Ask JW: Is Your Artificial Turf Melting?

Over the decades, synthetic turf has become landscaping’s most popular product to hit the market since the lawnmower. Through research and development, synthetic turf has evolved rapidly, and it’s only getting better. New components that make up the synthetic turf systems have become quality-driven. The backings are produced with a higher quality of textiles and produce strong tuft bind. The coatings that are applied to the backings are more resilient, flexible and can withstand thermal contraction better than before. The yarn that produces the fibers has high tech admixtures that prevent degradation and gives the synthetic turf longer life expectancy.

Window glare, however, and its ability to melt objects and materials has been an ongoing issue for a long time now. Intense heat being transferred through sunlight can cause damage, and sometimes injury. The first step in preventing property from being damaged from Reflective Ultraviolet Rays is to find out if you are a candidate or not. This month ASK JW will help you understand the issues that arise from reflective heat and how you can prevent any future damage to your synthetic turf, furniture, toys and surrounding materials and objects.
