Ventilated Cover

This cover for horizontal surfaces not only permits ventilation of enclosed equipment but also prevents foreign objects from fouling equipment operation.

Cover plate 10 is formed of two sheets 11 and 12 of metal. These have lugs 14 and 15 stamped and bent out of the plane of each sheet. Lugs 14 are bent to extend along an X axis of sheet 11 while lugs 15 extend along a Y axis of sheet
12. The lugs of each plate are butt welded to form a strong sandwichlike structure.

The holes 16 and 17 formed by stamping and bending the lugs are staggered so that there is no straight passage through the cover. A notch 18 in each lug forms a path such as 20 for the flow of air from a hole 16 in sheet 11 through a hole 17 in sheet 12.
