Would like to hear some thoughts about placement of LAFW in a buffer room. The proposed space is 9'x9'. Being that this is very small, can you see/think of any issue using two 4' LAFW (Baker's Edgegard) facing each other? I am unsure if I should be concerned with the unidirectional airflow generated by these two hoods blowing towards one another. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I believe (but am confirming with Jim Wagner, engineering control guru) that your setup will not be a problem because of the airflow velocity. I would be concerned from a worker comfort perspective because a 4' Baker LAFW is 34" deep. If they directly face one another, you will only have about 3 feet in the middle. This is not enough room. Have you considered put them at 90 degree angle to one another (e.g. North wall, West wall) ? This will give you a lot of room in the center of your space to move product and people. Hope this helps.
