20' Rope Bridge Kit
Rope Bridge Kit
Materials and Instructions for Connecting Two Treehouses by Rope Bridge
Usually Ships in 2 to 3 Business Days
This bridge kit is for connecting two wooden platforms that are up to 20' apart.
We offer this kit to help make building your own as easy as possible. A bridge like this is not something that can be pre-assembled and shiped with minimal installation, and many of the parts would be hard and/or expensive for you to acquire in small quantities. However, we have done the hard part of gathering everything you will need in one place (except lumber which you buy locally), and have prepared a set of instructions for you to follow. If you get stuck anywhere, you may contact us for free support.
This bridge kit is intended for connection to sturdy wooden platforms/decks. Please sure up the foundations with bracing if necessary. Ensure that railings on either entrance to the bridge are extra well built. It is a good idea to reinforce joist connections with screws and/or lag bolts in the areas near the bridge connections especially where nails could pullout due to tension forces from the bridge.
Cable: Cable is 3/8" Galvanized aircraft cable. There will be 2 pieces in your kit for running underneath the bridge floor. Hardware is included for attaching the cables to wooden treehouse platforms / decks and also for connecting the bridge floor to the cables.
Rope Handrail: The rope is a 1 1-1/8" Polyester 3 strand rope (tan colored like the netting). There will be two pieces - one for each handrail. Each piece is 8' longer than your bridge length, which gives you 4' to tie a knot onto your railing post (a bowline knot takes about 3' of rope).
Netting: We provide a square hung net that is 12' wide by the length of your bridge - This is enough to wrap under the walking surface and ensure that small children can't slip through anywhere. It is 2" mesh and tan colored (black is available too upon timely request).
Shipping Times: Kits typically ship in 1-4 days.
Instructions and support: You will get a few sheets of paper with instructions, tips, and diagrams. If you have further questions or need more help of any kind, please contact us and I will help you - support for you and/or your builder is included.
