Southwest Greens of Fresno, alongside parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated filling. The new pre-coated product builds upon the success of HydroChill™ Home, an ingenious cooling system launched in October 2013. Created to resist the heat on synthetic turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the sole solutions in the industry to result in considerable and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will vary due to geographic location and local conditions such as cloud cover, humidity and wind fluctuations, HydroChill Home has achieved 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a regular artificial lawn surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a artificial turf and, when covered by water, pulls heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling impact of HydroChill Home after rainfall or watering can last days depending on local conditions and is most significant when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most successful when the sun is closest to the earth’s surface producing 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 demonstrates our devotion to continue to forward our products to meet and satisfy customer needs. NNew HydroChill projects are implemented at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV segment aired in 2014.
