A running meter (abbreviation: running meter, running meter, running meter or running meter) is a unit of measurement that is used to measure goods that can be purchased by the meter (or running goods, continuous goods, rolls) and have a constant cross-section . It also serves as a length specification for constant elements, regardless of their other dimensions .


The unit of measurement is to be equated with the meter . The conversion into area dimensions is done by multiplying it with the width of the goods, in room dimensions by multiplying it with the cross-sectional area.
