Foam Selection Tips

In normal operations, we prefer to use a foam with a density rating of 3.1 and an ILD rating of 33 for sofa and chair cushions. We'll usually use a back cushion foam which is a 2.4 density with an ILD rating of 18. This foam material produces a medium-firm back cushion. Where a softer back cushion is desired the 1.8 density/ 11 lb. ILD foam material may be substituted.

On dining room chairs, where the thickness of the foam is generally lower (1-2"), it would be recommended to use a foam with a density rating of 2.8 and an ILD rating of 41 to compensate for the reduced foam thickness. Where some clients prefer the softer feel of the 33 lb. foam for dining seats, It is usually recommend increasing the foam thickness by 1/2" if the chair style lends itself to that option.

You will note that the ILD ratings of the foam materials in the chart range up to 61 lbs. While these very firm foam materials are available and have their specific and appropriate uses we would never recommend the use of any foam material higher than a 41 lb ILD rating for seat cushions.

The 50 and 61 lb ILD foam materials may be used for such applications as kneelers or fitness equipment pads where the foam thickness is limited to 1-2" and the higher ILD rating is necessary to compensate for the limited thickness of the foam.

Below is a chart which describes some of the different foam materials and their uses.
