minimum quantity requirement. We do suggest adding 10% on to allow for cutting and layout.

How Do I Know The Area of My Proposed Cladding?

If you have a rectangular wall it is simple:

Length of Wall (in metres): Height of Wall (in metres):
Total: in m²


METRIC?! How About Imperial!

Use this converter to change the inches measurement to metres:

Length in Inches: Length In Metres:


What If I Have More Than One Wall To Cover?

Let's Take The Example of A Shed...

Shed Drawing One

A: Side A is simple, just multiply the height by the length to get the area.
B: Side B is slightly more complicated! Multiply the overall length by the height, then subtract the area of the window.
C: With Side C split the area in 2 parts, with the rectangle at the bottom and the triangle at the top. Figure out the area of the rectangle by multiplying the height by the length. With the traingle, times the measurement of highest point of the traingle with the length of the longest side of the triangle (the base). Divide this figure by 2 and magically you get the area of the triangle! Add the area of the rectangle and the triangle together.
D: With Side D, Duplicate the same process as for Side C, and minus the area of the door.

Accessories such as 90 Degree Angles and trims can be calculated easily. Please refer to our installation manuals found here.
