Protection with outdoor fabrics

TenCate Outdoor Fabrics (a business unit of TenCate Protective Fabrics) focuses mainly on the development and production of technical textiles for the camping market. In Europe TenCate has the lion’s share of the market for tent extensions; in trailer tents it is far and away the market leader. 
TenCate also supplies fabrics for emergency aid, refugee work and the army (group tents). You can recognize a tent or front extension based on TenCate outdoor fabrics from the label bearing a text such as TenCate All-Season or TenCate Materialized™. This co-branding allows the tent manufacturer to link his name to the brand and reputation of TenCate.
outdoor fabrics
Tent cloth (and sun awning) must provide shelter, last a long time and satisfy the highest standards of quality, sustainability and environmental requirements.
Often a special design is developed for a tent maker, which enables him to create a distinctive profile for himself.
Trends include the demand for flame resistance and self-cleaning properties, sustainable coatings, and customers who are turning away from the Far East for making their tents.
