Trampoline service becomes necessary after perimeter stitching deteriorates in the sun's UV-rays. Depending on your location and your trampoline's sun exposure, stitching typically lasts 3 to 8 years before failure. When stitching fails, the trampoline mat's webbing and triangular v-rings pull away from the edge of the mat. While its appearance is poor, usually the black polypropylene fabric is not harmed and can be repaired.
All trampoline mats are inspected prior to service because some mats are not suitable for repair. Factors that hurt your trampoline mat's chances for repair -
Excessive holes may make a new trampoline mat more economical.
Holes over 1-inch wide make the trampoline mat unsuitable for repair.
If your mat has been repaired before, it may be unsuitable for another repair.
Trampoline mats over 10-years old are poor candidates for repair.
Normally, when stitching fails the trampoline fabric is undamaged. However,if your black trampoline fabric is torn along the edge, your trampoline mat is not repairable.
