Why use Moulded Foam?

moulded foam manufacture for Karo casino chairs

The type of seat foam used in casino chairs has an impact on their price and comfort. There are two basic types of flexible foam seat cushions, namely Moulded Foam and Block-Cut Foam.

At Karo, it is our mission to improve the comfort of our gaming stools by including moulded foam in the design of all our seats. Widely used within the automotive industry, this type of foam has long been recognised by ergonomic experts as being able to deliver the best support and cushioning for any person that sits for an extended period of time. If you are looking for a quality casino chair, then this foam is a definite “must-have” feature.
