BAY-Winoow.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 568,041, dated September 22, 1896. Appnmion nea r1-.1y 24, 1894.` serial No. 518,441. oro modela To all whom t may concern,.- y
Be it known that I, LEONARD G. QUACKEN- Boss, a citizen of the United States, residing y at Chicago,in the county of Cook and State of accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification.
Myinvention relates to bay-windows adapted to beattachedto the frame of ordinary windows or t V such of the openin gs in a building as may be desired. r
v My bay-window is pivoted above and below and adapted to be turned to expose the eXterior thereof to the `inner apartment. I have sometimes placed my bay-window in an opening above a mantel. The root` of my baywindow I provide with a combined hashing and lock, and when desired I providea small window above and below thev bay, in which case short sash are substituted for the fullsized sash ordinarily employed. When my bay-window is placed in the chimney-breast over the fireplace, I employ a construction by which'the opening may be wider than heretofore. This I accomplishby dispensingwith a portion ofthe masonry between the fines `and in the space substituting a frame, within to an ordinary window-frame, the ordinary sash being removed and short sash being substituted. Fig. 2 shows a sectional plan of my revolving bay-window of modified form combined with a chimney-breast. Fig. 3 isa modified form of the locking device, shown Referring now` to Fig. l,` it will be seen that the revolving bay-window a is'pivoted at l) c to the surrounding frame d, which I have called the closure-frame." This closureframe is adapted to be fitted to the frame of any ordinary window, or to any other of the openings in a building Where it is desired to erect my bay-window. Hinged to thefloor of the window I provide the seat e, which, when in the position shown, rests upon the top frame of the inner short sash f. The Vroof g is secured to the closure-frame d above the bay, and an automatically-operated lashing his provided between the closure-frame" d and the lower rail of the upper short sash 't'. The closure-frame is cut away, so that when the sash t' is lowered the plate hyconstituting the flashing, turning on itspivot, mayn'ot obstruct they downward movement of said sash. In front of the upper sash t' I have provided a screen 7s, and in front of the lower,
short sash j' I have provided a Ventilatingopening Z in the closure-frame. This ventilator lmay be` constructed-so as to adjust the size of theopening as circumstances may require. When the shelf-"6 is folded over onto the floor of the bay-window, air from `the outside may pass through the ventilator one manner ofholding the same in position and flashing the joints between the standards i i in m of the revolving bay and the closureframe n n. Slots are cut in the standards m m and in the frame n n in position to register when the window is in. its normal position, as shown. ing formed by each pair of slots, I place a stripo. These` strips o o are of such width that they may be continued within the slots In these slots, that is, in the open- IOO serted the strips o will still project into the slots provided in the standards m m. As many screwl devices j) p may be provided for moving the strips o back and forth and locking them in position as may be required. I have found two for each strip sufficient, howcyer.
The Iioor q of the bay-window may be eX- tended to form a platform q of such size and shape as may be desired.
The chimney maybe considered as divided or branched and having lines r o' on opposite sides, which are suitably lined.
It is often desirable to place a windowframe in the bieast over a iireplace where it is necessary to`extend vertical smoke-fines into the same wall. These smoke-nues are usually extended with lire-clay flue-linings surrounded on all sides by walls of masonry. On account of the said walls which are placed between the iiues it has not in most cases been possible to obtain so wide a window as desirable. Therefore with my device I propose to dispense with the usual amount of masonry between the .fines and to substitute the frame substantially as shown in Fig. 2. The vertical T-bars r r2 of the same, being connected horizontally at the top and bottom or on a radius above, will give strength and support for the bearing arch or lintel that may be required above, while the ventilated spaces and sheathing-walls r3 r3, of plasterin g (on expanded metal or wire) or hair-felt, asbestos, or other non-conducting material,will give protection to the panels of wood or other work that may be required forthe interior 'finish surrounding the window in the apartment, at the same time saving the space which would ordinarily be occupied by the wall usually placed for strength and protection between the flues.
The air-space next to the fines should be ventilated, as indicated at r4 r4, or in other suitable manner.
In Figs. 3, 4:, and 5 the dashing-strip s is adapted to be moved by the eccentric pieces s', which are mounted on a shaft projecting through the horizontal upper frame s2 of the bay-window, and operated by handles s3, that is to say, the upper rail s4 of the closureframe, to which the bay-window is pivoted at the center of the frame s2, is provided with a piece S5, extending across the same above the frame 32, By turning the handle s3, as shown in Fig. 4, the plate s is raised and inserted into the slot or space formed by said piece si, so as to securely lock the bay-window in position and make the joint between the same and the closure-frame secure.
In Fig. 6 the lock and flashing are inserted in the closure-frame and made accessible at all times in all positions of the bay from the interior apartment. y
As thus described either form of `my pivoted bay-window, by means of the locking device shown in Fig. 6, or any equivalent thereof, may be turned so as to project outside, as is usual, to be locked in position, or the same may be turned half-way around to expose the plants or whatever may be contained within the bay-window directly to the outside air, and in this position may be securely locked and the joints made tight by ilashin g, the same as when in its other or normal position. A
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. The combination with the closure-frame and bay-window,of the lflashing-strips adapted to be moved by the eccentric pieces s, the slot or piece S5 under which said plate s is adapted to be inserted to lock the bay-window in position and make the joint between the same and the closure-frame secure, substantially as specified.
2. The combination with the rotatable baywindow placed in an opening in the chimneybreast, of the fluesrroneither side the opening, said ilues being separated from said opening by ventilated spaces and sheathing-walls, whereby the amount of masonry between the iiues heretofore required'is reduced to increase the size of the opening, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
3. The combination with the window-opening in the chimney-breast, ofthe flues 0' r on either side of the opening, said flues being separated from said opening by ventilated spaces and sheathing -walls, whereby the amount of masonry between theflues heretofore required is reduced to increase the size of the opening, substantially as described.
In witness whereof I hereunto subscribe my name this 21st day of July, A. I). 1894.
