Enter the dead load capacity (kg/m^2) and the live load capacity (kg/m^2) into the Scaffolding Load Capacity Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Scaffolding Load Capacity.

## Scaffolding Load Capacity Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Scaffolding Load Capacity.

**SWL = DL + 4*LL**

Variables:

- SWL is the Scaffolding Load Capacity (kg/m^2)
- DL is the dead load capacity (kg/m^2)
- LL is the live load capacity (kg/m^2)

## How to Calculate Scaffolding Load Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Scaffolding Load Capacity.

- First, determine the dead load capacity (kg/m^2).
- Next, determine the live load capacity (kg/m^2).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SWL = DL + 4*LL.
- Finally, calculate the Scaffolding Load Capacity.
- 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.

dead load capacity (kg/m^2) = 300

live load capacity (kg/m^2) = 500

SWL = DL + 4*LL** **= ?
