I have a 1m2 (10ft2) object. This object weighs 400kg (880 pounds). I would like to spread the load over 2.5m2 (25ft2).

I'm wondering what type of wood/panel and how thick should that wood be. Are there any calculators?

I've been thinking about plywood or laminated wood, but don't know how thick these should be!

  • Is this going to be a shelf on the wall or a stand or what? – Phaelax z Jul 15 '19 at 16:27
  • @Phaelaxz it is going to actually be a vocal booth! 1.2m x 1.2m but will be standing on a small 1m x 1m plate! – Karl Morrison Jul 16 '19 at 10:42
