Whether you are considering using artificial turf for an outside seating area or the lawn surrounding your home, the new generation of artificial turf has changed the way people think about artificial lawns.

 

These new versions of synthetic turf have fewer concerns surrounding their use and they are also much safer.

 

New vs. Old

Old generations of artificial turf contained several different materials. Lead was among the most controversial ones.

 

For years, the artificial turf was placed in recreational facilities and stadiums as it was much more economic and durable as compared to natural grass.

 

When it was discovered that lead has detrimental side effects, artificial turf manufacturers started to reevaluate how it was made and what to replace this material with in order to improve the product’s durability and performance.

 

New generation of artificial turf is made from polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PE) and nylon-polyamide fibers.

 

The new combination of materials has resulted in a turf that looks and feels more like natural grass than anything from the old generations of artificial turf.

 

In the processes of manufacturing new generation of artificial turf fewer chemicals are needed, that’s the reason why it is more secure.

 

Older generations of synthetic turfs resembled heavy carpet. Also, in order to absorb pressure and stabilise the turf, it was made with a thick rubber backing.

 

Synthetic grass manufactured today is made with components that better imitate the feel and structure of natural grass without any heavy rubber coating that traps moisture and odours.

Benefits of New Generation of Artificial Turf

New generation of artificial turf offers many benefits, such as:

 

  • Increased durability thanks to better construction
  • Cost efficient (no fertilising, mowing, or any other type of maintenance)
  • Color doesn’t change or fade with time
  • Retains its appearance through every season
  • Lasts several years with little to no maintenance and virtually with no additional costs
  • More resilient under constant traffic of people

The new generation of artificial turf has been studied extensively in order to learn about its overall efficiency and effectiveness.

 

Studies performed on it are proving that it is much safer to use and much more cost effective as compared to older generations of artificial turf that have been used in the past.

 

This new form of artificial turf is well accepted and considered an outstanding training as well as competition venue in different sports fields around the world, as well as their use for landscaping.

The Bottom Line

The new generation of synthetic turf is not only capable of withstanding extreme temperatures but also the constant wear and tear from the traffic of people that tends to break down the fibers.

 

This new form of artificial turf is used by many international sports federations thanks to its increased performance, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. It combines the characteristics, feel, and look of natural turf, with the benefits of longer playing sessions, increased frequency of usage, safety, lowest cost per playing day, and fewer cancelled games.

All in all, the new generation of synthetic turf is better than ever before.

Professional maintenance of artificial turf https://www.albergrass.com/en/blog/professional-maintenance-of-artificial-turf/ Fri, 06 Sep 2019 04:51:48 +0000 Elea https://www.albergrass.com/mantenimiento-profesional-del-cesped-artificial/

Professional artificial turf maintenance is essential to attain a plush and evergreen lawn, in addition to extending the durability of your artificial turf.

 

The professional installers already consider certain aspects to maintain the synthetic grass in perfect conditions; that’s why either to install artificial turf or if you are thinking of doing an annual maintenance of your lawn, consider using professional providers.

What services should be expected?

Albergrass professional turf maintenance

These are some of the methods used in professional maintenance to enhance and maintain artificial turf.

 

  • Inspection and repair of seams and edges: the joints may open due to excessive traffic of people. The professional team inspects all seams and repairs those that need it.

 

  • Removal of debris: the easiest and fastest way to remove waste from synthetic grass is to use a leaf blower, blowing all the debris to one side and then removing them.

 

  • Artificial grass brushing: brushing artificial turf helps reducing the flattened appearance of the lawn, lifting the fibers and removing traces of the garden.

 

  • Infill replacement: infill is lost through use due to strong winds or excessive traffic of people. The professionals perform the replacement of the filling sand taking into account the manufacturer’s recommendations to ensure that it has an adequate level.

 

  • Disinfectant perfume application (optional): although it is not necessary, it’s recommended to apply the disinfectant perfume to clean and eliminate any bacteria that may be present, especially if you have pets playing on the lawn.

Why should you consider the professional maintenance of artificial turf?

Professional maintenance of artificial turf helps achieve a revitalised turf for your next year.

 

It is carried out more comprehensively than any cleaning that can be carried out in a particular way.  It includes the inspection of seams, and you can even replace the turf areas that have suffered the most (by being near the barbecue or because they are a frequent transit area) with new turf, professional cleaning and brushing and, very importantly, the replacement of the infill sand that has been lost by use.

Albergrass professional turf maintenance

From Albergrass we recommend doing a professional maintenance every year, or every two years, to ensure a lawn in perfect conditions for longer.

Advantages of artificial turf for paddle tennis courts https://www.albergrass.com/en/blog/advantages_of_artificial_turf_for_paddle_tennis_courts/ Fri, 31 May 2019 07:33:54 +0000 Elea https://www.albergrass.com/ventajas-del-cesped-artificial-para-pistas-de-padel/

In recent years, paddle tennis has been the sport that has had the greatest impact on Spanish-speaking societies. In fact, there is data that say it’s the second most practiced sport in Spain after football.

Do you like to play paddle tennis? This sport, of Mexican origin, has gained popularity in recent years and continues to increase. This has led the International Paddle Federation, which governs sports activities, to take more stringent measures when evaluating the fields.

That’s why many artificial turf manufacturing companies had to modify their quality standards in order to continue offering a product that met the requirements demanded by the federation.

One of the objectives that the federation seeks with these new guidelines for paddle courts is that, through an adequate artificial turf, risks of suffering an injury get minimized.

Therefore, clubs and centers specialized in this sport are always recommended to choose very carefully, not only for the comfort of the players, but also to comply with the federation’s requirements.

Reasons to add artificial turf in paddle tennis fields

Since the very beginning, paddle tennis was practiced on hard or cement surfaces. However, there are some theories that suggest that the sport was also practiced on beach sand, although they are not confirmed. 

However, in order to make the sport friendlier with the knee joints, which would allow more people to practice the discipline, artificial turf fields with high durability have been created, which has revolutionized the practice of this sport.

The presence of artificial turf in paddle influences in the bouncing and this has slowed the pace of the game, getting more people interested in the sport.

Another view is that, when falling on artificial turf, the impacts, rubs or burns caused by friction are reduced, compared to cement.

These falls will be softer if you have the best artificial turf on the market, such as those with Albergrass Endurance Pro. Knowing that the impacts will decrease, allows for higher demand from players. They will also benefit from having a soft surface that provides a smooth impact on their joints.

However, for an improved development of the game and avoid uncomfortable injuries, it’s always advisable to warm up before playing and have a sports shoes suitable for the field where the game will take place.

What is the best design for paddle players?

In general, players don’t have influence when clubs or spaces install artificial turf with high durability. However, practitioners may guide builders depending on their use. 

There are several types of artificial turf for paddle, and many of these are adapted to the requirements of the International Federation of this discipline. Each type of turf, such as Winner in two-color green or blue, will maximize the player’s performance according to its playing style. 

It is also necessary to consider the sand filling that the field must have before and after the placement of the artificial turf. This material, if placed and compressed correctly, will not only be beneficial for the players and the ball, but will make the impact on the knee joints softer.
