The Difference between a Cut size and a Finished size
When a tarpaulin’s size is mentioned, it can either be a cut-size or a finished size. Both these terms are part of the tarp-industry jargon. Whether the size is a cut-size or a finished-size, we will mention it when you discuss with our sale people.
Cut size is the gross size before fabrication. The finished size will be smaller (-/- 2 x 5 cm hem , -/- number of seam x 5 cm)
Finished size is the nett size after fabrication. The cut size will be bigger (+/+ 2 x 5 cm hem, +/+ number of seam x 5 cm).
Cut size：4,00 m x 6,00 m 24,00 m²
Finished size：3,85 m x 5,90 m Surface 22,72 m² (-/- 5,3%)
Finished size：4,00 m x 6,00 m 24,00 m²
Cut size：4,15 m x 6,10 m 25,32 m² (-/- 5,3%)
Tolerance on all mentioned sizes is +/- 2%
In the most of the case, the size tolerance of the tarpaulin cut size and finished size is about 3%-5%
