Southwest Greens of Asheville, along with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the launch of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated filling. The new pre-coated product adds to the success of HydroChill™ Home, an innovative cooling system started in October 2013. Made to protect against the heat on artificial turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction technology of its kind and one of the lone solutions in the industry to produce substantial 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 achieved 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a basic synthetic lawn surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a artificial lawn and, when charged by water, eliminates heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling impact of HydroChill Home after rain or watering can persist for days depending on local conditions and is most significant when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most impactful when the sun is closest to the earth’s surface resulting in temperature differences of 50 degrees in real world, third party validated outdoor tests.
The new HydroChill formulation is a natural progression of our cooling technology innovation. It demonstrates our dedication to continue to progress our products to meet and exceed customer needs. Recent HydroChill projects are implemented at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV segment aired in 2014.
