Subject: ADA Compliant Fume Hoods

Have any of you had experience with ADA compliant fume hoods being used by non-wheelchair bound personnel?  I have concerns that th e shorter height (floor to work surface) of an ADA compliant hood will be a problem w hen used by people who would stand in front of the hood to work.  Is there merit to my concern?

Thanks for any input that you can provide.  Pleas e feel free to reply directly to asimpson**At_Symbol_Here**
