, the ribs 30, 30a press the lips 33-37 of the respective strips 32 with such a force that the lips are bent toward the main body portions 32a whereby it suffices if at least one of the corresponding lips 33-37 is deformed to hold the strip in requisite position. If desired, two or more strips may be attached to each of the ribs 30, 30a, and such strips then form a series of strips each of which is detachably but securely coupled to the panel 29.

The lips 38-42 are of different length, i.e., their beads are located at a different distance from the panel 29. This insures that the ribs 45, 46 are properly retained even if their beads fail to engage each of the corresponding lips 38-42.

FIG. 9 shows a holder or strip 50 having a plate-like main body portion 50a which supports two rows of substantially mirror symmetrical projections or lips 47-49 and 47a-49a of semicylindrical shape. The lips of each row are staggered with reference to each other and extend substantially at right angles to the plane of the main body portion 50a. The latter is provided with apertures 50b to receive screws, nails or similar fasteners which secure it to a carrier Slain a manner as shown in FIG. 10. The two rows of lips 47-49 and 4712-4911 are received in an elongated groove 51b of a panel 51 which is detachably coupled to the carrier 51a. It will be noted that the lips 47-49 and 47a-49a must be flexed at the time they enter into or are withdrawn from the groove 51b; and this groove is bounded by a concave surface. The panel 51 corresponds to the panel 43 of FIG. 8 and may constitute a section of wall paneling. Since the lips 47-49 and 47a- 49a are staggered with reference to each other, the panel 51 is properly supported even if the surface surrounding the groove 51b does not engage each lip of the strip 50.

FIG. 11 shows a mounting for a window pane 58. This pane is mounted on a carrier 53, best shown in FIG. 12, and is retained by a series of holders 54 one of which is illustrated in FIG. 13. The carrier 53 is a flat plate consisting of steel, aluminum or another metallic material and its edge portions are provided with specially configurated cutouts 52 each of which is bounded by two hook-shaped clamping elements 56, 57 forming integral parts of the carrier 53. These clamping elements are engaged by complementary clamping elements 55, 55a at the longitudinal ends of the respective holder 54 so that the latter is detachably secured to the carrier 53.

Each holder 54 comprises three rows of projections or lips and two sealing tongues 68 which engage the opposite sides of the carrier 53 (inwardly of the respective cutout 52) when the holder is mounted in a manner as shown in FIG. 11 or 12. The lips include a first row consisting of three staggered lips 59-61 which extend outwardly from one side of the carrier 53, a second row of three staggered lips 59a-61a which extend from the opposite side of the carrier 53, and a third row consistside of the window plane 58 and the projections 63-65 are engaged by the ribs 67, 67a of cleats 62 which are slipped onto the respective holder in a manner as shown in FIG. 11. Each cleat 62 further comprises ribs 67b, 670 the former of which engages the outer sides of the lips 59-61 and presses them against the respective side of the pane 58. The lower lips 59a-61a are normally spaced from the ribs 670 but will be flexed outwardly if the operator inserts a second pane whose upper edge then extends between the downwardly extending lips 59a- 61a and abuts against the corresponding tongues 68. The ribs 67, 67a have beads 66 which are engaged by the beads of the lips 63-65 and keep the respective cleats from falling off the carrier 53.

It will be noted that the cutouts 52 in one edge portion of the carrier 53 are staggered with reference to the cutouts in the other edge portion.

FIGS. 14 to 16 illustrate a mounting which includes a holder 69 having two substantially coplanar but oppositely directed clamping elements 70, 70a. These clamping elements may underlie and are then engaged by complementary clamping elements or flanges 74a, 74b provided at one side of a carrier 74. The main body portion 6% of the holder 69 has a polygonal recess or. hole 71 which may receive the working end of a tool 72 serving to facilitate detachment of the holder from its carrier 74. The distance 73 between the flanges 74a, 74b of the carrier is less than the maximum width of the holder 69 (i.e., less than the distance between the longitudinal edge faces of the coupling elements 70, 70a) so that the holder must be deformed in order to be attached to or detached from the carrier. The flanges 74a, 74b are disposed at the opposite sides of an elongated gap 74d which receives the main body portion 69a, and the flanges face each other. When an operator desires to attach the holder to the carrier, the holder is placed onto the plate 740 of the carrier in such a way that the coupling elements 70, 70a are normal to the coupling elements 74a, 74b. The tool 72 is then inserted into the hole 71 and the holder is rotated through 90 degrees to move the elements 70, 70a in engagement with the elements 74a, 74b.

The holder 69 comprises a first row of staggered projections in the form of lips 75, 76 and a second row of staggered projections in the form of beaded lips 77, 78. The main body portion 69a comprises a small plate-like extension 69b which overlies the coupling element 74a and may serve as .a stop for the end face of a panel (not shown) one side of which is engaged by the lips 75, 76. The lips 77, 78 may retain the rib of a cleat or the like.

The holder 79 of FIGS. 17 and 18 comprises a cruciform main body portion 79a which serves as a stiffener and facilitates insertion of the holder between a carrier 81 and a supported panel 90, see FIG. 19. The end face 80 of the main body portion 79a may be struck by a hammer or the like so as to be forced into the space between a bottom flange 81a of the carrier 81 and a rib a of the panel 90. The outer side of the rib 90a is engaged by a rib 81b of the carrier 81, and the rib 81b has a bead 810 which engages one or more beads on a row of staggered projections or lips 82-85 provided on the holder 79. The holder comprises a second row of staggered projections or lips 86-89 having beads at least one of which will be engaged by the bead 90b of the rib 90a.

The beads on the lips 86-89 pull the rib 90a into the space between the flange 81a and rib 81b. On the other hand, the beads of the lips 82-85 tend to push the rib 81b away from the flange 81a whereby the holder 79 is retained in the groove between the flange 81a and rib 81b. In other words, the rows of staggered lips on my improved holder may perform a pushing, pulling, deflecting, compressing or other action which is necessary to provide a safe but easy-to-terminate connection between frames, panels, cleats and similar elements.

Without further analysis, the foregoing will so fully reveal the gist of the present invention that others can, by applying current knowledge, readily adapt it for various applications without omitting features which fairly constitute essential characteristics of the generic and specific aspects of this invention and, therefore, such adaptations should and are intended to be comprehended within the meaning and range of equivalence of the following claims.
