Crumb Foam – Why Buy From GB Foam Direct?

Crumb Foam Crumb

Crumb foam is perfect for a variety of purposes. Many people like to use crumb foam for stuffing cushions and bean bags. It can also be used for other purposes such as for stuffing toys, pet beds, poufs, garden furniture, and packaging.

What is Crumb Foam?

Foam crumb from GB Foam Direct, as the name suggests, is a crumbled form of the same high-quality foam we use in many applications. Here at GB Foam Direct, we offer bags of foam crumb in three different varieties. These include –

  • High-Density Mixed Colour Foam Crumb
  • Pure Memory Foam Crumb
  • Ultimate Bean Bag Filling – a 50/50 mix of the two.

Many people like to use crumb foam for bean bag stuffing. Conventionally polystyrene beads are used for stuffing bean bags. However, many people are beginning to realise the practical benefits of using foam crumb in place of polystyrene beans. Foam crumb is far more comfortable than polystyrene beads for example. It offers the same benefits that high-density foam or memory foam does, except it’s in a crumbled form and can be used in a more versatile manner.

Crumb Foam From GB Foam Direct is the Best Choice

We only use new foam to create our crumb foam here at GB Foam Direct. It’s exactly the same type of fire retardant foam that you can purchase directly from us in full form. From a professional standpoint, we believe it’s important to only use brand new materials in everything that we sell; we’ve never used second-hand foam and never will.

Some companies, don’t follow this same practice. In fact, we’ve learned that some foam suppliers use second-hand mattress foam in their foam crumb. The same foam that most likely was slept on for years by a total stranger is being crumbled up and resold to consumers. We’re all for being eco-friendly here at GB Foam Direct (just take a look at our environmental policy), but to us, reusing old mattresses for crumb foam doesn’t sound very hygienic.

Don’t get us wrong, recycling is great, although, it needs to be done in the correct manner. The amount we perspire varies between each individual, however, everybody sweats. Naturally, some of this will be lost within the mattresses foam when sleeping. This generally happens with most mattresses, and for most of us, it’s not a problem so long as you keep your sheets clean. Purchasing crumb foam that contains sweat from a stranger, however, is a different story. It’s not hygienic and not something which you want to be using to stuff various items with.

Know Where Your Crumb Foam Has Come From

The best thing to do in order to avoid situations such as these is to enquire regarding the origins of your crumb foam. Some foam suppliers will repurpose used foam as a means to save money and offer their products at a discounted rate. On face value, a cheap bag of crumb foam seems great, but make sure you know where it’s coming from. We at GB Foam Direct only use brand new foam in order to create our foam crumb, so you can rest assured that there will be no nasty surprises with your order. We’re also priced extremely competitively especially considering the quality of our foam. Take a look for yourself at the foam crumb which we have on offer.
