Automotive paint booths are built for performance. Code compliance, safety, and proper ventilation are the basis for the need, however, automotive finishing requires much more power, airflow performance, and cleanliness to reproduce a factory finish.
Accudraft’s MX series paint booths provide the most options and flexibility when deciding what fits your shop best. The MX series paint booth systems are available in semi downdraft, side draft, and downdraft configurations. Single wall or dual skin construction and a multitude of air handler configurations allow you to build a paint booth that has exactly what you need in the shape and size that works best for you.
A crossdraft paint booth, also known as a “crossflow” paint booth makes air flow directly across the vehicle that is being painted from the front doors to the back wall of the paint booth.
A semi downdraft paint booth operates much like the crossdraft or crossflow paint booth because the incoming air is toward the front of the paint booth and the exhaust is still achieved through the rear of the booth.
A side draft paint booth operates by bringing in filtered air through the ceiling and exhausting it through the sidewalls of the workspace.
A downdraft paint booth produces a draft pattern that runs straight down from the ceiling to the floor and is the most efficient and clean option available on paint booths.
