TenCate Permatron®

In 1979, Nicolon B.V. entered into a joint venture with Bay Mills Ltd. of Canada to construct a weaving facility in the United States. In 1980, the manufacturing plant, Baycor, was opened in in Cornelia, Georgia. At this time, Baycor was focusing on the production of fiberglass screening, solar screen, and tennis windscreen. In 1981, Baycor entered the production of polypropylene trampoline mats and developed the brand name Permatron.

Today, TenCate Permatron® trampoline fabric is the number one choice for trampoline mat fabric around the world based on quality, performance, durability and value.

TenCate Permatron is a consistent, high quality fabric with a smooth surface that adds extra comfort for the highest level of customer satisfaction.  

Made of polypropylene and loaded with carbon, this woven fabric has high tensile strength, excellent UV protection and is resistant to mold and water. The fibers are thermally interlocked to provide a smoother, stabilized surface that can withstand constant flexing and stress. However, this material does not stretch; instead, it cushions joints while providing a firm and stable surface. Always returning to its flat position, TenCate Permatron trampoline fabric does not crease or fold.

This fabric can be tailored to meet custom design requirements, and it ships in many roll sizes.  It is also shrink-wrapped for added protection. TenCate Permatron trampoline fabric is manufactured in an ISO-certified facility, guaranteeing the highest quality fabric on the market.

Due to its durability and strength, TenCate Permatron trampoline fabric performs in the harshest environmental conditions.
