How Many Strips Do You Need?
The table below will show you how many strips you will need to cover your opening (regardless of the height). For instance, a 10' wide opening using 8" strips with 50% overlap would need 20 strips to cover the area. If you had a 20' opening (which is wider than what is on this chart) you would take 20 strips x 2 = 40 strips.
Choosing The Correct Strips and Overlap
