Southwest Greens Charlotte, alongside parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated infill. The new pre-coated product increases the success of HydroChill™ Home, an ingenious cooling system released in October 2013. Designed to protect against the heat on artificial lawn and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the lone solutions in the industry to lead to substantial and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will vary due to geographic location and local weather such as cloud cover, humidity and wind fluctuations, HydroChill Home has been able to have 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a standard synthetic turf surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a artificial turf and, when covered by water, eliminates heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling result of HydroChill Home after rain or watering can persist for days depending on local conditions and is most dramatic when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most effective 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 mixture is a natural succession of our cooling technology innovation. It shows our devotion to continue to advance our products to meet and satisfy customer needs. NNew HydroChill projects include use at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV segment aired in 2014.
