DIY garage spraybooth


I do wrap doors and spray wood glue on the super wood before wrapping the doors. I do have to construct a spray booth. I am thinking of installing a low pressure fan with a high flow rate in stead of an extractor fan. I will make an opening in the wall for the air to exit. Will it work?

The HVAC section may be of more help.

A filter on the front end would also be useful for keeping neighborhood dust out of your booth.

a garage spay booth is a dangerous proposition. it can be done but please be sure to check all local codes. you will have to spend quite a bit of $$ for vapor tight lighting and outlets. good luck.

Yes, you can do this. Years ago, I did something similar in order to paint a car. I used heavy plastic drop-cloths.

It is not an ideal set up, by any means, but can work temporarily.

You're going to run into several potentially serious issues:
1. Combustible materials that could explode.
2. Outside debris being sucked into the booth & contaminating the product.


As others have suggested, you might want to check with local building codes & ordinances.

Is the stuff you are spraying flammable? Is it meant to be sprayed? Certain materials are combustible, but can become flammable when atomized through a sprayer. You should be able to tell from the MSDS or manufacturer's info. The characterisitcs of the material are important to the design of your booth. You need to be careful with positive/negative air pressure relationships with the rest of the building. Pushing air into a spray booth can cause a positive relationship relative to the space outside of the booth. Air inside will leak out of every gap taking spray fumes or particles with it. You also need to consider "make up" air to replace that which you are exhausting. Will it come from the rest of the shop area and if so how does that air get replenished? Relief air dampers on an outside wall? Do you have capacity to condition the relief air (heat or cool it)? If necessary, you need to consider explosion proof lighting. Static discharge?
