Best Answer

When referring to steel, the higher the gauge a steel is the thinner it will be. So 20 gauge steel is thinner than 18 gauge steel, which would suggest 18 gauge shelving is heavier than 20 gauge.

The maximum gauge is 30.

Is 18 gauge steel stronger than 16 gauge steel?

No. The larger the number, the thinner the steel. 16 gauge is the thicker of the two.


Is 14 gauge steel stronger than 10 gauge steel?

no, in metal, as the gauge goes down, the thickness, ergo the strength, goes up. so 10 gauge steel would be stronger than 14 gauge

What is the difference between 12 gauge steel and 14 gauge steel?

GAUGE , is one inch thick of steel or metal. So, take this one inch thick of steel sheet and cut it into 12 equal thickness sheets , you get a 12 gauge steel sheet. Similarly, take this one inch thick of steel sheet and cut it into 14 equal thickness sheets , you get a 14 gauge steel sheet. and so on . So, a 12 gauge steel sheet is thicker than 14 gauge , 14 is thicker than 16 , 16 is thicker than 18 and so on. Wrong!!! See my discussion on this...
