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 filling material 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 foam. Foam filling material - our standard filling for indoor cushions; it is not recommended for outdoor use, due to its retention of water
Premium Outdoor/Indoor - Reticulated
Reticulated filling material 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.
