Alead football artificial grass turfs are designed to replicate the best natural grass fields.The turf for football fields has soft, non-abrasive fibers that replicate grass in colour, feel and performance.Alead synthetic grass allows the football to “sit” in the surface, controlling ball roll, and allowing freedom of movement for the player to perform sliding tackles and a full selection of skills.Near the base of the fibers sits a layer of recycled rubber, which adds resilience to control ball bounce and absorbs impact.The drawbacks of natural turf are eliminated:The result – a perfect pitch throughout the year.
Cancelled matches due to waterlogged pitches are a thing of the past.
No heavy maintenance to restore worn surface.
Daily maintenance is reduced dramatically
Along with virtually no maintenance or concerns about soil or climatic conditions, many other features make Alead artificial lawn landscape products perfect for your lawns, gardens and other green areas:
No allergy-causing grass pollen and cuttings
No fertilizer required
Lush and green 365 days a year, in drought, frost or soggy areas
Looks and feels like the real thing
Free of harmful materials
Constructed with drainage to dry out quickly
UV stabilized to minimize fading
Alead offers many kinds of artificial turf products, which are made from strong and thick fibers for intensive wear and tear, with good bend recovery and excellent anti-UV effect.
1. Building a stable base for synthetic turf
Synthetic turf systems are designed to have a life span of 10 to 15 years. In this regard, it would be prudent to build a base to match the lifespan of the synthetic turf to maximize investment returns. This can either be a compacted stone base, concrete base or any hard standing area to receive the synthetic turf system.
Synthetic turf systems to be laid directly on a soil base are not recommended. This is because the load bearing capacities of a soil base changes with water content. That is, a soil base softens after rainfall and it's load bearing capacities are reduced. Thus, if load (eg. cycling) is applied on the synthetic turf, permanent depressions will form in the soil base and will be visible on the synthetic turf surface. Accumulated depressions reduce aesthetics and remedial actions, which are costly, may be required.
2. Designing for drainage
Synthetic turf systems are designed for outdoor applications that allows rainwater to flow through quickly and effectively.
By designing effective drainage into our base systems to discharge water, we can prevent stagnant water from accumulating and thus prevent molding, moss, algae and bacteria concerns from arising.
3. Putting Infill on GreenTurf Synthetic turf systems
Using silica sand, rubber granules, thermoplastic elastomer granules and mesh fibres as our infill systems. These materials are laid or built into our synthetic turf system to provide comfort, shock absorbency and to hold up the synthetic turf fibres for a more vibrant lawn look.
Recommending sand or rubber infills as it provides for feel of a natural lawn and helps cool down the surface. For outdoor applications, sand and rubber infill retain moisture in the synthetic turf system in the voids between the granules through capillary action and evaporation of moisture helps to cool down the surface on a hot day. For synthetic turf systems without infill, the synthetic turf can heat up considerably on a hot day and the heat can be felt through the shoes when we walk on it.
4. Joining Synthetic Turf carpet
Our synthetic Turf is supplied to our distributors and agents in two metre wide rolls. For areas wider than two metres, GreenTurf recommends that carpet rolls be joined together to ensure that seams between two adjacent rolls do not become tripping hazards.
Polyurethane adhesive is recommended to be used with textured seaming tapes to join synthetic turf carpet rolls. Polyurethane adhesives weather the elements well and provides for a long lasting bond for peace of mind.
5. Anchoring synthetic turf
Synthetic turf systems can be anchored to the ground to secure the carpet against lifting and vandalism. For countries and areas such as roof tops that experience high winds, it is recommended to anchor the edges of the carpet to prevent wind from flowing under the synthetic turf carpet and lifting it.
However, care has to be taken on excessive anchoring of synthetic turf as it will introduce stresses to carpet joints as synthetic turf carpets (backing) expand and contract with temperature and moisture content.
It's not difficult to maintain the artificial turf. Periodic “cross brushing” of the turf can help restore its aesthetic appearance. It means that all brushing activity takes place against the grain, nap, or sweep of the turf fibers. By brushing against the turf, the fibers are “fluffed up.” Always use a brush with synthetic bristles – never use a brush with metal or wire bristles, because they can inadvertently damage the fibers.
For stains, rainfall is the best way to clean. The most important element to remember is promptness, since it is infinitely easier to clean up a fresh spill than to remove a stubborn blemish once it has dried, hardened. Solid or paste-like deposits can be removed with a plastic table knife or spatula, while excess liquids can be blotted up with paper towels, a clean cloth, or a dry absorbent, such as kitty litter or fuller’s earth. Dry absorbents can then be swept or vacuumed up afterwards.
