STRUT SUPPORT GTS

A new Dimension

The Strut Support GTS opens up whole new worlds in treehouse construction! The ring is simply plugged onto the shaft of our large GTS, so that the GTS Allstar can take up to 4 struts – so you can adapt your support structure to even the most crooked tree and the wildest treehouse!

All good things come in 4!

With our second, completely revised version of the Strut Support GTS, life in the treehouse becomes easier. The application possibilities are limitless: whether as a single additional strut in combination with a GTS Friend, as a 3D extension of a classic triangle with Diamond Bracket or as an asymmetrically fanned 4-pack on the GTS Allstar.

Strut Support GTS - Wood Connector for German Treehouse Screws

Secure and stable

For heavy loads
The new 4 cm ring and the more solid shaft ø 28 mm make the Strut Support GTS a reliable support for heavily loaded struts! One Strut Support GTS can take up to 2000 kg (4400 lbs) compressive load, but make sure that the strut and the GTS in the tree are also designed for this.

Adjustable Plate

Firmly Clamped
The solution with the height-adjustable plate has three advantages: 1. you save yourself complicated angle cuts and can easily adjust the length. 2. you space your support beam so that the tree has enough room to wrap around the thin steel strut while your cutting surface remains dry. 3. you can clamp the strut tightly and adjust it if your platform sinks.

3D Platform

Great relief
Our team at Baumbaron swears by the advantages of the Strut Support GTS: as a supplement to simple 2D triangles or as a flexible solution to bypass thick branches on the construction site. For high loads or soft trees, you can simply reinforce your GTS with a Strut GTS + from below.

Assembly
  1. Cut the wooden strut to the desired length: 90° at the bottom; angle at the top to fit the platform (or alternatively Strut Support Platform at the top).
  2. Pre-drill the bottom centre of the end grain with the Auger-Bit ø 24 mm (250 mm deep = 10 in) and sink the strut with the plate completely into it.
  3. Fit everything together and connect it firmly to the platform.
  4. Turn the plate upwards … as soon as the strut is firmly clamped, screw the plate in place with ø 6 × 100 mm stainless steel wood screws.

Note:

  • The strut / GTS may sag a little during the first load – it is best to screw the plate and strut together only after the platform is finally loaded.
  • The strut may only be loaded under pressure.
  • The upper connection between strut and platform must be bombproof (angle plates!).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I screw additional beams to the main strut?

From a static point of view, pure compression struts must not be subjected to additional lateral loads, as they could otherwise buckle or the connections could buckle laterally. If branching beams should nevertheless be attached to the main strut, it is best to arrange them symmetrically so that their effect balances each other out.

How thick must the wooden beam be?

Since it is purely an axial compression load, the cross-section of the squared timber can be square or round. The plate measures ø 90 mm, so your beam should be at least 9 cm thick (3,6 in). The higher the load and the longer the strut, the thicker the beam must be. For a maximum length of 3 m (120 in), the beam should be a maximum of 12 cm thick (4,7 in).

Can I build thin steel struts instead of wood?

Of course it is possible – the solution is easy to implement and visually very appealing. The plate of the M24 nut is removed. Slide a steel tube with an inner diameter øi 25-28 mm (0,98 – 0,31 in) over the fine thread M24 and clamp the steel tube firmly between the boom and the platform with the nut. It is best to use the Strut Support Platform as a counterpart.

A PDF on the use of steel tube struts can be found here.

Can I use the brace on moving platforms in multiple trees?

The rigid strut must not be moved excessively, otherwise either the connection to the platform or the GTS in the tree may loosen. Therefore, it is better not to use the struts on the tree where the Dynamic Supports are located or where a lot of movement is expected. If you have no other choice, it is best to use the Strut Support Platform as a connection to the platform, so that your strut remains flexible and has maximum freedom of movement.

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!”
