What is the Face Weight of Synthetic Turf?
Answered Oct 24, 2018 11:06 AM
The face weight (or pile weight) is the weight of the turf pile per square yard measured in ounces. It should not be confused with the total weight as it includes the weight of the backing. Face weight is used to determine the turf durability.
The heavier the better, I guess.
We went with the most dense options, I think it worth it.
I like the tall dense turf!
I think the face weight is a term for carpet, and turf people use it as well, must be made the same way as carpet.
I have 84 oz face weight, and I am happy with it.
We chose the heaviest turf on the market: 94 oz!
To simply understand this, there are four components of turf: straight fibers, thatch (curled fibers), primary backing and glue. The face weight is the weight of both straight and curled fibers per square yard.
The Pet Turf is very short, but still at about 50 oz face weight which is a decent confirmation.

Face weight is one of the main technical reference for "how much materials used in the turf" putting it into a plain understandable term.
