My invention relates to storm sash assemblies for in

It is, therefore, to be understood that the invention is not
limited to the speci?c construction as illustrated and de
scribed, as the same is only illustrative of the principles
involved which are capable of extended application in
various forms, and the invention comprehends ‘all con
struction within the scope of the appended claims
iWhat I claim is:
1. In combination, a storm sash framing for incorpora~
tion within a casing de?ning an opening in a building;
a storm sash having side members, a top member and a
especially prevalent in instances of relatively long door
bottom member, and being removably secured within said
framing; said framing having exterior and interior side
rails, said exterior rails providing surfaces to support the
side members of said sash, ?rst members connected with
and window sashes.

In order to preclude the aforementioned bellying of the
sashes, I provide each of said sashes with at least a pair
ber and detachably connecting said sash with the ham
ing, second members extending from the sash at opposite
sides thereof adjacent the bottom member and detachably
‘connecting said sash with the framing, and an elongated
the sashes thus permitting a draft into the building from
without. In some instances, the degree of bellying is
such that the panes are often broken. This condition is
of anchoring devices 39 mounted on the sash. Each de
vice comprises a one-piece elongated body or bar as
formed at one end with a right-angularly disposed ?nger 20 bar movably mounted on each of the side members be

2. In combination, a storm sash framing for incorpora

and the spline 21, the latter being suitably ?tted about the
device to permit sliding of the device. In installing each
a storm sash having side members, a top member and a
bottom member, removably secured Within said framing;
of the devices 39 I form the Wall 18, adjacent the device,
with an elongated slot 43 through which the ‘arm 42 op
erates. The slot 43 is formed by a suitable tool, for in

section is turned inwardly to provide a lip or seat 44 for
accommodating the arm 42 and serving to limit the inward
movement of the device by engagement with the offset
portion 45 of the arm as illustrated in FiGURE 2 of the
drawing.
In use, the sashes being equipped with the devices 39
and disposed within the con?nes of their respective side
rails, each device is moved by the ?nger piece 41 towards
the adjacent Wall 31 and into the channel 28 and thus
of the side members of said sash into the framing be
tween the rails to maintain said sash within the ‘framing,
movable projections extending from the lower ends of the
side members spaced from said pivot means, said projec
tions being movable from extended positions in the fram
ing, to maintain the sash in the framing, to retracted posi
tions to permit removal of the sash from the framing,
‘and an elongated bar movably disposed in each of said side
members between said pivot means and said projections
rides over the rib 32. When the devices are thus disposed 40 for movement into engagement with said interior rails
in their extended positions, they serve to anchor the sashes
to the framing and preclude bellying of the sashes be
tween their ends by pressure from without the building.
The devices may be moved to retracted positions to dis
pose the ?ngers 42 out of the channels 28 and thus per
mit the sashes to be removed from the framing in the
ordinary manner.
From the foregoing, it Will be apparent that my inven
tion provides a simple, economical, and e?icient means
for preventing bellying or bulging of window sashes es
to'imaintain said side members ?rmly against said exterior
rai s.
3. In combination, a storm sash framing for incor

a storm sash, having side members, a top member and
a bottom member, removably secured within said fram

exterior rails providing a surface to support the side mem

at opposite ends thereof of said sash into said framing

framing, a pair of said pins being retractable to permit
removal of said sash, an elongated vertical slot in each
to the panels of doors or the like. It is to be noted that
the spline 21 is constructed of a suitable resilient mate~
side member substantially midway thereof, a ?exible
trial and, therefore, serves to maintain the body 40 in
an adjusted position against the pane to prevent movement
by vibration or the like, the spline also serving to engage
the portion 45 to limit the retracting movement of the
body 40. It will also be noted, ‘as clearly disclosed in
FIGURES 2 and 3, that while each of the ?ngerpieces 41
extends outwardly from the pane 12 of a respective sash,
it is relatively short and terminates within the con?nes
of the adjacent spline 21 to preclude engagement with the
the side members and said surface.
4. In combination, a storm sash framing for incor
poration within a casing de?ning an opening in a building
meeting rail of the other sash during raising and lowering
and having lee and weather sides, said framing having

Without further elaboration, the foregoing will so fully
explain the invention that others may, by applying cur
rent knowledge, readily adapt the same for use under
various ‘conditions of service. Moreover, it is not indis
pensable that all the features of the invention be used 70
