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 by not maintaining full contact with the surface of the mattress. The cones also allow for pressure point relief, providing more support from the cone tips while also conforming to the user’s body shape through the lower channels.
Another use is acoustical dampening and soundproofing for home studios and home theaters. The design of the cones 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 in cases that include guns, cameras, and other equipment. It does well to hold devices in place without the need to carve the foam in order to insert the equipment.
Why is Egg Crate Foam used as a mattress topper?
Egg Crate foam is commonly used as a mattress topper because it is available in a wide range of foam types and firmnesses. Egg Crate foam provides a cool sleeping experience on hot nights because of its cone shape, allowing for excellent airflow. The cones also provide a breathable layer between the user and the mattress.
Egg Crate foam can easily be rolled up for storage and functions as 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 used as a mattress in the back of a truck or the bottom of a tent. This foam shape is designed to fold without creasing, so it is also ideally used as a mattress in futons.
Lastly, Egg Crate foam is used as a foam cushion in chairs where a person may sit for long periods of time. The foam is designed to allow high and low-pressure point relief as well as airflow, making for a great seat cushion.
