|20110107695||Window and door assembly structures - A nosing and drip cap are mounted to each other by elements of the nosing and drip cap. A hook receptacle and/or a stud receptacle extend the length of the nosing. A cooperating hook and/or stud extend from the drip cap. The drip cap is secured to the nosing by engaging the hook in the hook receptacle and/or the stud in the stud receptacle, in a loose engagement combination. While nosing and drip cap are engaged, the assembly can be secured together by (i) installing fasteners spaced along the length of the assembly or, where hook and hook receptacle are used, (ii) bending the assembly into an arcuate configuration, with the inner flange of the nosing to the inside of the bend. While being bent, the hook and hook receptacle create a tightened locking-type engagement between themselves. Either way, the nosing and the drip cap are substantially permanently locked together.||05-12-2011|
|20110107694||Window and door assembly structures - Interfaces between nosings on respective frames and frame combinations to be joined. Each nosing has an elongate receptacle extending along the nosing length. A remote wall of the receptacle is displaced from the remainder of the nosing. The remote wall on the nosings to be joined can be generally aligned with and proximate the receptacle opening on the other nosing. With the remote walls and respective receptacles aligned, the frames are moved toward each other with the remote walls on the respective nosings entering the receptacles, with the remote walls in generally facing relationship with each other. Spacings and tolerances of the remote walls, and corresponding receptacles, can optionally provide frictionally-restrained engagements of the remote walls in the receptacles, whereby the frames can be re-oriented with limited assembly support to such assembly without disengagement of the nosings from each other by the action of gravity.||05-12-2011|
|20090211183||Strengthened extruded aluminum door frame structures - A door frame employs jambs or jamb assemblies which are essentially devoid of materials which are susceptible of being damaged by the affects of weather. Side jambs, optionally supplemented by inserts, extend from an underlying floor/substrate to the header, and can be fabricated from e.g. common-profile extruded aluminum moldings. The inner panel of such molding, which faces across the doorway opening, can be reinforced, from a relatively lesser thickness portion thereof, by a relatively greater thickness portion of such inner panel. The jambs can have rear cavities which receive inserts which can receive nails and/or screws. The inserts can be held in the cavities by protuberances and cooperating recesses which collectively balance front-to-rear loading forces. The rear cavity and the insert are configured such that loads interacting between the cavity side panels and the insert are generally balanced, front-to-rear, by protuberances and recesses on the respective side panels and insert.||08-27-2009|
|20090000224||Pultruded door frame - A fiber-reinforced pultruded polymeric door frame has side and header jamb assemblies which are essentially devoid of wood and other materials which are susceptible to being damaged by the affects of weather. Such jamb assembly generally includes a pultruded jamb which has a rearwardly- and/or downwardly opening cavity. Inserts are received in the jamb cavities and extend downwardly and/or rearwardly from the pultruded jambs. The inserts can receive nails or screws, whereby the door frame can be mounted to building framing members at the doorway rough opening.||01-01-2009|
