Frequently Asked Questions
What is Egg Crate foam used for?
Egg crate foam is used as a mattress topper for airflow and how it contours to your body. This is designed to prevent bedsores and allows the skin to breathe without full contact with the entire mattress surface. The cones also allow for pressure point relief, providing more support from the cone tips while conforming to the individual’s body shape through the lower channels.
It can also be used for acoustical dampening and soundproofing in home studios and home theaters. The cone design leads to sound deadening through the reduction of echo as noise hits the cones.
It is also used in cases such as gun and camera cases to hold the devices in place without the need to carve the foam out to insert the equipment.
Why is Egg Crate foam used as mattress toppers?
Egg crate foam is commonly used in mattress toppers because it is available in a wide range of firmnesses and foam types. They make for a cooler sleeping mattress on hot nights through the airflow provided by the cone shape that provides a layer between the person and the mattress.
This foam is easily rolled up for storage and provides a good foam mattress for visiting guests. It can also be used as a camping pad because it is easy to roll, lightweight, and can be made as a foam bed in the back of a truck or a foam pad for the bottom of a tent. The foam is designed to fold without creasing, so it is ideal as a foam mattress in futons.
It is also used as a foam cushion in chairs, where a person may sit for a long period of time. The foam is designed to allow high and low-pressure point relief and airflow, making for a better seat cushion.
