Default Covering Question

When a manufacturer specifies 15' of covering material, is this 15 square feet or a 15 foot roll of material. The plans call for 15' twice, 3' once and two more 2' colors. This seems like a lot of material if it's linear feet. This is for a giant scale if that's any help. Thanks, Tim

Almost all plans I've seen are linear feet.
Most just tell you how many rolls.
Good Luck!

It's linear feet. An eight foot wing will probably require nearly sixteen linear feet of covering material. The fuse maybe that much again.

It always takes more material and MUCH more time than you think it should.
