This invention relates to building structures,
and more particularly to face-work building
structures, and has for an object the provision of
new and improved structures of this character.
In the drawing accompanying this speciñca
tion and forming a part of this application, I
have shown, for purposes of illustration, embodi
ments which my invention may assume, and‘in

I8 in its edge, the notches preferably being
formed at regular intervals along the length of
each flange I1, and fairly close together. Adapt
ed for accommodation in selected notches I8, are
anchoring members I9, each comprising a screw 5
bolt 20 having a head bearing against the outer
face of the related flange I'I, and a shank thread
ed into a wedge part 2|. The wedge part 2| is
encased in an expansible sleeve 22, which may
beL of lead, and the wedge part 2| and sleeve 22 10
may be accommodated in a suitable cavity 23
formed in the supporting wall I I. Rotation of
the bolt 20 serves to draw the wedge part 2| in
wardly and to expand the sleeve 22 into anchor
ing engagement With the Wall of the cavity 23. i
As many of the anchoring members I9 may be
employed as are desired or are necessary, and
these may be positioned along the length of the
flanges Il, in any selected notches I8, as seems
most convenient, a preferable arrangement being 20
Shown in the drawing, wherein the anchoring
members I9 are positioned in staggered relation
along opposite ñanges I'I of the member I3.
When all of the anchoring members I9 have been
tightened, the member I3 is fixedly secured to the 25
supporting wall I I with the intermediate portion
I4 thereof spaced outwardly from the wall I I.
The intermediate portion I4 of each of the
members I3 is provided with a plurality of ver
tically spaced, transversely extending, parallel
30
slots 24, one end of each slot opening into a lon

of the slot opening into a similar cut-out 26
formed in the web I6 of the member I3, the slots 35
being formed fairly close together along the
,
As shown in Figures 1 through 5 of the draw
ing, the invention comprises a building structure,
wherein a plurality of facing panels I0 are dis
posed edge to edge and flatwise along the surface
of a supporting wall II, which may be the front
40 wall of a building or the like, and said panels I0
are secured in position along said wall by a plu
rality of sets of securing means, each set being
indicated generally by the reference character I2,
and adapted to be positioned between juxtaposed
45 edges of each pair of panels I0; the >sets I2 are
duplicates in construction and operation and
35
only one of the same Will be described in detail.
Each of the sets I2 comprises an elongated
member I3, preferably of sheet metal, channel
50 shaped in cross-section, having an intermediate
portion I4, angularly extending webs I5 and I6
along opposite edges, and out-turned marginal
flanges I'I adapted to rest against the supporting
wall II. Each of the ilanges |'I has a plurality
55 of laterally extending, outwardly opening notches
length of the intermediate portion I4, and each
being adapted to accommodate one of the fasten
ing means 21, Vit being contemplated that rela
tively few of the fastening means 2l, as compared 40
tothe number of slots 24 provided, will be em
ployed, but each may be accommodated in any
slot 24 convenient` to the location at which it is
desired or convenient to place the fastening
means 2'I.
`
Each fastening means 21 comprises a connect
ing member 2B, Which may be in the form of an
oblong piece of suitable metal, -adapted for end
wise insertion from either side of the member I3
through the cut-outs 25 and` 26, to a position 50
beneath the intermediate portion I4, the con
necting member 28 being Wider than the slots 24,
and having a centrally disposed opening 29
threaded for the reception of the barrel 30 of an
actuating screw 3|, the barrel 39 of the screw 3|,

2,116,535
outwardly of the intermediate portion I4, carry
ing a clamping element 32 against which the
head 33 of the screw 3| is adapted to bear. The
clamping element 32 comprises an oblong metal
lic plate preferably curved longitudinally, and
along each longitudinal edge has formed a lat
erally extending lug 34, the lugs 34 being pro
vided for a purpose presently to appear. ’
Each of the sets of securing means is adapted
10 to secure juxtaposed edges of a pair of the panels
IIJ to the supporting wall II.
formed for cooperation with the securing means,
each of the panels l!) comprising a channel
shaped formation having an intermediate portion
35, angular webs 38 and 3l extending along oppo
site edges of the portion 35, the web 33 having an
inturned marginal flange 3B, and the web 31 hav
ing an inturned marginal ñange 33, both adapted
to rest against the outer surface of the portion I4.
Each of the angular webs 36 and 31 of the ad
joining panels !0, at intervals, is provided with
ilongitudinally extending slots 4U and 4|, adapted
for the reception of the ends of the clamping
members 32, the slots 40 and 4| being suñiciently
long to facilitate engagement of the clamping
members 32 with the slots, and when the securing
screws 3| are taken up, the clamping members
_32 are drawn into clamping engagement with the
_panels I0, the lugs 34 of the clamping members
30 `32 being adapted to abut the adjacent webs of
the panels Il) to prevent turning of the clamping
members when the screws 3| are rotated.
Installation of the face-Work structure is pref
erably eiîected by first securing a plurality of the
members I3 vertically, and in spaced relation,
along the supporting wall II, through the me
dium of the anchoring members IS, the members
I3 being spaced apart a distance corresponding to
the width of the panels it is desired to use. A
,40 -suitable number of the fastening means, (each
including the connecting member 2B, the screw
3 I, threaded into the connecting member 23, and
carrying a clamping member 32) are interen
gaged with the securing member I3 by inserting
the connecting member 28, from either side of
the member I3, through thecut-outs 25 and 26,
and the screw 3| carrying the clamping member
32 at the outer side of the intermediate portion
I4, is pushed along the slot 24 toward a central
position. As many of the fastening means are
employed as desired, and placed in selected slots
24 in the manner referred to, after which the
panels I0 are brought into position, and the ends
of the clamping members 32 inserted inte the
slots 40 and 4| of adjacent panels I0, the curved
formation of each clamping member 32 being
provided to enable the clamping member> 32 to
clear any raised portions bordering the inner
edges of the slots 40 and 4 I, which might be pres
60 ent as a result of slight inaccuracy in forming
the slots 43 andv 4|, and permit the clamping
members 32 to bear directly upon the flanges
38 and 3_9 of the panels Ill, without any tendency
to tip or distort the panels Il).> The screws 3|
65 are then rotated to bring about clamping engage
ment of the clamping members 32 with the panels
Ill. After all of the clamping members 32 have
been adjusted, the space between the webs 36 and
3l of the secured panels I0, may be filled with a
suitable filling material, indicated at 42.
Although the securing members I3 are shown
as secured vertically to the wall |I, it will be
understood that these securing members I3 may
be arranged horizontally, and the panels III se
75 cured thereto, or, if desired, the securing mem
bers I3 may be arranged both vertically and hori
Zontally to present rectangular formations to
which all four edges of the panels II) may be se
cured, the panels I!) in this latter case of course
having all four edges formed as heretofore de
scribed to cooperate with the securing means.
Referring to Figures 6 and 7, a somewhat dif
ferent embodiment of the invention is disclosed,
comprising elongated securing members 43, each
having an intermediate portion 44, webs 45-46, 10
and flanges 41, corresponding to the parts I4, I5,
I5, and I'l, respectively, heretofore described, the
flanges 4l being notched, as at 48 for the recep
tion of anchoring members 49, similar to the an
choring members i9, already described, which fix
the securing member 43 to the wall 55.
In this construction, however, instead of em~
ploying slots like the slots 24, having entrance at
either side of the member I3, each member 43
has only one web, web 46, as shown, provided
with a cut-out 5|, communicating with a trans
versely extending slot 52 which terminates short
of the opposite web 45, a plurality of similar slots
52 being provided along the length of the mem
ber 43 as will be understood.
The slots 52 are -:'
each adapted to accommodate fastening means
including a connecting member 53, having a
threaded opening for the reception of a screw 54
like the screw 3|, the screw 54 carrying a clamp
ing member 55 like the clamping member 32.
Panels 56 formedlike the panels I0 are provided
and secured by the clamping means to the mem
bers I3 in the manner already described; filling
material 5l being employed to ñll the space be- ‘
tween the adjoining panel edges.
It will be apparent to those skilled in the art
that I have accomplished at least the principal
object 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 ,40
changed and modified, without departing from
the spirit of the invention, and that the invention
is capable of uses and has advantages not herein
specifically described; hence it will be appre
ciated that the herein disclosed embodiments are1
illustrative only, and that my invention is not
limited thereto.
