Synthetic Turf International of Canada is excited to announce we are working with ThermaGreen Environmental to bring you a wider selection of products! ThermaGreen is a Canadian company based in Toronto, Ontario. This month, we are launching the SoftLawn® EZ Play turf.
This product is best suited for use in playgrounds and high traffic areas. This product is very dense at 87 oz/sq.yd and considered short with its 1 1/4″ height. When traffic and wear are a concern, a short, dense product is what you are looking for! This product is also a polyethylene/polypropylene yarn blend. Polypropylene is the stiffest yarn available, and provides a 0% water absorption rate. Polyethylene is the softest yarn available and also provides a 0% water absorption rate. As a result, the SoftLawn® EZ Play is not subject to expansion or contraction due to temperature or humidity.
SoftLawn® EZ Play contributes to the goals of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). ThermGreen’s Play product line meets the drainage and energy absorption properties under ASTMF1292 and ASTM F355A for HIC and Gmax ratings.
The STC (Synthetic Turf Council), which is the governing body for companies in North America, has set a quality control level for shed loss and tuft bind. This is the amount of pressure which can be applied before shed loss starts to happen. All North American products must meet a minimum standard of 6lb test for tuft bind. We are pleased to say our new SoftLawn® EZ Play has a 12lb tuft bind, doubling the minimum standards.
STI Canada strives to continually improve our selection of products to ensure our customers are receiving the best product available! We want our customers to find exactly what they need with us. The SoftLawn® EZ Play is a great new addition and we are excited to share this new addition with you!
