Green all over
This is our green story on synthetic lawns. Now more than ever we ALL need to be more environmentally conscious of the products we use. SYNLawn® goes the extra mile to provide you with the best.
SYNLawn® is green on top, in the middle and even underneath. Beyond the color, SYNLawn® goes a long way towards better environmental sustainability which makes it truly “green.” We take measurable steps in providing products that have an extended lifespan, reduce your carbon footprint, conserve water, and use renewable and recycled materials in manufacturing.
Thanks to our exclusive EnviroLoc™ Backing System, SYNLawn’s backing is approximately 60-70% green by weight. The EnviroLoc System is an engineered component system which contributes to environmental sustainability. The first component is the primary backing which helps extend the product life cycle by using 10% less material that is stronger and has superior dimensional stability compared to traditional artificial grasses. Product lifespan is further extended on the face by incorporating nylon 6 in the fibers adding up to 50% longer life. The second component is the secondary backing which incorporates BioCel™ technology. BioCel uses an environmentally-sensitive polyurethane that replaces a large portion of the petroleum-based polymers with soybean oil (renewable resources) and adds Celceram™ (recycled product of coal combustion) for further strength and stability.
These technologies help environmentally conscience builders and specifiers with LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) project certification. Using SYNLawn® with EnviroLoc™ can contribute LEED points in the areas of Water Efficient Landscaping, Recycled Content, Rapidly Renewable Material and Innovation in Design.
