Product Code: SH191030

£2,200 ex. VAT

Made from pressure treated timber this shelter is part of our Real Value Range. Supplied ready for self assembly.

Lots of children have an instinctive love of being aloft or elevated, this originates from the thrill of learning to move and walk as a toddler and the excitement of being able to clamber onto something to feel taller and see things not visible from a lower level.

Our popular Treehouse Shelter,  recognises this instinctive drive and balances it with optimum safety by ensuring a critical fall height of 0.6m and allowing the tree house shelter to be safely installed onto either grass or tarmac without the need for a soft fall surface.

A further advantage of a tree house shelter is of course that by installing a raised shelter, you can utilise a sloping or “rough” ground area of the playground that might otherwise lie neglected.

Access to the shelter is via a staircase.

The rear wall of the shelter has 4 octagonal windows with seating included beneath the windows. There is also one rectangular window at the end of each shelter.  The provision of windows ensure that the shelter provides protection from the elements but doesn’t compromise on the provision of light or interesting look out points.

    Walls
    Shelters - Real Value
    • We ensure that all of the external walls of our shelters are built to with stand all weather conditions.
    • The framework is built using a good quality, 38mm x 50mm profile pressure treated timber planed and sanded with swept edges.
    • The framework is fixed together using zinc yellow screws.
    • 12mm pressure treated cladding is fitted to the outside of the framework, this is glued as well as pinned with 38mm galvanised pins.
    • If the top edge is exposed an edge trim is fitted.
    Windows
    Non opening glazed
    • The windows are built as separate units; once they have been sanded and treated they are glazed with 2mm polycarbonate sheet.  They are then fitted and sealed using clear silicon into the wall.
    • The polycarbonate used is completely clear and will not fade or become brittle with time; it is 200 times the strength of glass making it virtually shatter proof.
