These spray booths are manufactured and designed for code approval. All models are manufactured from materials that meet the requirements of the National Board of Fire Underwriters, as recommended by the 2000 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA33) requirements. They are also built within OSHA guidelines. We advise you to check with your local authorities as to any "local" electrical or fire codes that may apply.
We encourage you to install your Silver Edition Spray Booth yourself if you have the time. Each booth comes with assembly instructions and numbered panels for ease of installation. Depending on how handy you are, you and a couple of friends can get your paint booth up in 2 to 3 days. Should you want a professional installer we can recommend someone in your area. However, this cost usually runs $2,000 - $2,500. If you install your booth, this is a big savings to you. You will need an electrician to wire and hookup your power source.
You will need an exhaust/duct work system to exhaust fumes to the outside of your building. They are optional with the purchase of a Silver Edition paint booth. The exhaust/duct work packages provide straight duct (no elbows) with a length of 20 feet to top, where there are shutters to the outside.
Silver Edition booths are manufactured to be assembled and operated in an enclosed area away from the weather. An additional building structure is required for an outside location.
All the basic items are supplied. All booths are supplied with totally enclosed motors and tubeaxial fans ranging in diameter from 12" to 42" and are equipped with motors ranging from 1/2 hp to 10hp. All the hardware, fasteners and sealants needed for installation are provided, as well as intake and exhaust filters, draft gauge and glass. They feature bright, full-booth lighting from four-tube, 48"-long, 32-watt fluorescent light fixtures (light tubes not included). All fixtures are UL listed and approved for their intended use and location. Control switches, light bulbs other electrical components are to be purchased separately. These manufactured booths are designed to comply with all OSHA, NEC and NFPA 33 regulations as required by most permitting agencies. (Check with your local code enforcement agency for any local codes that have to be met)
There are, however, a few items that we do not supply with the booths. These include 48" fluorescent light bulbs (because they are prone to breakage in shipping) and electrical wiring kits (starter, switches, conduit, etc). Wiring codes vary widely from state to state and even from county to county and we have found it is just more cost effective for our customers to have a licensed electrician provide all the necessary components.
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression is a requirement that varies by area. We do supply fire suppression systems (Badger Industry Guard) at very competitive prices and with the labor included in the price. However, you can purchase a fire suppression system locally. These systems can be included in your lease or financing if needed.
