Hohl, Shaker Heights, Ohio Application March 5, 1934, Serial No. 714,021 4 Claims. (Cl. 18S-_85) This invention relates to wall construction in to be mounted beside each other upon the wall which sheathing is employed, and is particularly body, adjacent end parts only appearing in the adapted, as will appear, to exterior sheathing ap drawing. plied in the form of panel members. The invention contemplates a panel member unit of sheet metal having a high glossy finish as of vitreous enamel. An object of the inven tion is to provide that the reñecting effect of such lustrous ñnish shall be diminished as to the, "10 observer, so that the glistening appearance' of the wall will be diminished. As will appear, this is accomplished by deformations in the exposed sur face. ' ` The invention also contemplates a manner of mounting the panel units generally similar to the arrangement disclosedin the copending applica tion, Serial No. 655,224 filed February 4, 1933 jointly by Munro W. Copper, Jr., and me, and my copending applications, Serial No. 673,190 filed May 27, 1933, and Serial No. '711,176 filed Feb ruary 14, 1934. In these said applications is dis A pair of runners B, B, are provided extending4 horizontally in spaced relation and suitably Ul mounted on the frame or body parts of the wall not here shown. The runners B may be of ex truded metal, of uniform section, generally of channel form opening outwardly as indicated, to provide the horizontally extending channel cavi ties l, l. _ Each sheathing panel unit A is generally rec tangular, preferably of greater width than height, and is provided at its horizontal edges with lips 2 inturned to enter the cavities l of the corre- i spending pair of runners B, to engage the near ` sides of the latter with resilient characteristics. Obviously by this arrangement a panel unit is mounted for support upon a pair of runner mem bers by simply pushing the sheathing panel, suit ably positioned. A backing 3 of non-metallic , form, between which sheathing panel members material having heat and sound insulating prop erties, is provided for the face part of each sheath are mounted, by engagement of lips upon the ing panel unit. closed a system of parallel runners of channel 25 panel members, projecting into the runner chan ` nels. The nature of interengagement of the mounting parts tends to subject the panel parts between the runners to slight bending and/or tensile stresses. A further object of the inven V30 tion is to provide that the face parts of the panel members shall not be deformed by such stresses; and as will appear the invention utilizes for the purpose, the same deformations by which the glistening appearance is controlled, as already 35 described above. The runner members B are pro vided with the shoulders indicated, in which the backing panels 3 are positioned, and by which a stop is provided for the inward mounting move ment of the panel units. As indicated the panel members themselves are of `sheet metal. They are preferably faced with vitreous enamel or the like, baked on, and pro viding a surface of extremely high luster-too high to be serviceable as an exterior finish. That Said copendíng applications and this invention the effect of this lustrous surface be diminished, the face parts of the panels are provided as indi cated in Figs. 1 and 2, with deformations run as well, contemplate the employment of non-me tallic heat and sound insulating backing means for the face parts ‘of the panel units. A fur 40 ther object of this invention is to provide im proved means for securing such backing, as will tions may be of 4such depth to produce shadows, but at any rate they break up the plain reiìecting surface that would otherwise result from the high luster finish. The appearance of the surface from ning between their lip parts 2. Such deforma appear. any distance is thus softened and made more The exact nature of this invention together with further objects and >advantages thereof will the purpose. 45 be apparent from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view partly in sec tion and. partly broken away and taken generally as from the outside, in elevation, showing the ele "50 ments essential to an embodiment of the inven tion; and Fig. 2 is an enlarged detail in horizontal section at a vertical joint between panel units, as indicated by the line 2-2 in Fig. 1. With reference now to the drawing, A, A rep 55 resent generally a pair of sheathing panel units pleasing, with just enough luster remaining for A Such deformations produce another effect as well. Running vertically, they strengthen the face parts of the panel units between the run ners B. Thus, regardless of stresses set up by »the mounting forces upon the lips 2, the faces of the sheathing panels are maintained in the com mon general plane. 50 At each vertical joint between adjacent sheath ing panel units, astretcher is provided, slidably to extend between the corresponding pair of runners B. Each stretcher is provided with a 55 2 2,105,245 tongue at each end extending into a groove on the runner members as at 4. Each stretcher is generally of channel form between its runners, Wardly of the general plane of the wall, a metallic sheathing panel having a rectangular face part, as indicated particularly in Fig. 2, with a pair Cil of side members 5 forming a channel cavity 6 therebetween. The side edges of the panel units are provided with lips l, the parts being so pro portioned and arranged that the lips 'I enter their cavities 6 when panel units and stretchers are tending into and along said channel cavity, said support member having a laterally projecting 10 mounted on the runners. part seating in said recess and there conñned by Preferably also the arrangement is such that the parts maintain their spaced relation as in Fig. 2. The stretch ers are also provided with laterally extending flanges 8 adapted to provided shoulders for posi tioning the side edges of the panel backing means longitudinally extending flange cooperative with the channel side part of said support member to provide a shoulder recess, and an insulating board backing for said panel face part having an edge said panel face part. ` 2.

The stretchers are mounted between their runners and suitably adjusted therealong, and the sheathing panel units are then applied to the assembly simply by pressing 25 them to engage their lips2 in the channels of the runners; the stretchers being of course suitably positioned along the runners that one underlies shoulder recesses, a member disposed transverse ly of said support members and carried at the opposite end portions thereof by said ilanges, said last mentioned member being formed to provide a shoulder recess at the side thereof, a sheathing panel carrying a projecting lip extending into the channels of said‘support members and cooperat 25 ing with the walls thereof for holding said panel to said members, and an insulating board back the vertical joint between each adjacent pair of ing for said panel having edge portions seating sheathing panels between a common pair of run in said shoulder recesses of all said members and 30 ners. It will be appreciated that sheathing panel units will be applied to extend both above and below each runner although such additional panel units do not appear in Fig. 1. The backing mem bers 3 are applied to the assembly each immedi 35 ately before the application of its îsheathing panel thereover, and the stretchers are conven iently positioned each against a backing member 40 with an inwardly turned lip part on one edge ex there conñned by sai-d panel. 30 Y 3.

Plastic sealing cement is then applied to these channel cavities about each sheathing panel unit, as illustrated and described in the copending applications to which reference has been made.
