Why Does Artificial Turf Melt?
Artificial turf technology can weather the elements, but projecting the sun off the home windows can also produce a magnification that is so strong that it can create a beam of light that damages and burns the turf. There are a variety of methods that protect artificial turf from melting:
- Apply turf shield window tints
- Installation of solar screens
- Replace windows
Low E windows are substrates with low emissivity. All this means is that there's a coating on the windows that serves as an insulation. This is actually a good thing because low E coatings keep your home windows cool during the summer by reflecting energy away and preventing heat from coming in.
During the winter months the same coating keeps your home warm by not allowing heat to escape. The opposite and unintended effect of having low e-windows is that in some cases, these same windows can cause the turf to melt when the sun's rays reflect on the turf.
