smnms wmnow CONSTRUCTION Filed June 16, 1965 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 I W W/ A 7 BY Ouuw mmm gtQmu ATTORNEYS 3,324,597 SLHDING WINDOW CONSTRUCTION Samuel Rich, ()ak Park, Mich, assignor to Acorn Products Company, Detroit, Mich. Filed .llune 16, 1965, Ser. No. 464,585 Claims. (Cl. 49--4l06) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A pair of framed sash, one of which is slidable and has a pair of grooves formed in the leading edge of its frame, with an L-shaped sealing strip having one leg formed to interchangeably fit within either of the grooves and a second, sealing strip, leg arranged parallel to the leading edge. The other sash has a sealing flange formed on each side of its leading edge, so that the sealing strip on the slidable sash interlocks with one of the flanges of the other sash, thereby permitting the sliding sash to be mounted for either left or right hand movement.

Summary of invention This invention relates to a window construction, particularly useful in large size to function as both a window and a slidably openable access door, having a pair of window sash, one fixed and the other slidable, with the two sash having leading edge interlocking weather strip flanges which may be interlocked on either side of the sash so that the two sash may be positioned parallel to each other, with either of their two faces adjacent to one another, within an outer Window frame for either left hand or right hand sliding of the slidable frame.

Disclosure This invention relates to a sliding window construction and more particularly a window construction having large size door-like sash for use as both an access door and a window and wherein one of the sashes is fixed in position and the other is slidably movable.

In large size windows, used as access doors, it is common to form one of the sashes as a fixed sash and the other as a movable sash, and to interlock for sealing the adjacent frame edges of the two sashes, when the window is closed, by means of suitable sealing strips, and the like. In such construction, two types of sashes must be made, one for a left hand operation and the other for a right hand operation, that is, where the movable sash is either on the left side or the right side. The need for two different models for left and right hand opening presents numerous problems in fabrication, stocking, shipping, and installation.

Hence, it is an object of this invention to provide a window construction having a fixed sash and a horizontally slidable sash with interlocking sealing means formed on the adjacent sash frame elements, when the window is closed, and with these sealing means so formed that it may be quickly and easily changed for either left or right hand opening of the slidable door so that only one construction is needed for left and right hand operation, and conversion of the unit for either left or right hand operation may be done quickly and simply without the need for any tools.

3324,57 Patented June 13, 1967 look with a sealing edge formed on either one or the other side of the fixed sash.

These and other objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent upon reading the following description, of which the attached drawings form a part.

In these drawings:

FIG. 1 is an elevational, cross-sectional view of the window construction.

FIG. 2 is a plan, cross-sectional view taken as if in the direction of arrows 2-2 of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of the interlocking frame elements of the fixed and movable sash, and

FIG. 4 is an enlarged view of the movable sealing strip used in connection with the movable sash.

FIG. 5 is an enlarged, perspective view of a fragment of the frame of the movable sash and showing the sealing strip in position.

Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, the window unit is formed of an outer frame 11 comprising a header 12, a sill 13 and jambs 14, all connected together at their ends, in any conventional manner, to form a rectangular frame.

Within the outer frame is mounted a framed screen 15, a framed fixed sash 16 and a framed slidable sash 17, with glazing units 18 secured within the sash/ frames. The glazing units may be each formed of two sheets of glass arranged parallel and spaced apart and mounted within the sash frames by means of plastic channel stripping, all of which is conventional.

The screen is arranged to slide horizontally upon a screen track 20 formed integral with the sill. 13, by means of rollers 19 mounted within the lower frame element of the screen.

The slidable sash 17 is provided with rollers 22 for riding upon a slidable sash track 21 formed intgeral with the sill 13. The fixed sash 16 rests upon a wide fixed sash track 23 and is held against sliding by means of a suitable stop 24.

The outer frame jambs are each provided with a channel 25 to receive the vertical edges of the slidable sash 17, and one leg 26 of such channel is bent into a camlike curve for camming the slidable sash in a direction away from the fixed sash and into secure contact with a Weatherstrip 27 mounted within such channel 25.

Likewise, channels 28 are formed in the jambs to receive the vertical edge of the fixed sash 16 and one leg 29 of such channel is bent into a curved cam-like shape to press the sash into engagement with a Weatherstrip 30.

As shown in FIG. 2, the slidable sash 17 would be on the inside of a building within which the frame is mounted, and the screen 15 would be on the outside of the building. Thus, a person standing in the building and looking out would have the slidable sash on his left and would open the slidable sash by moving it towards his right.

The movable and fixed sashes may be reversed by lifting them out of the outer frame and placing the movable sash on the right and the fixed sash on the left, as it would appear from looking out of the building.

The two sashes are interlocked at their overlapping leading edge frame elements as shown in FIG. 2. The leading edge or vertical frame element of the slidable sash, generally designated 33, is U-shaped in cross-section, as is the corresponding vertical or leading edge frame element 34 of the fixed sash 16.

Referring to FIG. 3, the vertical frame element 34 of the fixed sash 16 is provided with a pair of flanges 35 on its opposite sides, each connected by an integral extension 36 to the base of the U-shaped frame element. The flanges 35 are arranged parallel to the legs of the U-shaped frame element 34, and their free or leading edges are tapered at 37 on their sides facing towards their 3 adjacent frame element legs to form wedge-like leading edges. In addition, each flange is provided with a weatherstrip channel 38 within which Weatherstrip 39 is mounted.

The leading edge or vertical frame element 33 of the movable sash 17 is provided with an L-shaped member 40 having a fastening leg 41 and a sealing strip leg 42. The leg 41 is provided with a T-shaped tongue arranged to slidably fit into a T-shaped groove 44 formed in the base of the framed element 33 near one leg thereof or alternatively into a corresponding T-shaped groove formed at the opposite corner or side of the frame element (see dotted lines showing element 40 in opposite groove).

As shown in FIG. 4, the underside of the cross-bar of the T-shaped tongue is provided, at its outer edges, with continuous beads 45, and the tongue 43 relatively loosely fits within the groove 44, being inserted therein, longitudinally of the tongue.

The sealing strip leg portion 42 is provided with a Weatherstrip groove 46 within which Weatherstripping 47 is mounted and its leading or free edge is tapered at 48 to form a Wedge-shaped leading edge.

As shown in FIG. 3, when the window is closed, the vertical elements of the two sashes overlap and the sealing strip leg 42 of the movable sash interlocks with the fixed flange 35 adjacent to it. The wedging action of the leading edges of the sealing strip and the flange respectively, tends to pivot the L-shaped member to thus cause one of the beads 45 to tightly press into its adjacent groove portion, as well as to cause the free end of the leg 41 to tightly engage the base of the U-shaped vertical element to thereby form a tight seal.

Should it be desired to mount the windows in the opposite direction, that is, with the movable sash opening in the opposite direction, then the L-shaped sealing element 40 is removed from the channel within which it is mounted as shown in FIG. 2, and replaced into the opposite channel, as shown in dotted lines in FIG. 3, where it will engage the opposite flange 35. In this way, the unit is completely interchangeable for either left or right hand operation, and all that is required is to remove the sashes from the frame, and reverse them, but before replacing the movable sash, sliding out the element 40 and replacing it in the opposite groove.

Meanwhile, the flange 35 which is not then being used is so arranged that its Weatherstripping 38 will engage the frame of the screen as shown in FIG. 2 for sealing and for preventing rattling.

This invention may be further developed within the scope of the following claims. Accordingly, it is desired that the foregoing description be read as being merely illustrative of an operative embodiment of this invention, and not in a strictly limited sense.

Having described an operative embodiment of this invention, I now claim:

1. A horizontally slidable Window comprising an outer frame, and a fixed framed window and a horizontally slidable framed window supported within said outer frame; each window having an inner, vertical frame element, with the two frame elements overlapping when the windows are closed; a fixed flange having an edge formed integral with the fixed frame window element, said fixed flange being parallel to and spaced at short distance from and extending the full height of its element, and having an inner face facing towards its element, and an outer face remote from its element, with the free end of the flange at its inner face being tapered towards its element as well as its integral edge to form a wedge-like leading edge; said slidable frame element having a T-shaped groove formed therein and extending its full height; an L-shaped in crosssection, elongated strip having a T-shaped tongue formed integral with and extending the length of one leg of the strip, the tongue being slidably, but loosely fitted within said groove, and the other leg of the strip forming a sealing strip and being arranged parallel to and spaced a short distance from the slidable element, and the free edge of said sealing strip being tapered towards the slidable frame element and said one leg to form a wedgelike leading edge; said sealing strip and said flange being arranged in approximately the same vertical plane and opposing each other for frictionally interlocking together to seal said elements together when the window is closed; said slidable window frame element being U-shaped in cross-section, and said T-shaped groove being formed in the base thereof adjacent to one leg of the U-shape, and a second T-shaped groove formed in the base adjacent to the other leg of the U-shape; said T-shape tongue being interchangeably fitted into one or the other T- shaped grooves for selectively positioning the sealing strip adjacent to one or the other of the legs of the U-shaped element for thereby reversing the direction of opening of the sliding Window; and said fixed window frame element having a second flange identical to but formed reversely of the first mentioned flange, with the flanges formed on opposite sides of their element wherein either of the flanges will interlock with the sealing strip.

2. A window comprising an outer frame, and a framed sash slidable in the frame, with one frame member of the frame of the sash forming a leading edge formed of an elongated channel having a base and side walls; a pair of grooves formed in said base; an L-shaped member having a leg formed with a tongue for slidably fitting within either one of said grooves, and a leg formed as a sealing strip arranged parallel to and spaced a short distance from one of said walls when the tongue is fitted into the groove nearest to that one wall; the free end of said strip being tapered into a wedge-shaped crosssection; a fixed element secured within said outer frame and arranged parallel to said channel Walls and arranged to overlap said one wall; a wedge-shaped flange formed on each of the opposite sides of said fixed element approximately parallel to and opposing said sealing strip for selectively interlocking with the sealing strip between the sealing strip and its nearest channel wall.

3. A construction as defined in claim 2 and said fixed element being a frame member of a framed, fixed sash, wherein the slidable and fixed sashes may be selectively mounted within the outer frame for sliding open of the slidable frame in either one of two directions.

4. A construction as defined in claim 3, and including a channel formed on the outer frame for receiving the edge of the slidable sash opposite to its leading edge, said channel having a channel defining leg bent into a curved cross-section for camming the sash away from the plane of the fixed cross-member when the sash is closed.

5. A construction as defined in claim 2, and each of said grooves being T-shaped in cross-section with the free end of the base of the T forming the mouth of the groove; said tongue also being T-shaped in cross-section for endwise sliding into either of the grooves, with a narrow edge bead formed on the lower edges of the opposite ends of the cross-bar forming the T-shaped tongue; said tongue being relatively loosely fitted within either of the grooves so that interlocking of the sealing strip with one of the flanges causes the L-shaped member to pivot relative to its element to thus tightly press one of the beads against an adjacent area of the groove, within which the tongue is fitted, for frictionally locking and sealing the bead within and against the groove.
