Hello,

We're turning our garage into a workshop and have bought some twinslot shelving from Wickes to hold wood. My parter isn't convinced that our single skin garage wall will be able to hold the weight, so I was wondering whether there's any guides or calculations I could do to check how much weight I can put onto the shelves?

We'll be using a 4x 1m height twinslot uprights across 2m (so every 50cm) and will have 2 shelves with 4x 27cm brackets holding each shelf. This is starting to sound a bit like a school maths question, but how what weight do you think I could put on each shelf bearing in mind it's on a single skin garage wall?

Many thanks for your help in advance :)

Bryony

Any reason you can't go for floor standing shelves?

Hi Rorschach,

It's just a single garage and we're making room for wood storage/a workshop/a table tennis table and our sports gear so along the top of the wall would keep below it free.

It depends on what your garage is made of and how it is supported. If you are not sure, then don't do it, but as you "need" shelving have floor standing, but with "long legs"

Picture may help?

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?
