Abstract

The invention relates to a hanging tent like construction (Treepee) that can be suspended in a tree or other support. The tent comprises a circular or square base comprising a metal frame with fabric fixed to the frame by a series of double stitched loops through which the metal frame is inserted. The metal frame and fabric floor are connected to four high strength straps which loop around the frame. The straps meet at the top to form a triangular tent frame similar to a teepee. The metal frame is preferably a steel tubular frame and the fabric is preferably a firer retardant, UV, PU and water resistant polyester.

Description

Description:

Title: The Treepee' (trademarked) hanging tent. To be hang from a tree or other suitable support. (see sheet D.) The Treepee comes with either a round or a square trampoline style base (see sheet B.) A fabric, polyester tent is secured with high tensile straps to the metal base frame, the straps are double sewn into the fabric tent and secured to a carabiner at the top for suspension.

(see sheet A, 2.) Common problems encountered when trying to construct/assemble a hand built or pre-manufactured tree house or childrens' play den as well as traditional tents are: 1. That a large space is often required.

2. Complicated assembly/construction is required, normally by an experienced adult.

3. The structure can not be easily disassembled for storage when not in use.

4. Price is often prohibitive to many potential customers.

5. A flat and level surface is required, particularly in tent usage.

6. Large, bulky, heavy components are normally used, particularly in tree house building.

7. Wooden constructions, particularly in tree house building, require regular maintenance to sustain the safety and functionality. I. * S * *S.

Features of The Treepee that aim to resolve these problems are: * S 1. The Treepee comes in a variety of sizes ranging from O.5m diameter for the Twigwam' : (trademarked) to 2.Om diameter for the Giant Treepee'. And being suspended does not require a space larger than the size of the product.

* ** 2.The Treepee is ready to use, it is supplied, folded into four sections, for ease of trans-port/storage, and can be easily assembled by an unqualified adult of older child.

*SSS..

3. The Treepee can easily be folded back into four sections for easy storage when not in use.

4. The simple, cost effective design allows a more affordable price bracket.

5. Because The Treepee is hung off the floor, it can be suspended above any quality or gradient of terrain.

6. The Treepee is supplied in an easy to carry box that can easily be lifted by a single adult.

7. Being constructed of steel tubing and 600x600D polyester with fire retardant, UV, PU and water resistant coating, The Treepee requires little or no maintenance to sustain it's safety and functionality.

It is constructed to include, if required, a scramble net' for easy access. (See Sheet C, I.) A bag on a rope with pulley system allows goods to be pulled up from ground level through the window. (see sheet C, 2.) The windows are covered in bug mesh with roll up, clear plastic to the outside to allow air to circulate. (see sheet C, 4 & 5.) The 2.Om Giant Treepee' has a central base frame support, (see sheet E, 1.) to allow two people to sleep next to each other without rolling to the centre.

A zip up, drop down bag' is included on the Giant Treepee' for storage. (see sheet E, 2.) All fabric used is Fire retardant, UV coated and water resistant.

The Treepee supports a maximum weight of 150kg.
