The various gauges of sheet metal range from the thinnest 38-gauge (0.0063”/0.16 mm thick) foil to the thickest 7-gauge (0.5”/12.70 mm thick) plate steel.

How strong is 2mm steel?
2mm is about 16 Ga, I fabricated a lot of light railings and other items from 16 Ga. steel of about 30 kips in strength. In a column it is quite strong but if the column is 30 feet tall and the square tube is only 1″ it will collapse with out much weight on it.
