Painting Systems

Paint Anytime, Anywhere

GFS has successfully implemented portable painting systems for several unique aerospace applications at government and commercial sites. The Portable Painting System is unique because it:

  • Allows painting on any shift, at any time, with no impact to concurrent activities. No more painting in the middle of the night!
  • Can be tailored to any aerospace application by designing new interfaces.
  • Supports LEAN by bringing the process to the aircraft.
  • Captures contaminants and recycles air back into the ambient environment.
  • Complies with EPA and NFPA regulations.


Painting and Production Disruptions

In the aerospace industry, painting cannot always be accomplished in an environmentally controlled paint booth. Some painting simply has to occur in the factory or the hanger because certain surfaces can't be accessed at any other time. Environmental Safety and Occupational Health professionals evacuate staff to prevent exposure to hazardous materials. This has direct adverse impact to production. The key to the Portable Painting System is the Environmental Control System (ECS):

  • Three-stage aerospace NESHAP-compliant filters to capture particulate, including chromates
  • Activated carbon filters to capture volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Safety features, including a VOC gas monitor and chemical fire suppression
Designing Your System

We use a proven approach to developing Portable Painting Systems.

  • Systems Engineering: We employ a systems engineering approach to delivering portable painting systems tailored to your specific application.
