We keep our kiln dried sand in a heated indoor shed, so itis always clean and dry. ACI kiln dried sand, used to be known as Granusil or silica sand, is used to maintain synthetic grass in top condition. It is an infill dried sand for all types of synthetic grass, synthetic lawns and astroturf. It's also used as foundry sand and as a fine aggregate in mortar and concrete.
Grain chutes allow your ACI sand to be poured straight into your wheelbarrow, reducing the risk of contamination, as well as manual labour. For any tipped delivery of ACI, ask our staff for your delivery truck to be equipped with a grain chute.
Q:Why do I need kiln dried sand for my synthetic grass?
A:Kiln dried sand serves multiple purposes for artificial turf. It weighs the turf down, keeping it flat and also prevents the turf from bubbling up and rippling due to expansion on hot days. It protects the turf, so it will last longer, and also helps the individual blades of grass stand up, so your turf looks good.
Q: Can I use regular sand?
A: Regular sand doesn't work well with synthetic grass. Kiln dried sand is so clean that weeds can't grow in it, it doesn't absorb water (so your turf dries faster after rain) and it's heavy (your sand won't blow away).
Q: How much ACI sand do I need for my synthetic turf?
A: This varies depending on the application. For example, setting up a new tennis court you would need around 12-13 tonnes of ACI, but for topping up an existing court, 1-2 tonnes would beneeded. Call us on 8543 3401 and our team can help with quantities.
