FOAM - The topic on everyone’s mind… Let us share with you some of our wisdom.
There are different grades of regular foam available to the upholsterer or furniture manufacturer.
Foam is rated in three ways: density (quality), indentation load deflection (firmness), and resiliency (lifespan).
The density rating is the best indicator of the quality of the foam. Higher densities indicate higher quality foams that will maintain their shape and support for longer periods of time. However, for the sake of foam furniture like a SLACKER sack bean bag, maximum density isn’t a good thing because it would result in a very flat, hard lounging experience. Density is expressed as a two-digit number that may range from 18 to 32 (with a decimal between the two numbers, so a density rating of 18 is actually1.8 foam).
Indentation load deflection measures firmness. An ILD of around 6 is the firmness of a bed pillow (not firm), while an ILD of 45 is the firmness of a firm mattress (quite firm).
Resiliency refers to lifespan of the product. High Resiliency foam material is produced to offer a long and useful life. It is also often rated as fire resistant (FR).
As a third generation furniture maker, we have been making these foam filled bean bag sacks long before any other brand that you have encountered. Because we actually make them from start to finish (Made in the U.S.A), we are able to sell them to you at a very fair wholesale price.
When you sit down in a SLACKER sack bean bag, you will realize how superior our product really is. Gone is the clumpy feeling that you get from sitting on other sacks. We have the softest sacks on the market that will provide you with years of lounging comfort.
