High Density Foam, What is it?
Upgrade to High Density Foam
High Density Foam can be used for a variety of different projects. Looking to upgrade your mattress, bay window seats, sofa, chair cushions, caravan cushions, camping bed or camper van? Using high density foam is an excellent way to do so. It’s the best way to ensure both reliability and long-lasting comfort in your seating.
What High Density Foam is
High density foam has a compact cell structure and as such is very dense, hence the name. As a result of this, it is known to be incredibly durable which helps to ensure longevity. When used in a sofa, for example, we can note how its unique structure works to conform to the contours of a user’s shape. This does so whilst still providing excellent levels of support and is able to quickly spring back into its original form.
Unlike some cushion fillings, sofa cushions containing this foam do not tend to sag as frequently. Being so structurally compact is the main reason this foam type has such an impressive lifespan.
Density in foam applies in the same way as any other use of the word. It essentially is used to indicate the mass of a material per a measurable size or volume. The way the density of foam is measured is by weighing a 12 x 12 x 12 block of the material. So for example, if a certain foam grade is stated to weigh 2.5lb’s, that is how much a 12 x 12 x 12 block of it weighs.
The general rule is – the higher the density, the greater the longevity! High density foam is known to be long-lasting and is unlikely to break down at the same rate low or medium density foam could.
