Know what else you can't have enough of?  Data ports.  We just went live with barcoding and tracking and we had to add TONS of them in nearly every room!    

Good luck!

Hi Tasha,

How fun!  All I can say is ventilation, ventilation, ventilation.  If you
can't get proper ventilation I recommend Sentry Air Systems.  They have
portable fume extractors that use a series of carbon filters, to suck up
the xylene or formaldehyde vapors.
