Having the most advanced spray booth technology and suitable lighting is crucial to the success of your results. After all, how can you expect to produce groundbreaking results if your set up isn’t up to a high standard? Quite simply, you can’t. 

Quite often, businesses try and cut corners with their spray booth organisation – and it shows with the work that they produce. Colour mismatches and patchy paintwork jobs are the results of inadequate spray booth features. So, you must equip yourselves properly so that your business can produce the best results possible for every job. 

If you’re constantly producing poor standard work, word will soon get around – and that’s the last thing you want. Therefore, having state of the art spray booth technology within your setup is vital to delighting your clients and becoming well-known as the “go-to business” for all things spray paintwork. 

We understand it can be confusing when getting into the specifics of the different technology available. So, in this post, we’ll outline everything you need to know about implementing the right spray booth technology for your individual needs. 


We’ll cover: 


What is a Spray Booth?

Whenever motor vehicles and aircraft need a paint job, they’ll be taken to a spray booth for the work to be carried out. Spray booths are a well-lit, enclosed space for the paintwork to be carried out so that consistent overall quality can be obtained. They’re designed to achieve the best results possible and ensure that nothing can, unfortunately, hamper the job at hand. 

For example, if you’re trying to produce amazing paintwork in a dusty environment, the dust itself will stick to the paint and will leave a rough and unprofessional finish. As a result of this, not only will you be left with an unsatisfied customer, but you’ll also have to carry out the work again. This would be a waste of both time and money for your business.

Ensuring that a quality job is executed isn’t their only purpose either. When working closely with paints, several hazards can be posed upon your team members’ health. Toxic fumes from the paint can be strong and can be harmful if people are exposed to them too often and directly.

So, spray booths create a safe environment for team members to work in at all times. After all, while high standard work is a top priority, nothing should be put before the health of your overall team. Without a team to carry out the work, you then have no product or service to provide your customers with. 


What is Spray Booth Technology? Is it Important?

Spray booth technology mainly refers to the lighting that you’ve installed. Although, there are high-spec ventilation options that you can install to make your spray booths super-efficient. 

A lot of businesses are often put off at the first sound of advanced technology as they automatically think it means added expense. But what if we were to tell you that it actually saves your business money in the long run? Whilst the initial investment will undoubtedly be more than your bog-standard lighting solution, you’ll be operating more profitably. 

High-specification lighting means that your spray booths are best positioned to produce amazing results at the first time of asking. Whereas, poor quality lighting will mean that you’re more likely to make mistakes and have to spend further time and money on getting it right.

High-quality lighting is also hugely cost-efficient. An average lighting product may need more installations and more lights themselves to reach an adequate level of lighting. Adding further installations will only cost you more initially and will be lucrative to run on a daily basis. If you can reduce your operating costs and up your profitability, surely that’s a win-win for all businesses? 

Advanced technology solutions are also more environmentally friendly. As we’ve mentioned, inside the spray booth, there are a lot of toxic fumes that need to be disposed of correctly. If you don’t have the right technology, they’ll be released into the fresh air and increase air pollution levels – something that no business wants to contribute to.
