Professional Opinion

The Artificial Turf Lab Reviews

Hillside artificial turf is natural-looking grass with average softness and cushion. It recovers at an average rate and looked brand new after brushing. Turf temperature under the direct sun is lower than average because the turf is less uniform. The material is resistant to wear and tear but showed signs of heavy use.

See the results and test specifications below.

Test Results

Softness

Meter showed 86 degrees of angle adjustment.

Average softness.

Cushion

 The tennis ball jumped 21 inches. For reference, the office carpet jumps the ball 36 inches.

Recovery

Blades recovered 89% 

Temperature test

The recorded temperature is 128.2 degrees. This is 7.4 degrees cooler than a piece of plastic under the same conditions.

Wear and Tear

Blades changed shape, recovered to 65%. Wear is visible. No structural damage to blades or backing.

Test Specifications

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.
