Looking On The Bright Side of Options

A Guide to Spray Paint Booths

There are so many different contributors to the concept of cost-effective productivity and most of them are products of technology and innovation. No doubt one of those contributors in making production easier and faster is the spray paint booth. Nowadays, spray paint booths are versatile enough to take on all kinds of manufactured products such as tiny plastic components, toys, furniture, cans, vehicles, trucks, and even large assembly lines. But aside from ensuring cost-effective production, they also provide added safety for workers and the environment they’re working, specifically preventing hazardous stuff from leading to contamination and spills.

If you happen to be tasked to find the right spray paint booth for your organization, the first thing you must know is that there are three primary configurations to choose from. The three configurations are open-faced booths, pressurized booths, and non-pressurized booths.

First, the most notable attribute of an open-faced booth is that it only has three sides, where two sides act as the walls and the third is the back wall. For instance, Marathon spray booths come with a ceiling fitted with exhaust ventilation as well as a work bench. For the most part, spray paint booth specials like this are ideal for use in woodworking and furniture finishing applications.

Meanwhile, non-pressurized booths are considered as a level higher compared to the first type we discussed. It’s literally the opposite of an open-faced booth as it is designed to be enclosed, but usually come with one or two doors with varying sizes for the purpose of accommodating different product sizes which need Marathon finishing quality. The non-pressurized booth usually is built with a specific ventilation based mainly on the intended use for that booth. Non-pressurized spray booths are today used in a wide range of industries such as auto manufacturing and finishing, fiberglass, and metalwork.

Finally, pressurized booths are somewhat similar to non-pressurized types, more specifically in shape and size. The difference only is that this variety has the capability to adjust the amount of air inside the booth. This capability is made possible with the use of an air makeup unit or AMU. As a result of this amazing functionality, the booth prevents the entry of any kind of airborne particles, including dust and dirt. It is a popular option for truck manufacturing and refinishing, as well as in electronics manufacturing.

But no matter what type of spray booth you pick, the fact remains that all of them are designed not just to keep the costs of production low, but also provide added protection to workers. To be specific, spray booths are capable of minimizing the risks which are associated with the exposure to chemicals and harmful substances such as basecoats, paints, solvents, thinners, and adhesives. Also, spray booths also limit the possibility of chemicals leading to explosions in the workplace.
