Seaming tape vs Nail

- Sep 21, 2018-


In a synthetic turf installation, it is important to consider which form of binding to use for certain types of jobs. For the large majority of landscape installations, many synthetic grass installers will use nails and staples as opposed to the sticky alternative, glue and seaming tape. When using nails and staples, the seams are easier to manipulate. However, certain scenarios require the alternative combination of seaming tape and glue:

  • Playground fields

  • Sports fields

Both of these will require seaming tape and glue in lieu of the potentially high activity that can occur on these surfaces. However, staples and nails are still required to fasten the outside edges of these surfaces.

Most technologically advanced synthetic grass products feature built-in U.V. inhibitors. These U.V. inhibitors are incorporated within the yarn process and will allow the yarn to hold color even in the most harsh and sunny conditions. The turf color is designed to last 10 to 15 years.
