The amazing properties of natural Talalay latex foam provide unmatched comfort, durability and are available in three different firmness levels. Natural latex, also known as latex rubber, is a sustainable natural resource from the rain forests of Sri Lanka. It is derived from rubber trees, and provides a number of impressive health benefits including an impressive resistance to allergens.
For customers unfamiliar with latex, latex differs from Memory Foam in that our natural latex is only 100% natural rubber, the most durable of all foams, sleeps cooler and offers a more buoyant support, whereas Memory Foam will offer the sensation of sinking and molding to your body. Both types of foam are very effective in reducing pressure points.
One of the more impressive everyday uses of polyurethane foam is in couch and seat cushions because of its comfort and lifespan. Today's polyurethane foam will retain its form and support, likely outlasting the life of your couch, chair or mattress!
Polyurethane foam is available in varying firmness and qualities, choose High Density "HD" foams for the most durable foams, or Medium Density "H" foams for applications were foam is not intended extended long term use. Do not choose Low Density foam for cushions or mattresses.
Please Note: When used in a custom cushion or mattress,memory foam must be used in conjunction with a firmer base layer for support.
Memory foam is considered medium in firmness and responds to your body's pressure and temperature. It conforms to the curves of the body, offering support without discernible pressure on bones and joints. Because of this lack of pressure, improved comfort and circulation is a noticeable effect of quality memory foam.
There are several makers of memory foam internationally, but the Foamsource uses only the highest quality materials, made by Foamex here in the US. Memory Foam is available in varying densities, which correspond to the durability of the foam, not firmness. Our premium 5lb Aerus memory foam is Foamex's flagship foam.
