MDS/USAR Approved Materials and Systems
3-6.1.1 The approved finish materials for the various spaces are described, by space,
in Chapter 4. A list of approved furnishings for each space is also located there.
3-22.214.171.124 Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is the preferred flooring in most rooms for
reasons of economy, durability, ease of maintenance and resistance to stains.
3-126.96.36.199 In areas where an upgraded appearance is desired, \ carpet tiles /2/ is the
normal option. \Carpet tiles /2/ aids in noise reduction and reduces fatigue when
standing for long periods. Fiber, construction, and cleanability must be considered in
selection of carpet \tiles/2/. Carpet tiles are more easily maintained and require
replacement only of damaged portions.
3-188.8.131.52 Certain areas of the building may require specialty floorings. In restrooms,
ceramic tile is normally used because of its hard surface, ease of cleaning, and stain
resistance. In the kitchen, quarry tile is used because it is impervious to water, grease
and most liquids. In physical fitness rooms, rubber flooring is used for resilience and
resistance to indentation. In NOC rooms and other rooms where electrical equipment is
in use, a static dissipative tile is used to reduce the effects of static electricity.
3-184.108.40.206 Other flooring materials such as porcelain pavers are
occasionally used when an upgraded image is desired or to
complement the facility image.
3-220.127.116.11 Entrance-type carpeting should be provided at all
major training center entrances to minimize tracking of dirt, mud
and snow into the building.
3-18.104.22.168 Paint is the preferred finish for wall surfaces. The paints used in the facility
should be high quality, durable and easily cleaned. Epoxy paint should be used in wet
areas such as toilet rooms.
