Estimates the number of rolls of welded wire mesh needed for an area.
-Length: Length of the slab.
-Width: Width of the slab.
-Wire Mesh: Area of wire mesh.
-Roll Length: Length of the roll of wire mesh.
-Roll Width: Width of the roll of wire mesh.
-Lap: Overlap of the wire mesh. 6 inches is standard.
-Waste: Percentage to add to cover waste
-#Rolls: Number of rolls of wire mesh required. The formula is set to round to the next whole number. If you only need 5.3 rolls of mesh, the number returned will be 6.
Estimate the number of rolls of welded wire mesh you will need for an area that is 100' long, 40'8" wide. You will overlap the wire by 6". The rolls will come in total length of 50' and width of 5'. Use a 5% waste factor.
-Width: 40ft 8in
-Roll Length: 50ft
-Roll Width: 5ft
4,066.67ft² are required to cover the area, which means you need to purchase 20 rolls.
