Global Finishing Solutions (GFS) delivers the industry’s most comprehensive line of paint booths and finishing equipment. GFS’ Large Equipment Paint Booths are designed to produce a superior
quality finish in the most efficient manner.

In addition to an extensive line of standard models, GFS can custom
build a paint booth in virtually any size and configuration to meet your specific requirements. GFS will work with you to determine the best solution for your needs.


Selecting a Booth Size

Deciding on the right size paint booth isn’t always an easy task. Use the following guidelines to help you determine the appropriate size booth for your needs.

Width: Width of the largest item (including fixture or pallet) plus 5 feet

Height: Height of the largest item (including fixture or pallet) plus 2 feet

Depth: Depth of the largest item plus 3 feet (clearance at the rear)

Additional Sizing Considerations

Conveyorized Booths: Width must be sufficient to allow finishers to complete the finishing operation within the allotted time. Spraying should not be closer than 2 feet from the conveyor opening.

Bridge intake Chambers w/ Solid Doors: Decrease booth opening by 2 feet high and 4 feet wide on a booth with a bridge intake chamber.

Filtered Doors: Decrease booth opening by 4 feet wide when using filtered doors on large booths.

Doors: Door openings must accommodate the dimensions of the object being brought into the booth.


The following standard features come on GFS Large Equipment Paint Booths:

Complete Package

GFS Paint Booths are shipped complete with everything you need to build and operate it, including wall panels, fan, motor, doors, intake and exhaust filters with grids, light fixtures and tubes, controls, assembly hardware and installation drawings.

Heavy-Duty Panels

GFS truck and large equipment booths are constructed and rigidly reinforced with single-skin, 18-gauge, G-90 galvanized steel.

Solid Construction

Pre-punched booth panels and nut-and-bolt assembly takes the guesswork out of installing a paint booth, and provides more structural integrity.

Solid Back or Drive-Thru Configuration

Paint booths can be designed with a solid back or as a drive-thru configuration.


Downdraft Design

Generally accepted as the best airflow style, downdraft booths do an excellent job at 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.

Side Downdraft Design

Side downdraft booths are an economical solution for shops that can’t afford or 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 either side of the booth.

Crossdraft Design

The simplest configuration, crossdraft booths use an exhaust fan to pull air in at one end of the booth. Air may pass through a filtered door, enter the working chamber unfiltered or be pushed through a pressurized intake plenum. Air flows parallel to the floor, across the vehicle and into a filter bank at the booth rear.


Superior Lighting

GFS paint booths feature integrated 4-tube, inside-access fluorescent light fixtures. Light fixtures are ETL-listed and come complete with T-8 color-corrected tubes.


Personnel Doors

Each booth includes at least on personnel door, depending on the size of the booth.

Product Entry Doors

Booth product doors can be filtered or solid.

  • Used only with non-pressurized booths, filtered entry doors allow product entry and exit while filtering the input air. These doors attach to the front of the booth and do not add depth.
  • Solid entry doors are used in pressurized applications to enclose the booth.
  • Product doors can be either 2-panel swing or 4-panel bi-fold. 4-panel bi-fold doors are shown.


Deluxe Control Panel

Included on all booths with air makeup units The UL-listed Deluxe control panel is designed for a single-point wiring connection. All control wires are numbered for easy wire identification and all components are labeled to match electrical schematic. A terminal strip is included for field wiring.

  • NEMA type 12 industrial panel with door-mounted disconnect switch
  • Magnetic motor starter with overhead heater & 120V control coil
  • Air solenoid for safety interlock (120 V)
  • Light switch, 120V or 277V

Insight Control Panel

Included on all booths with cure cycle A PLC-based, UL-listed control system with an intuitive, simplistic touch screen, the INSIGHT control panel allows you to continually monitor all systems for safety and function. Pop-up displays indicate running information and faults.

  • NEMA type 12 industrial panel with door-mounted disconnect switch

outdoor booths

If space is limited, an outdoor paint booth may be your best option. GFS’ weatherproof outside paint booths consist of three parts: the interior booth, the structural games, and the exterior shell.

  • The interior paint booth is constructed of 18-gauge galvanized steel panels, insulated to R-12 value.
  • The exterior shell consists of 24 & 26-gauge pre-coated ribbed steel panels, supported by structural steel frames.

GFS’ outdoor booths are constructed to meet the same code requirements as our indoor booths, in addition to IBC and ASCE7 codes for wind, snow, and seismic loads.


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.
