About U-profile foam protection

Nomafoam, one of the leading brand names in foam protection packaging, is manufactured using low-density polyethylene that has unique properties to ensure it is extremely flexible, whilst still maintaining a tight grip on edges.

Used as one of the most popular types of edge protection, particularly in the furniture and framing industry, it is economical, easy and quick to handle, and flexible.

These U-tulip shaped foam profiles have been developed by Nomafoam to efficiently protect the most sensitive parts of the product - the edges. Thanks to the tension of its lips, the U-shape grips the edges automatically, and protects against knocks, scrapes and scratches.

*Please note that our U-profile foam protection is not fire-rated.

Our range of U-profile foam protection

There are eight different sizes to choose from in Kite’s range, to accommodate really narrow and much wider edges. Nomafoam is supplied in lengths of two metres as standard; however it can easily be cut to specific requirements.

Nomafoam offers a range of additional benefits which are essential when packaging large fragile items such as furniture, glass, picture frames and metal sheeting. It is shock-absorbent, water-resistant, doesn’t scratch or damage smooth surfaces, and is temperature resistant (from -40C to +100C) - so is the perfect product for packaging goods for transit – particularly in various climates and atmospheres.

Nomafoam is also 100% recyclable and chemically neutral, making it a more environmentally-friendly way to package high-value products.


The Nomafoam range is defined by its useable dimensions (for example 5-15mm) which is measured according to its ‘A’ (widest) and ‘B’ (narrowest) opening. For example, when an edge is 16mm thick a 15-25 foam is needed, however if an edge is 14mm thick a 5-15 foam is required.

The C dimension is the length of the profile sides. Dimension D is the thickness of the profile bottom.
