The Causes of Cushion Failure


 Without enough weight, the durability won’t be great.

All cushioning products, including foam and fiber, will soften and lose overall height with us. It’s unavoidable. However, with the proper awareness of foam properties, softening and height loss can be greatly minimized, maximizing customer comfort, experience, and satisfaction.

In short, cushion failure can be easily avoided.



This is the starting point for any evaluation of the quality of foam. In order to prevent cushion failure, the cushioning product must maintain adequate weight density to support normal use.

DENSITY = lbs./bu.ft.


 Lower density foam will always be at risk of cushion failure. Simply put, without enough weight, the durability won’t be great.
