Flammable  Warehouse This type of warehouse is used for the storage of highly combustible materials such as oils and paints.  They  are  built  of  noncombustible  materials and have firewalls with a 4-hour fire resistance rating. Their main dependence for fire protection is placed on an automatic deluge-type sprinkler system connected to an adequate water supply and an alarm reporting system. OPEN  STORAGE  SPACE Open storage space is an improved or unim- proved area designated for use in storing material. Open  improved  storage  space  is  an  open  area  that has been graded and hard surfaced or prepared with a topping of some suitable material to per- mit   effective   materials-handling   operations. Although  covered  storage  is  preferred  and necessary for most supplies, materials that are not readily  susceptible  to  damage  by  adverse  weather conditions can be accommodated in open storage. Figure  7-5  illustrates  a  typical  improved  open storage  space. Open  unimproved  storage  space  is  an  open area that has not been surfaced for storage pur- poses.  This  method  of  storage  is  comparatively inexpensive to operate and maintain and is nor- mally   used   for   items   that   are   unaffected   by weather conditions. The restriction placed on the use  of  materials-handling  equipment  is  one  of  the principal  disadvantages  of  this  type  of  area. WAREHOUSING For this discussion of warehousing, the focus will be on those things that the SK normally has some  control  over;  that  is,  the  actual  arrangement of  the  stores.  Factors  in  warehousing  such  as design,  size,  and  interior  characteristics  of  the warehouse are usually permanent and cannot be changed  without  extensive  alteration. Planning the Storage Layout Storage  space  is  the  basic  resource  of  any supply  department.  It  is  important,  therefore,  that the  use  of  this  storage  space  should  be  as  efficient as  possible.  This  can  be  obtained  only  by  planning of  storage  space.  Some  of  these  plans  are  ex- plained  as  follows. SIMILARITY  STORAGE.—  The basic prin- ciple  of  similarity  storage  is  that,  as  far  as possible,  like  items  should  be  stored  together.  For example, all items in group and class 7510 would be stored in the same area; or to take it a step fur- ther, all items in group 75. This method of storage has   some   obvious   drawbacks.   It   does   not recognize that some items move faster than others and  should  be  convenient  to  the  breakout  area, and  it  also  makes  little  allowance  for  the  size difference  in  items  within  a  group.  Similarity storage is more often used by supply centers and depots  where  the  number  of  warehouses  would allow this type of storage to be used on a prac- tical basis.
