Real booth filters for the home booth

Ok... So I think one of the reasons I am getting dust specs in my clear is that I am using basic furnace filters for intake and exhaust. The other thing I noticed is the exhaust filters get loaded up with paint when painting base and clear very quickly.

So I decided to try to get some real booth filters. I tried calling Florence Filters based on another members recommendation. Sorry, don't remember who it was or what thread. They were very nice and helpful but only sell filters and grids by the case. It would by over $300 to get started. I have a lot invested into this paint job but if I buy 20 intake and 20 exhaust filters for this project, I may have 15 of each sit around for another year or more before I will need them again.

So I know my paint store sells filters but I have to know exactly what to ask for otherwise they are little help. But I did notice that Grainger sells filters that they claim they are for paint booths.
Grainger Catalog Page On Booth Filters
They look similar to the Florence Filters but have a trade mark name of Air Handler. Looks like they would work and are purpose filters for booths but I can't tell if they are tacky.

Has anyone ever tried these filters from Grainger? Impressions?
Thanks

Which furnace filters are you using, if it's those cheap blue ones there in no wonder your getting junk in your paint, they cant filter squat.

As long as you pick the proper filter from the chart I do not see a problem..If your filters are loading very quickly then consider more filter area..or look at the type of filter..the ones from grainger can work just fine..
