Hi! I wanted to tell you how great your customer service is and how rare it is to get that. I have my own business and really respect when I see business' still with values :) Not to mention my bench cushions are fantastic. Thank you.
Standard Outdoor/Indoor - Densified Fiber
Densified fiber is an excellent choice and is the industry standard for outdoor custom cushions. Water will easily drain from your cushion which prevents mildew and bacteria. This makes it the perfect filler material for your outdoor custom cushions. It is also well-suited for indoor cushions.
Densified fiber is a special blend of poly fibers that melt at different temperatures. The Poly fiber blend is layered into a slab with fibers that melt at a lower temperature layered against fibers that melt at a higher temperature. The whole slab is then compressed and baked in an oven until the fibers are fused together. This creates a firm surface that can be cut to any size. The poly fibers repell water which makes this an ideal filler for outdoor custom cushions. Cushion Pros has been using densified fiber for years with excellent results.
Standard Indoor - Foam
At Cushion Pros we use environmentally friendly BioComfort® foam from Prestige Fabricators. BioComfort® foam is made with Cargill soy base polyoil which comes from the oil in the seed of the soybean. This process of using soybeans does not affect food stock supplies and helps reduce the dependence on petroleum based products used in foam manufacturing. This is one step towards a cleaner environment. The Prestige Fabricators foam manufacturing process also includes filtration beds which contribute towards a friendly green environment.
Foam Filler is used exclusively for indoor use and is not recommended for outdoor use.
CertiPUR-US approved foam are:
- Low emission VOCs for indoor air quality
- Made without ozone depleters
- Made without PBDEs
- Made without mercury, lead or heavy metals
- Made without formaldehyde
- Made without phthalates
Premium Outdoor/Indoor - Reticulated
Reticulated foam is a very porous, low density solid foam. 'Reticulated' means like a net. Reticulated foams are extremely open foams i.e. there are few, if any, intact bubbles or cell windows. In contrast, the foam formed by soap bubbles is composed solely of intact (fully enclosed) bubbles.
All of the filling material used will be a 1.75-1.85 density. It is an important indicator of filling performance with regard to comfort, support and durability. It is also an indicator of the relative economics of the filling. Filling density is not weight. It's actually a measurement of mass per unit volume for a cubic foot of filling.
All of the filling that is used is a 21-29 lb firmness or IFD depending on thickness. The higher the number the firmer the filling will feel.
