My only question is : Where do the fans exhaust to ?Regarding the explosion proof fans …..My Dad was in hospital last year and they refused to let us bring in a fan from home because it didn’t have an explosion proof motor on it and because there were Oxygen outlets in his room.

Thanks for all the cool comments everyone, and thanks for the welcome Dan. Dusty56, when the outside temperature permits, I use the booth outside, under a car port cover in case it rains. In the winter I use it a heater workshop with no exhaust to the outside else it would suck all the warm air out of the shop in about 3 minutes flat. The filters seem to catch so much over spray that I am unable to find any residue the next morning (for example the table saw is clean, so is everything else. I haven’t tried this yet but if I install some 2 micro filters I bet the “tower” would function as a decent air cleaner. When spraying inside I wear a mask until I exit the shop because the filters do not absorb anything, they just give the over spray something to cling to.

Welcome CMUnique spray booth and fan system.good job. I don’t know about others but incorporating your comments with your photo (instead of the comment area of the post) makes the print to small to easily read. Thanks for sharing you great Idea.

If you are spraying water based finishes, would a vapor explosion even be possible?
Great idea, and the cube method of fan support and wall support is great.
For larger items you could also use a shower curtain to enclose the area behind you a bit more. The fan could suck the air over the top and down into the fans, which is more ideal of an airflow.
Running them as a air filters for a couple of hours before you spray would be good too, it would drop the airborne dust level down to nearly nothing.

Compared with my PVC stand with plastic drop cloths and only one box fan with furnace filters on both sides, your design is far superior. Thanks for the great idea!

Very cool idea. I’ve near done any spray work before, but in the future, I’ll be keeping this project in mind, thanks!
