Not regular sand. Silica Sand!

Silica Sand Infill for Artificial Grass is specifically designed infill for artificial turf. It is easy to find and install this type of infill, making it popular for low-traffic areas that don’t take for beating, like a patio or a balcony, or unused areas of grass.

The Natural Color Sand is used as in infill for your synthetic grass. It is designed to be brushed evenly into the lawn in order to keep grass blades upright, and to weigh down the surface. Providing cushioning and increased longevity, it supports grass fibres.

Benefits of Silica Sand Fill

Sand infill for artificial grass absorbs shock, deters bacteria, and provides the same durability as crumb rubber, making it a great solution for playgrounds, pet areas, and yards.

Natural grass blades stand upright because their roots dig deep into the soil. This is what makes them stand up straight and remain stable even when pressure is applied. For this same effect, artificial turf requires infill, which is often either a type of sand or rubber, which gives it shape, stability, and uniformity. Silica sand infill surrounds the long blades of artificial grass and turly gives artificial turf the support and stability it requires to make it maintain the appearance of real grass.

Another function of silica sand infill is to weigh down the artificial grass. The extra weight means that the grass stays in place and doesn’t need to be fixed in any other way. As a result, no wrinkles or folds develop through use.

An additional benefit of filling with sand is that it helps make the grass more fire resistant, for example in case the barbecue is knocked over onto the grass.

Your artificial lawn will really be more attractive with sand fill. Not only does sand help the fibers stand up straighter, but by brushing in the sand, the fibers come to stand in different positions, which looks more natural. This benefit becomes more obvious over time. It slows the process of your lawn becoming flattened through walking.

What Size Silica Sand for Artificial Turf?

Generally, the silica sand granulation depend on the density of the synthetic grass, when the grass is quite dense ( more than 45000 stitches) we have to use the smaller granulation ( 0,5-0,7 mm) so that the sand can be placed into the grass pile – when the grass is very dense, the sand cannot be placed inside In case of lower density ( soccer – around 10 000 stitches), you can easily install the bigger granulation, but never higher than 1,5 mm ( even though some companies install even bigger – but it is not according to any standards or international requests).

Common sizes of silica sand for tennis and football artificial turf:

  1. Tennis: sand 0,4-0,8 mm (should not exceed 1,00 mm in any case).
  2. Football: 0,5-1,25 mm (should not exceed 1,50 mm in any case).

Common sizes of silica sand for filling beach volleyball:

Silica Sand for beach volley, normally here simply use the Sand from the beach on seaside (I suppose that should be the same granulation as for football synthetic grass).
