Our classic for all treehouses
The advantage of triangular constructions is their easy scalability: no matter if you only want to build a 1 m wide, tip-proof support for further support beams or a gigantic wooden construction with 3 m long struts for wide cantilevered giant platforms. A triangle always remains stable in the tree, while the two GTS Allstar braces and reinforces each other!
Room to play
The long shaft of the GTS Allstar offers maximum leeway, so you can also mount your triangle in crooked and sloping trees.
You can find out more about the different ways of attaching a tribeam to the tree, the force curve and the dimensioning of the wooden beams on the Supporting Elements page.
Minimum trunk diameter ø > 40 cm (16 in) at the height of the upper Screw, as two massive GTS Allstar are installed. The minimum distance between the bolts should be 1 m (3,3 ft). The length of the upper cross-beam should not exceed 4 m (13 ft).
In the case of very long beams, the risk of buckling and thus the beam cross-section can be minimised by using additional braces. All this can be easily calculated for an symmetric triangle of 45°.
The stable back wall of the 45° Diamond Bracket is perfect for attaching additional struts, so you can also stabilise wide cantilevered platforms.

Wood type for outdoor use: e.g. larch or Douglas fir
Dimensions of the triangular beams:
For the triangular beams, use beams, square or upright, with at least 9 × 9 cm (3,5 in) cross-section for small triangles of 1,5 m (5 ft); for beam lengths around 3 m (10 ft), better 12 × 12 cm (4,7 in).

Frequently Asked Questions
When do I use V-Bracket and when 45° Diamond Bracket?
If you want to build a triangle, whether small or large, you usually use the Diamond Bracket.
In contrast to the V-Bracket, it has a predefined brace angle of 45° and a fixed back wall. This makes it more stable overall and makes it particularly suitable for large 3-D triangles with high loads.
The symmetrical construction and the back wall facilitate the cutting and dimensioning of the timbers.
Can I use other GTS Screws as well?
You can adjust the set at any time: Depending on the load situation, the GTS Allstar, Top or Friend can be installed. The top bolt with the Static Support is usually the larger one because it takes more load. The lower screw also takes a lot of load, but is mainly important for lateral stabilisation.
If the log is ø >35 cm (14 in) at the height of the platform, at least one GTS Allstar should always be used. The long rod of the Allstar gives leeway if the tree is tilted forward or backward.
On which GTS do I put the Distance Rings?
It is usually sufficient to secure the desired position of the Static Support on the upper GTS with Distance Rings. The Bracket on the lower GTS wedges automatically due to the tilting movement.
If some movement is expected with two trees, 1 pair of Distance Rings can be omitted from one of the triangles to allow a little more freedom of movement.
