The area of a rectangular deck is found by multiplying it's width and length. In this case, a 5.4 by 4 meter deck would require 21.6 square meters of material to cover. ------ The above is true but you asked about how many linear meters of decking you would need to cover this area. To answer this you would need to give us width dimension of the decking planks that you were thinking of using.

No fence paint does not have as much wax in it and it wont last very long before you have to paint it again. As decking has a lot of foot traffic as obviously a fence does not. Take it from me I found out the hard way. Yes deck paint is more expensive but will last a long time.

I had acrylic decking applied around my swimming pool The paint has chipped with patio furniture and the surface gets hot it's not like cool decking Is this the way acrylic decking suppose to be?

NO! I work for a swimming pool remodeling company ( I don't actually do the work ) I have researched Acrylic as well as other types of decking so that I could honestly answer questions such as yours. I have read information on line and have asked questions from our crews ( to the point of being annoying, sorry guys! )The way the paint is coming up it sounds like the deck was not prepared correctly for the Acrylic coat. It may not have been cleaned correctly or they may have applied it to existing surface material. In addition to that is the paint that is on your deck a quality Acrylic paint? Acrylic does get hot it is simply absorbing the suns heat. Kooldeck may be what you where thinking of when you thought the deck would stay cool. Acrylic decking looks very similar to Kooldeck, but it is much more easier to maintain and is much more resistant to chipping, cracking, and staining. Its also a bit more expensive and takes longer to construct. While Kooldeck is formed the same day that the concrete is poured (it needs to bond to the wet concrete), Acrylic can be applied to a dry deck making it an affordable choice for many homeowners on a budget. That is why you have to question the Acrylic you have, it is supposed to be very durable.
