1 foot is 0.3048 meter, or a bit more than 30 cm. so, 4.88 feet is 1.487 meter, or 148.7 cm, not 176 cm. Does that answer your question?
You can use the calculation tools by converting to inches, for example 28 feet is 336 inches So enetr 168 in radius field. The result: Strut 'A' length : 58.56 is 58" and 9/16" You could convert to meteric 8500mm then convert the result back to imperial. Finally buying a tape measure with metric and imperial works great. (that's what I have)
