Artificial grass that changes colors with the seasons
HASSELT – Condor Grass introduces a groundbreaking world first with Colorshift technology. Years of research and extensive testing have led to a revolutionary type of artificial grass that reacts to outdoor temperatures and changes colors with the seasons. In doing so, the Hasselt-based company adds additional natural properties to artificial grass. Colorshift technology will be available from early 2024 and will be launched at the upcoming FSB show in Cologne.
Condor Grass spent ten years developing this innovative product. The initial brainstorming sessions began after receiving feedback from customers about the appearance of artificial grass. Unlike natural grass, artificial grass does not change color during the winter months. Condor Grass saw an opportunity to create an appearance that suits all seasons. Dozens of discussions with technicians and professors led to comprehensive tests conducted both domestically and internationally. While these tests provided Condor Grass with valuable information and insights, they did not yield a viable result at first.
Collaboration with TenCate
A significant breakthrough finally came in 2018. New tests conducted within and outside Europe resulted in a prototype. Condor Grass further developed this innovation in collaboration with TenCate Grass. This partnership laid the foundation for the groundbreaking Colorshift line, with 'Chameleon' being the first tangible product in 2022. The new generation of artificial grass has been extensively tested at multiple locations and under various conditions.
How it works
Artificial grass with Colorshift technology changes color based on heat. The outdoor temperature affects the shade of the product to match the current season. At temperatures up to 15 degrees Celsius, Colorshift maintains a dark green appearance. The color gradually transitions to light green between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius. At tropical temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius and above, the grass adopts a fresh, light green color. Initially, artificial grass with this revolutionary technology is available in two heights. Later, the innovation will be available in more qualities.
