Frequently Asked Questions
What is Egg Crate Foam used for?
Egg Crate foam has several key applications.
One main use is for a mattress topper. This is because the foam has excellent airflow from the cones and 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.
Another use is 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. We recommend Charcoal Foam for this application.
Another key use for Egg Crate foam is cases such as guns, cameras, and other equipment cases. It does well to hold 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 foam types and firmnesses. They provide a cooler sleeping mattress on hot nights because of the excellent airflow provided by the cone shapes. The cones also provide 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.
