A swimming pool is a preferred area for entertainment, fun, and relaxation, but lawn around pools poses a maintenance challenge. Global Syn-Turf synthetic grass solutions solve the problem. Our synthetic grass designed with KoolMax technology is ideal for swimming pool applications.
With swimming pools built for kids, safety is a top priority. Injuries and accidents are common with children, but if you make the right choices, it can help minimizing the number of injuries, including using artificial grass for your playground. Artificial turf is a soft material that will decrease the number of skinned knees, blisters and broken bones. You can use a variety of foam, or shock pads that can be installed underneath the synthetic turf to provide an additional level of cushioning in the event of falls.
Artificial turf has many useful applications. The most common uses are for landscape lawns, dog areas and putting greens. We also make synthetic grass for putting green, playgrounds, swimming pool surrounds, patios and balconies, traffic medians, indoor and outdoor sports fields, batting cage facilities, retail displays, tennis courts and bocce ball courts. Many of our customers purchase the turf for indoor playrooms, dog agility courses, backyard chess boards, and more. Our synthetic grass can be used for multiple reasons, and are not restricted to only outdoor purposes.
Our artificial turf comes with a 10-year warranty, but the real life expectancy is dependent on use and care. Typically speaking, Global Syn-Turf synthetic grass lasts on average 20 years.
Is the synthetic grass get hot under the sun?
Yes, synthetic grass is hotter than regular grass; it does not have the same natural cooling capacity. There are invariably trade-offs for the benefits, which include no watering, no mowing, no weeding, no chemical applications, no fertilizers, easier dog clean up, no muddy paws or fur, etc. The only issue is that synthetic grass is heated more than natural grass. But there never had been a complaint that the synthetic surface gets so hot that it burned someone. With our KoolMax technology, artificial grass is 25% cooler than grass manufactured by competitors. KoolMax significantly reduces the surface area of our artificial turf and makes the heat trade-off nearly obsolete.
Artificial Grass Vs. Energy Efficient Windows
In some instances, Energy Efficient Windows can create amplified reflections that may cause synthetic grass to melt, if it is in the direct way of such reflection. The magnification from some Energy Efficient Windows is so great that it can melt sprinkler heads, plastic pools, chairs, etc. Tinting the windows is usually enough to solve this problem.
Artificial Grass in Hot Weather Conditions
The darker green colored fiber of synthetic turf absorbs more sun than the lighter shades of green and olive. On especially hot days, consider this: Have at least one portion of your lawn area screened for instant relief. If the temperature gets too hot, it's always pleasant to have a little shelter area until it cools down again. Also, you can spray the synthetic turf with water immediately before you walk or play on your fake grass on a really hot day. Also, you can always wear footwear. Another thing that can be done to moderate heat on synthetic turf is adding a light color of silica sand or Zeofill (if you have pets.) The extra heat doesn't bother most people as long as they remain moving. But, even if these forethoughts are not used, hot weather has not kept people or pets off of synthetic turf.
