UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE- VALENTINE,MOESLEIN, OF NEW YORK, N.. Y.
CONSTRUCTION OF FLOORS, PARTITIONS, OR THE LIKE I SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 680,062, dated August 6, 1901.
Application filed January 26, 1901. Serial No. 44,709. (No model.)
To aZZ whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, VALENTINE MOESLEIN, a citizen of the UnitedStates, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in the Construction of Floors, Partitions, or the Like, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The invention relates to fireproof structu res and its object is to provide certain new and useful improvements in the construction of floors, partitions, and the like whereby the floor, partition, 850., can be cheaply constructed and rendered perfectly fireproof.
The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same, as will. be fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.
A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all. the views. 1
Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional elevation of the improvement as applied to floors.
Fig. 2 is a transverse section of the same. 1
Fig. 3 is a sectional plan view of the improvement as applied to partitions; and Fig. 4 is a cross-section of the improvement, showing a modified form of supporting-iron.
When building a ceiling, the floor-beams A support on their bottom flanges transverselyextending supporting-irons B, preferably in the shape of T or angle irons and placed a suitable distance apart,as is plainly indicated in Fig. 1. These supporting-irons support sheet-metal laths 0, arranged lengthwise between adjacent floor-beams and each formed with a plurality of bent-u p portions 0, adapted to engage and rest on the supporting-irons B, so that each lath is carried by a plurality of supporting-irons, and the bottom portion of each lath is at or below the plane of the bottoms of the floor-beams A, as is plainly indicated in Fig. 2. The ends C of eachlath are bent L-shaped, so that the ends of adjacent laths O overlap, the lowermost end resting on the corresponding supporting-iron B, as is plainly indicated in Fig. 1.
Each metal lath is formed with the usual struck-up portions, and by the arrangement described the laths 0 form a support for the concrete or other material D filled in between the floorbeams A to produce a fireproof floor. The laths 0 receive on their under surface the usual plaster E, held in position by the struck-up portions of said meta laths C, as is Well known.
The laths C are of such a width as to extend between the outer ends of the bottom flanges of adjacent floor-beams A, as indicated in Fig. 2, and in order to have a metal lath extend under the bottoms of the floorbeanis I prefer to place a narrow sheet-metal lath C on transversely-extending laths 0 under the bottom flanges of a floor-beam, as is plainly indicated in Fig. 2, so that the entire ceiling can be uniformly plastered, the plaster adhering to the metal laths.
In order to form partitions in a building, I arrange the supporting-irons B vertically and in pairs, as indicated in Fig. 3, and at: ta'ch sheet-metal laths O to said supportingirons by having the inwardly-bent portions 0 of said metal laths C extend around the supporting-irons, the bent portions being finally crimped upon the flanges of the irons, as indicated in said Fig. 3. The space be tween the metal laths is preferably filled in with concrete or other material D, but the space may be left empty, if desired; but the plaster E is placed on the outer faces of the sheet-metal laths, so as to give the desired finish to the partition.
From the foregoing it is evident that the floors and partitions are com posed completely of fireproof material, and they can be very cheaply constructed, especially the floors, as no skilled labor whatever is required to place the supporting-irons and thelaths in position or to fill in the space between adjacent floorbeams with fireproof material, the latter resting on the laths as a support.
In order to obtain a perfect rest of the supporting-irons on the floor-beams, I prefer to use T-irons B (see Fig. 4,) having the horiz'o'ntal member bent down at the ends to rest on the floor-beam flange at the junction with the web of the floor-beam, as shown in Fig.
4, the vertical member of the T-iron being cut off at the ends at an angle to allow the bent-down top to rest on the floor-beam flange. By this construction the portions 0 of the said laths having laterallyoflt'set recessed portions passing around the su pporting-irons and securing the laths thereto, the recessed portions holding the major portion of the laths at one side of the supporting-irons opposite the side embraced by the said recessed portions, for the purpose specified.
2. Afireproof floor, comprising spacedsn p porting-irons arranged transversely and resting on the bottom flanges of the floor-beams, and a sheet-metal lath having recessed portions arranged transversely and engaging said supporting-irons, to form a support for the filling-in material between the floor-- beams and the support for the'plaster, as set forth.
lath formed with upwardly-bent portionsv resting on said supporting-irons, said up- .wardlyrbent portions, extending transversely under surface of the lath to or below the plane of the floor-beam flanges, as set forth.
4. Afireproof floor hziving'snpporting-irons resting on the bottom flanges of adjacent floor-beams, sheet-metal laths extending between the fioor-beams and resting on said supporting-irons, said metal laths extending below the bottoms of the floor-beams, and mm row sheet-metal laths extending under the floor-beams and resti'ngon adjacent metal laths, as setvforth. a
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two snbscribingwitnesses. V
VALENTINE MOESLEIN.
