Standard Material Thickness Charts – Standard Sheet Metal Thickness For Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals
What are sheet metal gauges?
Gauges are used to specify the thickness of a sheet of metal. These units are neither standard of metric and are completely independent of those typical measurement systems. Keeping a gauge conversion chart nearby is an easy way to determine the actual thickness of a sheet of metal in inches or millimeters. For example, 14 gauge stainless-steel is .07812 inches thick. The gauge number 14 holds no relevance to the actual measurements.
