I used to pick up any bits of foam I needed from a place near a customer of mine on Court Works Industrial Estate, Bridgnorth Road, Madeley. Not sure of the foam company name but they had a unit full of all types of foam and the guy let me pick through the off-cuts (loads of choice) for a few quid. Not been there for a while but might be worth a look if it's not too far from you.

Looks like we might need a few takers. Sheets are pretty big and not too cheap

I'm going to measure mine up this weekend and see what size and quantity I need. It seems they don't offer cut to size or shaped on this product yet so we'll have to deal with that aspect too.

He DID seem a little exercised, I thought. Tax is a PITA, damned if you pay it, damned if you don't.

I've now measured up and only need 0.5m of the 10cm but sheet size is 2m x 1.25m. Do we have any other takers for another 1.5m length of a 10cm deep x 1.25m sheet?

(total sheet cost is 472 btw) I would guess at that price probably not?

Cheers

Here is also one alternative source, no idea of the quality of this stuff though.

"Dry Fast Reticulated Foam | eBay

Hawke House Ltd ( www.hawkehouse.co.uk ) in Gosport do 3" self draining foam for 16.62 per Sq Ft. according to their price list.
They may do other thicknesses as well.

When I did an upholstery course there they said the only downside of the self draining foam is it may not be as good as protecting you from hard landings as it compresses more, so this might be worth checking if you need the foam to absorb impact. If your set up is such that you tend to stand up in rough conditions it won't be a problem of course!

Came across some interesting memory foam the other day that they use to line military aircraft with going to see if I can bag a bit
