At interfloor, we have all the accessories you need for a first-rate synthetic turf installation. Our top quality artificial grass adhesives, fixing pins and joining tapes are ideal for your artificial grass installation.
Our solvent-free artificial grass adhesive cartridge is ideal for joining pieces of artificial grass. To be used alongside joining tape, the quick curing adhesive has a high bonding strength. It’s waterproof and weatherproof, making it ideal for use indoors and outdoors.
Our galvanised steel artificial grass fixing pins are ideal for securing artificial grass on soft surfaces, and they’re coloured green to blend in with the fake turf.
Fix down the edges of the fake grass, spacing the u-pins around 200mm away from each other to avoid lifting and ruffle the pile to disguise them.
Joining tape is perfect for use with adhesive. Joining tape is used alongside adhesive to join two pieces of artificial grass.
At interfloor, our artificial grass joining tape prevents moisture ingress from the base and has a strong rot-proof bonding medium. It also has a sealed base to prevent adhesive penetrating to base.
You need to measure the surface which you would like to cover with artificial grass. This way, you’ll be able to accurately decide how much artificial grass, underlay and accessories you will need. This helps reduce wastage.
Remove any existing grass and ensure the ground surface is solid, smooth and stable as uneven or loose ground will affect the way your artificial grass looks and feels.
Covering the base with a layer of sand around 7.5cm thick helps you to create a smooth and level surface. This enables you to achieve a more aesthetic artificial grass installation.
A geotextile fabric layer prevents weed growth and protects your turf from damage. It’s definitely worth installing one as it will extend the lifespan of your artificial grass.
The next step is to roll out the artificial grass on the surface. Try to roll it in a way that requires minimal cutting to save yourself time and materials and make sure the piles face the same direction. Then, leave the grass for 24 hours for the creases to fall out.
After 24 house, stretch and fix the artificial grass in place with fixing pins to ensure it’s flat and smooth.
Carefully measure your artificial grass and then cut it, so it fits perfectly to the size of your surface. Take your time with this bit, as it’s hard to fix if it goes wrong.
Cut the manufacturing strip off the edge of the turf (if it has one) and position the pieces of turf, so they are just touching.
Then, pull back the edges of the pieces of turf and position your joining tape in between. Make sure the edges of the turf meet in the centre of it (rough side up).
The next step is to apply the adhesive in a zig-zag motion and press the turf down into it. Finally, weight the seams to ensure the glue dries strong.
Take care with this step to ensure a neat finish and a less visible seam.
The final step is to lay sand onto the turf. Sand helps weigh it down, so it stays in place better. This means less chance of wrinkles or folds developing.
As well as this, the sand surrounds the base of the grass and helps the blades remain upright. Another benefit of sand is that it enhances the flame-resistant properties of the turf.
Make sure to apply the sand in layers and against the lay of the pile for the best results.
