Thanks for the input, but this area sees no water and the particle board is in excellent condition.
I measured the amount of deflection (movement) between two floor joists with a 200lb load applied. I then divided the distance between the joists (16") by the amount of deflection. 0.020 inches of deflection on 16 inches equals deflection factor of 800)
