  • Springs = Row Length ÷ 10. Round up to a whole number. Multiply by the number of rows required.
  • Ferrules = Row Length ÷ 5. Round up to a whole number. Multiply by the number of rows required.
  • Cable = Row Length X Rows Required.
  • Note: for all outside rows (any row along an outside edge). Double spring, ferrule and cable totals to allow for both upper and lower wire installation.
