A little more information about artificial turf ....
ALLGrass Solutions artificial grass is already a popular alternative to natural grass.
It is used in domestic gardens, commercial landscaping and public spaces.
Likewise, in various architectural and interior design projects that make up the majority of its versatility.
This is where many manage to come up with all sorts of ideas and creative ways.
We often see it incorporated in garden projects, terraces, landscaping, urban planning or decoration in general. It is a truly versatile material for almost any surface or terrain.
It gives a very realistic appearance of always being well cared for.
It also generates a better lifestyle for users due to its low maintenance and worry-free care.
Now, when people think about synthetic grass, about its attractiveness and benefits, most people think only in the sense of how it looks, how it feels and how easy it is to care for.
It is often seen as an investment material that saves time and money.
Generally, the reason for it suggests improving the surface even though it is a true marvel of engineering, technological advancement and manufacturing.
There is much more to synthetic turf than meets the eye.
Underneath its soft green surface, it is a very resistant material.
It is truly a scientific achievement that has transformed and helped to improve the way we think about how we manage the home, the garden and the place we give to technology and design in our lives.
Although we normally talk to our clients on a day to day basis about the benefits of installing artificial grass, we feel it is important to dig a little deeper and get to know artificial grass a little better.
That's why we've put together this quick guide, explaining the basic physiology of this synthetic flooring.
Perfectly developed plastic fibres for a great turf surface.
Each individual strand that makes up and is seen in artificial grass has been spun from a specially produced plastic yarn so that together they result in a natural looking green carpet. The fibres are generally made up of:
- Plastic granules (usually polyethylene, polyester or polypropylene).
- Additives such as UV stabilizers and temperature protection.
- The coloring agents that are of utmost importance.
Traditionally, these synthetic fibresThe grasses are green in colour. Today, the latest generations in the industry have developed true products very similar to the highest quality grasses.
They add multiple shades and curly fillers of brown, yellow or beige or other shades of green. They give the synthetic grass a realistic, three-dimensional appearance.
Latex or polyurethane support base.
All these artificial grass yarns are mainly attached to a latex or polyurethane backing and exist in smaller quantities of other types.
This support base or backing is not only a practical way to keep the turf anchored and supported, but is also very important for the stability of the turf.
This backing is waterproof and very durable. It makes it possible to prolong the life of the synthetic turf and ensure that its use is a profitable investment. Without this backing, the turf would be more susceptible to natural wear and tear.
Silica sand filler, a smart feature
Some types of artificial turf use rubber granules, but most opt for dry sand infill or simply use no infill in addition to the infill that comes with the fibre curling.
This sand filler is very important for several reasons:
- Provides extra support to the fibers and helps them stay upright and elastic.
- Likewise, the sand makes the pavement as a whole gain more weight and stability so that it does not move or lift easily.
- In addition, sand infill protects and preserves the quality of the turf.
- It makes the lawn look more natural and authentic.
- It works as a thermal insulator.
This report is, of course, far from being an extensive guide to the physiology of artificial turf.
After all, there are almost five decades of scientific study and development to catch up, this is just to grasp the basic elements that make up an artificial turf.
So the next time you are thinking of investing in artificial grass, you will already know better what it looks like and how it behaves on that small piece of lawn. Simply put, this material is worth appreciating in all its details because it is truly wonderful for our gardens, terraces and green areas.
