Egg Crate Profile Foam Toppers
eFoam's egg-crate foam mattress toppers are designed to provide maximum comfort all night long, from head to toe, assisting in a whole night's restful sleep.
Egg-crate foam mattress toppers from eFoam are made from fire retardant polyurethane foam, in various densities all at 5cm thick. Reflex superior foams are a popular choice for egg-crate foam mattress toppers and are renowned for their flexible yet supportive nature.
Whilst memory foam is the most well-known choice for mattress toppers, the egg-crate foam has become an increasingly popular alternative. This is mainly due to the egg-crate peaks enabling increased blood flow and airflow underneath you whilst you lay down. They can be used with the peaks facing upwards or downwards, although they are generally placed with the peaks facing upwards.
For those who dislike the heat that standard flat memory foam toppers can generate, egg-crate foam toppers - also known as mattress comforters or ripple overlays - are a much more ideal alternative solution. Convoluted (egg-crate) foam mattress toppers are suitable for side sleepers or individuals who suffer from joint pains, such as hip pain, lower back pain, & sciatica. They are also vastly used in the healthcare sector, more commonly in hospitals for patients recovering from surgery, as they significantly reduce pressure & bed sores.
