When summer arrives in Sacramento, residents want to get outside and enjoy the sunshine from the comfort of their own backyards. Soaking up the heat from your back patio is a welcome feeling for many, but sometimes that heat can become a bit too overwhelming. While relaxing on the grass can help you cool off, natural grass can sometimes absorb the sun’s heat more than you’d like and become too hot to sit on or even walk on. Luckily, Synthetic Grass Warehouse Sacramento has the perfect solution—TigerCool artificial grass.
What is TigerCool?
TigerCool offers the latest in artificial grass cooling technology. In early variations of artificial grass, temperatures on the grass’ 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 young kids and pets. However, through years of research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have revolutionized the turf industry through the creation of TigerCool temperature-control technology. Tencate, a worldwide innovator of space-age yarns, is perhaps best known for its work with NASA and Boeing. By utilizing Tencate’s industry-leading yarns, TigerTurf was able to engineer an advanced artificial grass product that significantly reduces artificial grass surface temperatures.
TigerCool synthetic grass is created with heat-reflective pigments and UV inhibitors in order to reduce surface temperatures by up to 15 percent. Natural grass (and other variations of artificial grass) absorb infrared light from the sun and turn it into heat. Dark colors, like the greens and browns found in grass, absorb the most light and create the most heat buildup, causing those surface temperatures to increase the most. TigerCool, however, uses heat-reflective dark color pigments in the production process in order to prevent this heat buildup. With these pigments, infrared light is reflected rather than absorbed, which reduces surface temperatures significantly. In a series of tests conducted by TigerTurf, it was indicated that TigerCool technology was able to successfully reduce artificial grass temperatures by 15 percent, or up to 10 degrees. This makes it safer and more comfortable for your family to enjoy their synthetic grass lawn.
