When the summer heat is on, artificial grass will heat up more than natural grass and maintain a higher temperature.
As with decking or patios exposed to direct sunlight, fake turf temperature can rise quickly and will not have the natural cooling effect we may be used to from a real grass lawn. However, there are many steps you can take to make sure your artificial lawn is a safe and comfortable area for you and your family to enjoy all year round.
During a summer heatwave it is always advisable to seek shade during the mid-day sun, particularly if you’re vulnerable to the effects of heat. This is the time of day when your synthetic lawn will be at its highest temperature, so it’s important to avoid walking bare foot or allow pets or children to play on the fake turf without adequate protection.
While fake grass does not get as hot as sand or asphalt, Easigrass advises parents to keep toddlers on a rug to protect them and to ensure all children have light footwear when walking on the lawn. Pets should not be exposed to extreme heat as they can overheat, and it’s always important to remember that their paws are sensitive and vulnerable when walking on hot surfaces.
A popular brand throughout the world, Easigrass regularly installs artificial grass lawns in extremely hot countries, including the desert-scorching heat of Dubai. All Easigrass products meet the highest of safety standards and are UV protected and stabilised to withstand high temperatures.
