There are also the small 1-meter wide rolls that are practically exclusive to large DIY stores.
These chains offer this format so that it can be easily loaded into the shopping cart and carried in the car.
It is intended for small spaces, usually terraces and balconies.
Finally, the least common of the formats is the width of 3 meters.
There are few factories that do this and few companies that offer them.
If you are looking for this type of format because it is necessary for your project, you will surely pay a higher cost per m2 compared to the other formats in artificial grass models with similar characteristics.
The variables to take into account when choosing the format of the rolls can be the following:
The cubic capacity (volume in M3) of the vehicle in which the roll of artificial turf.
In a car type vehicle, the rolls of 1 meter wide, you can usually load this format without problems.
In minivans and small vans, the rolls are 2 meters wide. Finally, in vans, the rolls of 3 or 4 meters wide.
Choose according to the size of your project and the people who will carry out the installation.
Take into account that the weight per square meter (m2) of an artificial turf for terraces or gardens can be between 2kgs/m2 and 4kg/m2 on average.
For 1 meter wide rolls, one person can usually do the entire installation.
In full width rolls of 2 meters, usually 2 people are needed mostly for loading and unloading; for the 3 and 4 meter wide formats, 2 experienced installers or 3-4 inexperienced people.
Surfaces and spaces:
The size of the roll to be chosen will correspond to the shapes of the surfaces and the amount of spaces to be covered.
For small spaces such as balconies, small terraces, shop windows, a 1 metre wide roll is sufficient.
For gardens and terraces will depend a little on how you want to approach the installation.
This can help you choose from the other widths.
Number of joints:
In most cases, the rule is that the wider the roll, the fewer joints that need to be made between the strips of grass, and obviously more space will be covered without joints.
It will also depend on the quality of the artificial grass, the stitching characteristics and the height of the thread.
The experience of the installer also comes into play.
The number of joints may or may not be a variable to take into account when choosing the width of the roll.
That is, if we choose a lower quality roll, with low height and the installation will be carried out without previous experience.
It is advisable to choose the width of 4 in case you notice the joints, which are less quantity.
