There is more than meets the eye with synthetic grass! Turf comes in not only different color combinations and grass blade lengths, but also different grass blade shapes. Blade shape can actually determine how well a fiber responds to solar glare, heat retention, and how well it resists fraying. TurfHub has a variety of blade shapes and options that are specifically designed to withstand foot traffic, pet traffic, and a variety of different climates. Each blade type creates an entirely different look and serves a different purpose. Once you understand what different types of artificial grass options are offered, you’ll be better equipped to make a decision on which turf will best meet your needs at the lowest costs. Not sure which blade type is ideal for your project? Continue reading below to find out!
W-Shaped Blade: Bermuda, Bermuda Pro, Coastal Blend, Coastal Blend Pro
Synthetic grass with “W” shaped fibers takes turf to a whole other level. The super intelligently designed W-shaped fiber is highly durable and is optimal for all geographic regions. Due to the shape of these kinds of blades and the fact that they have no flat surface to collect or reflect heat off of, these fibers do not retain as much heat energy as other types and therefore keep the surface temperature at an average of 15 degrees cooler in hot weather climates. These fibers are perfect for homes, playgrounds, and commercial properties.
Double W-Shaped Blade: Products Coming Soon…
Synthetic grass with double “W” shaped fibers is a realistic option for any landscape that has medium to high amounts of foot traffic! Double W-shaped yarn contains three veins that create a very realistic look, so much so that most people cannot tell the difference between natural grass and this artificial grass. The wavy surface of each blade reduces the possibility of an unnatural, white-plastic appearance by diffusing sunlight. Another advantage of the double W-shaped blade is that it is highly durable under constant pressure and foot traffic. Turf with this type of blade has a life expectancy of up to twenty years.
Diamond-Shaped Blade: Products Coming Soon…
Synthetic grass with “diamond” shaped blades makes one of the most popular types of turf in the industry because it is designed to have a soft luxurious feel, while still emulating a natural grass blade appearance. Turf manufactured with diamond-shaped blades is perfect for both commercial and residential landscape projects and yards or playgrounds with medium to high foot traffic.
V-Shaped Blade: Glacier, Glacier Pro
Synthetic grass with “V” shaped fibers is ideal for customers looking for a high-performing product at a great price. These V-shaped fibers assist in lowering grass surface temperatures and are also perfect for high traffic applications because the blade structure allows the grass to stand up straighter and spring back more quickly. These fibers are perfect for playgrounds and pet areas.
S-Shaped Blade: Mohave Blend, Mohave Blend Pro
Synthetic grass with “S” shaped fibers has an exceptionally soft feel while also providing great performance. This type of fiber replicates natural grass because the shape prevents shine and solar glare. It does this by distorting the surface area available to direct sunlight at any given point in time. These fibers are perfect for any landscape application such as parks, homes, and commercial properties.
Oval-Shaped Blade: Fescue, Fescue Pro, Laguna, Laguna Pro
Synthetic grass with “oval” shaped fibers is typically found in landscape installations. The oval-shaped blade provides a soft-fiber technology and is perfect for those looking for a soft, yet durable product. The oval-shaped blade also allows multi-directional movement and improves resilience and is ideal for landscaping designs, playgrounds, and pet areas.
TurfHub’s new three dimensional turf products have revolutionized the synthetic grass industry. The ability to make artificial turf look more natural while maintaining its performance & durability and lowering the surface temperature has been a game changer in the turf industry.
