ventilation?

I am looking for a booth to perform spray tannning in with good ventilation. I have found that they are very expensive. I think my husband may be able to build one for a lot cheaper. Are these booths really that necessary? How messy is airbrush tanning?

Re: ventilation?

My disty just did a airbrush demostration (sp) saturday and I went to check it out because I'm looking in on airbrushing as well. They have a ventilation fan. It's looks just like a square floor fan with a air filter attached to one side of it. The overspray didn't look bad. They did it in the middle of the room. Buy a pop up overspray tent or build one yourself that looks really nice.

Re: ventilation?

I have pictures of a home made "spray booth" if you will PM me I sure will send it to you. Basicly it is 3 shower walls with track lighting and 2 exhaust fans in the back. Looks pretty sharp. you can get the stuff you need at Home depot or Lowes for around $300-400. We thought about making them to distrubute but the shipping would have been too high.

You will need to be sure to get a booth if you gowith an AIRBRUSH system but a HVLP or a LVLP it isn't necessary. (if you are spraying it right)

hope this helps

Re: ventilation?

You are from Idaho! So am I!:)Where at in Idaho are you from? Your description of the home made booth sounds very much like what we were designing. What type of exhaust fans did you use?

Re: ventilation?

I would have your husband build one or yourself. It really is very straight forward to build. All you really need to do is build a platform and connect the wall or walls to it. You can use many different products to create the walls. Cut out two 18" holes for the ventilation on the back wall one at about 4" to 6" off the top of your platform and the other about 8" to 10" above the top of the lower fan. Then cover the holes with some small metal wire fencing(forgot the correct name but its like what you would use if your making a small rabbit cage or covering the bottom of your deck so animals won't get under your deck). I painted the metal mesh black and ran a plastic trim around the outside edge to finish off the cutouts for a nice smooth finish. Make a shelf that will hold the fans. Buy some batten at Walmart(1/4 works fine) for the filter (works the best nothing get through to your fans and its cheap). Create whatever kind of brace system at the top to support your walls at the top if needed and cover the top with fabric or whatever else you would like to use to help keep the spray in.

I built something like this and it turned out very impressive looking. It is heavy and not made to be moved around. I covered all the Malonite walls and flooring with basic stick on tile, really finishes it off nicely and you can pick whatever colors and patterns you would like. The overspray in the room is basically completely elimanted. I built mine for about $200. You can get quite elaborate with your overspray booth and about the cheapest I think you could ever build one is about $125. Most you see on the internet use a bathroom style fan for exhaust. I recommend using two box fans, moves much more air and is easier. Just start looking at the overspray booths on the internet and run some ideas through your head. It really is quite easy to build.

Re: ventilation?

Jrher at least 8 hrs my brother is living in moscow and it takes him atleast that long.
PS they have bathroom Fans that have removable filters I would highly suggest using those. If not make a mesh bag to hold a couple of old rags on the outlet of the fan

Re: ventilation?

It's a reduction fan , made by Lasko 800-233-0268 to locate a retailer of them near you.

Lowes , yard birds, ect carry them, get the reusable filters to save.

Model # 3900

Hi Jennifer,
I have been researching how to have a booth built as I cannot afford to buy one. I wear a mask while spraying; however, I know that it can still get in the mucas membranes through eyes' etc. I would Greatly appreciate it if you would forward me a pic of your home made spray booth. My email is rjreghetti@gmail.com ... Thanks & Blessings,
Renee' Jordan Reghetti ~
