Tri-fold cushions come in a few different varieties, and no matter what you’re looking for FoamOrder has the solution. We’ve been producing custom cushions for over 20 years, so have the experience to provide the right custom foam and covers to meet any need. We carry over 30 types of foam from traditional high-resiliency (HR) polyurethane foam to ultra-comfortable and organic latex foam. We also carry a broad line of fabrics to provide custom cushion covers for tri-fold cushions. We carry Sunbrella® fabrics for high-traffic or high-use areas that might need a stain-resistant cover, as well as a wide selection of cotton print and Robert Allen™ fabrics. Let our step-by-step process walk you through ordering your tri-fold cushions to the exact specifications you need, including dimensions, foam type, and batting and cover options. And, if you need further help, our friendly experts in Customer Service can lend a hand to help you place your order.
Tri-fold cushions are often purchased for occasional use. If this is the case for you, we recommend our less-expensive Econoflex™ foam. If your tri-fold cushion will get everyday use, then we recommend our Everflex™ foam.
Dacron wrap is purely optional for tri-fold and bi-fold cushions. Dacron batting is primarily to give a cushion a fuller look, so if your tri-fold cushion doesn’t need that, you can forego dacron wrap. If you do want the fuller look and extra comfort that dacron provides, we’d suggest a bookwrap treatment for a tri-fold cushion as the spaces where the cushions join together don’t need a wrap.
There is no rule-of-thumb for the thickness of a tri-fold cushion. The appropriate thickness depends on how you’ll use the cushion, and how often it will be used. If your tri-fold cushion is being used as a sleeping surface, we’d generally recommend a minimum of two inches of a firmer foam like our Everflex V54 or Econoflex C55. For a bit more sleeping comfort in a tri-fold, we’d recommend 3–4 inches of our Everflex V44 or Econoflex C33.
