Mustangsaly the florescent fixtures in a body shop are outside the booth with a piece of glass to isolate them between the booth & fixture. or there are explosion proof florescent fixtures. all switches and receptacles should be outside the booth. as a licensed electrician I should not say this, but in the 80s we had a 14x24 shop for a paint Booth with florescent lights recessed into the wall and not isolated with a sealed piece of glass. I was younger and braver then. they make about everything in explosion proof.

lowROLLERchevy anything electronic has an explosion potential

all the lighting ixtures ive sen for booths are sealed from the fumes

the proper way to use them would be to use clear plastic, and thenplace the lights OUTSIDE the booth

Lighting a Paintbooth or getting LIT

Needing to pick out lights for my temp paint booth and want to use 4' shop lights and a friend said it may ignite the paint fumes.
I've looked through most of the forum threads and did'nt really see any specific information on fluorescent lighting having an explosion potential. In fact I've seen many booths with this type of lighting. I know they actually make explosion proof fixtures but I've never seen them in a fluorescent type.
What is the risk of using these lights inside a temporary plastic paint booth with a positive pressure system?
