The Semi-Down Paint Booth: A Workhorse For Your Shop

SD-1000-ModelThe 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. SD-1000 with AMUAir 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!

Install Your Own Paint Booth & Save Thousands

There is a huge distinction between being “Handy” and being a “Do-It-Yourself-er”. I am not necessarily “handy”, which is great because the handy friend always gets asked to help build a garage for your neighbor or a brick patio for your mother. Nope, I’m not a “Handy” person, but I am a practical DIY’er. I figure; if I can learn how to do something correctly, why pay someone else to do it for me?

Having a professional installer might seem like the ideal situation. After all, some bigger jobs are a bit scary at the beginning. But, Installers are expensive… and if you’re like me, why pay someone else between $4,000 and $8,000 (depending on type of booth and if it’s heated) to do something that you can do for FREE? That could be more than 1/2 the cost of the booth!

“Did you say I could do it for free?”  That’s right! You can save all that money and do it yourself! Don’t worry — We have specifically designed our booths to be easy to install for the average person and a friend that is willing to help. Don’t worry about all the electrical components, we recommend that you hire a licensed electrician to come wire and connect your power source once your booth is in place.

DSC_0039bwHow do we design these booths to be easy to install?

First – We pack your booth with almost everything you will need to install it with the exception of your light bulbs (those tend to break in the shipping) and your electrical wiring (local codes vary) … You won’t get halfway through putting it together to find your missing a part to finish the job.

Second – We give you really exceptional directions on how to set it up and labeled panels, including a 1-800 to call with any questions or issues you run into. Our paint booth expert installer, John, is excellent at walking you through it.

Third- We send you the best materials to help you put it together fast, and correctly. Not every paint booth out there is easy to install….. What sets us apart from the competition is our progressive use of the TEK screw to fasten your booth together.  Now, you wouldn’t think a screw would make all that much of a difference but picture this: You’re on a ladder, reaching across two paint booth panels. While trying hard to keep your balance, you have to line up the holes on these two large pieces of metal, keep together your nut and bolt and then use a wrench to tighten it all together. Not so easy.

Now, imagine this: You’re on that same ladder; a drill in one hand and the other hand is on the joint… holding the screw. You slowly put the drill on the screw, hit the button… the screw zips in, securing the panels and your done. Easy, right?

 

Why do we use these TEK screws instead of nut and bolt assembly?

Lining up holes and assembling nuts, washers and bolts can be frustrating when dealing with large panels of metal and ladders. The TEK Screw is not always understood, sometimes because it seems just too easy. Cut the number of steps necessary to complete your installation by using screws that are self-drilling (meaning they drill their own hole) and then tap threads to combine the two pieces of metal.

All of our paint booths use TEK screw technology because they were specifically designed for use in sheet metal building construction to withstand the rigors of heavy use and increase the speed of construction. The TEK Screw is by far the easiest and fastest assembly method on the market today.  Watch our video on the Tek Screw vs. Nut & Bolt assembly to see just how easy it really is.

There are many stages between researching your new paint booth options and walking in your new booth to start painting. Our team is here to help you during each step. With over 20 years of experience, we’re experts in our field. We’ll help you find the right booth, customize it and get it setup to use! Let’s get started.

How to Build a Paint Booth

homemade boothFor around $200 in materials, anyone with some basic construction skills can create a paint booth. Isn’t that scary? There are hundreds of sites and discussion boards online giving tips on how to build a homemade paint booth, and no two are the same. When looking into building your own homemade paint booth, just whom are you getting advice from? Do they know anything about the proper flow, safety, and design of a paint booth or are they just really crafty?

There are really only two methods: one too common & one correct.

All too common:

DIYer heads to their local big-box store to buy supplies (plywood, 2x4s, nails, any type of light fixtures, two HVAC fans, HVAC filters and some vinyl sheet for ductwork.)  DIYer cleans out a corner in the shop or garage and builds a booth. No worries about airflow, adequate filtration, egress or other such nonsense.  It may require a couple of attempts to get this part of the project just right.  Once complete, DIYer brags to their buddies about how inexpensive this project really was.  Once painting starts, DIYer leaves a door cracked for ventilation, leaving a high potential for an explosion or a fire. Overspray coats the item (due to poor air flow), the items around the booth (due to poor containment) and the items outside the shop (due to poor filtration).  DIYer dials 911 when the paint-soaked plywood ignites.

Price comparisons often keep hobbyists from exploring other options and considerations. It is possible to buy a pre-engineered spray booth manufactured in a high-quality shop and based on a proven design.  The booth comes with detailed installation, operation and maintenance manuals as well as experienced professionals available to answer any concerns.  Contractors come on-site to complete the booth’s electrical, fire and ducting systems to ensure the highest safety.  Once a permit-of-occupancy is obtained from your local permitting authorities, you can enjoy the quality and productivity that your new spray booth provides for many years. [Plus, you can get extra work from the first guy after his fire.]
