African Cats bv Ringdijk B.P. 10 1188 WC AMSTELVEEN The Netherlands July 21, 2009 PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: AFRICAN CATS changes DYNEEMA® Trampoline webbing mesh sizes! African Cats introduced the new Trampoline webbing for catamarans made from Dyneema® fiber three years ago and it is a tremendous success. Many Catamaran owners have already installed this Dyneema fiber webbing to their full satisfaction. Now the mesh sizes have been altered to suit different customer needs even better. The dyneema® webbing is UV-resistant, has less than 2% stretch and is far stronger then presently used webbing materials. It is at least 75 % lighter (350 g/m2 for the 9 mm mesh) and much stronger than the normally used trampoline materials and is also very open more than 80%, so water can fall true the webbing very easily which is safer. African Cats is offering mesh sizes in 9, 12 and 17 mm from stock now. The bigger mesh size is used on trimarans and the 9 and 12 mm are excellent for catamaran trampolines. Dyneema® Trampoline webbing sizes: Size Suitable for Catamarans Suitable for Trimarans Suitable for other purposes 9 mm square 12 mm square 17 mm square yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes Because of the low stretch it is easily possible to tie the trampoline webbing directly to the hulls and the forward crossbeam so there will not be any openings between the yacht and the trampoline making the forward platform a safer and more stable place to work or relax. The maze sizes mentioned are immediately available from stock. In other sizes African Cats can deliver orders with a minimum weight of 100 kilo’s. The carrying weight is more than a 500 kg/m2 as each wire of 2 mm thick has a breaking load of more than 130 kilos. African Cats invites any interested multihull builder to contact them, if they want to use the same material so they can also produce safer and lighter multihulls.
