9 Claims. (Cl. 160-90) This invention relates to an improved storm sash and screen assembly.

An object is to provide an improved storm sash and screen assembly which is of light weight,

inexpensive construction, and which may be attached within a window opening and left permanently in place therein throughout the year.

Another object is to provide an improved storm sash assembly of the character described which includes in addition to two slidable storm sash adapted to form a complete covering for the window opening, a screen sash which may be lowered when desired to cover the lower portion of the window opening normally occupied by one of the storm sash and such storm sash may be raised opposite the other storm sash over the upper half of the window opening.

Another object is to provide an assembly of the character set forth wherein each of the several sashes may be independently removed for repair or replacement.

Another object is to provide an assembly of the character set forth wherein the sash carrying frame of the assembly is formed of sheet metal in such a. manner as to provide a frame of light weight which possesses the strength and rigidity necessary to serve its purpose and which frame is adaptable within limits to fit window'opemngs which vary slightly in size.

A further object is to provide a structure of the'character described wherein a supplemental sill member is provided which .superposes the permanent sill portion of the rectangular frame unit and which supplemental sill is removable and replaceable with other sill members.

A further object is to provide an assembly as set forth wherein a storm sash is formed of sheet metal in such a manner that a window pane may be readily placed therein or removed therefrom.

A further object is to provide in an assembly of the character described sashes so constructed that the sill of one sash'is provided with a projecting ledge which bears against the header of another sash to form a tight Joint therebetween.

Another object is to provide a sash formed of sheet metal the inner face of which is shaped to exhibit a projecting ledge which serves as a handle to raise the sash.

Another object is to provide a screen sash struc ture formed of sheet metal wherein the screen may be readily installed or replaced.

Other objects, advantages and meritorious features will more fully appear from the following description, accompanying drawings and appended claims wherein:

Figure 1 is a. fragmentary elevation showing my improvement in place in a window opening,

Figure 2 is a horizontal sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view taken on line 3-3 of Figure l,

Figure 4 is. an enlarged cross sectional view through one jamb portion of the assembly frame taken on the same line as Figure 2, f

Figure 5 is a view taken on the line 5-5 of Figure 3, v

Figure 6 is a view taken on the line 6 1-5 of Figure 5, I

Figure 7 is a view taken on the line 1-1 of Figure 3 showing the structure partly broken away,

Figure 8 is a cross sectional view taken through the bottom rail of a storm sash showing a modification as compared with Figure 3 and 4,

Figure 9 is a view taken on the same line as Figure 8 showing a bottom rail of a storm sash of a cross section similar to Figure 4.

Heretofore it has been the practice to provide storm sash and screens for windows of separate assemblies. The storm sash are removed when the screens ar placed on the windows and vice versa. The purpose of this invention is to provide a storm sash and screen assembly which may be secured permanently in place and which includes two storm sash adapted to furnish a complete storm window coverage for the window opening in the winter but one of which storm sash may be elevated and the screen lowered to fill the openings left by the upraised storm sash.

In the several figures of the drawings conventional vertically slidable windows are indicated at in and i2. These windows are mounted for vertical slidable movement between jamb parts It and an inner window stop l8, parting stop 20 and outer stop 22 as shown particularly in Figures 2 and 3. The window sill is indicated as 24 in Figure 3 and the header as 26. The outer upright casing frame is indicated as 28 and the header member as 29. The above structure is conventional and forms no part of the invention except as the associative environment for my storm sash and screen assembly.

The invention resides in providing a storm sash and screen assembly of the character herein after" described. It comprises a unitary framework which is of a generally rectangular shape to fit a window opening as shown in Figure 1 and such assembly is there indicated as 30. This frame may be formed of sheet metal bent to the shape shown in Figures 2 and 3. Figure 2 shows the shape of the upright or jamb portions of the frame and Figure 3 shows the shape of the header and sill portions of the frame. The sheet metal is bent to form an outer face plate 52 which may be attached by screws 34 to the window casing header or upright members. In cross section the jamb.

portions and header portions are similar and exhibit a storm and screen sash engaging portion 53 disposed at a right angle to the portion 52 which portion II is shaped to define three sash guide channels indicated as 34, 55 and 38 in both Figures 2 and 3.

The metal is so shaped in the formation of these guide channels as to provide folded side 'wall portions or what might be termed lands 40.

toward one side of the frame. Upon compression of the springs the removal of the sashes from the sash guide channels may be readily accomplished as will be apparent from Figure '7. The bottom of the guide channel wherein the springs travel is provided with a detent or projection ill over which one of the springs may seat so as to hold the sash in a determined elevated position. The spring will yield however upon downward pressure being exerted on the sash to lower the sash to permit such lowering.

The two storm sash may be disposed as shown in Figure 3 with the screen sash elevated. On

the other hand, the inner storm sash 44 may be raised and the screen lowered. The assembly therefore serves both as a storm sash and screen assembly for both summer and winter use. Or-

dinarily blinds within the house are drawn half way down so the upraised screen or inner upraised storm sash will not be objectionable.

The bottom portion of the frame assembly 35 is indicated in Figure 3 as 52. It is shaped to seat upon the sloping sill 24. To facilitate removal of the storm sash and washing of the window opening sill there is provided a removable sill member 54 shown in Figures 3 and 6 which seats upon the sill portion 52 of the integral rectangular frame. This sill member 54 is channel a 4 I 1 shown in Figures 2, 3 ands. Eachstorm sash is of a generally rectangular shape and in cross section it is bent up out of sheet metal so as to provide an outer tubular portion 54. One portion of the strip which is bent up to form the tube 44 extends up as a lip 54 over the glass pane and is rolled over at the edge and bears thereagainst as illustrated particularly in Figure 4. The other margin of the strip is folded over upon itself as at 68 underneath the edge of the glass 52 and a spline member II shaped as shown in Figure 4 has one angular leg 45 (Figure 4) that is received underneath the fold 54 to hold the splinein place. The spline is angular in cross section and is formed ofresilient material and the other angular leg portion Il' (Figure 4) of the spline is shaped to engage the glass pane as shown in Figure 4.

Another form of spline is shown in Figure 8. This spline which is indicated as 12 has a portion 14 which isreceived within a channel 18 of the sash frame underneath the edge of the glass. The

spline has an upper leg portion however'which bears against the face of the glass and holds it against the upstanding lip ll of the frame memher. The upstanding lip ll of this frame member corresponds to the lip 85 of the frame member shown in Figure 4.

The frame member shown in Figure 8, as also the frame member shown in Figure 9, is the lower shaped in cross section with the bottom portion of the channel disposed upwardly and slightly deformed to provide beads 56 which form parting stops between the sash. The member 54 is cut out at the ends to seat over the side walls or lands 40 that separate the sash guide channels 34, I6 and 35 of the lamb portions of the frame structure. Between these cut outs therelare projecting tongues 58 which are received within the channels 34, 36 and 38 of the lamb portions of the framework.

A separable inner face plate 60 is provided which is secured by screws or the like to the outer stop as shown in Figure 2 and which closes the space between the outer stop and the channel lamb portion of the frame as shown in Figure 2. This strip 60 is adjustable with respect to the side wall of the innermost channel so that re- 42 may have a cross'sectional shape such as is tion is of a length to extend between the side walls 40 of the guide channels in the lamb portion of the frame. It projects inwardly such a distance that when itssash frame is elevated it will bear against the top frame of the adjacent inner sash as shown in Figure 3 where the portion It on the sill of the outerstorm sash is shown as bearing against the top frame member of the inner storm sash. In the same manner portion .0 of the inner storm sash would bear against the top frame member of the screen sash when the screen was lowered and the inner storm sash was raised.

Figure 9 is an enlarged cross section of the structure shown in Figure 2 and is provided with the projecting portion .4 and the spline II as shown in Figures 2 and 4.

The screen sash is shown in enlarged cross section in Figure 4. It is of generally rectangular shape. There is an outer tubular portion II and an inner channel-shaped portion 52. The channel-shaped portion lies within the same plane of the sash as the tubular portion II and is open on one side. Screen wire-l4 is stretched over the sash opening and turned into the channel 02. It will be seen that the channel I! has a greater width at the bottom than at the open side. A channel-shaped spline O4 is provided. The side wall of this channel spline diverge toward the open side so that when the spline is received within the channel 2 over the screen wire it will hold the screen wire securely in place. The side walls of this channel spline it are resilient.
