QUESTION: WHAT IS FACE WEIGHT?
ANSWER: Face weight is how much the yarn weighs per square yard not including the backing or the infill (yarn only). This measurement tells you how much product you are getting for your money and how dense the finished product will look. Every ounce makes quite a difference especially when comparing between similar blade types such as slit film or monofilament.
QUESTION: WHAT ABOUT QUALITY?
ANSWER: Quality is a very important factor when installing a quality product. Be sure to compare and ask about face weights, blade types, backings and warranties. Warranties are specifically important because properties in the yarns dictate the length of the warranty.
QUESTION: WHAT IS APPROPERIATE STYLE?
ANSWER: Many Synthetic Turf applications are installed with generic styles of turf due to an assumption that all turf is the same or a limited variety is offered. Very low activity areas need to address quality, density and aesthetics where as areas with a mid-level activity or more should have a thatch product with a high density installed. A high density thatch based product significantly recovers better during activity and grooming.
QUESTION: WHAT ABOUT INSTALLATION?
ANSWER: Not all installations are created equal! ... Installation quality is very important for aesthetics and longevity. How the sub-surface is sculpted, the edges are addressed, how the product is secured. These are some of the issues. If you are unsure take time and look at installs.
QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OTHER COMPANIES TURF?
ANSWER: Ask and compare face weights, stitch rates and backings. There are less expensive backings now with many claims and do not qualify to be used on football fields. Comparing the aforementioned will reveal the quality of the products and what you are getting for your money.
QUESTION: IS TURF GOOD FOR PETS?
ANSWER: Absolutely! And it is becoming extremely popular for animal hospitals, kennels and home owners with pets. Animal urine does not damage or fade the turf. What is most attractive is even with pets a green lawn can be sustained.
QUESTION: IS THERE ANY MAINTENANCE INVOLVED?
ANSWER: Yes there is. Turf should be rinsed and groomed periodically. The frequency should be determined by the activity level. For example, a dog are should be rinsed more often, and the higher the traffic the more often the turf should be groomed. Rinse to clean and use a stiff bristled broom or a rake to groom up fibers, which will help prevent matting. If the turf is not groomed regularly or neglected and does matt substantially, having it professionally groomed mechanically can restore it’s appearance. It is also a good idea to have stepping stones or some form of path for a repeated, heavy traveled pattern through the turf.
QUESTION: HOW DO I CLEAN MY ARTIFICIAL TURF?
ANSWER: Simply rinse with water as needed. With pets, pick up solid waste and any residue can be spray cleaned. Rinse as frequently as needed to avoid odors which are a build up of bacterial spores. Forever Green will not absorb external elements, which limits bacteria and odor as well as many other benefits. For a thorough cleaning which should be rarely needed-flush with a mixture of 50% white distilled vinegar and 50% water. Afterwards flush with water. This will neutralize all bacterial spores.
QUESTION: CAN ARTIFICIAL TURF GET HOW?
ANSWER: Artificial turf can get hot from time to time especially in temperatures above 85-90 degrees in direct sunlight. Blade temperature can be decreased with Forever Green. Forever Green does not heat like rubber, therefore not transferring that intense heat into the blades of grass.
QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INFILL AND NON-INFILL PRODUCTS?
ANSWER: Non-Infill products are convenient when directly to the public or simply to make an install easier and less expensive. There are crucial, functional reasons for infill. The primary reasons are the following: the infill gives a barrier and protects the tufts during activity. The infill is used for ballast-on typical install there will be thousands of pounds of infill to weigh down the product. The infill offers a better more pliable performance, which is the softness under your feet, it’s safer too. Infill also offers a base for increased blade recovery.
QUESTION: DOES TURF DRAIN?
ANSWER: Most artificial turf drains, make sure that the backing is perforated and will drain as natural grass typically would. If drains would be needed with natural grass, synthetic grass should be treated the same.
QUESTION: WILL THE SHEEN GO AWAY?
ANSWER: The sheen will progressively diminish over time and go away, besides, you don't want shiny turf do you, it makes it look more plastic and we don't want that, we want a more natural noon right?. Some products in the market place are shinier than others for various reasons i.e. wider blades refract more light. The length of time depends on the product and the chemical make up of your yarn.
