The reason behind this is because standard distances between wall studs are 16 inches on center. It can be very easy to not have a sud nearby at the point where a shelf support is required. It is never a good idea to rely on basic drywall anchors to support shelving and clothing rods without proper support. Over time, the consistent weight of clothing and whatever is usually shoved on to upper shelves can easily cause the drywall to weaken and give way.
Material of Cabinet. Storage Cabinets come in various materials with metal being the most popular due to its durability. When purchasing a metal cabinet, make sure the gauge thickness is adequate...remember that the lower the number is of the gauge the denser the metal. Typical office storage cabinets are 20 to 22 in gauge while industrial type storage cabinets that have higher load capacities have gauges of 12 to 16. A typical cabinet will have a door that is slighter lower in gauge than the overall body of the storage cabinet.
