About foam shock absorbers

The Nomapack system foam lengths are highly shock-absorbent and provide extra protection from vibration in transit. They have been specially designed to provide outstanding protection against damage caused in transit, including shock damage and vibration.

The unique design of the foam means that it can be easily manipulated to create a wedge between products, corner protection, edge protection and surface protection.

Unlike Nomafoam’s other L and U shaped profiles, which are used for general packaging, the system foam is most suited to sensitive items, such as valuable electronics and medical equipment. This can include microscopes, computers, laptops, other electronic devices comprising delicate internal components, which could easily break should they suffer an impact whilst in transit.

*Please note that our foam shock absorbers are not fire-rated.

Our foam shock absorbers

We stock the most popular size in the Nomafoam system range, which provides brilliant shock and vibration protection to the majority of products. It has a density of 34kg/m3 and a hollow design to absorb the energy produced by shocks in transit, before it affects your products.

What’s more, because the product is from trusted brand Nomafoam it has a number of additional features, which are particularly beneficial for transit packaging. This includes minimal water absorption (less than 1% in a 40 day period), temperature resistance, non-scratch material for smooth surfaces, as well as being 100% recyclable and chemically neutral.


Each SKU in the Nomafoam system range is defined by its ‘B’ dimension, the height of the L Profile which determines the thickness of the foam.

The ‘A’ dimension is the useable area angle size, usually 90 degrees or slightly more. This helps to give a good idea of how it will fit on to products. Finally the ‘C’ measurement is the length of the profile.

High density shock absorbers are supplied in two metre strips, and are designed for sensitive products.

This can include electronic items such as laptops, monitors and DVD players.

To use, measure the foam strip against the item and cut to size.

Attach to your item, around the edges to absorb shock in transit. Shock absorbers usually work best inside boxes, to hold the item in place and give shock protection.
