Why Artificial Turf?
Artificial grass carpet continues to attract consumers in recent years due to reasons such as maintenance costs of natural grass, low frequency of use, difficulty in growing in areas such as canopy, visual problems such as baldness, decreasing water resources and difficulty in use throughout the year.
There are basically two kinds of artificial turf carpet production.
The first one is the products produced for heavy sports areas such as football fields (these products are made for special purposes and according to the sport to be done, which requires solid flooring and infrastructure construction)
The other group is artificial turf carpets produced for decoration / landscaping purposes. One common question is that all artificial turf is evaluated in the same category, for example the false perception that carpet field application stages will be valid for artificial turf for decoration purposes. During the construction of the carpet field, a number of construction processes such as infrastructure drainage channels, perimeter beam concreting are performed. In artificial turf for decoration purposes, preparation is much simpler and less costly. Often there is no need for pre-preparation.
How the Ground Should Be?
The important thing in artificial turf applications for decoration / landscaping is that the floor is as flat and hard as possible. In artificial turf carpets to be applied in a garden, the ground should be corrected as much as possible and if it is a very soft soil, it should be pressed with a roller. If there is a pit on concrete, asphalt and wood floors, it is enough to fill it with a simple material.
Which Product Should I Choose?
You can prefer all the lawns that appear on our site on hard floors such as concrete, asphalt and wood. On softer grounds such as soil, you will need a product of 15 mm or more. Also, weaving and weaving in the market frequently, flat weaving, curly weaving, 5-10 mm in the range of products produced with a single color yarn will not give the appearance of real grass.
It will give a more artificial green image on the ground. If you want to get a true-to-life look, you can choose natural looking products of 15 mm or more woven from several different color yarns. Believe me, you can hardly understand that they are artificial after bending and handling some products.
How to Assemble?
Wall to wall carpet laying operations are performed. It is important to get the right measure. If additional measures are required, only the joints are attached to each other and the other places are released. So you can’t fix this product by gluing the entire floor. The reason is that they are produced from a petroleum-based raw material and will undergo some expansion under the sun and contraction at night or in the shade. This is an invisible stretch allowance, but if it is fully secured from the bottom, it can cause some wrinkling in the upper part.
How Maintenance, Cleaning?
Ideally, vacuuming is possible, if possible. If this is not possible, it can be washed with pressurized water and swept with a hard broom.
Is There Any Harm To Health?
The materials used during production and their quantities are under strict control. Every product sold in our company meets these conditions, the manufacturers are certain. However, as in every product, we see a lot of products in the market whose contents are unclear, where they are not known, and missed in the controls. Our advice on this is that you choose the place you are good at.
