Density

September 29th, 2017

Density refers to the weight in e.g. a cubic foot of foam in an office chair.  The greater the density, the more material in the component, which gives the product greater durability.

Density is measurement of the ‘mass per unit volume’ of a material or substance.  Density is usually expressed in general terms of kilograms per cubic metre and tends to be referred to in relation to measuring strength or durability of materials used in components of office furniture or a room feature.

Technically kilogram per cubic metre is, according to Wikipedia, an SI derived unit (International System) of density, defined by mass in kilograms, divided by volume in cubic metres. The  abbreviation may be any of the following:  kg·m−3,  kg/m3 or {\displaystyle {\tfrac {\text{kg}}{{\text{m}}^{3}}}\!}.
