Application ‘August 28, 1936, Serial No. 98,397 a claims.v (o1. 1s9-_55) This invention relates to a combined shutter and awning structure designed for use in pro tecting the windows and doors of buildings. The primary object of the invention‘is to pro 5 vide a device of this character which may be moved to a sloping position providing an awning, or extended to a position within the frame of the closure with which the device is used, to protect the closure against hurricanes or violent storms, 10 or for general protection of the building while the building is unoccupied. An important object of the invention is to provide a device of this character including an operating means of a construction to permit the 15 device to be readily and easily adjusted for use either as an awning or shutter. A still further object of the invention is the provision of a device which may be moved to a position to only partially close the window or door 20 frame with which the device is used, insuring proper ventilation, the operating mechanism holding the device in its positions of adjustment. Referring to the drawings: Figure 1 is an elevational view of a combined 25 awning and shutter, a portion of the device hav cludes an outer member 8 and an inner member 9, the outer and inner members being connected by means of the end pieces I0 which are formed with offset portions II providing guideways for the bars I2 which form’ a part of the adjustable section I3 of the body portion. This adjustable section I3 is designed to slide out of the body portion when the device is moved to a vertical position, or to a position providing a shutter to completely close the window. Con 10 nected with the adjustable section I3 are pivoted arms I 4 which have their inner ends connected to the operating shaft I5 which is secured to the window frame, and mounted in brackets I6. One of the brackets I6 is provided with bear ings in which the shaft I1 operates, the shaft Il being provided with a crank handle I8, by means of which the shaft I‘! may be rotated. Mounted on one end of the shaft I1 is a worm I 9 that meshes with the gear 20 which is secured to the shaft I5 so that when the shaft I1 is ro tated, the. rotary movement will be imparted to the shaft I5 moving the arms I4 to operate the adjustable section I3. The reference character 2! designates the bracket to which the arms 22 25 ing been broken away illustrating the operating are connected, there being provided springs 23 mechanism. Figure 2 is a sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Figure 1. Figure 3 is an enlarged sectional view taken on line 3—3 of Figure 1. Figure 4 is an enlarged sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Figure 2. Figure 5 is a transverse sectional view taken on 35 line 5—5 of Figure 1. Figure 6 is a sectional view taken on line 6--B of Figure 2. Figure '7 is a side elevational view illustrating a modi?ed form of the invention, designed for use 40 with casement windows. Figure 8 is a sectional view taken on line 8—8 on the bracket, which springs urge the arms 22 upwardly towards the shaft I1. Cables 24 are connected with the free ends of the arms 22, which cables also connect with the adjustable section I3, as shown by Figure 1. Thus it will be seen that when the body portion is moved to a of Figure 7. , Figure 9 is a detailed View illustrating a spring which operates to urge the device outwardly when 45 the device is moved to provide an awning. Referring to the drawings in detail: The frame of a window is indicated generally by the reference character 5 and as shown, is provided with brackets 6 which are secured to 50 the frame near the upper end of the window. These brackets provide a support for the rod 1 which in turn provides the support for the combined awning and shutter. The combined awning and shutter comprises a body portion 55 constructed preferably of sheet metal and in position as shown by Figure 1 of the drawings, the springs will be placed under tension, and will re turn the arms 22 to their normal positions, as the 35 body portion swings upwardly to provide an awn ing, thereby retracting the adjustable section I3, moving the adjustable section I3 to the position shown by Figure 2, providing an awning. When the crank handle I8 is operated in the reverse di rection the arms [4 will swing downwardly ex tending the adjustable section I3 to a position to completely close the window frame. In order that the device may be operated with the minimum amount of exertion on the part of the operator, coiled springs 25 are provided, and are connected with the body portion, the opposite ends of the coil springs 25 being anchored to the brackets 6 with the result that as the body portion swings downwardly these springs 25 will be placed 50 under tension, to urge the body portion upward ly when the crank handle is operated to swing the body portion to its upper-most position. In the modi?ed form of the invention as shown by Figure '7 of the drawings the body portion 55 2 2,108,926 includes an upper section 26 and a lower section 21, the sections being pivotally connected at 28, so that the section 21 will be supported in such spaced relation with respect to the window frame, that the device may be used with casement win dows such as shown at 29 in Figure 7 of the draw mgs. From the foregoing it will be seen that due to the construction shown and described, I have pro 10 vided a device which may be used to provide an awning for a window or door, and that by mov ing an operating mechanism, the device may be frame, and said arms adapted to retract the ad justable shutter section when the body portion is moved to its inclined position. 2. In a combined awning and window shutter, a hollow body portion, means for pivotally con necting the upper end of the body portion to a window frame, a shutter section slidably mounted within the hollow body portion, a pair of pivoted arms mounted within the body portion, coiled springs for normally urging the arms in one direc 10 tion, ?exible members connecting the free ends of the arms to the shutter section and adapted to moved to a position providing a shutter to com normally urge the shutter section to a position pletely close the opening, protecting the window within the hollow body portion, and means for 15 or door against hurricanes or violent storms. Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is: I 1. In a combined awning and window shutter, a'hollow body portion, an adjustable shutter sec tion slidably mounted within the body portion and adapted to extend beyond the end of the body portion, a pair of yieldable arms mounted within the body portion, cables connecting the arms to the adjustable shutter section, arms pivotally 25 connected to the movable shutter section, means for operating the arms whereby the body por tion is moved from an inclined position provid ing an awning, to a position closing the window 15 swinging the body portion on its pivot. 3. In a combined awning and window shutter, a hollow body portion, means for pivotally con necting the-body portion to a window frame, said body portion having offset portions formed along its longitudinal side edges, providing guideways, 20 a shutter section, bars secured to the longitudi nal side edges of the body portion and disposed in the guideways, slidably mounting the shutter section within the body portion, means for swing ing the body portion on its pivot, and means for 25 restricting movement of the shutter section with in the body portion.
