Frequently Asked Questions
What are foam trapezoids used for?
The most common use of a foam trapezoid shape is dining room chair cushions. Most dining room chair cushions are less wide in the back and wider in the front. Normally a dining room chair cushion in a trapezoid foam shape is one or two inches thick. Trapezoid shaped foam is also used in bay windows, again, because the back width isn’t as wide as the front width. Some bay windows require three cushions that could be a combination of three trapezoids if the sides butt up in a forty-five-degree angle. Manufacturers of automobiles have made their seats uncomfortable and too low in height for the average user. Trapezoid shaped foam is also used as car seat foam padding to elevate the driver while providing comfort.
What is the most common foam used in foam trapezoid shapes?
High Resilience foam for dining room chair pads is the most comfortable and longest lasting of foams available. In dining room chair seat padding, the High Resilience foam performs best in firm at two inches thick. Bay window foam padding is not used as often as dining room chair seat foam, making the High-Density foam type a more commonly used foam. Bay window foam padding in High Density foam is also in firm and two inches in thickness.
