Wireless redundancy with commercial grade router/AP

Need to provide 24/7 wireless connection for 30 plus users
So here are my questions;
1-      What hardware router or AP you suggest that is a commercial grade and won’t be overheating, or getting overwhelmed with traffic.
2-      Should we buy a 2nd similar one for redundancy, and how we get them to do the automatic failover?

You're going to be hard pressed to get any single standard AP that will support 30+ users at one time.
You might want to look into specialty high-density AP's like Aruba or Xirrus arrays, or Trapeze

how about having 2 that can support 15-20, and configure a 3rd to pickup the slack?
what hardware you recommend, and how to configure?

Netgear Wndap350 Does 64. I have two at the office supporting 50 people. Almost everyone has an iPhone and iPad and about 20 use wifi laptops pretty much constantly. No problems.

I saw these reviews on newegg for the Wndap350 , and they say it is flaky with connections!

I really need a reliable AP otherwise it is a problem in our environment.
