Subject: Re: Horizontal hood sash signage?
You want pithy?  You can try Haiku:

Hoods for prevention
noxious vapors spewing forth
closed sash protection

Or perhaps Limerick:

There is a hood in your space
Blocking noxious stuff from your face
Keep the sash closed
Prevent chems in the nose
And PIs won't get on your case

And that is why I'm a chemist and not an writer for Hallmark.

>Subject: [DCHAS-L] Horizontal hood sash signage?
>Has anyone developed signage and/or for fume hoods with horizontally moving sashes that help users understand how they are to be used? We have a collection of new hoods at Cornell that have sashes that move both horizontally and vertically and we'd like to come up with a pithy way of explaining to users how to use them effectively.
