Quantum foams are produced with a minimum density of 38kg/m3 and have three hardness ratings measured in Newtons.
What is density?
The density which is measured in Kgm3 is an indication of the weight of the foam and how much chemical is used to produce the foam. It is therefore related to cost and longevity. As a general rule, higher density foams last longer than lower density foams but are more expensive to produce.
What is Hardness?
The hardness or ‘feel’ of the foam is measured in Newtons and is easiest characteristic to recognise in the retail market. In lay-mans terms, the softer the feel the lower the hardness, the firmer the feel the higher the hardness.
Hardness has little bearing on the cost of the foam and from the three ‘Quantum’ examples below you can see we have three foams of the same density (38Kgm3) but three different hardness ratings of 85, 130 and 210 Newtons. However, the cost of these foams is the same as the density is the same.
‘Quantum Medium’ 38-130 Deep Purple
Quantum foam is designed to be used in seat cushions from 110mm to 150mm in thickness. It is Purple in colour. It has a medium-firm feel and provides excellent long term support. It also carries a lifetime warranty.
‘Quantum Soft’ 38-85 Light Purple
Quantum Soft foam is designed to be used in seat cushions from 170mm in thickness. It is Light Purple in colour. It has a softer feel than standard Quantum, allowing you to sink into the cushion, but still provides excellent long term support. It also carries a lifetime warranty.
‘Quantum Firm’ FR 38-210 (Blue)
This foam is the best quality we manufacture and as a Quantum foam carry a lifetime guarantee. This foam is a 38kg density (like all Quantum foams) and is used for firm seating. The grade is Fire Retardant for commercial applications that require a firm FR foam. This grade offers a typical hardness ( 205 – 215 newtons) for seating. If you are looking for the best, as we say ” The best seat in the house”, then this is it.
