How Artificial Turf Helps With Allergies

Certain seasons of the year, typically lovely seasons, are made much less lovely because of allergens associated with them. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 20 million people experience grass allergies from continuous exposure to allergens. Grass allergies can occur in different forms — from skin irritation to nasal issues to asthma attacks.

360 Sports & Syngrass provides a variety of synthetic landscaping and sports surfacing services across New England and Southwest Florida. One such service is the installation of an artificial turf.

 

This blog entry highlights the connection between artificial turf and reduced allergic reactions.

What are allergies?

artificial turf and reduced allergic reactionsAllergies, or allergic reactions, are what occur after your body has been exposed to an allergen. Allergic reactions are hypersensitive reactions of the body and when the body encounters certain materials, it reacts to them. The allergens that can result in allergic reactions vary and depend on several factors, and because allergic reactions are spontaneous in an encounter with the trigger, it is important to prevent such triggers. Across the world, allergies are major health concerns, and millions suffer from different forms of allergic reactions – from mild to those that can be life-threatening. Depending on one’s immune system, a lot of things can become allergies, but the allergens that cause the most common types of allergic reactions include pollen and dust.

 

How allergic reactions occur

 

When the body is exposed to a substance that spurs an allergic reaction, in most cases, it doesn’t react immediately. This is because the body builds up sensitivity to that material before it eventually reacts. The period of building sensitivity to an allergen differs. This period differs according to the immune system and may take years. Sometimes, the process of building up sensitivity to an allergen is never completed, and such people never experience full allergic reactions. Allergies could also be seasonal, depending on whether the allergens are associated with specific seasons.

 

Immunoglobulin E are “antibodies produced by the immune system. If you have an allergy, your immune system overreacts to an allergen by producing antibodies called Immunoglobulin E. These antibodies travel to cells that release chemicals, causing an allergic reaction.” Allergic reactions occur in different tissues and systems, and can manifest in different ways.

 

 

Symptoms of allergic reactions

 

In the skin, for example, allergic reactions could manifest through itching, peeling, rashes, and flaking. In the nasopharyngeal system, for allergens that are inhaled, the forms of manifestation include a blocked nasal cavity, runny nose, and swollen eyes. Allergic reactions can also occur when one is stung by certain insects, and such allergic reactions manifest in the form of coughs, dizziness, swelling, and other symptoms. The milder symptoms typically stop after a short period of time.

There are different ways of managing allergic reactions. The most effective way of avoiding allergic reactions is avoiding the trigger, but if it’s too late for that, medications exist. These medications mitigate the way the body reacts on exposure to allergens. Nasal steroids, for example, reduce nasal congestion. Immunotherapy, the prevention or treatment of disease with substances that stimulate the immune response, is another way of managing allergies.

How artificial turf helps to manage allergies

artificial turf helps to manage allergiesAs established earlier, the best way to prevent an allergy is to stay away from the allergen altogether. However, there are circumstances that are beyond one’s control, and it is essential to implement ways of reducing exposure to allergens. Natural grass is associated with several allergies and people continually exposed to natural grass are at a risk of becoming exposed to the allergens associated with such grass.

Artificial turf is a fantastic way of reducing your level of exposure to allergens. Artificial grass does not hold onto pollen as natural grass does, so it’s clear why that would reduce one’s allergies.

 

Apart from humans, an artificial turf also protects pets from allergic reactions. Pets love to play in grass and they also develop allergies from pollen and other allergens. With artificial turf, just as with humans, this level of exposure to allergens is significantly reduced.

On Newer Developments for Synthetic and Artificial Turf

When most people think about artificial turf, they usually think about old-style turf often used on athletic fields, which never looked or felt like real grass. Modern synthetic grass options now both look and feel like natural grass, with the advantages of not needing water and only needing minimal maintenance — while still looking beautiful and natural.

Modern synthetic grass is more environmentally friendly than ever, not just because of the ability to conserve water, but because modern technology has allowed us to make a more environmentally-friendly product that doesn’t emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds) or toxic chemicals. One of the coolest innovations with modern synthetic turf is you can now design your play surface using a variety of colors and options.

This means you can have the field of your dreams without having to worry about the regular maintenance and repairs that are necessary with natural sod and grass. We can ensure you not only have the right kind of synthetic turf for your needs, but that it’s installed correctly — thereby eliminating drainage or flooding problems that can occur when artificial turf is not properly installed. Our professionals will make sure you order the correct amount of materials the first time, so your turf can be installed on time with no budgeting surprises.

Some pet owners have traditionally stayed away from synthetic grass because older artificial grass applications trapped pet waste, causing odors and staining of the turf. Newer synthetic installations use a specially designed backing to allow for pet waste to disperse and, when combined with proper installation techniques, allow for drainage and waste neutralization.

All you need to do is pick up solid pet waste and hose down your turf on a regular basis and that is it. You don’t have to worry about brown spots or the erosion of high traffic areas, and you also don’t have to worry about pesticides and pest control that can be harmful to your furry family members. This makes artificial turf ideal for your beloved pets.

The newest artificial grass options can also provide erosion control, which is important in sensitive areas and can help you to create a natural look, even in areas where it is difficult to maintain a natural lawn. Because of the ability to add superior drainage options under an artificial surface, which you would not be able to do under natural grass, you can solve flooding and drainage issues in problem areas where it has been traditionally difficult to grow or maintain grass. A synthetic lawn or sports playing surface can be the ultimate solution in areas where, due to droughts or flooding conditions, natural grass is not practical.

 

Moreover, mixing synthetic grass with natural landscaping gives you more options than ever before — allowing you to add shade through trees and other plants, and still reduce the amount of maintenance required. With a quality synthetic lawn, it is almost impossible to tell that the lawn is not natural until you touch it. Due to watering and environmental concerns, more HOAs are allowing synthetic lawns. If your HOA (homeowner association) has rules against a synthetic lawn installment, we can provide you with information and pictures of recent applications installed by 360 Sports Systems, and in many cases, HOAs will change their rules once you demonstrate that your lawn will meet all of the same aesthetics as a natural lawn.

 

You can also, easily and quickly, cool artificial turf down by watering it and installing shade over play areas and other areas where you want to control the temperature of your synthetic lawn.

 

Though you can head over to your local do-it-yourself store to purchase synthetic grass, often these stores do not carry the higher quality options that look the most natural and are designed for pets and other specialty applications. To get the best looking artificial lawn, a professional install will make all of the difference. Incorrectly installed synthetic lawns can have issues with drainage, slime, and mold. As such, these installations often do not last as long as a professional installation, requiring you to replace the turf long before you should have to. In the short term, doing it yourself might save you some money, but in the long term you will absolutely see savings with a professional job.

 

360 Sports Systems can take care of the planning, measuring, and installation for your synthetic needs. We will help you with every step of the process and even provide you with samples, so you can see and feel the texture. We will show you all of our options and customize it to your desires and we will make sure the right drainage is appropriate for your specific needs, so you never have a mushy, moldy, or slimy lawn.

 

At 360 Sports Systems, we will help you find the right synthetic grass that will give you both the function and look you want. Let’s chat today!

Basketball Court Construction BY 360 Sports System & Syngrass

That old basketball court has seen better days. The Massachusetts weather, with frozen winters and hot summers, has finally made the court cracked and unplayable. The estimates you’ve gotten seem really expensive. Especially for work that will have to be repeated in another ten years. There has to be a better way. Perhaps it’s time to give 360 Sports a call.

If you are looking for a durable, colorfast, and forgiving basketball court, 360 Sports Basketball Courts are just what you’re looking for. Our basketball courts offer a number of advantages over traditional asphalt and concrete courts.

Professional Installation Over Your Old Court – To begin with, your new basketball court can be installed over the old surface. Our system of interlocking tiles provides a sturdy, safe surface. Underneath the tile’s surface is a cushioned, shock-saving, system of grids. When fully installed, your court will give you the same feel as a hard surface court. There are no dead spots. In addition, the surface drains quickly after precipitation, allowing for quicker play. The court’s surface also reflects more of the sun’s heat, making for cooler play on hot days. The benefits don’t end there.

A Safer, More Forgiving Surface – A major drawback to concrete and asphalt court construction is a greater risk of injury. With our cushioned basketball court, an athlete can be assured that they’re playing on a court that won’t contribute to injuries. The cushioned surface reacts with more give for cutting and sudden stops. Concussions and head injuries become less of a risk as well.

Now that you’re familiar with the ease of installation and safety our court provides, let’s look at the design advantages.

Fully Customized Courts – Because of the nature of our court’s construction, it is possible to design your court to exactly fit your desires. Of course, a big favorite for Massachusetts courts is the old Boston Garden design. You can do it, and without the dead spots of the old floor! If the Celtics aren’t your team, we offer a wide selection of colors, logos, and options, for your court design.

We will be with you every step of the way when you choose a 360 Sports Basketball Court. From design, to management, and installation, we stand by our product. Your new court comes with a 15-year warranty. The actual life expectancy for our basketball courts is between 25 – 30 years. That’s roughly twice the lifespan of a concrete or asphalt court.

If you’re ready for the ultimate basketball court, contact us at 360 Sports.

SYNTHETIC TENNIS COURT BY 360 SPORTS SYSTEM

The weather is finally nice enough to get outside for a few games of tennis, but when you get to the park, the courts are closed from rain much earlier in the day. You’re forced to either find somewhere else to play, or forego your game for a bit longer.

A synthetic tennis court, though, offers much greater flexibility for games, allowing you to play in a wider variety of weather conditions. These courts are extremely durable products that not only last far longer than cement and asphalt, but also offer amazing benefits.

  • Better health for users: We use three-quarter inch shock-absorbing tiles that have both lateral and vertical give, something not found in traditional asphalt or cement. The tiles will reduce fatigue and have a certain level of bounce that increases jumping and turning safety, helping to alleviate joint stress and long-term pain.
  • Long-lasting: Especially when you reside in areas with drastic weather changes, tennis courts can undergo higher levels of damage; cement frequently cracks because of this, and needs to be regularly resurfaced. Synthetic tennis courts, on the other hand, are very low-maintenance and can handle strong weather systems. The polypropylene tiles were made for outdoor environments, with UV inhibitors that protect the color. Additionally, the tiles have been brittle tested to minus 25 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Personalize your play: Unlike traditional tennis courts, which only have one option for layout or color, the 360 Sports & SynGrass courts are fully customizable. Whether you want a strict tennis court, or want to develop a multi-sport activity court that can include your logo or emblem.

While most synthetic tennis courts are built on a concrete and rebar base, we also can place the court tile on a compacted stone surface, which includes a recycled rubber underlayment. You’ll be able to talk with designers and specialists every step of the way, as our turnkey approach means you’ll get the court of your dreams without any hassle or red tape.

When you work with 360 Sports & SynGrass, well start by clearing, leveling and compacting the area and building your base, after getting all of the necessary permits and approvals. After setting concrete forms, the tiles are put in place, and once everything has set, the netting is installed.

Give us a call today to learn how you can take advantage of the rest of summer with your own synthetic tennis court.
