This class includes flexible all-wire or slat-and-wire fabric,
wire blanks, panels and fabric structures not otherwise classifiable,
and miscellaneous wire fabric joints in which at least one of the
intersecting or connected elements is bent, looped, twisted, or
coiled about the other or is subjected to an analogous wire-working
operation to form or make the fabric or wherein wire is made an
essential element of the invention. Fabrics, joints, or other structures
wherein the elements are joined or secured together, for example,
by tie-wires or ties, without bending or twisting the elements,
or by weaving, welding, casting, nailing, and stapling and wherein
wire is not made an essential element of the invention are excluded.
SECTION II - LINES WITH OTHER CLASSES AND WITHIN THIS CLASS
Note. Wire fabrics to which features or elements have been
added which particularly adapt such fabrics for conveyor use, and which
may be considered as more than an improved fabric structure, are
classifiable with conveyors (see the References to Other Classes
Note. For composite fabrics comprising fabric or web structures
in which a wire fabric is used for reinforcement or protection see
Search Class notes below.
Note. Class 428, Stock Material or Miscellaneous Articles,
subclasses 544+ is the residual locus for patents drawn
to stock materials which are all metal or have adjacent metal components.
As such, it provides for many rod structures analogous to wire
structures and should be considered proper as a supplementary search
Static Structures (e.g., Buildings), appropriate subclasses for residual structural metal work and
subclasses 343 and 660+ for a surface forming fabric
or lattice openwork, e.g., a grating or grille.
subclasses 50+ for a process of making sheet glass and bonding
the formed sheet to glass, subclasses 147+
for glassworking apparatus including means to feed and laminate
wire fabric thereto, and subclass 154 for glass to metal bonding
by glassworking apparatus.
Stock Material or Miscellaneous Articles, appropriate subclasses for a stock material product in
the form of a single or plural layer web or sheet including a wire
fabric as a component, see especially
subclass 38 for a light transmissive mass which has an opaque
frame or border therearound, which may be a wire fabric, (e.g.,
stained glass or wire reinforced glass), and subclass 608 for metallic
stock which includes a layer or component comprising interengaged
fibers. (See (2) Note above).
Endless Belt Power Transmission Systems or Components, particularly
subclasses 237+ for a friction drive belt which may be formed from a
wire fabric or have a wire fabric as a component thereof. (See (2)
This subclass is indented under the class definition. Miscellaneous wire articles not otherwise classifiable,
fabric blanks, panels, or other structural fabric forms adapted
to be used in the manufacture of chairs, lounges, carriages, go-carts,
napkin rings, or other articles, or to be united to similar blanks
for any purpose.
Electrolysis: Processes, Compositions Used Therein,
and Methods of Preparing the Compositions,
subclass 75 , for processes of electroforming foraminous articles
and products resulting from such processes.
Stock Material or Miscellaneous Articles,
subclass 549 for composite stock having a component which contains metal
particles and fiber, cellulose or asbestos, and subclass 596 for
metallic stock which is apertured.
This subclass is indented under subclass 2. Wire fabrics having the elements secured together by bending,
coiling, or twisting and in which the tie-wires or clips are used
for strengthening the joints of the intersecting wires.
This subclass is indented under subclass 2. Fabrics in which the longitudinal or cross wires are bent
to form a series of loop elements, generally arranged in rows, which
hook into, pass through, interlock, or otherwise engage and hold
loops formed in an adjacent row or section.
This subclass is indented under subclass 2. Wire fabrics in which a plurality of similar elements are
united by dissimilar elements or links or in which the cross wires
are composed of sections suitably connected together or to the longitudinal
wires or strands.
This subclass is indented under subclass 2. Miscellaneous fabrics not otherwise classifiable, comprising
slats and wires secured together by the mere bending, coiling or
twisting of the wires about the slats.
