We stock Merbau DeckStar decking boards in 90 and 140 mm widths at 5.4 meter lengths. This product is a manufactured natural merbau board that is finger jointed with a pre-finished merbau laminated top. As a manufactured product the boards are straight and true making laying that little bit easier. Also as they come in set lengths so the time savings in laying can easily outweigh the slightly higher costs sorting through the random lengths of natural boards. Download the attached brochure for further information.
Download our Excel Spreadsheet, “Square Meter to Lineal Meter Calculator” below or form our download page to work out how much flooring you need or follow the below instructions.
Tip. To calculate how many lineal meters of flooring or decking you need first you must work out the total square meterage required. If you have a simple square space multiply length by width and this gets you the square meters. If it’s a more complex space break it down in to rectangular sections and multiply length and width and then add the total. Once you have this follow the below simple equation.
1000 x (Width of flooring board or decking board allowing your preferred gap between boards in millimeters) = How many lineal meters per square meter. Now multiply this by the square meterage you require and you have your total. For example. Your deck is 2 meters wide and 4 meters long and you want to put down 90mm Deckstar with a 3mm gap between boards.
2 x 4 = 8 Square meters
1000 divided by 93 = 10.75 lineal meters per square meters
8 x 10.75 = 86 lineal meters
