The COST PER M² CAST is the cost of the mould(s) needed to cast Product Units that would cover 1 m² in a single cast.
The Comparative Cost Per m² Cast makes allowance for grouting as per the Modular Grouting Width. This is useful for comparing the mould cost for large versus small Product Shapes from a single Modular Shape Group .
In practice, smaller units used without their larger siblings are often abutted during installation, yielding tighter grouting than shown in their Modular Shape Groups. When the installer plans to install the Product Units in this way, we need to calculate the Realistic Cost Per m² Cast.« Back to Glossary Index
