PASSENGER AMENITIES 20 airportbusiness October 2016 By Donna Kent Consider this: a surface that provides the look and feel of natural grass, but can withstand the heavy traffic of the busiest travel center and can be used indoors. That's what today's synthetic turf provides. Now airport designers and administrators are no longer limited to tra- ditional indoor surfaces. Synthetic turf gives airports the opportunity to expand their inte- rior design conventions, and bring the outdoors inside the terminal. HOW REALISTIC IS IT? Some of the products available today are so lush and realistic that people have to bend down to touch the grass to see if it's real or synthetic. Imagine having a beautiful grass lawn inside the airport terminal, where travelers can forget M any airports have become famil- iar with synthetic turf while constructing pet relief areas to meet requirements of the Service Animal Relief Act that took effect on Aug. 4. What airport admin- istrators may not realize, however, is the limit- less potential that artificial grass has to create a multitude of deluxe services throughout airports, both indoors and out.
