Don’t Fall Victim to Window Glare

Cold winter temperatures and shorter days might keep you from thinking about melted synthetic lawns due to the extreme heat. But what causes this to happen in the first place, and what can be done to prevent it?

Measure Ground Temps to be Sure

Taking a flamethrower to things obviously produces a melted clump of green plastic. But most owners won’t torch their newly installed turf just to see where it melts at.  The real culprit rests with high efficiency windows and their heat reflective coatings, and that’s where owners need to evaluate potential risks.  

Look for unobstructed windows facing the sun’s path around your turf zone; measure surface temperatures exposed to any glare off them. If any problematic hotspots are found, we can protect your turf before any damage from melting is caused.
