At one time, someone set up a spray booth. Recently, I overheard this mentioned during a tour to a prospective member as a selling point. I would like to use the spray booth. How do we proceed?
is spray booth the foam thing in a wood frame in storage?
That would be the thing.
Ah. from what I heard, you set it near an exit and it has a fan in it which can help vent it. not exactly sure though
This is correct. It is the “foam thing in a wood frame in storage”.
If you want to use it:
- open a door (either the small door or garage).
- unfold the hood (3 panels with hinges) so the fan points outside
- put the “lid” on top
- put it away
At some point, we need to:
- design and build a new paint hood that will store flat and where the lid is easier to install
a) I think this should be on wheels and stored against the wall next to the small door so that one person can set up the hood with minimal effort.
- come up with an SOP
- come up with some rules about what can and cannot be used in the paint hood.
You should also run a fan outside the booth wall by the filter, directing air out the garage or man door. You should have the door open only a couple of feet. Please protect the floor from your finish and stick to safe finishes. Also, use a respirator when spraying.
