Sliding Plate PE-HD

Build Movable Connections

A treehouse between several trees must be movable so that the trees can move freely, and the construction will not be damaged. With the robust PE-HD sliding plate, you minimize friction and decouple wooden beams, Tree Screws and the like – it works with wood-metal as well as wood-wood connections.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my tree house grow upwards with the tree?

Don’t worry, you don’t have to extend your ladder every year. Trees only sprout at their branch tips. The rest of the tree then only grows in width (thickness growth, annual rings). You can easily observe this by looking at the carvings on the trunk, they remain at the same height for the rest of the tree’s life – just like your tree house.

How thick do my wooden beams need to be for the supporting structure?

The following rule of thumb is used to calculate the beam height h:

The beam width b should always be > 6 cm (> 2.4 in) so that you have enough space for screwing. Here you can find a detailed example calculation.

Can I also use screws from the DIY store to build a treehouse?

To fasten a tree house to the tree – No!

  • The screws available in DIY stores are not designed for the extreme loads of a treehouse.
  • Treehouse Screws are made of a special steel alloy, have a large diameter (ø = 40 mm (1.57 in)) and an optimized geometry.
  • The frequent alternating loads due to wind fluctuations are particularly problematic – these can lead to spontaneous fatigue fractures in the long term with normal wood screws.
  • The treehouse construction must have distance to the tree so that it can grow further in width, the distance and the associated leverage forces can only be handled by professional Treehouse Screws!

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:

  • 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!”
