This "seems" easy enough, but can get confusing.
So, we want you to think in terms of "half
feet" or 6 inches.
Since our mats are approximately 6" long, for every foot of
sluice bed, you would need 2 cut pieces of mats.
You'll see in the example below, we are building a 3 foot long sluice
That means we need 6 sections of the mat. (3 feet times 2 = 6)
Then since our sluice is 10" wide, we multiply 6 sections times 10".
That means we need 60" of mat.
We then divide 60" by 12" and get 5 feet.
The mats are sold in 36" sections so you would need two of them.
Hope this helps.
