Memory foam roof mattress cut to size?

Post by dblake » Tue Feb 26, 2013 10:43 am

A good while ago I remember reading about a helpful company who would supply memory foam to replace the roof mattress but sent it pre-cut to allow for the trap. Quite a few members used them but doing a search of the forums I'm not able to find reference to them. The one mention i did find pointed to a thread that was now deleted.
Does anyone remember the company?
Cheers :)

This is where I bought my topper, cut to shape:

When I rang it sounded like they'd done quite a few for bongo's in the past.

Aha, that's the sort of thing I'm looking for. Do you mind me asking how much it was to have it cut to order?
I can find 2" double memory foam toppers for £30-£35 elsewhere on-line - but was unsure about how successful I'd be taking a bread knife to it!

No problem, it was £10 to have it cut to size. They've done quite a few so should have the template, if not I've got one as a pdf that you can send them.

Does anyone have a template they could either email me or provide a link here that I could use to cut my memory foam for the roof mattress?

Thanks

I'm thinking of buying a 2" replacement Roof Mattress (comfortz leisure) & wondered if the roof can still be lowered with the mattress still in situ - has anyone else got a roof mattress that they do not need to remove when the roof is lowered ?
With Kind Regards

I've had some foam cut to size from here before. All was good :)
