Weller, Milwaukee, Wis. 1 Application July 14, 1944, Serial No. 544,871 2 Claims. (01. 98-96) The present invention relates to new and use ful improvements in storm windows and has for its primary object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of this character comprising a ventilator of a unique construction and arrangement which will prevent drafts while at the same time excluding rain, snow, etc. Another very important object of the inven tion is to provide a storm window or sash of the aforementioned character which embodies novel , means for retaining the ventilator in open po sition. Other objects of the invention are to provide a storm window of the character described which will be comparatively simple in construction, strong, durable, compact, light in weight, attrac tive in appearance and which may be manufac tured at low cost. All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become ap parent from a study of the following speci?ca 2 position in the frame I. Knobs I4 are mounted on the upper portion of the frame 5 to facilitate opening and closing the ventilator 4. A sealing strip I5 is provided on the lower edge of the glass 3 for engagement by the upper end portion of the ventilator 4. In use, the latch I3 releasably secures the ven tilator 4 in closed position in the frame I. The side members of the frames I and 5 are of the cross sectional shape shown to advantage in Fig ures 3 and 4 of the drawing. This interlocking construction provides substantially weather-proof joints between the ventilator ‘4 and the frame I. The ventilator 4 may be readily swung to open position by grasping the knobs or handles I4. The ‘pins II, engaged in the elongated sockets I2, positively limit the swinging movement of the ventilator 4 and support said ventilator in open position at the desired inclination. It is believed that the many advantages of a storm window constructed in accordance with the tion, taken in connection with the accompanying present invention will be readily understood and drawing wherein like characters of reference des although a preferred embodiment of the device ignate corresponding parts throughout the several is as illustrated and described, it is to be under views, and wherein: 25 stood that changes in the details of construction Figure 1 is a view in front elevation of a storm may be resorted to which will fall within the window constructed in accordance with the pres scope of the invention as claimed. ent invention.
