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
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
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.

form, between which sheathing panel members

erties, is provided for the face part of each sheath

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

Such deformations produce another effect as
well. Running vertically, they strengthen the
face parts of the panel units between the run

»the mounting forces upon the lips 2, the faces of
the sheathing panels are maintained in the com
mon general plane.
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
tongue at each end extending into a groove on
the runner members as at 4. Each stretcher is
