High-quality synthetic lawns are not enough, we also provide professional and outstanding technical support, from grass lawn installation to maintenance.
1. Preparation Work
Before installation, our worker will do these following things. One, recheck the dimensions of your field and make sure it is corresponded with the design drawing. Two, exam the base and make sure it's leveling, hard and clean, and remove large stones or bricks, etc. Plus, if a fine base is not available, 1mm-5mm gravels or sharp sands will be applied.
2. Putting Rolls
Position rolls along one side of the installation area, roll out the turf to the desired length and trim. It is better to leave a little extra length while you trim the turf. When the turf is well spread on the field, recheck if the roll size and the roll number are right. After that, make sure the accessories, like adhesive tape, are enough for the installation.
3．Cutting and Trimming
The artificial surfaces can be joined with our special synthetic glue and adhesive tape.
When our turf is manufactured, an extra couple of inches of backing material are kept along the edge of the turf. This extension part runs the length of the turf roll on both sides after the last stitching row of yarn. Before seaming two pieces of turf together, you must remove the extra backing material with knife.
4. Position the Adhesive Tape
Installer should ensure the pile is running in the same direction. Trim approximately 2-3cm turf at each edge. Unroll the adhesive tape along the joint line on the base and ensures tough and firm bonding of each section.
Apply the special synthetic turf glue along each edge of the artificial turf backing approximately 4cm into the back of the surface in two lines. Fold over one side of the artificial grass onto the adhesive tape. Then start to fold over another side but ensuring no tufts of grass are crushed under the joint line and keeping the joint to bond tightly together. After the gluing work is finished, it's a good idea to lay bricks on the artificial surface in order for firm sticking.
The last step of installation is to fill sand into the root of synthetic grass. This process will help to increase the weight of and make it stable; and the other function is to help grass stand up. Continue brushing the sand until the blades are standing up and no visible sands are seen on the surface. For sports fields, rubber granule infill is a necessary process for protecting skins of players.
When you replace natural grass with artificial turf, you need learn about new maintenance methods that are different from natural grass. For natural grass, you have to stop using for several days or even more than one week for grass recovery.
