Hello to all,

If I remember correctly... if you are venting a B2 safety cabinet to the outside you have to duct to the roof and have a charcoal filter and a hepa filter system on the roof.

	Hi Betsy,

Watch out with venting a hood to outside: Our Lab Operations people 
tell me that for example in New York state this is illegal. So you'd 
need to check regulations first....

Kind regards,

Jan Hendrikx
