There is a lot of area to illuminate in a heavy-duty truck paint booth, which is why your lighting should be engineered for optimal brightness and energy efficiency, in addition to meeting code requirements. After all, better lighting in your paint booth can go a long way toward achieving better paint finishes.
A paint booth in an earthquake-prone area should be designed and installed with components that make the booth meet code. This could include a higher gauge of material for the walls and roof, sturdier construction in the fastening of components and additional anchorage of the booth to the ground.
For facilities or operations that generate dust, the risk of an explosion is a lot higher than you might think. Assessing the risk — and implementing additional safeguards, as needed — is not only necessary to ensure the protection of your workers and facility, it is now required by code.
Driven by a need to maximize limited floor space and reduce curing times, infrared curing has gained popularity in both prep and paint processes. Learn how to integrate REVO Accelerated Curing Systems into every step of your refinishing process.
Paint booths are designed to contain hazardous vapors and provide a safer, healthier environment for painters. Understanding how the components of a paint booth work and what purpose they serve are key to maximizing your spray booth’s performance.
Clogged or overloaded filters hinder proper airflow. This causes dust or overspray to recirculate and affect the finish of your paint job. Regularly changing spray booth filters decreases the likelihood of equipment failure. It also helps ensure your spray booth is operating efficiently and keeps the production costs of your shop low.
Whether you are looking to purchase a new paint booth or have a current booth without an air replacement system, it is important to understand how the air that is exhausted from your paint booth is or will be replaced.
With most of the focus on increasing throughput and upgrading to the latest technology, the importance of excellent paint booth lighting is often overshadowed. It should be a high priority — as better visibility in your paint booth will help you produce a better finish.
While curtains are more affordable than doors and may offer more flexibility for product entry, they do not provide the level of protection from contaminants that is needed for the best possible finish. In this post, we will examine the differences between curtains and filtered doors on an open front paint booth.
Over the years, there have been many aspects of paint booth technology that have evolved to reduce energy consumption and be more efficient, while also contributing to a more effective paint environment. Not only do these technologies reduce the environmental impact of operating a paint shop, but they also lead to a cleaner, brighter and more productive shop.
