Default Industrial strength wireless??

Hey guys,

My lumbermill is implementing a brand new "line" (as we call it) that has just about everything computerized (almost every individual motor on it has an IP address associated with it) we would like to be able to have our electricians take out their laptops to any part of the line and be able to access the line's network with a laptop and wireless connection. Thing is that there is a lot of steel in and around the line and the hub where everything comes in... I was wondering if you had any suggestions on a real good wireless AP for this situation as I doubt your run of the mill Linksys WAP might not cut it.

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (Overclocked to 3300+)
ASUS K8V-Deluxe
1GB PC3200 DDR
2x200GB Seagate SATA RAID 0
BFG 6800GT OC w\\128MB Ram
2x 19\" Samsung 930B LCDs

run of the mill Linksys WAP
No pun intended of course

Sorry I am not much help, I just found that funny, but what I thought was you run repeaters to spread a large area like that.
