Enter the length, height, and width of the project into the calculator to determine the total fabric needed. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Sailrite Fabric Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the amount of fabric needed for a project using the Sailrite Fabric Calculator.

F = (L + H) * W / 36

Variables:

- F is the total fabric needed in yards L is the length of the project in inches H is the height of the project in inches W is the width of the project in inches

To calculate the total fabric needed, add the length and the height of the project, then multiply the result by the width of the project. Divide the result by 36 to convert the measurement from inches to yards.

## What is a Sailrite Fabric?

Sailrite Fabric is a high-quality material used for various applications such as upholstery, outdoor furniture, boat covers, awnings, and other marine and outdoor applications. It is known for its durability, water resistance, UV protection, and resistance to mildew and fading. Sailrite, the company that produces this fabric, offers a wide range of fabric types including Sunbrella, Phifertex, and more, each designed to withstand specific environmental conditions.

## How to Calculate Sailrite Fabric?

The following steps outline how to calculate the total fabric needed for a Sailrite Fabric using the formula: F = (L + H) * W / 36

- First, determine the length of the project in inches (L).
- Next, determine the height of the project in inches (H).
- Next, determine the width of the project in inches (W).
- Next, use the formula F = (L + H) * W / 36 to calculate the total fabric needed in yards (F).
- Finally, calculate the total fabric needed for the Sailrite Fabric.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Length of the project in inches (L) = 60

Height of the project in inches (H) = 24

Width of the project in inches (W) = 48
