To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JEREMIAH F. DEAR- :oURFF, a citizen of. the United States, and a' resident of Fairfield, J eiferson county, State of Iowa, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gable-Doors, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to improvements in gable-doors, and has for its object to provide a construction by which such doors may be supported close against the side of a building by means entirely protected and covered by the doors and which will cause the door to simultaneously move both horizontally and vertically.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of an embodiment of the invention, one-half of the door being shown open.
Fig. 2 is a sectional view illustrating the door in rear view and with both sections thereof closed. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4 4 of Fig. 1. 5 is a erspective view of one of the sections of the oor.
Referring to the drawings, it will be seen that the door comprises two sections 1 2, each adapted to close one-half of an opening 3, formed in the wall of a building provided with an inclined roof which projects beyond or overhangs said wall. Said sections are of similar form and size, each having its upper end shaped to extend into a groove or way 1, formed in the projecting section of the roof of the building when the door is in closed position. Each door-section is supported by suitable means arranged between its inner face and the building-wall and adapted to cause said door to slide or move simultaneously vertically and horizontally.
In the embodiment of the invention illustrated a bell-crank lever 6 is fulcrumed on the wall in rear of and adjacent the lower end of each door-section, one arm of said lever being ivotally connected with a stud or pin 7 on t e door and the other arm of said lever extending across the door-section and beyond the inner vertical edge thereof. The
- projecting end of the last said arm of the bell crank lever 6 may be formed into a hook 8 or so shaped as to serve as a handle for rocking the lever, and thereby moving the door to and from a position where it will extend across the opening 3. Each door-section is further connected with the wall adjacent the opening 3 by a link 9, the ends of which are respec- Specification of Letters Patent.

tively pivoted to said wall and to a stud or pin 10 on the door. The studs or pins 7 10 are connected by a bar or. rod 11, and the arms of the bell-crank 6 are connected by a tie 12. It will be seen that all of said parts by which the door is supported are on the innor face or side of the door, and thereby concealed and protected by the sections 1 2.
To secure the door-sections in position to close the opening, they may be connected by a hook 13 or other suitable fastening means.
To open the door when the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 2, it is merely necessary to disengage the hook 13 and lift or push upwardly on the free handle end of either bell-crank lever 6. Such movement will act to rock the said lever 6 about its pivot on the stationary frame of the openingi or other part of the wall, and thereby the oor will be moved downward and laterally until it occupies a position below and at one side of that occupied when it was extending across the opening 3. The link 9 permits the door to move as described, while maintaining it in the proper position relative to the wall in which the opening 3 is formedthat is, the door will not be shifted from the vertical plane it occupies when extending across the opening 3 while moving to its open position.
It will be seen that this invention avoids the necessity for em loying tracks and-hangers on the exterior of a building, as well as the use of special weights for counterbalancing the sliding-door sections. Each section is perfectly balanced and will move easily in either direction.
When the door-sections are in position to close the opening 3, their upper ends will extend Within the grooves 4 in the overhanging sections of the roof, and thereby the opening will be completely and tightly closed and all of the parts by which the door is supported and moved will be completely coveredand protected fromthe weather.
Having described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The combination with a gable-wall having an opening therein, of a door or closure movable vertically and laterally to and from said opening and consisting of two independent sections, bell-crank levers fulcrumed on the wall in the space between the door and, said wall, one arm of each lever having one end projecting beyond the inner vertical edge of I In testimony whereof I aflix my signature the adjacent door-section, and the other arm in presence of two Witnesses. of each lever being connected to said doorsection, and links arranged in the space be- I JEREMIAH DEARDURFF' tween and pivotally connected to the Wall Witnesses:
and said door-sections, substantially as and 'W or- ARTHUR G. JORDAN, for the purpose described. l ANTON OARLsoN.
