Artificial Turf / Synthetic Grass Products From “Frass” Fake Grass

(877) 553-7277 (FRASS)

Artificial turf grass / synthetic turf grass comes in an almost endless variety of choices.  If “Frass” doesn’t offer a type of artificial grass you like, then no one does, and you’re very hard to please!  They may all look like “green grass” to the untrained eye but as experts in the artificial turf business we see very distinct differences and can point them out to you. 

Synthetic turf grass is manufactured in so many different forms for several reasons.  One reason is to create a turf product that is visually appealing to everyone.  Since not all of us have the same opinion, artificial turf fibers come in many colors, shades, mixtures, textures, or if you will, ‘flavors.’  Just as they make Coke and Pepsi, Sprite and 7 Up, Bud Light and Miller Light, you get the picture – they make artificial turf to visually please just about anyone.  Besides the visual aspect, artificial turf grass must often also serve a specific purpose.  Sometimes function is more important than form.  For pets, for example, there are certain varieties of artificial turf that are better suited to the rough wear and tear that a dog can dish out (and drainage requirements) but they may not be your favorite looking varieties. 

Function over form is sometimes the rule.  Another example might be for playground artificial turf.  In this application you might consider a thinner and less expensive artificial grass product and spend the savings on an underlying shock pad for safety.  Artificial turf products are similar to carpet in many ways.  Synthetic turf products are rated by what is called “face weight.”  Artificial turf “face weight” refers to the weight of artificial grass fibers (not including the turf backing) per square yard of an artificial turf grass product.  “Frass” sells and installs the most realistic, plush, synthetic turf lawn products on the market.

Artificial Turf # 1 – “Frass” Natural Blend

Artificial Turf Synthetic Grass

 
This is a 40 oz. face weight per square yard artificial turf grass product. Pile height is 1.75” tall. This turf variety has a multi-colored brown thatch fiber mixture to give a more realistic look. Turf fibers are made of 100% polyethylene – both the tall fibers and the thatch layer (turf thatch is the shorter, curly fibers that help stabilize the taller fibers and reduce the need for infill such as rubber, silica sand, or acrylic coated sand). The blades of this polyethylene thatch layer are thicker than most artificial turf with nylon thatch.  This artificial turf product is composed of two different monofilament polyethylene fibers.  The tall monofilament fibers which are mostly what you see when this artificial grass is put down, is a 9,000 denier 6 ended monofilament.  The thatch layer which are the shorter curly fibers is contrructed of 7,500 denier TEXTURIZED monofilament polyethlyene.  Artificial turf products numbered one, two, and three here are engineered for climates where an almost constant barrage of sunshine and UV rays require additional UV stability.  These fibers are tufted into a two layer backing.  The first and primary backing layer is a 13 pic polybac and the second backing layer is a 20 oz. urethane coating.  Both have standard perforations for drainage and are rated to drain approximately 30 gallons of water per square yard per hour.

Artificial Turf # 7 – “Frass” – Zoysia

Artificial Turf Synthetic Grass

This artificial turf grass variety is manufactured to replicate the looks of the real grass variety called ‘Zoysia.’ The blades of grass, or turf fibers in this variety are very fine. They look like the ‘fancy’ grasses that many people are familiar with. This artificial turf grass variety comes in a 45 oz. face weight or a 65 oz. face weight (pictured is 65 oz.) This product is one of the very few on the market which requires absolutely no (0) infill!!

Artificial Turf # 8 – “Frass” – Nylon Putting Green

Artificial Turf Synthetic Grass

For chipping from larger distances, we recommend our taller variety. This product has a 36 oz. face weight per square yard but shouldn’t be compared with artificial turf grass lawn or putting green fringe turf grass varieties. This very dense aritficial turf putting green product is 7/16” tall.  The fibers in this product are 4,200 denier 8-ended texturized nylon having 2 layers of 13 pic polybac as the primary backing and a rubberized secondary backing with action bac.  Available only in this pictured color (verde green).
