This calculator is designed to give an approximate quantity for all materials needed for a drop ceiling installation. While we assume regular dimensions, you can estimate irregular dimensions fairly well.
Measure the length of the room (at the longest point if irregular) and the width of the room (at the widest point if irregular).
Enter the values; if you are using 2 x 4 tiles, you may want to try the entries both ways to see if the fit is better one way or the other.
Enter the distance from the ceiling you are covering to the support point of the drop ceiling (if irregular, use the average distance, though that compromises the individual tie wire length).
Click on Calculate for the values returned.
