The BGA offers guidance on safety cushions at http://www.gliding.co.uk/bgainfo/safety/documents/safetyfoam.pdf
CONFOR significantly reduces deceleration in vertical crash impacts.
Tests found that a combination of 1" thick CF-47 (green) and 0.5" thick CF-45 (blue) CONFOR Foams a most effective seat cushion with respect to energy absorption and comfort for a glider/ light aircraft seat. The 1"green CF47 offers maximum shock absorption while 0.5" blue CF45 offers comfort and some shock absorption. Some seating clearances may dictate that a 1" thickness is all that can be accommodated. In this instance we are advised that either 1" CF45 (green) or a 0.5" CF45 (green)/0.5" CF47 (blue) combination is used.
Confor Foam is offered in the following thicknesses and combinations:
18" x 16" x 0.5" CF47(green)
18" x 16" x 1" CF47 (green)
18" x 16" x 0.5" CF45 (blue)
18" x 16" x 1" CF45 (blue)
