Easy to assemble and hard-wearing, this is a well-loved piece that offers the perfect relaxation for hours.

Buying Guide

Closed-cell foam pool floats are made of the same stuff that is used to create water noodles (which are a type of pool float), yoga mats, portable rafts and much more. The difference between closed cell foam floats and other types of floats is that it is created using a special process that creates tiny, distinct cells within the plastic. It is usually done by putting the plastic into a gas such as nitrogen and then adding high pressure.

The advantages of closed-cell foam pool floats are many. The biggest one, however, is that they will not deflate if they are snagged or punctured – unlike some types of flotation devices or rubber rafts. This means that your kid’s water wings or other flotation devices aren’t going to deflate and leave your darling sinking.

Even if everything else comes apart, that foam pool float is still going to keep its buoyancy. The second advantage is that it is easy for manufacturers to shape this stuff into flotation devices or toys that can increase everyone’s pleasure in a day at the lake. Pool noodles and fold-up swimming docks are just two examples of the many uses for closed cell foam pool floats.

You don’t have to inflate closed cell foam pool floats. If you’ve ever arrived at the beach only to discover that the electronic charge portal on your vehicle has given up the ghost, then you know exactly how delightful it is having a water toy that doesn’t have to be inflated. With these toys, you won’t find yourself sitting in the hot sun while your darling child dances around chanting, “Hurry, hurry,” as you huff and puff trying to get their favorite swim toy inflated.

Except in pool floats, closed-cell foam has a number of very important uses, including:

  • Life-Saving Rings Buoys. Closed-cell foam is ideal for creating life-saving rings. Since the stuff won’t deflate and is amazingly buoyant, as soon as you can get one under a panicky swimmer then at least half your troubles are over because this stuff just will not go down. That unsinkable property also makes this stuff a shoo-in for safety marker supports and buoys. It wears well, too, making it through several seasons before needing replacement.

  • Life Jackets. If you love boating, then closed-cell foam is your friend. Boats and life jackets are two things that go together, and when the life jacket is made from closed-cell foam, “man overboard” isn’t nearly as panicky a thing as it might be. There was once a young couple who took their two-year-old with them on a float trip. Of course, their canoe turned over and everything in it took a dunking including the baby. Fortunately, he was wearing a closed foam life vest and went bobbing downstream where he was quickly recovered by some fishermen. His parents were terrified and panicked, but he was happy as a little fish having gone for a good swim and having made some new friends.
