DISTANCE RINGS FOR GTS

Limit the Movement of your Supports

Distance Rings are needed to limit the movement of the Supports on the shaft of the GTS to a predefined field. This is used, for example, to define the minimum distance from the support beam to the tree or to prevent the Dynamic Support from slipping outwards unintentionally. The Rings are simply pushed onto the shaft of the Screw.

Treehouse Screw GTS + Support + Distance Rings

A tree screw fastening always consists of the three components GTS + Support + Distance Rings. One to two sets of Distance Rings are usually mounted per Tree Screw. How these are best mounted under different conditions is described in detail in our Assembly Instructions.

Fully equipped

How many Distance Rings?
The shaft length of the GTS and the width of the Support determine how many Distance Rings fit on one Screw:

Bird's eye view

Does every GTS have to be fully equipped?
No, not every GTS needs the full number of Distance Rings. On the one hand, the Support is often only pressed in the direction of the tree (e.g. the lower GTS of triangular constructions), so that the distance only needs to be set on the inside. On the other hand, all GTS Screws and Supports are rigidly connected by the platform, so that it is often sufficient to fit one of two opposing GTS.

You can find more details from a bird’s eye view in our Assembly Instructions.

Reinforcing the GTS

More space wanted
The distance from tree to beam is limited (especially in softwood), as otherwise the leverage forces on the Tree Screws become too great. If you still want to mount your beam far out, you can reinforce your GTS with a Strut GTS + or a Cable Suspension Set.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I do not use Distance Rings at all?

Without Distance Rings, the individual Supports and thus the entire platform construction can slip and remain permanently stuck in this position.

For example, you have placed your platform perfectly in the centre of the Screws during assembly (without Distance Rings!), then a storm comes, the trees sway, and in the end your platform lies completely against the tree on one side, while it lies dangerously far out on the shaft of the GTS on the other side. That should not happen!

At what distance do I position my Static Support?

A normal tree grows around the Tree Screws by 2-8 mm (0,1 – 0,3 in) per year under normal conditions. The load-bearing capacity of our GTS Screws has been tested at a distance of 10 cm (support centre and support beam centre).

For Static Support, we recommend a distance of 10 to 15 cm (4 – 6 in) between the tree and the centre of the support under normal load. This allows the tree to grow undisturbed around the wound and form stable reaction wood before it eventually grows to the support beam.

The higher the load and the softer the wood, the closer the beam must be to the tree! With an oak and normal load, the beam can be e.g. 15 cm away. With the same load in a spruce, however, it would be better to choose a distance of 7 cm.

At what distance from the tree do I position my Dynamic Supports?

With Dynamic Supports, we recommend an average distance of 10 cm (4 in) from the centre of the support under normal load. To the outside, I would limit the movement space with Distance Rings so that the lever arm cannot become larger than 15 cm (6 in)! The Distance Rings can be removed when the GTS is well ingrown. Towards the inside, 1 to 2 sets of Distance Rings are sufficient so that the support beam does not rub against the tree.

This allows the tree to grow undisturbed around the wound and form stable reaction wood before contact with the support beam occurs at some point.

The greater the load and the softer the wood, the closer the beam must be to the tree! With an oak and normal load, for example, the beam can have a maximum of 15 cm free space to move. With the same load in a spruce, however, one would rather choose a maximum distance of 7 cm.

When is the best time to put the Distance Rings on?

It is advantageous to slide the Distance Rings together with the Support onto the shaft of the GTS before mounting the support beams. Subsequent assembly and disassembly of the Distance Rings is inconvenient when the support beams are already mounted.

FAQ

Hi treehouse friends!

We will be happy to help you! Please check our FAQ section first – there, we have already answered the most common questions for you.

In order to be able to advise you optimally, we need:

  • Sketches (drawn by hand is OK)
  • Position and height of the platform
  • Position and size of the treehouse
  • Photos of the trees
  • Tree diameter ø at the height of the platform
  • Tree species
  • Distance between trees (if more than one)
  • Use of the treehouse (many people, public, …)
  • Particularly stormy or snowy region?

 

“Since I often hang in trees or work with loud machines, it’s best to contact me via email. The more concrete your idea and the more detailed the description, the better I can help you – thank you!”
