COMBINED STORM AND FLY SCREEN CONSTRUCTION.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent NO. 5,991, dated August 14, 1900.

Application filed February 16, 1900. Serial No. 5,478. (No model.)

To all whmn it may concern: 1

Be it known that I, JAMES G. RALPH, of Aurora, in the county of Kane, and in the .State of Illinois, have invented certain new the subject of illustration in Fig. 1. Fig.3 is a perspective view of the removable frame shown in Fig. 1, having one of my removable fly-screens applied thereto, another screen being shown detached. Fig; 4 is a perspective view of one'of the hooks and pins with which I secure. my removable frames, and

Fig. 5 is a vertical transverse sectional view of a door having applied thereto my remov-' able fly-screens.

The object of my invention is to provide a construction for windows, &c., by which storm-sash and fly-screens can be interchangeshall possess the advantages of ease of ma nipulation, simplicity, adaptability to ventilation, and ready application to windowframes not specially constructed therefor; and to such ends my invention consists in the combined storm and fiy screen construction for windows, doors, &c., substantially as hereinafter described and claimed.

In carrying my invention into practice I provide a rectangular frame A, which closely fits into the portion of the window-frame outside of the outer beads B and B, which guide the outer window-sash C, such frame A be-' Fig. 2 is a Vertical trans verse sectional view of the window which is sired, there being preferably an upper and a lower sash, which together fill the windowopening. The storm-sashF consists of a rectangula'r frame having glass or other water and wind proof material secured therein. The fly-screen consists of a rectangular frame G, having secured to its outer face a piece of wire-nettingGa The fly-screen frameis prefcrably recessed on its outer surface within the outer lines thereof, leaving a bearingsurface G along its outer edges and a recessed portion G in which the netting G can be secured. Thisconstruction enables the screenframe to fit closely to and bear firmly against the frame A, while at the same time it permits the easy removal and replacement of the netting in case it should become broken or bent. .The storm-sash and fly-screen are secured to the frame by similar means-namely, by

one or more pins H and H, which are driven into the sides of the screen or storm-sash .frame, and a corresponding number of hooks I and I,Wl ll Ch are secured tothe inner surface of the frame A. Each of the hooks conscreen frame.-

Instead of using the frame Athe storm-sash or fiy-screen can be secured to the outer window-beads B and B, in which case it will usually be desirable to provide a filling-piece at the top of the window to provide for closing the gap which will otherwiseoccur above the upper storm-sash or fiy-screen as it descends to engage the pins and books which secure it in place.

In the operation of my device in case the frame A is removable I secure it in place by turning the turn-buttons E and E out of the way, placing the frame A in the window-frame D and against the outer window-beads B and B, and turning the buttons E and E so that they extend over the frame A. The frame A being once in place is preferably left permawindow ready for the reception of the flyiof a supplemental frame that is adapted tojifit into and fill the opening of such Windowtop'of the frame, which when turned to bear iframe, said supplemental frame having be- ;tween its ends one or more cross-bars, and frames that are adapted tobe removably secured to the inner side of such supplemental frame, to cover the openings in such frame with the inclined surface I on the arms of the hooks I and. causes such sash to be forced closely against the frame A while it is supported by the hooks I and I. The windowsash are now lowered to the bottom of the window-opening, and the upper storm-sash is put in place by the same manipulation as Was the lower one. A reversal of these operations removes the storm-sash and makes the screens.-

If desired, a cam K can be pivoted to the onthe removable frame will lock it inplace.

By loosening the upper storm -sash from its hooks, resting it upon the lower storm-sash, and allowing it to lean against the partlyraised lower window-sash, the upper'sash bcing thrown entirely down, a convenient means of ventilation is provided. The degree of opening can be varied by raising and lowering: the lower sash, thus changing the inclination of the storm-sash, which is supported the removable frame there would have to be su ificient surface of such frame exposed in the. opening of the supplemental frame to afford room for attaching the bases of the hooks, thus lessening the area of glass or screen.

My means for removably securing stormsash and fly-screens to the frame A can be readily applied to a door L, as shown in'Fig. 5, thus permitting it to be readily converted'from a storm to a-screen door, and vice versa. In this case I prefer to secure the hooks I and I to the frame or panels M and M and the pins II and H to the inner surfaces of the openings in the door-frame L and preferably in the middle of such space. This permits the frame or panels M and M to be securedcither tothe-inner or to the outer side of the door, or to both sides, and the hooks and pins are entirely concealed by the panel when the doorisviewed from the side having the panel. By providing a door with my removable panels the necessity of taking it off the doorframe and replacing it with another door is obviated, thus saving the labor of unscrewing the hinges and the wearing out of the screw-holes.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is 1. The combination with a window-frame,

To apply the storm-- -fill and be secured in the opening thereof outside of the window-sash, and frames that are adapted to be removably secured to the inside of such supplemental frame and to be iremovcd through the window-opening, substantially as described.

3. The combination with a window-frame,

and to be removed through the window-opening, substantially as and for the purpose described.

4. The combination with aframc'having its outer surface formed in parallel lines, of aframe that is adapted to be removably secured to said first-mentioned frame, said removable frame having. its inner surface window-frame, a frame that is adapted tobe removably secured over the opening in said supplemental frame, hooks on such. supplemental frame, said hookshavin'g arms whose surfacesare inclined to thead-jacent-surface of such supplemental frame, and pins'on the sides of said removable frame,.such pins being adapted to engage said hooks to secure the removable frame to the supplemental frame the opening. in the supplemental and removable frames being. of substantially the same size, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 15th day of February, 1900.

JAMES G. RALPH.
