## What is 4’×8′ aluminum sheets ?

4’×8′ aluminum sheet is the size of the aluminum sheet. Some people will call 4’x8′, 48″x96″. This is just the difference in length units.

The single quote ” ‘ “refers to the foot. 4’and 8’ respectively indicate 4 foot and 8 foot。

### Let’s calculate how big 4’*8′ is：

1 foot=304.8 mm,

4′ = 4*304.8 mm = 1219 mm,

8′ = 8*304.8 mm = 2438mm

4’x8′ aluminum sheet indicates the width of aluminum sheet plate × length = 4 foot × 8 foot = 1219mm × 2438mm.

4’x8′ aluminum sheet refers to the use of different alloys of aluminum alloy as the base material, cut into 4’x8′ (1219mm × 2438mm) size small plate, the thickness is customized according to customer needs
