Order, Options and Requirements

Q. Do you sell ETL listed paint booths?

A. Yes, many of our standard paint booths are available as ETL approved and listed, and are noted on our Web site. Some areas require ETL listed paint booths and we offer competitively priced ETL listed paint booths.

Q. Do your paint booths meet "code"?

A. Our paint booths are manufactured and designed for code approval. Our models are manufactured from materials that comply with the National Board of Fire Underwriters, as recommended by the 2011 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA33) requirements. Additional requirements may include automatically actuated 'flags' that initiate the fire suppression system in case of fire, having an audible alarm system, performing emergency shutdowns, buying the booth from a certified manufacturer, installation by licensed contractor and having the booth inspected.

Our spray booths are also built to comply with OSHA guidelines. We recommend checking with your local authorities (fire marshal) as to any local electrical or fire code requirements. Our electrical components are UL-listed .

For more information on paint booth codes and regulations & spray booth fire protection standards, visit our blog.

Q. Do I need a fire suppression system?

A. The requirements vary by location. We sell fire suppression systems at competitive prices. These optional systems may be included in your financing or leasing, if needed.

Q. How much airflow does my paint booth require?

A. OSHA and NFPA have minimum airflow requirements in order to lower the concentration of flammable materials. More current codes require four air exchanges per minute for wet or solvent-based paints. Our paint booths are designed with four air exchanges. When purchasing your paint booth, be sure the size of the booth will allow for adequate airflow. For more information visit our paint booth blog post "How much airflow does my paint booth require?".

Q. What is not included in your paint booths?

A. Fluorescent light bulbs are not included because they are prone to breakage in shipping. Exhaust ductwork is only available as an add-on component. Because wiring codes vary widely, we do not include electrical wiring kits (starter, switches, conduit, etc.) with our paint booths. It is more cost effective for our customers to have a licensed electrician provide the necessary components.

A. Ground-level ozone refers to the environmental impact caused by the paint booth process. Each state's requirements vary. You can review your state by searching online for "spray booth + ozone + (your state)".

Ozone emissions are reduced by:

    - selecting paints/solvents with a low volatile organic compound
    - mixing as little paint as required for the job
    - keeping the paint storage clean
    - changing paint booth exhaust filters
    - eliminating used rags & paint cans
    - ensuring proper maintenance of your paint booth
    - adequately training employees.

Installation of the Paint Booth

Q. Explain paint booth exhaust/duct work requirements.

A. An optional exhaust/ductwork system is recommended to exhaust fumes outside your building. This is optional with the purchase of our paint booth. Our exhaust/duct work packages provide straight ducting (no elbows), roof mounting and a weather head.

Q. Can your paint booth be used outside?

A. No. Our paint booths are manufactured for an enclosed area away from the weather.

Q. How will I assemble and install my paint booth?

A. Each paint booth comes with assembly instructions and labeled panels for easy assembly and installation. Self-installation typically takes two days. You will need a licensed electrician to wire and connect your power source. Alternatively, we can recommend a professional installer in your area upon request.
