Does artificial grass get hot?
As you know everything in life has PROS and Cons and we like to be honest with our customers on what they are getting. One of the major concerns of Artificial Turf customers is that it gets hot. Artificial grass with installation will never become too hot for dogs or kids to the point that it burns or injures them, but f you are living in a very hot climate, your entire lawn might be a bit unpleasant for your dog during a summer’s day.
Don’t worry we have taken several considerations to solve this issue.
First our artificial turf has a CoolFlo Technology . CoolFlo technology is the latest innovation in the artificial grass industry. When the sun is out and it’s hot, synthetic turf doesn’t stay as cool as natural grass due to the water content found in natural grass. Synthetic grass does not radiate heat like rock, pavement or brick. CoolFlo Technology allows heat to dissipate passively. CoolFlo Technology has been tested by experts in a controlled environment and has been proven to keep turf 15 degrees cooler. You can read more about it from one of our suppliers CoolFlo system.
Another way to keep grass even cooler is by the use of infills. The right infill will allow air to flow throughout the grass, cooling it down significantly, as well as making the grass feel softer as you walk through it. The modern, light-colored infills are: Silica sand and durafill sand are both superior choices, designed with lighter colors so they don’t trap the heat from sun rays within your lawn. If you want it even cooler you can add a Tcool infill if you want to know more about this infills or how to keep your artificial grass cooler you can read TºCool Turf or Calland one of our experts will answer all of your questions.
