Rain or Drought how does synthetic turf perform in Perths harsh climate

CoolPlus Technology– The secret behind this technology is infrared (IR) reflective pigment technology. IR radiation is a componant of sunlight that causes molecular vibration, which translates into heat. The CoolPlus range of synthetic lawns, does not absorb IR radiation, meaning that the synthetic grass heats up slower than traditional synthetic grass, which leads to lower surface temperatures in direct sunlight.

HYDROCHILL™ COOLING SYNTHETIC LAWNS IN PERTH SUBURBS
It is a typical hot Perth day today and all our customers who recently had HydroChill installed on their fake lawns are happy to report they can comfortably relax on their synthetic grass and not worry about it being too hot. Yes, it really works and consumers are over the moon with the results.
Yes the results are in – HydroChill infill has reduced synthetic turf temperatures by up to 28 deg C
First of all a little information on what HydroChill is and what benefit it is to you the customer wanting synthetic turf but worried about the heat. HydroChill is a cooling technology infill that is added to the sand infill that you install with synthetic grass. This simple addition to the turf’s infill provides an average cooling range of 16-28 degrees Celcius and works naturally when hydrated by irrigation, rainfall and dew! Feet and paws will really appreciate the difference All Seasons and Hydrochill will make to your new or existing fake lawn.
Why Install HydroChill with your artificial grass?
In the past, the surface temperature of synthetic lawns was always a concern. While fake grass is great for combating harsh, dry, hot climates, high temperatures can cause the surface of the grass to require frequent rinses with water to stay cool. Now, however, All Seasons Synthetic Turf have a solution in HydroChill, which allows you to enjoy your synthetic lawn any time of day or year. HydoChill can reduce the surface temperature of fake grass, synthetic putting greens, sports surfaces by more as much as 50 degrees, making artificial lawn viable in even the harsh Australian climate. HydroChill Infill can keep your family and pets comfortable outdoors even on warm days.
HOW DOES HYDROCHILL WORK ???
HydroChill works by using moisture or hydration to cool the surface of the grass. As the lawn is heated by the sun, moisture stored in the HydroChill is released and the evaporative moisture removes heat, leaving the surface cool.
HydroChill uses moisture to provide a cooling effect. Rainfall, dew or reticulation can help keep the grass cool for days. During the hot summer, surfaces absorb more energy from the sun and heat up quickly. Surfaces like artificial turf benefit greatly from this cooling system because HydroChill is designed to work on the hottest days when the sun is directly overhead. As conditions continue to heat up around the world and artificial lawns become more popular for areas hit hardest by drought, HydroChill is the best way to combat surface heat and make your outdoor space enjoyable for everyone.
Benefits of using HydroChill infill system
- HydroChill utilizes moisture to provide a cooling effect. Rainfall, dew and irrigation can help keep your lawn cool for days, depending on local conditions.
- HydroChill can be incorporated into all All Season Synthetic Turfs grass range
- HydroChill will not affect the durability or warranty of All Seasons Synthetic Turf products
- HydroChill is Uv resistant
Picture this – We live in a beautiful climate but can get quite heavy down pours. As Australians we tend to do as many events outside as possible, weddings, birthdays, parties, product launches, concerts and of course our big love sporting events.
Just imagine you are at a wedding or an event like the Melbourne Cup our Perths own Ascot, the ladies all are dressed in their finest, beautiful dresses, hats and the dreaded but much necessary stiletto heals. There has been a down poor and the grass is wet, slippy and very muddy, the next thing you know all the ladies are complaining of ruined Jimmy Choo’s
You are at the same events and the rain has been pouring down, but the ladies are still smiling because their designer Jimmy Choo’s are still looking fantastic as artificial turf was installed in the event areas. I know which I would prefer (mind you I do not own a pair of Jimmy Choo’s)
So as you can see, artificial turf can be of great benefit in the rain just as much as the droughts in Perth. Your children and pets can still play out the the garden after a down pour, with out you having to worry about muddy feet all over the tiles or new wooden flooring.
All Seasons Synthetic Turf’s Australian made products have excellent drainage and can cope with heavy consistent down pours. The sand infil which is substantial will also soak up some of that rain, so Mess Free !!!!!
Commercially artificial turf is even more beneficial as we all know playing in the mud can really spoil a game, with All Seasons Synthetic Turf’s sports range you can use your sports facility 365 days of the year.
