We used a similar system several years ago and liked it very much BUT we
were forced to discontinue use because we could not provide the
ventilation which our campus OSHA officer said was required.
Unfortunately we could not find any proof that special ventilation was NOT
required (the difficulty of proving a negative!).  If you have information
about a system which specifically doesn't require special ventilation, I'd
love to know about it.  If not, just be sure that you are aware of the
potential problem.
