According to the type of application, artificial grass can be divided into:

  • Loose coating. It is the most durable type of products. Green fibres are covered with quartz and hard granulate. The grass blades are too hard for playgrounds or other public places, but this is a great option for sports stadiums, for example, a football field.
  • Half-loose coating. It is characterized by elasticity. They are used for children’s playgrounds, sports grounds or recreation areas. The grass fibres are covered with fine granular quartz, which gives strength to the lawn.
  • Non loose coating. The appearance of this lawn is no different from real grass. It is used for exhibitions or interior decoration, as the fibres are soft, they press against the ground at the slightest pressure.

According to the fibre structure, artificial grass is divided into 2 types:

  • Fibrillated (includes wide fibres with incisions and has a mesh structure);
  • Monofilamentary (whole fibres, made by extrusion).

By the way, there is coloured artificial grass.
