  • Drawers steel vs alluminium advice

    I am looking for alluminium vs steel double drawers but I am not sure if 220-250 kg max load for alluminium drawers will be restrictive. How much load are people puttring in drawers. Will 250Kg be enough?

    Its also about what you put on top of them. At max load I carry about 120Kg of tools and spares in my lower two drawers. And about 60-100Kg of fridge, food, camping gear, recovery gear etc on top.

    Commonly available aluminium sheet metal is too soft, and I haven't seen any aluminium alloy sheet metal in use, except on aircraft. There is also not a lot of difference in weight of a plywood drawer system and steel one. Its just easier to fabricate them out of plywood.
    Steel weights 7.8Kg/litre and plywood weighs around 0.9Kg/litre. The builders typically use either 1mm galvanised sheet steel and some wood, or 12-16mm plywood sheet plus the usual slides and handles. So a plywood system can be heavier than a steel one!

      It is a good point to check what this load rating means - content weight in drawers only or drawers content plus load on a top of drawers frames. If it is a latter then it is an obvious choice for steel one.
