Paint Booth Reviews: Which Configuration Is Right for You?
There are three main paint booth configurations: crossdraft, downdraft, and side downdraft. Each has its own set of pros and cons, which means it can be a bit confusing knowing which is the right choice for your shop. We break each type down here.
Crossdraft Spray Booths
One of the main selling points of a crossdraft booth is affordability, as they require no concrete work (this also makes them easier to install). You don't get as clean a finish as you do with a downdraft model, but adding an air make up unit improves your finish dramatically.
Downdraft Spray Booths
If your goal is getting the cleanest possible finish, a downdraft configuration is the booth you want. Air enters the booth through the ceiling and moves across the work area before exiting through an exhaust system in the floor.
All of that said, a downdraft booth is not always your best option. First, if you don't already have a concrete pit or raised floor, you have to install one, adding significantly to the cost. (If you already have the proper flooring, there's not much difference in price.) Whether downdraft is best also depends on the size of the object you're finishing, as they aren't as effective on large equipment.
Side Downdraft Spray Booths
These models bring in air through the ceiling the way downdraft paint booths do, but exhaust it through the sidewalls. This means you don't need the concrete pit (and extra expense) required by a downdraft model while still getting the superior finish.
But, is the side downdraft paint booth better? Not necessarily. It has its own construction issues, namely the ductwork required for the sidewall exhaust system. In some cases, this ductwork may actually cost you more than the concrete pit required by the downdraft booth.
Side downdraft booths also present a logistical problem, since the operator often stands in the path of the overspray. All that said, this booth is a great option for smaller shops or those where you need the quality finish of a downdraft but floor alterations are not possible.
