GFS’ General Purpose Paint Booths are high-quality, cost-effective solutions for industrial manufacturers and businesses that need to paint equipment, utility vehicles and trucks that are too large for traditional automotive refinish booths but too small for our Large Equipment Paint Booth line.
Our validated General Purpose Booths are fully ETL-listed and meet or exceed government standards. They feature excellent lighting, airflow and filtration for achieving high-quality paint finishes. Precision engineered and manufactured with durable materials, GFS General Purpose Paint Booths are designed to last many years of use.
General Purpose Booths are constructed from high-quality, 18-gauge, G90 galvanized sheet steel. Quality components including plate steel door hinges, friction-style latches and precision-punched vertical panels ensure longevity, safety and excellent structural integrity. Once the booths arrive at your site, they are constructed with sturdy nut-and-bolt construction by trained technicians.
General Purpose Paint Booths are fully ETL-listed, ensuring that the entire booth complies with applicable safety codes. ETL listing makes it easy to obtain necessary permits and stamped drawings, ensuring worry-free planning and installation.
High-powered fans and motors supply optimal airflow through the paint booth, creating a cleaner environment for a better paint job. Each General Purpose Paint Booth includes a non-sparking, tube axial exhaust fan(s) with belt guards and duct connector ring, along with a UL and CSA recognized three-phase, TEFC, tri-voltage motor.
To ensure the safety of painters and equipment, a manometer and air solenoid valve are included with all General Purpose Booths to maintain an optimal working environment inside the booth. Manometers monitor overspray build-up on exhaust filters, while air solenoid valves prevent spraying in the booth when fans are off or a door is open. Limit switches come standard on pressurized booths to safely shut down spray guns when the booth doors are open.
One of GFS’ greatest strengths is our ability to provide our customers with highly specialized products. The following pre-engineered options can be added to GFS Large Equipment Booths:
To meet very specific configuration and usability requirements, GFS offers highly customized booth options that can be fully integrated into Large Equipment Booths. These options include:
The most cost-effective airflow style, crossdraft General Purpose Booths offer reliable performance at an affordable price point. Since there is no pit to dig, crossdraft booths are also easier to integrate into existing facilities. Air flows horizontally through a crossdraft booth, starting at the front of the booth and flowing over the product or part and into a filter bank in the booth rear.
Side downdraft booths are an economical solution for shops that aren’t able to install a pit. Air comes into the booth through a full-length, filtered ceiling plenum, and flows downward over the product. When air reaches the floor, it is pulled into floor-level filtered exhaust plenums on both sides of the booth.
The semi-downdraft booth is a hybrid combining features of both crossdraft and downdraft booths. Air is introduced to the booth through the ceiling in the first 25-30 percent of the booth. It’s then pulled across the working chamber, over the vehicle and into the filtered exhaust chamber at the booth rear.
Generally accepted as the best airflow style, downdraft booths do an excellent job of controlling overspray and contamination. Air enters the booth through a full-length, filtered ceiling plenum. From there, air flows vertically over the product and into the filtered exhaust pit in the floor.
Designed for optimal brightness and color matching, General Purpose Booths feature angled ceiling lighting that is strategically placed for precise lighting and minimal shadows. Our light fixtures are manufactured in our own factory for consistent quality and are ETL or ETL-C listed to remain in compliance with industry standards. Four-tube fluorescent fixtures with T8 ballasts come standard on all General Purpose Booths. However, many light and fixture options are available to customize booth lighting to meet your needs including LED bulbs for added brightness and energy efficiency, six-tube fluorescent fixtures and light reflectors for increased luminosity.

Doors & Windows
GFS doors and windows are designed with durability and flexibility in mind. Each pre-engineered General Purpose Booth includes a swing-type product door and at least one personnel door. Depending on the layout of your booth and paint line, custom engineered doors and configurations – such as roll-up, bi-fold or drive-thru – may be right for you.
Observation windows come standard in all personnel doors, but can also be added to booth walls and certain product doors to monitor robotics, painters or booth modes.
All GFS control panels are UL-listed and make it easy to manage your booth’s safety features and environment. Two control panels are available with the General Purpose Paint Booth line from GFS. For non-pressurized booths, the electromechanical control panel is a cost-effective solution used to control booth exhaust, safety interlocks and lights. The Velocity control panel comes standard with pressurized booths and features deluxe controls, complete with a touch-screen interface. Velocity supports spray, flash and cure modes along with many programmable alarms, an auto-balancing system (on pressurized booths) and automatic safety checks.
GFS guarantees that our products meet or exceed all of the applicable codes related to the equipment. Our engineers regularly follow and contribute to the advancement of codes and standards that affect the industries that we work in. One of our engineers currently serves on the NFPA Technical Committee on Finishing Processes, a key standard in the finishing industry.
GFS’ direct gas fired air make-up units provide an economical source of replacement air. AMUs maintain a constant air temperature regardless of the air temperature outside of your building, allowing for balanced building pressure and proper comfort levels, without drafts. By continually replacing contaminated booth air with fresh, heated outdoor air, staleness and added impurities in the painting process are easily avoided.
There are many AMU options and arrangements available to fit your needs and accommodate the layout of your paint booth and facility. Regardless of the configuration, all GFS AMUs are constructed from sturdy, high-quality materials.
