2¼" x .113 Pull-out Resistance into Southern Yellow Pine averaged **533.27 lbs per BNS 

Decking Example: Installing a 12' Deck Board on 16" centered joist with 2 BNS per joist: 533 lbs x 20 BNS = 10,660 lbs of Pull-out Resistance on this one 12' Board.

A 12’ long x 5.5” board is 5.5 sq. ft.  10,660/5.5 sq. ft = 1,938 lb/sq. ft. 
Using a safety factor of 3, the stated capacity would be 646 lb/sq. ft.
