The Benefits of TigerCool for Summer

Now that we’re in the throes of summer, Azusa residents are experiencing the unbearable heat that Southern California is known for. With hot temperatures comes hot ground to walk on, whether it’s grass or asphalt. When your backyard heats up, you want it to provide an oasis where you can cool off and make the most of the sunshine. Whether it’s you, your kids, or your pets, no one wants to walk around on grass that burns their feet. With our range of artificial grass products featuring innovative TigerCool technology, you’ll never have to worry about high temperatures ruining your outdoor plans again.

Several of our bestselling TigerTurf products feature the latest innovations available for artificial grass, including first-of-its-kind TigerCool temperature-control technology. Through years of research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have revolutionized the turf industry through the creation of TigerCool. Tencate is a global innovator of space-age yarns, whose products have been used by companies such as Boeing and NASA. Utilizing their advanced yarn products, TigerTurf was able to engineer a product with heat-reflective color pigments and UV inhibitors that significantly reduces surface temperatures and, in turn, keeps you more comfortable. 

The extremely 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. Conventional dark colors, such as those used in artificial grass products, absorb larger amounts of infrared light, which causes high heat buildup and increased surface temperatures. With heat-reflective color pigments, such as those used in TigerCool products, infrared light is reflected rather than absorbed, which causes a decrease in heat buildup. This has been proven to reduce surface temperatures by up to 15 percent, or 10 degrees. This makes it safer and more comfortable for you and your family to enjoy your artificial turf in Azusa.

TigerCool technology is available in two of our bestselling TigerTurf product lines. Our Diamond series and Marquee series both incorporate TigerCool technology and boast a wide range of synthetic grass options that will suit any need. From light to heavy foot traffic, our synthetic turf products can handle whatever durability you need. 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 balance of aesthetics and practicality that you like best. All of our products are completely lead-free, non-toxic, kid-friendly, and pet-friendly, so every member of the family can enjoy your new artificial grass lawn and the benefits of TigerCool.
