Cut size and finished size
The difference between a cut size and a finished size is the width of the hem and the width of the seam (or welding). The normal width of the hem and seam in tarpaulin confection is about 5 cm.
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).

|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%)|
