Closed Cell Foam Sheets For Caravans And Motorhome Upholstery Padding

In recent years, Britons have become well known for being the “Staycation Nation” as UK holiday destinations grow more popular with families opting out of stays abroad.

With Cornwall coming out on top as the UK destination and Devon as a close second, rural breaks alongside the breathtaking UK landscape are the go-to havens for holidaymakers. That, in turn, has had a positive effect on the demand for more comfortable and luxurious accommodation.

With families spending several weeks over the summer away - they’re seeking a home from home - and caravans and motorhomes are more often the favoured type of accommodation for households.

Many holiday parks with static caravans, single axle caravans and motorhomes have overhauled the interior of the trailers to improve all around amenity, comfort, and enjoyment for a holidaymakers stay. The most popular cushioning used is closed cell polyethylene foam (PE foam) as its varying benefits make it an excellent candidate for furnishings.

Closed cell polyethylene foam is incredibly durable with regular use, which is advantageous for holiday parks with weekly visitors throughout seasons. Due to its closed cell properties and formation, it doesn’t crumble or break like some foams, and retains its form with use. It also absorbs impact incredibly well for playful children and animals.


Many interior cabins require cushioning that is easy to move and store - whether that’s for movability when cleaning or for access to sofa beds built into lounge areas, closed cell foam won’t be a strain to lift.

Water resistant, chemical resistant and flame retardant, closed cell foam also come in antibacterial grades to keep the foam clean with regular use and maintain low odour.
