I usually put a wood dress edge of 1/4" or 1/2" thick on the face edge of the shelf or maybe a thicker wider piece as a stiffener maybe even 3/4" x 1 1/2" like I did for shop cabinets. Also if the cabinets are floor to ceiling I usually go about 1/2 way down the height & put in a non movable shelf with a 3/4" x 1 1/2" face frame rail on the front. Like this cabinet the shelf just below the glue bottles & spray cans is a solid shelf with a face frame rail on the front.
