This invention relates to temporary protective
coverings for bath-tubs.
, It is customary at the present time in build
ing construction to install the ?nished bath-tub
?xture as soon as, or very soon after the rough

edges 1, inside and outside ?nished surfaces 8
and‘ 9, covered and protected with a protective
covering ID. The covering ll] comprises a body
portion H, and a marginal portion l2. The 5
marginal portion I2 is permanently secured by

erable time is apt to lapse between the completion means of nails l3, or by other convenient means
of the rough framing and the ?nal ?nishing of to the studs 5 and 6, and to the rough ?oor

been conceived.
An object of the invention is to provide a
protective covering for a bath-tub ?xture,‘ which
may be fastened to the rough framing of a build
ing structure in such a manner as to completely
cover the ?nished surface of the tub, which may
25 remain in place until after the ?nished work of
the building structure has been completed, and
the exposed part of which may then be removed.
Broadly this invention comprises a covering
body in two parts, one part consisting of a main
30 body portion and the second part consisting of
a marginal portion, the two parts being tem
porarily connected in such a manner that they
may be easily and quickly separated one from
the other.
Preferred embodiments of this invention are
illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in
cide with the line of ?nished materials, either
wall or ?oor. After the ?nished work is done,
the body portion ll may be separated from the
marginal portion 12, and thereby permit the re
moval of the body portion II, and exposure of
the ?nished portions or surfaces of the bath
tub I.

In the construction shown in Figure 2 the por
tions H and I2 are'connected and disconnected
by means of a slide fastener construction H. In
this construction operation of the slide l8, either
connects the parts H and I2 together or discon- 30
nects the same, depending upon the direction of
movement of the slide l8. Advantages of this
construction are that the body portion ll of the
protective covering 10 may be repeatedly used,
and only the marginal portion l2 replaced for 5
each installation. A second modi?cation which
has these same advantages is illustrated in Fig
