How TigerCool Benefits Your Artificial Grass for Summer

When it starts to heat up in Sacramento at the start of summer, it’s a blessing and a curse. The warm, sunny weather means that there’s nothing you’d rather do than get outside, play, and enjoy the sun. However, the sun also means heat, humidity, and scalding surfaces. Whether it’s cement pavement or soft grass, every surface underfoot becomes unbearably hot during the summer, resulting in discomfort or even injury. With artificial grass featuring TigerCool technology, you can keep your artificial turf lawn cool and comfortable for hours of worry-free summer fun.

Artificial Turf by Fenix’s TigerTurf products feature the latest innovations available for artificial grass, including the new, revolutionary TigerCool temperature-control technology. TigerCool was created by TigerTurf and Tencate after years of extensive research and development. Tencate, a worldwide innovator of space-age yarns, is perhaps best known for its work with NASA and Boeing. TigerTurf was able to utilize Tencate’s industry-leading yarns to engineer an advanced artificial product with UV inhibitors that reduces turf surface temperatures by up to 15 percent.

The uncomfortably hot temperatures of surfaces such as pavement and grass are caused by the absorption of infrared sunlight into the surface material. Absorbed infrared light is transformed into heat, and conventional dark colors absorb that light at the highest rate. Therefore, the dark colors used in standard artificial grass products absorb large amounts of light and cause a high heat buildup and result in increased surface temperatures. However, heat-reflective color pigments like those used in our TigerCool artificial grass products reflect infrared light rather than absorbing it. This causes a decrease in heat buildup and lower surface temperatures overall. In fact, in a series of solar panel tests, it was found that TigerCool technology successfully reduces artificial grass temperatures by 15 percent or up to 10 degrees. This makes it safer and more comfortable for you and your family to enjoy your artificial grass in Sacramento. 

TigerCool technology is available in two of our bestselling TigerTurf product lines. Both our Diamond series and our Marquee series incorporate TigerCool technology, and both lines boast a wide range of artificial turf products that will suit any need. From light to heavy foot traffic, our synthetic turf products can handle whatever your space requires. Pile heights range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces, so you can achieve the appearance and durability that you like best. All of our synthetic turf products are non-toxic and completely safe for children and pets, so every member of the family can get outside and enjoy the benefits of TigerCool.
