We have them here in our older building (Sabin Reed), they worked great, 
but for whatever reason the architects did not utilize them in our new 

You're welcome to come over and take a look, but come soon as we're going 
to be most likely pulling them during upcoming renovations...

Does anyone have the glass-walled fume hoods (such as the TruView hoods 
made by Kewaunee) in their teaching labs?  I'm specifically interested in 
the back-to-back configuration of these in the center of the room (as 
opposed to the around the perimeter of the room layout).  We're in the 
process of planning a new chemistry building, and are considering the kind 
that have an actual glass barrier between the hoods so that the hoods are 
not dependent on one another.  Does anyone have these in their labs, and 
if so, what sorts of problems have you had with them?
Thank you,
