The fastening system is also very important in determining the maximum load capacity of shelving. Light duty wire shelving with tubular steel uprights typically utilizes a plastic collar fastening system. Medium and heavy duty shelving systems utilize a boltless design that incorporates single or double rivets to join the front/side supports to the uprights via the punched holes. Extra heavy duty or high capacity shelving is either bolted or permanently welded together, or may utilize special high strength, boltless fastening systems designed for extra heavy duty applications.
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.
The garage floor surely is exposed to a lot of circumstances. A lot of stains and dirt can accumulate on the floor and at times, floor cracks can be made due to the weight that it carries. What can we do then to protect and beautify this part of the house?
