I am very fortunate to have some paying work going on in the shop right now. I have been wanting a place to do some spraying and finally I have the opportunity to section off a 10’x12’ area of my garage semi-permanently for this purpose.
Basically it’s the back corner of the garage. I have already put luan on the ceiling and now I just need to section off the remaining two sides. I want something I can put up and take down fairly easily, but also something that will last. It has been on my mind to just use some clear plastic drop cloths and tape them up, but my mother mentioned using some canvas drop cloths instead (the tan ones that Lowe’s sells for cheap).
Instead of taping it up, I could just tack it up (which would hold better and I could probably just roll/bundle it up to the ceiling when it’s not in use. The same could be done with plastic, but it’s more prone to tearing and getting holes in it.
The canvas is heavier than plastic so it would hang better.
I can think of two reasons why plastic may be preferred.
What do you guys think?
I plan on creating some positive pressure in the boothe with a small fan, well if it’s even needed. I will be spraying only water based finishes in the room.
