How it’s made: A liquid foam formula is poured into giant pans and allowed to rise. The enormous “buns” that result are sliced and cut to size, then shaped in stacks on a band saw.
Surface and Density: Open cell. Density range 1.2 – 2.9 pcf (pounds per cubic foot.)
Comfort and durability: Less foam, more air in poured process. Higher density formulas add longevity but open cell foam breaks down more quickly than molded foam.
Appearance: Simple shapes and wrap upholstery added thickness prevents “bottoming out”.
Added Benefits: Least expensive.
Layered “Soft Seat”
How it’s made: A selection of foams of various firmness & density are combined for maximum support and durability, topped off with a soft layer of fiber.
Surface and Density: Dacron Cover. Density range 1.2 – 2.9 pcf
Comfort and durability: Combination of layers provides long lasting support and softness.
Appearance: Sewn cover relaxes pressure for “softer sit”.
Added Benefits: Cost-effective comfort.
Closed Cell Molded Foam
How it’s made: Liquid foam and pressure are used to produce contoured shapes from molds.
Surface and Density: Closed cell surface defends against exterior contaminants that harbor bacteria and promote breakdown. Density range 3.2 – 3.8 pcf.
Comfort and durability: Increased density achieved with pressure molded process adds long lasting comfort.
Appearance: Tailored upholstery accommodates sleek molded shapes.
Added Benefits: Molding process lends itself to ergonomic shaping.
TLC Energy Absorbing Memory Foam
How it’s made: Advanced foam formula with exceptional static rebound properties combines with molded process to produce superior resilience and suppport.
Surface and Density: Sealed exterior provides a shield against contaminants that harbor bacteria and accelerate breakdown. Density 5.2 pcf.
Comfort and durability: Highest density, energy absorbing formula alleviates pressure and provides tremendous support. New TLC foam is quite firm. It will soften with use.
Appearance: Tailored upholstery accommodates ergonomic contours.
Added Benefits: Antimicrobial. Energy absorbing properties relieve pressure. “Memory” property rebounds the same after a lifetime of use.
