DYNAMIC SUPPORT

99,00 

Also trees want to dance – You need the “Dynamic Support” if the treehouse is anchored in several trees.

The “Dynamic Support” is pushed onto the shaft of the screw and connected to the carrier beam. Unlike the “Static Support”  the beam can move freely on the shaft – so the trees can sway independently in the wind without damaging the platform construction. One tree is fixed, the others moveable!

Field of application

When do you need a Dynamic Support?

  • A Dynamic Support is only needed if you are building in several trees and they swing in the wind. If all the supports were fixed, the joints would be torn with every gust of wind!

 

When do you not need a Dynamic Support?

  • If all your trees at the attachment point are thicker than ø 60 cm and the platform is relatively close to the ground, the logs there will only move minimally – then you don’t need a slide bearing.
  • With triangular constructions you always need a fixed bearing at the top, with a sliding bearing the construction would tilt sideways.

 

What should be considered?

  • Always use the Dynamic Support in combination with Static Support! The Static Support is installed on the most solid tree, this is the fixed anchor point of your platform.
  • With the Dynamic Support (thin trunk) the platform is then movably mounted – so the trees can swing freely.
  • Make sure that the Dynamic Support cannot slide completely outwards, otherwise the lever arm becomes very large and the screw could be overloaded – use Distance Rings for this!

Installation

Please follow our installation instructions exactly – this is the only way to ensure a permanently secure attachment!

 

Installation:

  1. After you have mounted the GTS (tree bolt), jerk the nut loose.
  2. Slide the Dynamic Support onto the shaft of the GTS.
  3. Position the beam on the Support. The Dynamic Support should have enough room to move in all directions.
  4. To fix the support we recommend 6-8 mm stainless steel screws (small holes), and 10-12 mm lock screws (large holes).
  5. In order to avoid leverage, make sure that the beam cannot slip too far outwards with large loads. Distance Rings or an additional Cable Suspension can help here.
