Why TigerCool Artificial Grass is Perfect for Summer Fun!

The summer heat can be a double-edged sword. The warm weather makes you want to go outside and soak up the sun’s rays, but sweltering heat can also cause your grass and other surfaces to become uncomfortably hot and even dangerous. Luckily, Synthetic Grass Warehouse offers innovative TigerCool artificial grass with temperature-control technology to help you stay cool and have fun all summer long.

 

Developed by TigerTurf and Tencate, TigerCool has revolutionized the synthetic grass industry. TigerCool is a first-of-its-kind technology that controls and reduces the temperature of artificial grass surfaces by up to 15 percent. In early variations of artificial grass, temperatures on the lawn’s surface could often reach more than 175 degrees. Not only is this uncomfortable for you to walk on, but it also poses a health hazard for your small children and pets. However, through years of extensive research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have manufactured a superior synthetic grass product that will remain significantly cooler under the summer sun. This enhanced comfort allows you to enjoy outdoor activities with your friends and family without any of the pain or discomfort associated with overheated outdoor surfaces.

 

TigerCool works using UV inhibitors and heat-reflecting color pigments. Normally, dark color pigments such as those used in artificial grass will absorb the sun’s infrared light and convert it into heat. This high level of heat buildup increases surface temperatures and makes them uncomfortable to walk, run, or play on. TigerCool synthetic turf, however, uses color pigments that reflect the sun’s light rather than absorbing it, reducing heat buildup dramatically and thereby lowering surface temperature up to 10 degrees. With a TigerCool synthetic grass lawn, every member of the family can get outside and enjoy some summer fun.

 

TigerCool is incorporated in our best-selling Diamond and Marquee series. Both lines offer multiple products that suit every need, from light to heavy foot traffic. Pile heights range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches, and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces. All of our products are safe for children, pet-friendly, and non-toxic, so nothing has to stop your favorite summer activities.

How to Utilize Turf for Indoor Athletic Facilities

The benefits of artificial grass for outdoor spaces such as backyards and sports fields are well known. The enhanced aesthetic appeal and improved durability make it an ideal solution for a range of landscaping options. However, indoor athletic facilities are another area where synthetic grass can be utilized to the fullest. More and more, health clubs and training facilities are taking advantage of artificial turf’s visual appeal and functionality in order to create a workout space that can accommodate nontraditional workouts and meet customer demands.

Whether it’s a batting cage, an athletic field, or a conditioning gym, any type of indoor sports facility can benefit from the unique traits of artificial grass. It’s designed to be highly durable, so it can withstand hours, days, and months of high foot traffic while resisting wear and tear. High-quality turf products won’t develop holes, tears, or discoloration, enduring better than rubber flooring or natural grass. It can also be installed with an eco-friendly foam underlayer which reduces pressure on the joints and minimizes shock. It also reduces the impact of falls and the risk of injuries for safer workouts. Enhanced safety and wellbeing are always a good selling point for indoor athletic facilities of any kind.

Synthetic turf is also beneficial for indoor facilities due to its low maintenance requirements. There’s no need for the grass to receive sunlight to stay green, making it perfect for indoor use. It doesn’t need to be watered or trimmed, and its ultra-efficient drainage makes spills and messes a non-issue. Our artificial grass products can also be installed with an antimicrobial infill which prevents the spreading of germs and harmful bacteria, a prevalent concern for athletic facilities.

When you choose synthetic grass for your indoor sports facility, you can rest assured that you’re receiving a quality product that can accommodate any need. Here at Synthetic Grass Warehouse, all of our products are non-toxic, lead-free, and backed by the best warranty in the industry. For turf that’s as tough as you are, choose Synthetic Grass Warehouse for your gym or field.

How to Care for Artificial Grass in Snowy Weather

Many homeowners throughout the US love artificial grass landscaping for its ability to withstand cold weather and come out of winter unscathed. Whereas natural grass will die off in extreme conditions, artificial turf won’t be damaged by frost or other winter weather such as heavy rain or hail. However, your synthetic grass does require proper care in order to ensure that it is in peak condition for spring and summer fun.

 

While artificial grass won’t get damaged on its own due to frost, the blades can become brittle if they freeze. If these brittle blades are walked on, damage can occur. While artificial grass blades are very resilient, they’re not completely indestructible. It’s best to allow all of the snow and frost to melt and drain naturally through the perforated backing before resuming backyard activities. If you do have to walk across your turf while it’s frozen, take extra care while walking in order to avoid breaking or damaging any blades.

 

A covering of snow, unlike complete freezing, won’t affect your ability to walk on the turf. You are able to walk and play on snowy artificial grass without worrying about fibers breaking. However, you shouldn’t allow the snow to pile up too much or the compacted snow will turn into ice and become dangerous. Remove packed snow either by hand or with a plastic shovel. After the snow has fallen and melted, your grass may be slightly matted from the weight of the snow. However, it should bounce back naturally over time. Help lift the pile by cross-brushing it as you would during any other time of year. This extra push will help return the appearance of your turf to normal more quickly. 

 

One way that many homeowners melt ice and snow is by using salt. However, when it comes to artificial grass, we advise against using salt; instead, let the snow melt naturally. Salt can clog up the holes in the backing of your turf and hinder your lawn’s full drainage capabilities. If you do need to use salt for any reason, use it sparingly and very occasionally. Your turf will be fine to use after snowy weather if you allow it to take care of itself and avoid the temptation to speed up the process. 

 

With winter rapidly approaching, it’s advisable that all homeowners with artificial grass know how to properly care for their lawn throughout the season. Artificial turf is an excellent landscaping solution for properties in areas with extreme weather due to its ability to withstand anything from the driest climate to arctic blasts. If you’re seeking a low-maintenance landscaping solution that will stay evergreen and pristine through anything, nothing beats SGW artificial grass. We have one of the biggest inventory selections in the industry, and all of our products come with an unbeatable 15-year warranty. If you’d like to speak to one of our representatives about the best synthetic turf for your next project, give us a call today and get started.

With artificial grass, you can amplify your backyard and create a dynamic space that’s perfect for group activities and games. Here are a few fun backyard activities for Labor Day that can be easily achieved with artificial grass.

Water Activities

From running through a sprinkler to water gun fights, no summer is complete without plenty of water games to cool off the whole family while still having fun. However, excessive water from these activities can leave your natural grass lawn waterlogged and muddy. It can also damage your grass and leave wet grass blades clinging to you and your family, causing wet grass to end up inside your home. However, with artificial turf, water fights can be worry-free. Synthetic turf won’t break or get muddy, so there are no more messes to clean up or worry about after the fun is over. Artificial turf’s ultra-efficient drainage system also guarantees that your lawn won’t flood and will even be dry to the touch within an hour.
