4′ x 8′ Aluminum Alloy Sheet

Why 4’x8′?

Aluminum sheets may face the risk of being damaged during transportation and handling when the size of the sheet is too large; and aluminum plates need to be cut again for production in many industries. Therefore, 4’x8′ aluminum sheet metal becomes the standard size gradually.

Just like 4×8 aluminum sheet, 5′ x 10′ is also a common size for aluminum sheet metal.
