The shelving manufacturer will measure the load carrying capacities of each individual component and together as a shelving system to come up with a maximum shelf capacity and rating. It is very important to note that the rating given to a shelving system is based on slowly adding weight, evenly distributing it over the entire shelf. It will not support that weight if concentrated on one part of the shelf. The manufacturers rate their shelves as light duty, medium duty etc. Do not to let these ratings determine your design selection as every manufacturer rates their shelves differently and there is no commonly adopted rating system. Only careful consideration of the shelf’s intended use should be given when choosing a shelving design to prevent catastrophic structure failure.
There are a lot of things that we can do to protect and beautify our home. Sometimes, protecting and enhancing their looks can go hand in hand. One of the most used and abused parts of the house is the garage. It is where you park your motorcycle or car, fix stuff, change the oil or just hangout and drink with buddies.
A common material for pre-manufactured workbench legs and supports is steel sheet. As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace", the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is, the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge, with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied. They do this by connecting the legs together below the worktop and forming a rigid structure that helps support itself. Without additional support the workbench legs would easily fold under and collapse when weight is applied. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the person’s legs to extend under the worktop. Lower shelves may also be incorporated into the design for storage below the worktop surface, and may be partial or full sized shelves depending on its use. Though load carrying capacities are frequently not listed on workbenches, a general rule of thumb is to use a thicker gauge steel support structure for heavier duty workbench applications.
