Brick cladding panels – how to measure how many DuraBric panels you need

How to measure up: how many brick cladding panels will I need?

DuraBric brick cladding panels are the same size for every profile. So, measuring up to determine how many DuraBric panels you need is easy. Just follow this simple method.  

  1. Measure the height and length of the area you want to cover.
  2. Multiply the height x the length to get the metre2 coverage.
  3. The number of metre= the number of DuraBric panels you need.

For example a wall 3m x 5m = 15 metre– so this area would need 15 DuraBric panels.


We recommend working on an average of 1 metre2 coverage per panel (even though the panels are actually 1.08 metre2). This provides an 8% buffer to allow for waste created by panels that may require cutting.

When installing Dura Standard, Dura Tumbled, Dura Rustic and Dura Cinderblock 3 an offset layout is recommended. These panels may result in a slightly higher waste allowance.

If your installation includes panelling around complex shapes or corners this may also create additional wastage, requiring extra panels.
