Aircraft Prep Booths

For High-Volume Aerospace Facilities & Aircraft Hangars


For busy aircraft shops and hangars, Aircraft Prep Booths from Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS) are the ideal solution for increasing production and improving the overall paint job. Processes such as sanding, stripping and masking are better performed in a separate booth. Moving these operations to a prep booth helps keep dust and dirt out of the paint booth.

Aircraft Prep Booth Product Info

With the addition of a GFS Aircraft Prep Booth, production can be greatly increased. Since non-painting duties can be accomplished in a prep booth, the paint booth can be used exclusively for painting. This cuts the overall shop time in half.

Incorporating a GFS Aircraft Prep Booth is a smart economic decision. Since prep booths do not require the high airflow of paint booths, they operate at lower energy levels, resulting in cost savings.

Environments for Paint Removal
and Surface Preparation

A successful paint job begins with surface preparation. Before an aircraft can be repainted, it must be stripped of existing paint and masked for the new paint job. Surface preparation is better performed in a prep booth. By performing non-painting duties in a prep booth, as opposed to the paint booth, busy aircraft shops and hangars can improve production, cut energy costs and improve the overall paint job.

Using a prep booth for surface preparation can drastically reduce production times, since one aircraft can be prepped while another is being painted. This means more aircraft can move through your shop, resulting in higher profits. In addition to cutting production times, using a prep booth can trim energy costs. Prep booths require less airflow than paint booths, therefore consuming less energy. Paint jobs are also improved when you keep dust and dirt from the prepping process out of the paint booth.

GFS designs prep environments for your paint removal and prepping processes, whether it be sanding, grinding, blasting or chemical stripping. As with paint booths, GFS can custom design a prep environment to accommodate the dimensions of specific aircraft or for aircraft parts and components.
