Artificial Artisans is known throughout the industry for only offering the highest quality artificial turf and “ivy products” for both residential and commercial applications. We appreciate the challenges that our customers face in making an educated decision when it comes to choosing their artificial turf. To help assist our customers, we created a turf terminology guide to help them better understand the nuances of our Artisan products.
PILE HEIGHT: Pile height refers to the average height of individual turf yarn measured from the tip of the fiber to the backing material. All artificial turf resembles carpeting, and resultingly, high traffic areas tend to lie down over a period of time. Turf may be “broomed” to reduce and combat this matting effect, however, all turf will be affected by matting to a varying degree.
YARN PROFILE: Yarn profile refers to how the turf is extruded. Artisan Turf offers 4 different profiles.
Diamond Shape Turf
Diamond grass blade shape is designed to create a soft luxurious feel while emulating a natural grass blade appearance. The grass blade is soft to the touch and yet can still withstand foot traffic. Many common applications for this turf blade shape are front lawns or any landscape that experiences low to medium foot traffic.
C Shape Turf
The C-shaped blade gives the turf a natural look and helps the synthetic grass feel soft to the touch. This blade shape can be applied on any installation, however, it is most commonly found on residential and commercial property landscapes.
S Shape Turf
This featured synthetic grass blade is uniquely shaped for a realistic appearance as well as added durability. The‘S’ blade is perfect for any landscape that experiences medium to heavy foot traffic.
FACE WEIGHT: Face weight refers to the quantity (in ounces) of yarn in a square yard. The higher the face weight, the more dense and plush the turf feels and appears.
YARN TYPE: Yarn type refers to the types of materials that make up the yarn, or fibers, in our artificial turf products. Artificial Artisans currently manufacturers top quality nylon, polypropylene and polyethylene yarn to use in it’s products. Our current product line has turf products that are 100% nylon, 100% polyethylene, 100% polypropylene, polypropylene/polyethylene blended and nylon/polypropylene blended.
YARN COLOR: Yarn color refers to the different categories and shades of color that comprise the Artificial Artisans turf products. Currently our color palette includes CITRUS, a lime green color as well as AVOCADO, a shade of olive green.
* All Artificial Artisans turf products have been named specifically to help know what you are looking at. Each name includes: YARN PROFILE | YARN COLOR | FACE WEIGHT. An example of this would be our Contemporary Citrus 50 product which when using our formula would represent a C-Shaped (Contemporary) | Lime Green (Citrus) | 50 oz. face weight yarn (50).
