Where do you start when buying a paint booth? The following steps will guide you through the process:
1. Check the paint booth supplier. While you can plan independently, it is helpful to look at booth suppliers and their distribution options early in the buying process as they will provide you with guidelines on how to determine size, airflow and characteristics. You can also browse online to get information about the best paint booth manufacturer in CA.
2. Determine the best size for your cabin. Decide on the type and size of product you want to paint to ensure there is enough space and airflow through your future paint booth. For industrial and manufacturing applications, best practice is to identify the largest object you need to draw and then add at least 2 feet for height, 5 feet for width, and 5 feet for depth.
3. Understand your process. The different processes and applications will affect the type of paint booth you need. For liquid applications, dry filter paint booths are typically used where exhaust fans draw paint residue into the filter bank (on the wall of the chamber or in the floor opening) and trap it.
4. Define your space. You do not only need to consider the dimensions of the work inside the booth, but also the space around the outside of the booth. Keep in mind that add-on products such as paint mixers and hazardous storage buildings will require additional space.
5. Determine the type of spray you need. Paint booths range from cases small enough to paint a cellphone case to large enough to paint a C-17 military cargo plane.
