As long as the glue is not cured, remove the artificial turf carpet carefully with a wide spatula, scrape and flush together with pressure.
Not less than 6-8 kg/m², otherwise a resistance of the artificial turf fibres cannot be ensured.
Other types of sand are not recommended. The burnt sand is free of weed seedlings and easy to handle. If the sand isn’t rounded, the sharp grains damage the artificial turf and reduce the service life.
The artificial turf carpet is also functional and durable without sand. However, the artificial turf fibres can be trampled without a sand layer. To obtain the most natural look and feel of the artificial turf, it is recommended to brush the turf frequently. To avoid waves or bumps and sliding of the surface, the artificial turf carpet should be glued to the base.
Mix both adhesive components in the ratio. Use a drill with a mixer and mix until a homogenous mass is formed.
Bordering the surface of the artificial turf carpet with curbs and cut the back of the turf.
The artificial turf should lie on a gravel or fine gravel layer, if a quick drainage is important, e.g. kindergartens, or the ground cannot absorb the water. The water drains through the drainage holes.
The artificial turf, which is already installed, can be conforming individually. Also trees can be integrated without any problems. The holes for the drainage enable the seepage of the water.
Broken or crushed stone is not stringently necessary. Other surfaces which leak water are also possible.
We recommend fixing the artificial turf invisible with galvanized nails when you want to install the artificial turf on steeply slopes.
You can sweep off dried feces with a brush. Alternatively you can use a dustpan and rinse the artificial turf with water. Water doesn´t damage the fibres of the artificial turf and you achieve a cleanly surface.
You can sweep the foliage away or use a garden vacuum carefully.
The snow could be swept away. Please don´t use a banker off or a de-icer.
Please rinse the artificial turf with clear water. The liquid flow through the holes of drainage into the ground. Water doesn´t damage the fibres of the artificial turf and you achieve a cleanly surface.
If you want to use them, please be careful. Normally you don´t have to use a rake. You can easily clean the turf with a hard brush.
Sometimes the wind blows seeds on the artificial turf. It could happen that in the sand of the turf the seeds grow up to weed. You should pick it out by hand.
In the course of using the interspersed sand will be compacted. You can brush the blanket fibres and refill the artificial turf with sand, if it is needed.
It is not necessary to use herbicide because the grounds prevent the growing of weed. If weed and moss are in the sand of the artificial turf, you can brush them out when the turf is dry.
Unproblematic. If you can see pressure marks after you put them away, you can brush the fibres up.
You can drive across the turf if you drive carefully and slowly. But it also depends on the consistency and carrying of the underground.
Similar like on the natural grass you should put the fireplace on a fire-resistant and robust base. Furthermore you should protect the turf against flying sparks.
The artificial turf won´t burn if it gets in directly contact with fire or hot objects. But after the contact you can see a irreversible fire damage.
The high quality fibres were coated with a finish, which prevent adhesion. Special tending strategies are not necessary.
Of course! You can use and enjoy the artificial turf like a natural turf.
Artificial turf is long-living on normal terms. Only when you use it very intensive you should replace the artificial turf after 15-20 years. Only when you use the artificial turf with a high load, you should replace the turf earlier.
The mole couldn´t get through the strong bottom side of the artificial turf mat.
The UV durability of artificial turf is very high as per manufacturer information, because the artificial turf is designed as a turf for outdoor using. A bit optical whitening of the fibres is normal for the natural aging of each material which is used outside. The colour consistency in the overall assessment of the colour is secured for minimum 15 years when we expect a normal aging. Partially the products are used in zones with very high UV radiation for many years. Especially the GOLDEN LUSH is favoured in Australia and New Zealand.
It is a synthetic material. The fibres consist of Polyethylen (PE), the back of the turf of Polypropylen (PP). Both materials are harmless for the enviroment and without heavy metal.
Natural grass is what we attempt to imitate and emulate. During the development phase we placed the greatest of importance on creating the most natural artificial turf possible in terms of its feel and appearance. The natural appearance of the artificial turf is increased thanks to the interwoven of the texturized bottom fibres.
Tufting is the technology, which runs the fibres in the backing.
The yarn fibres of the artificial turf differ in the yarn fineness (also called titer). The yarn fineness indicates the relationship between weight and length.
TEX is the unit of measurement in accordance to ISO 1144. This size can specify the weight (in grams) per length (in kilometers) if the artificial turf fibres.
1 tex = 1 gram per 1.000 meters
In the field of artificial turf there are mainly the unit dtex (decitex)
1 dtex = 0.1 tex
Thus, for the mass:
1 dtex = 1 gram per 10.000 meters
Yes. The countless advances of artificial turf create a large additional value. With the innovative technology of material and production you can almost see no difference between natural and artificial turf. Especially in the long run you can save money when you use artificial turf in comparison to natural grass.
