CALCULATING AREAS AND QUANTITIES
We can help you if you call 0115 853 1983 but if you wish to work it out yourself follow these guidelines.
First calculate your entire area to be covered in square metres. We then recommend you add at least 10% for wastage and breakages.
Then measure the linear length of any external corners, if any, then:
a. Multiply the area by 2 to calculate the quantity of 1/2 Square Metres required. Eg. For 4 square meters buy 8 x 1/2 metres of flat tiles.
b. For external corners you will need to buy 12 corner tiles for each linear metre. Eg. for 3 Linear metres you require 36 tiles.
c. If using corner tiles, for each 20 corner tiles subtract 1/2 sqm flat tiles. Eg. for 5 linear meters of corners, which is 60 tiles, you would subtract 3 x 1/2 sqm flat tiles.
