Approximate thickness in fractions of an inch.
10 gauge steel thickness.
Gague ga is a length measurement unit for diameters originating in north america and belongs to the browne sharpe metering system.
Ten gauge galvanized steel is 0 1382 inch thick and 10 gauge stainless steel is 0 1406 inch thick.

Thus a 10.
For other materials such as aluminum and brass the thicknesses will be different.
Sheet metal thickness gauges for steel are based on a weight of 41 82 pounds per square foot per inch of thickness.
This is known as the manufacturers standard gage for sheet steel.
Approximate thickness in decimal parts of an inch.
The values differ because gauge is a measurement of weight not thickness.
For the purpose of securing uniformity the following is established as the only standard gauge for sheet and plate iron and steel in the united states of america namely.
The manufacturers standard gauge for sheet steel is based on an average weight of 41 82 pounds per square foot per inch thick.
Since ferrous and non ferrous metals of the same gauge have different thicknesses different metal gauge tools are used to measure ferrous and non ferrous metals.
The equivalent thicknesses differ for each gauge size standard which were developed based on the weight of the sheet for a given material.
For example a sheet of galvanized steel with a gauge thickness of 10 is 0 1382 inch whereas 10 gauge standard steel measures 0 1345 inch and stainless steel measures 0 0120 inch.
A gauge conversion chart can be used to determine the actual thickness of sheet metal in inches or millimeters.
Gague are used to specify the thickness of a metal sheet.

Sheet metal gauge size chart gauge or gage sizes are numbers that indicate the thickness of a piece of sheet metal with a higher number referring to a thinner sheet.
As the gauge number increases the material thickness decreases.
For example 18 gauge steel according to a gauge conversion chart is 0 0478 inch or 1 214 millimeter.
