parts of my door are of low cost and are highly
serviceable and strong and are especially so
wherein an incinerator door is subject to con
stant heating and cooling, as does take place in
this class-of an incinerator. ‘
What I claim is:
1. In an incinerator of the class described hav
ing. a rectangular door opening, the top of this
opening being spanned by a cross bar, said bar
having an inwardly and downwardly extending
?ange across the top of the door, the said opening
spanned by a threshold bar at the bottom thereof,
plates detachably fixed to the interior sides of
the said front face plate thereby forming a chute
for directing materials to the interior of the in
cinerator, the said triangular plates having
hooked shaped projections on their edges contact
ing the sides of the said front face plate, aper
tures in the sides of the said front face plate into
which apertures the said hooked shaped projec
tions are locked and thereby held to the said
front face plate, upwardly extending projections
on the top inner corners of the said triangularly
shaped side plates whereby said projections con
tact the inner side of the top cross bar of the
door opening.
