Southwest Greens of Atlanta, along with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated infill. The new pre-coated product adds to the success of HydroChill™ Home, an innovative cooling system released in October 2013. Designed to protect against the heat on artificial turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the lone solutions in the industry to result in significant and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will vary due to geographic location and local conditions such as humidity, wind fluctuations and cloud cover, HydroChill Home has accomplished 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a basic synthetic turf surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a synthetic lawn and, when charged by water, removes heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling effect of HydroChill Home after rainy weather or watering can persist for days depending on local conditions and is most effective 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 mixture is a natural advancement of our cooling technology innovation. It shows our dedication to continue to forward our products to meet and anticipate customer needs. Modern HydroChill projects include use at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV section aired in 2014.
