The Z bar weight limit will depend on if you hit studs or not. A 16” piece with pre drilled holes will likely miss all studs.

If you want to use them, ignore the predrilled holes, and drill where the studs are and hit everyone. Buy the longer lengths and run them the full length. if you do that, weight will never be an issue.

Kind of a waste of money though, as you can acomplish an even stronger system with a hardwood french cleat.

And by the way, “torque and strains of human interaction” is an awesome quote and will forever be saved in my repertoire. :)
