Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Need a little more information. Are you adding these 5mm strips to the floor or the walls? If walls, we need the wall height.

I figured it was flooring but you never know.

I’ll give you SI units as mixing units is difficult. You can convert back if need be.

Converting to meters:
43 ft * 0.3048 ft/m = 13.1064 m
15 ft * 0.3048 ft/m = 4.572 m
90mm / 1000 mm/m = 0.090 m
5mm / 1000 mm/m = 0.005 m

13.1064 m / (0.090m + 0.005m) = 138 (5mm strips) * 4.572 m long = 631 m of 5mm stripping (2070 ft of 5mm stripping)

No waste is calculated so order extra. Regardless of the direction it’s laid (longitudinal or laterally), the amount of the material is the same but you need to pay attention to the spacing at the edges to keep them equal. The spacing will change depending on which direction it’s laid.
