Application June 1, 1935, Serial No. 24,522
4 Claims. (oi. mag-s5),
This invention relates to building structures,
and more particularly to face-work building struc
tures, and has for an object the provision of new
and improved structures of this character.
In the drawing accompanying this speci?cation
and forming a part of this application, I have
shown, for purposes of illustration, embodiments
which my invention may assume, and in the
drawing:
Figure 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of a
building structure, embodying the invention, dis
closing parts of the same in horizontal section,
and disclosing parts broken away to more clearly
illustrate the construction,
Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary horizontal
sectional View, corresponding substantially to the
line 2-2 of Figure 1,
Figure 3 is a View similar to Figure 2, corre
sponding substantially to the line 3-3 of Fig
20 ure 1,
Figure 4 is an enlarged fragmentary hori
zontal sectional view, corresponding substantially,
to the line 4—4 of Figure 1,
Figure 5 is a fragmentary perspective View,
ll C1 similar to Figure 1, and disclosing a different, em
bodiment of the invention, while
Figure 6 is an enlarged horizontal sectional
view, corresponding substantially to the line 6-45
of Figure 5.
‘As shown in Figures 1 through 4 of the draw
ing, the invention comprises a building structure,
wherein a plurality of facing panels II) are dis
posed edge to edge and ?atwise along the surface
of a supporting wall II, which may be the front
' wall of a building or the like, and the panels III
Lit!
are secured in position along said wall by a
plurality of sets of securing means, each set being
indicated generally by the reference character I2,
and adapted to be positioned between juxtaposed
edges of each pair of panels I0; the sets I2 are
duplicates in construction and operation and only
one of the same will be described in detail.
Each of the sets I2 comprises an elongated
member I3, preferably of sheet metal, and chan
" nel-shaped in cross-section, having an inter
mediate portion I4, and integrally formed out
wardly extending webs I5, which merge with in
turned overhanging ?anges I6, spaced apart to
define a continuous slot H. The intermediate
portion I4 of the member I3 is adapted to rest
flat against the face of the supporting wall II,
and at intervals along its length is provided with
slots I8, each elongated in the direction of the
length of the member I3. Associated with each of
the slots IB is an anchoring member I9, com
prising a screw-bolt 20, extending through the
slot I8, having a head 21 bearing against the
outer face of the intermediate portion I4, and a
shank threaded into a wedge part 22», and the
wedge part 22 is encased in an expansible sleeve
23, which may be of lead. The wedge part 22
and sleeve 23 may be accommodated in a suitable
cavity 24 formed in the supporting wall II, and
rotation of the bolt 20‘ serves to draw the wedge
part 22 inwardly, and to expand the sleeve 23 into
anchoring engagement with the wall of the cavity
24. When all of the anchoring members I9 have
been tightened, the member I3 is ?xedly secured
to the supporting wall I I, and the slots I8 permit
necessary movement incident to expansion and 15
contraction under varying conditions.
Cooperating with each of the ?xed members I3
is a plurality of connecting members 25, each pref -
erably in the form of an oblong piece of metal
su?iciently long to prevent turning when inserted
within the channel-shaped formation of the
0
member I3, said connecting members 25 being
adapted to be inserted into the channel-shaped
formation of the members I3 through transverse
slots 26 formed in the flanges I6, then shifted out 25
of line with the slots, 26, thereby to present en
gaging portions 21 adapted to abut the inner sur
faces of the overhanging ?anges I6. Threaded
through each of the connecting members 25, is an
actuating screw 28, which extends outwardly
through the slot I1, and at its outer end is pro
vided with a kerfed head 29, and carried by the
shank of the actuating screw 28 is a clamping
member 30, of greater size than the slot I1, and
which provided bearing portions 3| and 32 adapt- 3
ed to cooperate with the outer surfaces 33 of the
?anges I6 to provide clamping means.
Each of the sets of securing means I2 is adapted
to secure juxtaposed edges of a pair of the panels
In to the supporting wall II, and the panels II] 40
are formed for cooperation with the securing
means I2, each of the panels In comprising a
rectangular, channel-shaped formation having an
intermediate portion 34, an angularly extending
web 35 along one edge of the portion 34, and an 45
angularly extending web 36 along the opposite
edge of the portion 34,, and the web 35 has an
out-turned marginal ?ange 3'1 adapted to be
clamped between the clamping surfaces provided
by the bearing portion 3| of the ‘clamping mem 50
ber 30 and the surface 33 of the adjacent flange
I6, while the web 36 has an out-turned marginal
?ange 38 adapted to be clamped between the
bearing portion 32 and the outer surface 33 of the
adjacent ?ange I6.

Installation of the face-work structure is pref
erably effected by ?rst securing a plurality of the
members I 3 vertically and in spaced relation
along the supporting wall I I, through the medium
of the anchoring members I9, the members [3
being spaced apart a distance corresponding to
the width of the panels it is desired to use. The
clamping means, each comprising the connect
ing member 25, actuating screw 28, and clamping
10 member 30, are each assembled with respect to
the members l3, this being effected by inserting
the connecting member 25 through the slots 26.
The marginal ?anges 31 and 38 of adjacent panels
are then inserted between the clamping members
15 30 and adjacent faces 33 of the ?anges l6, and the
actuating screws 28 tightened. After all of the
clamping members 30 have been adjusted, the
space between the webs 35 and 36 of the secured
panels It] may be ?lled with a suitable ?lling ma
20 terial, indicated at 39, the heads of the actuating
screws 28 and anchoring members l9 providing
key means for the ?lling material, and in turn
being held thereby against accidental loosening.
Although the securing members I3 are shown and
25 described as secured vertically along the support
ing wall I I, it will be understood that these mem
bers may be disposed horizontally, and the panels
l0 secured thereto, or, if desired, the securing‘
members I3 may be arranged both vertically
30 and horizontally to present rectangular forma
tions to which all four edges of the panels l0 may
be secured, the panels I0, in this latter case, of
course, having all four edges formed as hereto
fore described to cooperate with the securing
35 means.
Referring to Figures 5 and 6, a somewhat dif
ferent embodiment of the invention is disclosed,
comprising elongated securing members 40 simi
lar to the members 13, each having a channel
40 shaped body, with an intermediate portion 4|,
and spaced overhanging ?anges 42, the interme
diate portion 4| being secured at intervals to
the supporting wall 43 by anchoring members
(not shown) identical to the anchoring members
45 99 heretofore described. A plurality of clamping
means are provided for cooperation with the
members 40, each of these clamping means com
prising a connecting member 44, actuating screw
45, and aclamping member 46, these parts being
50 identical in construction and operation to the
that I have accomplished at least the principal
objects of my invention, and it also will be ap
parent to those skilled in the art that the em
bodiments herein described may be variously
changed and modi?ed, without departing from
the spirit of the invention, and that the inven
tion is capable of uses and has advantages not 10
herein speci?cally described; hence it will be
appreciated that the herein disclosed embodi
ments are illustrative only, and that my inven
tion is not limited thereto.
I claim:
1. A building structure of the character de
scribed, comprising: a support; a facing mem
marginal angular webs, and overhanging ?anges 20

section, and having an intermediate portion,
marginal angular webs, and overhanging ?anges 40
on said webs, against which said facing mem
bers are adapted to bear, said securing means
having its intermediate portion ?xed to said
support; and holding means having a holding
portion operatively engaging beneath the over 45
hanging ?anges of said securing means, and hav
ing an actuating screw extending outwardly be
tween said overhanging ?anges and outwardly
of said securing means and carrying a clamping
member engageable within the slots of said angu
parts 25, 28 and 30 heretofore described, except
lar portions of said facing members to hold the
same in position with respect to said support.
3. A building structure of the character de
scribed, comprising: a support; a facing mem
from the panels ID are employed in this em
bodiment, each having an intermediate portion
48, angular webs 49 and 50, and each of the webs
49 and 50 having an inwardly turned ?ange 5!
60 adapted to rest upon the outer surfaces of the
