The biggest advantage to a downdraft paint booth is cleanliness. Air is drawn around the vehicle or painted object and exhausted from underneath the object. Downdraft paint booths pull paint overspray and contaminants downward and away from the painted object no matter where the painter is spraying. The risk of dust and overspray contamination is greatly reduced and the painter is also in a much safer environment since the overspray is pulled immediately downward and away from the painter no matter where he is standing. Finishes are generally cleaner and can translate to money saved by reducing buffing and corrections after the finish is dry.
The ITALIA paint booth system is also available in a pitless downdraft design where the entire paint booth and mechanicals are installed on a raised steel basement with drive-up ramps. This avoids the need for concrete work and still gives all the benefits of downdraft airflow.
