The melting point of artificial grass (polyester) is 180 degrees Fahrenheit. It may seem ample, but unfortunately, reflection off of low e windows can elevate temps too well over 240 degrees. Although the melting temperature of artificial grass is high, this does not mean that it has heat resistance. However, some synthetics grass options are made up of other materials with a higher temperature resistances such as polypropylene.
Water drops can also reach the melting point of artificial grass, and water drops on grass leaves can amplify sunlight. As a result, it exceeds the melting point of the lawn, causing it to collapse.
Reflection is the leading cause of the melting of artificial grass. When the sun hits the energy-saving coating, it’s amplified and directed it to the lawn. Thus, it reaches or exceeds the melting point of artificial grass, and it burns.
Therefore, any object that creates reflections will damage your beautiful water, saying lawn.
How to prevent your artificial grass from melting
Fortunately, there are several ways to keep the turf from melting. However, note that these solutions do not eliminate the cause. But on the contrary, they only reduce the impact dramatically.
If you are using a shaded fill, you may need to change to a shallow fill. Lighter fillers absorb less heat than darker colors, but they can still be exposed to life-threatening diseases. Therefore, please change it with better material.
And again, doing that can be expensive. If you want a cheaper option, then you need to look for other ways to prevent synthetic grass from melting.
Using the perforated window screen
This solution is the best way to avoid damage to the lawn. The film reduces refraction/reflection. Also, it distributes heat evenly, ensuring that each point gets the same temperature.
If you choose the Turf Shield window Film, you can rest assured that your artificial grass will no longer burn. Call us today for a quote and save your grass.
