Foam2Home convert foam from UK and Ireland leading producers of PU foam. All of our foam meets the highest manufacturing standards and meets all UK and Ireland fire safety regulations.
What is Stockinette?
Stockinette is often fitted to foam to help prevent wear to your cushion covers. Stockinette will allow you to fit your foam with greater ease. Stockinette is knitted, stretchy cotton mix fabric, that provides a barrier between foam and the underside of your fabric to help prevent wear and will considerably ease fitting. Stockinette can be fitted to any length of foam however it has a maximum stretched width of 100cm.
What is Dacron/Polyester wrap?
Dacron is a spun polyester fibre. In sheet form it is added to your foam order to provide extra body to a cushion. We will add stockinette free of charge to orders requiring Dacron as this will help prevent the Dacron catching of the cushion zip during fitting.
Dacron comes in 6oz and 12oz.
6oz is approximately 1/2″ thick and 12oz is approximately 1″ thick so you may need to adjust your measurements accordingly.
How much Dacron should I use?
We offer two weights of Dacron, 6oz and 12oz, which are available to add to your order when entering sizes. The general rule of thumb is that in our experience, measure the border width of your cover (assuming a box style cushion), match the thickness for the foam to the boarder of the cover, then add 12oz Dacron. This will provide you with a well fitted cushion cover.
6oz is approximately 1/2″ thick and 12oz is approximately 1″ thick< so please note that you may need to adjust your measurements accordingly.
Do you recycle?
Yes, we aim to be as sustainable as we possibly can. All of our off cut foam and polyester is recycled or repurposed.
How do I order Foam Cut-to-Size?
Please go to our cut-to-size page and follow the 5 steps on how to order.
Can you explain what Cut-to-Size foam is?
This is foam that is cut to the customer’s individual requirements. It will be guaranteed to be square cut and have clean edges.
How do I measure my cushions?
If possible it is always best to measure sizes from your existing covers, measuring old foam is not always accurate as foam can become misshaped over time. Measure your covers from corner to corner, along the seams, pulling the cover taught to ensure you get a good fit. It is always best to measure both front and back of each cover as some cushions can vary in width front to back. Again when measuring the depth of a cushion, it should be done seam to seam. If you have a piped edge cover, measure between the piping. You should order foam to the size of the cover boarder width and then add Dacron and stockinette to get the best fit for your cushion. You should never measure across the middle of a cushion as it may have a domed top which will affect your overall measurements. Please select the appropriate product shape from our list and enter your dimensions as per the measuring process above.
Where do I send my foam custom template to?
We recommend you upload your template during the order process.
Alternatively, please email your template to email@example.com or post to the following address:
What is the smallest size of foam that you can cut?
The smallest thickness of a piece of foam that we can cut is around 7mm.
Why does my foam vary in colour?
It is normal for foam to have a slight variance in colour, it is just part of the manufacturing process. This will have no effect on the quality of the product.
Why does my foam smell?
All foam may have a “new foam” smell, however everyone’s sense of smell differs.
This smell will disspate after a short period airing the foam out.
Can I collect my order?
Unfortunately as we are an E-Commerce business we only offer a delivery service.
Can I place my order over the phone?
Unfortunately not, all orders must be placed through our website.
I ordered incorrectly, what should I do?

Is there a minimum order size?
Although we aim to meet all our customer’s needs. For very small cut-to-size pieces it often requires more production work to cut sheets into very thin pieces. Therefore, we require customers to spend a minimum of €20 or alternatively purchase a piece with a minimum thickness of 7mm.
