1 Claim. (Cl. 156-43)
This invention relates to folding metallic awnlugs and has for the ‘primary object the provision
of a device of this character which will be extremely simple in construction and easy to adapt
5 to a building and may be either manually actu' ated or power driven and when folded or collapsed
will lie substantially within a casing, the latter
and the awning when folded will not project
any further beyond the face of a building than
10 awnings now employed.
'With these and other objects in view, this invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts
to be hereinafter more fully described and
16 claimed.
For a complete understanding of my invention,
reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which
Figure l is a front elevation illustrating an
20 awning constructed in accordance with my invention and showing the same collapsed.
Figure 2 is a fragmentary transverse sectional
wardly through the front thereof in which the
sections as they fold in telescopic relation may
move to become substantially con?ned within the
compartment. Thus it will be seen that when
the awning is folded or collapsed and within the 5
compartment Ill the device in entirety will not
project any further from the face of the wall
of a building than is customary with awnings
now in use. Gear compartments II are formed
in the casing in which are located drums l2 se- 10
cured to a shaft l3 extending into both com
partments. The drums have secured and wound
thereon ?exible elements I‘ secured to one of
the end sections of the awning adjacent the gut
ters thereof. By rotating the shaft IS in one 15
direction, the awning may be collapsed into the
casing and by rotation of the shaft in an oppo
site direction the awning may be moved into ex
tended position. The shaft I! may be either
manually rotated or by power. A gear box I! ,0
is secured to the casing with the shaft l3 ex
tending therethrough. A worm gear I‘ is se

cured to the shaft within the gear box I! and
to a building.

The worm l‘l may be

Figure 4 is a fragmentary perspective view,
partly in section, showing one of the awning sections.
30 Figure 5 is a detail sectional view showing the
Power drive for the awning.
Referring in detail to the drawings, the numeral l indicates a collapsible metallic awning
composed of a series of telescopic sections 2 of
connected to an electric motor I! suitably mount- 25
ed to the building or may be connected to a
shaft i9 extending to a gear box 20 in which
are located meshing beveled gears 2|, one se
cured to the shaft l9 and the other to a crank
handle 22. The crank handle is located in con- 30
venient reach of a person standing adjacent the
awning so that the latter may be raised and low
ered, as desired.
Having described the invention, I claim:

Pivot?lly connected, as Shown at 4- One Of the
end sections has formed at its free edge a trough

the awning when extended to direct the water

telescopic sections of inverted U-shape, the inner

form of an outwardly extending bead, and the 40 >
