How Much Glass Will You Need? Caution – on line calculators usually lead you to purchasing more glass than you actually need. You need one 1 pound bag of glass for every 16 square inches you want to cover at approximately 1 1/2″ to 2″ deep. Rectangle or Square Calculate how many square inches you need by multiplying the width by depth for a rectangle or square. If its a fireplace the opening width will probably be wider than the back, so average the two widths and multiply by the depth.
For example; the front width is 36″ the back width is 30″, so the average width is 33″. Multiply by the width of 33″ by the depth, say 22″ = 726 square inches. Divide 726 by 16 = 45 pounds. You will need 9 bags of glass at 5 pounds per bag for a total of 45 pounds. CircleIf the space is a circle, determine the radius (half the diameter). Square the radius (r x r) and multiply by 3.14 to determine the square inches. For example the circle is 24″ round so the radius is 12″. Multiply 12 x 12 x 3.14 = 452 square inches. Divide 452 by 16 = 28 pounds. You will need 6 bags of glass at 5 pounds per bag or a total of 30 pounds, Pickmygasrange.com.
