With Means To Attach Canopy Or Netting To Unmodified Bed Or Bedstead Patents (Class 5/DIG1)
  • Patent number: 4926512
    Abstract: An inexpensive and lightweight folding paperboard beach chair is formed from a single scored blank of paperboard. The elongated paperboard body has two spaced-apart and transverse score lines which define a bottom leg support panel, a middle seat support panel, and a top back support panel wherein the bottom and top panels are adapted to be folded so as to overlay the middle panel. A plurality of spaced-apart foldable support panels extend across the back of the top back support panel to provide support for the panel when the chair is unfolded, and are further adapted to fold upon and overlay the top panel when the chair is folded. An aperture is provided adjacent to the side edge of each of the top, middle, and bottom panels and positioned so as to be in vertical registration and to thereby form a carrying handle when the chair is folded into its closed configuration with the top and bottom panels overlaying the middle panels thereof.

  • Patent number: 4765006
    Abstract: The conversion of a conventional bed, such as a child's bed, into a play area is accomplished by means of a free-standing enclosure composed of two sub-assemblies of paperboard, each comprising a center panel proportioned to span the width of the bed and a pair of fragmentary side panels hingedly connected to the ends of the center panel. The surfaces of these panels may be provided with representations establishing a desired atmospheric or locational theme, e.g. a castle, a fire engine or a military vehicle. Since the enclosure is free-standing, it can be used independently of a bed to provide a play area, and it is also readily collapsed or disassembled into flat component parts for easy storage.

  • Patent number: 4606964
    Abstract: A bulked web composite comprises a differentially tensioned reticulated web of elastic material bonded to at least one gatherable web whereby, upon release of the tensioning forces, the gatherable web or webs are gathered by the reticulated web with different degrees of bulking in different areas due to the different tension levels of the reticulated web. Also disclosed is a method of making a bulked web composite by the steps of: forming a reticulated web of elastic material and elongating at least portions of the web by differentially tensioning it, and bonding the differentially tensioned web to at least one gatherable web to form a composite. The composite is then relaxed whereby portions of the gatherable web are gathered by the contracted reticulated web with different degrees of bulking in different areas. Bulked web composites of such type may be employed to form disposable swim wear, towels, wash cloths, and the like.

  • Patent number: 4584729
    Abstract: A disposable total spinal immobilization backboard of multiple ply corrugated material impregnated with a waxing substance by a cascading process which acts to both waterproof and to improve the strength and rigidity of the backboard. A panel has a width of about 16 inches and a length of about 6 feet and is reinforced to allow a deflection of less than 1/2 inch either laterally or longitudinally when exposed to a weight of 300 pounds. Handholds receive hands for the carrying of an injured party. An injured party is securely strapped to strap receiving means, including handholds whereby total spinal immobilization is effectuated for safe and secure transfer.

  • Patent number: 4253206
    Abstract: An inexpensive, light weight body support adapted for use in a casket to support a corpse. The body support consists of a pair of bed sections which are formed from blanks of sheet material such as paper board and which are positioned end-to-end in the casket. When set up, each bed section has a generally flat top panel and depending upright side panels having vertical dimensions that decrease progessively from the head portion to the foot portion to support the corpse in an inclined position. The top panel is scored longitudinally enabling it to sag under the weight of the corpse to restrain its sideways movement in the casket. Triangularly shaped base members are disposed transversely of the bed sections in the casket to support the bed sections by engaging their side panels. A corpse whose weight exceeds a predetermined magnitude will cause the side panels to collapse around the base members lowering the corpse in the casket.

  • Patent number: 4139918
    Abstract: A lightweight, disposable transportation casket, including a shell section with a cover releasably attached thereto by securing straps. Mattress sections are supported inside the shell on a liner and the remains rest on the mattress sections. The sides of the container cover form a skirt and flare outwardly to form a handgrip by which the casket can be lifted. The remains are wrapped in a cover and rest on the mattress sections, and are held in place by straps. A headrest maintains the head in the desired position, and indicia on the cover identifies the head end of the casket.
