(4). The center line of barricades between cells of the module will be located at a point half way
between adjacent ammunition storage pads. Back and end (outside) barricades will be
located at the same distance from the pads as those between the cells.
(5). Take advantage of existing natural barriers in siting the modules. If such obstructions are
used to substitute completely for a given portion of the module barricade, the protection
provided must be at least equivalent to that of the barricade.
(6). Different cell storage pad sizes may be required to accommodate different stocks.
Column 4, Figure 9, page 12 gives minimum pad sizes necessary to handle most items
in the explosive quantity given in column 1 of Figure 9, page 12. Storage pads should
be hard-surfaced, if possible, in order to minimize the effects of earth shock from an
