WITNESS ATTORNEYS Patented Aug. 16, 1938 _ -' UNITED STATES vPATENT OFFICE 2,127,062 ‘FOLDING METAL AWNING Joshua Thomas Kitching, Pleasantville, N. J. Application June 26, 1936, Serial No. 87,520 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 view showing the awning collapsed and adapted cured to the shaft within the gear box I! and to a building. meshes with a worm H.

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: 35 substantially u-shape and said sections being Pivot?lly connected, as Shown at 4- One Of the end sections has formed at its free edge a trough ! for the purpose of catching water drained from’ the awning when extended to direct the water A metallic awning comprising a plurality of 35 telescopic sections of inverted U-shape, the inner section having its outer edge bent to form a gut ter extending the full length thereof and the up per edge of said inner section being bent in the 40 towards the face or wall of a building to which form of an outwardly extending bead, and the 40 > the awning is adapted. The collapsed awning or sections thereof slide one within the other and to bring about collapsing all sections excent one Of the 8nd Sections has beading 8 so 48 that as the sections progressively move inward-ly of each other said sections contact the beadings and bring about a complete collapsing of the awning. All sections except one of the end sections have headings ‘I and 8 which headings con50 mt during the unfolding of the awning to pre- vent complete separation of the sections. A housing 8 of the general shape of the sec- remaining overlying sections having inwardly extending beads on their lower edges and 011i wardly extending beads on their upper edges, inner and outer beads of successive sections en gaging to maintain the sections in cooperative 45 engagement when in extended position, said Over lying sections also having inwardly extending beads formed on their upper edges providing stops against which the upper edges of adia cent sections engage when the sections are in 50 collapsed position, and means for extending and collapsing the sections. tions of the awning is suitably secured to a build- ing and has a compartment ll opening out- _ .
