The spray booth is 11’x11’ with 10’6” ceiling. I cut 3/4” plywood into 2” strips and made 4 sets of frames. Drilled holes in two of them, placed 3/8” tee-nuts in one of those and stacked it under a solid frame which gets attached to the ceiling. The second drilled frame gets 6” bolts and washers that bolt into the tee-nuts and suspends the third frame that the fabric walls are stapled to. (Leaving a 4.5” air gap at the top as a fresh air inlet) The fourth frame is stapled to the bottom for weight and to stabilize the walls once the exhaust fan is turned on. A series of Shade Tape (w/ rings) allows the curtains to fold and collect near the ceiling when raised without hanging down too far. Small rope is looped through the Shade Tape and closed eyelets to raise and lower the panels. The exhaust fan is a 24” box with a recycled furnace squirrel cage fan, (2) 24”x24”x2” pleated furnace filters and a 5” tall exhaust port that tucks under the garage door and two panels that close off both sides of the exhaust fan that are held in place with a few rare earth magnets. Constructive criticism is always welcome!!
thanks for looking,
