The latest development from Vita is FRee foam, winner of the prestigious NBF Innovation of the Year Award for 2019/20. FRee is TCPP-free, scorch-free and has reduced odour yet makes no compromise on quality, performance or fire retardancy. Not waiting for any potential change in legislation concerning fire retardant chemicals, Vita has developed a range of combustion modified ether foams that meet the high standards of fire safety required by UK and Irish regulations without the addition of fire-retardant chemicals. The range is available in several grades to allow furniture and bedding manufacturers to customise their product construction. This foam has significant benefits for producers, retailers, consumers and the environment.

Speaking about the innovative spirit that drives Vita, Group CEO Ian Robb said ‘Vita’s history has been one of innovation, adaptation and never standing still. FRee foam is the latest development in this vein, and we were delighted to receive the accolade of Innovation of the Year at the NBF Bed Show awards for it. FRee is a classic innovation story – a clear need, years of tough development, testing and redesign to hone the idea, and a finished product that does its core job much better than its predecessors. To be recognised for it is a real honour.’
