Home Built paint booth..EXTREME

Iím in the process of building my own place to learn and perform auto restoration.

The back story is so long........ where do I start.... obsessed with automobiles..... that about covers it.

I need my own place to do body work and paint. I am against doing it in the same building I fab, so another building had to be built.

The flow though the building will be like a down side draft paint booth.

Air from attic vents will come down and out through fans installed in the windows.

fans are 36" diameter.

The left and right side of the booth will be the same (except the entry door, of course).

Fans are in place. 12,000 CFM each.

I have marked all the locations where lights will be placed.

I think I will use that pink insulation on the walls. It goes on easy, it's water proof, it's cheap, and I think I can paint it white.

I spent the last week "sealing" up the building.
I am going away for the next month..... My brother in law will work on the booth when he can. I promised some people it will be DONE in 2 months .

I have not got around to cutting out the gable vents. This is where all the air will be pulled in.

Looks like a nice building, what are you using for intake air filtration because the inside of the booth will be negative pressure and all the air coming in will be outside air? How are you controlling your exhaust fan speed...you don't want to take out too much air movement or your paint could have problems with popping? One last Question, did you allow for a floor drain in the concrete, not a deal breaker but they are always handy?

The building looks great and I'm sure your paint work will be much cleaner than if you had build this booth in the metal and body work area. That was real good thinking on your part and will only help in minimizing any contamination.

The black area is where I will be placing gable vents/filters. One on each side. The air will go into the attic and pass a second set of filters before it enters the booth.

I have no way of controling fan speed. These fans are not suited for a speed controler. I am afraid of having too much air flow. I have been thinking of ways to reduce air flow. Is too much air flow a bad thing?

I really ball parked the fans CFM. I reviewed paint booths that are a similar size. They move about the same amount of air.

And I do not have a drain. I will be pushing the water out with a broom.

It does sound as though you have thought long and hard over building your booth...and there's nothing wrong with pushing water with a broom...just easier with a drain but I understand.

Let us know how it all works out and congratulations, that first paint job is always exciting.

Learn something from how turbochargers are designed. Too much airflow can be dealt with by ducting the intake for the fan and having a gate that either pulls air from inside, or from outside. (i.e. bypass the booth if you have too much airflow, then you can adjust how much bybass is used until you get the right airflow) Kind of like a waste gate in a turbocharger.

The compressor will be in the other building. The "fab" area. Gonna run piping over to the paint booth.

It is an 80 gallon Kolbalt from Lowes.

Thank you. Once I get the booth running I will perform some simple test to test the air flow. I hope all is good . I tryed to make this booth as close to a production booth as I could. I hope all my head aches will pay off.

paint booth

Do your exhaust fans have sealed motors... that is, are they approved for use in areas where they will exhaust FLAMMABLE air? If not, you may be asking for trouble. Also, what means will you have to dry the compressed air?
