THE HOME BEAUTIFUL 



B 



ACK in the old days when chivalry ran rarnpant, 
and life was cheap, a man surrounded himself 
with turrets, battlements, bridges, and moats, 
and made the windows as small as possible, for pro- 
tection. Today the homebmlder surrounds himself 
with things of beauty rather than those of strength, 
such as beautiful lawn, hedges, artistic fences, in- 
viting porches and gardens, and builds as many and 
as large windows in his house as he consistently 
can without sacrificing all privacy. For he no 
longer fears the raids of marauding bands but the 
caustic criticism of his friends and' neighbors. To 
him his house is still a castle, but a peaceful one. 

Where the medieval home was mysterious and 
repelling, the modern home is frank and appealing. 
Open spaces, such as windows and porches, have done 
this. Our complete espousal of the fresh-air doctrine 
has caused some radical changes in building ideas. 

That is why the sun parlor and sleeping porch 
are today fundamentals of a home. They supply 
in large measure the air and sunshine which make 
the home a real place in which to live. They are 
the reasons for the beauty and appealing charm of 
the delightful home pictured on the front cover. For 
here the distinctive feature of the whole house is 
the "sunshine" parlor built at one end of the house 
under a pergola roof. This porch has been skill- 
fully encased in walls of glass, which are really sets 
of folding and sliding sash fastened together in 
groups of five and two with a split mullion, part 
moving each way. These windows are equipped 
with "AiR-Way" fixtures. 

"AiR-Way" multifold window hardware can be 
applied to any number of sash the builder may 
wish to place in a row. The height of the window 
does not affect the operation of this hardware, but 
the hardware is designed for sash not more than 
12 square feet in area and maximum width of sash 
not to exceed 24 inches. "AiR-Way" multifold 
window hardware makes possible all of the features 
desirable in window construction of the sun parlor, 
sleeping porch and bungalow. It affords perfect 
ventilation and light — closes weathertight and keeps 
out wind and storm. They can be pushed back 




A cheery sun parlor in winter, equipped with "AiR-Way" fixtures. Windowa tight, 
glass area great, effect luxurious 



close against the porch pillars, opening the en- 
tire porch, or can be closed in cold and inclement 
weather. In the warm months screens can be 
placed outside of these sash without interfering with 
their operation. 

The house itself is an excellent example of the 
familiar square type hip-roof two-story hoine, 
always an economical house to build because of its 
simplicity in design, yet inheriting a real charm and 
warmth from its colonial antecedents. 

The exterior is stucco on hollow tile. If the latter 
is not desired it can be applied over wood or metal 
lath. The front entrance, located at one end of the 
main elevation, is distinctly colonial in character. 
Inside the front door is a small vestibule with side 
clothes closets. An open doorway to the right leads 
into a large and spacious living room well worthy 
of its name, for it occupies about 450 square feet of 
space and represents the maximum of comfort. In 
the wall facing the side porch is a large open brick . 
fireplace "blest with that charm, the certainty to 
please," and on each side of this fireplace are doors 
of the vanishing French type opening out to the 
sun parlor, which has already been described. This 
is a very convenient type of door, sliding on special 
"R-W" vanishing door hardware. These doors 
slide into pockets in the wall on each side of the 
doorway. Triple windows on the other side of the 
living room supplement the excellent light afforded i 
from the sun parlor, and make the room one of 
cheer and warmth. Opposite the sun parlor and 
opening into the living room by the same kind of 
sliding vanishing doors is the dining room, a room 
of appropriate size. 13 by 16 feet. It is connected 
with the kitchen by a swinging door. The kitchen 
is ideally located with regard to the service of meals 
and completely equipped. At one side is a small 
pantry fitted with a disappearing door of "R-W 
hardware, thus eliminating any inconvenience from 
swinging doors in the small kitchen. 

On the second floor the sleeping rooms have been 
segregated. They consist of four bedrooms and a 
sleeping porch located in the wing above the kitchen.- 
The bedrooms are very generous in size, being 1 2 
by 10, 15 by 14, and two 14 by 10 
feet. Each bedroom has windows on 
two sides, and the sleeping porch 
equipped with the same type of slid- 
ing and folding casement window as 
the sun parlor. "R-W" disappearing 
and sliding doors are installed in 
the closets. 

There is an attractive garage in 
the rear of the house. It is stucco 
and harmonizes in architectural lines 
with the house, making a very satis- 
factory building group. The garage 
is large enough to hold two cars and 
is equipped with sliding and folding 
doors hung on Richards-Wilcox 
"Slidetite" garage door hardware. 
This is a combination door made up 
of several panels which fold up and 
slide toward both walls, very much 
in the same fashion as the windows 
in use on the sun parlor of the house.

Vanishing Doors in the Modern Home 

There is not a flat, apartment or house of any pretentiousness anywhere that would 
not be made more modernly convenient by the installation of vanishing doors 



POSSIBLY the general inclination to overlook the advantages to be gained from 
vanishing doors in the modern home has developed from impressions gained in 
early childhood of the sliding doors that often times required the united efforts 
of a strong family to make them operate. 




Modem Vanishing French Doors Hung on Adjustable Ball-Bearingr Hangers, Disappear 

Silently Into the Walls. 



That forerunner of the past half century of door hanger development is far removed 
from the present day silently vanishing door which disappears into the wall on ad- 
justable ball-bearing hangers and woodlined track. 

The above installation, for instance, shows a "French" door hung on R-W sliding 
door hangers. The utility and ornamental possibilities of having this door vanish 
into the wall instead of swinging into the room are obvious. The doors interfere in 
no way with draperies, furniture, and fixtures of the home.

Plan showing the possibility of 
improvements to he gained 
by the substitution of sliding 
doors for swinging closet 
doors. 



In planning homes where it is desired to finish adjacent 
rooms in different effects, the shding door obviates the em- 
barrassment to harmony caused by opening a door of conflict- 
ing finish into an otherwise pleasing environment. For in- 
stance, the mahogany door of a white trimmed dining room 
could not swing into a cyi^ress trimmed room adjacent with- 
out embarrassment, while a sliding door between the two 
rooms could be finished on either side to suit the respective 
trims of the adjacent rooms and would never conflict with 
either one. 

The plans above show two swinging doors opening toward 
each other, which could palpably be improved by the installa- 
tion of sliding doors, as illustrated. The occupants of thou- 
sands of apartments, particularly in our large cities where 
space is at a premium, have found it necessary to substitute 
hanging drapes in cases like this where closet doors interfere 
with access to the closet. 

The perplexity of conveniently closing the pantry doorway without interfering with 
the ice box, the sink, the gas stove, the radiator, is easily removed by the installation 
of a sliding door as shown below. 




The use of vanishing doors is now becoming 
more general than ever before. Space is one of 
the most desired features in the bungalow, apart- 
ment or house and architects are taking advant- 
age of the space saving features which vanishing 
doors permit and are specifying them in their 
plans. Confer with your architect on this point 
before you make a decision.

How To Adjust Vanishing Doors 
If The Building Settles

Fig. A. Elevation of Doorway Structure Showing Track Installed, and (Dotted g

Fig. B. Close View Showing Slotted Plate and Adjusting Screw. 



Frequently houses settle after vanishing doors are installed. As a result the doors stick at the 
bottom and the track becomes out of alignment with the threshold. 

That's the point where the accessible adjustment provided in R-W door hangers of the header 
type is appreciated. 

Usually the proper adjustment of the door can be made by turning with a screw driver the ac- 
cessible adjusting screw of the hanger at one or both edges of the sliding door (Fig. C). 

Further adjustment may be secured by raising or lowering 
the track. This can be easily done by inserting a screw 
driver in the opening between the soffits through which 
the hanger pendant travels, and turning the accessible 
adjusting screws which suspend the track directly over the 
doorway opening (Fig. C). 

Very rarely it is found necessary to raise or lower the end 
of the track located back in the wall pocket. If it is necessary, 
the R-W House Door Hanger arrangement makes provision 
for the adjustment. 

By moving the detachable parts of the sofRts and jambs 
and unscrewing the hanger adjusting screws so that the 
hanger comes apart, the door may be lifted out and the track 
removed without difficulty. To remove the track it is only 
necessary to unscrew from the header the adjusting screws in 
the track over the opening (Fig. C), pull the track forward to 
disengage it from the slotted plate at the back end (Figs. A 
and B), and then withdraw it entirely from the pocket. 

The adjusting screw at the back of the track (Fig. B) may 
then be regulated as required; the track again inserted into 
the pocket; the head of the adjusting screw at the back end of 
the track slipped into its slot in the header plate; the two 
screws over the opening screwed into the header — and the 
track adjustment is complete.

The Right Idea In Casement Window Hardware 




k cheery sun parlor in winter, equipped with "AiR-Way" Fixtures. 
Windows tight, glass area great, effect luxurious. 

What adds more enjoyment to home life in winter than a finely appointed sun par- 
lor? What gives a brighter, happier out-of-doors effect in the home, either winter 
or summer? Nothing — if the window conditions are right. 

That's the point at which "AiR-Way" fixtures become interesting. 

Multifold AiR-Way Window Hardware makes possible all of the features desirable 
in window construction of the sun parlor, sleeping porch, bungalow— any multiple 
window which occupants of the building desire to open entirely. Affords perfect 
ventilation and light— closes weathertight, keeps out wind and storm. 

Builders of residences, hotels, hospitals, sanitariums, schools, libraries, clubs, 
apartments and flats use this style of windows extensively. 

Makes it convenient to convert in-doors to out-doors and vice versa at a moment's 
notice.

Storm^.Tight 



Plans and details on pages 16-17 
show how casing and sash should be 
constructed. To make the window 
storm-tight the vertical joints between 
sash are rabbetted, top sash closes 
against stop and the storm sill is fitted 
close to bottom of sash with no projec- 
tion to direct the water between sash 
and storm sill. The pressure of water 
striking the bottom of the sash is first 
obstructed by the storm sill which 
breaks up its force. The small amount 
of seepage which may fall through the 
joint between the bottom of the sash 
and the storm sill will run down into 

The storm sill serves as the outside Protection of a tight a^r ^P^^^^^^^^ ^^^ ^^^,

Convenience of Ventilation 

"AiR-Way" Window Hardware gives 
opportunity to thrown open the entire 
window frame ; or one sash at any particu- 
lar point in the string of sash (See Fig. 11) ; 
or any number of sash desired (See Fig. 
10). The Windows may be placed in 
such a position that the wind will not 
blow directly into the room. The windows 
may be constructed with stationary mul- 
lion, or moving split mullion, part of the 
sash moving to the right and part to the 
left; or they may be arranged to move all 
in one direction. When wide open the sash 
fold together at an angle against the casing 
at the edge of the window, leaving prac- 
tically all of the window opening clear of obstruction. 

*'AiR-Way" hardware is apphed to any number of sash the builder may want to 
place in a row, but we recommend that not more than 6 sash be installed to form a 
string sKding one way. Height of the window does not aifect the operation of this 
hardware, but the hardware is designed for sash not more than 12 square feet in 
area and maximum width of sash not to exceed 24 inches. It is advisable to keep each 
opening within the limitation of a span 11 feet in width for windows havmg tran- 
som sash when our standard design of transom bar is used, or 20 feet for wmdows 
having no transom sash and a total vertical sash height of six feet. 

Spans can be kept down to this size conveniently by the use of

mullions. 
La7g-e'r"sash require special construction details. " When transoms are installed 
shades may be fastened to transom sash; without transoms, American (Austrian) 
shading may be attached directly to each sash. . , , , ,, t.- i_ ^ ^xr-i 

Sash and frames must be constructed to detail furnished by the Richards- Wilcox 
Manufacturing Company. . , • 



For Show Window | 

Partitions | 

It is interesting to note in one of our | 

late installations, how attractively | 

"AiR-Way" can be used for Show | 

Windows. The shding and swinging | 

sash produce a pleasing effect, as well | 

as making it very convenient for the | 

window trimmer. The sash may be | 

opened at any point, to enable him to | 

conveniently reach his display or they | 

may be thrown entirely open, when | 

occasion requires a wide opening. |

ONE OF THE MANY 

The letter quoted below is typical of 
many which we have received from satis- 
fied home-owners: 

Milton, Penn'a., 
"I mailed to you today, under separate cover, a 
photograph of my sun room in which I installed 
the hardware which I purchased from you." 

"I want to say to you again that I am certainly 
well pleased with the hardware. I have had ahso- 
lutely no trouble in openingf the "windows and 
everyone who has seen the lay-out say they have 
never seen anything like it. We practically 
lived in the sun room all summer and the combi- 
nations we were able to make for ventilation were 
most unusual." Yours vei-y truly, 

"W. W. Wilson.

MULTIFOLD WINDOW INSTALLATION OF 
FROST HOME AT WEST PALM BEACH 

"We do not believe that there is any- 
body in the United States who appre- 
ciates AiR-Way multifold window hard- 
ware more than our family," says W. E. 
Frost, Secretary and Manager of the East 
Coast Hardware Company, West Palm 
Beach, Fla., in a recent letter. "Our house 
faces east and south, which is the prevail- 
ing direction of the storms in this section, 
and formerly every time there was a 
thunder shower or storm we had a 
drenched porch, as the rain would blow 
three-quarters of the way across it and 
flood the floor. It was impossible to keep 
a varnished floor or any kind of furniture 
in the porch as the weather ruined it. 

Now when it rains we have an enclosed * 
room. And in pleasant weather we have 
an open porch. During the winter months 
in the chilly mornings we have a room that 
is easily heated up with a Perfection Oil 
Heater. 

If you will glance at the interior picture ^ 
with the windows open you will notice " 
that we have divided the sash — this is a 
5' A" X 2' sash. Then, if you will refer to 
the interior picture, windows closed, you 
will notice that we have an overdrape over 
the lace curtains. As this is only a photo- 
graph, you cannot appreciate the beauty 
of the room — the photographer in taking 
this photograph removed some of the fur- 
niture, so as not to have it too crowded. 

"We have yet to have the first person 
'^ come on this porch who has not been 
struck with the arrangement of the win- 
dows. I took an architect out there the 
other day, who declared that in the future 
on all of his open work in Palm Beach he 
will use the AiR-Way fixtures." 




This porch kept warm in winter, cool in summer by "AiR-Way" Fixtures

For Private and Public Garage Doors 

Garage doors equipped with this fixture fold 
and slide inside building, requiring only minimum 
space. Recommended for doors not over three 
feet wide. 

The 3-door "Slidetite" set of hardware makes 
an ideal equipment for the ordinary garage door- 
way, two of the doors folding to one side of the 
opening, the third door being hinged to the jamb 
or to the middle door. When desired, however, 
any number of doors from 4 to 10 in one opening 
can be used. A ten door outfit will take care of 
an opening up to 30 ft. wide. 

Doors hung on Slidetite Hardware fit perfectly 
tight, are weather-proof and cannot sag. The 
R-W "Slidetite" equipment permits the use of 
part or all of the opening and prevents warping of 
doors at the top. Slidetite makes possible the 
use of doors corresponding with the style of archi- 
tecture of the residence with which the garage 
is associated.
