WEATHER STRIP
Howard A. Smith, New York, N. Y.
Application June 11‘, 1937, Serial No. 147,743
4 Claims.
The invention relates to a weather strip and
more especially to a double weather strip for
double sash windows of the sliding type.
The primary object of the invention is the
5 provision of a weather strip of this character,
wherein it can be installed by unskilled labor and
provides maximum protection from weather and
assures the most e?icient window operation, be
ing economical in initial cost and assures ‘years of
satisfactory service, eliminating all ?tting or
grooving of sash to accommodate the strip and
is susceptible of use on any thicknesses of a
double-hung window without regard to the type
of balancing arrangement for the sashes.
Another object of the invention is the provi
sion of a weather strip of this character, wherein
the same effects a double lock between the sashes
of the double-hung type and the window frame
or casing being readily mounted in place for
20 service against weather elements and is possessed
of durability and also can be manufactured and
installed at a minimum expense.
With these and other objects in view, the in
vention consists in the features of construction,
25 combination and arrangement of parts as will
be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated
in the accompanying drawing, which discloses the
preferred embodiment of the invention and
pointed out in the claims hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawing:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary enlarged transverse
sectional view through a window of the double
sash sliding type showing the‘ weather strip con
structed in accordance with the invention in
35 stalled.
Figure 2 is an end elevation of one of the com
ponent parts of the weather strip, being the
double lock section thereof.
Figure 3 is an end view of another component
40
part.
.
Figure 4 is an end view of still another com
ponent part.
Figure 5 is a fragmentary perspective view
partly in section of the upper sliding sash show
4.5 ing the weather strip ?tted therewith.
Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 5 showing
the lower sash with the weather strip ?tted there
with.
Similar reference characters indicate corre
sponding parts throughout the several views in
the drawing.
Referring to the drawing in detail, A designates
generally a portion of a window casing or frame,
B a portion of the upper sash and C a portion of
55 the lower sash, respectively, these sashes being
(01. 20-69)
of the sliding type and are of conventional kind.
At each vertical side of the window casing or
frame A in substitute for the usual parting strip
or stop (not shown) ?tted therein is a double
lock strip-like guide section formed from a single 3
length of metallic sheet material bent on itself to
provide an intermediate parting web It of sub
stantially U shape in cross section and outer
folded guide cheeks H,‘ these being spaced from
the web It) uniformly and form relatively deep ‘
channels l2 therebetween while the outer fold Q3
of each cheek H following the free edge of the
said fold is outwardly struck or offset at M to
effect resilient clamping portions l5 functioning
as jaws so that when the section creating the 10
Web ID, cheeks H and channels l3 is inserted in
the parting strip groove I0 formed in the vertical
side of the window casing or frame A, the said
section will be frictionally held within the said
groove and such section is coextensive with each
side of the window casing or frame sash opening
therein for the ?tting of said section in the
window casing or frame.
Secured to the meeting stiles ll of the upper
and lower sashes B and C are male and female
spring snap interlocking tongue and groove
strip-like sections l8 and I9, respectively, the
tongue section l8 being formed with a ?ange ex
tension 20 at right angles thereto for corner ?t
ting the stiles ll and adapted to accommodate iii)
fasteners 2! securing the said sections to the stiles
I‘! at the confronting sides thereof of the top and
bottom sashes. The sections 19 have the folded
guard ?anges 22 which are slidably accommo
dated in the channels 12 formed in the guide :4
sections ?tting each channel or groove 16 in the
vertical side of the window casing or frame A.
Each groove section H3 at opposite ends thereof,
its length being in accordance with the length of
the stiles I‘! of each sash, has capping the same .1 D
terminal boxes 23, each formed with an attaching
tongue 24 accommodating a fastener 25 driven
into the stile l1 and an interlocking ear 25 inter
?tting and pocketed by the ends of the tongue
section [8. In this manner the sections I 8 and
19 are made fast to and carried by the stiles ll
of the upper and lower sashes B and C, respec
tively, the meeting cross rails 21 of the said sashes
being cut away at 28 for the insetting of the ter
minal boxes 23 upon said sashes.
The folded ?anges 22 projecting from the stiles
ll of the upper and lower sashes B and C slidably
?t in the channels l2 in the guide sections of the
weather strip and the latter effects a double lock
between the window casing or frame and the said
2

sashes and in this manner the weather strip
tongue and groove male and female guard strip
creates or provides a double weather lock between
sections carried by the sashes and slidably en
the window casing or frame and the sashes, the
gaged with the double grooved guide section, said _
weather strip being simple and is readily and
easily installed by unskilled labor and when in
stalled aifords maximum protection from weather
elements as well as most ef?cient window opera
tion.
.
To attach my invention to a typical form of
window having sliding sashes, the, sashes are
?rst moved from the frame and the "parting web

the parting strip groove IS. The sections l8 are
secured to the sides of the rails I‘! of the upper
female section adapted for independent sliding
movement relative to said guide strip and male
section whereby to permit assembling and disas
sembling of the coacting parts of the combina
tion, terminal boxes attached to the sashes and
inter?tted at and with the ends of the said
guard strip sections for capping the ends there

serted in the channels [2 above the lower sash
and moved downwardly therein for connection
with the sections I8. A reverse operation of the
above described parts permits of ready removal
of one or both of the sashes from the frame for
any desired purpose.
