Diamond Supreme Spring Artificial Turf
112 oz, 2.5" Height, Soft W Blade.
Diamond Supreme Spring artificial turf is a super soft artificial turf with a superior cushion. However, its recovery rate is lower than average. Turf temperature under the direct sun is similar to other grasses of this density. The material showed signs of heavy use but didn't become damaged.
See the results and test specifications below.
Meter showed 62 degrees of angle adjustment.
Softer than average.
The tennis ball jumped 15 inches. This is 21 inches less than when the ball was bounced on the office carpet.
Blades recovered 72%
The recorded temperature is 142.2 degrees. This is 13.6 degrees warmer than a piece of plastic under the same conditions.
Wear and Tear
Blades changed shape heavily, recovered to 60%. Wear is visible, but there is no structural damage to blades or backing.
Every test we conduct is measured and compared to a test item for easier understanding.
- How do you measure turf softness?
We brush the turf 5 times with an angle measurement tool that is resistant to friction. The softer the turf, the less movement we will see on the ruler.
The fewer degrees on the ruler, the softer the turf.
- How do you measure cushion?
We drop a tennis ball #3 from 6 ft. above directly on the surface of the turf to measure the cushion. The less it bounces, the more cushion the artificial grass provides.
We compare results to the bounce carpet provides for clarity.
- How do you determine turf recovery?
We place a 30lb weight on the artificial grass material for 5 minutes, then wait 15 minutes at room temperature and measure blade length compared to the original.
- How do you measure temperature?
We measure the temperature under the direct sun after 30 minutes of exposure without wind.
As a data backup, we compare this to the temperature of a stainless steel plate under the same conditions.
- How do you assess wear and tear?
We apply an abrasive brush to the turf for a period of 30 seconds and observe the blade's structure afterward. We look for damage, twist, recovery, and blade structure deformation.
