Looking to build a table for a dryer to fit inside a laundry closet. The table must be assembled inside the closet, as such it has three parts: two legs and a metal sheet for the table top. Here's a picture of the table outside the closet:
Here's a picture of the dryer on top of the table:
Weights, Measures, and Materials
- Dimensions: 65.5cm x 60cm
- Weight: 50kg
- Dimensions: 106cm x 63.5cm
- Material: Steel alloy
Same, but without the wireframe:
Without the table top to show the supporting flaps:
I'm concerned that the table thickness will be insufficient to support the load. A flat plane deflector calculator is useful for calculating the total load applied to center of plate, but doesn't quite tell me if the distributed load of the dryer (not a point load) will be structurally sound.
In comparison, commercial heavy gauge machine tables support over 900kg, so it looks like the design is sound.
Are these calculations reasonable? (Especially pertaining to the forces imparted by the dryer?) That is, will a 1.25cm (approx. ½") steel alloy table top outlast the dryer?
