Abstract: An improved loose leaf binder more particularly a binding post having a head of novel design. The novel head design facilitates the locking of binding post securely in the binder and the unlocking for removal from the binder.
Abstract: An adjustable sill and threshold assembly for a door in which a stationary sill base is provided with a longitudinally upwardly opening groove therein and in which a threshold is received in the groove and adapted for adjustable vertical movement therein, including a plurality of generally vertically extending longitudinally spaced adjusting screws which are rotatably captured in the threshold and extending in depending relation, and which are adjustable through apertures in the threshold, and a plurality of sheet metal channel-shaped screw retainer nuts are received and located in the base corresponding to the spacing of the screws and having an aperture for receiving one of said screws therein so that rotation of the screws causes a raising or lowering movement of the threshold.
Abstract: A door light assembly in which a door light and interior and exterior molding members are secured in a door by an improved security clip. The clip is formed from a single piece of spring steel sheet metal and is adapted to be attached to the exterior molding member by means of a screw. Portions of the clip engage the adjacent edges of the door light and the door to hold the door light in place in the door, while other portions of the clip provide an attachment for the interior molding member. The resulting construction provides greater security since the exterior molding member is locked positively in place by means of screws, while at the same time the construction is aesthetically pleasing in that the screw heads are concealed.
Abstract: A door frame construction in which the jambs, threshold, lintel, and trim are of molded construction. The door frame may be molded in one piece and the jambs are provided with clips for attaching the jambs to studs framing the door opening. The clips are adjustably mounted on the jambs so that the door frame may be positioned properly despite misalignment of the studs to which the frame is attached. The jambs also carry clips for attaching the trim to the door frame, and these clips and the clips for mounting the frame on the studs may be formed integrally from a single strip of metal. The side and head trim are preferably formed separately and joined at the job site by means of a special corner construction which allows them to be joined without nails, screws or other external fasteners.
Abstract: A composite sill assembly including a core covered by an extruded section of aluminum cladding and a cover plate of brass fastened to the outer surface of the cladding to improve the appearance of the assembly without appreciably increasing its cost. Opposing surfaces of the cover plate and cladding are isolated from each other to prevent corrosion through galvanic action and this may be accomplished by adhering the cover plate to the cladding with a double faced adhesive tape of foamed neoprene or other suitable material. In this construction the tape therefore serves the dual function of both securing the plate to the cladding and isolating the two members from each other to prevent galvanic reaction and corrosion.
Abstract: An eave thermal baffle for insulation adapted to be fastened on the exterior building wall and between adjacent roof framing members or other framing as may be appropriate. The baffle comprises a flat portion called the plate section adapted to lie on the top plate of the exterior wall and to be fastened thereto or placed against the exterior face of the exterior wall and to be fastened thereto. Extending vertically from this flat portion is a wall portion adapted to be fastened to the inner faces of appropriate framing members. Extending from this wall portion is a main baffle section which extends inwardly of the building and upwardly from the vertical wall. The main baffle section may also be fastened to the inner faces of a pair of appropriate framing members. Upstanding ribs extending along the sides of the main baffle section, and the main baffle section, serve to form a trough or channel for movement of ventilating air.
Abstract: A cut glass panel is formed of a plurality of pieces of glass bonded together to have at least one decorative side exposed to view. The periphery of the panel eventually will be encompassed in a frame in a window, door, or the like. The edges of the cut pieces of glass are arranged in a pattern such that the adjacent edge of one is approximately a mirror image of the adjacent piece and as a result the spacing between the pieces will be substantially of uniform width. The decorative side of each piece of glass will be beveled at its peripheral edges to provide a distinctive visual appearance. The cut pieces of glass are bonded together by material deposited in the space between the pieces of glass to form generally a T-shaped configuration in cross-section. The deposited material is a mixture of epoxy resin and inorganic filler with the filler having a coefficient of thermal expansion closely approximating that of the glass pieces bonded together.
