Our standard foam is ideal for all types of use but we recommend it for more occasional use. So if you are planning on more regular use then we would recommend our premium or luxury grades. Our standard foam is available in three firmness options to suit your specific requirements. All our standard foams are fire retardant to the UK furniture fire regulations.
Standard Medium Foam
Our standard medium foam is great for all seating and is widely used in the soft furnishings industry. We recommend this option if your cushions are thicker than 7.5cm (3 inches) (33KG density & 160 Newton hardness).
The premium foam range is designed for everyday use and represents excellent value for money. As with all our comfort foams, it’s available in soft, medium or firm depending on the level of comfort you require. If you want the best that money can buy and a longer lifespan then our premium foam range is our recommended grade of foam for sofa cushion replacement. All our premium foams are fire retardant to the UK furniture fire regulations.
Premium Soft Foam
Our premium soft foam is great for all seating if you require a softer level of comfort. The foam is designed to withstand regular daily use so it will keep its shape and comfort for many years. It’s also excellent for mattresses and sofa beds, offering a medium/soft feel (39kg density & 120 Newton Hardness).
Premium Medium Foam
The premium medium foam is a popular choice as it offers a bit more support than our luxury soft option. It will stand the test of time, last longer than the standard foam, and is designed for daily use. It is also excellent for all mattresses and is our recommended foam for caravans, motor homes and campervans (39kg density & 155 Newton hardness).
Our luxury range of foam is simply the best available in the UK for upholstery, soft furnishing and bedding/mattress requirements, so even with daily use it will last for many years. Even after several years of use, we expect this range of foam to be very similar in look and feel to the day that it was bought. We recommend our luxury foam range for cushion replacement due to the longevity and excellent levels of comfort it provides. All our luxury foams are fire retardant to the UK furniture fire regulations.
Luxury Soft Foam
This beautiful foam is exported to furniture manufacturers around the world and is popular due to its luxurious levels of comfort. A very soft foam, its sumptuous feel allows you to sink into the cushion and its quality means that it will always spring back quickly to its original shape (50kg density & 100 Newton hardness).
Luxury Medium Foam
The luxury medium foam is widely used for cushions and mattresses. It provides slightly more support than the soft option making it our most popular choice and it’s what we recommend for sofa cushion replacement. As one of the best cushion foam money can buy, you will not be disappointed with the quality and comfort it provides (50kg density & 100 Newton hardness).
Luxury Firm Foam
This is the firmest foam option in our luxury range and provides a very firm level of comfort. This is not suitable for everyone, but if you prefer a firmer cushion and want unrivalled longevity then this is the option to choose. Like all our luxury range, it can be used in mattresses so if you want something exceptionally firm then this option is ideal (50kg density).
Premium Back Foam
Our premium back foam is most suitable for the backs on your sofa, this has a medium/soft feel. Because the backs don’t hold much weight this is where you want the comfort to be.
Our firm durable recycled foam is the perfect choice when you need a budget foam. This foam is industrial foam waste which is granulated and bonded together, then compressed into blocks. It is particularly good for bar stools, gym use, church pews etc.
This high impact, lightweight foam is suitable for all kinds of protective packaging requirements including flight suitcases, briefcases and cardboard boxes. Please note that this foam is not fire retardant and therefore not suitable for upholstery.
Reticulated (Outdoor foam)
Reticulated foam lets the moisture and liquid pass through leaving the surface dry to touch and gives a firm supportive seat. This type of foam is perfect for outdoor use such as garden furniture and deck cushions and mattresses.
