An anchor-board construction system suitable for incorporation into the interior of buildings and homes is disclosed for use as a cladding to replace conventional plaster based wall board similar to that known in the trade as GYPROCK, having one surface thereof incorporating a layer of protruding attachment hooks. These hooks can accept and retain decorative and functional surface finish units embodying a looped or other suitably 'piled' posterior surface portion, for attachment to the hooks. For use, within a building as a wall system, the novel anchor boards are secured into position as an underlying wall layer, and a selected form of area finish embodying a complementary attachment surface is secured thereto simply by pressing into place. The area finish can be carpet tiles, wallpaper or fabric with looped backing or wood paneling. The system includes provision for trims, baseboards, cornice moldings, door moldings and outlet covers together with electrical conduit and permits rapid erection, replacement and change-over, with low associated labor costs. The system may further include a double sided anchor board, having an attachment hook strata on the obverse face as above described and an attachment loop strata on the reverse face, for use in cooperation with wall building supporting members. The wall building supporting members, in turn, incorporate an obverse face having a hook strata to which the anchor board is adheringly attached. Such a wall building supporting member as an I-beam may carry a complete partition suspended therefrom, the I-beam having a hook strata on each outer face, to receive a respective anchor board in secured relation therewith.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
