Damato, Des Plaines, Ill. (1910 Verde Drive, Arlington Heights, Ill. 60004), Sheldon Lazar, 6429 N. Oakley Ave., Chicago, Ill. 60645, and Richard B. Zittler, 178 Cooper Road, Hoffman Estates, Roselle, Ill. 60172 Filed July 14, 1965, Ser. No. 471,960 Int. Cl. E04b I/00; E02d 35/00; E06b N04 US. Cl. 52127 2 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE The instant invention concerns floor moulding assemblies consisting of snap brackets of suitable material, having fiat central body portions for engaging the wall with which they are associated, and also having apertures for screws to be driven into the wall so as to secure each snap bracket to the wall adjacent the fioor. The brackets are so designed as to cooperate with each other, with the associated wall, and with the molding strips and with corner ends.

The present invention relates to precut sheet material floor moulding assemblies, and methods of installation of the same, and is particularly concerned with an im proved construction for such assemblies for original installation or replacement of wooden floor mouldings, along the floors of rooms against the walls, and also on window casings or door casings.

One of the objects of the invention is the provision of such an improved construction for floor moulding assemblies, that includes snap brackets made of suitable material and provided with flat central body portions for engaging the wall and having apertures for screws or the like to be driven into the wall to secure each snap bracket to the wall adjacent the floor, each snap bracket having an outward offset portion at its upper end terminating in each case in a portion parallel to the wall with an end edge at right angles to the length of said snap bracket and adapted to receive the downwardly turned upper edge portion of one of the moulding strips in recess between the top of a snap bracket and the wall, said assembly also including a plurality of lengths of sheet metal moulding of ornamental exterior profile, each length of moulding having a central body portion depending on the shape of the moulding to be replaced or installed, and each length having an upper hook formation with a U bend at the top and a depending flange adapted to hook over the upper end of any snap bracket, wherever located, and each length having its central body supporting along its lower edge a retaining flange extending at right angles to the wall and snap bracket and terminating at the extreme edge of said retaining flange in an u wardly bent camming edge to cam over the end of any snap bracket into a recess provided by the snap bracket construction at its lower end in each case, the central body of each snap bracket supporting a depending portion rounded forwardly and backwardly at its end and extending diagonally forward from the wall to provide camming surfaces on bracket and moulding whereby the lower edge of any moulding may snap over the lower end of any bracket to be removably retained thereon.

Another object of the invention is the provision of an improved moulding construction in which the lengths of moulding may be constructed to engage each other end to end to provide any desired or needed length of moulding; and in which lengths of moulding may be provided with right hand corner ends and others with left hand corner ends, these right hand and left hand corner ends having an end profile in each case, as required by the body shape or profile of the moulding which is to be engaged at right angles with the moulding on the next wall with a right hand corner end or a left hand corner end, as the case may be, as such an installation will accomplish a finished corner moulding appearance in every case.

Another object is the provision of an improved construction for the extreme upper and lower edges of the moulding, with a backwardly bent edge thus eliminating any sharp dangerous edges on the moulding.

Another object is the provision of an improved construction having a minimum number of parts, in which the parts may be made economically, in which the parts may be used over and over again, and the cost of which may :be so reduced that the price thereof is within the range of a vast number of users.

A further object of the invention is the provision of such mouldings which may be made of any metal or material including stainless steel, tin covered steel foil of any thickness, and which may be provided with paper or other reinforcing and with any wood finish or painted in any color.

Another object of the invention is the provision of an improved moulding assembly and method of installation, the cost of which is greatly reduced over that of the prior art, such as wooden moulding, the provision of moulding and method which may serve for a longer period of time without repair or replacement, and the provision of a moulding assembly which is more economical and which may be sold at a lower price within the means of a vast number of purchasers.

Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, the present invention comprises a precut sheet material moulding assembly indicated in its entirety by 10, having a snap bracket 12, of suitable rigid material having a flat central body portion 14, for engaging the wall 16 of a room, and having apertures 18, for securing members to be driven into the wall 16, to secure the snap bracket 12, to the wall 16, adjacent the floor 20, of the room.

Said snap bracket may have an offset portion 22 at its upper end, terminating in a portion 24, substantially parallel to the wall 16, with an upper end edge 26, at right angles to the length of said bracket 12. The sharp bracket 12 is adapted to receive the downwardly turned 28, upper edge portion of a mounding strip 30, in a recess, between the top of the snap bracket 12 and the wall 16.

The assembly also includes a length of sheet material moulding of ornamental exterior profile, said length of moulding having a central body portion 34, the profile of which corresponds to the shape of the moulding to be replaced or installed. The length has on its upper rear side, an upper hook 3 6 formation with a U-bend at the top, and a depending flange 28, adapted to hook over the upper end 26 of the snap bracket 12.

The length of moulding is substantially, uniform in cross-sectional shape throughout its length, to engage a snap bracket 12 wherever the snap bracket 12 is located along the wall 16. The length of moulding has its central body portion 34, supporting along its lower edge, a retaining flange 38, extending at right angles to the wall 16 and snap bracket 12, and terminates at the extreme edge of 40, of said retaining flange 38 in an upwardly bent camming edge.

This camming edge is adapted to cam over the end of the snap bracket 12 into a recess 42, provided by the snap bracket construction at its lower end. The snap bracket 12 supports at its lower end, a bracket flange depending from the central body of the snap bracket 12 and rounded forwardly 44 and backwardly with respect to the wall at said flange which also extends diagonally forward fro-m the wall to form a recess 42, for receiving the retaining flange 38 of said moulding. Said retaining flange 38 is biased upwardly with respect to the flange on said bracket 12 to be resiliently retained on the'bracket 12 when the moulding is hooked over the upper edge of the bracket 12 and pressed inward at the bottom of said moulding, to cam over the said bracket flange 44 into the recess 42, behind said flange, in engagement with said wall to retain the molding removably on the wall.

Any number of brackets 12 may be provided on the Wall and located at suitable spacing FIG. 11, with respect to each other to support the moulding on the wall. The moulding assembly may be secured to the wall with Wood screws 46 or equivalent nails of adhesive.

The moulding assembly may be provided in lengths with squared ends 48, FIG. 2, fitting against each other at the squared ends, when secured on the wall, to provide moulding of any suitable length for any wall with continuous finished appearance, and a bracket 12, FIG. 2, may be located beneath the squared ends of the moulding.

In order to finish the moulding at the corners of a room, some lengths of moulding, FIG. 1, may be cut with right hand 50, or left hand 52, ends for corners, the ends 50, 52, corresponding to the profile of the moulding being used.

In order to avoid sharp edges, on the moulding, these edges may be backwardly bent as at 54, to avoid sharp edges, and the snap brackets 12, shaped to accommodate the bent in the edges 54. At the corners of a moulding assembly, about a window frame, FIG. 17, the moulding may be mitre cut.

Referring to FIGS. 11 to 15, Where the moulding is installed about a door or window frame, the bracket 12', may have its body provided with with an inwardly projecting integral flange of U shape '56, to be inserted in a complementary slot 58 in the frame of a window, door, or the like, for aiding in the secur-ement of the brackets about said frame. The backwardly bent edges of the moulding in this case FIG. 14, may have the edges rolled as at '60, to better engage the bracket. In this case also, FIG. 15, the outer ends of the brackets may be rounded laterally, as at 62, for better engagement with the edges of the moulding.

Referring to FIGS. 18, 19, the lower frame member 64, of a window frame, may have an upwardly open channel, with tabs 66, punched out of its forward wall, and a sheet metal sill 68 has an upper depending flange 70 to hook over said tabs, and the sill has a top wall, front wall, bottom wall, and end closures 72. The end closures 72, FIG. 19, fit in the ends of the sill, and the sill is secured to the wall by a screw 66, through a hole 78, in the front wall of the sill.

Referring to FIG. 10, and in particularly to FIGS. 6 to 10, the bracket 12 may be provided with a depending guide 74, carried by the lower end of the bracket and adapted to lie against the wall to which the bracket is to be attached, the said guide projecting downward to space the guide from the floor 20 in this case.

The guide is provided with a straight edge 76, at its lower edge, at right angles to the length of the bracket. The bracket 10, FIG. 10, may have an upward bend 78' for camming from the wall, and a prong 80 adjacent straight edge 76 carried by the bend to be driven into the wall. The prong 80 may have barbs 82, punched out of it and faced outwardly to resist the rem-oval of the bracket.

Referring to FIG. 3, this shows the use of a cove moulding 84, of such size and shape that it extends beyond the associated bracket or trim, and the ends of this cove moulding are closed by sheet metal three-sided insertion caps 86, where the cove moulding extends beyond the trim.

While we have illustrated and described a plurality of preferred embodiments of the invention, many modifications may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention, and we do not wish to be limited to the precise details of construction set forth, but desire to avail ourselves of all changes within the scope of the appended claims.
