Officer & Chief Stateroom Rack Curtains
Officer & Chief Stateroom bunks can either be “2-High” or “3-High.” If a bunk is “2-High” then it will have a rack curtain at the foot of the bed as well as the length. If this is the case, we recommend purchasing the “Stateroom Foot Blackout Rack Curtain 2-High.” If the bunks are “3-High” then you will only need the “3-High” rack curtains. Please note that our “3-High” rack curtains will not be deep enough to use on a “2-High” rack. If your bunk has a built in fan, you will want to purchase the additional “3-High Fan Notch Blackout Curtain” which conveniently attaches to the fan to block any light caused by its presence.
E-6 & Below Rack Curtains
E-6 & Below will often bunk in a shared space with racks stacked either “3-High” or “4-High.” Both types of racks provide the same amount of space. To make it easy for you, you cannot choose the wrong rack curtain here since they are the same size. If your bunk has a built in fan, you will want to purchase the additional “3-High Fan Notch Blackout Curtain” which conveniently attaches to the fan to block any light caused by its presence.
Still not sure which rack curtains you need?
Type of Rack
We designed our rack curtains based on the dimensions of the rack frame. A “2-High” refers to two racks stacked on top of each other with an open space at the foot of each rack. A “3-High” is divided into three and does not have an open space at the foot of the rack. A “4-High” measures the same as a “3-High.” You may have a fan attached to your rack as well. Our fan notch rack curtain can be attached to the fan regardless of the side it’s on to help keep the light out.
The racks found in E-6 and below berthing spaces are often narrower because of the storage locker “coffin” beneath the mattress. Each of the racks in the E-6 and below berthing spaces are more than likely the “3-High” or “4-High.” The racks found in Officer/Chief staterooms don’t have the storage locker.
In most cases, Marines and Sailors will be in the berthing space designated for their rank. E-6 and below will be in the enlisted berthing. Officers and Chiefs are in staterooms. Stateroom racks can vary from “2-High” to “3-High” without a storage “coffin” located beneath the mattress. Officers that are an “O4” and above will usually share a room with one other or have a room to themselves and will not require any rack curtains.
