Shelving units in their basic form consist of a frame and decking material. The frame can be constructed out of a variety of materials with the most common being steel sheet. 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+ material called foil and thicker 8+ material called plate. The steel sheet is formed into structural members with various shapes for different applications and load carrying capacities. The capacities can range anywhere from a couple hundred pounds to 30,000 pounds or more.
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.
