Enjoying your backyard can often be a challenge in the Las Vegas heat, especially during the summer months. However, when choosing synthetic grass, it’s important to choose a product with adequate UV protection.
UV radiation can be very damaging to artificial turf, especially since desert environments receive more sunlight. Because of this, it’s important to invest in synthetic grass that provides an adequate level of UV protection. Here are three key reasons why UV protection is a necessity for Las Vegas turf installations.
It’s common knowledge that leaving an object in the sun for extended periods of time can lead to fading and discoloration. This is similarly true for your synthetic grass landscaping — if it doesn’t have UV protection.
Synthetic turf is manufactured with a blend of differently colored yarns, and those yarns can become bleached by the sun over time when exposed to direct sunlight. To prevent this effect and ensure colorfastness, high-quality turf grass is manufactured with UV inhibitors. All SGW Las Vegas turf products are treated with UV-inhibiting technology to prevent dulling, fading and bleaching from the sun, so your turf will stay vibrantly green for years to come.
Combat Yarn Splitting
Another common side effect of extended sunlight exposure is yarn splitting. This refers to the fraying and deterioration of turf blades over time as they’re exposed to extreme sunlight and heat. When yarn splitting occurs, not only does your turf become less visually pleasing, but it also changes in texture to a more uncomfortable, less grass-like surface.
Luckily, SGW Las Vegas turf fibers are some of the most advanced in the industry. Our UV-treated turf blades are engineered to withstand the sun’s rays without significant deterioration or fraying, so your artificial grass will remain feeling just as soft and comfortable as natural grass even with extended exposure to the Las Vegas heat.
Keep Surfaces Cool
For many homeowners, user comfort is just as important as the integrity of their turf product. When Las Vegas heat reaches its peak, surfaces can become unbearably hot to the touch, making it impossible to soak up the sun with any level of comfort. This can be especially true for desert environments, where the sunlight is even stronger and unimpeded by other objects that could create shade.
If you’re concerned about uncomfortably hot surface temperatures on your turf installation, choose a turf grass product with TigerCool technology. This industry-leading heat-reflective technology helps cool turf surface temperatures by up to 15 percent. This not only minimizes the chances of your turf overheating and becoming damaged, but it also keeps your artificial grass more comfortable for you and your guests.
