What is the Gauge of Synthetic Turf?

1 Answer

Gauge is the distance between the yarns of synthetic turf. Technically, it indicates the number of needles per inch across the width of the tufting machine. Gauge is referred to density. The higher this number, the denser the grass.

From just the surface appearance, people can't tell any difference from the different gauges: it is more of manufacturing technical reference.

For commercial projects, such technical specs for turf become very necessary.
