3 Claims. (01. 160-—44)
This present invention relates to a window
screen drain which affords the rain or moisture
forced through the screen an outlet to the ex
terior of the building and protects the wallpaper
and floor under the window sills.
The main purpose of this invention is the con
struction of a window screen drain which is of

portion of the upper surface of the upper ledge
board 4. This surface declines outwardly to fa
cilitate the outward flow of rain.
Above the board 1 described is the window sill

simple design and necessitates but few changes in

disposed board 1. The vertical portions of the

in which the window sash 9 ‘containing the glass
swell almost watertight during a heavy rainfall.
The bottom piece of a wood screen has no open
ings and its upper edge is considerably higher
than the window sill with the result that the
water collects in the space above the ledge and
between the sill and screen during a heavy rain
and drains over the sill into the house.
With these objects and others in view, as will
become apparent in the course of the ‘description,
the invention resides in the novelty of features,
combination and arrangement of parts which will
be hereinafter more fully described and partic
ularly pointed out in the appended claims.
The preferred embodiment of my invention is
illustrated in the accompanying drawing, form
ing part of this application, in which:

A screen sash ll, preferably of- wood or other
suitable material, has dimensions similar to
those of the glass sash to ?t into the outer por
tion of the casing and is seated with the lower
end portion on the shoulder 5 described. The
bottom bar I 2 of the screen sash is provided with
a relatively narrow horizontally extending slot

portion of the upper ledge board. This slot is
widened at the inner end to form a shoulder M
