Window Film and Artificial Turf

Does window film prevent artificial turf from burning? Unfortunately, no. Artificial turf companies have their customers call us because they seem to think that window film is the answer. When installing turf you need to be aware of reflective surfaces in the area such as mirrors, barbecue grills and especially low-e windows. Window film is reflective. Its main purpose is to keep the heat out of your home so it reflects back out. Manufacturer’s make a ceramic film that has the same reflectivity as glass but the grass burns anyway. We have tried various products and we haven’t had great success. The best solution is a solar screen that will deflect the sun that is burning your grass.
