Foam pits are growing in popularity as more and more athletes utilize them to push the boundaries of their sports with reduced safety risks. Additionally, foam pits designed for recreation rather than protection are a hit with children in gymnasiums, indoor playgrounds and activity centers. For those wondering where to get foam for a foam pit, Foam Factory, Inc. is the perfect resource to find filler in the right size, type and quantity needed for any application, be it a home playpen or an industrial testing area.
For impact absorbing foam pits to provide the safety they are intended for, proper materials need to be used for their filling. With more than 30 years of experience manufacturing, selling and working with foam, Foam Factory has the necessary knowledge and expertise to help you meet your safety needs, as well as options to let you customize any product to your aesthetic preferences.
Foam pit foam is available in two different varieties; custom cubes in a range of sizes for larger scale, more professional installations, and foam scrap pit filler of varying shapes and varieties for purposes geared more toward recreation and entertainment.
The polyurethane foam used for the foam pit blocks comes in a range of densities so custom pits can be created, whether a soft, cushiony product is desired or a firmer, more resilient filler. In addition to customized firmness, many colors are available for either creating a pit with one solid color, a couple complementary colors, or all of them for a rainbow appearance. The colored foam products are also flame retardant, which is beneficial for uses where motorized vehicles like dirt bikes will be landing in the pit. Foam cubes can be cut as small as 2 cubic inches for pits aimed at recreation or light use, or as large as 1 cubic foot, the size most frequently used in extreme sport pits where people are landing in the foam with vehicles and/or heavy equipment at high speeds from great heights.
For a more economical alternative, Foam Factory also provides foam scraps that can be used to pad, soften and fill foam pits. The term scrap does not denote that the foam is of substandard quality, a factory second or defective, however. These scraps are production remnants of top-quality polyurethane foam, in shapes and sizes unable to be repurposed into another end product. The foam scrap bags, stuffed with a variety of foam types, contain approximately 12 cubic feet of foam and are a simpler solution to filling a pit receiving less acrobatic use with soft impact foam.
Foam Factory’s large warehousing and production capacity lets them easily produce short-run quantities for small areas and re-filling existing pits, or mass orders that can go as high as 50,000 foam blocks for large-scale projects and multiple pits. Large quantities of scrap foam can be ordered as well, and for both the custom cubes and scrap foam bags, bulk discounts are available.
Foam padding pits have been used for years in gymnastics to provide athletes with a way to try new or difficult moves safely, before attempting them on the standard equipment. More recently, motocross riders, BMX riders, skateboarders and rollerbladers have embraced foam pits as a way to attempt daring tricks, without the worry of crashing to the ground from 20, 30 or 40 feet in the air and breaking expensive equipment or getting hurt. And of course, the recreational aspect of tumbling into a soft, cushiony pit is enjoyed by many. So whether your need falls into one of these categories or you are filling a foam pit for a completely different use, let Foam Factory create the materials right for you that will keep you landing in foam safely and comfortably, time and time again.
