Williams, St. Louis, Mo., assigngn‘ to ' Gaylord Container Corporation, St. Louis, Mo., a corporation of Maryland Application August 2, i937, Serial No. 156,900 2 Claims. My invention relates to containers, particularly to containers made of paper, ñberboard or the (Cl. 229-43) lng ribs d of the body member engaging the cor- \ ners of the collar panels t, a space lll is left be like and having six or more sides. The invention tween the panels 2 of the body member and the has as its principal object a container of this type panels 8 of the collar member. ' 5 which is quite strong and which is adapted to contain a heavy shiftable lading. Other objects The bottom of the container is covered by a closure sheet it having triangular 'tabs i2 de and advantages appear hereinafter. 'I‘he invention consists principally in a con- íined by creases i3 or score lines. These ltri angular tabs i2 extend into the spaces il) between tainer having a collar member at the end of the ' 10 container body, a closure sheet covering the end of the body and having ñaps projecting into the the body panels 2 and the collar panels a. ‘The bottom collar 'l has flaps Ml of segmental shape 10 defined by. creases i5 or score lines. These flaps spaces between the body panels and the panels ld are folded over against the bottom closure of the end closure member, said collar member sheet H. or said body having flaps folded over against the 15 closure sheet and adhesively secured thereto. v l The bottom collar l` and the body member i may be secured together in any suitable way, as 15 The invention further consists in laying out the by staples la. The segmental flaps it of the blanks for the several parts in such a way that a bottom collar may be secured to the bottom maximum number of the creases constituting divisions between parts extend crosswise of‘ the go grain or fiber of the material, thereby increasing the strength of the structure. The invention Closure sheetll as by staples Il, or by stitching. Staples it or stitching may 'lîkcWiSc extend through the body panels .2, the collar panels il 20 and the tabs i2 of the closure sheet il. further consists in the container and in the parts The top» closure member is the same in con and combinations and arrangements of parts struction as the bottom closure member includ hereinafter described and claimed. ing a collar 2d telescoping over the container body`25 In the accompanying drawing, . i and having segmental .naps 2l and a top clo- 25 Fie. 1 is an elevation of a container embodying sure sheet 22 ntting over the top of the body and my invention, the closure member at one end of having triangular tabs 23 extending into the the container beine shown in section, Fig. 2 is a top plan view, 30 Fig. 3 is a sectional view on the line 3-3 in Fíg- 1, the body of the container or keg has been ñlled, Fig. 4' is a side view of the telescope or cap portion of one end closure member, Fig. 5 is a side view 0f one end Closure sheet; 35 and ~ _ Fig. 6 iS a View Similar` t0 Fîg- 1 Of a InOdiñcation. spaces lo between the body panels. 2 and the top collar panels 2d. The top collar 2i] may be se cured to the body i by means of staples 25. After 30 _ \ _ t ‘ The COHtalncr body Í 1S made 0f papel', flbel‘board or other suitable material, preferably of a 40 laminated 0r multi-ply papel“ matefial- The body iS divided íntc panels 2 by means 0f cI‘caScS 3 0r Scores extending longitudinally ofthe body. Preferably these dividing creases 3 are in the tOrIn 0f fairly Wide Channels that are Outstand- the container being particularly intended and adapted for nails, bolts, nuts and other heavy shiftable lading, the top closure sheet 22 is po sitioned with its tabs 23 between the body panels 35 2 and the top collar panels 24, after which the segmental flaps 2i of the collar are folded over against the top closure sheet 22 >and adhesively secured thereto, as shown at 26. The arrangement of the grain or fibers in the 40 material from which the several parts are made is selected so as to obtain the maximum strength, bearing in mind the fact that score or crease lines extending along the grain or fiber lines of 45 lng t0 DI‘Oducc longltlldinal ribs 4 alOng the paper or the like weaken the material much more 45 meeting edges 0f the Outer faces 0f adjacent panels ‘L’~ The body may be made from e nat blank and the overlapping edges 5 of the material secured together by staples 6 or otherwise. 50 The bottom closure member of Figs. 1 to 5 includes a collar 1 having panels 8 corresponding to the panels 2 of the body and fitting over the lower portion of the body I.` The collar 1 is pro- than such score lines extending across the flow of the grain or fiber. In the container body, the grain or fiber iiow is circumferentially of the body as indicated by the lines 30, so that the longitudi nal scoring of the body flange extends crosswise 50 of the grain ñow. In the top collar 20 and the bottom collar l, the important consideration is a strong connection between the segmental flaps vided with Wide creases 9 along the meeting edges 55 of adjacent panels 8. By reason of the outstand- - and the panels. In the collars the grain flow is longitudinally of the body I, as indicated by the 55 2 2,132,666 lines 3l, that is the grain ñow is at right angles to the grain flow of the body member I. This mini mizes the weaking effect of the score lines that define the segmental flaps. In the top and bot tom collars, the longitudinal creases 9 between panels need not be so deep as in the case of the body, so that there is no serious weakening of the top and bottom collars by reason of the longitudinal score lines; 10 The end closure sheets Il and 22 may be made of corrugated paperboard instead of the plain multi-ply paper construction of the other parts. In only two of the triangular tabs of the closure sheets II and 22 do the score lines extend along 15 fiber lines 32, all other scores extending across ñber lines. In the modification shown in Fig. 6, the collars 40 are mounted inside the body, the segmental securing ñaps 4| being provided on the ends oi 20 the body panels 2a. The end closure members 42 are mounted in the ends of the body, with their triangular tabs 43 disposed between the collar panels and the body panels. The segmental flaps 4I are folded over against the end closure mem 25 bers 42 and adhesively secured thereto. The col lars 40 may be secured inside the body in any suit able way, as by an adhesive or by staples 44. The above described‘container construction ob tains the maximum strength from material of 30 the kind described. The parts of the container are easily assembled and the filled container Will withstand very severe handling, even though filled with heavy shiftable lading. Obviously the body may have fewer or more sides than the eight shown in the drawing and numerous changes in the details of construction and proportions of parts may be made without departing from the invention so that I do not 5 wish to be limited to the precise constructio shown. ' What I claim is: 1. A multi-sided container comprising a body member having a multiplicity of longitudinal 10 creases dividing said body into panels, a collar mounted on the end of said body, said collar hav ing panels corresponding to said body panels, and a polygonal closure sheet having tabs projecting from the sides thereof and- inserted between 15 panels of said body memberand said collar, said collar having flaps folded over against said clo sure sheet and substantially covering it. 2. A multi-sided container comprising a body member having a multiplicity of longitudinal 20 creases dividing said body into panels, a collar mounted on the end of said body, said collar having panels corresponding to said body panels, and a polygonal closure sheet having tabs pro jecting from the si es thereof and inserted be 25 tween panels of said body member and said collar, said collar having flaps folded over against said closure sheet and adhesively secured thereto said flaps covering substantially all of said closure sheet. 30 BENJAMIN M.
