The allowable unit stresses for preservative-treated wood need not be adjusted for treatment, but are subject to other adjustments.
The allowable unit stresses for fire-retardant-treated wood, including fastener values, shall be developed from an approved method of investigation that considers the effects of anticipated temperature and humidity to which the fire-retardant-treated wood will be subjected, the type of treatment and the redrying process. Other adjustments are applicable except that the impact load duration shall not apply.
The capacity of lumber decking arranged according to the patterns described in Section 2304.9.2 shall be the lesser of the capacities determined for flexure and deflection according to the formulas in Table 2306.1.4.
ALLOWABLE LOADS FOR LUMBER DECKING

|3-inch and 4-inch decking|
- σb = Allowable total uniform load limited by bending.
σΔ = Allowable total uniform load limited by deflection.
- d = Actual decking thickness.
l = Span of decking.
Fb' = Allowable bending stress adjusted by applicable factors.
E' = Modulus of elasticity adjusted by applicable factors.
