The Many Uses for Foam

Chances are this isn’t the first time you’ll hear about foam. We’ve all encountered it in some way or another throughout our lives. Unfortunately, most of us haven’t felt it as a mattress or even cushions. Don’t go running out and collecting packaging foam. Canada has plenty of it, but it’s not the kind we’re talking about here.

One example is custom outdoor cushions made from foam. So long as the exterior material is waterproof or you at least bring them in at the end of the day, you can experience the superior comfort provided by foam. You’ll never consider stuffing again.

Another great use for foam is as a mattress. If you’ve been using the traditional variety and find yourself waking up with aches and pains or just the overall feeling that you didn’t get enough sleep, chances are you need a foam mattress in your life.

Unlike springs, foam will even disburse your weight. As a result your body gets the exact amount of support it needs. What won’t happen is a bunch of springs pushing back on you at odd angles where support isn’t needed. When this happens, you lose out on sleep and you wake with the kind of discomfort described earlier.

Don’t discount foam as only good for packing things. There’s a lot more to it than that.
