GFS’ Large Equipment Paint Booths are designed for long-lasting performance and constructed of high-quality materials for unrivaled structural integrity. As the industry’s most comprehensive paint booth line, you can count on Large Equipment Booths to deliver a superior quality finish in the most efficient manner. 

The Large Equipment Booth line offers extensive pre-engineered models and options. GFS will also work with you to custom build a paint booth in virtually any size and configuration to meet your specific requirements.


Heavy Duty Materials & Construction

GFS Large Equipment Booths are constructed from single-skin, 18-gauge, G90 galvanized sheet steel and use steel columns and beams. Horizontal booth panels are assembled onto the booth’s frame from the ground up for added structural integrity, simplified installation and fewer height restrictions. Solid nut-and-bolt construction and pre-punched panels ensure consistent alignment and placement.

Fans & Motors

High-powered fans and motors supply optimal airflow through the paint booth, creating a cleaner environment for a better paint job. Each Large Equipment 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.

Safety Equipment

To ensure the safety of painters and equipment, a manometer and air solenoid valve are included with all Large Equipment 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.

Custom Options

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:

  • Crane slots
  • Three-stage filtration
  • External bridge options
  • Seismic location considerations
  • Conveyor openings
  • Man lifts
  • Fall protection
  • Outdoor booths


Selecting a Booth Size

Use the following guidelines to help you determine the appropriate size booth for your needs:
  • Interior Width: Add 5 ft. to the width of the largest item that will be put in the booth (include fixture or pallet size)
  • Interior Height: Add 2 ft. to the height of the largest item that will be put in the booth (include fixture or pallet size)
  • Interior Depth: If the booth does not have doors, add 3 ft. to the depth of the largest item that will be put in the booth to ensure clearance at the rear of the booth. If the booth has doors, add 5 ft. to the depth.

Additional Sizing Considerations

Global Finishing Solutions' Sales and Design departments ensure that the booth and shop are configured to best accommodate the customer's painting and finishing needs. The following items must be considered when determining booth size, location and configuration:
  • Conveyor: Width must be sufficient to allow finishers to complete their operation within the allotted time. Spraying should not be completed less than 2 ft. from the conveyor opening.
  • Bridge Intake Chambers with Solid Doors: The booth opening dimensions are decreased by 2 ft. in height and 4 ft. in width on a booth with a bridge intake chamber. Take this into account when determining booth and door size.
  • Filtered Doors: Account for a decrease in the size of the booth opening of 4 ft. in width when using filtered doors on a booth.
  • Door Swing Range: Allow for sufficient space for filtered or solid swing doors to open fully to allow product entrance. If space at the front or rear of the both is limited for product entry and/or exit, bi-fold, tri-fold, sliding and roll-up doors are available as options on GFS Large Equipment Booths.



The most cost-effective airflow style, crossdraft Large Equipment 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

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.


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.


Superior Lighting

Designed for optimal brightness and color matching, light fixtures are strategically placed for precise, complete lighting. 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 Large Equipment Booths.

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 Large Equipment Booth includes a swing-type product door (either filtered or solid, depending on airflow and pressurization) and at least one personnel door.

Depending on the layout of your booth, shop space and paint line, custom 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.


Control Panels

An electromechanical or Velocity™ control panel is included with each Large Equipment Paint Booth from GFS. Electromechanical control panels are suited for non-pressurized booths, and are used to operate booth exhaust, safety interlocks and lights. The deluxe Velocity control panel offers additional features, including a touch screen interface, management of spray, cure and flash modes and auto-balancing on pressurized booths.


GFS’ complete engineering staff includes mechanical, electrical and code compliance experts to ensure that you can achieve all necessary permits and stamped drawings for your new paint booth. GFS Large Equipment Paint Booths are perfect for industrial manufacturers and businesses looking for a safe, clean, code-compliant environment for painting large equipment, vehicles and other products. Our booths are designed to meet all applicable safety codes, and many components in GFS Large Equipment Booths are UL or ETL listed.


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. 



Pre-engineered Large Equipment Booths are available in a select number of sizes and are comprised of GFS' most tried-and-true features. By eliminating the need to custom engineer each and every booth, we can provide you with the flexibility and quality you need, fast.


Pre-engineered options are commonly selected and purchased by GFS customers. Pre-engineered options give GFS the ability to provide a wide range of customization without adding a great deal of cost of lead time. Pre-engineered options include add-ons like additional fluorescent bulbs or LEDs, special doors or windows and a pre-coat white finish.


To meet very specific configuration and usability requirements, GFS offers highly customized options that are designed and engineered on a project-by-project basis. These options require additional lead times as well as coordination with a GFS representative, and include crane slots, three-stage filtration, external bridge options, seismic location considerations, conveyor openings, man lifts and fall protection.
