I have used 7/16 for shelving many times. For the garage I cut it 16” wide screw a 2×3 to the wall studs and make a face frame of 2×3. the openings are 16” tall and the uprights are 48 oc. the osb making the shelf is screwed to the 2x at the wall and th3 horizontals of the face frame and they do just fine. Most of the stuff I store in totes so the bottom of the tote actually carries the span load but I have had one opening with four 2 hp motors in it for three years. that one opening has only sagged 1/4” front to back the rest are still flat.
