portable versus static ducted

Hi Guys
We are having 2 classrooms modified to labs ,I asked for ducted fume hoods.Came back yesterday that the 6th form studio lab will be outfitted without a fume hood and the large lab will not have services at this time apart from teachers bench ,with a portable fume hood????:vampire::vampire::poo:


Don't lick, smell or touch it and you won't die.
I'd say for A-level chemistry students to have at least one portable fume cupboard available at the minimum or in an ideal situation a ducted one, we have about 4 mobile units and 1 ducted in the prep room but we only teach up to KS4 and the mobile ones hardly get used due to the limited need for them during practicals.
