Jason Hiscocks is an experienced supplier and installer of Namgrass, one of the worlds best quality manufacturers of Artificial Grass and far superior to many alternatives on the market. With our experience, you can rest assured that you’ll be buying an artificial grass product of unrivalled quality. Here’s why:
1) Latex backing
The backing of any artificial grass is the most important structural element to look at when comparing products. This is where the quality and durability of any product lies.
At a glance the two samples on the right figure 1 look quite similar. But their backs figure 2 tell a different story.
Our Green Oasis has a superior, heavy duty latex backing. Our competitor’s product has hardly any latex present at all, so the stability of this grass over a long period is questionable.
2) Stitch rates and stitch quality
Namgrass uses a unique pile anchorage system called Tuftlock. The closer, denser stitch rates give the grass more structural density.
Figure 3 shows Namgrass Green Meadow, and a well-known UK competitor’s sample.
The difference between the stitch rates is clear; the neat Namgrass stitches sitting flush with the backing, and our competitor’s tufts protruding and somewhat ragged. This is a cheaper way of producing grass, but one that gives a shorter life span to the product.
3) Materials used in the production process
There are three main groups of material used in the production of artificial grass.
Polypropylene is the least expensive and great for sports products, but for high-end domestic grass it can be too coarse unless balanced correctly with Polyethylene, which is a more expensive material that produces soft grass products but not ideal when used alone. Polyamide (nylon) is the most expensive material, producing a strong, resilient grass fibre/filament.
Namgrass integrate high quality polyethylene (long fibres) with polypropylene yarns (curled thatch), as seen in our Green Bliss, Fusion, Mirage, Oasis and Meadow products. We also offer a uniquely constructed product with our Green Touch, offering the high resilience of Polyamides (nylon) with the softness and realism of Polyethylene.
