Artificial Grass Protection
The use of artificial grass has been steadily increasing across the United States. According to a report by the Synthetic Turf Council, the growth rate has been of approximately 15-20% per year, making Florida one of the top states for synthetic turf with about 10.6 million square feet of artificial turf installed.
The popularity of artificial grass in Orlando and surrounding areas has been influenced by factors such as water conservation initiatives, climate patterns, and the availability of low-maintenance landscaping options.
Due to the hot and humid climate in the area, maintaining a natural grass lawn can be challenging as it requires a lot of water and maintenance to keep it looking healthy. Artificial grass, on the other hand, requires minimal maintenance and can withstand the high temperatures and heavy rainfall that are common in the Orlando area. It doesn’t require watering, mowing, or fertilizing, which can save homeowners time and money in the long term.

The problem with artificial grass
Despite being a great option for residential buildings in Orlando, artificial grass can still suffer from damage due to the intense heat created by reflected sunlight from windows. That effect is exacerbated by the use of double-glazed windows, more and more common in new buildings to fulfill the requirements of the new building codes.
New building codes in Orlando, Florida require more energy-efficient windows for constructions. This is why many builders are choosing to install double-pane windows, which feature two panes of glass separated by a layer of insulating gas.
Double-pane windows offer better insulation than single-pane windows, which can help to reduce energy costs and improve indoor comfort. Additionally, they are also installing low-E coatings on their windows, which can further improve their energy efficiency by reducing the amount of heat that is transmitted through the glass.
Low-E coatings are typically made of a thin layer of metallic particles or other materials that reflect infrared radiation, which helps to keep a building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Such coatings can potentially cause damage to artificial grass because they can reflect a higher percentage of the sun’s rays onto nearby surfaces, including artificial grass. The reflected heat can cause the temperature of the grass to rise significantly leading to melting or discoloration of the artificial grass fibers.

We have the solution
You can prevent damage to artificial grass from reflected heat caused by high-efficient windows by installing exterior window tints which help reduce the amount of sunlight that reflects onto the grass.
Tint Xperts uses special films that can help reduce the temperature of the reflected light and prevent damage to artificial grass. By tinting your windows, we can minimize the amount of heat that is reflected onto your turf, helping to maintain its appearance and health.
Our clear, undetectable films work by reducing the reflectivity of your windows, which in turn decreases the amount of glare and heat that is reflected back onto your grass. This means less reflectivity, less glare, and less temperature, which means no more melting grass.
Our products are completely clear and won’t obstruct your view like other products in the market, which may have patterns or lines that detract from the overall look of your windows.
Other benefits of window tinting
By blocking out some of the sun’s UV rays and reducing the amount of heat that is absorbed by the turf, you can lower cooling costs and reduce the amount of energy needed to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Our window tint solutions will help you get heat control and regulate cool temperature inside your residential building in Orlando, Florida.
In summer, residential windows let in too much sun’s heat, while winters can be cold if you have bare glass as the only protection in your building. Our window films can insulate your home windows against excessive heat while allowing the entrance of natural light and the opportunity to enjoy the views. You can reduce up to 78% of the sun’s heat that comes through your windows with the installation of a tinting solution.
The use of window film for heat and glare reduction is the most affordable way to increase your family comfort indoors. And as this was not enough, the film is a great solution to make the space more energy efficient. You will notice the difference when the energy bill comes!
