This will give you a place to stage and complete home repair, maintenance and hobby projects. You have many options in finding the workbench that’s right for you. You can buy one at from your local home improvement center, pick one up at a garage sale, find one in classified ads, online, or even build one yourself.

The most common materials include wire, steel, plastic, particleboard and solid wood. Again the strength of the material is governed by its thickness. Both wire and steel decking is measured in gauge while plastic, particleboard and solid wood is measured in thickness, usually in inches. It is important to note that a shelving system may only be rated for its support frame and the material used for the decking may not support the stated load capacity.

Examples of light duty storage might include storing boxes of clothing, shoes, Christmas decorations, or anything that is less than around 200 pounds. Medium duty shelving ranges anywhere from 300 to 500 pounds and might include heavier boxes, tools, paint cans, automotive fluid containers and typical garage junk. Heavy duty shelving systems range from 500 to 1500 pounds and examples are fertilizer bags, large tools, tool chests, and multiple heavy boxes. Extra heavy duty capacities range from 1500 to 10000 pounds with examples including tire racks, document storage, machine parts, engine blocks, and bulk liquids or solids storage. Anything over 10000 pounds is usually classified as bulk racks or palate racks, and they are typically found in mechanic shops, storerooms or warehouses and have capacities that can exceed 30000 pounds.

Common materials are steel, wood, solid plastic, plastic laminate, and others. Steel worktops are typical for heavy duty use. They will not become oil soaked or crack and are extremely tough. Mechanics and small engine repair shops favor this material as well as welders who might damage other work top surfaces. Disadvantages are scratching or denting if they are hit sufficiently hard. Wood tops can be made of solid hardwood like maple or made of plywood, MDF or other manufactured wood material. Hardwood worktops resist damage by sharp tools and hard blows, and is ideal for tool and die work, electrical wiring, fabric cutting and is favored by woodworkers. The drawback is once damaged it may be expensive to replace. Manufactured work surfaces like MDF or particleboard is the preferred surface for industry. They are warp and splinter proof and are highly resistant to oil and moisture. They are also less expensive than hardwood and can be easily replaced if damaged. Plastic worktops provide strength, chemical resistance, and are non-conductive. Plastic is great for electronics assembly, circuit board repair or any application that may be prone to spills. However plastic may be too slippery for woodworking and favor applications like ceramics work, pottery or anything that requires moisture or chemical resistance.

Sail makers may require very large work surfaces to spread out fabrics while jewelers and electronics repair shops may prefer smaller work tops for easy tool and parts access. The height also is important when choosing a design. Workbenches designed for standing work in general are higher than those intended for sitting. The worktop height is also dependent on the workers individual height. Many designs incorporate adjustable legs allowing for multiple heights, application types and for leveling the worktop over uneven surfaces. For some applications mobility may be required so casters are installed allowing the workbench to be moved around. The best approach is to get a workbench that is sufficiently large for your needs, has adjustable height for experimentation, and is on casters if mobility is required for your specific application.

You can use floor tiles, roll out covers, vinyl covering, linoleum, rubber mats and many more. Different types of covering are available depending on how you use your garage or how you want it to be.
Julieta Castro Almeida Garage, 2018-04-10 05:03:03. Floor Covering Garage floor coverings are not only practical, but they really make a difference in the overall appearance of your garage. When talking about coverings, there are many different types including garage floor paint, epoxy, tiles, and mats. Paint is certainly the least expensive method, but also the highest maintenance method. Paint will protect and make your garage look much better, but you will have to add a new coat probably once a year. Epoxy is similar to paint, but it’s thicker, and much more durable. It’ll give your garage floor that showroom look you find in many dealerships. Epoxy will cost you more than paint, and you’ll also have to do more preparation work, but the result will be worth the extra cost and effort. You can also opt for professional installation as most retailers offer the service. Garage floor tiles and mats are also options to consider. Tiles are typically 16 by 16 inches, and you can get them in a variety of colors. They interlock with each other to hold everything together, and they’ll make your floor look absolutely incredible. Mats come in many different shapes and sizes to fit your needs. They’re basically designed to contain automotive fluids, and all the muck your vehicle drags in with it.
