It’s early Wednesday morning and I am just settling into my desk, big ole’ cup of coffee in my hand and looking out the window hoping I will soon see a few snow flakes. As I start to sort through emails and check voicemails, I hear a big BRRRRRRRRING! It’s my computer letting me know that a customer is online and wanting to chat!
So, I start my morning assisting a customer on our paint-booths.com site looking to get a heated booth. In this cold weather, I can’t blame him! We chatted for a few, and were able to get him a quote quickly, while we both had our coffee.
We have recently added the “Live Chat” option to our web sites (www.paint-booths.com and www.toolsusa.com). Don’t worry- it’s not Skype or a video chat — we can’t see you sitting there in your PJ’s (thank goodness). While we are still getting used to communicating with our customers online, it’s great for our customers to quickly ask a question or request a shipping quote. We also love it when our customer’s just stop by to say hi. Look for the Bright Aqua Button on the left side of our site. (See Image) Continue reading Let’s Chat ….. Online!
It may seem like there is a lot to consider when you buy a paint booth. It’s easy to get in the “let’s just get going and figure it out later” attitude. Selecting the right type of paint booth and developing a well laid out floor plan will save you thousands in the future. The main thing that folks don’t consider is if they need a heated paint booth to their booth in the future. Right now, they may not need heat because their business only uses it every couple days. But as the business grows and more business coming than you can handle…. you may want to add heat and make your booth work even harder for you. If you buy a Cross Flow, you won’t be able to add heat later. But our popular Side-Down Draft or Semi-Down Draft can be heated at any time… as long you as you consider a few things first to make your life easier later.

The WORKHORSE of our paint booth line is the popular semi-down paint booth, better known as the SD-1000. This model is used worldwide for automotive and industrial applications because of the durable and dependability it offers our customers! It is used by more start-up auto body shops than any other model because it can handle heavy workloads with ease!
Designed to move air across the vehicle in much the same manner as the more expensive booths, air is pulled from the cleaner upper levels of the shop. Once air enters the booth through the half canopy, it moves in a cross-downward angle (down and across) to the exhaust filters, located at the opposite end of the booth. By utilizing a filtered canopy along with filtered ceiling panels, the air is filtered twice, making it one of the cleanest booths on the market today.
The SD-1000 Semi-Down booth is designed to work with or without an air makeup unit. Air Makeup Units allow you to be more productive because it can cure your paint job in under an hour. Many customers choose to add the air makeup unit to the booth at a later date. This allows the shop owner to purchase equipment in stages, adding additions and modifications to their SD-1000 Semi Down Booth when they can afford it.
Manufactured in North Carolina, the SD-1000 Semi Down Booth is easily customizable to add length, width, additional light fixtures and more! We can manufacture and ship quickly to anywhere, worldwide!
