“We’ve always encouraged anyone in the United States contemplating a deck design to refer to this document because it’s so important to safety,” said AWC Vice President of Technology Transfer John “Buddy” Showalter. “There is a large market for information on good deck design in other countries as well, so we’re expanding its availability to Central and South America and the Caribbean basin. Offering the DCA 6 in Spanish domestically will make it even more widely accessible and used since so many involved in U.S. design and construction speak English as a second language.”

DCA 6 was specifically developed to promote good, code-compliant deck design and construction for safe outdoor structures.
