Southwest Greens Northern CA West, alongside parent company Shaw Industries, announces the introduction of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated infill. The new pre-coated product increases the success of HydroChill™ Home, an advanced cooling system started in October 2013. Made to resist the heat on artificial turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction product of its kind and one of the only solutions in the business to produce considerable and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will depend on geographic location and local factors such as humidity, wind fluctuations and cloud cover, HydroChill Home has been able to have 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a regular synthetic turf surface when checked by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a synthetic lawn and, when sprayed with water, eliminates heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling impact of HydroChill Home after rainy weather or watering can keep working for days depending on local conditions and is most dramatic when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most successful when the sun is closest to the earth’s surface leading to temperature differences of 50 degrees in real world, third party validated outdoor tests.
The new HydroChill formula is a natural advancement of our cooling technology innovation. It illustrates our dedication to continue to progress our products to meet and satisfy customer needs. Recent HydroChill projects are implemented at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV segment aired in 2014.
