Please note: When comparing different types of foam with other companies it is most important to look at the density and ILD of the foam.

    Foam density is a specific measurement of how much weight in pounds polyurethane foam can handle per cubic foot. This density rating tells you the strength of the foam. The height the number the longer the foam will last. It should not be used exclusively as a sign of durability or comfort, because firmness and lifespan of foam products like mattresses and cushions, depend on many factors, including density. The density may very slightly between each foam shipments. 

   ILD or IFD measurement firmness of how hard or soft a foam is. The higher number the foam is, the firmer the foam is. Also represents how many pounds the foam will hold before it collapse. If you take a block of foam 12" x 12" x 12" cube, after the certain ILD is reach that foam will collapse.

Our polyurethane foam only comes 82" wide so any bigger size will have to be glued together.

The specs below are all closed cell foam. The difference between open cell and closed cell foam...
Open-cell foam is soft - like a cushion. The cell walls, or surfaces of the bubbles, are broken and air fills all of the spaces in the material. 
Closed-cell foam has varying degrees of hardness, depending its density. It is strong enough to walk on without major distortion. Most of the cells or bubbles in the foam are tight like a soccer ball or a kids pool noodle.
