Now it's got confusing. I assumed all packs were a standard size. Looking at B&Q online there is a variation from 1.2 sqm to 1.9sqm... & I thought it would be easy shopping 1 day after the bank holiday!
Take a measurement of your floor with you and get quotes for all the different products from all those lovely sales people. You know the ones that'll bend over backwards to get your money, or if they think they're getting your money.
TalYasis they are not breaking the law.
Quote "Therefore the shop means 0.92 squared and not square metres.They seem to be breaking the law here?"
0.92 what squared??? The .92m2 means what it says... coverage will be 0.92 metres by 0.92 metres.
0.92m is 92 centimetres, ain't it? so you're 64cm2 short of one square metre.
I doubt if you find they are breaking the law in any way, if you check the pack sizing then you will find that they added *Approximatley to the lable!
Miss leading, coundn't use it in a court of law, as it clearly states price/measurement and most stores give a equalivent metre mearsurement on the shelf product lable!
Another example where human perception is used, and that is with petrol or in my case diseal! at the momnet my garage is selling at 97.9p per litre, this can course agruments between me and huuby, as to me this is 98p per litre but to hubby he doesn't round it up he sees it has being 97p per litre! Who right and who's wrong?
"They seem to be breaking the law here?" - it was a question for Quickbeam to consider. I have no idea what the shop was stating; I'm just showing the point that (0.92m)2 is not the same as 0.92m2 which,when I was at school,the latter represented square metres.
So if the flooring is 1yd2 then that should be advertised as 0.836m2 !
