Synthetic Grass? Galvanized nails? A geotechnical sheet? Liner? You can find all of the explanations regarding professional installation accessories are here!
The synthetic grass market is flooded with importers marketing different and varied types of synthetic grass carpets. Customers who try to research the field a little come across professional concepts concerning the installation procedure and the professional aids needed to carry it out.
synthetic grass in the global industry is usually produced from plastic fibers called polyethylene from the polymer family. The artificial grass infrastructure consists of three layers of latex (rubber). Synthetic grass fibers are resistant to high heat (80 degrees) and extreme cold. The production procedure of synthetic grass requires strict chemical procedures that give the synthetic grass mats flexibility, UV filters that ensure that the color of the synthetic grass will be preserved over time, drainage holes (the synthetic grass permeates 60 liters of water per minute per square meter), fiber forging and flame retardants. Check if the synthetic grass has gone through all the necessary manufacturing procedures and the laboratory tests that prove it.
Installing Synthetic Grass
Installing synthetic grass on land – installing synthetic grass on land requires the following steps: cleaning the area of vegetation, leveling the land, removing sesame gravel at the height of 5 cm, tightening the gravel, removing a geotechnical sheet to prevent weed growth, removing the synthetic grass mats, fixing the grass to the ground using hot-dip galvanized pegs, cutting the grass mats according to the conditions of the area, gluing the seams using PVC sheets and special green glue, combing the fibers and straightening them.
Installing synthetic grass on concrete – cleaning the area, removing the synthetic grass mats, cutting according to the route of the area, gluing the mats to the surface using green designated glue in the surrounding area, adjusting between the seams, brushing the fibers and straightening them.
All the Tools and Installation Accessories
PVC adhesive strips
Polyester sheets that are used to glue the synthetic grass when it is necessary to connect several synthetic grass mats together. The polyester sheets are attached to the bottom of the surface of the synthetic grass and are not visible.
The PVC adhesive tapes are used for easily and professionally gluing one artificial turf to the other. The adhesive tapes are flexible and are treading resistance for many years. To fix the adhesive tape spread Super Green glue on it and attach the artificial turfs to it.
The galvanized spikes are used to fix the turfs to the installation surface. Galvanized Spikes – 20 cm long heat galvanized iron spikes produced using a process which prevents the creation of rust when in contact with water. The galvanized spikes are used to fix the lawn to the installation surface. For maximum attachment when installing stick spikes 15–20 cm apart.
The geo-technical sheet is designed to prevent weed growth in the artificial lawn’s installation area by darkening the area and preventing the photosynthesis process. In addition, the sheet serves as a protective layer for your artificial lawn and is highly drainable.
The geo-technical sheet is designed to prevent weed growth in the artificial lawn’s installation area by darkening the area and preventing the photosynthesis process. In addition, the sheet serves as a protective layer for your artificial lawn. Water easily permeates through so there is no fear of overflows and flooding. When installing, the sheet must be fixed using several galvanized spikes
Synthetic grass border
A synthetic grass border creates a frame for the garden and delimits the synthetic grass within clear boundaries. The liner is designed first and foremost to prevent gravel infrastructure from leaking and thus allow the synthetic grass infrastructure to be durable and stable for years. There are different and varied types of delimiters made of wood, plastic, stone, and more…
It is important to border the area when installing artificial lawns. The border’s main job is to separate the artificial lawn from the garden beds. Since as part of the artificial turf’s installation process sesame gravel is laid, the area must be bordered so that gravel does not spill over and damage infrastructures. Deshe Kavua imports a wide variety of professional and decorative borders.
The American border is made of cast plastic and has a round head which gives it flexibility and durability. It is made using an advanced American manufacturing method and can be molded to a variety of geometrical shapes. The American border is installed at a depth of 10 -15 cm underground and creates maximum separation between the artificial lawn and the garden beds.
cutting knife for synthetic grass with a serrated blade. The knife allows precise cutting compared to a normal Japanese knife, and this is thanks to the serrated blade reminiscent of shark teeth, hence its name.
wacker plate is a vibratory plate compactor and the perfect tool for artificial grass installation. This tool known in the infrastructure and construction industry. The wacker plate allows us to tighten the gravel foundation and create a hard and smooth surface for the installation of the synthetic grass.
SUPER GREEN Glue
a single ingredient shock and high traffic resistant; the glue maintains its strength under humid conditions as well as extreme heat and cold temperatures. The artificial turfs are glued to each other by spreading the Super Green Glue on the PVC adhesive tape. Using this glue the artificial turfs can be glued directly to hard surfaces such as floors, concrete, asphalt, and wood surfaces. Spread a thin layer over the installation surface or the PVC adhesive tape and attach the artificial turfs to it.
The sesame gravel mix serves as a base bed for the installation of artificial turfs. The sesame gravel is used as a barrier between the ground and the turfs so that a sterile environment is created, to repel dirt and insects. The sesame gravel enables maximum water permeation, and can be used to create a slant to drain rain water
FAST FLOW Infrastructure
The Fast Flow draining infrastructure is the Perfect Solution for dealing with draining problems when installing artificial turfs on hard surfaces such as terraces, rooftops, concrete surfaces, and asphalt. This infrastructure enables rain water to quickly and efficiently flow towards the drains. The Fast Flow infrastructure is easily installed and is durable for many years.
