Painting and Decorating Made Easier!

The following factors are essential to produce high quality spray paint jobs. Ones that are not too different from the jobs done in a professional setting.


1. Air Dryer System. Consider moisture the enemy. An air dryer greatly reduces the chances of water getting on your work. The dry air produced aids in atomizing the paint supply.


2. Oil and Water Filtration. Specialized filters remove oil and water droplets and vapor. If you choose to ignore these factors, be prepared for the results. A ruined paint job for one.


3. Particulate Absorption Pads and/or an Air Circulation System. In this set-up, the paint booth is designed with a positive flow air evacuation system. Its “vacuum” removes dust particles, lint and other particulates from the air. Note: It is the most costly and most effective system available in association with using a electrostatic spray system.


4. Direct Lighting Source. The idea is to eliminate all shadows cast on the object that you are painting. Overhead and horizontal lighting needs must be met to have an equally lighted space. A few tips:


TIP: Wide field halogen lights do well at a distance.

TIP: Assembling one or more fluorescent light support racks on wheels is your best bet.

TIP: Remember: The more angles there are in/with the objects you are painting, the more light you need focused in each and every direction.


When building a spray booth, it is important to know the volume of work you intend to use it for. Invest in a spray booth in proportion to use, proper sizes, budget, and profit margin. Also, the availability of a skilled “spray system” painter and finisher.


If it’s for a one-time use, use a temporary spray booth system, or set-up. You do not want your spray booth to cost more than the profit you figure that you will make by using it.


More important: You do not want your spray booth to cost more than the profit you need to make from completing the job right.



A suitable spray booth on the job can ensure the success and profitability of the job.
