Order Considerations

Installation

This product can be mechanically installed. To calculate pieces required, multiply the wall length, in feet, by 0.338. This will give you the number of pieces required per layer. Then multiply this by the number of layers to determine total quantity required. Please note that 0.338 is the multiplier used for both the standard and coping units. For information on wall heights, consult the product installation guide and technical specifications. Check your local building codes and consult a professional engineer when required
