REQUIRED DISTANCES FOR CLASS/DIVISION 1.4 ITEMS
Table 5-16 in TM 9-1300-206 lists items included in class/division 1.4 (moderate-fire, no-blast items).
Table 5-17 is used to determine minimum QD requirements for such items. An extract of Table 5-16 is
shown in Figure 2-38, and Table 5-17 is shown in Figure 2-39. Notice that the pounds of explosives
column in Table 5-17 shows no limits. This means that you need not be concerned with the NEW of
the items. Class/division 1.4 items present a moderate fire hazard, and are the least hazardous of the
As an example of a class/division 1.4 problem, assume that you need to know the IBD for 5.56-
millimeter ball, small arms ammunition. First, check the extract of Table 5-16 (shown in Figure 2-38 on
page 2-31) to verify the class and division of the items. Then go to Table 5-17 (shown in Figure 2-39).
Since there is no NEW limit, simply read across the table to the "Inhabited building" column. The IBD is
REQUIRED DISTANCES FOR CLASS/DIVISION 6.1 ITEMS
There are no QD tables given in TM 9-1300-206 for class/division 6.1 items (toxic and incapacitating
chemicals) because they are not explosive hazards. Class/division 6.1 includes chemical group A
items and some chemical group B items. These chemical groups are not
