It gets hot here in Las Vegas and I needed to know if my turf was going to be to hot to walk on. I found Global Syn Turf online and called them up. The representative on the phone educated me on artificial turf and heat. They told me artificial turf does get hot in direct sunlight, in the middle of the day in the heat of the summer. I was told to hose the turf down to drop the temperature, put shade on the turf, leave my sprinklers in to cool down when necessary or use a new infill called T-Cool. This infill T-Cool sounds interesting where it cools the artificial turf down by 30-50 degrees. I did call the Global Syn Turf distributor here in Las Vegas and they came out and gave me an estimate to install artificial turf in my backyard. The sales rep was extremely educational and I felt I could trust him and his company to do a good job for me. Thanks Global Syn Turf for the great education and service.
