Chill Out on Artificial Grass with TigerCool

Any Laguna Niguel resident knows how uncomfortably hot Southern California summers can be. When July hits and the temperature reaches the 80s or 90s, there’s nothing you want to do more than find a way to cool down. While it’s always the best time to get outside and enjoy the summer sun, those summer activities also come with a lot of sweat, humidity, and scalding surfaces. With OC Turf & Putting Greens’ TigerCool artificial turf products, you can beat the heat and create a backyard oasis that provides comfortable fun for the whole family.

Here at OC Turf, we only offer advanced, industry-leading synthetic turf products that elevate every install. Several of our best selling artificial grass products include first-of-its-kind TigerCool technology, which controls and reduces the temperature of artificial grass surfaces by up to 15 percent. In early variations of poorly-made artificial grass, surface temperatures could often reach as much as 175 degrees. Not only is this uncomfortable for you, but it’s a health and safety hazard for your kids and pets. However, after years of extensive research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have created an innovative temperature-control technology that is revolutionizing the artificial grass industry. Tencate is a worldwide innovator of space-age yarns, best known for their work with NASA and Boeing. Utilizing Tencate’s advanced yarn technology, TigerTurf was able to engineer an artificial turf product that includes UV inhibitors and heat-reflective color pigments that effectively reduce synthetic turf surface temperatures by as much as 10 degrees.

Surfaces become extremely hot in the sunlight because of the absorption of infrared sunlight into the surface material. Absorbed infrared light is transformed into heat, and conventional dark colors absorb light at the highest rates. The dark green and brown colors used in artificial turf products absorb large amounts of light, which causes a high heat buildup and results in high surface temperatures. However, heat-reflective color pigments like those used in TigerCool technology reflect the light rather than absorb it, which causes a lower heat buildup and lower surface temperatures as a result. This makes it safer and more comfortable for your family during the warm, sunny months in Laguna Niguel.

TigerCool technology is currently incorporated into two of our bestselling product lines. Both the Diamond series and Marquee series include TigerCool technology, and both lines boast a range of artificial grass products that will suit any project. From light to heavy foot traffic, we can choose an artificial turf product that will fulfill all of your space’s needs. Pile heights in these two lines range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches, and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces. All of our artificial grass products are non-toxic, lead-free, and completely safe for kids and pets.
