Expanded Polystyrene Used to Create Synthetic Turf Lawn

The National Building Museum in Washington, DC had 4 days to set up an exhibit called 2019 Summer Block Party. Lawn, a part of the exhibit, was an immersive installation taking up the Museum’s Great Hall.

Universal Foam Products worked with the museum to design large ridges made from 1.8 lb density EPS and running the width of the exhibit to replicate a contoured sloped lawn. The staff had 4 days to close the museum and install the new exhibit. Preplanning the bump layout and installation method alongside their design team quickened the installation. A double sided removable tape manufactured by Incrediseal was used to hold the EPS in place. Synthetic turf was the final finish.

“Universal Foam Products was our Geofoam supplier for a stadium seating project in New Orleans. The material was delivered on time and cut to size. We installed the project in less than 3 hours with a 4 man crew without cutting a single piece of foam. We look forward to doing more projects with your company in the future.”
