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 the pennies are closest to each other is about 1/16 in.
Number of pennies on each sheet: 224
There are 14 pennies in one row and 16 staggered/offset rows.
Weight is about 1.3 - 1.4 lbs per sheet.
The 224 pennies on each sheet make up about 76.32% of the surface/area while the spaces between pennies (future grout areas) take about 23.68%
Each sheet has 2 layers of mesh, giving it more strength and providing for safer/easier handling and installation.
We make sure the mesh follows the very curved outline of each sheet and does not stick out at edges to interfere with the next sheet at installation time.
Also, the mesh completely covers all pennies that are on the 4 edges the same way as it covers the rest of the them as seen in the picture. That's one of the big details pointing to quality manufacturing of penny tile sheets in general.
