Know what gauge the parts of the cabinet are made of such as the hinges, shelves, doors and overall body. Also the environment that the cabinet will be used in will determine how strong a cabinet is needed, with office cabinets needing less strength than industrial type cabinets. It's a general measure that you should always know what your load capacity limit is per shelf and unit before you purchase a cabinet. Office cabinets which handle files and paper only need typically 22 gauges while factories and industrial facilities may be looking at 12 to 16 gauges, dependent upon what their storing in their given situation. A typical office cabinet can hold anywhere from 150 to 200 lbs per shelf while an industrial cabinet can hold double that weight to 2,000 lbs per shelf.
Another factor is whether the cabinet comes assembled or not. Typical cabinets have an option, either assembled or not assembled. The advantages of not assembled are in the shipping of the cabinet which is always cheaper due to a lower class rate. Also if damages occur during freight only that given piece damaged needs to be shipped back instead of the whole unit. The negative on non assembled is that they are not completely welded together but bolted which will reduce the load capacity factor that a cabinet can handle.
