Southwest Greens of Michigan, 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 ingenious cooling system released in October 2013. Designed to combat the heat on artificial lawn and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the only solutions on the market to lead to substantial 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 been able to have 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a basic synthetic turf surface when checked by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a synthetic lawn and, when covered by water, eliminates heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling result of HydroChill Home after rainy weather or watering can keep working for days depending on local conditions and is most effective when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most impactful 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 formula is a natural progression of our cooling technology innovation. It shows our dedication to continue to forward our products to meet and exceed customer needs. NNew HydroChill projects include use at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV section aired in 2014.
