Top Tip: The border depth on your cover is NOT the finished thickness. A well fitted cushion is always thicker than the border width of the cover. When ordering we need the border depth of the cover NOT the finished thickness of the centre of the cushion.

Foam & Covers: In this listing you are giving us the size of the cover “front to back” “side to side” and the “boarder depth” Its best practice to add Dacron & Stockinette if ordering a foam interior. This gives the cover some extra loft and tightens up the fabric but will not effect the size of the cover at the edges but will give a fuller appearance towards the centre of the cover. If no Dacron or stockinet is ordered we will reduce the boarder depth of the cushion to ensure a tight fit

Feather/ Fibre & Covers : This type of filling gives a fully domed appearance When ordering make sure you measure your existing cover not an old interior. We will make your feather or fibre interiors with a matching boarder width. Take note that a feather or fibre cushion with a 10cm border will be 15cm plus at the centre

Cop26

I guess Cop 26 was either a success or a failure. Depending on your point of view. Just because the “Great and the Good” can’t get their act together, doesn’t mean we ordinary folk should do nothing. Here at foam4u and our sister site www.thefoamshop.co.uk we do our bit to reduce waste. As we are one of the UK’s largest suppliers of Foam Cut to Size. we end up with lots of offcuts. Traditionally this off-cuts would be bailed up and sent back on a lorry to the manufacture to be turned in to Chip Foam. This process takes a huge amount of energy to transport the off cuts, render it down in to small shredded pieces. The foam is compressed and is steamed at very high temperatures to re-bond the shredded foam in to usable sheets.

We don’t do any of this . Our smaller offcuts are shredded down and sold as Cushion filler. Larger pieces are bonded back together with a water based adhesive and turned in to Budget mattress’s (Doubles & King-size £75)

We are part of a National Mattress Recycling Initiative, we take in part worn or damaged mattresses. Strip them down and harvest the usable foam. Turning this waste product in to Outdoor Seating, Ped beds. and an eco alternative to our Standard Foam Cut to Size and numerous other products.

Lets try our bit to save the planet, One cushion or mattress at a time.
