Default Portable spray booth

Building a portable spray booth.

Erecting a popup tent is the answer.

Just cut out an opening for a box fan and add a furnace filter. Add some lights. done.

Pretty neat.

I can see a few issues, the biggest being wind. You would likely want to watch weather forecasts carefully to avoid setting it up when adverse conditions are expected. Also, using stakes a little more substantial than he did would be a good idea.nWonder if there are any exterior tie down loops on it so ropes could be attached on the sides higher up and then secured to the ground?

No way he will get it back in it’s original bag. But I wouldn’t even try so that shouldn’t be a big issue. Using some fans that can be reversed to suck air out would probably be helpful in getting it as compact as possible.

I am guessing that for most of us, a smaller version of this would probably suffice.

All in all, a neat concept with a few relatively minor issues to deal with to make it workable.

We regularly use an ezup tent, drops on grounds and wrap in plastic. Cut a slit for opening. We set it up inside garages preferably but outside too. Cabinet jobs on site as I donít have a dedicated spray shop. Works pretty good!

This particular job we used the tent as a drying room and sprayed outside of it in a garage that we covered in plastic. Worked well!

Also, you need room to set up, worry about puncture wounds or air leaks, vandals and for $2-$3000 one could build a pretty good booth. Sorry, I won't be buying one any time soon. Most of the places I have worked would not have room for me to set up such a monster.

Not a bad idea but I think I'd go for something more like this: https://www.amazon.ca/Caravan-Canopy...&rd=1&s=sports because an open end could be an issue.

Yes Iíve thought about those as well, however the plastic allows light to come through and is a lot easier to set up and break down. If I didnít have a trailer on my side yard Iíd put a 10x50í one of those up and do them at home

For a $60 ezup and some plastic and tape it does the job! Itís definitely not perfect and if outside, as in today, the wind can become an issue, so we are spraying in tent and then drying inside the house(kitchen cabs).
