One of our areas of expertise is foam mattresses. There are various grades and qualities of foam. Our years of experience will ensure that we will guide you to pick the one that best suits your particular needs.
Foam is sold by WEIGHT, not HARDNESS. The weight is the density, the hardness is the compression. Understanding this concept, we are well on the way to helping you determine the right foam for your needs. Understand that weight is the key to longevity, to a point. Once the foam reaches a heaviness of 2lbs per cubic foot, the manufacturer needs to use a better polymer to make any difference in the foam's longevity. With foam, the weight/length of use is determined by pounds of foam per cubic foot. A one-pound foam may last 60 nights of adult use, whereas the two-pound foam will last 5-7 years of adult every-night use. In baking, if you add more salt and yeast, you can make the bread rise higher, but the loaf doesn't weigh any more. The same concept works when talking about foam firmness. By using mixes, different firmnesses can be achieved without varying the weight. When you have heavy foam, a soft compression will have the same length of wear as a heavy foam with an extra firm compression.
In addition to providing you with a good night's sleep, foam is lower in cost compared to all mattresses. So whether you are looking for a new bed for your toddler, sending a young person away to university, setting up a guest bedroom or simply replacing your current bedding, foam is a must to consider.
Now that you have decided that foam is the way to go, what kind of bed can you use? Discount Foam can cut the foam to fit your current bed, or we can provide you with one of our quality Canadian made pine beds to support the mattress. In addition to bunk beds for the kids, we offer frames in twin, double, queen, king or custom sizes.
A convoluted foam layer will actually extend the length of use of the mattress supporting it, given this egg crate topper will be doing most of the work, all the while making your bed more comfortable.
