How much will a professional spray booth cost?

If you work with industrial paints and sprays, then you’ll already understand the benefits of working with a spray booth. Not only can a spray booth make for a cleaner and more expert paint finish, but it can also improve air quality and make conditions safer for professional finishers. Booths can vary greatly in expense, starting from around £2,000 and going right the way up to £100,000 (and beyond) for the largest and most complex machines.

Which professions use a spray booth?

The most obvious industry that comes to mind when it comes to spray booth usage is the automotive industry. The sheer volume of vehicles that are painted, as well as the size of the vehicle parts themselves, mean that automotive companies can comply with safety regulations whilst improving the speed and accuracy of the paint job when using a booth. But, the list for the professions that will benefit from a spray booths goes much further than this. Joiners, engineers and aerospace professionals are all likely to use a spray booth when working with high volumes of goods.

Spray booths are a legal requirement for many industries and professions. COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) legislates that employers must limit employees’ exposure to hazardous substances. There’ a workplace exposure limit of 20 micrograms per cubic metre in the UK but it’s advisable to keep this figure as low as possible. In short, if you’re consistently using spray paints and would benefit from a dust-free environment and a longer-lasting finish (that makes for a safer working environment and protects your workshop), a spray booth could be for you.
