Cutting Allowance & Wastage


What Cutting Allowance / Wastage Factor should I allow – We recommend that you allow a 4% wastage factor for the 500/7, 500/ESD and 500/10 tiles and a 6% wastage factor for the 500/6 and 500/5 tiles. To make your calculations 100% correct measure to the nearest 25 centimeters on the 500/7, 500/ESD and 500/10 tiles and 50 centimeters on the 500/6 and 500/5 tiles.

For example:

500/7, 500/ESD and 500/10 tiles – Room dimensions 6.1m x 3.7m – Calculate as 6.25m x 3.75m

500/6 and 500/5 til – Room dimensions 6.1m x 3.7m – Calculate as 6.5m x 4m
