## Deck Weight Limit Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Deck Weight Limit.

DWL = DL * DW * 100

Variables:

- DWL is the Deck Weight Limit (lbs)
- DL is the deck length (ft)
- DW is the deck width (ft)

To calculate deck weight limit, multiply the deck length and width, then multiply again by 100.

## How to Calculate Deck Weight Limit?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Deck Weight Limit.

- First, determine the deck length (ft).
- Next, determine the deck width (ft).
- Next, gather the formula from above = DWL = DL * DW * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Deck Weight Limit.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

deck length (ft) = 12

deck width (ft) = 14

DWL = DL * DW * 100** **= ?
