Abstract:

A survey was conducted to determine availability of suitable furniture and floor covering for outfitting polar camps. It was determined that lightweight, compact, durable furniture which is both comfortable and attractive is available through commercial sources. Interlocking floor tile which requires no mastic for installation and yet is quite serviceable, is also commercially available. It was concluded that commercially available furnishings have many desirable features which cannot be obtained from standard Navy sources therefore, outfitting for polar camps should not be limited to standard Navy sources.
