4 Benefits of UV Protection for Your Artificial Turf

If you’re a home or business owner and you’re considering investing in artificial turf, you likely want to make the most of your investment. One of the primary reasons why people make the switch to synthetic turf is that, unlike natural grass, artificial grass doesn’t fade or lose its color so easily. However, this isn’t to say that artificial turf is completely impervious to discoloration from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. To protect your synthetic turf and maximize the effectiveness of your new artificial grass landscaping, your best option is to choose UV-protected artificial turf, such as the products installed by the experts at Grizzly Turf & Pavers.

UV-Protected Synthetic Grass Prevents Discoloration

The sun is the natural enemy of all things plastic; this includes patio furniture, toys, and of course, artificial turf. Most untreated synthetic turf surfaces are made from nylon, polyurethane, or polypropylene, which are all different types of plastic. With UV-treated artificial grass, each blade is protected from the sun, leaving your lawn to stay green for longer.

UV-Treated Artificial Turf Helps Prevent Blades from Splitting

When exposed to high levels of sunlight, the threads of your artificial grass blades can start to come apart. The weakened blades are further compromised with foot traffic and heavy use of the synthetic turf, which results in the artificial turf grass being ruined and exposing the artificial nature of your synthetic grass lawn. The technologies behind UV-treated artificial turf strengthen the blades and allow them to withstand the elements!

Keep Tensile Strength Intact

Every artificial turf lawn has a varying degree of tensile strength — the synthetic grass’ ability to handle wear and tear for the life of the turf. UV rays can break down untreated artificial grass’ tensile strength, making it more susceptible to breakage. This is especially true for sports turf or artificial turf putting greens. UV-treated synthetic turf is perfect for outdoor event venues, soccer fields, and playgrounds!

Keep Your Family Safe with UV-Treated Synthetic Turf

Once untreated artificial turf breaks down from prolonged exposure to the sun, it will begin to stretch out and sag. This sagging creates wrinkles, which can pose a grave threat to the safety of your family and guests who visit your home and spend time on your artificial grass lawn. By protecting your turf from UV rays, you maintain your synthetic turf’s structural integrity and keep your family safe.
