(b) The total number of people for whom plumbing fixtures are provided.

(1) AR 40-5 specifies these standards for ventilation:
. Heating and ventilation influence troop health and comfort.
Barracks are ventilated to dilute unpleasant body odors, tobacco
smoke, airborne organisms, and dust and reduce the temperature and
humidity during warm weather. No amount of over ventilation can
compensate for overcrowding (may produce harmful chilling).
Minimum outside air supply normally required during the heating
season is 600 to 900 cubic feet per hour per man in the barracks. In
non-mechanically ventilated quarters, windows should be partially
opened (except during extremely cold weather) when individuals are
sleeping. Local agreements should be reached between the
installation engineer and Medical Authority to achieve maximum health
benefits with minimum loss of heating equipment efficiency. Policies
for installation and design of air conditioning, evaporative cooling,
dehumidification, and mechanical ventilation equipment and systems
are contained in AR 420-54.
(2) Remember, the barracks must be ventilated. However, ventilating
CANNOT compensate for overcrowding. The minimum outside air supply during the
heating season is 600 to 900 cubic feet per hour per person in the barrack.
e. Bed Arrangements.
(1) AR 40-5 specifies these requirements for bed arrangements:
Bed arrangements. Beds will be arranged to place as much distance
as possible between respiratory tracts of persons sleeping in adjacent
bunks. One method is to have individuals sleep head to foot. Double
bunking is permitted provided allotted space meets requirement of
(2) Remember, the beds are arranged to maximize distance among people
sleeping side by side. This is done to keep as much space as possible between the
respiratory tracts of adjacent sleepers.
