Lineal Metre Factor Calculator
This calculator can be used to calculate the lineal metre factor for a board with a certain width.
The lineal metre factor can be used to calculate the lineal metres of boards needed to cover an area.
To get the lineal metre factor for a board you need to know the exposed face value of a board in millimetres.
Example on how to use the lineal metre factor (lmf)
Enter 132 in the calculator.
The result: lmf for this board = 7.576
Wall length = 3.6 metres
Wall height = 2.4metres
Square metres of wall = 2 * 3 = 8.64sq M
Multiply this result by the lmf: 8.64 * 7.576 = 65.4566
To cover the wall you will need 65(rounded) lineal metres of board.
