GFS’ galvanized Paint Mix Rooms provide a controlled area for safely mixing paint. Wall panels are fabricated from 18-gauge unpainted galvanized sheet steel, and are pre-punched and companion flanged for easy nut-and-bolt, on-site assembly. Our Mix Rooms also contain a convenient 4 in. deep, built-in containment base for potential spills.
GFS’ Industrial Paint Mix Rooms are constructed with single-skin, 18-gauge, G-90 galvanized steel.
Pre-punched booth panels and nut-and-bolt assembly takes the guesswork out of installing a mix room, and provides more structural integrity.
ETL and ETL-C Listed
Standard GFS’ galvanized Paint Mix Rooms are fully ETL
and ETL-C listed to meet all applicable industry safety and
performance requirements and facilitate successful inspections.
Safe Air Operation
A proven ventilation system, fresh air flows constantly throughout the enclosure to protect personnel from inhaling harmful vapors. To bring fresh air into the Mix Room, air is drawn from outside of enclosure and flows through filters to remove dust and dirt contaminants. The continuously moving down flow of air inside the enclosure forces harmful vapors safely through the exhaust plenum.
Safe Liquid Guidelines
The amount of flammable or combustible liquid stored in paint mix rooms must be within the following limits (per NFPA 33):
Paint Mix Rooms within 6 ft. of the spray area may contain up to 2 gallons per square foot of enclosure floor area but may not exceed 60 gallons (U.S.).
Paint Mix Rooms further than 6 ft. from the spray area may contain up to 2 gallons per square foot of enclosure floor area but may not exceed 300 gallons (U.S.).
Air is drawn from outside of enclosure and flows through filters to remove dust and dirt contaminates. The down flow of continuously moving air inside the enclosure forces harmful vapors safely down and through the exhaust plenum.
Room Air Exchange
The chart below identifies the air exhaust performance data when Mix Rooms are properly installed and are outfitted with clean filters. Airflow at 680 cfm meets the optimum air exchange rating.
Air Exchange per hr
Each Paint Mix Room ships with the following:
Personnel door with an 18 in x 24 in observation window
High-efficiency, T8 fluorescent light fixture(s)
Assembly hardware and installation drawings
White, pre-coated panels
GFS guarantees that our products meet or exceed all of the applicable codes related to the equipment. Our engineers regularly follow and contribute to the advancement of codes and standards that affect the industries that we work in. One of our engineers currently serves on the NFPA Technical Committee on Finishing Processes, a key standard in the finishing industry.
Per NFPA, paint mix rooms MUST contain an automatic fire extinguishing system. GFS does not supply these systems.
