EVERGLADE SPRING LIGHT Artificial Turf
77 oz, 1.5" Height, Durable Omega Blade.
Everglade Spring Light artificial turf is a lightweight turf with average softness and less than average cushioning. It recovers well and looks new after a bit of brushing. Turf temperature under the direct sun is lower than average. The material showed heavy use however there was no damage to the blade or backing.
See the results and test specifications below.
Meter showed 82 degrees of angle adjustment.
Average for turf.
The tennis ball jumped 24 inches. For reference, the office carpet jumps the ball 36 inches.
Blades recovered 92%
The recorded temperature is 124.8 degrees. This is 6.8 degrees cooler than a piece of plastic under the same conditions.
Wear and Tear
Blades changed shape, recovered to 75%. Wear and heavy use is visible. No structural damage to blades or backing is showing.
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.
