Stretch Attach Isolator

      The problem is isolated mounting of a safety screen onto a fan.

      Described is a simple economical elastic media that
acoustically shock mounts a safety grill onto an electrical fan.

      The attachment media is constructed of an elastic material with
two small through clearance slots, one slot parallel (1) with the
media's edge, the second perpendicular (2) to the first but
nonconnecting (see Figure 1).  The eyelets (3) provided by the safety
screen (4) are passed through the parallel slot (1).  With the slot
(1) edges running parallel with the screen support rod (5), the
eyelet (3) of the safety screen becomes captured.  The media is
stretched and anchored over the adjacent corner of the fan (see
Figure 2).  Passage of the fan corner through the perpendicular
clearance hole (2) acoustically shock mounts the safety screen to the
fan.  The described media is applicable to varying sizes of safety
screens and fans.

      An alternate medical arrangement is illustrated in Figure 3,
with the difference being attachment of the safety screen to the
media is through a snap-through tenon (6).
