Officer & Chief Staterooms
Officer & Chief Staterooms will have 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 curtain here since they are the same size.
E-6 & Below
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 curtain here since they are the same size.
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.”
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.
