    I believe that it's called Foamex in the UK. I'm not sure about the measurements of the templates though.

    I think the measurements are US inches. But I'm not 100% sure.

    Reminds me of an old joke:

    Why are women so bad at judging distance? Because they've been told this:

    <---------------------------------->

    ...is six inches all their lives.

    That's what I thought too. But by the way the question was worded I thought that maybe there was another standard I was not aware of, hence the not sure part.
