I am building wall-mounted shelves for my electronics lab. These will basically be pieces of MDF supported by Spur Steel-Lok uprights and brackets, similar to what the picture below shows.
I can figure out the load bearing capacity of the supports from Spur's literature.
But what about the MDF? Given the thickness and the depth of the material, as well as the weight of the expected load, how do I compute the maximum spacing between uprights?
P. S. In case this somehow matters, I am specifically looking at MF (Melamine Faced) MDF.
