It is important to design a shelving system around the maximum possible scenario. As an example, based on the criteria above an average homeowner may want to choose medium to heavy duty shelving for the garage that may include storing fertilizer or cement bags, tools, paint cans or cases of oil. A "Gear Head" might choose heavy duty or extra heavy duty shelving allowing engine part storage, tires and heavy shop tools. Whatever the required storage capacity is, there will be a shelving system to suit the application. When in doubt you should contact your supplier and discuss your application with them. They can help determine what capacities, sizes, and styles suit your needs and can provide multiple options that you may not have considered.
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.
Workbench size, height and mobility are also very important and vary by application. 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.
