Ask and compare face weights, stitch rates, warranties and backings. There are less expensive backings now with many claims and do not qualify to be used on football fields. Comparing the aforementioned will reveal the quality of the products and what you are getting for your money. We also proudly carry TigerTurf products, designed and built in the U.S.A.
Yes there is. Turf should be rinsed and groomed periodically. The frequency is determined by the activity level. For example, areas with a dog should be rinsed more often. Likewise, the higher the traffic the more often the turf should be groomed. After a quick rinse, use a stiff bristled broom or a rake to groom up fibers, that will help preveny matting. If the turf is not groomed regularly or if it is neglected and does matt substantially, having it professionally groomed mechanically can restore it’s appearence. It is also a good idea to have stepping stones or some form of path for a repeated, heavy traveled pattern through the turf.
Yes! And it is becomming extremely popular for animal hospitals, kennels and home owners with pets. Animal urine does not damage or fade the turf. What is most attractive is even with pets a green lawn can be sustained.
Simply rinse with water as needed. With pets, pick up solid waste and any residue can be spray cleaned. Rinse as frequently as needed to avoid odors which are a build up of bacterial spores. Durafill does not absorb external elements, which limits bacteria and odor as well as many other benefits. For a thorough cleaning which should be rarely needed-flush with a mixture of 50% white distilled vinegar and 50% water. Afterwards flush with water. This will nuetralize all bacterial spores.
The turf can get hot in temperatures usually above 85-90 degrees in direct sunlight. Blade temperature can be decreased with Durafill. Durafill does not heat like rubber, therefore not transferring that intense heat into the blades of grass.
Non-Infill products are convenient when directly to the public or simply to make an install easier and less expensive. There are crucial, functional reasons for infill. The primary reasons are the following: the infill gives a barrier and protects the tufts during activity. The infill is used for balast-on typical install there will be thousands of pounds of infill to weigh down the product. The infill offers G-MAX, which is the softness under your feet, it’s safer too. Infill also offers a base for increased blade recovery.
The backing is perforated and will drain as natural grass typically would. If drains are needed with natural grass then synthetic grass should be treated the same.
The sheen will progressively diminish and go away. Some products in the market place are shinier than others for various reasons i.e. wider blades refract more light. The length of time depends on the product and the chemical make up of your yarn.
