Infills are an important element to the installation of your artificial grass lawn. An Infill also known as Durafill is most commonly an acrylic coded silica usually used for landscaping, and keeps surface 30 degrees cooler and softer.
The Infill’s Turfinet provides are either sand or small rubber particles that are put in between the blades of the turf once installed. Their purpose is to allow the blades to stand up and look like natural standing grass.
Our Rubber Infill is made from recycled rubber from recycled old truck tires, but it heats up a lot faster and is absorbent, meaning that it retains odors and heavy metals. Mostly used for sports fields.
Importance of Infills
Infills are important and is the most recent technology in synthetic grass products to improve installation helping to improve the natural application of the artificial grass. Durafill helps to absorb rain water and animal urine helping to eliminate bacteria. It is only necessary to apply one time upon the synthetic turf installation. Our infills are environmentally friendly and does not contain zinc, dust, or heavy metals.
We have several types of infills all used for different reasons to your synthetic grass installation.
