STORM SHUTTER
Edward W. Reiben'Mia‘mi, Fla.
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

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.
