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.
- Measure the height and length of the area you want to cover.
- Multiply the height x the length to get the metre2 coverage.
- The number of metre2 = the number of DuraBric panels you need.
For example a wall 3m x 5m = 15 metre2 – so this area would need 15 DuraBric panels.
BRICK CLADDING PANELS WASTE ALLOWANCE
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.
