Although installation can be done rather quickly, quality is our #1 priority. Our installers take their time to ensure a quality installation of your new synthetic lawn. The first step is the compaction of the existing soil, followed by the installation of a compacted, approximately 2″ sub-base which would consist of either decomposed granite, crushed granite, or pea gravel depending on the circumstances. The sub-base and the perforated backing allow for proper drainage. The turf is then cut, laid into place, and properly secured with 8″ or 10″ galvanized nails on the edges and the field. The final step is to deeply tuck the edges and infill the blade with a quality, recommended type of infill.
DURAFILL is the latest technology in infill systems. Unlike silica sand and rubber, DURAFILL is non-absorbent, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. These attributes translate into external elements not being absorbed into the infill product itself, such as animal urine. DURAFILL also does not degrade or compact over time as rubber does.
|Chemical Composition:||99.6% Silicone Dioxide; Iron Oxide & Acrylic|
|Angle of Response:||< 30° Deg|
|Melting Point:||2,880° C|
|Hardness:||.6 – 8. Mohs Scale|
The following are some of the many benefits of DURAFILL:
Animal urine and other external elements are not absorbed which eleminates building bacterial spores within the infill product. DURAFILL does not degradate over time and does not need repeated applications. DURAFILL does not become blistering hot in the heat which would otherwise cause more heat by transfer to the synthetic grass. DURAFILL is environmentally safe and does not contain silica dust, zinc or other heavy metals.
