Artificial Turf melts because most of the artificial turf is made of polyester material. Now some conditions make melting more likely than others.
One of the leading causes of plastic turf melting is the reflection created by highly efficient windows called Low E windows. While low-e windows are highly effective, not all low-e windows reject enough infrared and visible light to generate enough BTU strength to melt artificial turf, siding, patio furniture and polyester materials.
Low-E Window Styles
- Soft Coat Coat
- Double soft Coat
- Soft Triple Coat
- Tough Coat
These two types of variations have the lowest coefficient of solar heat gain and in turn, represent the greatest amount of energy when these coatings are present on the surface of the dual-pane windows.
The simplistic answer is Turf Shield Window Film; this is a non-intrusive, uncomplicated way to prevent Turf from melting. But this is not the only way to solve the melting of artificial turf. An awning can be installed, you can add solar screens, and this alternative can be costly, however. Or you can absolutely swap your windows.
