We can cut foam for a variety of uses including for your latest DIY project. Picking a foam type can be daunting. Call us and we will do our best to advise you (01752 204060). Foam can be used for a variety of DIY projects including; bench seating, footstools, crafting, fancy dress, sound-proofing, insulating, tool protection, packaging and more. 

We stock a large range of foam types and densities for different uses. Typically the thicker foam is the firmer is feels so we recommend firm foams for thin seating and softer foams for thicker seating thicknesses. The same logic can be used for different applications. However as mentioned call our team, explain the use and thickness needed and we can recommend a density.
