Heavy Duty Materials & Construction
GFS Large Equipment Paint Booths are constructed from singleskin, 18-gauge, G90 galvanized sheet steel and use 8 ft. x 10 ft. structural 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 prepunched panels ensure consistent alignment and placement. 

Superior Lighting

Designed and manufactured by GFS for optimal brightness and color matching, Large Equipment Paint Booths feature integrated four-tube, inside-access fluorescent light fixtures. Light fixtures are ETL and ETL-C listed, and they come complete with T8 ballasts and color-corrected tubes.

Fans & Motors
High-powered fans and motors supply optimal airflow throughout 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/CUL and CSA recognized three-phase, TEFC, tri-voltage motor.

Booth Doors
Swing-type product doors (either filtered or solid, depending on airflow and pressurization) and at least one personnel door come standard with each pre-engineered Large Equipment Booth. Doors feature heavy-duty hinges with plate steel and replaceable brass brushings. Hinges guarantee long-lasting performance with no sagging.

Safety Features
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 light covers are open. Limit switches come standard on pressurized booths to safely shut down spray guns when the booth doors are open.

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: Add 5 ft. to the depth of the largest item that will be placed in the booth.

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:
  • Square Footage: Ceiling heights and floor space must be sufficient to accommodate the booth’s exterior dimensions as well as the dimensions of other product offerings, such as Paint Mix Rooms, Dust Collection or Hazardous Material Storage Buildings.
  • Shop Height: GFS recommends that you allow 3 ft. between the top of the booth and the shop ceiling to allow space for maintenance, installation and an exhaust fan, if they are positioned at the top of the booth.
    Note: Outdoor Large Equipment Booths are available for locations with limited shop space.
  • Maneuvering Vehicles and Equipment: Depending on the floor layout and sizes of the products being painted or finished, it may be difficult to move product into and out of the booth. Make sure there is sufficient space to move around corners and approach the product doors straight on.
  • Bridge 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 chamber. Take this into account when determining booth and door size.
  • 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 booth 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 and General Purpose Booths.
  • 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.

Crossdraft

The simplest, most cost-effective configuration, air flows horizontally through a crossdraft booth, parallel to the floor and over the product. Crossdraft airflow starts at the front of the booth, with air entering the booth through either filtered products doors (non-pressurized booths) or an intake chamber (pressurized booths). Air exits the booth through an exhaust plenum located at the rear of the booth.

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.

Downdraft

Generally accepted as the best airflow style, downdraft booths do an excellent job 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 and manufactured by GFS for optimal brightness and color matching, Large Equipment Booths feature integrated four-tube, inside-access fluorescent light fixtures. Light fixtures are ETL and ETL-C listed, and come complete with T8 ballasts and color-corrected tubes.

Lighting Options

Six-tube fluorescent light fixtures with T8 ballasts are available to provide additional lighting in critical areas without additional installation costs. Light reflectors can be added behind fluorescent bulbs to achieve greater luminosity.

Four or six-tube LED fixtures are also available for added brightness and energy savings. These fixtures use GFS standard 48 in. inside-access fixtures and twist-style replacement.

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 and paint line, optional 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

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 Large Equipment Paint Booth line from GFS. For non-pressurized booths, the electromechanical control panel is used to control booth exhaust, safety interlocks and lights. The Velocity control panel comes standard with pressurized booths and features an Allen-Bradley PLC and HMI, making it simple to navigate. Velocity supports spray, flash and cure modes along with many programmable alarms, an auto-balancing system (on pressurized booths) and automatic safety checks.
