Dimensions of a sheet as seen in the above picture:
-outermost edges of pennies, left to right is: 11.70 in. (or about 11 11/16)
-top to bottom is: 11.45 in. (or about 11 9/16)
This is so the item can fit in shipping boxes with inside dimensions of 12x12 in.
Coverage: one sheet covers approximately .9 sq. ft. (or 90% of one square foot)
Gap / Space where pennies are closest to each other is about 1/16 in.
Number of pennies on each sheet: 224
That's $2.24 in pennies on each sheet. There are 14 pennies in one row and 16 staggered rows.
Weight is about 1.3 lbs. per sheet.
How many sheets to order for your project?
Divide the number of square feet you need by .9 (point 9 that is)
35 SF area needs 39 sheets (35 / .9 = 38.88 rounded up to 39)
164 SF area needs 183 sheets (164 / .9 = 182.22 rounded up to 183)
Remember that (tile) projects usually need extra material.
Each sheet has 2 layers of mesh, giving it more strength and providing for safer/easier handling and installation.
We make sure both layers of mesh follow the curved outline of each sheet, providing:
-a 'clean' interlocking of sheets with no mesh in the way.
-strength to the pennies on all 4 edges.
