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.
One of the most satisfying aspects of carrying out maintenance tasks on your vehicle - aside from saving money on expensive garage bills - is that you are able to get an understanding of how the car works, and the more you understand about the vehicle, the easier it is to put things right in the event of a breakdown.
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.
