Hoping someone can help me out with this. This year part of the house is going to be a quarantine area and I'm trying to source some polythene for the walls and doorways. So now I am stuck because when I look online to order some they start talking about gauge and microns which means nothing to me. Any one built anything like this before? Can I get some tips on the correct gauge please, please, please

They are talking about thickness. I would go to a building supply place a look at the sheeting they sell and work out what thickness you want. The thicker stuff is usually dearer. Once you know what you want, do a little research before you buy.

Here in the states working with both metric and English with material thicknesses.
1/8" or 125 thousands or .125 or 3 mm r
1mm or about 40 thousands or .040 or 13/32" some may say 40 guage )
Paper stock .006 or 6 gauge to 6 thousands
Wire .120" is 11 ga (totally different)
NOT sure if I helped
