30' should work fine.  The IAP-225 has internal antennas and have a downtilt bias and would achieve a similar result to an IAP-224 with an external downtilt.such as the ANT-16.

The IAP-225 has internal antennas only.  I know there have been warehouse deployments with APs at 30 - 40' feet. 

 

If you want to go with external antennas you need an IAP-224 then select the appropriate 3x3 MIMO antenna from the price-list.

Yeah just pulled one out no place to add a antenne on those, Im trying to avoid changing to the 224s,

 

The deployments your talking of what type of APs were they?

I know mainly of AP-105's.  The AP-225 has better receive sensitivity than the 105 so it should perform as well or better.

We use 105's at 35-45 feet with mostly no issues, the 225s shoudl be great at 30

We have quite a few deployments of IAP225s in Warehouses at 30 to 35 feet.
