TenCate Grass, the leader in components for synthetic turf systems, will make heat-reflective (HR) performance standard on all TenCate XP Blade™ produced for the U.S. market. TenCate XP Blade™ now offers heat reduction on warm, sunny days.
The decision to provide HR as a standard feature of TenCate XP Blade™ was made in response to sharp industry demand for temperature-reducing synthetic turf products. TenCate offers this heat-reducing aspect of the product without any additional cost.
It is widely known that temperatures can become elevated on synthetic turf surfaces on warm, sunny days. TenCate Grass set out to improve the comfort level of synthetic turf users by reducing the amount of heat that can be absorbed by the turf blades. In laboratory tests, TenCate XP Blade™ with HR technology has shown temperature reduction of 17.5 degrees Fahrenheit.
TenCate XP Blade™ has been installed on more than 3,500 synthetic turf projects around the world.
TenCate Grass develops and produces synthetic turf components and designs systems for sports, recreation and landscape applications. TenCate Grass has production facilities in Europe, the Middle East and North America.
